      According to Lehmann (), King Ranch had the “desire to do everything possible to increase wildlife as long as practices did not interfere with normal livestock operations.” Lehmann went on to say that King Ranch “blazed a trail for other ranches, many of whom now consider a wildlife manager as essential as a livestock foreman.”. In the early days of the ranch there was a terrible drought in South Texas and Northern Mexico. Captain King traveled to the little hamlet of Cruillas in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas. The townspeople were in such dire straits that they sold all of their cattle to him in an attempt to survive the drought.
