There are some rules set for hunting at Las Catarinas that are in line with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. We do not allow unethical or illegal hunting. For a successful hunt, here are some of the rules that we have set:
The Hunter possessing a firearm for hunting should be a legal US resident (US Citizen or Green Card Holder). Per US law, anyone who is not a legal US resident should never possess a firearm which is a severe penalty.
Practice a lot with the ammo and the gun you plan to hunt with prior to coming at Las Catarinas. Make sure your gun is sighted-in prior to coming for the hunt. After coming to Las Catarinas, you will have the opportunity to practice on the small practice range we have.
Make sure you are familiar with all the hunting rules of the state of Texas. Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Website.
No native hunts (Whitetail, Turkey, etc) will be done during night time per Texas Hunting Rules. No exception!
Exotic hunting may be done Safari Style, via Blind or Stalk-n-Shoot. You are responsible for your ammo! If you take a wrong shot and hit the animal you didnt intend, you pay for it.
In almost all the cases, we have been able to locate the injured animal. However, after a certain period we are unable to locate the injured animal, you are responsible for paying the cost. This is a standard with almost all the hunting ranches. Nothing different.
Absolutely you cannot point a gun (loaded or unloaded) toward any individual even with the best of the intention. Anyone in violation of this will be immediately asked to leave the premises and deposit will not be refunded.
You only shoot the animal your guide points you to shoot. No shot maybe taken based on judgment. Once the guide tells you which animal(s) you can shoot, you may then shoot per your convenience.
Las Catarinas does not take the responsibility for the actions of individuals that result in accidents.
Payment should be made prior to leaving the facility. For the best hunting experience, please let us know in advance, how many hunters and guests will be coming and what animals you plan to shoot.
No garbage or cigarette shall be thrown anywhere on the land. All trash is to be disposed properly in the garbage cans. Remember: we dont want our animals to eat anything unhealthy.
We have 100% customer satisfaction rate and we will strive to keep it at that. Please do refrain from any activity on the land that is illegal per Texas or Federal Law. Ex: No Alcohol consumption while hunting, no usage of banned weapons on the land or smoking of prohibited ingredients.
