Rancho El Zancudo is located approximately 45 miles south of Nuevo Laredo, in the Mexican State of Tamaulipas. Intensely managed, our premiere brush country offers ideal habitat for the whitetail deer and the wildlife enthusiast.


Experience the joy of hunting like never before – miles away from highways, cell phones, and the buzz of city life. Experience the excitement of spotting javelina, coyotes, quail, bobcats, and trophy-quality whitetail deer in some of Mexico’s Premiere and Prime Bush Country. Experience the warmth of Authentic Mexican hospitality and a home-cooked meal around the campfire.

With a game management program that is carefully monitored by our expert wildlife biologist, American-run Rancho El Zancudo offers a hunting experience that can’t be matched. Our experienced local guides and year-round supplemental feeding program ensure plentiful game for your entire hunting party. We handle all of the paperwork and other details so you can focus solely on the hunt. Getting back to nature has never been more fun. Your worries will melt away as you discover the truly unique brush country of Zancudo.

The brush country of Zancudo offers ideal habitat and plentiful forage for whitetail deer. In addition to the natural vegetation, our year-round supplemental feeding program supplements the growth and vigor of our deer. Our free-choice protein feeders and food plots provide an exceptional food source high in protein and fiber. To minimize the effects of drought years on game populations, we installed a unique game watering system in 2005. After all, healthy food makes healthy deer.

Our breeding program is aimed primarily at developing a plentiful stock of trophy-quality whitetail deer, ideally rating 150-200 Boone & Crockett points. In fact, the ranch is currently offering a rare opportunity to hunt essentially virgin territory: The only deer harvested between 2006 and 2009 have been cull and management bucks along with doe. All trophy-quality bucks were utilized as breeder bucks during that time. Now, those bucks are ripe for harvesting.

Hunts and Pricing

Our hunting packages include transportation to and from the Laredo, Texas airport. All meals, lodging, guide service, preparation of trophy antlers and cape for taxidermy are included as well as all necessary paperwork is provided and handled by us with NO hassle to you. We provide excellent World Class 5 Star Accommodations and superb Cuisine! Private Charter flights can be arranged from Laredo, TX direct to the ranch if requested in one of our comfortable R44 Helicopters for an additional fee. Whether it’s the hunt of a lifetime you are looking for or just a good old fashion Mexican vacation filled with R&R, let Rancho El Zancudo be your destination of choice.
