Blue Mountain Peak Ranch
has some of the most beautiful and real hunting in the Texas Hill Country. Hunters find themselves in land that has rolling
hills, steep ravines w/springs and running water, fields and forests like this part of the country was 150 years
ago. There are only four blinds on the 830 acre Ranch ,with feeders that go off @ dawn & dusk from Sept.
1st through the end of hunting season, and competent hunters are allowed to hunt away from the blinds by setting
up their own stands. Hunters need to plan on being @ the Ranch for 3 daylight hours before hunting for orientation.
Mountain Peak Ranch has hosted NRCS for Land Management Classes and training on Prescription Burns, hosted Youth Range
Workshops, Hunting by Orphans, many school groups, and is hosting studies being done to measure the results of
our improvements by Texas Tech and Texas A&M.
