South Texas Whitetail Deer Hunting

Welcome to Burts Ranch website! Family owned and operated, we believe you will find this to be one of the most exciting ranches in South Texas. Located in historical Kinney, County, Brackettville, Texas on Hwy 90 we are just minutes from Del Rio, Texas.

After the purchase of the ranch we began a very intense management program. We wanted to take the NATIVE DEER of the ranch and provide them with proper nutrition, water, and habitat. In managing deer one of the key factors is letting a deer reach maturity.

A deer does not reach its full potential until maturity. With that in mind the first five or so years we fed, watched and waited. After this period of time, we began selective harvesting of deer that did not meet the trophy class we were looking for.

We take great pride in our management program. Over the years it has been suggested by others that we buy deer or pen and breed. Although that is effective in bringing about trophy deer, we feel that we can achieve the quality trophies we are looking for with the NATIVE DEER of the ranch. We have chosen to take the excellent NATURAL GENETICS that are in NATIVE DEER and begin managing them. So when you’re out hunting or visiting the ranch, you will not see any deer that have been tagged or penned. You will enjoy the natural habitat of deer roaming and growing. We strive in continuing to better our management program to improve the quality of the herds.
