(( BUILD READY WITH ELEVATED VIEW )) It has a perfect level building site with an incredible elevated view of the Hill Country in three directions. The only blocked view is by mature oaks on the West side that will shield a dwelling from the evening sun and heat. The RISK has already been taken and a 60 gpm sweet water well has been established at the site. Once the well proved viable, electricity was also brought to the location! This site is ready for a power loop and construction to begin.
(( HUNT READY )) For eight years this property has been under the Wildlife Management Agricultural Tax Appraisal. The hunting has been strictly controlled and harvest numbers regulated.
This pasture stretches for over one mile East to West. It tapers in width from about 700 yards on the East end to 450 yards on the west end. The North and East fences receive No Hunting Pressure, The South and West receive very little. I have records dating from 2006 that show observations and harvest data up to present day. We have three hunters (including myself) that have always limited ourselves to one buck per year and doe numbers based upon harvest recommendations. There is no shortage of game..... whitetail deer, dove, turkey, hogs and some quail who's numbers we have been trying to enhance.
We have 13 well placed food plots (approximately 16 acres total) which we plant and fertilize to draw and supplement deer and birds. In the Fall we plant about eight acres of Winter Wheat, Oats and Madrid Clover which grow all winter then top out in the spring. In the Spring we plant the remaining acres in WGF Sorghum, Peredovik Sunflowers, Egyptian Wheat and Native Sunflowers. The wildlife takes full advantage.
We also maintain 55 cavity nest boxes on the pasture primarily for bluebirds.
There are five established stands (three metal tower stands, one elevated box and one ground box) and four 55 gallon drum feeders all in place and active. These will all go with the property unless the buyer prefers they be removed.
(( GRAZE READY )) The pastures have been rested for three years and are ready to graze. On occasion I have introduced cattle for short duration to reduce the thatch and promote forb growth. There are three cattle tanks in the large pasture, one of which was recently constructed in 2011 (and stocked with Large-mouth Bass and Copper-nose Bluegill). The two larger tanks have never dried up under my watch. The third small tank holds water on occasion but tends to seep into my larger mid-pasture tank.
Switching from the Wildlife Tax Valuation to livestock will keep the tax structure the same. The tax office will simply need to be informed of the change.
