To hunt this ranch is amazing! Here is what you can expect whether you're a seasoned hunter or a first timer:
- An owner who has a passion for hunting/guiding and delivers on his promises.
- Hospitality that is above and beyond what anyone should expect.
- Quality genetics: We saw numerous trophy bucks including my 160 class main frame 8 with its 7 kickers, a 3-beam buck that might score in the 190's, a slick main frame 10 that might score in the upper 170's, a young main frame 14 point with kickers that might score in the 180's and other gorgeous trophies.
- A gorgeous ranch that has a running spring, 100's of miles of views, 1st class blinds, feeders that work every time, etc.

If you're looking for a quality guided hunt from someone who has a passion for deer and isn't out to make a quick buck, look no further.

What an amazing sight to see all the trophy deer feeding during our recent hunt. While our hunt was successful it is amazing to see all the deer. The hospitality shown us is wonderful whether you are a new hunter or experienced. This being our third season hunting with you makes our time special when my kids unplug from phones etc and begin talking and hunting. This is special time I look forward to each year. Our clients enjoy the hunting and professional service you provide.

Please share this with your future clients if you wish.

I was skeptical in booking a trip because of the "high fence", "feeders", and 500 acres of area to hunt. I am used to hunting 2000 acre ranches in Wyoming of open terrain.

As I was bringing my 11 year old son with me on his first ever deer hunt I was hoping to at least see some bucks. From the moment we arrived at the ranch I felt like we made a personnal friendship with one another. Your attitude of "what's mine is yours while your here" was absolutely amazing.

From shooting the AR-15 to sighting in our own rifles at the range you have, my son and I both felt 100% welcomed. Your patience with my son was beyond words. From the never ending hog grunt call to the constant "can we fish then hunt hogs"! You were extremely patient and for that I am grateful to you.

As far as the hunt itself. It was about as far from "shooting fish in a barrell"'as I can think of. Yes there are monster bucks running around and despite our ultra tough hunt (weather was 83 one day and 42 the next) we could neverq pattern the deer.

High winds and spooky does made it difficult for the bucks to appear. Again, totally not like lining up the bucks by the feeders as some would expect.

After my son tagged out on a very nice mgt buck, it took 6 hunts before we jumped my buck up in the woods. You proved to be more than a guide, more than looking for the extra dollar, and more of a friend and boy did we have some good laughs. Grunt call and all.

Clayton, I personally want to thank you for the hunt of a lifetime for me and my son. I will be coming back with my 15 yr old daughter who has yet to bag her first buck. You have found a client for life with the Steeley family! Keep doing what your doing because its working well!

See you in December or January pal, lock us in.

Dear Clayton,

I would like to express my apprecition for the professional and personal attention showed my daughter, Holly, my niece, Haylea, and my brother, Daniel, on our hunt this past weekend. Your services at Stillwaters Ranch certainly exceeded our expectations.

While we knew you could not guarantee your hunters' success, it was obvious that you were working hard to do everything to help your clients succeed. Having hunted other day leases and marginal dear leases for many years, my brother and I decided to invest in a guided hunt for our daughters. This decision was a good one. My daughter has hunted with me for several years and we have passed on small does and bucks considered too small to shoot. Her deer taken from your ranch will be a memory not soon forgotten. Hunting with a professional guide made the difference, along with some patience and a few practice sessions at the range, so when the time came she could do her part to make a clean kill.

As a father, my biggest thrill is to see the love of hunting being passed on to my children. Though, I am quite content to enjoy the thrill of a hunt with my children I did see a few bucks that got my heart racing.

Hunting with you at your ranch was more than a guided hunt; it seemed like we were hunting with good friends.

Please don't hesitate to use me or my brother, Daniel Hearn, as a reference for any prospective client.

We will be booking with you again soon for next season.

Thanks for making our first trip to Texas a memorable one. The deer hunting was nothing more than fantastic, and your Texas hospitality was great. The ranch was beautiful, and the accomidations were very comfortable.
We would also like to thank you for teaching us a little bit about whitetail deer genetics. It made the trip educational as well as fun. We're looking forward to our trip back to see you next hunting season

Just wanted to say Thank You again! I had a great time and can’t wait to get my Texas Dall mount! The ranch is awesome, accommodations were very comfortable and spacious, and you were a great guide. I wouldn’t have changed anything about the hunt. I am looking forward to coming again next year and hopefully bringing some friends along with me. I would highly recommend Stillwater’s Ranch to anyone. You won’t be disappointed!
