About Your Outfitter

The W4 is a hunting ranch located 1 hour west of San Antonio, Texas. The ranch is a hunter's paradise, offering exceptional year round big game, bird hunting and bass fishing. The W4 is home to hundreds of trophy South Texas Whitetail Deer and over 20 species of exotic wildlife. W4 Hunting & Fishing, LTD. has exclusive hunting rights to several neighboring ranches that can be hunted on day trips from the main lodge. This adds thousands of additional acres to hunt and provides the opportunity to hunt several additional species without extensive travel.

We realize you have many choices when selecting a Texas outfitter for your hunt. W4 Hunting & Fishing, LTD. offers a very personalized service with you or your small party being the only guests on the ranch. We host a limited number of hunters each year to ensure this personal attention and to maintain exceptional trophy quality. A quick look through the record book or the photos on this website will give you an idea of the results our management produces. All hunts are personally guided by Bill Figge. Bill has hunted extensively in over 35 countries around the world and has collected well over 250 species of big game. Bill's international hunting experience along with 20+ years of guiding hunters (8 years on Santa Rosa Island) assures you a safe and rewarding hunt that you will want to experience again and again. Comfortable private lodging, gourmet meals, challenging hunting for top quality trophies and our constant attention from the minute we meet you at the airport until your return is what we feel sets us apart.

Please look over the enclosed price lists for information on the various hunts we offer and feel free to contact us with any questions or to start planning your adventure. We look forward to hunting with you in South Texas.


Bill is one of the greatest international hunters of his generation. He knows what hunters like. He is working very hard to make the W4 a world class hunting destination for trophy whitetail and exotics. Based on our experience, he is near to accomplishing his goal. His animals are closely managed for outstanding trophy quality, his new hunter’s lodge is second to none, his wife, Romy, is a first class chef and provides stunning meals in a perfect setting. The W4 should be in the sights of anyone thinking about a Texas hunting adventure.

I have had very good guides before but Bill was unquestionably the absolute best. He was pleasant, patient and persistent. Bill picks you up at the airport, gets you comfortably to a brand new lodge, takes personal meal orders, drives you to the field in a modern 4 wheel drive truck, picks the best available trophy animals, puts you carefully in range and stays up late to prepare your trophies for the taxidermist. Is there anything else he could do?

The good thing about hunting with Bill is the fact that you will get your animal but with over three square miles to hunt you will get some exercise. Every meal was great. The lodge is a new three bedroom house. We stayed in the master which has to be over 500 square feet. The bathroom has a 2 person Jacuzzi tub if you’re tired from a long day. I can’t say enough about how great Bill, Romy and Claire are. They run a first class operation.

If you want to hunt big whitetail or exotics, I highly recommend Bill Figge. Romy’s meals are outstanding, the ranch is beautiful, the game is plentiful and Bill does an outstanding job of guiding and taking care of the trophies.

This place is Heaven. Bill is a 100% world class hunter and a 100% hunting buddy. Great meals, fantastic terrain and all kinds of big scary bucks with trophy racks. I wish I could live there

"Candra and I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful experience we had at your ranch.  You made us feel very welcome and comfortable.  Your ranch is beautiful and you have done an outstanding job insuring quality game and a quality experience for your clients.  Romy, the food was excellent.  I think we both gained weight.  Bill, you are a great guide and hunting partner.  Thanks for being a calming influence on Candra.  She is now pumped up about hunting again and is looking forward to another hunting adventure.  I will be bringing her back.  I am sure of that."
