Water infrastructure includes 10,000 gallons of water storage, ten water troughs with 8 miles of poly pipe. Seven, one ton protein feeders are strategically located throughout the ranch and have been on a year-round feeding program for last 5 years.

Description: I am very fortunate to get to list a quality hunting ranch that I have personally been involved with outfitting hunts on in the past. This high fenced ranch has had many years of quality deer management and it definitely shows by looking at the deer herd. For many years this property has had an extensive amount of supplemental feed and quality food plots, along with strict harvest regulations, which has lead to produce trophy whitetail bucks. Strategically planned brush work has provided great senderos and shooting lanes at many of the deer stands. This is a turn-key hunting ranch set up with deer blinds, corn feeders, protein feeders, and lodging.
Improvements: 2 mobile homes, skinning facilities, walk in cooler, great cattle pens.
Fencing: Perimeter is completely high fenced and this ranch has good interior fencing as well. Good barbed wire fences surround numerous food plots ranging from 5 to 140 acres in size.
Wildlife: White-tailed Deer, Rio Grande Turkey, Quail, and dove.
Vegetation and topography: From scenic elevation changes that run along a creek on the entire west side of the ranch, to mesquite flats and gently rolling terrain, this ranch has it all.
Water: There are 9 stock tanks and 2 water wells that supply numerous water troughs scattered across this ranch. This ranch has very good potential to provide large bodies of water along 2 different drainages/creeks if desired.
Minerals: Owner will convey all minerals owned.
