The ranch is located in Sutton and Edwards Counties, 34 miles from Sonora, Texas on the Edward Plateau. The terrain is a combination of rough and hilly ground, as well as flat lands. Though range grasses constitute the most common form of vegetation, the area differs from true grasslands by the existence of isolated stands of shin oak, juniper, and mesquite. The region was originally home to a wide variety of game animals and predators, most significantly deer, quail, dove, wild turkey, plover, coyotes, timber wolves, and bobcats. Periodically herds of antelope and buffalo wandered onto the Edwards Plateau, though they were not native tot he region.
