With its combination of rugged South Texas brush and grassland savannahs, the Rancho Estrella, located 42 miles southwest of Hebbronville, is like two ranches in one. Encompassing approximately 8,050 acres in Jim Hogg and Starr counties, the ranch provides incredible hunting and superlative privacy for its owners and their guests. The Rancho Estrella is divided into four pastures: the Brush Pasture, the Front Safari Pasture, the Back Safari Pasture and the House Pasture. The exterior and interior fences are high to facilitate wildlife management. Miles of all-weather and quick-drying ranch roads provide easy access. Managed for wildlife for almost three decades, the Rancho Estrella is home to white-tailed deer, bobwhite and scaled quail, Rio Grande turkeys, javelina, dove and feral hogs. While quail hunting occurs regularly on the ranch, the native population has been supplemented with pen-raised birds to keep the numbers stable. In addition to healthy populations of native game, the ranch has a full complement of desirable exotics: sable antelope, scimitar-horned oryx, axis and zebras. The well-managed brush country habitat is supplemented with protein feeders as well as winter and summer food plots. The ranch has 24 protein feeders ranging in capacity from 1,000 to 2,500 pounds as well as 18 quail feeders. To facilitate hunting, there are 30 Atascosa deer blinds and 30 1,000 pound corn feeders strategically located throughout. In addition to wildlife, the ranch is well-suited for cattle. The new owners can choose to run their own herds or lease out the grazing for an additional income stream. There are two sets of cattle pens: one on the Brush Pasture and a newly constructed set that can be accessed from the remaining three pastures. Water for wildlife and livestock are plentiful. The Rancho Estrella has nine water wells; two of which are run on solar pumps and the remainder on electric submersible pumps. There are also four stock tanks, three of which are supplemented by water from the wells. The other relies on rainwater. Plus, there are more than 30 wildlife waterers scattered throughout the property. Rancho Estrella is designed to entertain large numbers of family, friends, colleagues or clients, providing opportunities for both camaraderie and privacy. The scope and scale of the facilities can handle special events. For instance, the focal point of one of the dining rooms is a 24-foot mesquite table. There are two separate compounds to house guests, one in the Brush Pasture and one in the House Pasture. At each location, there is a combination of a main lodge as well as apartments and casitas. The smaller quarters offer partial kitchens and private baths. The Brush Pasture Compound, which reflects the style and tradition of South Texas, also has a swimming pool and a series of common areas designed to bring people together. There is a master plan in place outlining potential expansion of the House Pasture. The owners home is located at the Brush Pasture compound. It is a four-bedroom, four-bath house with half baths attached to the kitchen and family room. While it is central to the compounds design, the owners home includes a separate wing where the family can gather privately. There are two modular homes for staff. The ranchs infrastructure is also designed to support ranch work and entertaining. For instance, there is a 10 x 25 walk-in cooler for storing game and kennels for housing the ranchs bird dogs. Guests can enjoy shooting skeet from both a high and low-house. A watch tower near the owners home provides a view of Mexicos Sierra Madre Mountains. The ranch has been both a hunting destination and a corporate retreat. If the new owner chooses, Rancho Estrella could easily be transformed into a commercial hunting operation. Brush country. Grassland savannahs. Camaraderie. Privacy. Rancho Estrella is provides an opportunity for the best of all worlds.

In an era of micro ranches, condominiums and virtual reality, Juniper Mountain Ranch in northwest Colorado is a refreshing throwback to the authentic West. The vistas are unspoiled and mule deer vastly outnumber tourists. Not far from here, Butch Cassidy and his gang once found refuge from the law, and today Juniper Mountain Ranch is a refuge from the pressure cooker of the twenty-first century. Juniper Mountain Ranch occupies the heart of untamed northwest Colorado, only a few miles from the ranching hamlet of Maybell. At 6,972.40± deeded acres, it’s an impressive spread that covers rolling hills of pinon/juniper woodlands and sagebrush bottomlands at elevations of 6,100 to 6,800 feet, surrounding the local landmark of 7,847-foot Juniper Mountain. With an attendant State lease and a 5,800-acre BLM grazing permit, over 20 square miles of territory fall under its domain. For years it has been productive grazing ground for 800 animal units, comprised of both cattle and sheep. Located in Game Management Unit 211, Juniper Mountain Ranch has proven itself to be a hotspot for both deer and elk hunters for decades. Historically the ranch has generated 8 mule deer and 8 antelope tags annually. Hunters on the ranch will find that animals of both these species, plus elk, congregate to escape hunting pressure on nearby public lands, finding refuge in the extensive woodlands and draws of Juniper Mountain Ranch. The hunting possibilities of this property have barely been touched, and the addition of a hunting lodge/outfitting business would be a natural fit. Juniper Mountain Ranch is easily accessible from US Highway 40 and thus not far from some of the West’s most spectacular recreational opportunities. The resort town of Steamboat Springs is less than 90 minutes to the east, offering world-class downhill skiing. Dinosaur National Monument, with its incredible fossil beds and spectacular sandstone canyons, lies only 45 minutes to the west. The Yampa River flows just north of the ranch, featuring renowned whitewater rafting and some of the best smallmouth bass fishing in the state. For those captivated by the West’s rich heritage of ranching and hunting, Juniper Mountain Ranch is as made to order as a custom saddle. We at M4 Ranch Group are impressed by places that still speak of the Authentic West, and if that runs in your soul, too, we’d love to share more of the incomparable possibilities of Juniper Mountain Ranch.

BIGHORN MOUNTAIN RANCHThe Bighorn Mountain Ranch is an excellent piece of high country heaven with excellent views, wildlife and privacy. This 6,713 +/- acre mountain ranch consists of excellent cabins and lodges, rolling grass-covered hills and meadows that are cut by deep tree-covered canyons and game filled bluffs. The vast ranch is completely surrounded by BLM and National Forest lands of Bighorn Mountain Range, which typically gives public access into sensitive areas of ranches. However, this is not the case on this offering. In fact, the deeded land protects and controls most access to all of approximately 30,000 acres. With control of so many acres, this ranch definitely lives BIG!Started by the Flitner family in 1906 on a homestead known as Cow Camp, the Bighorn Mountain Ranch has grown over the last 100 years, adding surrounding acreage and encompassing over 20 square miles. Decades full of cattle drives, wildlife management efforts, new construction, recreational memories and hundreds of untold stories lie within the boundaries of this ranch. Now, for the first time, this legacy property is on the market.This ranch location, just 80 miles from Sheridan and 80 miles from Cody, gives the property access to the outside world. Locally, the town of Greybull offers all services and a good 7,000 foot runway at the local airport. For the air enthusiast and possibly the pilot, the current owner has installed two heated helicopter pads for year around access at the ranch, which is just a short 10-minute flight via helicopter from Greybull. Shell, Wyoming is just below the ranch, and it offers some services and basic provisions as well. Known for the abundance of fossil shells located in the area, nearby exposed formations such as theCloverly Formationand theMorrison Formationhave yielded numerous fossils ofdinosaursand other animals.LAND AND CATTLEThe terrain is what makes Bighorn Mountain Ranch so special. Rolling hillsides covered with excellent grass for both stock and wildlife make the bedding areas in the canyons and the trees even better. The owners are some of the best land stewards, and their efforts and management of this land has established grazing capacity for livestock and elk to an all time high. It is estimated that around 3,500 elk travel this region, and between 1,500 and 2,000 elk use the ranch and its adjoining public land frequently. The current owners graze cattle in the summer months on the neighboring public land leases. Bighorn Mountain Ranch is offered with BLM leases and a current cattle lease in place with a local rancher. The land and wildlife management from the current owners include, but are not limited to the following: light intensity grazing, moving cattle out of elk areas prior to season, development of a world class water system with pipes and tanks, and the building and upkeep of excellent improvements.WATER AND FISHINGWhite Creek runs through the ranch, offering excellent small trout fishing with beautiful Brook Trout. Shell Creek on the northern border of the ranch is accessed at the ranch entry and offers trophy trout fishing on public land. This area of Wyoming is home to some of the best brown and rainbow trout fishing anywhere. The property's water system that Mr. David Flitner developed and engineered on the ranch is unlike any I have seen. Starting from an adjudicated spring, with over 20 miles of buried pipe and numerous ponds, the ranch's water system has a great amount of infrastructure and allows for delivery of water to pastures and areas on the ranch as needed. It also provides for several tanks and good wildlife water and has greatly increased the overall capacity on the property for both wildlife and cattle. You will have to see it to believe it, it is truly an excellent and critical resource.HUNTING AND WILDLIFEAmong other species, elk hunting is incredible on this variable terrain property. The current owners lease the hunting to a professional outfitter and the emphasis on this hunting is for management and quality. They pay a great amount of respect to how it is hunted to ensure the animals "feel safe". Our team witnessed this while on the ranch the past couple of visits. We were able to see and enjoy one bachelor group of bulls in full velvet of approximately 50 bulls. The hunting method and the terrain suits many hunting abilities as they set up and wait for the animals to come out in the morning and evening from the dense bedding cover of the tree filled canyons.

The very well constructed log home overlooks a nice pond and over 100 miles of endless views and the deep canyon carrying White Creek. The improvements at Bald Ridge consist of a 5-bedroom, 4-bath log home with commercial kitchen, dining room, relaxing living area, wrap-around deck, large wood burning fireplace and beautiful setting. Next door to the lodge is a the cookhouse cabin which has an excellent commercial kitchen and a beautiful deck with views, plus sleeping quarters for two. There is also an outdoor cooking area with a great firepit and grills. The property also has three cabins that sleep 4-6 with full baths and good privacy and views. The lodge at Bald Ridge and these other improvements are affectionately called the "Upper Hideout".The Snowshoe Lodge and Cabins is another complete set of great improvements on the ranch with a main lodge and three smaller cabins. The main lodge is a three-bedroom structure with three baths and offers all the amenities of home. A very well appointed home with a custom kitchen and excellent appliances and great room with dining area lead out onto a view of the forest and a beautiful valley. The three-story log structure includes wet bar in the basement and excellent bedrooms and baths. Adjoining the lodge on the lower level is a walk-in sauna for guests to enjoy year around. The three other small log cabins sleep 2-4 and are very well equipped with baths and small kitchen areas. The Snowshoe Lodge and cabin area also has an excellent garage for auto and ATV storage, along with a walk-in cooler for big game care after harvesting an animal. This set of facilities is "just right" in the wild of Wyoming. Power and luxury with peace and solitude!And last but not least for improvements is the "Cow Camp" cabin, a quintessential Wyoming homestead that is dripping with the history of this great family. David Flitner tells stories of his grandfather and father and hired hands utilizing this early 1900's restored cabin. David shared some of his first memories of childhood from Cow Camp, leaving me jealous and ripe with envy. Situated on a south-facing slope, the cabin includes a piped-in spring fed water source, a fenced corral and pens used for horses and cattle. The cabin has power ran to it and has been restored for all weather use. (They are even building a new outhouse!) It is just something you have to see to believe!Writing about this property is difficult because of the depth and history involved in this family and this area. We are looking for someone who is passionate about the land and the wildlife that wants to begin this ranches next "generation" of stewards. I am proud to represent such a fine ranch and a fine family and hope that the next owners will love it for another 100 years. Give me a call for a private showing of this excellent opportunity.There is also an additional 440 acres available within 2.5 miles Southwest of the ranch called Grisham Ranch.

Dos Lomas Ranch is located between Ft. Stockton and Ozona fronting for over 5 miles on the north side of Interstate 10 and its frontage road at Exit 314 just 10 miles as the crow flies south west of Iraan. San Antonio is just 3.5 hours to the east making this an excellent weekend recreation ranch. Acreage 6,004 +/- Acres in Pecos County The name of the ranch comes from two high limestone mountain tops that dominate the views from around the ranch. Broad tops with big valleys creates a combination of easy accessible gentle land with deeper soil and the limestone bluffs, rim country, steep hills, and canyon heads creating a diversity of habitats and landforms. This is a working ranch with exceptional hunting. It’s also loaded with canyons, mountains, caves, and excellent vegetation cover making this a hiker and explorers dream. It has been well managed for decades and is known for its combination of native grass, shrubs, and trees. A combination of three large pastures and two traps with pens and extensive water infrastructure complete this working ranch. Some call this “divide country” as the ranch has tremendous topography with a road infrastructure that allows easy access up on top and across the entire ranch. Flay grassy mesa tops with a natural Playa Lake or “Buffalo Wallow” contrast with the rim rock canyons, broad valleys, wooded steep limestone bluffs. This is Western Edwards Plateau transitioning into the Chihuahuan Deseret a convergence of two biologically-distinct eco-regions in Texas. Dos Lomas is the perfect combination of topography, vegetation, accessibility, scenery, history and romance. The Headquarters is simple but functional with a foreman’s house and owner/hunter camp house. The old historic house burned many years ago but there is an excellent location to build a new owners lodge. There are some outbuildings, barns and pens located at the Headquarters. The owners have worked for decades with the NRCS in cost share programs to improve rangeland and building new fences within the ranch. From yucca and sotol, to hackberry and mesquite woodlands, to persimmon and juniper, the ranch represents a crossroads of diverse habitats. The property’s browse and grasslands are in great condition, a result of responsible grazing methods. Native grasses, forbs, browse, brush, cacti and trees not only provide excellent habitat for gamespecies such as deer, turkey, quail, and dove, but also for non-game species such as Texas horned lizard, neotropical songbirds, fox, ringtail cat, and many other animals.Mule deer, and whitetail deer populations on the Ranch are great. The population is about 50/50 for the two deer types and, within the steep terrain along the canyons, one can also find Aoudad sheep. Wing shooting opportunities for blue quail and mourning dove are tremendous. The ranch has a MLD Level II permit and has been carefully managed over the decades by responsible hunters. The ranch is divided into upper mesa land and lower valley/canyon land. There are 3 wells below the rim with one being a windmill and the other two being submersible with electricity. The submersible in West Pasture is pumped up the rim and supplies water on top. There is also a Windmill on top in the East Pasture. The water is shallow, accessible, prolific, and is high quality, being part of the Edwards-Trinity or Plateau Aquifer. The three wells below the rim are 300 feet in depth with water at 120 feet and the one windmill on top is 600 feet deep. Storage tanks and troughs distribute water around each pasture and at the Headquarters. One water through on top near the pens is supplied by a neighbor’s well. This ranch is adjacent to the Yates Field one of the most prolific Oil Fields in the World which has produced over one Billion Barrels of Oil. There are no active wells or leases on the Dos Lomas Ranch. There are three Mineral Classified Sections and the Sellers will convey 10% of fee minerals owned. The fee minerals conveyed will allow any future surface owner to provide for Surface Protection provisions in any new Lease. There is a 137 KV Transmission Line across the west end of the ranch from the Interstate up and out the top of the ranch. The owners have had interest from both Solar and Wind developers in the past. They will convey all Solar and Wind rights.
