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.

Fall is arguably the busiest time of the year for us in regards to cattle workings. We collect yearling weights, vaccinate, and brand our replacement heifers and yearling bulls, as well as collect carcass data via carcass ultrasound on our yearling bulls. We also perform a “pre-breeding” working on all females that we plan to breed in Dec/Jan. Lastly, we usually synchronize somewhere between 120-130 females for AI (approximately 35% of our herd). We have had questions in the past regarding the number system associated with our brand...we will use a replacement heifer as an example. The first digit on the top row of heifers left hip represents the year it was born, so in this case, this heifer was born in 2019 (thus the “9”). The remaining digits represent the ear tag number of the heifers dam, so in this case, this heifers dam has an ear tag number of “993”. The numbering system for our bulls is similar, but not exactly the same. This allows us to track how many daughters a certain cow has in the herd. Once a heifer has her first calf, she then gets a new, stand alone ear tag number.

We fly our annual deer survey in less than two weeks....wonder what we will come across this year? This photo was taken two years ago out of the helicopter. Yes, this is a bobcat that had killed a buck fawn....nature does not discriminate. What’s the craziest thing you have seen out of the helicopter while flying a game survey?

Happy Thanksgiving to all. We hope you had the opportunity to spend it with those who matter the most to you. Here at the ranch, we have so many blessings to be thankful for, and wouldn’t change this way of life for anything.

Sure, most hunters in the state would prefer to hunt deer, turkeys, dove, quail and duck over a collared pecarry (aka javelina). However, this animal has its place here in our state and is arguably one of the most important game animals we have when it comes to youth hunting. They are not as challenging to hunt as other game species and can be easily harvested with a small caliber rifle....the perfect recipe for a young, first time hunter. Take a kid hunting this year, as they are the future of our hunting heritage, conservation, and all things outdoors.

Family, hunting, and the outdoors, what more can one ask for. This is a “classic” South Texas buck. Congrats @buddyraney.
