The average top ten-point buck during the 2001 season was 133.8 B & C. The largest buck killed during the 2001 season scored 156 B & C. We have a large young buck population that will prove to make the seasons to come very productive. The terrain and quality wildlife makes this lease one of the premier hunting leases in Sutton County. The Shurley Ranch supports a very large white tail deer and wild turkey population because of range and wildlife habitat. The leases are for groups of 10 to 13 hunters. Each group is provided with it's own full RV Park.  For more information please call or email.
