These are true Texas hunts on real working cattle ranches. We are lucky to have hard working ranch-hands, some of whom have lived on the property for over 30 years. They know the land far better than the owners. They are experienced hunters and outdoorsmen who know how to shoot, track, and identify game. They’ll put you into areas that they know to be high traffic zones for the kind of game you’re looking for. They do whatever they can to give you the best chance at taking a shot at the kind of quality game you are looking for. Speaking of game, we have an abundance of high quality deer, turkey and hogs.

The record breaking drought of 2010-2011 continues. Much of Texas is bone dry, with scarcely any moisture to be found in the top layers of soil after a year with less than a couple of inches of measurable rain. Grass is so dry it crunches underfoot in many places. Still, The Berry Ranch is doing much better than most. Being close to the Frio and Leona River bottoms, we still have grazing for cattle and wildlife. Supplemental feed has been a great expense but is not an option when mother nature throws you curves like this. You would think the deer would be suffering.

2010 will go down as a great year at The Berry Ranch. We had been watching this truely magnificent 7 1/2 year old heavy droptine buck for the previous 4 years. With 22 scorable points, 5 droptines, and over 41 inches of mass, he's got everything! After a year of good rain, excellent range conditions, and the RHR protein feed from Dilley Feed & Grain, this buck scored 217 5/8. Biggest buck ever harvested at The Berry Ranch.
