Welcome to Third Canyon!!!


Third Canyon encompasses the Childress River Ranch in Terrell County and Third Canyon in Crockett County divided by the Pecos River.  Third Canyon is home to the #1 typical whitetail for region 1, scoring 146 0/8, harvested in the 2005-06 season and the #3 non-typical whitetail for region 1, scoring 154 1/8, harvested in the 2007-08 season.  We have 2 fully furnished lodges to provide you with all of the comforts of home while here on your hunt.  This property is owner operated and has been involved in an extensive wildlife management program since 1998.  Along with our hunting endeavors we also have a great line-up of performance horses being raised and trained on the ranch for multiple events.  Our barrel horses are trained by 3-time NFR qualifier Melissa Hubier Childress.  Crossbred cattle for roping are also raised on the ranch.  Please navigate through the site for more information on your interest and should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.  Thanks for checking out our site!
