ABOUT GKR

Since my friend Keith Warren (Deer and Wildlife Stories) did this original filming 'back in the day' our program has exploded! Enjoy this old video featuring The GKR on a nationally televised program, as it sets the stage in those early days as to where we are today as a breeding program!

The Gist Kinsman Ranch is located in southern Live Oak County, 2 hours south of San Antonio, Texas and just south of George West, Texas.

Our topography is made up of some of the most unique habitat in Texas and reflects a blending of the Gulf coast savannas and classic south Texas brush! Being about 1.5 hours west of the Texas gulf coast, we receive significantly more moisture than just 40 miles west of our location, and that makes for lush, thick and tall south Texas brush with 40' Bull Mesquite trees scattered throughout the ranch. Big Chocolate horned typical-framed bucks and several hand picked African Antelope species roam our pastures and are a testament to the focus and hard work needed to improve and sustain a big game ranch.

We are in our second decade of 'Breeding Deer' (within our scientific breeding facility) to continually introduce outstanding genetics into our pastures for our hunters! We also build these deer to enhance properties of other land owners throughout the state that desire to enhance and improve their herd for their own personal enjoyment as well as to enhance their hunting business!

We host outdoor lovers of all type on The GKR! Trophy and Management Buck hunters who are looking for that buck of a lifetime but do not want to 'ruff it' when the sun goes down! We also host and retreats for groups that are looking for an extremely isolated location and 5 star accommodations to enhance team unity or host team building speakers!

“This GKR lineup HAS IT ALL, no matter what you are looking for! Congrats to ‘Doc’ and all that is going on at The GKR! I for one, can’t wait to see the results of this lineup.”

Brad Sullivan, Sullivan Whitetail Ranch

“If I were a betting man, I would lay down BIG MONEY on the GKR having some of THE BEST Power Does in the industry. This is based on what I have seen on the GKR with my own two eyes and what I imagine will come out of these AMAZING 2014 pairings.”

Keith Warren, Keith Warren Outdoors

“In 2012 ‘Doc’ said to me, “Miss Donna, my goal is to produce a herd of 300″ typical framed deer on a consistent basis. It will take me a few years, but I believe we can do it.” Based on this INCREDIBLE DOE herd The GKR has been quietly building and these breeding combinations…I would say, well done GKR! I feel a breath of fresh air on its way. Some might even say a ‘Typical Revolution’!!”

Donna Boy, Owner/Editor of The Deer Breeders Gazette

“The GKR has quietly done the HARD WORK needed to create THE Most Exclusive and Exciting Doe Herd in Texas as well as The Entire Industry!!!”

David McQuaig

“My jaw dropped to the floor when I looked over The GKR's breeding's for 2014!!! I am excited for 'Doc' and the entire GKR Team and suspect Great things will come their way.”

Chris McSpadden, The Refuge

“With Integrity that is unsurpassed in our industry, The GKR has built one of the ‘Elite Doe Herds’ in Texas. We are extremely excited to be associated with the GKR.”
