South Texas

Texas,  it brings so many thoughts and emotions that it’s hard to get them all into words, but honor, independence, strong character, and deep cultural roots come immediately to mind.           -Craig Carter

The South Texas region is one of the largest regions with a number of sub-regions at considerable distances from each other, stretching from the Lower Rio Grande Valley, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, and Laredo. The South Texas plains and brush country makes its transition along the boundaries of the Texas Hill Country and continuing on through the subtropical areas of the Lower Rio Grande Valley. Terrain varies from densely covered rolling hills covered in high protein native brush, bull mesquites and prickly pear to the sprawling open grasslands, all with a healthy covering of Live Oak trees and other native hardwoods. Soils of South Texas are primarily alkaline to slightly acidic clays and clay loams. The deeper soils sustain the taller brush species, such as mesquite and spiny hackberry and other types, while the shorter, dense brushes grow better in the caliche soils. This South Texas Region also encompasses the Rio Grande Valley, following the very long Rio Grande River. The subtropical ecosystem found along this stretch lies the farthest south than any other in the United States. It is likened to that of parts of Florida in its weather, humidity and rainfall. Tropical birds, subtropical woodlands, palm and citrus trees make up this Rio Grande delta region.

South Texas is famous for its bird watching along the border and coastal areas; while trophy whitetail deer hunting remains a favorite on private ranches.
