The ranch’s native habitat includes a mixture of huge oak tress in the canyon bottoms with plentiful acorns and many water tanks that attract large flocks of turkey in the spring and fall. Smaller oak, hackberry, mesquite and elm create a diverse woody cover. Peaceful and beautiful valleys open into plentiful grass cover, testimony to good management practices. The abundance of buffelgrass, bluestems, and sideoats grama in the fields and pastures give upland hunters a advantage in pursuing quail. . Wildlife includes whitetail deer, quail (both blue and bobwhite) Rio Grande turkey and dove. With access to the Rio Grande, stocked spring fed lakes and the adjacent waters of Lake Amistad you will never run out of spots to fish.
Several wells, miles of spring fed creeks with pools of water shaded by oaks.
