Seco Creek Ranch

Hondo TX | Medina County

Seco Creek Ranch is a 1,557± acre premier hunting ranch for sale in Medina County, Texas. This is a turn-key recreational, hunting, or cattle ranch with multiple improvements, abundant wildlife, and ample water. The main ranch entrance is from FM 2200, 10 miles south of D’Hanis, 20 miles from I-35, and about an hour from San Antonio.

The topography of this ranch varies from steep to rolling, with good soils supporting an extraordinary variety of high protein brush species and thick improved grasses on the higher elevations, to the expansive clays which support the hardwoods and water-tolerant conifers. The ranch is 60% native brush, 20% pastures, and 20% farmland. There are four water wells on the ranch including an Edwards well and three domestic wells. There are several large food plots and an expansive garden of native flora.

Seco Creek Ranch has three well-maintained lakes of over an acre in size and three ponds producing large bass, catfish, and perch. Several wet weather creeks traverse the ranch including Seco Creek and Little Seco Creek. The Edwards well pipes water to a large earthen reservoir where it then flows by gravity through underground pipes to all the lakes, ponds and water troughs. There are two irrigated 100± acre coastal fields with Valley pivots.

Careful attention to wildlife preservation on this high fenced ranch has created an unparalleled wildlife sanctuary affording nesting and wintering habitat for birds rarely found away from a river. Buntings, Warblers, Orioles, Green Kingfisher, Sandhill Crane, and Tanagers are noted here seasonally. Many species of woodpeckers, vireos, wrens, swallows, sparrows, hawks, owls, and other varieties are seen throughout the year. There are resident swans that nest and live on the lakes of the ranch. Native wildlife and game include whitetail deer, axis deer, blackbuck, dove, quail, and flocks of turkey. Whitetail deer of improved genetics have been released on the ranch and a list of releases is available upon request. The ranch features five hunting blinds, ten corn feeders and fifteen protein feeders scattered throughout the ranch. There are two deer breeding pens on the ranch. A sunflower field attracts countless doves, making for an unbelievable bird hunting season.

An all-weather blacktop road extends from the ranch entrance to the main house, hunting lodge, and throughout the property. The stucco and rock main house consist of five bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living areas, and a kitchen. There is a covered parking area and exterior patios wrapping around two sides of the house. The home is built on an elevated plateau overlooking manicured pastures and pristine countryside. The Western styled hunting lodge, remodeled in 2012, has approximately 5,284 square feet with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is also a foreman’s home with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, a guest house, and several storage out-buildings. There are four metal barns ranging in size from 1,000± to 6,000± square feet.
