Animals
Beeville, Texas

Common name

Scientific Classification

 

The "Brush Country" is home to numerous animal species. In addition to the White-tailed Deer, other species are Javalina, Wild Pigs, Wild Turkey, Mountain Lions, Bobcats, Coyotes, Raccoons, Ocelots, Marguays, Ring-tailed Cats, Opposums, Skunks, Badgers, Jackrabbits and Cottontail Rabbits. Many ranchers have introduced exotic species such as Nalgai, Black Buck and Fallow Deer. South Texas is famous for the sheer volume of animals compared to the rest of the country and that is why ranches are so sought after in this area.

Hunting - The White-tailed Deer season starts each year with an October Bow Hunting season and then continues until mid- January with a rifle season. South Texas is known for growing large antlered deer and many Boone and Crockett record book deer are taken each year. Freer and Cotulla Texas are hosts to famous annual "big buck" contests. Morning and White-wing Dove season runs from September through early November and provides outstanding shooting as well as numerous social opportunities for South Texans to get together. Many area restaurants will prepare your Doves for after-hunt events. Quail hunting is another big draw to South Texas. The season usually runs from early November until the end of February. Bee County in particular is famous for its fine Bobwhite Quail hunting and each year, George Bush comes to the Farish Ranch for an annual hunt.
