Premier Hunting Lodge & Ranch In Texas

With a saddened heart, we dedicated this post in loving memory of


 August 15, 1949 – June 16, 2016


Our dear friend, cuz and brother was killed in a tragic accident on Thursday June 16, 2016. Funeral services were Monday June 20, 2016 at Rule Cemetery.  


May his family be cherished with all your open arms and hearts, as they will need you in this time of need.

We have many memories of such a great man. A man who loved the outdoors. He loved meeting people who in turn always became his friends. He left lasting impressions of his passion for the outdoors with them on their return home. He was always eager to please and always greeted you with his quirky smile. He shared stories, his  family highlights and always remembered the client came first.

As you sit in your tree blind or your fishing boats reflect back as how this incredible man touched your lives over the years past. He will be sitting right there beside you, encouraging a steady aim for a true hunt of your lifetime and a steady hand of the nudge on that pole while fishing for that nice catfish.alyssa andvance

Their will never be another guide or human being referred to as my  “Right Hand Man” for Roy. Vance was his brother/friend and confidant- you all saw this in them as you hunted with us.

May you rest in peace our friend, you will be remembered always!!!!
