Quail and Wildlife Waterer

Circle has over 100 of these small-animal waterers.  They are made by Surber Tank Company, Odessa, Texas.  The internal valve is 3/4,” brass.  It holds about 3 gallons.  The tank must be maintained very full


Desert Big Horn Sheep

Circle Ranch has growing numbers of these native animals in combination with elk, pronghorn, mule deer and on occasion 1000 cattle which we use as a substitute for bison.

Circle Ranch is a 'Sky Island'

The Sierra Diablo range rises one-half mile above the Chihuahuan Desert floor in Hudspeth County Texas, 40 miles below the New Mexico line. It is well within the theoretical range of Guadalupe Mountain elk.

The policy to treat these as vermin is a huge mistake.
