Reviewed 12 October 2016

If you want to get where the wild life is wild and shoot some birds or clay pigeons you can't beat this destination. Go during the week they will upgrade you to Knotty Pine or similar room. You will feel like you are on Safari in Africa.

The people and the service are excellent the facility runs beautifully all appointments and equipment perfect.

Food is excellent. Check it out.

Room Tip: Ask for a room riverside. All rooms quiet.

We stayed in the Covey house for 3 days. It was a beautiful place to call home while we were there. The house included all the amenities you could ever ask for. Nothing like waking up and watching the sunrise from the porch while the Bob Whites sang and the deer grazed near by. The views of the ranch are stunning!!! I couldn't get enough of them. Hope to visit the ranch again!

Room Tip: Covey House is the best!

We had an all around wonderful time at Joshua Creek Ranch Resort. The only thing I would recommend is a little more attention to the food We had good service but mediocre food the first night all other nights were good. Other than that it was a wonderful stay. We would definitely return.

This is a very very nicely done ranch/guesthouse geared towards the outdoors and especially high end hunters. This is our second time back, and it is a 3.5 hour drive one way for us, if that gives you any indication of how worth the drive is. I did two rounds of sporting clays, had two breakfasts, one dinner. There was a corporate clays event there Saturday and Sunday , but after 2pm we had full access to the course. In the evening, my wife and I had the patio and dining room just about to ourselves, and at night we had the whole lodging compound to ourselves! Quick easy drive to boerne, and if you want to stay local, the town of "welfare" has a few quirky joints to dine at. The lodge is amazing, only downside-- bring your own scotch. Only wine and beer served, so if you want a good single malt after a day of gunning , BYO. But staff is accommodative on that point, they don't have a problem with BYO.

I wanted to fall in love with Joshua Creek Ranch. To be sure, the place is loaded with beautiful birds … chukar, quail, pheasants, and the full range of native birds and other wildlife. The location of the ranch is easy to get to, yet is far enough removed to feel out in the great wide-open … away from the city; the Texas countryside. We arrived late on a Tuesday, for three nights. Our first morning hunt yielded exceptional results… in a beautiful setting, with a skilled guide and well-trained (and adorable) dogs. The second hunt was fun too; but with smaller results (friendly guide, but with a trainee in tow; and lesser experienced dogs). Overall, two terrific hunts. Lodging and meals are also excellent at Joshua Creek…. In fact, some of the most luxurious bedding/room amenities this typically spoiled female hunter has experienced (what a difference a hair dryer and a regulation-size bar of soap can make!). We also tried our hand at fly-fishing for trout – as trumpeted in promotional materials – but with poor results. A recent rain may have hindered the bragging rights. Sporting Clays were fun too – and challenging – but be sure to have enough eye and other protective gear. The clays may just come at you with a vengeance. To our surprise, there is absolutely no “safety test” at Joshua Creek to qualify you to grab your gun and go a-shootin’. In fact, unlike other “elite” shooting ranches we’ve been to, at NO time did anyone require us to watch a safety video, or hear a similar speech. So, heed this advice: hunter beware.
With all the good things going for Joshua Creek, it hasn’t been hard to identify what’s altogether missing. It comes down to one fundamental element: Hospitality. From the moment we arrived, until checkout three days later, not a single individual at Joshua Creek made us feel genuinely welcome. In fact, not even remotely welcome. Let me be clear, no one was unkind (the dining room ladies, in particular, were very pleasant), but never did we feel like a valued or appreciated guest … we were simply a couple spending a good deal of money, and “hopefully” having a good experience. Call me crazy, but I’d rather have a so-so hunt (and how could it be anything else in nature’s backyard?) in a place where we feel like the most valued guest on the ranch, than to feel like simply another “party of two in the Persimmon room.” Even the “owners,” who dined just 10 feet from us at our last lunch, didn’t bother to give us the time of day, with only one other group on the entire ranch. Such a simple gesture it would have been to acknowledge us … and possibly made all the difference between a one-time and a returning guest. Truly disappointing.
Note to the Kercheville family: Take a trip to Riverview Plantation in Camilla, Georgia to experience Southern Hospitality at its finest. It isn’t just a little thing. It’s EVERYTHING.
