If you have ever wondered if it is possible to find lots of wildlife in one location the answer is- Yes you can! These guys are experienced professionals and they know how to make the hunters happy and provide an exceptional hunt during the process. Thanks to Shawn Mcdonald and his staff for providing a memorable hunting experience. Hogs were harvested and friends were made. A+ experience all the way around.

I’ve had the pleasure of hunting with these gentlemen a few times now and each time was a perfect experience. They maintain the ranch very well and ensure that your hunt is as successful as you can get. Wouldn’t expect anything less from true Texas ranchers.

Shawn and Ryan took great care of us on our hog and turkey hunts. We followed their directions and got in the blinds at the right time, and they were spot on with their timing! We each got a hog and a turkey. So fun. Can’t wait to come back

– Colby Reese

I was planning a last minute hog hunting trip while passing through Texas and found Salt Fork Ranch. I saw only one review and it was terrible, but I gave it a shot anyway. And I’m so glad I did! I had a blast. Even though temps were over 100 degrees, I saw plenty of game and was able to harvest a nice boar with my bow. The owner/outfitter, Shawn, was super helpful and easy to work with. I’ve already told my friends about this place and we will be coming back.

When we made our arrangements with Shawn he was very clear with what he had to offer on his ranch. We had a very nice time hunting on the Salt Fork Ranch and looking forward to our next trip.

– Jim Wilson

Hardest working outfitter in the state of Texas! I killed a 10 point whitetail, a Rio Grande with a 9″ beard and two hogs for the freezer, all in 2 days. Thanks again Shawn, we will be back

– JR Hunt

Hi Shawn, Hi, I hunted your ranch and am featuring it in my new book Hunting With Father Tales of a Father & Son Coming of Age, Hunting the American West.

– Preston H. Long, Ph.D. – Three time author

I have known Shawn since Jr. High School and he was as passionate about hunting then as he is now. I grew up on a ranch in Wyoming, and have spent my life around hunters. Shawn brings integrity, a sense of humor and a love of the sport that makes every hunt an unbeatable experience. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
