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.

Bee boxes arrived yesterday! Each year we allow an apiary to bring in a couple hundred bee boxes to the ranch from October-May. We don’t see any revenue from this venture....just free, all natural honey and the suite of benefits associated with honey bees from an ecosystem standpoint. If you are not aware of the importance of honey bees, you should be. These are some very important little critters!

Each year we conduct an aerial deer census via helicopter, in which we collect the following data:

-Number of does
-Number of fawns
-Number of young, middle, and mature bucks

These data allow us to determine fawn crop, buck to doe ratio, age structure of bucks, and a population estimate. We also work with biologists from @texasparkswildlife to conduct a Stem Count Index each year, to determine browsing pressure on specific woody plant species, which directly correlates to deer density. Using these two techniques, we have worked diligently over the past 5 years to lower our deer density. We manage this ecosystem as a whole and understand that each species has specific habitat requirements; therefore, too many of one species can negatively impact another species. We want to hear everyone else’s thoughts on deer density and if too high a deer density can impact the habitat of other wildlife species?

How many points does this buck have?!! Or is this an optical illusion of two bucks? Neat photo taken by one of our employees this morning through his spotting scope in the fog.

North winds, cooler nights, full straps, and time spent in the great outdoors with friends and family....all signify the return of fall in South Texas. We hope everyone else has had a chance to get outside and do a little dove hunting. We are less than a week away before deer season kicks off here in Texas, fall is finally here! @t_worlow

We are just over half way through our fall calving season. During the first 22 days, we have calved out 131 females. This little guy here was just a few hours old and weighed 68 lbs. Based on when he was born, we are almost certain he is an AI calf. Fall is a special time of the year here at the ranch. @beefmasterbreeders
