About Real Outfitters
Hunting in Texas with Real Outfitters is a true Texas hunt.
Our company is owned by hunters who know what they want in a hunting experience, and focus on making the customer receive the best Texas hunting has to offer. Our goal is to provide a great hunt in a natural, low fence environment. We have managed our ranches responsibly beginning 13 years ago, only harvesting mature deer. Through the years, we have developed a strong Whitetail and Axis deer population on our ranches in Eden, Texas and now in Ft. McKavett, Texas. With nearly 20,000 acres and 55 blinds and feeders, our hunters enjoy a serene environment and ranches miles long by miles wide with no crowding. Our year-round feeding program helps supplement mother nature and support big, healthy animals.
