We acquired the 6000 acre ranch more than twelve years ago with the vision of developing it into a unique West Texas destination for birders, eco-tourists, and hunters (mule deer hunting, whitetail deer hunting, quail hunting and turkey hunting). The property had been a working ranch in the same family from 1900 to 2000, prior to our family acquiring it.
More than half the ranch is set aside as a riparian buffer zone where no livestock grazing is allowed. As a result there is abundant food and cover for our wildlife giving us large numbers of whitetail deer, mule deer, turkey and quail, both bobwhite and scaled. Additionally, with little grazing competition, our wildflowers, including basketflowers, twistlfowers, blue gilia, Texas vervain, prairie verbena, Engelmann’s daisies, and literally more than a hundred other flowering species, thrive.
We offer three day hunts with all meals, guide service, ranch transportation, and game cleaning/packing provided.
The property has two wet weather creeks, five distinct ecological zones and over 300 feet of topographic relief. The view from our main lodge is endless. Our canyon views from each cabin provide intimate looks at our abundant wildlife such as javelin, fox, bobcat, whitetail deer, mule deer and more than a hundred bird and plant species, including the delicate threatened twistflower, the ranch’s namesake.
