About The Lazy J Ranch
Lazy J Ranch is a family-owned ranch founded in 1997 with just 750 acres. Since then, several neighboring ranches have been acquired and added to create the 9000 contiguous acres available for hunting and recreation today.
Deep In The Heart Of Texas
Located in beautiful central Texas near the towns of Marquez and Normangee, the ranch is convenient to Houston, Dallas, and Austin, and roughly 3 hours from San Antonio. Lazy J Ranch features 14 miles of Navasota River frontage, as well as a fifty-acre bass lake, and several smaller ponds perfect for fishing or duck hunting.
There are several high fenced areas on the ranch totaling approximately 2300 acres. Roaming inside the fenced areas are numerous trophy whitetails, both typical and non-typical, with strong South Texas genetics, some with racks measuring over 200 inches.
The ranch is also stocked with various species of exotic game. You’ll find sable, wildebeest, elk, bison, addax, and aoudad at Lazy J. Gemsbock, fallow deer, blackbuck antelope, oryx, dama gazelle, axis and many other varieties of exotic animals also call the ranch home.
Until this year, The Lazy J Ranch has not been open for public hunting. With the most recent land purchase of over 2725 acres, the family decided to open the ranch for select customers to enjoy. This is the first year that hunters can visit the ranch to hunt the exotic game as well as the monster bucks in the high fenced areas.
