History: Going back hundreds of years, the Apache and Comanche Indians were fighting with the Mexicans and with each other over the rights to live in the Davis Mountains, including the property we call Fox Canyon Ranch. In the mid-1800s, thousands of pioneers, freight wagons and mail carriers began traveling through the Trans-Pecos region and the U.S. Army began to build forts to protect their routes of travel, primarily from Indian raids. The first Fort Davis, established in 1854, was one of these posts. It remained active until early in the Civil War, being abandoned in 1862. After the Civil War, travel continued the San Antonio-El Paso Road and so did raiding by Apaches and Comanches, which resulted in the Army re-establishing Fort Davis. In 1867, four companies of African American Buffalo Soldiers were assigned to the fort. They became a formidable force that ultimately stopped the raiding by the Indians. But in the process, three soldiers were killed on top of a knob hill on the property now known as Fox Canyon Ranch. The soldiers were surrounded but they held off an Apache raiding party until running out of ammunition. The surrounding territory finally became peaceful during the last ten years (1881-1891) that the fort was in existence. The railroad came to the Trans-Pecos area in the late 1800s. In the early 1900s, a young couple, William Walter McElroy and his wife, Georgia Ann, stepped off of one of its passenger cars in search of land to put down new roots. They bought a buckboard and supplies and pitched their tent directly across the creek from where the Apaches had been pounding their grain in their molcajetes years earlier. It was the beginning of the 7,700-acre McElroy Ranch. McElroy had just enough money to buy a cow, some food, a couple of mules and some barbed wire. He was going into the Mohair business and needed something better, but easier to build, than the rock walls that were there at the time. He would start early in the morning loading his mule team with wire and posts to head up the mountain, with him following the mules on foot with a bull whip. Sinking posts in the rocky terrain was depleting and time consuming. It was years before he could hire permanent help. Once, while working on top of the mountain alone, he broke his femur and, with one good leg, had to throw himself over a pack mule and endure the pain while trying to stay on the mule as it jostled its way off the mountain and back to his wife, Georgia, who loaded him into the buckboard for the long drive into town. Later they had a daughter, Mary, and two sons, Sonny and Earl, who were a big help with the ranch. They also hired migrant labor and, with the government mohair subsidies that resulted from World War II soldiers need for wool, they prospered. But, after Mr. McElroy died, and Sonny and Earl struggled with dwindling mohair subsidies, and they faced mounting debt, they decided to sell 2,800 acres of the ranch in 1974 in order to get a debt free clean start. They kept the grazing rights on the entire ranch and we, the new owners who bought the 2800 acres for hunting, had hunting rights on the entire ranch. We were from various parts of Texas and were friends who had hunted mule deer and elk together for several years in Chama, New Mexico. Chama was a two-day drive and required an out of state license. Fox Canyon Ranch is a half day drive and requires only a Texas license and it looked a lot like the terrain in Chama, New Mexico. We built a hunting lodge in the mouth of Fox Canyon, and ultimately, we bought the remainder of the ranch and renamed it Fox Canyon Ranch. Except for running a few head of cattle to help with expenses, Fox Canyon Ranch became, and still is, nothing but fun and recreation. Unlike the flat land covered with white brush and cat claw that leads from the highway to our front gate, Fox Canyon Ranch is nothing but beautiful mountains and canyons full of wildlife. It is a Jewel of the Davis Mountains and worthy of being a national park. At least that is the way we have viewed it, and felt about it, since 1974. Habitat & Topography: Forage resources are in good condition on the ranch. The ranch consists of mid-elevation grassland that includes desirable species such as sideoats grama, blue grama, plains bristlegrass and black grama. The growing season is June through September with most grass and forb production during the rainy season at the end of summer. The main body of the ranch has a unique topography which includes approximately 2,500 +/- ft in elevation changes. The ranch is all mountains and your opportunity to own your entire mountain range in west Texas. For the new owner there are ample spaces and opportunities to expand grazing, viewing spots, camping or additional improvements. Wildlife, Hunting: This ranch is loaded with game, trophy mule deer, big aoudad rams, large elk herds, javelinas, wild hogs, 3 species of quail and a variety of predators including mountain lions. This is a true sportsmans paradise. Water: This property has superior surface and subsurface water for the area. Multiple natural springs flow from the mountains creating an oasis for wildlife and water for the cattle. In addition to the spring fed water there are 2 deep electric wells to service both the old homestead and the main lodge. Homes: The main lodge is an open, spacious lodge with 2 main bunk rooms and 2 large bathrooms. The main room which has a stately bar with ample room for entertaining features floor to ceiling windows centered on the majestic views of the Davis Mountains, whether you are enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning by the picture window or a cocktail on the massive deck in the afternoon, being surrounded by these mountains is something special and the views make you second guess that you are in West Texas. The old McElroy homestead, situated directly across the creek from where the Apaches had been pounding their grain in their molcajetes, is a 3-bedroom 2-bath camp house with kitchen and storage. In addition, there is a 2-bedroom, 1-bath caretaker house situated near to the old homestead, a small shop, two truck barns and pole barns for the mountain cruisers. These pole barns hold a dozen full-sized outfitted and rigged trucks and UTVs.

Carpenter Day ranch is located 22 miles Southeast of Sonora, on the western edge of the Texas Hill Country, and encompasses 2616 acres of beautiful, sprawling landscape. Surrounded by larger ranches, and with county road frontage, this ranch is accessible yet private. A mixture of oak savannas, native grasses and mesquite flats are a testament to the ranch’s good soils and provide ideal habitat for a variety of native and exotic wildlife. Much of the cedar has been removed and the flat to gently rolling terrain makes navigating the ranch easy. Ideally suited as a recreational hunting property, this low-fenced ranch is a sportsman’s dream. Native wildlife includes whitetail deer, Rio Grande turkey, ducks, dove and quail, and numerous exotic species abound including Axis deer, Blackbuck antelope and feral hogs. The large herds of free-ranging Axis deer provide world class trophy potential and year-round hunting opportunities for the finest of game meats. A 385+/- acre pasture has been high-fenced in the NE corner of the ranch and contains introduced genetic whitetails of superior quality. The property has been intensively managed under MLDP for the past 10 years. Ranch improvements include a tastefully designed and well-crafted ranch headquarters comprising a 5,600 +/- sf lodge, twin guest casitas and an outdoor entertainment area. The rustic style lodge features 3 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, commercial kitchen, living and dining areas, full bar, and a towering stone fireplace. Other amenities include a metal equipment barn outfitted with a new, electric walk-in cooler and game processing facility. The separate guest casitas located near the lodge are single bedroom, each with their own bathrooms. Rounding out the improvements is a well-maintained 3/2 foreman's home and a rock water storage tank, locally known as a pila, that serves as a swimming pool.

INTRODUCTION: In the same family for about 100 years, the Double B Ranch is easily one of the best combination livestock and hunting ranches ever offered for sale in Spectacular Southwest Texas. Located in north-central Edwards County, the ranch exhibits some of the most desirable aspects of the western Hill Country, nearby West Texas, and the southern Edwards Plateau. The flat to gently rolling topography allows easy access for livestock and hunters to every part of the ranch, and the cover provides essential browse and protection for White-tail deer, livestock, and other game. HISTORY: Edwards County was created in 1858 out of Bexar County and was finally organized in 1883, with Rocksprings established as the county seat in 1891. Indians raiding out of Mexico during this period were especially troublesome to pioneer settlers as this area was a prime hunting ground teeming with deer, turkey and other game. In the national depression of the 1890s, the prices of wool dropped to 5 per pound and cattle to $12 per head. But ranching by then was well enough established that cattle, sheep and especially Angora goats (which produce Mohair) dominated the economy of the area for the next one hundred years. Rocksprings became the center of the national Mohair Industry and still claims the title The Mohair Capital of the World. Only in recent years has the superabundant White-tail deer populations, along with introduced exotic game, allowed hunting to challenge ranching as the dominant industry. One of the current owners of the ranch is a granddaughter of the ranch pioneers who acquired what is now the Double B in 1925. Other descendants of the family continue to own adjacent and other ranches in Edwards County. Most of the Double Bs neighboring ranches are are still owned by descendants of other early ranch families.
