Wildlife: This ranch has a good amount of native wildlife on it due to the natural cover and distribution of water. Wildlife includes Whitetail deer, turkey, dove, hogs and varmints.
Vegetation: The family has used it as a livestock ranch and has used several management practices to enhance overall habitat. Hundreds of acres of cedar have been selectively cleared, leaving a mosaic of brush in the bottoms and cleared grassland in more productive or scenic areas. The ranch has also been on a prescribed burn program for several years. This has resulted in the return of many native prairie grasses, including Little Bluestem, Sideoats Grama, Indian Grass, and several other desirable species.
