Habitat & Wildlife: Predominantly open prairie with a rice rotation, typically there are three to four areas ranging from 5 to 20 acres holding shallow flood during the migratory season, along with a few wet prairie potholes providing additional habitat and hunting opportunities. Rice is on a two-year rotation, with approximately 100 acres planted one year, and 200 acres the next. The farm features two areas of dense brush consisting mostly of regrowth pine, sweetgum, myrtle, and yaupon, with a handful of scattered larger hardwoods and pines. These areas total approximately 180 acres, providing habitat for the deer, hogs, and other varmints that are common on the upper prairie. This farm has produced some nice bucks! Dove hunting can be very good, with several-acre food plots of milo and sunflowers planted. The majority of the soils on this farm are clay or loamy clay. Per USDA data, roughly 56% of the acreage consists of League Clay (classified as prime farmland by USDA). As is common in this area, a large portion of the property is within the 100-year flood plain. However, there are approximately 300 acres that are not in FEMA designated flood plain, including several acres near the front of the property, making that area favorable for barn or camp location. USDA: The property is PLC payment eligible, and has 21.1 acres of rice base and 90.5 acres of soybean base. Water: Rice is irrigated off the West Devers Canal System, part of the LNVA. Minerals: Surface only. History: This farm is a part of the historic Boyt Ranch, which traces its history back to when E.W. Boyt arrived here at the age of 15 from Mississippi on a cattle drive and never left. In 1904 he bought his first piece of land and continued to grow it until it reached from Devers south to the coast.

Located less than 20 miles south of Falfurrias off of Hwy 281 lies the Glick Ranch, a terrific “sand sheet” ranch that has great quail and deer hunting, fantastic groundwater, infrastructure for cattle operations and fine accommodations. This high fenced property also comes with an exotics pasture, two pivot locations (one pivot) and water distribution system all over the property. Location: The ranch is located eighteen miles south of Falfurrias at the dead end of County Road 304 just west of Encino. The west side of the property has .7 miles of frontage on County Road 309. The Brooks County Airport is less than 23 miles from the ranch entrance. Topography and Habitat: The Glick Ranch is located in the South Texas Plains ecosystem in the middle of the sand sheet and is primarily grasslands with mixed brush, mesquites and oaks. The ranch is almost entirely made up of Nueces fine sand and Sarita fine sand complexes. This fine sandy soil is famous for creating what is likely the best bobwhite quail habitat in the entire country and the forbs produced in this country not only develop excellent seed banks for quail but also produce spectacular flowers in the spring. There is a combination of live oak and mesquites found throughout the ranch with majestic oaks dominating portions of the ranch creating beautiful scenery and excellent turkey roosts. Portions of the ranch have thicker brush creating great deer habitat, while other portions of the property are more open Mott country excellent for running dogs for quail. Besides the oaks and mesquites, other brush species on the ranch include hog plum, guayacan, acacias and black brush. All creating excellent cover and food sources for the native wildlife. The majority of the property has tall native prairie grasses including primarily bluestems and paspalums. In and around the pivots there is primarily coastal bermuda grass. Good clay can be found beneath the sand sheet for creating lakes and ponds. Wildlife: The deer hunting on this high fenced ranch is fantastic with a carefully managed deer herd that allows excellent aging of trophy deer and manages a 1.5 to 1 doe to buck ratio. Multiple large bucks were observed by us during visits to the ranch and 170’s deer are annually taken from the property. The deer are well managed to create these trophies and prove the native genetics. The ranch is located in the heart of some of the best quail country in the U.S.. The naturally motted portions of the property create excellent habitat for quail with about half the property open enough to run quail rigs and dogs. Some thicker brush portions of the ranch have been sprayed to kill mesquite and will be available for creating even more quail country by running a fire through those portions. Turkey are abundant on the ranch. There are many huge live oaks all over the ranch which provide excellent roosting cover necessary for these majestic birds. The dove hunting here is superb with most hunting taking place at the multiple small ponds located around the ranch. The existing pivots used for growing Bermuda grass now could easily be put into growing dove fields to further enhance the dove hunting. There is a 1,000-acre high fenced pasture within the ranch that currently holds multiple exotics and whitetails. These exotics can either be purchased by the Buyer or be removed prior to finalizing the sale. Several of the lakes on the property have catfish and bass stocked for fishing. Water: There are two irrigation wells located on the property run by direct drives. The main irrigation well produces over 900 gpm and is used primarily to run the pivot system (one 1,200’ string) used on two pivot fields that make up approximately 240 acres under pivot total. The second irrigation well produces over 300 gpm and is currently not in use. Four more water wells are placed around the ranch and water lines are run throughout the ranch to both ponds and watering stations. There are also several unused drilled wells that could be put into production including a large diameter borehole that could be put into a third irrigation well. Ground water here is plentiful and most wells are 350’ to 500’ deep. There are currently six ponds located around the ranch with four of them having water added by water lines. Improvements: There is a housing compound that is anchored by a lodge with combination dining room/den/kitchen centrally located and six rooms accessed outside of lodge along a covered porch on the back. Each room has its own bathroom. The lodge has a covered bbq pit behind it overlooking a small lake with fish and a fire pit. Also in the compound are three nice mobile homes that are well done for more sleeping areas and a cooler/storage area. Closer to the entrance is the managers home, and there are several barns and cattle catch pens around the property. There is extensive interior fencing for rotating cattle, and two high fenced food plot areas on the ranch with access to water. Other: No minerals are available with the sale of the property. There are two electric lines that run into the property. The property currently runs its own cattle operation. The cattle could be purchased separately to stay on the ranch or removed depending on the wishes of the Buyer.

The surrounding properties are primarily large wooded tracts and no other structures are visible off of the property. Across the Neches river, the land is all part of thousands of acres of the Big Thicket National Preserve. A unique feature of this ranch is that during the winter, much of the property is surrounded by water among the cypress trees as it winds it way throughout the area. During the summer months, the water recedes and the understory becomes a beautiful grassland which is mowed and maintained. Approximately 180 acres of the ranch has had most of the understory removed to create a park like setting with large trees and good grasses. The northern half of the ranch has remained relatively untouched and is dominated by pines and thicker brush creating a privacy boundary and refuge for wildlife. Wildlife: White-tailed deer are abundant on the property and during the winter months, it is a haven for migrating ducks finding refuge amongst the flooded timber.

Running through the middle of the property is Little Black Creek forming the environment for the hundreds of large cypress trees on the property. The bridge running over the creek to access the lodge was engineered to create another lovely lake that contains catfish and crappie. A four acre trophy bass lake on the property includes a fishing dock, boat ramp and has been stocked with Coppernose Bluegill, Redear Sunfish and a mixture of pure strain Florida bass and F-1 hybrids. A 250’ deep water well provides all of the water for the irrigation and keeping the bass lake full. A smaller well is utilized for the homes. Electricity: Electric service is conveniently located on the property with many of the lines buried to retain the open feel of the ranch. History: Bear Mans Bluff is a known high point along the Neches River that was originally settled before the Civil War and was utilized as a harbor for trade with boats moving up and down the river. Steamboats would dock at the bluff to exchange fuel wood for various sundries and goods from traders who travelled the Old Spanish trail which crossed the river nearby. During the Civil War, the property was known to harbor mystery men who kept hidden but commonly left out bear meat for the steamboat captains who would leave bread, bacon and other staples. These men became known as the “bear men” and ultimately the area became Bear Mans Bluff. In the early 20th century, the property was used as a ferry point to cross the river and was a busy port until it was later moved further downstream. Afterwards it became a recreational property known for its high point off of the river and several old lodges were built for entertaining many guests.

Huge development potential combined with exceptional duck hunting and saltwater fishing situated less than 90 miles from Houston’s Galleria are the key components of this extraordinary property. Sargent Beach on the Gulf of Mexico is a few minutes’ drive away, or boat out of Caney Creek to East Matagorda Bay and/or the surf off Matagorda Peninsula on calm days to chase trout and redfish. This tremendous opportunity exists within a short drive from the fourth largest city in the country and the 7.1-million-person Houston MSA, the second fastest growing MSA in the country. Location: The ranch is located immediately across Caney Creek from the town of Sargent, approximately 2 miles west of FM 457 with blacktop access to the gate. Habitat: The land of Carancahua Bend Ranch transitions from higher coastal grassland prairie on the northern end of the ranch into more saltmarsh acreage that is tidally influenced in the central portion of the ranch, and finally into the tidal flats that make up the southwesternmost portion of the property. Although generally flat prairie, a naturally occurring higher ridgeline follows the west bank of Caney Creek, which forms the east border of the ranch for approximately 3.9 miles (+20,500 linear feet). On the opposite bank lies the town of Sargent, lined with river homes. The southernmost border runs approximately 1.5 miles along the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway and the northeast end of East Matagorda Bay. Surface water on the ranch varies from sweet water “sennabean” ponds on the northern end to the brackish potholes and saltwater flats to the south. One major water feature is a +55-acre horseshoe lake tidally fed by Caney Creek. Mesquite, cedar elm, and hackberry are the predominant trees along the creekbank and on the higher ridges. A +15-acre mott of mixed hardwoods and mesquite contains trophy live oaks, and would make a fantastic park amenity for a community. Wildlife: A ranch with a diverse waterfowl habitat and proximity to the big waters of the bay produces excellent duck hunting. Everything a duck needs is here—food, water, and rest areas! Bluewings, greenwings, gadwall, widgeon, pintail, and canvasbacks call this area their winter home, along with an assortment of divers. Thousands of acres of undeveloped, large-ranch coastal marsh and prairie surround the Carancahua Bend Ranch. The 54,000-acre San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge lies approximately a mile to east of this ranch, providing long term habitat for the waterfowl and other migratory birds that frequent the area. The 4,500-acre Big Boggy National Wildlife Refuge is a little over 5 miles down the ICW to the west. East Matagorda Bay has a long and well-deserved reputation for producing some huge speckled trout for serious waders, not to mention plenty of redfish and flounder. Nighttime fishing under the lights on the creek can be incredible! Better pack a fishing rod along with your decoys when the tides are big. Deer, hogs, alligators and varmints also make this ranch their home. Livestock: This is a working cattle ranch, complete with everything it takes to raise beef in this part of the world. Fencing, dispersed water wells and troughs, loafing sheds and a top-notch set of pens are all present. This ranch is primarily utilized as late fall through early summer pasture. Predominant forage is saltgrass and sachahuista, which has been well managed via periodic controlled burns. Typically the ranch will support approximately 700 head on this seasonal grazing basis. *Approximately 225 acres are under the same fence with the owned property, but leased from third parties (see aerial and ask brokers for details). Water: Water for livestock is shallow, coming from the Gulf Coast Aquifer. Six water wells and associated troughs are spread across the ranch. Electricity & Fiber: Electricity runs a short distance onto the ranch from the adjacent subdivision and currently terminates at the pens. Fiber is located at the ranch entrance. Minerals: There is no active production or leases on the ranch. Per Railroad Commission maps, there is only one pipeline impacting the ranch, located at the extreme northwest fence line. A portion of the owner’s minerals may be available with an acceptable offer. History: The majority of this ranch has been under the same family ownership for over 100 years, with a few additions over the years. Since 1917, W.D. Cornelius and descendants have run cattle on this unique piece of land that is still a part of their ranching operation. The evolution of the area has provided the opportunity for a new owner to transition this property to a more valuable use, but over a century of ranching history will remain, and likely continue, over much of this acreage.
