Better Genes Are The Name Of the Game

The quality of any wingshooting experience can only be as good as the quality of the birds. That's why we've spent decades perfecting the genetic traits of our game birds to ensure superior flying instinct, agility and plumage.

Over the years, we've narrowed our breeding pool from more than 30 available sources to - in our estimation - the very best suppliers in the nation. We pay special attention to ensure that our birds are raised in large flight pens, receive the very best nutrition and have little or no human contact. Because of this carefully-honed selection process, we can proudly stake claim to providing our guests with the closest experience to an all-wild hunt - anywhere in North America - bar none.



"The closest experience to an all-wild hunt anywhere in North America ..."

Whether it's pheasant, partridge or quail (including a normally healthy population of all-wild Texas bobwhites), rest assured you're in for one of the most exciting and challenging hunts of your life… and bagging better birds in the bargain.

 

Habitat

Preservation ... It's In Our Nature

For the expert and novice wingshooter alike, the hunting habitat at S.M. Brown Game Bird Ranch is nothing short of spectacular; a plethora of natural, native grasses, forbs and flowers punctuated by colorful plum thickets, live oaks and pecan trees. We meticulously maintain the property on a daily basis - both in and off-season - to provide the most authentic Texas hunting experience possible.

For more than 30 years, our unwavering goal has been to maximize the range area for optimal upland bird habitat, cover and propagation. We use no pesticides or herbicides in our management practices, using only traditional, environmentally-sound techniques. The result? The most scenic and natural wingshooting habitat to be found anywhere in Texas.
