Barnes Keith Ranch is located 75 miles northwest of Austin along the Colorado river in San Saba country. Wildlife biologist have been involved in the whitetail deer herd management since 1983. This includes over 10,000 acres of prime hunting territory with 11 miles of Colorado river frontage.


The combination of water, feeding areas and cover make an ideal habitat for hunting Rio Grand Turkeys, trophy whitetail deer, huge wild feral hogs, exotic and native game. In addition, we supplement the native diet with nutrients and minerals, resulting in heavy antlers and body weight.

I have done a lot of hunting while looking for a place that I could have a long term relationship with and I have found it with your ranch. You have got a great bunch of people there. I look forward to bringing my family, friends and clients there for many years to come.

Thanks again Bob.
