The Canton Ranch is a beautiful example of a Edwards Plateau and Trans Pecos regions transition property with high bluffs providing exceptional vistas for miles, live oak lined draws, wet weather creeks, mesquite flats and varied terrain throughout. This diversification provides for rich habitat for a variety of game animals but most notably, premier free-range whitetail deer. The Canton Ranch has great access off of HWY 163 and excellent caliche roads throughout. This property stands above others in the immediate area and at $695 per acre is an exceptional value.
The Canton Ranch is located 28 miles south of Ozona, Texas in Crockett County just north of the Sutton County line. Access is excellent, with approximately 1.2 miles of frontage along Hwy 163 and 1.5 miles of access off a well maintained easement road.
Wildlife and Hunting:
Hunting is excellent, which is typical for the area in generally well known and sought after for its game. Native, large big bodied whitetail deer produce some beautiful racks. Other game include turkey, scaled and bobwhite quail, mourning dove, javelina. Additionally, bobcat, mountain lion, coyote, gray and red fox, badger, ringtail and raccoons thrive on the Canton Ranch.
Layout, Topography & Terrain:
The layout of the ranch is good, with long straight boundary lines. The topography and terrain is varied with large rock outcroppings creating high bluffs and broad valleys below. Along the wet weather creek draws, where the soil is deeper, there are beautiful live oak trees springing from the rugged terrain.
The climate and soils support a climax vegetation of mid and short grasses and an abundant variety of forbs and shrubs including live oak, shin oak, hackberry, elbowbush, skunkbush, sumac, juniper among other hardwoods. Grasses included sideoats and black grama, came bluestem, cottontop, plains bristlegrass and other mid grasses.
There are no modern structural improvements on the ranch. A campsite with water, electricity and shipping containers for storage make for a comfortable location to park your RVs and trailers.
Fencing is generally poor. Roads are excellent to good.
There is a meter located at just below the campsite providing electricity to the submersible water pump and camp.
A water well with a submersible pump is located just below the campsite. There is a cement water trough for wildlife, which is also fed from the well. Additionally, an old Pila is located at the site. Most water wells in Crockett County produce water from the Edwards-Georgetown or the Trinity aquifer generally at depths of 300-600 feet and are good in quality.
There are several wet weather creeks traversing the property including Brushy Draw.
Minerals and Wind:
Surface sale only, seller owns no minerals. Seller will convey all owned wind rights.
The ranch, and all those in the immediate area, was once part of the expansive Hudspeth ranch, which ranched Rambouillets sheep and goats. Claude Hudspeth advertised that he had the best sheep and goats available stating, If you have any better than mine I will buy them.
