My passion for quail hunting led me to deer ranching. My lifetime friend from grade school in Ben Wheeler, TX, Randall Preston bought a farm in Pearsall, TX during the late 1970’s. We grew up quail hunting a lot, and I started going to Pearsall to hunt with him. Randall farmed, ran cattle, and had access to some great quail country. I fell in love with the Pearsall area, and when about 1200 acres of the old Stacy Farm Ranch, next to Randall’s farm, become available to purchase, I jumped on it.
Deer were the last thing on my mind. The place had no high fence, buildings, or ponds, but it did have three irrigation pivots and two Carrizo deep wells. I was leasing the pivots to Gary Boyd for farming and we became great friends. Gary and John Viesca had gotten into the deer breeding business, and I got interested in what kind of deer they were growing. Burnell Gates built us an AI facility, we started building pens, and we purchased bred does from The Refuge and Derby Sands Ranch (Gary Boyd). We were off and running in the deer business.
