Located in South Texas' famed Golden Triangle, the North Ranch encompasses 10,687± acres of top-notch wildlife habitat and includes almost 6 miles of the Nueces River. The turnkey property, situated 5 miles north of La Pryor and 15 miles south of Uvalde in Zavala County, is one of the finest hunting ranches available today. Over the past seven years, the current owner acquired six properties and formed the North Ranch. The ranch, which fronts on FM 1436, has been designed to be best in class. The North Ranch is home to exceptional white-tailed deer and some of the best bird hunting—Bobwhite quail, dove and Rio Grande turkeys—in the state. Since 2017, deer have been managed under an MLDP-3, but the hunting has been limited. In the past three years, mature whitetails measuring 160" — 190" have been harvested. In addition, the ranch boasts oryx, axis deer, feral hogs and a host of non-game species. The Land and the Water Towering pecans, Mexican sycamore and oaks stand sentry along the river, while guajillo, black brush, white brush, mesquite, guayacan and other protein-rich brush species inhabit the uplands. The land has been strategically cleared and roller chopped to increase edge and plant diversity. Native grasses have been replanted where suitable. The Nueces is pocked with deep, blue holes that hold water for swimming and fishing even in drought. The North Ranch possesses water rights from the Nueces. In addition to the river, the North Ranch has approximately 1.5 miles of surface water, measuring about one-quarter mile wide. More than 7.5 miles of 2-inch poly water line and an additional 7.5 miles of 4-inch poly water line have been laid and buried. The water distribution system also includes eight (8-feet in diameter) cement water troughs and two (20-feet in diameter) cement water troughs; all are encircled by 8-foot cement skirts. There are four irrigation wells (one = 120 gal./min.; one = 300 gal./min.; two = 110 gal./min.) The irrigation wells are used, in part, to supply a 40-acre Reinke pivot and a 36-acre Reinke pivot. The ranch has two domestic solar wells, six domestic electric submersible wells and another domestic well (60 gal./min.) connected to a 60,000-gallon storage tank that supplies the headquarters. The Living Thanks to the attention to detail, living is comfortable and easy.

The River House sits near the Nueces. Currently used as storage, it could be upgraded to living quarters. The ranch's focal point is the 11,600± square foot Barndominium. The front one-third is living space, while the remaining two-thirds provides storage. The living space includes a commercial kitchen with an attached utility area, a dining area, living room and bathroom. In addition, the Barndominium has four bedrooms each with a private bath.

Kimball Mountain Ranch is a 10,282± deeded acre mountain property located in the mesa country of western Colorado. This distinct holding is a contiguous block of unimproved land running nearly seven and a half miles in length and controlling nearly the entirety of Kimball Mountain. The ranch features a diverse blend of topography including lower valley benches with massive canyon walls and secluded timber valleys that rise to a long mesa bisected by a series of open parks and rolling ridges. While views of the property itself are striking, the countless vistas from the top are dramatic – one can gaze down upon valley floors and across to surrounding canyons and mountaintops. Kimball Mountain sits between two of western Colorado’s most notable hunting ranches and is home to trophy mule deer and elk, as well as healthy populations of Merriam’s turkey, grouse, and black bear. The diverse habitat also insures healthy populations of raptors, songbirds, and a host of other wildlife. As a result of the unfortunate 2020 Pine Gulch Fire, portions of the acreage including the steep north slope were burned while others remained relatively untouched. Ownership took immediate action to protect the property through mitigation efforts including aerial seeding. This proactive approach resulted in diversified forage composition, good regrowth of forbs and grasses, curbed woody shrub encroachment, increased carbon sequestration, and improved hydrology. In short, Kimball Mountain and its wildlife have responded favorably to the burn and subsequent remediation. The pricing model incorporates the impacts of the fire and provides the opportunity to acquire a significant land holding at an attractive price point. Kimball Mountain Ranch is ideal for those seeking an investment opportunity with strong recreational benefits. Kimball Mountain Ranch is located in western Garfield County between the town of Rifle and the city of Grand Junction. Year-round access is provided by a paved and maintained county road just 13 miles north of Interstate Highway 70 and the historic ranching community of De Beque. Driving time to Grand Junction and the Grand Junction Regional Airport and FBO is an hour. The town of Rifle and the Rifle FBO is a 45-minute drive from the ranch. Vail, Beaver Creek, and Aspen are all within two hours of the ranch, with Denver about three and a half hours to the east.
