“As a kid growing up in Houston, I spent every minute I could playing in the woods nearby and dreaming of owning a ranch,” Davidson, a former Texas Wildlife Association (TWA) president and San Antonio-based partner in Republic Ranches, said. “My high school classmates were pretty sure I’d be living by myself on a mountain somewhere shooting something.”
Once Davidson and his friends got old enough to drive they spent every free moment at a friend’s ranch located along the Brazos River in the vicinity of Brookshire. They hunted dove and ducks, fished a lot and built a log cabin by hand. Davidson also spent summers working on that prairie ranch as well as a family friend’s ranch in Montague County in north Texas.
