This ranch is a dream for the sportsman, being fairly isolated and remote, but with generally easy access, electricity, and water. This ranch has a perfect cover for whitetails, turkey, and especially bobwhite quail.
The ranch topography is generally rolling and undulating, and soils are sandy in nature. Portions of the property have a very dense canopy of sand shinnery. Cover is generally provided by large mots of shin oak with scattered mesquite thickets and oak trees. Thickets of hackberry trees and chinaberry trees are very common with cedar being sparsely scattered throughout the property. While not considered dense the brush cover over most of the ranch is plentiful and considered to be ideal for native wildlife. Principal grasses include buffalo, varieties of grama and bluestems. An abundance of forbs is available for wildlife feed and protection. Very little cactus is present.
The Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River flows nearby. The breaks along the river provide good winter cover for wildlife while the uplands (such as the Firehunt Ranch) provide excellent year-round food sources.
