No outside genetics have been introduced on the ranch, allowing the owners to take pride in managing a pure herd of Texas deer which are eligible for the Boone and Crockett and Texas Big Game Awards record books. 2016 survey results showed a coveted 1:1 ratio of does per buck, making for exciting hunts and a healthy balanced population. Typical mature whitetail bucks will score in the 130-140 range, and the ranch has produced multiple bucks scoring in the 150s and high 160s B&C.
