Llano County - The Deer Capital of Texas
Creek and Dutch Mountain Ranches are in the Central
Mineral Region of the Edwards Plateau. This area of Texas supports
not only the biggest variety of animals in Texas, but also harbors
the highest quantity of those species. Consequently, this area has
been aptly named the "Deer Capital of Texas."
These ranches have been game managed
for many years. White-tailed deer census counts are conducted to determine
harvest recommendations for the deer season. Quality
bucks are produced on consistent levels through controlled
harvest while management progress is monitored through tabulation
of data retrieved from each animal taken.
Ranch lies 3 miles NW of Llano. The 1900
acre ranch is characterized as "Mesquite Savanna"
country with rolling hills and a medium to thick cover of live oaks,
elm, mesquite, and hackberry. Several large stock ponds dot the ranch
and provide fishing for bass and catfish. Package hunts of one white-tailed
buck, one management buck, two does, one gobbler, unlimited hogs, and five days hunting are available for
$2,500.00 per gun for groups of 6 to 8 hunters. Excellent
lodging is included! See Pecan Creek Lodge
Dutch Mountain Ranch
is 1245 acres in SW Llano County adjacent
to Enchanted Rock State Park. This scenic area has a history of early
Indian habitation. The ranch has areas of thick cover with huge
granite outcroppings and two sandy creeks that join. Dutch Mountain
is season leased during the gun deer season. Excellent lodging is
included! See Dutch Mountain Lodge for
Both ranches have off-season hunts for hogs available as
well as Spring turkey, quail, dove, and fishing.
