Location/Access: With convenient access off State Hwy 22 the ranch is located 13 miles east of Hamilton, Texas in Hamilton County. The Diamond S Ranch is only 1 hr. 45 min. southwest of the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex. Being in the northernmost part of the Hill Country, this terrain is perfect for producing trophy whitetail deer.

Land: The western portion of the ranch consists of rolling topography with a prominent elevated feature towards the center of the ranch which provides dramatic views of the surrounding countryside. Sloping off to the northeast, there are two large stocked ponds and a wooded creek bottom providing perfect edge habitat that transitions into a sizeable cultivated food plot. To the southeast, the ranch gently rolls toward another lush food plot and down to the North Fork of Neils Creek and three smaller stock tanks. It is evident when touring the ranch that years of selective clearing and controlled burning have created an unmatched habitat in which wildlife thrives.

Improvements: The ranch has perimeter high fencing as well as 9 individually gated breeding pens that can be left open or closed. The larger food plot is also fenced to control access and allow the vegetation to reach maturity. A well developed interior road system provides ease of access to a large majority of the ranch. The well-appointed 2500 sq/ft brick home serves as the ranch headquarters and is complemented by a charming, remodeled farmhouse that functions as the ranch guest quarters and is perfect for hosting family and guests. There is also a quaint one-room bunkhouse that is perfect for additional guests. There is an implement shed and barn providing ample storage for the necessities of ranch life as well as a walk-in cooler for the harvested game. A custom designed storage building, complete with an observation deck, affords guests the opportunity to soak up an intense Texas sunrise with a hot cup of coffee or perhaps catch a brilliant evening sunset with your favorite libation.

Wildlife: The Diamond S Ranch has a proud history of producing some of the best Whitetails in Texas. Since 1990 the deer on the ranch have been intensively managed and some of the top bloodlines in the State have been introduced to yield bucks of exceptional trophy quality. The Diamond S has been highly recognized in the hunting and whitetail industries and many deer featured on various outdoor publications have called the Diamond S Ranch their home. The ranch has also had a history of some fantastic Rio Grande Turkey hunting and Large Mouth Bass Fishing.
