ocated on the Pedernales River, River Valley Ranch offers an unrivaled pairing of seclusion and accessibility. The ranch can be reached in an hour from either Austin or San Antonio where the solitude and breathtaking beauty of the Pedernales River await. Its prime

location puts the best of the Texas Hill Country within easy proximity. Johnson City is a short 15minute drive, while the shops and unique dining experiences of Fredericksburg can be savored in less than an hour. Tee it up on the challenging golf courses of Horseshoe Bay on the shores of Lake LBJ, a mere 30 minutes away. Here, you can truly get away from it all and get to it all.

Only a handful of Texas ranches offer the ability to possess a piece of a legend. River Valley Ranch presents such an opportunity.

Only a handful of Texas ranches offer the ability to possess a piece of a legend. River Valley Ranch presents such an opportunity. A rarity among ranches, it can become a personal oasis, offering private escape and solitude along the banks of the picturesque Pedernales River. Its 1,561Âą acres encompass hilltops to the north that afford stunning 360-degree vistas of the Texas Hill Country and Pedernales River Valley. The southern edge of the ranch is bordered by 1.33 miles of riverfront. This generous access, where gently shaded banks meet deep pools and cascading rapids, creates a paradise for water recreation. Fly-fishing, kayaking, swimming or merely reflecting on the majesty of the river can evolve into a daily routine. With its ever-changing terrain, the ranch is a natural for horseback riding or mountain biking. Attesting to its ecological richness and diversity, a recent survey by a team of botanists revealed the ranch to harbor 45 species of trees, shrubs and woody vines and over 140 species of wildflowers.

A recent survey revealed the ranch to harbor 45 species of trees, shrubs & woody vines & over 140 species of wildflowers.

To view this landscape is to take in a naturally painted canvas that extends in all directions. You’ll still have decisions to make, but they will be gratifying—like where to nestle your family headquarters, choosing from an array of compelling possibilities. For the avid sportsman, the ranch is a hunting and fishing paradise, rich with whitetail deer, Rio Grande turkey and dove. Bass, perch and catfish abound in the waters of the Pedernales River. Currently under an agricultural exemption, the land could easily be placed under a wildlife exemption. River Valley Ranch is offered to one who, in their heart, desires to be a steward of this slice of heritage Texas, a conservation-minded group who wishes to craft a legacy safeguarding the wellbeing of the ranch’s unique plant and animal life by preserving their natural habitat or a visionary whose goals include protecting the character and spirit of this magnificent landscape. v For more information contact Mike Luigs at land/water/sky, 512 914-5058 (mobile) or mluigs@landwatersky.com.

Spectacular 4 Aces Ranch Private Live Water Hunting Preserve

Covering Two Counties in the Texas Hill Country

T

he 4 Aces Ranch is a beautifully managed, fully operational wildlife preserve on 17,117Âą acres stretching

across both Uvalde and Kinney Counties in southwest Texas. It is the single largest, contiguous, live water ranch currently on the market in the Texas Hill Country and is a spectacular opportunity with valuable potential.

The

property

has

a

highly

transitional topography with low rolling hills and deep canyons scattered with live oak and junipers. After a rainy spring in Texas, the ranch is lush, green and alive with the rich scent of pinion pine. Seven miles of Live Oak Creek are fully self-contained on the ranch, running north to south through the middle of the property, behind the ranch headquarters. The property is loaded with private water, streams, springs, wells and windmills and is a private game park paradise, with a multitude of operational improvements implemented by the owner and a diverse, viable native and exotic wildlife population. The main residence at the ranch headquarters

is

a

beautiful

five-bedroom,

four-bathroom ranch house with a huge entertaining patio, finished in native limestone, overlooking several of the natural waterfalls on Live Oak Creek. Two of the bedrooms are master suites, one upstairs and one downstairs, and the house is designed with rustic elegance and privacy. A fully updated kitchen

throughout the residence provide a welcome rendezvous at the end of a long satisfying hunt or day touring the ranch. The huge back patio is designed for outdoor entertainment with a very large open-air fireplace, large fire pit and a completely covered outdoor bar. This is a wonderful vacation getaway for a busy family on the go or the perfect setting for corporate functions and twilight cocktail parties. 4 Aces is a recreational paradise on the western boundary of prime Texas Hill Country. In addition to Live Oak Creek, Sycamore Creek is largely self-contained on the property, and both are fed by more than 30 freshwater springs. Salmon Peak and Boiling Mountain are the two highest peaks in Uvalde and Kinney Counties, are both fully located on the property and provide a challenging day of hiking. 4 Aces Ranch has a wide array of beautiful trees and South Texas brush, attracting native wildlife and providing good ground cover; at the same time, the owner has cleared close to 6,000 acres of cedar without disrupting the integrity of the land. Throughout the project, long-buried, old homesteads were uncovered, dinosaur tracks discovered and early American cave art found, and there is undoubtedly still more to be explored and unearthed in 50 Indian mounds and countless caves. Miles and miles of paved and improved roads facilitate an extensive range of access to many corners of the property, although the entire property has only been seen from the air in helicopter passes. The entire perimeter of the ranch is completely high-fenced with close to 50 miles of state-of-the-art game fence. 4 Aces is a smooth-running operation that could easily transition into a commercial hunting enterprise. The ranch is a beautifully parked, rugged sanctuary, and the owner, along with a wildlife biologist, has created a highly efficient wildlife game park with highquality habitat and well-managed native and

exotic wildlife populations, including axis, scimitar-horned oryx, red sheep and red stag, eland, zebras, black buck, Catalina goats, aoudad, gemsbok, fallow deer, Corsican sheep and turkey. There are extensive game pastures throughout the ranch, with an incredible variety of wildlife. A multitude of outbuilding and support structures facilitate the full function of the property, including a massive hay barn, several large covered shops to house equipment and complete metal fabrications. 15 spring-fed water wells provide natural observation points and 14-ton bulk protein feeders are appropriately placed throughout the property, with hunting blinds and strategically placed game towers. Roughly one mile from ranch headquarters, a three-bedroom hunting cabin is comfortably situated in a shady, live oak grove. The big, gracious back patio is set with an inviting fire pit and rocking chairs, and the retreat provides a welcome midday respite or trophy camp for special guests. The ranch sits between the towns of Uvalde and Camp Wood, Texas, and is approximately one hour to the Del Rio International Airport, which now has daily service to Houston on Continental Airlines. In addition, there are several locations to choose from on the property, offering an excellent opportunity to build a landing strip, which would open access to private jet charters. The 4 Aces Ranch is a gorgeous, self-contained, live water wildlife preserve affording complete privacy and freedom in a diverse, beautiful, pioneer landscape. It would make a valuable vacation

Hunting Ranch in the Texas Hill Country

T

he Carta Valley Wildlife Ranch is the ultimate exotic game ranch situated in the Texas Hill Country between Rocksprings and Del Rio in Edwards County. Once owned by a Texas

legend, this sprawling 4,107-acre ranch is a showcase property with dramatic topography and trophy wildlife that will impress the most discriminating buyer. Easily accessible with two miles of highway frontage, the Carta Valley Wildlife Ranch has an impressive stone entrance. Passing through the front gate, one can immediately feel the expanse of the valley and the solid presence of the ranch. The beautiful six-bedroom, three- and one-half-bath main lodge boasts tall ceilings, exposed logs, native rock floors and two gorgeous stone fireplaces, all atop a majestic peak. The main lodge has a distinctly rustic charm with a wide sweeping veranda completing the ambiance. The Carta Valley Wildlife Ranch is a working game ranch with several specially designed working pens, large paddocks, barns, feeders and blinds. There are five clear water wells; two of the wells are equipped with submersible pumps, and individual windmills power the remaining three. The water storage and distribution systems have been revamped, and many new, properly spaced watering locations have been established. Twenty new 2,000-pound protein feeders have been placed in optimal sites, and 12 spin corn feeders have been positioned near executive hunting blinds. The entire ranch perimeter is high-fenced and has undergone extensive renovation with state-of-the-art game proofing. The ranch is divided into four separate, contiguous pastures that are also high-fenced and easily accessed by a recently improved, comprehensive interior road system. The current owners have an established relationship with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and have employed a private game biologist to implement a management plan designed to maintain

balance in the game population. Currently, 122 robust whitetail does and 7 bucks have been released on the ranch. Additionally, a healthy number of axis, blackbuck antelope, aoudad, mouflan sheep, Rio Grande turkey and whitewinged dove inhabit the hills and hollows of the property. The ranch is efficiently managed by an on-site husband and wife caretaker team who will treat you to a home-cooked breakfast and provide knowledge covering every square inch of the ranch, which includes the location of the property’s gigantic cave. Additionally, water systems, feed routines and animal rotations are comfortably in place to ensure an easy transition of ownership. Workers’ quarters are discreetly placed on the property, with an additional semi-secluded guest home or manager’s residence. Nearby Del Rio and its sister city Acuna, Mexico, are both safe and exciting border towns, with excellent restaurants, charming shops and other attractions, including the Val Verde Winery—Texas’ oldest. Also nearby is Lake Amistad National Recreation Area, known as a “top ten” Texas recreational and leisure destination. It is the largest lake in Texas and famous among bass fishermen. The reservoir affords a multitude of activities from houseboat vacations and water skiing to bird watching and overnight camping. In addition, some of the best examples of ancient Indian rock art on the North American continent can be found in the caves of the Devil's and the Pecos Rivers, which feed into the reservoir. Easy international access to the ranch is made possible by Continental Airlines, which offers daily flights into Del Rio International Airport. The Carta Valley Wildlife Ranch is in a prime location and outfitted with all the amenities to keep every member of a family or hunting party entertained. It is an excellent investment opportunity and should be seriously considered by those seeking a first-class retreat, second home or turn-key ranch. With brilliant night skies and colorful, majestic sunsets, the Texas Hill Country is a stunning, romantic setting for early evening al-fresco dining, family vacations and entertaining clients.

Nestled under the canopy of shade trees, a newly renovated and updated six-bedroom lodge welcomes the ranch’s new owner. Perfect for weekend getaways and hunting excursions, the lodge can also serve as a headquarters while one is creating their own vision of a ranch home. The only obstacle will be choosing a site from the many and varied possibilities the ranch lays out before you. The lodge’s most desired amenity is just steps from the back door: almost 1,780 feet of Cottonwood Creek. The year-round flow invites you to dip your line for catfish or take a dip in one of the natural swimming holes. The jewel of the ranch is the expansive frontage on the picturesque Pedernales River. Rare among Texas ranches, the boundaries of Cottonwood Creek Ranch encompass both banks, further ensuring the ability to control privacy. Recreational possibilities abound on the river, from fly-fishing and kayaking to simply indulging yourself with the serenity of a sunset picnic. The ranch is a paradise for hunting and fishing, rich with whitetail deer, Rio Grande turkey and dove. Currently under an agricultural exemption, the land could easily be placed into a wildlife exemption. Cottonwood Creek Ranch is offered to one who, in their heart, desires to be a steward of this slice of heritage Texas, a conservation-minded group who wishes to craft a legacy safeguarding the well-being of the ranch’s unique plant and animal life by preserving their natural habitat or a visionary whose goals include protecting the character and spirit of this magnificent landscape from being fractured and developed. v

groundskeeper. The main house has 3,800± square feet of air-conditioned area with a sunken-floor trophy room, three bedrooms, three and a half baths, study/exercise room and an extra-large kitchen/dining area. A set of four deer pens for raising genetically superior deer have water piped to each and a series of gates and alleys that connect all pens to each other. All game water lies in two ponds, built by owner, lined with polypropylene. Soil is back-filled on top of the liner for the protection of the liner, and the only water loss is through evaporation and animal consumption. Hoof stock on the ranch includes whitetail, elk, sika, axis, fallow, blackbuck antelope and aoudad. Numbers vary from as few as four aoudad to as many as 50+ axis and whitetails. Songbirds are a real plus. There are several species that spend part of the year on the ranch, with scarlet tanagers and painted bunting being the favorites. Many other birds make the ranch home for parts of the year with frequent visits from hawks, owls, falcons, ducks, geese, sandhill cranes, doves, quail and the ever-present Rio Grand turkey. An occasional eagle will land on the premises. In the spring and early summer, at least 75 hummingbirds call this home. $2,450,000.

Lavaca River Ranch

T

Southeast Texas v Jackson County v Edna The Lavaca River Ranch is in Jackson County, which borders Victoria County. The 13,500-acre ranch fronts the Lavaca River for 5± miles. The main agricultural productions are currently rice and cattle grazing due to the region’s greater amount of annual rainfall, as opposed to other areas of Texas. Though rice is the current crop, the potential to convert to bio fuel crops is enormous and could affect the property’s future value. This ranch has tremendous potential as an intensive cattle operation. We have a detailed analysis of soils and grasses if you are interested in maximizing the cattle production. The property has not historically been used as a game ranch, but has all the makings for a stellar operation. This area of Texas has some of the best turkey, goose, duck, dove and quail hunting in the state. The saltwater angler will appreciate the under-an-hour drive from Jackson County to the Gulf of Mexico. Five wells on the property utilized for crop irrigation can pump 3,000 gallons per minute, but are historically run at 1,800 to 2,000 gallons per minute. Set atop the Gulf Coast Aquifer, known to have the highest annual yield of any Texas aquifer, the ranch is perfect for multiple lake developments. If land is the source of all wealth, the Lavaca River Ranch is the perfect land bank. $47,250,000.

Historic Ranch

South Texas v Maverick County v Carrizo Springs/Eagle Pass

R

Rough and beautiful usually don’t go together, but that’s a perfect description of the wild brush country that is the Chittim ranch lands. Flat to moderately rolling, this well-known area is covered with the major species of South Texas brush, and is also home to grama grass, buffel, along with beneficial forbs such as filaree and hairy vetch. Seven large lakes are well spaced throughout the pasture and hold water very well even during dry times. Well stocked with Florida strain largemouth bass many years ago, excellent fishing is possible year-round. But it is the heavy, dark-horned whitetail deer that reside in this part of Maverick County that mesmerize even the most seasoned deer hunter. Low-fenced on three sides with large neighbors throughout, wildlife on this ranch is free-roaming and sheer distance creates the boundaries. The ranch has been carefully managed to ensure proper harvesting. Quail and dove hunting can also be enjoyed, with good numbers of both bobs and blues. Waterfowling is possible with the presence of the lakes. This ranch offers many sporting opportunities. Having been held in the same family since the late 1800s, this is an opportunity to make an historic purchase. There is no ranch in South Texas with a more rich and colored history spanning from the cattle drive era up to today’s Boone and Crockett deer aficionados than the Chittim Ranch. Largely unchanged since the beginning, this ranch has history that is yet to be written. It bears reiteration that this is big buck country by even the most stringent standards. The well-designed road system allows passage to all areas of the ranch with two entrances along the two miles of Hwy 277 frontage. Cross-fenced into two pastures, 1,450+ and 4,400+ acres, this property has cattle pens, shipping trap and electricity available.

Miller Creek Ranch

N

Texas Hill Country v Blanco County v Johnson City

Nestled in a valley surrounded by tall peaks, the Miller Creek Ranch is truly one of the crown jewels of the Hill Country. These 895 acres have been cleared of cedars, encouraging the growth of native grasses, trees and plants. Both sides of 6,000 feet of crystal-clear, dammed Miller Creek, one of the strongest year-round creeks in the Hill Country, flow throughout the property. Several stock tanks filled with bass, catfish and crappie also provide excellent fishing opportunities. Game fenced and cross-fenced, this property features numerous whitetail deer and axis as well as an assortment of other Central Texas native wildlife. Partially operated as a horse farm, the fenced green pastures and 16-stall horse barn of Miller Creek Ranch act as scenic additions to the landscape when viewing the property from the spectacular hills surrounding them. A recently completed 5,000-square-foot manor home utilizes native stone inside and out and includes the numerous custom features expected of a modern-day luxury estate. Miller Creek Ranch is located just outside of Johnson City, 45 minutes west of Austin and 55 minutes from San Antonio.

San Ramon Ranch and Mendiola Ranch

D

South Texas v Northern Webb Co. v Encinal

Don’t let anyone fool you; the “Golden Triangle” (Webb, LaSalle and Dimmit Counties) offers the best trophy whitetail hunting in the world! This coveted triangle is home to two amazing ranches. Neighbors to the famous 90,000-acre Callahan Ranch, the San Ramon Ranch and the Mendiola Ranch not only “grow” highscoring, free-roaming B&C bucks, but are also blessed with an abundance of natural protein, thick protective habitat, good water and the much sought-after “red dirt!” Intensely game managed and renowned for producing heavy, dark-horned monster bucks, these ranches offer outstanding genetics and numbers that are steadfastly in place. Located just 1.5 miles east of IH-35 and six miles south of Encinal, the San Ramon Ranch (available as 620, 1,240 and 1,500-acre ranches) has had selective brush clearing, sendero widening and quail habitat enhancement. Tanks and water lines run into each pasture via two 300' electric communal wells. Quality double, elevated deer blinds and year-round feed pens are already in place. Wing shooting for quail and dove can be spectacular! Located 14 miles east of IH-35 on Callahan Road, the Mendiola Ranch (available as 760 acres, 1,253 acres with home, 2,642 acres and 4,655 acres) is a “diamond in the rough.” As one travels down the Callahan Road to the Mendiola, the anticipation mounts. One never knows what might step out of the brush next: a giant 190" 12 pointer, a bobcat, a coyote or a mountain lion! Well watered with some big tanks and two electric wells providing underground water to each pasture, the Mendiola offers great quail hunting in good years. These two ranches already enjoy great reputations and will work for the true South Texas trophy hunter. “You won’t be disappointed, you’ll be Texas proud!” Mendiola: from $1,695 per acre. San Ramon: from $1,825 per acre. Sold!

Located in the rolling hills of East Texas at the edge of the famed Piney Woods, this 223.9-acre property boasts some of the most beautiful acreage in Anderson County. Half of the property is in improved pastures of Bahia and coastal Bermuda grass with several parcels

Daniels Farm Northeast Texas v Anderson County v Elkhart

cross-fenced. Within the pastures are two man-made, spring-fed ponds stocked with large-mouth bass, bream, perch and blue-channel catfish. These ponds have never been without adequate water in the 40 years since their construction. Annually, whitetail, deer, fox squirrels, armadillos, rabbits, raccoons, opossums, quail and mourning doves are seen on the property. Running through the wooded portion of the property, with good stands of hardwoods and soft woods, Andy’s Spring is a popular hunting spot. The sandy loam soil is outstanding for farming and/or ranching. There are areas of gravel in the wooded portion that were partially harvested commercially decades ago; the soft wood timber was thinned five years ago and can be profitably harvested. There are two water wells, one hand-dug artesian well in a paddock and another deep well near the house. The house, an old farmhouse, perfectly situated on the highest point of the property, has two bedrooms, one bathroom, a large living/dining area with woodburning fireplace, a kitchen with an island and city water. There is a detached two-car garage, and just behind the house is a small building with a bedroom, loft and bathroom. The barn is currently used to store the tractor, farm implements and trailer. While located in a quiet, bucolic setting, the property is only three miles southwest of Elkhart and 15 minutes from Palestine. For more details, please call Vickie Mosier 903 360-0927.

The Snake Creek Ranch is a large farming and ranching operation southwest of Alliance, Nebraska. This operation includes 4,403 acres under 23 pivot irrigation systems, approximately 1,700 acres of sub-irrigated meadows and 10,743 acres of native rangeland for a total of 16,846 acres. Snake Creek, which meanders through the ranch for over eight miles, is not a major stream, but is spring-fed and runs most of the year. As it winds through the ranch, it provides a reliable source of livestock water and supports the subirrigated meadows. The Ogallala Aquifer, which

Snake Creek Ranch Nebraska v Box Butte County v Alliance

supplies water to the irrigation wells, has the thickest water-bearing supply of water in the western states. This aquifer has been monitored on the ranch and has remained nearly constant for the past 30 years. The feedlot is constructed of pipe and sucker rod with cement bunks and pads, scales, covered working facilities, feed mill and grain storage. A new, completely lined storage lagoon, with the capability to pump water through an adjoining pivot system, was recently completed, bringing the feedlot into compliance with all Nebraska and Federal DEQ regulations. There are five residences, including a ranch manager’s home at the feedlot. The 4,403 acres, under 23 pivots ranging in size from 131 to 447 acres, have water supplied from one well, except the largest pivot which requires two wells. The ranch supports a large number of cows and feeds a large number of cattle through the feedlot, and six of the pivots are used to produce irrigated grass or annual crops for grazing. These six are divided into quarters (pods) with “lay down” electric fences, which allow the pivots to pass from one pod to the next. The irrigated grass is typically stocked at the rate of 1.2 to 1.4 pairs per acre. A state-of-the-art calving facility, built in 2004, has been used to calve out over 1,500 cows. Up to 100 cows can be put under cover, plus there are 20 individual stalls for cows and newborns. Due to the fact that Initiative 300 (Nebraska’s ban on ownership of agricultural land by non-family corporations) has recently been declared unconstitutional, the now-open door to outside investments in agricultural properties will likely have a positive effect on farmland values in Nebraska. Agricultural production appears to be entering a new era of prosperity with higher commodity and cattle prices, and Snake Creek Ranch has the potential to take advantage of this prosperity with its diversity of crops and cattle production. There is no other large-scale cattle and crop operation available in the Rocky Mountain or High Plains region to compare with the Snake Creek Ranch. There are many options available with this ranch. The availability of summer grazing through irrigated or dry land or a combination of both, and the vast number of pivot irrigation systems with the incredible amount of underground water, will ensure the production of grass, alfalfa, corn, dry beans, beets, potatoes or small grains. The size, availability of water, top-notch facilities, high-quality pastures and above-average condition of improvements along with fertile soils make the Snake Creek Ranch an ideal investment for present and future generations. $15,000,000. Notice: The seller is willing to sell 5,260 acres on the east side of the ranch, which would include 11 pivot systems for a total of 2,058 acres of irrigated cropland, the feedlot with all of the improvements, 3,000 acres of pasture including nearly one mile of Snake Creek and adjoining meadows. $6,500,000.
