Menard & Schleicher Counties
Encompassing approximately 1,235 acres, the Valley View Ranch provides an opportunity for someone to acquire a turn-key hunting ranch that is ready to go. This is a classic western hill country ranch located in a highly desirable area.
This ranch is very clean and well maintained. Terrain is primarily composed of gently rolling to rough oak covered hills with an excellent turf of native grasses. There are three primary oak species throughout the ranch which are Live Oak, Shin Oak and Texas Red Oak.
In the south central portion of the ranch there is an area of level country with deeper soils and some mesquite.
Overall, this ranch has very little cedar or mesquite throughout the majority of the property.
Elevations range from 2,250' above sea level to 2,350' above sea level.
The Valley View Ranch represents a turn-key offering. Most blinds and feeders will remain with the ranch. Additionally, most furnishings and equipment will remain as well.
Water is provided by two water wells. One well, located at the house, is equipped with a submersible pump. The other well is equipped with a windmill.
In addition to the wells, there are three rain water collection systems that collect 250 gallons of water per one inch of rain. These provide additional water to the wildlife.
The ranch is well improved with a 2,100 square foot ranch house that includes three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The house includes a large living room with a rock fireplace and an open kitchen with a large pantry and recessed lighting. The exterior walls of the home are Texas Cedar and the interior walls are Aspen.
Additionally, there is a two bedroom bunkhouse.
Two barns provide ample storage as well as game cleaning facilities.
The Valley View Ranch provides exceptional hunting opportunities for white-tail deer, turkey, dove and varmints. Occasionally exotics are seen on the ranch.
The ranch currently has a Texas Parks and Wildlife MLD Level 3 permit which allows for a 5 month deer hunting season. The property has been well managed for hunting and this area is well known for quality deer and a large turkey population.
The Sellers will convey all owned minerals which is believed to be 25% of the executive rights.
