One highlight of the front 1,422 acres is the gorgeous natural Anacahuita (Mexican olive) grove located on the northeast quadrant of the front pasture. This entire pasture is teeming with tons of native high protein forage such as guajillo, granjeno, kidney wood, and a good cactus crop..

The rear pasture also has plenty of mature brush areas with native forage to support a healthy whitetail population. This pasture has two large earthen ponds, as well as 9 concrete tanks. Located near camp is a cleared earthen tank designed for those early season dove hunts and/or warming up your shotgun skills for the season.
