The ranch terrain is rolling with a number of lengthy draws. Abundant live oak and shin oak, combined with areas of thick juniper and expansive senderos create a haven for our deer. While raising quality whitetail is our primary goal, there are free roaming herds of exotics on the ranch as well. All of our hunts are fair chase; our animals are healthy and truly live the wild life.
Parks & Wildlife Magazine has featured the West Kerr Ranch in two articles recognizing our efforts and success in producing excellent range conditions and habitat for wildlife. (June, 1998 and July, 1999 issues) The ranch was honored in 1999 by Texas Parks & Wildlife Department as the Statewide recipient of The Lone Star Land Steward Award. This program recognizes private landowners who have excelled in wildlife habitat management.
The West Kerr Ranch is owned, managed and operated by the Kana family. Our guides are experienced hunters. We are dedicated to providing you with an enjoyable and safe hunt. Memories of a lifetime are made here. We offer many different package hunts to fit the needs of our guests. Our whitetail trophy buck and management buck hunts are conducted from blinds and feeders. When we’re hunting exotics we’ll spot and stalk, safari style and use blinds and feeders when needed.
The West Kerr Ranch can accommodate huntin’ buddies, families and corporate groups. All of our cabins are air conditioned, have kitchens, private bathroom facilities, and the mobile home & hunter’s cabin have satellite television. Call it “rustic urban” or just call it “home”, for a few days or a week!
If sunrises and sunsets are pleasures you never seem to have the time to enjoy, just take a few minutes, smell the Texas wildflowers and take in the view! Wildlife often feed in the pastures and water holes below as our lodge sits at an elevation of more than 2,200 feet above sea level.
Now, our city dwelling neighbors have told us that stargazing is a thing of the past. Well, not on this particular piece of “God’s Country”! We can provide what you and your family may be missing out on while living life in the urban frenzy. All the stars of the galaxies light up a crystal clear, pitch black night at the West Kerr Ranch. Bring your own telescope and binoculars or borrow one of ours. You almost feel like you can “reach out and touch them” from here!
