The ranch is highly populated with whitetail, and the current MLDP program calls for harvesting of 48 bucks and 30 doe.

The variety of wildlife includes whitetail deer, axis, fallow, elk, aoudad, oryx, blackbuck, gemsbok, zebra, javelina and bobcat. The MLDP qualification allows for an extended hunting season for the whitetail, and many of the other species offer year round hunting. In addition, the ranch is home to a flock of over 100 turkeys, many coveys of quail and dove hunting is an added attraction.
