Water: This is one of the most well- watered ranches on the market. This South Ranch has nearly 12 tanks and 12 water wells, there is no shortage of sub-surface or surface water, with water available every 175± acres. Highlighting the surface water are two large lakes with surface area of 8 – 10 acres. The luxury of having an abundance of water wells allows for 8 of the tanks/lakes to have water piped to them. The ranch lies over the Carrizo Aquifer so water is not an issue on the ranch. It is believed that the Carrizo is 250 – 300± ft. deep. Water is piped to tanks, lakes, water troughs, barns, lodges, pivots and main homes. Spurler Creek traverses the ranch, also providing good run off in wet times. Spurler Creek is lined with hackberry and elm trees, and several tanks/lakes are built along the fingers of this creek.
Vegetation: The ranch has incredible brush diversity throughout. Amongst the virgin native brush you will find areas that have been selectively motted and stripped for quail, by root plowing and roller chopping. These areas provide for great quail habitat. This ranch has all the necessary browse to grow large bucks and carry an abundance of game. Larger mesquite trees are scattered throughout the open areas and the creek bottom has large elm and hackberry trees that provide nice cover and roosting sites for turkeys. Brush species include guajillo, black brush, guayacon, persimmon, white brush and many more.
Wildlife: This ranch is a well known hunting ranch throughout the United States, with hunters coming in from around the country for this rare experience. The ranch has been featured on Major League Bowhunter and Buck Commander television, adding to its mystique. The property has all of the necessary ingredients with water every 175 acres, great brush and food plots. Not only is this area renown of producing large bucks, it thrives from the intensive management program over the years. Only native deer are hunted on the ranch. Over the years many 170+ whitetail deer have been harvested. The bird hunts are just as special due to the natural features on the ranch. The ranch harvested record amounts of dove over tanks and irrigated milo fields recently. There is an abundance of quail and, with all of the brush sculpting over the years, the ranch is very huntable for quail. Turkeys are roosting up and down the creeks and have plenty of open habitat to light down into. Bass fishing and duck hunting are also a great sport on the ranch. A 13 lb. bass was caught at the House Lake with many others weighting in over 8 lbs.
