Intensive game management began on Lambshead in 1944. Thoughout this timeframe, an impressive whitetail deer herd, pure-strain Rio Grande turkey, hogs, quail and duck populations testify to the success of our ongoing wildlife program. According to biologist surveys, deer with Boone & Crockett scores over 170 are not uncommon on the Ranch; several which have been harvested scoring over 200. Lambshead has achieved statewide recognition for our commitment to game management and received the Region V (57 Counties) wildlife conservation award in 2001.
Hogs and coyotes are also plentiful throughout the ranch. Hogs that inhabit the river bottoms are descendants of those furnished by the government to the Indians on the Comanche Reservation in the 1870's. In addition to deer, Lambshead Ranch is now offering guided turkey, hog, quail, dove, and varmint hunting on a limited basis. This is a rare opportunity to experience an historic Texas ranch and enjoy some of the best hunting the state has to offer.
Come hunt the historic Lambshead Ranch located 15 miles north of Albany, Texas on U.S. Highway 283 in northern Shackelford County. This family run ranch consists of 40,000 acres of prime wildlife habitat. Hunters who visit Lambshead will not only have the opportunity to harvest record class deer but also to step back in time and get a glimpse of what life must have been like in the late 1800's.
