The Lewco Ranch is one of the largest parcels of contiguous land left in Lavaca County, with frontage on hwy 111 south of Halletsville. The ranch is a diverse mix of primarily live oaks and grasslands with many huge century oaks all over the ranch. It would make a fantastic high fenced ranch, plus is large enough to manage the white-tailed deer herd on the current low fence. The ranch also comes with a portion of the mineral estate which is so hard to find on large ranches these days.
Location: The ranch is located in southern Lavaca County 22 miles north of Hwy 59 out of Edna on Hwy 111. The property has almost one mile of frontage on the paved State Highway.
Habitat: The ranch is about half oak forest (primarily live oaks with some post oaks) and more open native grasses. The topography is rolling to flat and has mixed areas of heavy brush under some of the forest canopy.
Soils are primarily sandy or sandy loam with good clay underneath for the ability to create great lakes and ponds. There is about 75 feet of topography on the ranch and there is no floodplain on the property.
Besides the excellent hunting, this ranch is also a very good cattle ranch with the native and improved grasses throughout the ranch, great water distribution, and interior fenced pastures.
Wildlife: White-tailed Deer, turkey, quail, dove, hogs and varmints are abundant on the ranch. There are plenty of huge oaks to provide food and cover for both the deer and turkey. Vast areas of native grasslands with mixed brush create good habitat and cover for bobwhite quail. Plenty of doves are in this area and with multiple small ponds available to hunt over the hunting can be excellent.
While the ranch is very unimproved, with the groundwater and proper soils, it would be a great place to put in duck units or larger lakes for fishing and waterfowl hunting.
No hunting has been allowed on the ranch for the past year and the deer herd has a very good age distribution.
Both exterior fences and interior fences are in good to fair shape. There are excellent roads on the ranch from previous oil & gas activity (which is currently only found near the highway). There is also a cattle pen and corral near the highway frontage.
There is a hunters camp with a water well and electricity near the center of the property.
Water: This area is well known for having very good groundwater that is shallow and of excellent quality. There are currently three working electric water wells and two solar wells, with several more capped water wells that could be put into service.
There are multiple small ponds on the ranch with one of them hooked into a electric water well to keep it full.
there are two small creeks that run through the property that only hold significant water during very wet periods, but they are lined with huge live oaks and have sandy bottoms.
Electricity: Electricity is found at various places throughout the ranch.
Minerals: Minerals are available. There are currently only three gas/oil wells left active on the property and there is one salt water disposal well near the highway.
