INTRODUCTION: In the same family for about 100 years, the Double B Ranch is easily one of the best combination livestock and hunting ranches ever offered for sale in Spectacular Southwest Texas. Located in north-central Edwards County, the ranch exhibits some of the most desirable aspects of the western Hill Country, nearby West Texas, and the southern Edwards Plateau. The flat to gently rolling topography allows easy access for livestock and hunters to every part of the ranch, and the cover provides essential browse and protection for White-tail deer, livestock, and other game. HISTORY: Edwards County was created in 1858 out of Bexar County and was finally organized in 1883, with Rocksprings established as the county seat in 1891. Indians raiding out of Mexico during this period were especially troublesome to pioneer settlers as this area was a prime hunting ground teeming with deer, turkey and other game. In the national depression of the 1890s, the prices of wool dropped to 5 per pound and cattle to $12 per head. But ranching by then was well enough established that cattle, sheep and especially Angora goats (which produce Mohair) dominated the economy of the area for the next one hundred years. Rocksprings became the center of the national Mohair Industry and still claims the title The Mohair Capital of the World. Only in recent years has the superabundant White-tail deer populations, along with introduced exotic game, allowed hunting to challenge ranching as the dominant industry. One of the current owners of the ranch is a granddaughter of the ranch pioneers who acquired what is now the Double B in 1925. Other descendants of the family continue to own adjacent and other ranches in Edwards County. Most of the Double Bs neighboring ranches are are still owned by descendants of other early ranch families.
