lets me know that he hired a local attorney to help him out. So, I call up the lawyer and tell him about my concerns. He said, “Dane, I had the exact same feelings as you did. I just got off the phone with an attorney in Chicago, and Dane, that guy can buy anything he wants and he will pay cash.” So for the next three days, the guy sleeps in his van, parked in our office parking lot, trying to get all of this done. It was right before Christmas and he wanted it all done so he could go home for Christmas. He paid $3.7 million dollars in cash, closed on all the properties and has never been seen or heard from again. He never even stepped foot on any one of those properties. But, the moral to that story is you cannot judge a book by its cover. That taught me a lesson and because of it, I never doubt anyone. What is the thing in life you are most proud of? I am proud of my accomplishments and have come a long way from where I started. I’ve been very blessed. But, the thing I am most proud of is my daughters and the kind of young women they have turned out to be. Although, I think I need to give my wife 99% of the credit for that because it seemed like I was always working. But, I am real proud of what they have turned out to be. What is the strangest experience you have had showing a ranch? That’s easy. I had a gentleman call me one day and wanted to see a ranch. He called me the morning of the showing and told me he would just meet me out at the ranch. I told him that would be fine, loaded up my Polaris, my preferred method of showing a ranch, and headed out. I pulled up to the property and sitting at the gate was a Cadillac Escalade. Which is normal, a guy from Dallas wanting to buy a ranch, but when he got out, he had these boots on, up to his knees, pants all tucked in and two six shooters on him, two guns, John Wayne kind of stuff. I mean, that’s not normal, a little strange. I walked up to him, handed him my card and apologized, “I am sorry, I came a little unprepared. I only brought a knife to a gun fight.”

He let me know that he was prepared for walking the ranch and that the guns were loaded with snake shot. I let him know that yes, we do indeed have snakes, but rarely see them and that we would be riding in the Polaris. As we are riding the property, one of the guns falls out of the holster and lands on the baseboard of the Polaris. I stopped, and we had a little discussion about not wanting any accidents. The guns went back to the Escalade. What do you think is the greatest benefit of owning land? First of all, I think it is a good investment. Second, I think it something that you can go and physically enjoy and get something out of it, unlike owning cd’s or stocks or gold, something you can really go and utilize and appreciate. Land has always been a pretty good investment. You know there’s that old saying, “They’re not making any more of it.” If you had to pick another career….any career…What would you do? Probably something in wildlife. I think, I might be a game warden. Those guys get to do all kinds of stuff and they have full jurisdiction. It’s not one of those jobs you are going to get rich at either, but it sure isn’t boring. What is your favorite thing about Texas? My favorite thing about Texas is the history. This state has a tremendous amount of history. Coming from that part of the state, where there are a lot of really old and really big ranches, legendary ranches, you get to listen to the old timers, talking about settling the land, dealing with drought and indians. What is your idea of a perfect day on the ranch? Just being able to be out there, watch and appreciate how everything works. Witness a baby calf being born and just knowing he has to get up and nurse. If you get the time to sit there and really watch how the animals, comingle and work with the land. No phones, no computers, just quiet and nature in all its glory.

Groundwater Rights Have Become Negotiable in Property Sales

the Trust’s attorney gave formal notice of a $500,000 claim against the City. After the City rejected the Trust’s claim, the Trust filed suit against the

City, seeking a declaratory judgment that 1) it owned the groundwater beneath the 15-acre tract, and 2) the City’s claim of ownership to those water rights should be rejected. The Trust also sought monetary damages

As the supply of Texas groundwater continues to dwindle, the value escalates and landowners realize that it can add another revenue stream to the property. It is not uncommon for groundwater ownership to be one of the negotiable points in rural land sales. Groundwater ownership is sometimes retained by the seller and the buyer takes possession of the property with limited or no access to water beneath the surface. In the following paragraphs Regan Beck and Stephanie McMullen, Assistant General Counsels for Public Policy, with the Texas Farm Bureau describe a Texas Court of Appeals case between the City of Del Rio and Clayton Sam Colt Hamilton Trust. According to the record in 1997, the state sold 15 acres from the ranch’s western border to the City of Del Rio. The warranty deed that conveyed the tract to the City contained the following clause: “Grantor RESERVES unto Grantor, its successors, heirs and assigns forever all water rights associated with said tract, however, Grantor may not use any portion of the surface of said tract for exploring, drilling or producing any such water.” “In 2000, three years after the City purchased the tract, they realized that

for unconstitutional taking and action for trespass. City of Del Rio responded with a counterclaim, seeking a declaratory judgment that the warranty deed did not leave the Trust with “right, title, or interest in any groundwater pumped to the surface by the City” on the 15acre tract and that any groundwater pumped to the surface was the City’s property. The City also pled for condemnation of the water rights. “McMullen explained that the trial court concluded that: • The water rights reservation was valid and enforceable. • The City’s argument that groundwater, until captured, cannot be the subject of ownership was an incorrect statement of the law. • Ownership to the groundwater rights beneath the 15-acre tract belonged to the Trust. “The City appealed and the Texas Court of Appeals upheld the judgment of the trial court,” says Beck. “This court decision affirms the right of landowners to reserve groundwater rights when selling property..”

their municipal drinking water supply needed augmenting,” Beck relates.

Chapter 36 of the Texas Water Code gives groundwater conservation

Increase Rural Property Income with Wildlife based recreation Continued growth of urbanization provides an opportunity for ranches to increase income through wildlife based recreation offerings to the public. Some landowners are currently taking advantage of these opportunities; but there are still unmet market needs. The majority of our population has little opportunity to enjoy rural life, view nature or learn how their food is produced. Many yearn for the outdoors and are willing to pay for a chance to enjoy the opportunities that ranches can offer. Customer expectations of their ranch visits vary considerably. Some clientele want posh accommodations, gourmet prepared food, a wet bar, and pampering by the ranch staff. Others want to be on their own, sleep in campers, and cook their meals. Then there are expectation gradients in between these two extremes. Differences in expectations allow a landowner to develop a successful wildlife based recreation business that fits available resources. Craig Bowen of Plateau Land and Wildlife Management refers to wildlife based recreation as outdoor recreation. He says, “The three primary types are hunting, fishing and nature tourism. Hunting opportunities in Texas include white-tailed and mule deer, turkey, dove, quail, feral hogs and exotics. A fishing business requires lakes or ponds stocked with bass, perch, catfish and other popular species. Nature tourism is activities such as bird watching, hiking, horseback riding, guided nature tours, star gazing and geological (formation viewing and rock hunting).” HUNTING Wildlife and habitat management is usually required to provide customers with a good hunting experience. Help in establishment and execution of a wildlife management plan can be obtained from Texas Parks and Wildlife (TP&W) through their Private Lands program. Services are free to landowners upon their requests through a telephone call to a TP&W district office. “Once the request is made, a TP&W biologist schedules a site visit with the landowner or manager to assess habitat potential and offer guidance on improvements for the wildlife species of interest,” says Linda Campbell Texas Parks & Wildlife Private Lands and Public Hunting Program Director. “Once the property’s potential has been determined, the biologist provides recommendations and, if requested, helps the landowner develop a written wildlife management plan (WMP). The WMP is a guide to achieve the landowner’s stated natural resource management goals. Components of the WMP include a description of habitats, current land uses and management practices, and specific habitat and population management recommendations. TP&W provides follow-up assistance as needed to help evaluate progress toward management goals and suggest additional actions.” “After a property is ready for hunting, TP&W can provide the customers,” Campbell continues. “We lease land for hunting dove, waterfowl, pheasant, quail, feral hog, squirrel and rabbits. Length of the lease and price per acre are negotiable. To participate in this program, the landowner is required to make his property available to hunters, who have the Annual Public Hunting Permit for the agreed upon dates. A second requirement is to implement any habitat improvements that are identified in the lease agreement. “TP&W also pays landowners a negotiated fee to provide a two-day public hunting opportunity for white-tailed deer, mule deer, pronghorn and exotics.

In this program, we draw the hunters and provide them with your ranch rules and information. Landowners run the hunt on the specific dates in the contract agreement.” FISHING Like hunting, the first step in developing a fishing business is to inventory what you have to offer. How large are the lakes and are they currently stocked with fish? Are the lakes aesthetically pleasing? Can the lakes be reached by allweather roads? The answer to these questions will show what you have to sell and what changes need to be made for public acceptance. “Larger ponds and reservoirs offer more options for managing fish populations,” says Dr. Billy Higginbotham, Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Service Wildlife and Fisheries Specialist. “For example, landowners with 10-acre reservoirs are in a more favorable position to manage exclusively for largemouth bass than those with one-acre ponds. Even though a market may exist for a target species such as largemouth bass, landowners might consider other species such as channel and blue catfish, sunfish, crappie and even rainbow trout during the winter months. These alternative species may appeal to a broader range of anglers and offer more fishing opportunities.” Value-added amenities such as shade, toilet facilities, cabins, a picnic area, camp sites, food and beverages, bait, tackle, rental equipment, ice and a fish cleaning service should be considered in the plan. Will some of these amenities attract more customers? Will the amenities generate enough additional revenue to pay their costs? Would you rather not have to deal with the public in leasing your lakes for fishing? Will lake and fish management require time that you don’t have? If your answer to either of these questions is yes, you can consider other options for capturing income from sport fishing. An example of one option is to work through a company like Private Water Fishing. “Private Water Fishing is a company organized to manage customer relations for landowners,” says Steve Alexander. “We have been in business for 14 years and have a clientele of 450 fisherman members. These members pay an annual fee for current access to 52 private lakes plus a daily fishing rate. The landowner receives the majority of the daily fishing rate. “By leasing lakes through Private Water Fishing (PWF), the landowner does not have to solicit fishing customers nor act as their host when they fish the property. PWF carries liability insurance for each property and requires all members to sign a hold harmless clause. We have a strict set of rules and code of conduct that our members must follow. Our program is primarily used by hunting ranches and beef cattle operations.” “We also assist landowners in fish and lake management through our consulting service,” Alexander continues. “Our services include monitoring fish populations and determining appropriate management practices.” NATURE TOURISM Type of nature tourism business selected for a property should depend upon its natural resources and the amount of time that the landowner or manager is willing to devote to the enterprise. Help in assessing natural resources can be obtained from the TP&W district biologist.

“Bird and wildlife viewing is one of the most popular types of nature tourism,” says Shelly Plante, Texas Parks and Wildlife Nature Tourism Manager. “In a 2006 survey, it was shown that wildlife watching contributed $2.9 billion to the Texas economy and since that time, it has continued to grow. Rich in diverse species, Texas is a perfect place for wildlife viewing. In addition, the Lone Star State is one of the top birding destinations in the world.” “TP&W has created nine driving trail maps that direct people to the best spots in the state to observe wildlife such as birds, butterflies, bats or pronghorns,” explains Plante. “At some of the locations birds and wildlife are viewed from the road and at others, they are viewed from walking trails. The trails include sites on federal, state, county, community and private lands. If your property is close to one of the trails, you can install a walking trail and eventually be listed on the map, provided you have wildlife to view. You can charge for the use of your viewing paths as long as you have a way to collect the money.” If your property is far enough from residential and commercial lights to have dark skies at night, astronomy might be a business opportunity. A cleared area unobstructed by hills or other natural features makes an ideal star gazing site. “Wildlife photography is becoming very popular,” says Plante. “Requirements are blinds for the photographers near feeding areas and wildlife populations. Other targets for photographers can include wildflowers, healthy grasses, butterflies and insects. Aquatic bird viewing and photography can be facilitated with a shaded observation area overlooking a pond.” Expectations of mountain bikers are described on a web page posted by X Bar Ranch Nature Retreat. It says: “X Bar Ranch offers riders of all levels 16 miles of trails in the middle of westcentral Texas ranch country on both single track (85%) and jeep roads. The trails twist and turn through two dry river valleys, mesquite flats and cedar/oak-covered hills. Even with our fair share of rocks, these trails are fast and furious.”

Regardless of the type of wildlife based recreation business you choose, it can be started with the basic requirements. Amenities such as dinning, lodging, swimming and games can be added as the business gains momentum. Hunting ranches with lodges and other entertainment facilities often add fishing and nature tourism to their offerings to make better use of their capital investment. To be successful, the wildlife based recreation business has to match the natural resources on the property. In addition to the organizations mentioned, help in establishing wildlife based recreation business can be obtained from Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, United States Department of Agricultural Natural Resources Conservation Service (USDANRCS) and private consultants.

Heading into the fall, Texas land markets continued to thrive, posting strong price increases overall. Observers continued to see strong demand for small, highly improved properties and even an uptick in demand for larger recreational tracts in some markets. Developments in cropland markets got lost in the cascade of activity. Reflecting escalating commodity prices, cropland began a sustained and unprecedented rise win 2008 that coincided with increasing commodity prices. This unprecedented run-up in prices left livestock producers

scrambling to meet increasing feed costs, but filled the farmers’ pockets with ready cash. Land prices in Region 1 of Texas, the region most heavily influenced by cropland markets, reflected those climbing commodity prices with land prices that soared 56 percent between 2010 and 2013. Brokers found a steady stream of eager investment-driven buyers with few owners being willing to sell. Grassland retiring from the Conservation Reserve Program was converted back to farmland on a broad scale. Asking prices could seemingly never be too high. The almost frenzied buying seen in the Midwestern breadbasket of the country moved into Texas as well.

Corn Prices - Historic and Projected

However agricultural marketing experts have begun to anticipate supply responses that threaten the boom in commodity prices. In the third quarter of 2013, increasing supplies took a toll on commodity prices as evidenced by moderating corn prices. Experts project an annual price in 2013 well below the 2012 record and forecast moderated prices over the next four years. Faced with these expectations, demand for farmland has moderated of late. However that does not mean cropland markets have retreated. Current reports indicate that buyers still have an appetite for good cropland. However, they are more acutely focused on net operating income than they have been in the past several years. Will cropland be the driver of land markets in the future or will the markets return to a primary focus on the recreational retreats that have dominated land transactions in the past? Only time will tell.
