The list goes on and on!!! It's got Everything!!! YOU NEED TO COME LOOK AT THIS RANCH!!!!

The ranch is unique in its combination of heavily forested bottomland, thick brush, open country, fields, and an incomparable amount of Nueces River frontage. Bull mesquites, oaks, and hackberry trees provide cover and food for the animals. Wildlife includes whitetail deer, feral hogs, turkey, coyotes, dove and quail. The ranch has two separate game-fenced pastures consisting of a north pasture of 610 acres and a south pasture of 640 acres. There are 511 acres remaining outside the game fence which have approximately four miles of the Nueces River.

The vegetation on the ranch consists of a variety of high protein brush which is excellent for the production of quality animals with big horns. The types of brush include: mesquite, whitebrush, brasil brush, guajillo, guayacan, granjeno, vine ephedra, old mans beard (#1 deer food source), and persimmon. Guayacan is an evergreen that provides needed nutrition for the deer even during the winter months. There is worlds of guajillo and granjeno to go along with the dense guayacan! The HUGE Bull Mesquites are something to see!! Tree covered bottoms provide solid shade and great protection for deer and turkey.

The terrain is level and soils are river silt and sandy soils which will grow anything if irrigated - AND there IS irrigation to a number of food plots in both high fenced pastures. There is some prickly pear on the ranch and very, very few rocks. There are four irrigated fields used for growing haygrazer in the summer and oats, wheat, and rye grass in the winter and for growing green feed in the summer, if needed.

The ranch has two separate game-fenced pastures consisting of a north pasture of 610 acres and a south pasture of 640 acres. There are 511 acres remaining outside the game fence along with approximately four miles of the Nueces River.


This is one South Texas Ranch with Worlds of Water!!! There is nearly 4 miles of frontage on the Nueces River. The ranch has two Carrizo Aquifer irrigation wells that supply water to over fifteen lakes and ponds and numerous water troughs throughout the ranch. The north pasture has a four acre crystal clear blue lake in front of the main ranch house stocked with hybrid Florida Bass and blue gill. It is LOADED with fish - You can catch a fish with nearly every cast!! There are underground pipelines all over the ranch which feed several food plots that can be irrigated. A gun/reel system (included) can be used to water the north food plots and the south food plots (4 Irrigated Food Plots).

After the ranch was purchased, the current owner removed all of the deer in the two game fenced pastures leaving only the best bucks in the north pasture. Over 200 deer were released during a six year period to re-stock the ranch with high-end genetics introduced through an intensive breeding program.


The whitetail deer genetics come primarily from Robert Gegenheimer of Cotton Mesa Ranch; Hoof and Horns; the Refuge; the 5F Ranch; Robert Williams, and a few other ranches. Genetics of the herd come from noteworthy Super Bucks like: Cherokee, 727, Full House, Magnum, Bullwinkle, Daggertine, Twister 307, Prickly, Loaner, Reno, Texas Drop, Doublewide, and Big Bones (an Antler King son). Big Bones was the ranchs main breeder buck and produced massive horns and numerous droptines and double droptines in the herd. In 2010, out of twenty yearling bucks in the pen, seven had droptines. There are also a small percentage of northern genetics in the herd, which creates big bodies and heavy horns. Additionally, the south pasture also has a small herd of red deerThe ranch has the highest level of management permit issued by Texas Parks and Wildlife (Level 3 MLDP). The management philosophy on the ranch has been to shoot inferior deer at two years of age and only shoot mature deer at six years of age or greater. If a deer is exceptionally good or has droptine genetics, it is not be shot until that buck reaches seven years of age. Since most of the released deer have colored tags in their ears, it is easy to determine their age for harvest and management purposes. There are seven breeder pens in the north pasture with a full deer handling facility and separation pens. The south pasture has five deer breeding pens including one pen for releasing deer into the river pasture.

THIS RANCH CAN BE DIVIDED INTO TWO SEPARATE PROPERTIES. Each game fenced pasture can be deeded with several hundred acres of low fenced pasture with Nueces River frontage.... AWESOME OWNERSHIP POSSIBILITIES!!!


Property is located on the south side of F. M 1025, approximately 3.5 miles east of U. S. Highway 83.
