Location: The ranch is located about 18 miles east of Laredo in southern Webb County. The ranch is accessed from Hwy. 359, on which it has a short amount of frontage.
Topography & Rangelands: The ranch slopes upward from the northern portions to higher elevations to the south. It benefits from several wet weather drainages; both from a wildlife habitat perspective and from their providing runoff to the two stock ponds. The ranch has a highly diverse mix of brush species numbering ~26 and including many highly desirable species preferred by white tailed deer. The Wildlife Management Plan’s TPWD browse survey results from 2005 show nearly half “First Choice” species. The ranch is not currently being grazed.
Wildlife, Management & Hunting: The ranch is low fenced and has been managed as part of a significantly larger and well known management and hunting operation under the guidance of Dr. Mickey Hellickson, a certified wildlife biologist, since 1998. The ranch, aka the “Niti Pasture,” is regarded by the operators as one of the most productive pastures in the country they manage. Wildlife found on the ranch include white-tailed deer, dove, bobwhite quail, scaled quail, javelina, feral hog, predators/varmints and countless other non-game species. Management practices include year round supplemental feeding, supplemental watering, predator control, annual brush control projects, annual surveys and harvest recommendations. The overall management goal has been to maximize the number and antler size of mature, trophy bucks with more specific objectives regarding deer density, sustaining native habitat, reproductive rates, sex ratios, fawn survival and age structure. More details are available. As part of the ranch’s active wildlife management program, the ranch participates in Texas Parks & Wildlife’s MLDP program providing extended seasons to help achieve harvest goals on an annual basis.
Improvements & Utilities:
Water: Unlike many ranches in this part of Webb County, this ranch has a high volume water well located near the entrance.

The ranch has a small pond adjacent to the water well, plus 2 larger tanks well located on ranch to provide easy access to water across ranch for wildlife or livestock.
Minerals: Surface Only; current low impact production (gas wells) with high quality operator.
