Location: This ranch is located only 1.5 hours south of Houston, 9 miles NW of Edna in Jackson County, TX. The ranch has 1/2 mile frontage on County Road 128. This County Road is an all-weather gravel road, is county maintained, and dead ends 1/4 mile after the property, very private.
Vegetation: The ranch is covered in hundreds of beautiful, huge live oaks, giving some parts of the ranch a park-like appearance. There are also many big pecan and elm trees along the Chicolete Creek. The native brush is typical of the Texas coastal plains, including post oaks and yaupon.
Terrain: The terrain is extremely diverse, ranging from bottomlands to gently rolling hills. The Chicolete Creek, a year-round, spring-fed creek, traverses through the ranch for 2 miles, providing excellent habitat for wildlife in the bottoms. The ranch primarily has sandy loam soils throughout, with darker soils in the lower areas.
Wildlife: This ranch has been intensely managed exclusively for wildlife for the past 7 years. Approximately 150 whitetail deer out of 200+ Bonne & Crockett genetics have been released to supplement the native deer herd. In the winter months, this area is home to incredible numbers of ducks, geese, and sandhill cranes. There are large numbers of turkey that roost along the Chicolete Creek and other timber lined drainages on this ranch. Last year, a gobbler was killed that had an 11.5 inch beard. The owner has conducted controlled burns every winter for the past 7 years, increasing the native grasses and forbes. Annual predator control is also part of the wildlife management plan. The ranch currently holds a level III MLD.
Water: There is approximately 2 miles of year-round, spring-fed Chicolete Creek frontage on both sides. It is lined with big sycamore, pecan, cottonwood, elm, and hackberry trees. There is one water well, equipped with an electric submersible pump. The ranch lies over one of the most prolific aquifers in Texas, and neighboring ranches have irrigation wells that produce 2,000 GPM or more.
Minerals: No minerals to convey, and there is no production on the ranch.
Improvements: There is a small hunter’s camp consisting of 2 travel trailers that can sleep about 10 people. The interior and perimeter roads have been highly improved, allowing all parts of the ranch to be accessed. Electricity has been brought into the ranch overhead, and is run underground to several home sites on the ranch. This ranch is completely high fenced with 8 foot tight-lock galvanized fencing. There are several hunting blinds and feeders that will convey. There is some interior cross fencing.
Price: $3,500/acre. Cash at closing.
