About the owners,

Dan and Kay Jupe along with daughter Courtney and sons Cameron and Avery, purchased the original 300 acres in 2009 and have been adding to it as ajoining properties become available.  Purchasing large tracts of land in Irion County, Texas is next to impossible.  Mertzon, the only town in the county, is virtually land locked by large family owned ranches so when the Jupe's discovered a 300 acre tract of land they immediately seized the opportunity.  Kay calls the now 1200 acre  ranch their "Promised Land".  Dan and Kay sold their hunting properties in South Texas where the area is saturated with hunting operations and moved to West Texas where the opportunities are greater and hunting pressure is significantly less.  "This area has some great native whitetail deer genetics. Kay and I had a vision for releasing high quality, 200 plus B&C whitetail bucks and does into the native herds and we are seeing the payoff. We are closely managing and monitoring our deer herd so that we can offer the best quality hunts anywhere in the State. I challenge you to experience what we have to offer at Rockin DK Ranch."
