Hi, my name is Jimmy Mitchell. I own Red Oak Ranch here in Blanket, Texas. When I purchased the Red Oak Ranch 17 years ago I had a good genetic base and harvested some trophy bucks in the upper 170 class. My Ranch Manager, Gene Curry, and I wanted to increase our genetics even more since we felt we had a good base to start with. We added some stronger genetics in both our bucks and does. With good feed management and by keeping low deer density, a short five years later you can expect to see bucks in the 150-200 class while you’re hunting here. We also have some mature management bucks which don’t quite measure up to what we call a trophy buck.
