Location: This 528 acre ranch is located only 1.5 hours south of Houston, in the West corner of Jackson County, only 1/2 mile from the Lavaca County line and the Victoria County line. It is an 18 mile drive to Edna, TX and a 19 mile drive to Victoria, TX. It is accessed via a 1 mile deeded gravel easement from J2 Ranch Drive.
Vegetation: The ranch is heavily wooded, covered in hundreds of beautiful, huge live oaks. There are also many water oak, post oak, pecan, elm, hackberry, and sycamore trees. The native brush is typical of the Texas coastal plains, including yaupon and beauty berry, among many others.
Terrain: The main attraction is the 2 miles of creek traversing through the ranch, forming part of the headwaters for Arenosa Creek which after leaving the ranch becomes the Victoria/Jackson County line. The ranch’s terrain is generally flat, with 20 feet of relief draining to the creek bottom. The soils range from productive clay loam to sandy loam. Some of the ranch along the creek is in the 100 year flood plain. Rainfall for the area averages 44 inches per year.
Hunting: The ranch is an island of thick woods, bordered by thousands of acres of active rice farm and open oak motte country, drawing in lots of wildlife in the area. There is an abundance of native wildlife including white-tail deer, turkey, hogs, dove, ducks, and geese. An array of duck species can be hunted in this area, including: pintail, gadwall, wigeon, teal, golden eye, spoonbill, bufflehead, red head, mallard, and wood duck.
Water: There is one 3.5 acre lake, supplemented with piped water from one of the wells, stocked with catfish and bass.
