The ranch balances over 1000 acres of Edwards Plateau range country, and crop fields, water ways and wells, with food plots and supplemental feeding. Natural conditions combined with improved habitat provide the cover, nutrition, and water needs for healthy wildlife. Management of the ranch wildlife includes habitat improvements - brush clearing, native vegetation seeding targeted for wildlife, mineral licks, water distribution, census counts, and selective hunting based on conditions and records.
