Our family began arriving in Callahan County, Texas in 1877. In that year, J.B. Cutbirth drove his herd of cattle onto that soil. This was the beginning of his permanent land possessions in Texas. He had left home as a boy of nine years old to begin ranch work. By eleven, he was driving herds into Kansas, and by the age of sixteen, he had purchased his first beef cattle.
The Cutbirth-Bonner family is today in its sixth generation of ranching. The years have not diluted the family's love of the land. Presently, the great, great grandchildren of Mr. Cutbirth are developing programs of wildlife management and conservation.
We welcome the serious hunter to come enjoy a beautiful part of Texas that offers the excitment of game fence Whitetail hunts and the challenge of open range Whitetail hunts. We also offer guided Rio Grande Turkey hunts and Mourning Dove hunts.
The Bear Branch Experience offers the excitement of game fence hunting and the challenge of open range hunting. We have approximately 4,200 acres of hunting land and nine miles of game fence.
Bear Branch guides will spend as much time as possible in the field prescouting the ranch for all size bucks to ensure the most successful and memorable hunt we can provide.
