Martha and Rusty Kimbrell started our ranch business in 1996 with our first ranch purchase.  It’s been our constant goal to build our properties into premier hunting ranches.  Through intense management including supplemental feed, improved native browse, and selective harvesting our ranches achieve maximum carrying capacity of trophy animals.

We currently have two hunting ranches totaling over 2500 acres with pastures containing either native or enhanced genetic whitetail deer.  Our Mountain Home ranch has a broad list of exotics, and our Zavala County ranch has native south Texas monster whitetails.  Our hunting adventures have been featured on Ted Nugent’s Spirit of the Wild television series, and we strive to provide each guest with a comparable experience.

We have first rate lodging and facilities that can handle everything from individuals to corporate groups.  Our trophy hunts include lodging and meals, as well as meat and trophy handling.

At Big Iron Ranch Adventures LLC we deliver premier hunting experiences for the entire family.  Whether you’re a trophy whitetail enthusiast, a parent looking for your child’s first hunting experience, or couple who share a love for the outdoors, we can tailor an adventure just for you.


Hunting at Big Iron Ranch Adventures is not limited to blind or stand hunting, although of course those are available.  If you prefer spot and stalk we have pastures designed specifically for that.  If you prefer safari hunting we have pastures designed for that as well.  We have both high rack Polaris Rangers and High rack trucks for those hunts.  We have competent and capable guides to ensure you get an opportunity for the animal you want.

For the more adventuresome we can set up both pig and predator hunts from helicopters.
