Treadwell Ranch & Recreation Investments

Sellers add easements and separate wind, water, and minerals to the point where a Buyer needs the protection of a Buyer’s Broker. Many larger ranches are legacy investments where holistic practices of conservation, mitigation, and stewardship are the basis for evaluation and should be driving principles in your broker as well. Brian Treadwell is the only land broker in the world to have won the Texas Statewide Lone Star Land Steward Award and the Aldo Leopold Conservation Award for excellence in land management. Working with a Buyer’s rep saves your time, money, and liability. For no extra money, put a professional on your team. One phone call to Brian answers a lot of ranch buying questions. TR&R also develops turn-key ranch investment portfolios, from acquisition to management placement and traditional operation strategies.

Representing Ranch Buyers Since 1999 Brian Treadwell Broker/Consultant

South Texas v Webb County v Freer

The Dipper Ranch is a 5,600-acre high fence whitetail deer hunting ranch and breeding operation abundant with native South Texas game, including trophy whitetail, dove, quail, javelin, wild hogs, buffalo, trophy bass and a variety of small game. The ranch is 23 miles from Encinal and 24 miles from Freer. The front entrances touch Highway 44. The owners have invested considerable resources and time into the Dipper Ranch with the goal of building a world-class whitetail hunting experience. While the ranch is blessed with excellent native brush, the owners launched an intensive supplemental feeding and range improvement program. Over the years, they have installed 32 protein feeder stations that provide in excess of 120 tones of protein annually. The wild deer population is approximately one deer per every 14 acres. Even though Dipper Ranch possesses incredible native whitetail genetics, an intensive pasture management program has been designed and implemented. To support their program, the owners constructed a deer breeding facility in 2007 to further enhance the development and quality of their whitetail population. The trophy breeding herd consists of ten 200+ Boone & Crockett-class whitetail bucks and 150 does of superior genetic quality. The Dipper Ranch has abundant water with 13 lakes and ponds, stocked with fish, as well as 1 water well. There are 20,000+ square feet of new facilities, which include a main house, guest quarters, ranch foreman’s house and a ranch facilities manager’s house. In addition, a 10,000-squarefoot operations hub includes a mechanics shop, welding and fabrications facility plus a wood working shop. Last, there is a 11,250-square-foot equipment storage facility that includes a ranch office with a game processing and storage room. Owner will convey of all owner’s minerals which is approximately a 1/8 plus 50% royalty on 640 acres. No production and no oil drilling activity on the ranch. Property ID: 46261

Caiman Ranch 1,000 to 2,002 Acres

O

South Texas v La Salle County v Encinal

Originally part of the 250,000-acre Callaghan Ranch, the Caiman Ranch was in the same family from 1947 up until 2008. About 140 miles south of San Antonio, 55 miles northeast of Laredo and 20 miles east of Encinal, this property is long known as the “Promised Land” for bruiser, whitetail bucks. Caiman Ranch carries the reputation as one of the best whitetail deer ranches in Texas. Deer taken from the ranch have consistently won local contests, including Los Cazadores, the Muy Grande and the Cola Blanca. This sportsman’s paradise also features lots of turkey, wild hogs, quail and dove. The ranch is fenced and cross-fenced into four pastures and features 8-foot net wire game-proof fencing along the eastern boundary and barbed wire fencing along the remaining boundaries. All of the major South Texas brush species are represented in abundance, including guajillo, guayacan, granjeno, blackbrush, mesquite trees and Huisache trees, which provide food for wildlife, in addition to the excellent brush. Improvements include a 4,200-square-foot, Spanish-style hacienda with six bedrooms, five baths, concrete slab, stucco exterior, Saltillo tile floors, mostly 9-foot ceilings, deep porches and a large walled courtyard with a traditional outdoor fountain. Other buildings include a 1,700-square-foot foreman’s house with three bedrooms and two baths, a 2,665-square-foot barn, a 1,640-square-foot shed and a 600-square-foot workshop. The Caiman Ranch also features plentiful water and excellent level to gently rolling topography. Ranging in elevation from 393 feet at the main entrance to about 322feet in the Los Olmos Creekbed, the ranch features soils with clay or loam surface layers, which are the key to the excellent, diverse vegetation. A 4,280-foot-deep well out of the Carrizo Aquifer supplies water to the headquarters, one of two stock tanks on the ranch and various water troughs. Wet-weather Olmos Creek flows through the western section of the ranch, and holds pockets of water for extended periods of time. This is the perfect opportunity for an outdoorsman who desires to own one of the best whitetail deer herds in the state. No production and no oil drilling activity on the ranch. Property ID: 46262

Neches Mountain Ranch Central Texas v Anderson Co. v Neches

J

Just outside of the quaint little town of Neches, about 10 minutes north of Palestine, this beautiful ranch offers diverse terrain: rolling hills, woods, pasture and numerous spring-fed creeks. These 664.58 acres are of some of the best in Anderson County with right at a mile of FM 2267 frontage. The focal point is definitely the 360-degree mountaintop view made available thanks to the 600-foot elevation. This has to be one of, if not the highest, elevations in the county. All the underbrush has been removed from the mountain, leaving just the large trees to provide for

seemingly endless views. This would, without a doubt, make the finest spot in the county to build a magnificent home. The entire perimeter has just been high fenced with attention paid to every detail concerning water gaps and creek crossings. There was an extensive amount of work done with dozers and other heavy equipment on the soft surface roads, underbrushing the hillsides, construction of multiple lakes and ponds, creek enhancements and other projects that have laid the foundation for the creation of a true “showplace” hunting ranch. Improvements include a new metal barn on a slab, a new 41-foot, fifth wheel travel trailer that is top of the line, three top-notch 10-foot tower blinds and a deep water well. This turn-key ranch is ready for your enjoyment and personal touches, so load up the family and the four-wheelers and come to Anderson County to see this beautiful place before it sells. Current owner respectfully asking for serious, qualified inquiries only please. Recently reduced to $2,490,000.
