Topography, Rangeland & Habitat
A majority of the woods on the property are large stands of post oak trees, with scattered water oaks and live oaks. Several of the pastures on the east side have scattered pine trees. The pastures have been improved throughout the ranch. They are seasonally fertilized, sprayed with herbicides for weeds, and treated for gophers. The front pasture by the house is Bermuda for hay cutting and the back pastures have been planted with sprigs of Coastal.
The white-tailed deer population is abundant across the ranch. With several arms of Sand Creek running through the ranch, the habitat creates excellent conditions for abundant deer on the ranch. The ponds and lakes scattered across the ranch are also home to wood ducks year-round and the wintering population of ducks in the area is strong due to the close proximity to wetlands, roasting lakes, and river bottoms. Additionally, the owners have done a great job at controlling the wild pig population, the ranch has traps strategically set out around the ranch to keep the hog from rutting up the improved pastures.
