Folsom Point Ranch
About the Ranch
Folsom Point Ranch is a 10,000 acre high fenced game ranch with no interior pastures. Our animals are free to roam where ever they choose, making every hunt an incredible challenge. Our hunts often require a high level of skill and fitness. We go to great lengths to ensure that every animal is well cared for and the conservation of our species is our first and foremost priority!
Our Hunters will enjoy the comfort of great food prepared in our top notch kitchen or on the Green Egg, great time around the outdoor fire-pit, direct TV and flat screens in every room, and most importantly a great night’s sleep in our 6 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom Lodge. We pride ourselves in having comfortable beds for our guests to sleep. If you’re not comfortable we will bend over backwards to try and accommodate.
Like many other Texas Ranches, Folsom Point Ranch uses the private enterprise of breeding and hunting individual animals, to promote and effectuate the conservation of the species in its entirety.
Because these species do not receive the benefit of Government funding their best hope to remain in existence is through the private hunting and breeding industry.
Folsom Point Ranch prides itself on its contributions to the conservation of many native and exotic animal species. Without the many Texas ranches and like-minded stewards these species would very likely be nothing more than a distant memory of a species that once was.
Folsom Point Ranch located in Big Spring Texas is named after the Folsom Point Arrowhead which is among the many Native American Indian artifacts that have been found on the ranch. In 1913 H.H. Wilkinson combined his cattle herd with J. Tom Mercer and they adopted the ‘Cross F’ brand for the new herd. In 1914 H.H. purchased all of Mercer’s interest. By 1936 Folsom Point Ranch was running upwards of 1500 head of cattle. Today Folsom Point Ranch is still running Angus Cattle in both Texas and Colorado, but has also intensified its focus on the preservation of other exotic and native species through its management practices.
