The History

Some of Texas’ most colorful pioneer history took place within 20 miles of the Wildcatter. In fact, tales or frontier forts, Indian massacres, outlaws and cattle drives that took place during the mid-to-late 1800’s before the oil boom are told in a multitude of books and at least four movies, including: “Lonesome Dove,”
“Black Fox,” and two John Wayne movies - “The Searchers,” which is based on the Elm Creek Raid, and “The Sons of Kate Elder,” which tells the story of the Marlow Brothers incident.


The Land

Situated on 1,500 acres of beautiful, diverse Texas landscape in
the North Texas Hill Country, the ranch is abundant with soft
grazing bottomlands, rugged hill terrain covered with rocks,
