Barasingha Deer Hunting Texas

An African Hunting Experience in Texas

The 777 Ranch’s legendary reputation is due to the love and dedication of its owner, Jeff Rann. For more than 50 years, Jeff Rann has dedicated his life to being a wildlife conservationist and fulfilling the role of African Dangerous Game Professional Hunter. He has brought that wisdom, experience, and dedication with him to the 777 Ranch here in the U.S, and created something amazing.

Thanks to his admirable goal of bringing a little bit of Africa to Texas, he has brought together more than 60 species of native and exotic breeding herds from 80 countries and 5 continents. Though this incredible group of exotic animals has too many species to name, you can expect to find zebra, wildebeest, Thomson gazelle, scimitar horned oryx, Iranian red sheep, impala, buffalo, whitetail deer, and Barasingha deer hunting. Additionally, there are multiple lades that include some of the best Florida large mouth bass for fishing. 

The region has a very high natural protein habitats, one of the highest in the United States. The Wahia bush that is located in South Texas is comparable to the South African Acacia bush. The Wahia bush is responsible for the impressive natural horn growth on the 777 Ranch.

Keep in mind that the trophy fee doesn’t include the cost of booking a guide and paying for the animal to be processed after the hunt.

Breathtaking trophy big game seems to be everywhere! 777 Ranch is a prime Nugent family annual destination and Jeff Rann is my Spirit BloodBrother.

I toured the 777 this weekend and was extremely impressed at the job these guys have done there. The animals are fantastic with so many different species and such large groups it is truly amazing. It was like going back in time to Africa when animals were abundant. With the future of so many endangered species looking very bleak we should all be proud to have facilities like the 777 that will help preserve animal species for humans to enjoy well into the future. Thank you 777 for the wonderful animals that you guys raise insuring species survival for so many that are about to become extinct in their native homelands. Job well done!

Went to the 777 this weekend. Had an incredible time. We had Steven Rann as our guide. He was fantastic! Though the doves were not moving, he made the experience so enjoyable that we could have cared less about no dove. He took us around and showed us all of the incredible species that the 777 offers. The whole staffed catered to anything we need. They took such great care of use. We will definitely be back to chase some big game with Steven!
