the starry night ranch family


Robert Emmons grew up hunting and fishing with his father in East Texas. Over the years he has managed several hunting lease operations and served as Wildlife Manager for a rural community in Central Texas. After retiring from a long career in the high tech industry in global operations management and customer service, he is now focused on building an exclusive, customer-focused outfitting business.  Robert is a lifetime member of Safari Club International and the Texas Wildlife Association.  He has hunted across eight states and two Canadian provinces for deer, elk, antelope, caribou, boar and a variety of game birds.


Pamela Emmons began hunting after spending many years just enjoying the outdoors with her husband Robert.  She is now an accomplished hunter harvesting numerous deer in Texas, a 343 Bull Elk in Colorado and Caribou in Northern Quebec.  Her passion is hunting wild hogs and has harvest too many to count.  Pam also spent over two decades in the high tech industry before leaving to raise a family and run her own home based business.


Terry Everett grew up hunting and enjoying the outdoors with his father, grandparents and uncles.  He spent much of his youth on family land in Central Texas and is a native of Austin Texas.  Terry has a passion for the outdoors and hunting whitetail deer and Rio Grande turkey.  He has spent many years in the high tech industry in operations management.  Terry serves as our primary hunting guide and is in charge of all safety protocol at the ranch.


Leif Henderson serves as the ranch biologist and as a guide.  We have implemented an intensive wildlife management program under his direction.  Leif has had a long and successful career in the wildlife industry.  After graduating from Texas A&M he went to work for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department as a state biologist.  He has spent the last two decades running a private wildlife consulting business helping ranchers in Texas to improve their deer herds and develop superior whitetail bucks.


An Austin native, Bryce spent much of his youth hunting and fishing the beautiful Texas Hill Country with family & friends. Along the way, he developed a passion for processing his own game meat, including the Texas tradition of making sausage.  Today he's an Operations Manager for a leading custom home builder in the the Austin area. When he is not chasing down contractors, or whitetail deer, he is busy chasing his two young daughters around his house. He's had a passion for hunting exotics and big whitetails in Texas for many years. Now he is discovering the excitement of guiding hunters, new and old, in making memories in the outdoors. 

Bodie Nash

Growing up in Houston, the Texas hill country, and the valley, Bodie Nash developed a love for the outdoors at a young age. He learned wing shooting from his father and grandfather as soon as he could handle a shot gun and expanded his interests in whitetail deer, turkey, invasive species – mainly feral hogs, and coastal inland fishing. He is a supporter of organizations that seek to educate, provide outdoor experiences for youth, and native land conservation. Bodie has retired from a long career in corporate America and now time around the campfire, smoker or grill connecting with people is almost as important as time in the field.

Billy Brent

Billy Brent grew up in Highlands, Texas. His love for the great outdoors started at an early age as he helped his grandparents out on their small farm. It only grew when he was old enough to finally go hunting. Some of his best memories from childhood involve spot and stalking, field dressing, and ending the day around a campfire with his uncles and cousins. He currently lives in Baytown, Texas with his wife and three daughters. Two of them have gotten the hunting bug as well, but the other is still holding out. However, she does love to sit in a stand and watch the animals with him, so he’ll take that as a win. Aside from his job as an Operations Supervisor, he loves guiding hunters and being able to take part in their own hunting adventures.
