Blake Hortenstine Hortenstine Ranch Company LLC
Blake Hortenstine was raised in North Texas and graduated from Highland Park High School in Dallas. Hunting, fishing and assisting a wildlife manager on a Shackelford County ranch developed his childhood interest of wildlife fisheries management into a career. This interest led him to pursue a degree from Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. Blake graduated from Texas A&M in the spring of 1996 with a Bachelor of Science in Wildlife Management. Upon graduation, Blake was hired as a hunting guide for Dresser Industries’ Mota Bonita hunting operation in South Texas. He relocated south to Falfurrias, Texas in Brooks County to help manage the ranch’s wildlife and to guide business executives on quail, deer, hog and turkey hunts. After living on the King Ranch for a year, he moved to Dallas to pursue a career in commercial real estate. Upon relocation to Dallas in 1997, Blake became the game manager of a low fenced 14,000 acre hunting operation and wildlife management program in the eastern Rolling Plains west of Albany, Texas. As a result of his management efforts, the ranch’s wildlife improved considerably with whitetails scoring over 170” Boone & Crockett. Blake resigned as wildlife manager in 2012 after 15 years of intensive game management due to his busy real estate career. Early in 1998, he officially began managing another ranch property north of Breckenridge, Texas in Stephens County. This hunting operation began as a 3700+/- acre ranch and was grown to include over 11,000 acres of land. The acreage was subsequently reduced to 8200+/- acres which was intensively managed for wildlife. Blake resigned in 2013 after 15 years of service as wildlife manager. In June of 1998, he joined Henry S. Miller Commercial’s Farm & Ranch Division to focus on rural and recreational property sales. After nearly 5 years with Miller’s Ranch Division, Blake decided to start his own company, Hortenstine Ranch Company, LLC. The company was successfully launched in April of 2003. In December of 2011, Blake formed a partnership with Cash McWhorter. Blake and Cash continue to successfully grow and run the business. In 2004, Blake purchased a small property Southeast of Albany in Shackelford County near Ibex. The property has Hubbard Creek running through it and land management has been intensive since his ownership began. The wildlife has flourished and improving the property has been a favorite pastime. Blake currently resides in Dallas and has two boys, Rollins and Hayes. Hortenstine Ranch Company can accommodate Buyers and Sellers of ranch properties in the state of Texas and southern Oklahoma with primary focus being properties within a 3 hour radius of the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex.
