A Waggoner-Sauder Tradition

The Nine Bar Ranch is located east of Decatur, Texas about 45 miles northwest of the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex area. The ranch is owned by the Waggoner-Sauder family, a fixture in the Texas ranching community since the early 1900’s. The ranch is comprised of over 12,000 acres of beautiful Texas scenery.

Whitetail Deer Hunts

We have some of the best in Texas Aoudad hunting. Indigenous to the Atlas Mountains and Barbary Coast of Northern Africa, aoudad sheep, commonly referred to as Barbary sheep, were introduced into the Northern Panhandle and Trans-Pecos mountain regions of Texas in the late 1950’s.

Red Stag

Here at Nine Bar we will you put you on a Trophy Red Stag that save you the price of an international airline ticket to New Zealand . We have a great selection of Trophy Red Stag Deer. From mid-August to the end of February, we offer hunts for Big Trophy Red Stag

Fallow Deer

Texas fallow deer hunting can be extremely challenging. These animals are very cautious and will flee immediately once they sense they are being followed. Nine Bar believes in allowing fallow deer to reach full maturity. This philosophy allows our hunters to harvest huge trophy Fallow.

Hog Hunting

Hogs, Hogs, Hogs! That’s about the best way to describe the hog hunting here at the Nine Bar Ranch. The sows have been working overtime and we have plenty of hogs to hunt. Most hunts are conducted from blinds over corn feeders, these feeders go off twice in the morning and twice in the evenings. Most shots are 75-100 yards.

Sika Deer

The Nine Bar is home to a substantial number of Sika Deer that provide a hunting challenge year round. These medium sized deer range from 25 inches at the shoulder to almost 40 inches with bucks larger and heavier than does. The color of Sika deer varies from a reddish chestnut brown of the does through to a dark brown to almost black coloration of the bucks. The antlers of the species are a great addition to any trophy wall. They are similar to the Elk antlers with four to six tines per side.

Scimitar Horned Oryx

We allow the opportunities to hunt and harvest the Trophy Scimitar Horned Oryx you’ll want to hang on your wall. Year round, we offer hunts for awesome Scimitar Horned Oryx. There are no seasonal restrictions on hunting the Common Scimitar Horned Oryx in Texas, which makes it a suitable trophy year round.
