Location: 5 miles south of Benjamin, TX Water: 500+/- acre private lake; 10 miles of frontage on the Brazos River; & Over 2.2 miles of sloughs Perhaps the most amazing feature of Lago Grande River Ranch is the massive 500+/- (surveyed) acre lake that is known as Lake Davis to the locals within a several county radius. Wildlife: Lake Davis historically wintered tens of thousands of ducks and geese . You would be hard pressed to talk to a duck and goose guide within a hundred miles who does not know Lake Davis, and if he hasnt had the privilege of hunting close by, he has likely wished he could. It is unnerving to be near the lake in the early morning hours, when the sun is just beginning to rise, and hear the spectacular thunder that 100,000 wings make as they lift off the water and head to the many food sources that can be found within 10 miles in every direction. A local hunting guide, who has hunted the area for more than twenty years, says it is not uncommon on any given morning during the winter months to witness over 100,000 geese depart their Lake Davis roost. To the goose hunter, it is the epicenter of west Texas waterfowl. For the duck hunter, there is unbridled potential to create the finest wetland habitat in all of west Texas. With over 2.2 miles of sloughs , which are fed by the tail-waters of Lake Davis, a future owner could create a series of flooded marshes that would make what a well-respected wildlife consultant (who specializes in wetland habitat design and mitigation services) said could be the best he has ever seen . By just flipping an electric switch during the dryer months, water can be pumped directly out of Lake Davis, through a series of underground irrigation pipes, to flood newly planted fields of attractants such as: Barn Yard Grass, Millet, Smart Weed and other food sources at the exact times when the soil temperatures are ideal for the best chance of attaining higher yields of output. You cannot have a place called Lago Grande without talking about some big fish. A bass in excess of 14 lbs. has been retrieved from the deep waters of Lake Davis, and it is rumored that at one time, the lake was the scene of a state-record Crappie . Anyone who sees this majestic body of water would be hard pressed to think that it would not be possible for a record holder to come out of the deep clear water. Huge Catfish are also the norm and are legendary among the locals. With the southern border of this ranch meandering along approximately 10 miles of frontage on the Brazos River , this property is a wildlife Mecca. Trophy Whitetails find refuge in what one biologist termed as the ideal mix of cover, vegetative browse, and travel corridors. Although the ranch is in the infancy stage of a wildlife management program, it is not uncommon to see 160-170 class Boone & Crockett Whitetails with deer in the 180s harvested. Over 1,300 acres of dry-land wheat fields serve as an all-you-can-eat buffet for the different populations of species that are truly spoiled by this readily-available food source. Wild hogs are numerous and add a 365-day dimension for the avid hunter who likes to get out and chase game all year long. Healthy populations of Rio Grande Turkeys can be found throughout the entire ranch. There is nothing like being on the river in early April to hear the chorus of overzealous gobblers sounding off as dawn breaks in hopes of attracting the most hens to their side of the pasture. Healthy populations of Bob-White quail are also scattered throughout the majority of the ranch. Terrain and Natural Features: Currently, there are well over 1,300 acres of cultivated fields located within the boundaries of Lago Grande River Ranch. A local rancher has planted the main wheat field and is currently grazing the winter wheat crop. Other fields are used for wildlife food plots and are located along the river. Property Summary: Lago Grande River Ranch is truly the only one of its kind! Seldom does a property come up for sale that no matter who you are or where you have been in the world, you just have to stop and say: Wow! Now that is a special place! If you appreciate special places, are an avid outdoorsman or woman, enjoy hunting, fishing, and just being among Gods creations, it does not get any finer than this.

Property is fenced with 2.5 miles of frontage on the Pan-American highway. Rancho Aloe has an extensive 1.5 million dollar irrigation system that uses water pumped from a river through underground 6 inch pipes to cannon & drip systems that irrigate the farm during the dry season. The 4 rivers run year round and the farm has governmental permits to use this water for its foreseeable needs. In the rain season May thru November average total rainfall is 22 inches and is ample water to raise crops. The Costa Rica farm has agricultural equipment tractors, bulldozer,, wagon, trailers,etc adequate for its business operations. Rancho Aloe has a spacious 4800 sq. ft. custom built in 1944 from wood harvested and milled on the property. The ranch house has a swimming pool, 2 guesthouses, 1 office, barn shop and storage buildings. Fuel tanks, water tanks as well as a gated entry with guard building. Rancho Aloe used to maintain a herd of cattle and currently has a small herd of horses. The ranching activity has stopped as the seller is preparing the property for sale. It is estimated that Rancho Aloe can currently carry 1200 head of cattle and other livestock. There are rock formations on Rancho Aloe that provide excellent materials for road maintenance and building. An airstrip has been improved as well. Bagaces is a town in Guanacaste, located off the Panamerican highway. It’s between two of the major nature preserves in Guanacaste, El Rincón and Parque Nacional Palo Verde. Although the town is quite small, it is near some striking natural attractions, making it well worth a visit. These attractions are (for now) off the beaten path, so it’s unlikely you’ll have to compete with crowds. Take a bumpy road to the Bagaces Waterfall (also known as Llanos de Cortés), just a few minutes away from Bagaces by car or bus. This enormous waterfall is 50-feet (15-m) wide. You’ll be asked to make a small donation to the local school as an entrance fee. Bring a swimming suit so you can swim around the clear water near the waterfall. After your swim, sunbathe on the nearby rocks as you take in the roar of the falling water. Río Perdido is Bagace’s number one attraction for adventure travelers. White water rafting is a popular activity here. On the grounds surrounding the river, you’ll find trails that wind through dense forest. There are canyons near the trails that are ripe for an afternoon of exploration. Visitors can bike and hike through the trails, and zip-line through the forest’s canopy. Possble owner financing.

PROPERTY OVERVIEW: Manicured, improved hay pastures roll gently into thick hardwood forests on the Clay Hill Ranch, which, by any measure, is an exceptional property. With nearly 4,800 +/- contiguous deeded acres, this East Texas ranch is uncommonly large for the area and very productive. Approximately 650 cultivated acres have historically produced an average of 9,000 round bales of hay in three cuttings per year without livestock production. The owner has recently implemented a cattle feeding program designed to accommodate an Angus herd consistently grazing in numbers between 500 and 750 head under rotational grazing while maintaining a significant hay crop. Two large live creeks, numerous creek draws, two lakes stocked with fish, and more than 20 stock tanks provide ample water for livestock and wildlife. Managed wetlands attract migrating and resident waterfowl. And then there is the game, large and small, whitetail deer, wild hogs, and doves. It is no wonder that thousands of years ago the Caddo Indian culture flourished here.The improvements on the Clay Hill Ranch are well considered and beautifully maintained. A custom stone ranch house, completed in 2011, has 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths in 5,898 +/- square feet, with adjoining guest quarters for family and friends. Operational facilities include a 10,000-square-foot equipment barn and office, two modular houses for hunting parties, and a manager’s residence. Located a short distance from Interstate 45, the Clay Hill Ranch is less than two hours driving time from Dallas and less than three hours from both Houston and Austin. Location, productive agriculture, beautiful terrain, abundant wildlife, and gracious and practical improvements – the Clay Hill Ranch is all encompassing.LOCATION: Clay Hill Ranch is located 7.5 miles west of Fairfield, Texas in Freestone County. The ranch location provides a convenient drive from Dallas (95 miles north), Houston (150 miles south), and Austin (155 miles southwest).Teague Municipal Airport is located approximately 9 miles southwest of Clay Hill Ranch and offers runway length of approximately 3300 feet.THE LAND: As the story goes, Freestone County, carved from the larger Limestone County in 1850, was named for a type of indigenous stone found here, though the soil is not particularly rocky. Throughout the county, the soils vary from loamy to claypan with a sandy or loamy surface. On the Clay Hill Ranch, Bermuda grasses and strategically planted food plots for wildlife thrive in the sandy loam soil. At least six types of oak trees – red oaks, live oaks, sand oaks, post oaks, pin oaks, and water oaks – grow in dense groves and forests along with ash, blue jack, elm, and black walnut trees. Junipers give cover to wildlife, river birch grow along the creeks, and bursts of white dogwood blossoms herald the arrival of spring. East Texas beauty abounds over every rolling hay filled pasture and through the dense hardwood canopy.THE STORY: Every place has its story and so it is with the Clay Hill Ranch. Gunfights, Texas Rangers and Moonshiners first brought this ranch into notoriety. This story begins with moonshine– a hot commodity in Freestone County during Prohibition – and ends with a deadly shootout. In 1928, newspapers breathlessly reported on the Freestone “Moonshine Wars.” The story has only enlarged with time. What happened was this: Texas Rangers were sent to bust up the stills, which the moonshiner didn’t take kindly to. Shots were fired and a ranger died. More rangers were sent for the moonshiner and his sons. They didn’t go quietly. Another gun battle ensued and to no one’s surprise, the moonshiner died in a hail of bullets. His cabin still stands today on the ranch, a relic of a bygone era.CLIMATE: Summers are typically Texan–hot with July highs in the mid-90s and occasional rains interrupt to cool things off. Winters are pleasantly mild with January highs in the upper 50s and lows in the mid 30s. Freestone County receives about 42 inches of precipitation a year, almost all of that as rain.ELEVATION: Most of East Texas is only a few hundred feet above sea level and the Clay Hill Ranch is no exception. Rolling hills rise gently from the forests to the hay pastures, from a low of 353 feet to to 510 feet above sea level, a high point with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.WATER: Three spring-fed creeks run through the ranch. The largest two, Hausler Creek and Caney Creek, converge beyond the ranch with Sneed Creek and Walnut Creek. There are also two stocked lakes and more than 20 stock ponds on the ranch. Four operating wells are located throughout and two of the wells serve the primary residence and other improvements.WETLANDS: There are five managed wetland units strategically placed along the hardwood lined creeks and spring-fed low-lying bottomland that range in size from a 3.25 to 10.5+/- acres. Two of the units have water control structures to permit flooding in the fall and facilitate proper drainage and drawdown in the spring. The flooded green timber, which holds water in the winter, is superb for duck hunting. In dry years, the wetlands can be supplemented with water pumped from the adjacent live water creeks.AGRICULTURAL OPERATIONS:Cattle- In addition to the production of superior hay, Clay Hill Ranch pastures are currently being grazed by an Angus herd owned by a notable producer of all natural premium beef. While ranch ownership is not interested in stressing improved pastures, rotational grazing practices yield conservative carrying capacities of between 650 and 750 head while simultaneously harvesting between 1800 and 2000 round bales of hay per year.Hay & Forbs- About 650 acres planted in Jiggs & Tifton 85 Bermuda grasses produce an average of 9,000 4’x 6’ round bales per year from three cuttings. The horse-quality hay has been tested to have a protein factor of 17 or better. Many of the pastures have been over-seeded with Ball Clover, a legume and natural fertilizer that restores nitrogen to the soil when it dies off in late spring.About 200 acres of food plots planted in clover, wheat, and oats have been strategically located in the middle of the property to provide forage for deer and other wildlife. The soil in the hay fields and food plots is tested annually to determine the best fertilizer mix to maximize output. Potash was applied in 2016. Wooded areas controlled on a burn schedule to encourage the growth of forbs, nutritious native broadleaf plants, for deer and wildlife.FENCING: The ranch has 20 miles of exterior low fencing consisting of 5-strand barbed wire. Most openings have cattle guards instead of gates to facilitate travel. Interior cross fencing with gates or cattle guards is new, as is a pipe gate at the ranch entrance. All exterior fence lines were cleared in 2015.ROADS: All-weather roads, built over a caliche base with large culverts where needed, provide excellent access throughout the ranch.WILDLIFE: Clay Hill Ranch is known for its excellent hunting opportunities – so good, in fact, that East Texas Outdoors Magazine has written about hog hunting on the place. The oak groves, hardwood forests, creeks, and food plots create a terrific habitat for whitetail deer and wild hogs. On the low-fence ranch, where hunting is fair chase, the deer population has been judiciously managed with supplemental corn and protein feed placed at strategic sites. While it is typical to see a 120-130” buck on Clay Hill, this ranch is also home to larger Boone and Crockett sized deer in the 170-180”class. This Level 3 ranch in the Texas Managed Lands Deer Program, the past 16 years of voluntary habitat management have attracted Freestone county’s finest. Reports and details available upon request.At the peak of waterfowl migration, thousands of puddle ducks converge on the managed and natural green timber wetlands.

Livermore Ranch ~ Last of the Great PlacesThere are few truly great ranches available in Texas—ranches that are intrinsically valuable, with unique geographic features and established wildlife resources—ranches that are private and encompassing, yet still easily accessed and navigated, even among the challenging and awe-inspiring mountainscapes of the region—ranches that are true to the sky island ecosystem, and enjoyable for friends and family. Livermore Ranch is one of the last great places in Texas. Nestled in the heart of the Davis Mountains, and encompassing all of Brooks Mountain, Livermore Ranch is largely situated upon alpine topography and includes major to minor peaks, shear bluffs, notorious rock formations, deep shaded canyons, and large meadows, which creates a diverse ecological system featuring both aspen forests and productive Chihuahuan grasslands. Livermore Ranch has an abundance of game and non-game wildlife. Big game hunters will enjoy the mature and managed populations of mule deer, elk, and aoudad, along with mountain lions, turkeys, and javelinas. Bird enthusiasts will appreciate the many coveys of both scaled and Montezuma quail as well as doves, hawks, and prolific annual migratory species. The ranch also features exceptional improvements for both friends and family including a six-bedroom five-and-one-half-bath adobe brick-styled home, traditional of the Trans-Pecos region, as well as various horse barns, shops, cattle facilities, and housing for ranch management. While a truly private “end of the road” ranch, there are no impediments to access or internal navigation. It’s a ranch with four real seasons, plenty of west Texas sunshine and a high elevation climate which encompasses 4,772± acres of exclusive opportunity. Livermore Ranch truly is one of the last of the great places in Texas, whose history and scenic beauty will be most appreciated by a personal tour. Co-listed with James Sammons III of Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty.The Facts:4,772± deeded acres in the Davis Mountains of West Texas Elevations from 5,500 feet to 8,000 feet and wholly inclusive of Brooks Mountain8,166± sq. ft. six-bedroom, five-and-one-half bath traditional adobe brick lodgeHorse barn and cattle facilitiesShops and storage barnsStrong populations of mule deer, elk and aoudadMountain lion, turkey and javelinaScaled and Montezuma quail, dove, seasonally abundant migratory speciesUnparalleled and documented ecological diversity unique to Davis Mountains  Early Texas and archeological history prominent on the ranchThree named springs and five wells

The ± 4,624-acre Jacalon Ranch, located about 20 minutes from Hebbronville on the southeastern corner of Webb and northeastern corner of Zapata counties, is the South Texas ranch that wildlife enthusiasts dream of. The low-fenced ranch, surrounded by sprawling historic ranches, is home to exceptional whitetail and quail (both bobs and blues) hunting. Dove and waterfowl are abundant in their seasons. Thriving wildlife populations are a combination of exceptional habitat and effective, conscientious game management. The Jacalon Ranch, that traces its beginnings to the Jose Vasquez Borrego Spanish land grant issued in the 1760s, benefits from both. The trophy whitetail herd is managed under a MLD Level III Permit. For the past six seasons, limited hunting pressure has been applied. The diverse soil (Brundage Fine Sandy Loam, Copita Fine Sandy Loam, Hebbronville Loamy Fine Sand, Maverick-Catarina Complex, Zapata-Outcrop Complex and Gently Undulating) produces diverse vegetation delivering a natural buffet of high-energy, high-protein browse and forbs that grow robust animals. It is a rare ranch that encompasses so much diverse soil, topography and habitat. The Jacalon Ranch is in an ecological transition zone marked by the Bordas Escarpment that runs through the upper portion of the ranch. It brings together the famous red sandy country, brush motts and savannah grasslands of the Coastal Plains with the rolling hills and flatlands typical of this region of South Texas. Thanks to the escarpment the ranch also offers stunning views. On clear days, you can see Mexico’s Sierra Madre Mountains—and they’re 125 miles away. Even the strongest habitat can’t support wildlife without water. Fortunately, the Jacalon Ranch delivers with four wells, 7 stock tanks, and several creeks distributed throughout. A windmill, located near the ranch entrance, pulls from a well at 200 feet. Two more newly drilled wells that hit water at 400 feet are in the same general area and offer 4,500 gallons of storage. These wells, which flow at approximately 10 – 15 gpm each, have excellent quality drinking water. The fourth well, near the center of the ranch, extends 1,050 feet deep and provides water for wildlife, livestock and filling tanks at a rate of ± 40 gpm. FM 649 provides road frontage access to the ranch and its centerpiece, the Jacalon Ranch Lodge beautifully appointed with Spanish and Southwestern furniture and décor befitting its history and location. The lodge boasts 11 suites each with a private bath. The suites join the soaring two-story main building; the complex is equipped with telephone, high-speed internet and dish satellite. Designed to easily handle a crowd, the lodge includes a modern kitchen, a large dining room and bar area, a utility room and a full bath in the common area. Guests can enjoy a fire pit and an outdoor seating area in the midst of a native landscape oasis. A rain catchment system with an 8,000 gallon capacity helps meet water needs. To make coming and going even easier, the Jacalon Ranch Runway, a private/restricted 3,900 foot turf runway (TE89), is located adjacent to the lodge. Jim Hogg County Airport, with a paved and lighted 5,000 foot runaway, is 20 minutes away and the Laredo International Airport, which handles private and commercial flights, is 40 minutes away. The Jacalon Ranch is the stuff of a wildlife enthusiasts’ dreams—but it’s real. To experience the Jacalon Ranch for yourself, contact Howard W. Hood at 830-739-3815. Available for $1,450/acre.
