Field dressing: Also known as gralloching[1] (/ˈɡræləkɪŋ/ GRA-lə-king), is the process of removing the internal organs of hunted game, and is a necessary step in obtaining and preserving meat from wild animals, such as deer. Field dressing is often done as soon as possible after the animal is killed to ensure rapid body heat loss, which prevents bacteria from growing on the surface of the carcass. Field dressing also aids hunters in transporting hunted game by lightening the weight of the carcass.

Rancho Madrono takes pride in the success rates of our guided trophy axis deer hunts here at our Texas ranch. In the event a hunter wounds an animal, which means a hunter draws hair or blood, and we are unable to recover the animal, we must consider the animal to either to be expired or will expire. We must consider this to be a harvested animal and you will be responsible for full payment of the animal in question. Our hunting guides will do their best to recover your downed axis deer or other game animal, but it is up to the guide to decide when to call the search off and deem it a loss. If we call in tracking dogs to aid in the recovery or any additional resources, the hunter would be responsible to cover any extra charges whether successful or not. If you shoot and we do not find hair or blood, then the shot will be determined to be a miss by the guide, and you can continue to pursue your trophy axis or additional game animal.

A 50% nonrefundable deposit is required to secure all hunt dates. Once an invoice is submitted the minimum 50% deposit must be received in order to hold the requested hunt dates. If for any reason you cannot make your hunt date and Rancho Madroño is notified in writing within 30 days of the scheduled hunt date, you can reschedule up to one year from your previous scheduled dates.
