The St. Jude Ranch is an excellent all-around ranch on the western edge of the South Texas sand sheet. This ranch is known for trophy native deer, dove and quail hunting. The ranch is blessed with ample groundwater including several water wells and water troughs. The property is fenced and cross-fenced, offering the opportunity to incorporate cattle grazing as a part of a new owner’s land management program. LOCATION Located in far southeastern Webb County, the ranch fronts FM 649 just under 8 miles south of Mirando City. The Jim Hogg County Airport and town of Hebbronville are both under 30 miles away. Laredo and the Laredo International Airport are approximately 40 miles from the gate. TOPOGRAPHY, RANGELAND & HABITAT The topography on the ranch is gently rolling with elevations from 860 – 890’. Vegetation features prime South Texas browse, along with a mix of buffel and native grasses for prime quail habitat. Water is distributed well across the ranch, both in troughs and well-fed small surface tanks. The red soils in this area are generally light sandy/sandy loams, with the majority of soils on this ranch consisting of Cuevitas-Randado and Delmita-Randado Complexes. This is a very dog-friendly ranch, possessing ample maintained strips throughout the ranch for easy access quail hunting. WILDLIFE The ranch is low fenced on two sides, and has regularly produced trophy, native South Texas deer. Bobwhite quail flourish in this area with the cooperation of the weather, and the dove hunting is often fantastic, particularly in mid-season when temperatures cool off some and again in the late season around Christmas. Coyotes, bobcats, javelina and hogs can also be found on the ranch. The ranch has been responsibly hunted and managed by friends and family for many years.
