Welcome to San Pedro Ranch

The San Pedro Ranch is located in Dimmit and Maverick Counties, 30 miles southwest of Carrizo Springs, Texas. Twenty-six different soil types, spanning over 23,000 acres, support a very diverse plant and animal community. The ranch is low fenced, and offers some of the best fair chase hunting opportunities for native white-tailed deer. Over the years, state of the art wildlife management practices have produced some of the highest quality trophy white-tailed deer in Texas, as measured by the Boone & Crockett Club.

Visit the San Pedro Ranch, and you will see approximately 325 head of hardy, gentle, registered Beefmaster cattle. We have genetically selected our cattle to thrive in an arid, oftentimes, harsh environment. Our San Pedro Beefmaster bulls reflect such distinguished lineage as LBar 5502, Ranger’s Pride, Casey, Tres Hijos, Frenzel, and Nolan Ryan bloodlines. Our heifers descend from cows who have consistently weaned a calf every year, even in difficult drought conditions.

At the San Pedro, we try to make the most of nature’s bounty by practicing holistic management; weighing each decision against the over-arching goal of improved native habitat and a healthier ecosystem. The San Pedro Ranch converts sun, soil, water, plant, and livestock resources into a valuable food source. We like to say that we help nature do what she does best. Please enjoy exploring our website for additional inforamtion.

Sunrise this morning needed no filter, as the sun’s rays highlighted clouds to our east. Forecast hints at chances of rain over the next couple days…as the cowboys used to say, “vamos a ver”.

DROUGHT…a term Texans are all to familiar with as of late. Above average temperatures coupled with lack of rainfall has crippled much of the state this year. Farmers and ranchers have been hit the hardest as their livelihoods are tied directly with the land. The weather related severities and extremes we are now experiencing make it difficult to manage, but we must learn to adapt and do more with less rain if we want to be sustainable. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the farmers and ranchers who are struggling to manage through this drought. On the bright side, we are one day closer to the next rainfall event.

HUNTING...there is more to it than most realize. As we all know, hunting is and will always be a controversial topic through the public eye as most associate hunting with death. However, hunters will tell you that there is far more to hunting than the harvest. Its the nights spent by the campfire reminiscing on past hunts, its the feeling of being "free" in wild places, its the hours spent with friends and family in the field, its building the instinctual connection we all have to the land, its watching the sunrise or sunset from your favorite hunting blind, its reconnecting with old hunting buddies, its strengthening a generational love for the outdoors, and its the opportunity to experience and spend time in nature. Hunting in itself, is a great teacher of life lessons. So next time you see a harvest photo, try to look past the harvest and understand that what you are seeing in the picture is a small glimpse of what hunting is really about. "The greatest hunter is one that walks alot, and shoots a little" - Spanish Proverb

Vast, undeveloped, untouched, wild…all adjectives one would think of in reference to a place such as Alaska or Australia. However, thanks to the efforts of conservation minded, private landowners and organizations such as @txaglandtrust, Texas also has vast, wild, open spaces. We are thankful for all those who came before us who shared a similar mindset and help paved the way to conserve and keep Texas wild. Sadly, Texas is losing open spaces faster than any other state; therefore, it will be up to private landowners to keep Texas wild, for future generations to come.

Shade…a precious commodity this time of year. These cows will start calving in 50 days. Ever wonder what it’s like to be in the latter stages of the third trimester in 110 degree heat? Cows within our fall herd have been doing it for 30 years. Animals are much tougher than we will ever be and for those who depend on animals to make a living, it’s incredible just how hard those animals will work for you. We are lucky to have a cow herd that works harder for us, than we will ever be able to work for them.

Mooooving into the work week. We walked our spring pairs down the farm market road a few weeks ago to another pasture. Gentle cattle provide flexibility, and flexibility provides adaptability.

Trailcam Tuesday. Hard to believe we are less than 2 months away from the dove opener here in Texas. Tag a buddy who would still come up empty handed with this flock of white-winged dove. Do you prefer to hunt mourning or white-winged dove…comment below.
