The Double Dime South is an investment grade, premium ranch offering with numerous high-end improvements and quality South Texas brush for trophy whitetail. The ranch is in one of the most highly sought after hunting regions in South Texas, surrounded by historic large ranches. Sixteen years ago, former professional baseball player Chipper Jones, of the Atlanta Braves, purchased the ranch and it has been carefully managed and maintained at the highest level. Located at the end of a paved county road, the seclusion and privacy of the ranch is as good as it gets, with paved internal roads all the way to the lodge. With superior improvements, water, habitat, and wildlife, the Double Dime South offers rare and abundant highlights to discerning buyers, so call us today to set up your very own private showing.

Location: The Double Dime is located about 20 minutes Northwest of Crystal City, TX in Zavala and Maverick counties, with access off of paved county road FM 2691. The county road stops at the entrance of the ranch offering excellent seclusion and privacy, only 130 miles southwest from San Antonio. There is a 5,000 foot paved runway (TA34) at the ranch headquarters, making it extremely convenient to fly directly to the ranch and taxi up to south lodge.

Land: Terrain is level to gently rolling with topography typical for the region. The native habitat for whitetail and other game on the ranch is excellent with around 4+/- miles of creek running throughout the property and a full menu of South Texas brush throughout the ranch. Spurler creek serves as an excellent water source for all the wildlife, with numerous different drainages and tributaries feeding into it. Water impoundment features along the creeks are in place to hold bigger surface lakes, with multiple lakes holding over 10 acres+/- of surface coverage on the ranch. Soils are productive with a good mix of sandy and clay loams. Internal roads have been maintained throughout the ranch making the majority easy to navigate and the perimeter of the ranch has existing high fencing. Some minerals may be negotiable.

Wildlife: This region is known for its large native whitetail and this ranch is no exception, with excellent management practices resulting in a well-balanced herd with exceptional whitetail produced every year. The ranch is iconic from numerous television appearances on Major League Bowhunter and Buck Commander television shows showcasing the quality of wildlife on the ranch. The habitat on the ranch supports a vast variety of wildlife with whitetail, turkey, quail, and dove in abundant numbers. Year round feeding programs, tillable production, and harvest management is evident. In past years, strip clearing was done to increase the quail habitat and the managers report excellent quail hunting. The many bodies of water on the ranch also serve and hold a great number of waterfowl in the winter months. *Wildlife slideshow photos credit to Boxie Kallina.

Improvements: The ranch has established premium quality improvements capable of world-class entertainment, commercial hunting operations, and full time residency.
