FM 2585 Hunting Ranch

Posted on: February 15th, 2019 by Beck Steven

This 160 +/- acres is located south of Vernon at the corner of the paved FM 2585 and the county maintained CR 97 S. It is just one mile from the historic 510,000 acre Waggoner Ranch, in an area known for large numbers of deer and trophy bucks.

The land is all in grass, with the north half being improved and the south half in native pasture. The south half has some thick mesquites and good wildlife habitat. It has a lot of game trails running through it, and this is the area from where the posted game camera pictures came too. Whitetails and feral hog will be both be found here, with the potential of shooting a really nice trophy (170"+ bucks have been harvested within a mile of this property.) A 20 +/- acre red-scald ravine runs through this area too, that would be good for predator calling from its ridge or target shooting.

The north half of the land is tall CRP grasses, with some re-emerging brush. A nice pond is located on the far north end that would be good for dove hunting. A second, smaller pond that was originally probably a retaining pond for the oil field is on the far east side in the scald ravine.

This property has active oil field production on it, and no mineral rights will convey with the sale. Six pump jacks are going, and there are three sets of tank batteries in place too. All of the oil production is on the south half of the ranch. The property also has a few junk piles on it that need to be buried (see pictures).

The ranch shares a fence with the neighbor on its east side. The other three sides are not fenced. It has access to electricity on the south end.

LIST PRICE: $1,050/acre | $168,000 total

Hidden Lake Ranch

Posted on: February 14th, 2019 by Brady Anders


Hidden Lake Ranch sits in south-central Gillespie County and is a short, 10-minute drive just south of Fredericksburg. With a 6-ac +/- lake, improved pastures with deep, rich soils, and beautiful, sculpted hills that offer panoramic views of Fredericksburg and the surrounding countryside, this property has all the ingredients for a legacy ranch or development property.
Historic Fredericksburg is 10-minutes from the front gate via Old San Antonio Rd., Meusebach Creek Rd., and Feller-Hahn Rd. Central Austin is a 1.5-hour drive via US-290 and San Antonio is just over a 1-hour drive via US-87. Crowned "The Best Small Town in Texas" by Southern Living in 2018, Fredericksburg is the gem of the Texas Hill Country. The town features more than 150 shops and galleries, many in fine old stone buildings along Main Street, well-preserved German landmarks, and a multitude of inns and bed-and-breakfasts within walking distance of restaurants, live music, and biergartens. The areas wineries are extremely popular, many of which rise from the idyllic pastures alongside US-290. Along with nearby New Braunfels, Fredericksburg keeps alive and celebrates the heritage of German immigrants who came to Central Texas in the 1800s.
At the center of this ranch is a 6-ac +/- lake that is impounded by an earthen dam 600' in length with a 10-12' wide clay core. The floor of the lake is sealed with 2-3' of gray clay that gives the water a clean, emerald hue. At capacity, the lake is 40' deep at the dam. The entirety of the lake can be accessed by gently sloped banks dotted with scattered live oaks. Near the shallower end of the lake, a large stone terrace was constructed providing a beautiful platform overlooking the water. The lake was constructed along a 6,575' primary creek that originates in the southern portion of the ranch that runs northwesterly and eventually off-property. There are multiple locations along this creek for further water development.
Water Wells
The ranch is serviced by five (5) existing water wells and one (1) hand-pump well. Three (3) wells sit near the improvements, two (2) wells sit near the lake, and the hand-pump well sits near the west boundary along the primary creek.
Hidden Lake Ranch provides a variety of habitat types that could be utilized in any number of ways. The northern section of the ranch consists of 276-ac +/- of improved pastures with deep, rich soils. These pastures could be utilized for grazing, hay production, grape production, or some other cultivated crop. In the center of the ranch, lies the 6-ac +/- lake with numerous potential building sites directly along the water.
The southern section of the property consisting of 300-ac +/-, rises into sculped hills covered with Live oak, Spanish oak, Cedar elm, and other native varieties. These higher elevation ridges and peninsulas overlook the lake and provide panoramic views of Fredericksburg and the surrounding area. The elevation ranges from a low of 1,690' in the middle of the property to 1,933' along the upper ridges in the south end of the ranch.
The ranch hosts a robust, native white-tailed deer herd that has been lightly hunted over the last three years. The property also has a healthy herd of Axis Deer that were caught within the property during the construction of the high-fence. Rio Grande turkey and other native wildlife are commonly seen on the ranch.
There is a 1,898 SqFt (3BR/1.75BA) home built in 1953 in good condition that sits near the entrance of the ranch. This home could be utilized as a primary residence or would make an ideal home for a ranch foreman. There is also a 1,120 SqFt historic wood-framed home constructed in 1906 that has been structurally refurbished, stripped of any old paint, and is ready for your personal finishing touches. The original rock homestead constructed of stone and hand-hewn timbers is still standing and provides a charming glimpse into the history of this special property.
Fencing, Gates, & Power
The entirety of the ranch's boundary is high-fenced (8') with corners, entrances, and low-water crossings constructed of 3" & 4" steel pipe. There is one (1) interior cross fence which sections off 140-ac +/- of the front pasture area. The front gate providing access from Feller-Hahn Rd. is electric with a combination keypad for security. Power is provided by Central Texas Electric Co-op (CTEC) and extends into the ranch in two locations. The first extension runs to the houses and the second extension runs into the middle of the property near the lake.
Hidden Lake Ranch has a well-constructed 3.90-mile primary road system that is built-up 18-48" with culverts placed accordingly. The road comes into the ranch on the north end, extends through the open pastures, and loops through the scenic hills and around the lake on the south end of the property.
