REDUCED PRICE!!!!! NEW FEATURE!!! Brand New Water Well!! The owners have recently drilled a domestic water well! This 281 acre NUECES RIVER RANCH is JUST THE RIGHT SIZE!! Offered at $3,050/Acre! This is a choice, low-fenced property with some beautiful, heavily treed river bottom land. There are literally thousands of huge live oak, pecan, and elm trees growing in the bottom lands which make up about 40% of the property! There is about 2 miles of deep, green water on the Nueces River. That makes this the perfect game habitat!! This is a deep soiled, irregularly-shaped little hunting/cow ranch located in PRIME Hunting Country! Approximately 40% of this ranch is wild, woolly, heavily wooded, Jungle-Type, bottom land. The remaining 60% of this property was once used as an irrigated farm and consists of mesquite and huisache trees. There are two heavily wooded, thick, brushy draws that feed into the Nueces River. Probably, at one time, these two draws were the Nueces River bed. Both draws are about 15-20 feet deep and are lined with HUGE trees that are 40 to 50 feet tall and there is dense, thick underbrush. There are numerous game trails that bisect these bottoms as deer, hogs, and turkey travel up and down these great habitat areas. There is lots of guajilla, granjeno, guayacan, and blackbrush growing in these bottoms. NEW WATER WELL!!!

There is about 150 - 170 acres of old farm land has a very dense coverage of mesquite and huisache trees growing on it. The mesquite trees are anywhere from 8 10 12 feet high and produce copious amounts of mesquite beans. Most of the ranch have an excellent stand of various types of grasses, with most of the ranch having knee deep grass creating a blanket of feed and cover for deer and game and livestock. Kleberg bluestem and buffel grass are the predominant varieties of grass found on the ranch. There are a number of other grass varieties present on the ranch including: Arizona cottontop, green sprangle-top, Plains bristle grass, K-R Bluestem, side-oats grama, and Klein grass. Fall rains ha

A big part of this fine little ranch is comprised of the Montell Clay soil association and the Pryor Sandy Clay Loam soil association. Both of these are prime farm land type soils that are very productive with strong nutrients!

Elevations range from 570 to 585 feet above sea level, there are no roughs on this ranch. The property currently has an ag exemption. There is 3-Phase electricity available to this property, which also makes single phase available. There is an old set of livestock pens located in the north central part of this property. There are several food plots on this property and an individual could easily make several more food plots in other locations -- you certainly have the quality soils to work with!!!

There are two mobile homes on the eastern end of this property. One mobile home is a nice, modern 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit suitable for the wife. The second mobile home is more of a Hunters Cabin and is a little more rustic. Both mobile homes have covered wooden decks built on to them. They are located close to each other and can sleep a total of 12 to 15 people. Additionally, there is an equipment barn, a storeroom/barn, and a set of welded pipe pens located just south of the two mobile homes. There is a lift pump station located at the Nueces River. There are several hunting blinds and deer feeders that will stay with the property. There is good traffic at the feeders showing that there is good hunting available on this property! There are Literally Worlds of Turkey on this property and there are lots of feral hogs to hunt!!

Besides the 2+ miles of Nueces River, there is one dirt tank built in the draw near the two mobile homes and there is a smaller dirt tank located near the front entrance. And there is an extensive network of underground pipeline that was used to irrigate the east end of the property. They have not been used for quite some time, but are believed to still be in usable condition.

This is your chance to own a fine, fine South Texas Ranch that is located close to Crystal City and Carrizo Springs. It dont get no better than this! Come take a look! You won't be disappointed!!! This ranch is located in an area where naturally big, trophy-sized white-tail bucks have been famous for many years, and where a number of the winning deer have won trophies over the years. It is basically known as the Big Deer Country, famous for its big deer, big horns, big feet, and quality meat on deer. This area is famous for its quality grasses such as side oats grama, green sprangletop, curly mesquite, running buffalo, pink pappus, love, crowfoot, witch red grama, spear, burr, and others, and most of these are classed as climax grasses, known to be the best and most productive ones. They are all strong in nutrients and vitamins. Most of these grasses will bloom and make seed, and this is one way that the good Lord set it up for reproduction and renewal. This is real strong country and the grasses and brushes are what makes it so good!!! This One's A Hunting Dandy!!!
