The historic Circle Ranch located high in the Diablo Mountains of far-West Texas has had only three owners since Obadiah Bounds pioneered the ranch in 1879. He ran the O brand, giving rise to the ranch’s name. The ranch is located in Hudspeth and Culberson Counties, just 11 miles northwest of Van Horn, a 30-minute drive from the ranch south gate to its 6,000-foot jet-accessible airport, hospital, and town conveniences. El Paso, just 100 miles to the west, is a thriving major regional city with an international airport offering one-stop convenience virtually anywhere, domestic and worldwide. The fortress rim of the Diablos acts as a natural barrier for protection and creates a wilderness world unto itself.DescriptionCircle Ranch is as unique as it gets, with four distinct geographic regions or habitat providences combined into one ownership. Chihuahuan Desert, Mountain Canyonlands, High Grasslands, and Rolling Pine Highlands are balanced equally in acreage, providing for a diversity of habitats, plants, animals, and natural beauty. Mountain vistas are found throughout the ranch; as scenic as any part of the Big Bend, with clear views of Guadalupe Peak, the highest point in Texas (8,750 feet). Circle Ranch is the ‘heart’ of the Sierra Diablo Mountains and contains its highest peak – Diablo Peak (6,500 feet). The western escarpments overlook Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin 600,000-acre property. The area views are nothing short of stunning. The Circle’s owners’ management efforts have been dedicated for the past 17 years to improving range condition, habitat, and infrastructure. There is a road network, much of it milled for easy traveling throughout the ranch, and an extensive new water system that supports more than 200 watering stations. Subsoiling efforts on more than 8,000 acres and erosion control measures are designed within a holistic management philosophy, and have created healthier soil, more rainfall retention, better grassland cover, and more forage for wildlife and livestock. Livestock has been an essential tool in achieving the restoration goals and the ranch has an extensive pasture system for rotating cattle in a planned grazing system. The improvements are just as impressive as the landscape, located within a protected, sweeping valley with steep slope monument mountains, scattered all around a central headquarters complex. This is a family working and adventure ranch designed as a hacienda with interconnecting walls and buildings, creating a beautifully landscaped complex of houses, buildings, barns, patios, gardens, and lawns all under a forest of evergreen and deciduous trees on a drip irrigation system. The ranch, with its improvements, is immaculately maintained by an impressive local staff and is ready day-one for entertainment or quiet family enjoyment.Improvements Housing Main house:4-BR, 2-B, dining, living, kitchen, office, gun area, features oak floorsa full porch overlooks the Sierra Diablos.Constructed with rock quarried on the ranch.Large basement includes laundry, work benches, freezer, gun safe, food and wine storage, mouse-resistant clothes storageCommander’s quarters (CQ):Private walled garden and home.CQ is an exact replica of an Historic Fort Davis officer’s house.Bedroom and sitting room are connected by 25′ foyer/bar/coat room with gun closets, gun safe.2-baths,14’ ceilings, oak floorsSchool house:1BR with bunks1 bathGuest house1-BR, 1-LR, 1-B,full porch and enclosed garden front and rearAll houses are fully air conditioned and heatedAll baths are new or updatedAutomatic propane-powered electric back-up generator system able to run the entire HQ compound with all systems operating – summer or winterAutomatic sprinkler systemsProfessionally designed gardens300 transplanted treesTwo mechanically renovated walk-in cool roomsSmall weather station connecting to cellphones by an app for remote viewing.BarnVernacular Far West Texas historic structure, built for a working ranchCovered stallsTack roomFeed RoomWorkshop and benchesRetrofitted with rollup end doorsWinches for game butchering and/or vehicle servicingHorse breaking circleAdjacent horse pensMultiple water troughsDog runsFilled with 90-years of ranching paraphernaliaRifle Range 1,500-meter monumented rifle and pistol range with reactive steel targets and static target boards 25-yard pistol with steel targets 500-meter NRA match compliant silhouettes4-skeet trapsStorage area for targets, spotting scopes, shooting bagsCovered shooting positions with lounging, cooking, viewing areasThis is a military-grade range designed by Army and Marine long-distance rifle instructors and snipersHabitatThe Diablo Mountains are truly a high desert “Sky Island” with cool summers and monsoon rains. It is a range of mountains bridging the Guadalupe Mountains to the north with the Eagles, Van Horn, Sierra Viejas, Chinatis to the south and beyond into Mexico. These Mountain Islands are providing extremely important functions as a habitat island, with intermountain ridge lines and valleys serving as corridors for wildlife migration, especially between Texas and Mexico along the Rio Grande.Numerous bird species that are normally associated with the Rocky Mountains and/or Mexican Highlands are known to occur within this island of montane habitat. Hummingbirds, neotropical songbirds, eagles, hawks, and many more creates a year-round birding paradise.The climate and soils support a mix of desert and mountain vegetation from scrublands to grasslands, to pinon/juniper and oaks uplands. Grasses include Sideoats, Blue, Black, Hairy, and Chino grama as well as Cane Bluestem, Green Sprangle-Top, Tobosa, and many others. Along the canyon floors, and especially on the north facing hillside slopes, there are Piñon Pine, Juniper, daggers, and oaks.A variety of flowering plants and cacti provide habitat for migrating and resident birds, bats, and butterflies. The four distinct habitat providences on the ranch created by elevation, slope, topography, soils, and vegetation provides a diversity rarely found anywhere in Texas. Quail hunting in the Desert, Big Horn Sheep in the Mountain Canyonlands, Elk and Deer in the Rolling Pine Highlands, and Pronghorn in the High Grasslands. Circle Ranch has it all!WildlifeThe Circle Ranch, with its combination of geographic regional habitats, provides for the perfect location to manage and enjoy a variety for game and non-game species. Blue Quail hunting is second to none, as is the Desert Mule Deer, Elk, Big Horn Sheep, and Pronghorn. The ranch has a Level III Managed Land Deer Permit, providing for an extended season for Mule Deer and the opportunity for better management of the herd. Water distribution and road access, combined with excellent range condition and habitat provides for some of the best hunting in the state. Add the jaw-dropping mountain vistas, Circle stands alone. This area features all large ranch neighbors with low fences, including the Diablo Mountain Wildlife Management Area with a common focus of improving wildlife resources.Free-ranging game speciesDesert Bighorn Sheep (sheep permits received in 16 of the last 18 years).Desert Mule DeerPronghornElkAoudadCollared Peccary (Javelina)Scaled (Blue) QuailGamble’s QuailMearns Quail (Texas’ season is closed)Whitewing DoveMourning DoveCollared DoveTransient ducks in small numbersNon-game species and rescue animalsWild BurrosAlpacas & LlamasLonghornPrairie Dogs (6-Dog Towns)Predators (not hunted, seemingly in healthy balance)Mountain LionBobcatsCoyotesFerretsFoxesBadgersChupacabra (alleged)Birds of interestTransient waterfowl including ducks, curlew, seagullsMany songbirdsGolden Eagles (many pairs nest in the ranch’s cliffs)Great Horned OwlsMany other raptorsHummingbirdsMigratory Swallows (hundreds nest at HQ)also Mexican Freetail Bats (the Carlsbad bat populations feed and roost on and around the ranch)WaterWater on the Circle Ranch comes from a perched aquifer of shallow abundant sweet water.

 The Live Oak Ranch is located 30 miles West of Ozona, Texas on Interstate-10. The Ranch has approximately 4.5 miles of I-10 frontage and Crockett County Road 304 (Live Oak Rd.) passes through the property for 5 miles. The ranch also has a small amount of US Hwy. 290 Frontage.The Live Oak Ranch is located at the junction of Live Oak Creek and the Pecos River. The terrain is very diverse and consists of a variety of land variations from flat meadow lands along the Pecos River to high ridge top hills and deep canyons on the north side of the property. These large canyons and high hills are typical of the transition area between the Edwards Plateau and Stockton Plateau regions of Texas. Traversing through the middle of the ranch is Live Oak Creek, a wet weather creek that has an immense history dating back to the operational days of Ft. Lancaster. Located at the South end of Live Oak Creek, close to the Pecos River and Ft. Lancaster, is the mile long live oak mot that has been written about on many occasions by the early explorers and settlers of Texas. There is a combination of large mature live oak, shin oak, mesquite and juniper trees located throughout the property. The deep canyons and valleys on the ranch are an amazing source of topographical change, offering extensive elevation variation.The Live Oak Ranch is a working ranch that is watered by an extensive system of water wells, water storage tanks, and water troughs. Located on the Northwest and Southeast sides of the ranch is the Pecos River, with approximately 5 miles of frontage. Live Oak Creek is located on the eastern portion of the ranch and offers crystal clear spring fed water during wet weather. The original part of the Live Oak Ranch has been in the same family ownership for over 100 years and this is the first time that it is being offered for sale in that time. There is immense history adjoining the Live Oak Ranch, as the ranch surrounds Ft. Lancaster which was established in 1856 as an infantry post to help protect the westward expansion of the United States. The location of the Fort was established due to the close proximity of Live Oak Creek, which provided a great source of clear water and was close to the San Antonio–El Paso Pecos River crossing. Also located on the Live Oak Ranch is the famous “state of Texas” rock, which sits close to four mile crossing on the Pecos River. Four Mile crossing was an additional river crossing that was used extensively in the passage of the Pecos River in the westward expansion movement.Wildlife on the Live Oak Ranch consist of whitetail deer, rio grande turkey, quail, dove and an occasional mule deer. This is a great property offering good hunting and the ability to fish for multiple species of fish in the Pecos River.The Sellers are conveying a ¼ interest in the mineral estate that is owned by the Sellers.

Private, exclusive, majestic! Welcome to House Brand Ranch, located in Morgan and Summit Counties near Croydon, Utah. This 12,248 acre hunting, fishing, and agricultural property extends from Lost Creek Basin at an elevation of 5,300 feet to mountain tops at 8,000 feet. Irrigated fields produce beautiful alfalfa crops along Lost Creek. Dry land alfalfa is raised on higher elevation benches. The balance of the ranch includes sage brush covered slopes with groves of Aspen, Oak, and Pine trees. The property has many outstanding red rock outcroppings, especially in the Cedar Canyon area, some with arches, bowls, and coves. The ranch has a high degree of privacy and very few people have seen the true beauty of Cedar Canyon. Distance from the Salt Lake International Airport to ranch headquarters is 60 miles. Distance from Ogden, Utah to the ranch is 40 miles. Distance from the ranch to skiing and recreation in Park City, Utah is 45 miles. House Brand Ranch has been under the careful stewardship of the Peterson family since 1960. Great care has been taken to preserve and enhance water shares for irrigation and to identify and develop mountain seeps and springs for game and livestock usage. Four hundred and eighty cow/calf pairs and bulls range across the ranch during the summer months. Four hundred acres of irrigated alfalfa fields yield up to 3 tons of alfalfa per acre. Four hundred acres of dry land alfalfa yield as much as 2 tons of alfalfa per acre. The owner employs 1 ½ workers to help him each day on a year round basis to keep the ranch running efficiently. House Brand Ranch is home to abundant game. The Seller has enjoyed a consistent harvest of “trophy” class deer, elk, and moose for decades and most of their hunters are repeat customers. Additional game that can be observed on the ranch are mountain lion, coyote, turkey, sage grouse, and chukar. One of the jewels of the ranch is the 3 mile stretch of Lost Creek which flows through the property. Fishing on streams in the state of Utah, located on private property, is by permission only. Therefore the existing brown and rainbow trout are able to grow to the 18+ inch range without a lot of pressure, and side canyon streams hold smaller native and brook trout. The offering price of House Brand Ranch is $22,000,000. Any offer must be accompanied by an earnest money deposit in the amount of $500,000. Each offer must also be accompanied by the name and telephone number of the Buyer’s private banker to assist the Seller in determining the Buyer’s financial ability to accomplish the purchase.

Meyers Springs Ranch-9700 acres History is sometimes an ephemeral concept, expressed in stories and songs, but not always something we can connect with in a physical, tactile way. The Meyers Spring Ranch in Terrell County, Texas, is the exception. This plus-or-minus 9,700-acre ranch has history on display. Walking among the real historical artifacts on Meyers Spring is an experience you won't soon forget. And in addition to these unique ancient sites, the ranch offers the very best of west Texas hunting and recreation, packaged along with quality improvements and excellent ranch infrastructure. Located approximately 45minutes south of Interstate 10 the ranch is accessed at the end of an all-weather county road through a gated entry. The Meyers Springs ranch is made up of two major sections: an 7,800 acre main parcel and a 2,000 acre game pasture. A good system of well-maintained roads provides access to all corners of this ranch. This area of Texas is characterized by sweeping panoramic views, a healthy variety of native brush, and excellent habitat for a variety of native and exotic game. The ranch has been managed for trophy deer, and the wildlife includes whitetail deer, mule deer, gemsbok, turkey, quail, dove, and the occasional black bear. But the real prize of this one-of-a-kind ranch are the unbelievable historical remnants of Native American Indians that inhabited this ranch for thousands of years. They left their metaphorical footprints all over the ranch -- most prominently in the form of incredibly well-preserved pictographs found on a bluff near Meyers Spring. These paintings have been studied extensively by archaeologists and historians from around the country, and the scenes are thought to tell the stories of their time, including images of European contact. The pictographs have been protected by the overhanging bluff, keeping them bright and prominent on these walls. Since water is such a valuable resource in this area, the ranch was also home to an outpost for black Seminole soldiers in the 1870s and 1880s. Massive amounts of water pour out of the walls into a man-made reservoir that contains thousands of gallons of spring water, as well as a variety of fish. A cornerstone of the dam is etched with the year of construction -- 1901 -- constructed by Lt. John Bullis, a hero of the Civil War who eventually commanded soldiers in this area of west Texas. This site is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and a plaque has been erected as a monument to that distinction. The canyon and spring are named for one of the soldiers that served under Lt. Bullis. The black Seminole scouts were known as the Black Watch, and they built a small fort near the spring, consisting of fifteen one-room adobe huts and two stone houses, one of which has been painstakingly restored to its original form. More modern improvements are located near the headquarters, including a high-quality manufactured home with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. This home is perched on a high point with incredible views in every direction. In addition, a large barn stores implements and ranch gear. Nearby, two more bunk houses and a game cleaning station have been constructed. For easy access to the ranch, a hangar and two airstrips are positioned so that takeoffs and landings are possible no matter the wind direction. The main runway is 3,500 feet in length, long enough to support even larger aircraft. Ranch infrastructure includes eight water wells, 13 earthen tanks, 17 hunting blinds, and remote video monitoring systems for the deer feeders. This amazing property has so much to offer that it must be seen in person to be truly appreciated. Contact Duperier Texas Land Man for more information about Meyers Spring Ranch -- one of the most historic pieces of private land in west Texas. With agreeable terms.

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.

The broad diversity of soils from sand, caliche hills, and deep clays, support a unique assemblage of native grasses, forbs, brush and trees, including guajillo, blackbrush, granejo, tasajilla and mature mesquites. Decades of careful land management also provides for a rich diversity of native and improved grasslands. White Tailed deer populations are tremendous here with excellent genetics.

One of the few remaining historic northern California cattle and hay ranches, in one of the best locations: at the foot of the Sierra! The Historic Constantia Ranch is a classic historical northern California cattle and hay ranch. This unique Ranch’s history dates back to the late 1800’s when Albert Elijah Smith discovered the land and built a $14,000 mansion with 17 rooms. It was nicknamed the “White House.” The Ranch is located in Doyle Ca. just 40 minutes north of Reno NV, with acreage on both sides of U.S. Hwy 395. The majority of the ranch land is nearly all level, with approximately 600 acres of steeper land reaching into the Sierra and bordering National Forest. The Ranch has various water sources. There is a productive spring that consistently provides about 300 GPM to the ranch headquarter buildings and provides significant flood irrigation on a portion of the ranch. The Ranch has excellent water rights from Long Valley Creek; a dam on the property is able to divert enough water to run a full pivot. Additionally there is a brand new well on the property that pumps 1,300 GPM. There is an older well on the property that pumps approximately 450 GPM that is run by diesel power. The aquifer in the area is stable. It is possible to drill additional productive wells closer to power. There are currently two pivots on the ranch, new in 2008, with additional older wheel lines. The ranch currently produces approximately 400-500 ton of hay and alfalfa per year. The production could be significantly increased with better overall management. The Historic Constantia Ranch has plenty of usable contiguous deeded acres, with the resources and potential of running as many as 300-350 head of cattle year round, inside the deeded land, with an efficient grazing program. Improvements on the ranch include an approximately 3,000 sq. ft.ranch headquarters home with a 3 car garage. A second smaller home provides for comfortable living for a caretaker or ranch employees. There is a large approximately 9,000 sq. ft. metal barn that was newly built in 2010. Also included is a classic 100 year old wooden barn, a smaller wooden barn, and two older homes that at one time were the old ranch headquarters. These homes could possibly be restored or reconstructed. There are about 6 mostly historic “Constantia” buildings, including the old Constantia store, all in need of restoration, repair or reconstruction. Less than an hour from Reno Tahoe International Airport. This is all quality land with resources intact. There is tremendous upside and unlimited potential for the Historic Constantia Ranch with quality ownership and good management.
