Ross Hammock Ranch 2013
Call 352 447 0296 NOW for information or to book your hunting and fishing adventure of a lifetime!
  Fifty plus years ago at age six, "HR" Ross  shot  his first bow, made by a Seminole Indian in South West Florida. He has been  addicted to bow hunting and the great outdoors ever since, carrying stick and string from Africa to Alaska and back. Also, growing up on the Florida Gulf Coast line, he built his first primitive raft at age eight, and then went on to obtain his US Coast Guard Merchant Mariner credentials, and has since cruised and fished the waters of Florida and the Bahamas for over 35 years.     After graduating from Rollins College in 1976, HR went to work in the computer industry, but always preferred the Woods and Water, over hunting for Bits and Bytes. In 1992, HR was Founder and C.E.O. of PowerCerv Technologies, taking the software products and services company public on NASDAQ in 1996. HR was awarded the Entrepreneur of the Year Award by USA Today in 1996, and while most other software gurus were buying fast planes and fast cars, HR promptly purchased a faster bow, and the ranch land that RHR  sits on today!    Throughout the 1980's and 1990's, HR was fortunate to have visited dozens of  outfitters around the globe, learning the good, the bad, and the ugly of what separated a great outfitter from a "nightmare" adventure. He saw plenty of  both! Those experiences, as a BUYER of outfitting services, defined the Value Proposition of being a SELLER of outfitting services at Ross Hammock Ranch today. In short, RHR endeavors to fill all of the gaps and details that can frustrate a sportsman while on a trip with an outfitter.    So, in the late 1990's, on the way home from an Alabama Rut hunt, the decision to build and open Ross Hammock Ranch was given birth. Since that time, a  world class facility has emerged, and several thousand sportsmen and sportswomen have visited Ross Hammock Ranch, usually along with their friends, family, and  "huntin' buddies" to hunt, fish, and enjoy the southern hospitality that it offers.

The Legacy

    HR has four children, who along with his beautiful wife Terra (whom some say is a better shot with a bow, but all say is a better angler!)  make the ranch a Ross Family operation. The legacy will continue.....   In closing, you never know who  is going to walk through the lodge door at RHR! It might be an American Vet  returning from tour of duty, it might be a country music artist or pro athlete, or a retired cop or evangelist, a terminally ill youngster, or a industry pro staffer from one of the many companies that frequent RHR like Realtree, Mathews, Remington, Muzzy, Bowtech, Bear, Scentlok, Swarovski, Rage, etc.... OR, it might be an exec from one of the supporting industry groups like SCI or NRA that also hunt RHR. But usually, its' just every day folks, that like you, all enjoy a common passion for the great outdoors. We hope YOU will be walking through our doors (and woods) soon too!
