This property boasts a cross-fenced design to compliment wildlife and cattle management. The “wildlife knowledge-based” game fencing is for the segregation of quality genetic Whitetail, Axis, Oryx, Quail Motts, Dove hunter’s tanks, lodging and a superior onsite stocker pen/program.
The ranch topography varies significantly with different brush types, grass pastures, food plots and water piping from (3) wells with (4) cisterns supplying numerous troughs and (9) water tanks over (6) pastures. It is blessed with outstanding native south Texas brush and elevation changes that are highly desired in this part of south Texas!
The pasture wildlife segregation is specific to minimize annual feed cost and maximize natural high protein vegetation that improves horn and antler growth naturally. Gravity feeders for whitetail are set in trophy pastures designated for client quality experiences of a true non-guided hunt! About (20) double blinds with corn feeders are situated throughout pastures.
Game fences are new, senderos are widely maintained, all water wells maintained in past (2) years, cattle pens are small for minimal cattle raising to establish agriculture exempt tax program. Property has (20) years of whitetail program statistics, provides 30-50 bucks annually with bred doe release programs typically maintained by a single individual (very automated).
