Each hunter is assigned a station and the birds are driven to fly over the stations. This incredible experience is not often had in the United States. Of course, all the birds are not shot in the drive, so the remaining days after the drive are spent hunting the pheasant with pointers. According to the family, it was common to shoot a thousand birds in a weekend! The main house sits atop a hill with beautiful westward views from wraparound porches.

It is a beautiful example of a 19th century frame farmhouse that German settlers would have built in this area of the Hill Country. The remnants of old stone fences are close by, casting thoughts back to a different time of ranching in Texas. Several ancillary buildings are included in the River Ranch compound. A ranch employee and his family occupy the final house, a three-bedroom, two-bath frame structure built in the late 1970s. There are ancillary buildings near this house, as well.
