Who We Are
Double B Outfitters manages the Badgett ranch. The land has been lightly hunted by family members for the past 17 years under a strict management program. In 2008, Double B made its ranch available for public hunting under the same strict management program set forth by the ranch owner, Greg Badgett.
The ranch is hunted in different ways, depending on the pattern of the deer and the most comfortable method for the hunter. Double B utilizes permanent, ground and box blinds but guides also rattle and stalk to ensure their hunters have the best possible experience while maintaining a heard of the finest Texas whitetails around.
Double B offers an abundance of eight and ten point 130? to 140? bucks. We also have a few 150? class animals. Our goal is to increase this number by lowering the hunting pressures that force large deer to go nocturnal. We implemented a protein program on the ranch in March 2008 for our deer herd.
Hunting in Texas
Texas has a wide range of temperature variability during the winter months. Beginning in November and into March, one should prepare for cold weather particularly in the evenings and early mornings. Warm clothes and thermals are essential. A medium insulated or down jacket is appropriate. Be sure to include warm socks, gloves and a scarf. Otherwise, regular camouflage hunting gear, hiking boots with ankle supports and a hat are sufficient. We are known to have unreasonably warm days in the spring months, so lighter clothing is also recommended. Casual clothes for dinner attire in the form of blue jeans is just fine. In Texas and with Double B, Hunter Orange is not required during the hunt.
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) offers licenses online.
For our trophy hunts, we only house eight hunters at one time. These numbers allow us to keep the hunting pressure on the ranch low on a week-to-week basis. The new lodge is complete and offers two private rooms with bathrooms in each, a large community room for entertainment and a kitchen with a common washroom. The lodge sleeps eight guests at a time. The 10? wrap-around porch is a place for leisure when our hunters wish to enjoy a quiet evening observing the feeding station at the camp as the sun sets in the background. The view from the porch is captivating and the abundant wildlife that strolls by is mesmerizing.
