Wildebeest Hunting at 777 Ranch

If you are an avid hunter, there is likely an animal that you dream of hunting. Unfortunately, many of the top targets and prizes are located in Africa and other destinations that are challenging to get to. One animal that is the ultimate price for many hunters is the African wildebeest.

The wildebeest, which is often referred to as the gnu, is in the same family as cattle, sheep, and goats. However, the wildebeest is faster, stronger, and more aggressive than the other animals in this family. Today, it only lives naturally on prairies in southern Africa.

While the wildebeest lives naturally in Africa, those that are in the United States now have an option much closer to home to hunt for this animal. At the 777 Ranch, which is located in South Texas, the wildebeest roam free. There are a variety of reasons why coming to this ranch is an ideal option for anyone that would like to hunt the wildebeest or any other exotic animal found outside of the United States.

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!
