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 style, as befitting a Brush Country ranch, is rustically elegant and resplendent with adobe, stone, hammered metal and wood. Strategically placed courtyards and gathering areas ensure that family and guests can soak up the textured beauty of South Texas. The two-bedroom/two-bath Farm House encompasses 1,600± square feet of updated, beautifully appointed living space. The open floor plan residence features a kitchen with an eating area and living room. With four bedrooms and four baths, the 2,500± square-foot Dog Trot, situated across the courtyard from the Farm House, serves as a guest house. The two-story Chef House features two bedrooms, one full bath and one-half bath. Set away from the main compound, the six bedroom/six bath Cowboy Cabins measure about 1,000 square feet. 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. In addition, there is a 700± square-foot laundry and a 500± square-foot secure gun room. The Infrastructure The North Ranch has a shooting range with a two-story, covered shooting deck and a five-station skeet range with an elevated shooting pavilion. The North Ranch's perimeter is high-fenced and there is also a 3,000± acre high-fenced "enclosure". Approximately 7 miles of five-wire cedar post fences have been installed as cross fences.

Spanning approximately 7,986 acres in the Rolling Plains of West Texas, the Sugarloaf Ranch boasts a private oasis with grand views, surface water, flowing creeks, and a massive lodge built for entertainment. The ranch is about a 3-hour drive from DFW, located a short distance from Crowell, Texas and with direct access to Highway 70. Being in the heart of big ranch country in northwest Texas, Sugarloaf Ranch neighbors the historic 120,000-acre Triangle Ranch to the north, the vast 550,000-acre Waggoner Ranch, and the expansive 180,000-acre Pitchfork Ranch. LOCATION The Sugarloaf Ranch is approximately 80 miles from Wichita Falls, 160 miles from Amarillo, 155 miles from Lubbock, 195 miles from Oklahoma City, 200 miles from Fort Worth, and 220 miles from Dallas. Regional runways in Crowell (3,200') and Vernon (5,100') offer convenient access for those who prefer to fly. WILDLIFE The Sugarloaf is bordered to the east by the high-fenced, 1,500-acre Six Mile Hill Ranch and to the north by the 11,500-acre US Army Corps of Engineers land, resulting in extremely low hunting pressure that has allowed the ranch to be inhabited by a considerable population of mule and white-tailed deer. Recent dove and quail hunts have yielded impressive results, while other wildlife species such as turkey, ducks, hogs, and coyotes also call the ranch home. The diverse native vegetation sustains this rich wildlife ecosystem, fostering a harmonious balance. AGRICULTURE Discover the richness of the ranchs varied terrain, from hilly expanses to captivating canyons like the Bowley and Sloans Springs systems that run through the north sections of the ranch. Venture into the southern sections to find flat pastures adorned with juniper cedars, mesquites and hackberry trees. IMPROVEMENTS Accessed via a private road off US Highway 70, a 10,000-square-foot lodge with 9 bedrooms and 10 1/2 baths underwent an extensive renovation in 2023, offering ample accommodations for a large number of guests. Renovations included the installation of wood flooring throughout the upstairs bedrooms and second story, new granite countertops in all bathrooms, and an expanded and revamped kitchen. Four of the bedrooms feature fireplaces for added allure. The upper floor hosts a bar area complete with two pool tables, four poker tables, a spacious bar, and a central stone fireplace. In August 2023, a new roof was installed, and nearly all exterior logs of the lodge were replaced and freshly painted within the past year. WATER Water is an abundant resource on the ranch, with four primary drainages and approximately 20 water tanks that can be fished for bass year-round. The four creeks traversing the north end of the ranch tyoucaally hold water year-round. The headquarters benefit from a community water supply, while additional water sources cater to the needs of your cattle. MINERALS The sale encompasses all subsurface mineral interests owned by the seller, who possesses a fractional interest (ranging from 1/16th to 1/32nd) in the mineral estate under most sections of the ranch. The Raspberry (Caddo 6100) Field hosts five producing wells that yield an average annual income of around $7,500 for the seller, contingent upon market conditions. Lease conditions stipulate that the operator is responsible for the roads. ***Interior Lodge Pictures Coming Soon***

Just outside of Alpine, Texas, the Anchor Land & Cattle Ranch, historically part of the Kokernot family holdings, is a spectacular example of rolling desert grasslands suitable for grazing and wildlife management. The vistas from the home’s porch are spectacular with commanding views of the area mountain ranges, including the Glass and Del Norte Mountains to the east and south. Arguably one of the best locations for a sunrise cup of coffee to be found! To the north and Northwest are views of Henderson Mesa, the Barilla Mountains and the Davis Mountains, beyond the landmark view of Mitre Peak. LOCATION The Anchor Land & Cattle Ranch is located a short 3.8 miles east of the center of Alpine, Texas along the north side of Hwy. 90. In addition to the access and frontage along Hwy. 90 (3,841 feet of frontage), there is also frontage on Country Club Estates Dr. On the west (785 feet of frontage) and access via Kimball Lane on the north. Kimball Lane traverses the northern end of ranch for about a mile. TOPOGRAPHY, RANGELAND & HABITAT The ranch is predominantly level and rolling grasslands accented by multiple hills and several drainages. The ranch’s elevations range from about 4200’ to 4520’ above sea level with the higher elevations mainly on the western portions of the ranch. Native grasses found on the ranch include various grama grasses, tobosa and Arizona Cottontop. Brush and tree species include mesquite, catclaw, acacias, hackberry, and succulents. WILDLIFE The ranch is home to a small herd of pronghorn antelope and mule deer use the ranch as part of their range. The ranch typically harvests 1-2 mule deer bucks per year and historically has taken 1-2 Pronghorn annually but no antelope have been taken in last 3 years due to drought related population concerns. In addition, the ranch has javelina, dove, blue quail, migratory waterfowl and predators (plus feral hogs and occasionally aoudad); all providing additional hunting opportunities. IMPROVEMENTS The ranch is improved with an approximate 3,400 SF (including porches) two-story barndominium with about 1/3 garage/shop/barn and 2/3 being a two-story residence with a bunkroom/office, etc. downstairs and a 2 bedroom/2 bath with kitchen and dining/living area upstairs. Both downstairs and upstairs have nice easterly-facing porches. Ranching improvements include perimeter fencing (much of it new), one cross fence separating a 600+/- acre pasture on north end from main pasture, working pens, horse pens, a well-distributed water system with a dozen or more troughs, and ranch roads. Note, inholdings (see below) and a neighbor are not fenced out at this time. There is a 1,000-yard shooting range. There is a nice entrance off Hwy 90 and the main entry road is paved for about 1.4 miles through the development piece described below. WATER Portions of Alpine Creek, Moss Creek and some of their tributaries traverse the ranch. While most are seasonal, one of those stretches is a live water creek that benefits from treated and tested water leaving the City of Alpine water treatment facility located on the neighbor to the west. The water entering the ranch averages about 200,000 gallons per day, more during periods of rainfall and less if the city is using the water for other purposes (e.g. watering golf course). The live water creek courses through the ranch for about 3.5 miles providing a valuable water resource for livestock, wildlife and birdlife. There are four water wells on the ranch at present; two of which are equipped with submersibles and operational. The other two are ready to be equipped and tied into the system. Of the two operating wells, one services the residence area and the second services the livestock watering distribution and delivery system. The ranch also benefits from shared water from the neighbor (ask broker for further details). The residence also has a rainwater catchment system and related storage and delivery system. There are numerous dirt stock tanks catching and holding runoff water following adequate rainfall. ELECTRICITY Electricity is available in several areas on the ranch. MINERALS Negotiable DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL The previous owner laid out and platted some 552 acres out of the southernmost portion of the ranch and fronting along a portion of the Hwy 90 frontage (aka Kokernot Ranch Estates). The development plan included 20 tracts ranging in size from 16.04 acres to 49.23 acres with most being about 20 acres. They are situated on the east and west sides of the paved entry road mentioned above. The previous owner also buried electrical power and telephone lines to service the various tracts. Of the twenty tracts, four of the tracts (tracts #20, #17, #14 and #16) are owned by others. All of those conveyed tracts are on the west side of the road. Those four tracts have legal access on the improved main road and are effectively or physically inholdings in the case of #20. At this time there are no improvements on any of the 4 tracts nor are they fenced out from the ranch. At least a couple of the tract owners are willing sellers per conversations with manager. There are certain obligations the owner has with respect to owning 16 of the 20 tracts. EASEMENTS, ETC. The ranch has two smaller 69KV electric transmission lines crossing the ranch. One along Highway 90 and another centrally located and crossing east-west. The Energy Transfer Trans Pecos Pipeline (natural gas 42”) crosses the ranch east-west near the northern border. Kimball Lane also traverses the ranch near the northern border. There is a 30’ access easement to an unfenced 100-acre neighbor (Reinhardt) from Kimball Lane adjacent to property line. The 100 acres are subject to various restrictions limiting its uses and potentially further development; however, those same restrictions apply to Anchor’s three bordering sections except for grazing and wildlife management at this time (ask broker for details). A 35± acre portion of the ranch is located north of the railroad right of way that traverses the ranch near the northern border and is currently fenced into a neighbor’s pasture and used by the neighbor. OTHER Livestock, any rolling stock, equipment, furnishings or other personal property owned by the seller or any other person are not included in the offering but may be separately negotiable.

Montell Summit is a very unique ranch that encompasses a tremendous amount of character.

A chip sealed road is going in over the ridge line and will run from the front of the ranch to the back, allowing quick and easy access throughout. This is scheduled to be completed by the middle of April.

The New Year Creek Ranch is a spectacular live water ranch located just north of Chappell Hill in one of the most sought-after areas of the county and in proximity to both Houston and Austin. This ranch is a fantastic opportunity for a long-term investor, an end user wanting the convenience of the location, or a developer. In addition to over 3/4 of a mile of free-flowing New Year Creek, the ranch offers extensive pasturelands, wonderful woodlands, rolling terrain, and spring-fed ponds allowing for extensive agricultural, equestrian, and recreational opportunities. LOCATION The New Year Creek Ranch is located about 3 miles from the charming community of Chappell Hill, 10 miles from Brenham (where grocery, medical, and home improvement options are available), about 60 miles from Houston, and only 98 miles to Austin. The ranch has extensive frontage on FM 1155 (~4,550) and on South Meyersville and North Meyersville Roads (over 2 miles). TOPOGRAPHY, RANGELAND & HABITAT The varied yet pastoral terrain, rangelands, and wildlife habitat of the New Year Creek Ranch have welcomed many different uses over the years from cattle grazing to recreational hunting to periodically hosting a fox hunt on horseback with foxhounds. With over 100 of elevation changes across the ranch, the rolling terrain includes four distinct drainages and incredible trees, including live oaks, water oaks, post oaks, pecans and elms. Multiple hilltops offer tremendous 360-degree views that are truly breathtaking. Only about 172 acres, generally along New Year Creek, are located in the FEMA floodplain. WILDLIFE The ranch enjoys populations of wildlife including great white-tailed deer numbers, a few quail, dove, and some limited waterfowl; as well as feral hogs and predators. AGRICULTURE Currently, the ranch is leased to an area grazer who runs cattle on New Year Creek Ranch. The owner also keeps a small Wagyu herd and some horses on the ranch. IMPROVEMENTS The ranch is improved with a unique multi-story hilltop home with commanding views of the ranch and surrounding countryside. The headquarters area where the home also includes an enclosed barn, a shed, and other necessary infrastructure for ranching operations. WATER The ranch is watered by the 3/4 of a mile of live water New Year Creek, numerous stock ponds (several being spring fed), and 2 water wells servicing the home and headquarters area as well as some distribution to troughs. The ranch is situated over the Gulf Coast Aquifer with plentiful and relatively shallow (100 150) groundwater. ELECTRICITY The ranch has electrical service at the headquarters and on numerous other portions of the ranch. AREA HISTORY Washington County played an extensive role in Texas History, too much to include here, but it is interesting to note that artifacts from the Paleo-Indian culture have been found in the area that is now Washington County, indicating that it has been occupied by humans for perhaps 9,000 years or more. Early Indian residents most likely included the Tamique and Xaraname tribes, who inhabited the prairie between the Tonkawas of Central Texas and the coastal-dwelling Karankawas. Early frontiersmen found Tonkawas living in permanent settlements in the central portion of the area that is now Washington County and encountered transient Arananamus and Apaches in the area (Source: TSHA Online). On the ranch, a site is suspected to be a significant mound feature that has not been thoroughly investigated. With minimal floodplain, multiple amazing views, and tons of road frontage, this ranch would be a great long-term investment for future development. The ranch has several high-end developments next door and this area of Chappell Hill is growing at a very fast rate.

San Fernando Creek San Fernando Creek enters the West Tract along its northern boundary and flows to the east, generally bisecting each tract, and exits the property along the west boundary of the East Tract. San Fernando Creek is seasonal and will typically have stronger water flow in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Gorgeous, mature Live oak and Pecan trees line the banks on both sides. The creek bed consists of decomposed granite sand with a striking pinkish hue and is dotted with scattered granite outcroppings along its course. There are multiple locations along the creek with deeper pools that are fed by springs and these spots generally hold water during much of the year. Generally, the creek bed is 200’ to 300’ in width, but does expand up to 500’ in certain areas. The creek runs for a total of 6,865’ or 1.30 miles through the property. The West Tract (277.29 ac) has 3,215’ of creek frontage, with roughly 76-ac on the north side of the creek and 201-ac on the south side.

The elevation generally slopes from north to south and ranges from 1,070’ along the Llano River, up to 1,120’ in the northern pasture areas of the property. The homestead, which sits on the La Hacienda Rio tract, was strategically placed on an isolated hill that is 1,135’ at its peak. Soils consist primarily of deep, fine and course sandy loam throughout the property, which are ideal for wildlife food plot development. There are striking granite rock formations throughout the ranch, the most notable being a 25’ high monolith that sits on the Rancho El Aguila tract. With a basal area of about ½ acre, this rock structure is an easy climb and offers fantastic views of the surrounding Llano River valley. WILDLIFE Llano County is known as the “Deer Capital of Texas” and boasts a county-level population density of over 290 white-tailed deer per thousand acres. Deer are abundant on the ranch, but it is not overpopulated. The ranch has been very lightly grazed by livestock and the deer herd has been kept in check with the habitat, which provides excellent quality and quantities of forage below 6 feet, hiding and escape cover, and thermal cover. Other game species commonly seen on the property include Rio Grande turkey, mourning & white-wing doves, feral hogs, and occasionally Bobwhite quail. Other indigenous wildlife species such as migratory waterfowl, raptors, songbirds, various small mammals, and reptiles are also abundant and are commonly seen. IMPROVEMENTS Ranch House, Barns, & Electricity The original homestead house, built in 1923, still stands on the La Hacienda Rio tract and is still in use by the landowner.

There is one (1) larger sized metal barn just south of the house that is roughly 2,080 SqFt and is currently used to store a tractor and other equipment. There are three (3) additional smaller metal storage sheds on the ranch. Electricity has been extended into each component section of the property and is provided by CTEC. Fencing & Roads All sections of the ranch have perimeter fencing and it is in good condition. The south fence sits roughly 300’ north of the edge of the river to protect it from fast moving water during times of flooding. There are typical ranch roads in good condition throughout the ranch.
