Happy M Ranch

"I have to say this was one of the best and most memorable hunts I have ever been on. I have to thank Chuck and his family that make up the Happy M Ranch for that 100%. I would like to thank them from the bottom of my heart from me and my family. We had a wonderful time and would love to make a yearly tradition of booking hunts with them on the Happy M."


"We are absolutely thrilled to have chosen the Happy M Ranch as the site for our first hunting trip. I was concerned that my 13 and 16 year old sons who have never hunted before would be a little impatient if we didn't see many deer. That concern was cast aside almost immediately. The ranch has plenty of deer, including some amazing bucks that are absolutely beautiful to watch. There were all kind of wildlife to see and enjoy, and the quality time in the blinds with my sons experiencing their first hunt was priceless. Mr. Chuck and Mr. Bobby were gracious hosts and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and understood the fundamentals of hunting safety and how to dress the deer, which was very important to us. The boys absolutely loved it and can't wait for their next hunt. The accommodations were great! Very comfortable and warm beds, clean showering facilities, and open living and eating areas. It was like being at home! We didn't turn on the TV a single night. One of the best parts was hanging out by the fire at night looking into the star filled sky. All three of us were amazed that we could actually make out the Milky Way and we actually saw a shooting star. We couldn't have scripted a better first hunting experience. We'll definitely be back!"

"I cannot say enough about the Happy M. What a hidden gem! In my profession, I get to look at a lot of deer throughout the year and when I say the Happy M has top quality deer, I mean it. Every hunt was action packed and you constantly find yourself wondering which giant was around the corner. Not only are the deer top notch, the lodging and meals provide comfort and relaxation when not in the stand. I was also very impressed by the terrain and the overall aesthetics. A ton of time has been put into manicuring this ranch (she's a beauty) and all of the hard work shows. The Meloy family is a very close family that strives on family values and the outdoors and they make you feel like part of their family while at the ranch. Thanks to the Happy M and all of the Meloy family for a great hunt and great memories!"

"We absolutely enjoyed ourselves at the Happy M Ranch where both my son and I shot our first whitetail deer. There are ample blinds situated in the most beautiful Texas setting and the wildlife is stunning. What an awesome experience!"
