Located just 115 miles southwest of San Antonio in the heart of the Texas brush country, the Dos Hermanos Ranch is approximately 1,400 acres of magnificent Texas ranchland famous for its trophy class whitetail deer. Accessible in all conditions with an entrance off Highway 65, the Dos Hermanos Ranch is 100 percent high fenced with 7.67 miles of its perimeter game-proof.
The ranch has been extensively game-managed since 1996, and has been designated by Texas Parks and Wildlife as a MLD level III ranch since 2004. The deer are protein fed year-round. The present buck to doe ratio is 1:1.2. In 1998, 20 does were purchased from the Yet Ranch along with two breeding bucks. In 2005 Triple Tdoes were obtained from the legendary Shiner Ranch to introduce new genetics into the herd. The deer herd is appropriately managed under the watchful eye of Ashton Hutchins, the area biologist for Texas Parks and Wildlife. Several trophies have been harvested over the years. Two 150 class Boone and Crockett bucks were harvested in 2007.
The Ranch headquarters is a newly constructed 4-bedroom Hill Country Classic Custom home. It is 100 percent rock with a metal roof and a spacious interior ideal for comfortable living and entertaining guests. There is also a large barn and a game-processing facility with a walk-in cooler. All are located conveniently within the headquarters compound.
There are six fenced pastures within the perimeter for cattle grazing. There is also a 300-acre field that is planted with buffle and klein grass; the native grasses are bristle and curly mesquite. The back portion of the ranch has an abundant amount of black brush, granjeno, guyacan and guajillo, all of which offer excellent protein for wildlife. There are three fenced food plots for wildlife as well as many smaller areas situated around each deer blind.
There is plenty of surface water throughout the ranch. There are three nice stock tanks for fishing and a Carrizo Water well at the depth of 1,000 feet in a six-inch bore. The new pump furnishes water to the two earthen reservoirs, three stock tanks and five troughs. There is an abandoned oil well that was plugged below the Carrizo Sand that can be perforated and used for additional water.
The Dos Hermanos is 100 percent high-fenced with all 7.67 miles of its perimeter game-proof.
The hunting accommodations are excellent. There are six double-wide deer blinds with protein and corn feeders at each. Feeder pens have been constructed around each protein and corn feeder. For bow hunters, there are five bow blinds situated throughout the ranch. Senderos have been cut for easy access for hunting vehicles.
