Located on the beautiful banks of the San Saba River, Menard has a gorgeously temperate climate, which makes the area prime for farming and ranching. It’s also widely known for amazingly scenic views, incredible local history, and an abundance of wildlife—making it the perfect place to hunt. In addition to turkey, dove, and quail, Menard is famous for some of the best white-tailed deer hunting in Texas. With more than 400K acres open to hunters, the area supports the sport and its enthusiasts. That’s never more evident than at the kick-off of gun season with the Menard Hunter’s Blowout Ball.
