All Of Stone Creek Ranch's Whitetails Feature Genetics From The Top Breeder Bucks In The Country
Whitetail Deer are the most abundant large game species in North America. Texas Whitetail hunts have become not only a sport but big business. The whitetail population is largest in Texas, where an estimated three to four million of the deer reside.
Their characteristic tails are held erect when fleeing to display the white underside; the rest of their body is reddish-brown in summer and grayish-brown in winter. Fawns less than six months of age have bright white spots scattered on their coats. Adult bucks can attain lengths of over six feet and weight up to three hundred pounds; adult does tend to be smaller. Like mule deer, white-tail bucks grow a new set of antlers every year, shedding the old ones after the rut (breeding season) is over. Whitetail antlers are comprised of one main beam per antler; in mature bucks, each beam may have three or more tines sprouting from the beam.
Whitetail live primarily in wooded and brushy areas, such as the Texas Hill Country. This type of habitat offers good cover, as well as access to a wide variety of food sources, such as: woody plants, shrubs, fruit, and grass.
The Lodge at Stone Creek features 5-star amenities.
