A few weeks ago, my wife and I visited a private ranch in Bandera County owned by a very close and dear friend of mine. I've known the owner for most of my life, and in fact, he gave me my very first deer rifle at age 4. I'm 31 now and haven't been to the ranch in over 10 years, so it was great to introduce this very special place to my wife. The ranch is 4,000 acres of high fenced property on the Medina River. Of all the ranches I've been on, it is still absolutely one of the most gorgeous places I've ever been.....and will always hold a special place in my heart.

The ranch is not open to the public, and is leased for hunting by a corporate group. I've got more photos than is possible to post here, but I figured I would share a few of the highlights. I hope you guys enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them. (keep in mind these are low-resolution files, the full-resolution versions are much better!)

And before anyone asks.....yes, that is a Kangaroo. haha

That is a Barasingha Deer in velvet. They are another species of deer from India and are roughly 2-3 times the size of an Axis....400-500 lbs.

Here are a few more pics I got of that same bull.
