Born and raised in the brush country of South Texas, Robert Rogers started hunting at 10 years old. By the time he was 25, he had authored two publications on hunting in Texas. These were "The Texas Hunter's Directory" and "Big Rack". In 1976 he started Texas Hunting Services, a guide service catering to non-resident hunters. In 1981, he published "Great Whitetails of North America". In 1983 he co-authored "The Legend of Muy Grande", with L.R. Garza. In 1984, he compiled "The Professional's Guide to Whitetail". In 1985, he released Volume II of "Great Whitetails of North America". In 2015, his latest book was published, "Where the Big Bucks Live". This book contains the stories of Robert's 50 years of hunting South Texas. In 2016, Robert was inducted into The Muy Grande Hall of Fame.
The first Casa Monte Lodge was built in 1990, near George West, Texas. In 1995, the lodge was relocated to the famous Golden Triangle, located just outside of Carrizo Springs, Texas.
