The LaFonda is a working cattle and hunting ranch located in the arid brush country of southwest Texas. For the trophy whitetail hunter, the wing shooting enthusiast or the exotic game hunter, we can provide you with an unmatched level of personal service, five-star accommodations, and a Texas hunting experience that you will long remember.
The LaFonda Ranch covers 8,000 acres of prime hunting habitat that is meticulously maintained for all species of native game, and a broad selection of exotic animals as well. The terrain is gently rolling with a combination of mesquite flats, rocky hillsides and miles of beautiful flowing water on the Pinto Creek. The centerpiece of the LaFonda is our 27,000 sq. ft., five star hunting lodge. We can accommodate up to forty people in grand style without sacrificing the comfort and privacy of our guests.
And to go along with our first class accommodations, there is no better complement than our full-time chef who serves up a daily spread of what we like to call "Texas Gourmet". You won't go hungry on this hunt! Between hunting sessions our guests can hone their shooting eye on our regulation skeet and rifle ranges, or they can fish in our stocked ponds and scenic lake adjacent to the lodge. And during warm weather months, a dip in our swimming pool offers a welcomed respite from the summer sun. You can hunt at La Fonda year round.
Whitetail deer are the heart of our hunting operation, and our intensive deer management program is producing some outstanding Boone and Crockett trophies.
Enhancement of our native browse assures adequate nutrition. And the harvest of management bucks provides us with superior genetic reproduction from season to season.
The LaFonda Ranch is located in Kinney County, Texas, near the town of Brackettville. We are only 2.5 hours driving time from San Antonio and 3.5 hours from Austin. Private or corporate pilots may land on our one-mile paved and lighted airstrip. Or, if you choose to fly in by commercial airliner, the nearest airport with scheduled jet service is in San Antonio.
