Property Description


This 100% native deer and quail ranch, located in eastern Webb County, is low fenced, and is approximately 23 miles west of Freer. From Hwy 59, the ranch is accessed via Welhousen Rd, heading south for seven miles, the gate is on the east side of Welhousen.


Terrain on this ranch is relatively flat red sandy with some motte country look and feel from brush work done 10 years ago. The southern boundary contains some nice rolling hills. The hilltops provide great views and good sites to build a permanent ranch headquarters . The ranch is dominated by superb native South Texas brush species, lots of Granjeno, Guajillo, Guayacan, and Blackbrush, among others, along with native grasses and a few areas of improved grasses.


The ranch deer herd is 100% native free range. No hunting in 2014 & 2015 and 2016 was management deer hunting only. Historically the ranch has had very light hunting pressure of any kind, with family only. The ranch has fabulous dove hunting with world class evening shoots at many of the surface tanks. Quail have had little to no hunting pressure and this pasture could be hunted with dogs. Some burning and light brush management could turn this into a nice 70/30 quail/ deer ranch.


The ranch has a variety of soils, Aguilares Sandy Loam covers some 44%, Moglia clay loam covers some 27%, and Tela Sandy Loam, Maverick-Catarina Complex, and Montell Clay round out the other types. This northern 1280 acres approximately is comprised of red sandy Aguilares soils, with a semi-open look due to previous brush enhancements. This is quail hunting country, but also holds some big deer. Numerous drainages cross the ranch providing heavy cover.


The ranch has good surface water with 3 tanks and a good creek drainage to add several more. All are known to hold water all year round and most were dug very deep by the original owner, a well known cattleman in the area.


Seller does not own the minerals, surface only sale.
