Who We Are, Where We’ve Been,
& Why That’s Important
The 6S Ranch is a family-owned and operated hunting ranch in Gatesville, Texas. When we say family, that extends to members of the Benton & Stevens family. But it doesn’t stop there. We consider everyone that is a member of the 6S Ranch team family, and most importantly, everyone that visits we hold in the same regard. The 6S Ranch is located approximately 2 miles southwest of Gatesville, Texas, with 1.75 miles of its eastern border along the beautiful Leon River. The terrain at the 6S Ranch is diverse, on the northeastern edge of the Texas Hill Country, with deep canyons, creek bottoms, river bottom, rolling hills, and open range pastureland.
The 6S Ranch’s 700+ acres were put under a high fence in 2007 to better manage the native populations of whitetail deer as well as breathtaking exotic game from Africa and India. The ranch is also home to wild hogs, and Rio Grande turkeys. In addition, we’ve established herds of exotic animals, including fallow deer, axis deer, blackbuck antelope, red deer, and elk. Hunting was open in 2010 for the first time since the ranch’s establishment. Buster Patterson has remained the ranch manager since then and has become the absolute favorite of all guests who have had a stay with us. We are confident, as fantastic as our animals make as a bragging piece on the wall, the contributions to a character that we all share after an experience at the ranch is what makes us all better moving forward.
The 6S Ranch family is incredibly humbled and proud to share in memories with all those that visit the place we call home – and they call the hunting experience of a lifetime. Get in touch and request to book your stay today.
