Wildlife and Habitat
North Simms Creek is teeming with wildlife native white-tailed deer are abundant and free to roam. The bucks can grow impressive racks when they reach maturity. Healthy populations of Rio Grande turkeys roost along Simms Creek and frequent all areas of the ranch. Due to the native grass habitat, bobwhite quail are plentiful in good rain years. Little bluestem is the dominant grass that anchors an explosion of native diversity including hairy grama, tall grama, side oats grama (the state grass of Texas), buffalograss, both shortspike and hooded windmillgrass, sand dropseed, white tridens, and many other grasses that evolved in this area prior to modern human influence. Along the creek, huge stands of yellow indiangrass and switchgrass shade the banks. Largemouth bass and sunfish can be found in the many shaded pools and cut-banks of the creek.
The most convenient access is via a well-maintained county road that runs north from Lometa 9 miles to the entrance gate. The pavement turns to all-weather crushed limestone about one mile out from the gate. The ranch is an easy 90-minute drive from Austin. HEB, Wal Mart, and all the conveniences including a paved public airstrip are located 30 minutes away in Lampasas.
