Location

This 600 acre ranch is located less than 100 miles Southwest of Houston, 25 miles North of Edna, and 20 miles South of Hallettsville, in Lavaca County, Texas. It is located off of CR 14, and is accessed by a private 60-foot owned, fenced, gravel access road, that will convey fee title with the land.

Vegetation

The ranch is covered in live oaks, post oaks, water oaks, sycamore, and elm trees. The native brush is typical of the Texas coastal plains, including scrub oaks, yaupon, and American beauty brush, among many others.

Terrain

The terrain is relatively flat. The ranch primarily has sandy soils throughout, with darker clay-type soils in the lower areas.  The ranch is heavily wooded except for approximately 180 acres that was once in rice production, but part of it is now converted into an approximately 30 acre waterfowl lake.

Hunting

This is a fantastic combination hunting ranch, with an abundance of whitetail deer, turkey, hogs, dove, ducks, and geese.  The owner has been strictly managing the deer herd and feeding protein for 10 years, and several deer in the 140′s have been killed. In the winter months, the duck hunting is phenomenal on the ranch’s 2 shallow waterfowl lakes.  An array of duck species can be hunted, including:  pintail, gadwall, wigeon, teal, golden eye, spoonbill, bufflehead, red head, mallard, and wood duck.

Water

There are 2 shallow waterfowl lakes, designed by Ducks Unlimited, that are approximately 25-30 acres each.  These lakes could easily be doubled in size, and are filled by the ranch’s irrigation well that produces 1,400 GPM.  The well was drilled and pump installed in 2008. There is 1 other small pond that can be filled with the irrigation well.  There are 2 other water wells that have 4″ casing and are capped.

Minerals

No minerals to convey.  There are 2 producing gas wells on the ranch.  The owner has a strict and comprehensive surface protection agreement with the production company.  A copy can be provided. The production company has taken extreme care to maintain the natural beauty of the ranch. They have also provided a great source of both road construction and maintenance for a minimal presence.
