South Texas Recreational Hunting Ranch for Sale

The Z Ranch is 681± acre ranch for sale with tremendous hunting and ranching potential in South Texas. The rolling terrain, high protein brush species, native grasses, plentiful water and excellent road system, with only modest improvements, sets the stage for a new owner to create their unique vision. The ranch is 15 miles west of Crystal City and around 2 hours from San Antonio in western Zavala County. Gated access is from paved FM 2691, a highway with no outlet or connection, offering unsurpassed quiet and seclusion.

Z Ranch has excellent water supplies, including four ponds and three water wells. Two of the wells are electric and one is solar. An irrigation system is in place to water one of the food plots. Two of the ponds are piped and the other two are fed by wet weather Picosa Creek. The beautiful pond near the center of the property is surrounded by large trees and grassy fields offering unique potential. Nearby, open areas and fields provide great locations for food plots.

All the elements are in place for an excellent hunting ranch. Improved whitetail genetics were introduced to the ranch 5 years ago preparing the ranch for an exceptional deer program. In addition to whitetail, wildlife includes turkey, dove, quail, feral hogs, and javelina. The entire ranch perimeter is high-fenced and several hunting blinds and feeders are in place. The Z Ranch is operating under the TPWD MLD Conservation Option. Several deer pens have been constructed, although all deer have been released from the pens as of April 2016. Cattle currently roam the land, providing an agriculture exemption.

A home site on the interior of the ranch includes water and electrical service, as well as a carport and small storage room. The home site could immediately support a modular home and is an ideal site for a future camp house or hunting lodge. An implement barn for equipment storage has been constructed on the southeast portion of the ranch and also includes water and electricity. An older four-bedroom, three-bath home also has great potential to be remodeled into guest quarters or a foreman’s home.
