The 45,000 acre Killam Laredo Ranch is conveniently located just outside the city limits of Laredo, Texas (in western Webb County). We have one of the oldest and most consistent private Wildlife Management programs in all of South Texas. Our previous Wildlife Biologist (Frank Matthews) started our deer management program in 1977 and managed our White-tailed Deer for more than 30 years.
Most of the Killam Laredo Ranch is leased to friends and close associates of the Killam family, and many of them have been hunting on the same leases for decades. The remaining portion of the ranch, approximately 10,000 acres, is reserved for the Killam family. Our buck harvest on the family pastures focuses on removing as many of the lower-end mature bucks as possible and only harvesting a few of the exceptional Trophy Bucks each year.
However, in 2005, we began offering a limited number of management buck hunts and a few trophy buck hunts to outside guest. Not only will you be able to contract a guaranteed* hunt for a heavy horned mature buck up to 170 B&C, you will also get to experience the type of hunting that the large ranch owners in South Texas reserve only for themselves. It is very likely that you may see, and be able to photograph (for personal use only), true free-ranging trophy class bucks on a low fence ranch.
We welcome men, women, and young hunters to this unique experience. Laredo Ortiz Ranch not only offers a guaranteed* hunt but also the convenience of staying at our ranch lodge.
