The land

Escondido was founded in 1996 by Tilden native, Leo Quintanilla, fondly known as the ‘South Texas King.’ A philanthropist and conservationist, Leo has always held a deep passion for our natural resources and is considered one of the great stewards of land conservation in South Texas and beyond. Now a landowner of over 50,000 acres in South Texas and New Mexico, Leo is committed to serving the land and takes great pride knowing that his ranches are still family-run and operated to this day.

We Prioritize Wilderness Conservation

We operate under a land-first policy. We know that catering to our land using the top land management practices produces better environments for our game to thrive. It is this commitment to conserving our ecosystems that validates Escondido Hunting as one of the premier game-hunting ranches of both South Texas and New Mexico. We determine our hunting limits seasonally, based on close observation of that particular year’s unique conditions. In committing to this practice, we ensure there is an optimal number of animals on each of our ranches for both land and mammals to flourish season after season.
