Here is your shot at an excellent high-fenced, turn-key South Texas hunting ranch.
Located in the heart of big deer country in Western Zavala County lies Chicon Creek Ranch, 764 acres of excellent quality, high-fenced native habitat. The ranch is 12 miles Northwest of Crystal City, at the end of paved F.M. 1668.
Chicon Creek is a very large, wide drainage that encompasses approximately two-thirds of this ranch, producing absolutely awesome bottom land with deep dark soils, bull Mesquites, excellent browse and abundant surface water. The Chicon Creek drainage on this ranch is honestly some of the best South Texas habitat we have seen and is a deer managers dream. There are 5 lakes of various sizes on the ranch and creek areas backed up with rain water throughout the ranch. These soils hold water very well and surface water was still abundant throughout the ranch during the recent drought.
Wildlife includes all native game indigenous to this area as well as Elk and Axis deer that were introduced many years ago. There were also some breeder deer released onto the ranch many years ago. There are no captive deer or captive exotics on the ranch at this time. The game has been very well managed and quality, mature animals are abundant. The ranch currently has a level 3 Managed Land Deer Permit issued by Texas Parks and Wildlife. The sale of the ranch will include eleven permanent, all-weather blinds with corn feeders which have been appropriately built into the landscape throughout the ranch, as well as six large gravity flow protein feeders.
The ranch has an extensive road system throughout, complete with permanent cement low-water crossings at multiple low areas that would otherwise not be accessible during wet weather. The owners have just spent a considerable sum of money this year re-working the roads, and layering in road base material in many areas.
The end of road privacy of the Chicon Creek Ranch makes it quiet and secluded, and the 2900 runway (airnav 3TA9) makes it perfect for those inclined to land directly on the ranch.
The ranch is highly improved with multiple houses, barns, equipment sheds. Five separate houses comfortably sleep 25 people !! Other improvements include 3 - 15,000 pound feed bins with auger, cattle working pens, 1 irrigation well, and two domestic water wells. You would be hard pressed to find a ranch with better surface and sub-surface water in the brush country of South Texas.
