The Wolf’s Den, owned by Kim and Wayne Falcone, is a central Texas Blackland Prairie ranch consisting of high and low fenced tracts. The high fenced portion-approx. 500 acres – has been managed for trophy deer since the fence was put up in 2001. The deer are pure central Texas native whitetails that were on the property the day the fence was closed – no genetic manipulation was undertaken. Numbers of deer were drastically reduced over the first few years, food plots were established (we now have +/- 30 acres in cultivation) and free choice protein feeding, via 5 free standing protein feeders, was instituted. Habitat improvement has been an ongoing project and recently has focused on cedar (ash juniper) reduction and prickly pear control. In 2006, we had a “controlled” burn of about 50% of the ranch and plan to try and burn a portion of the habitat each year.

Commercial hunting began in 2006 and has grown since. We are focusing on harvesting 51/2 year and older trophy deer. We also have a few hunts per year for 31/2-41/2 year old 8 points so we can remove them from the breeding pool. We have made an effort to remove bucks with undesirable horn characteristics and we have left deer with traits such as split brow tines and forked G-2’s and removed deer without brow tines, short G-2’s and longer G-3’s as well as odd number of points, less than 9.

In the years prior to the high fence, the heaviest buck we recorded (we have management records back to the first season on the ranch) weighed 130 pounds (live weight) and was a 130 class B&C buck. In conjunction with TP&W’s MLD program (managed lands for deer), we have controlled our herd at approximately 190 animals max with a buck: doe ratio of 1.2:1. After season-once the bucks and does are harvested, our core numbers are about 150 animals before fawning occurs. Our first three bucks taken in 2007 weighed 185, 200 and a whopping 220 pounds-age and nutrition have made the difference. B&C scores were 148, 155 and 163. We can sustain approximately 6 trophy hunts per year and 4-6 mature 8 point hunts per year and keep our quality of mature bucks at a peak.

We have no plans to high fence our adjoining property as 500 acres is a full time job to keep the habitat up, work the food plots and manage the deer herd. We do our surveys the first week of September and TP&W will then set our harvest recommendations. We sponsor a TP&W youth hunt each year and that helps with doe management and cull buck control.

Started in 1926, the Farrell Ranch is not only one of the first Whitetail Deer Hunting Ranches in Texas but also it is considered to be one of the best. This Texas Deer and Exotic Game Hunting Ranch consists of about 2,250 high-fenced acres and is located in Central Texas about 6 miles north of Meridian. Located at the edge of the rugged Cross Timbers Region, the terrain consists of scenic mountains separated by deep canyons, creeks and ravines with cedar breaks, open glades and oak-motts scattered throughout, providing excellent habitat for hunting Texas Whitetail Deer, Turkey, Axis, Black Buck, Fallow and Red Stag.

The Texas Whitetail Deer management program begun over 80 years ago has evolved over the years and includes year round supplemental protein feeding and food plots to ensure that our Texas Trophy Whitetails and Exotics have the necessary nutrition to reach their full potential. Coupling this proven nutritional program with a strict management plan which restricts the harvest of our Texas Whitetail Deer and Exotics to only those animals which have reached maturity, enables us to offer truly exceptional Texas Trophy Deer to our hunters.

Hunts are guided and are conducted from various types of ground or tower blinds over corn/protein feeders or food plots or by safari/stalk style. Due to the topography of the Ranch, this is a true Texas hunting experience.

The Ranch supports a large deer herd of both Texas Whitetails and Exotics and hunters can expect to see a large variety of these animals during each hunt session. Due to the feeding program and strict management plan implemented by the Ranch, the majority of the TEXAS WHITETAIL BUCKS encountered each day will be mature TEXAS DEER scoring between 125-150+ B & C GROSS.

We pride ourselves in the quality of Texas Exotic Hunts available on the Ranch. The majority of Texas Exotics we take each year will consistently score well up into the ROE Gold Medal Classes for each species with numerous top 10 entries in the ROE Record Book. We have huge Gold Medal Red Stags and Fallow bucks that are simply amazing (these will keep you off that plane to Argentina), Axis bucks with main beams longer than 33?, and Black Bucks with 19? ++ horns. With the variety and quality of Exotic Game animals available here on the Farrell Ranch, it?s easy to see why most of our Hunters choose to return to hunt with us again and again.

Hunters stay, two to a room, in a comfortable, fully furnished, two-bedroom, two-bath Ranch House with satellite TV and central heat and air. Meals consist of all of those Texas Deer Hunting Ranch favorites made famous over the years and no one ever goes to bed hungry.

No more than four hunters are allowed on the Ranch at any one time so you will never feel crowded or rushed. We will not over-book or over-hunt the Ranch and restrict the number of Trophy Texas Deer Hunts we conduct each season. Once those hunts are booked- that?s it for the season. If we feel like we cannot satisfy the trophy requirements of a hunter, we will tell them up front- not AFTER they arrive for their Texas Deer Hunt. The total satisfaction and safety of our Hunters is paramount. That is why the majority of our business is from repeat customers- most of which have been hunting with us for years.

welcome to the Putty Ranch located in central tx.

Located in Hamilton County at the gateway of the Texas Hill Country, the Putty Ranch has been a fixture in the region for well over 50 years. In the late 1950s, seven small farms and homesteads were consolidated into the current 2,700 acre Putty Ranch. Early settlers were attracted to the rolling hills and endless vistas crossed by winding creeks and rivers. Majestic oak groves, hundreds of years old, dot the rugged countryside. This area has been visited by hunters for over 10,000 years as evidenced by the stone tools and middens scattered across the countryside.

Today, the ranch is a great place to visit, explore, or hunt with your children. Enjoy spectacular starry nights around the campfire. Spring brings a sea of wildflowers to the hills. Search for ancient fossils or dinosaur tracks along the creeks and river. Several ruins of old homesteads are still standing and offer a glimpse into early Texas life on the ranch.

Prehistoric hunters came to the area for the mammoth, camels, and ancient horses. Today, the wildlife has changed, but the thrill of the hunt has not!
