Hunt The Historic Flying M Ranch

The Flying M Ranch in Archer County is the ideal North Texas whitetail deer and quail hunting destination. We offer full and semi-guided whitetail deer hunts on a privately owned 12,500 acre low fence, ranch. The 100 year old family ranch has only recently been opened to hunting and hunting pressure has been light so there is an opportunity to not just get a deer but to perhaps shoot a trophy buck! The Flying M Ranch runs a dedicated year round predator control and game management program under the guidance of The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation. The Flying M Ranch is a member of the Texas Tech Quail Alliance.

  • Expert guide service
  • Accommodations available in our Headquarters Lodge or Kicking Bird camp.
  • On site walk in cooler/cold storage, salt water wash down, cutting table, hanging rack and field dressing supplies at headquarters.
