Cactus Jack Ranch

4,852+/- Acres    ·    Webb County, TX    ·    $12,861,081 (Asking Price) - SOLD

PRICE REDUCED! Within the “Golden Triangle” of South Texas there is a mineral rich “red dirt” zone with a mythical area situated in northeastern Webb County; an area that has proven to consistently produce the largest antlered native white-tailed deer in Texas. The historic 7,003 Acre +/- Cactus Jack Ranch lies within this “Holy Grail” of Texas deer habitat and genetics. Managed accordingly, this ranch also has the potential to be a top-notch quail destination as well. Already well watered, the topography and existing high volume well offer the potential for larger lakes to round out the ranch’s year round appeal.

The ranch’s rifle managed deer herd regularly produces 200 plus inch deer with 9 bucks of that stature having been taken; plus another 19 super trophies scoring over 180 inches. The largest deer that have been harvested both scored 226 inches, with one being harvested in 2013. Suffice it to say that the deer herd is exceptional!

The ranch has rolling terrain, numerous wet weather drainages, and a unique escarpment rising majestically on the western portion of the ranch. The topography and soils support an incredible diversity of flora and fauna making the Cactus Jack an incredible opportunity for the wildlife and hunting enthusiast. In addition to the infamous white-tailed deer herd, the ranch also supports robust populations of dove, quail and javelina, plus turkey; not to mention many varmints and other non-game species.

The management program includes supplemental feeding via 49 protein feeders, 18 plus food plots and 37 corn feeders. Water resources include 39 watering stations/troughs, 3 water wells (including a high volume well) and 14 plus stock tanks, some supplemented.

The high fenced ranch has been intensively managed to preserve the integrity and to maximize the potential of the native deer herd for 20 years on the majority (69%) of the ranch. The remainder has been similarly managed for 14 years. The ranch is high fenced into two pastures: 4,855 acres and 2,148 acres, with additional interior pasture low fencing for grazing purposes, if conditions warrant.

The ranch’s headquarters area supports the operations of the ranch with manager/hands’ homes and quarters, several barns, a fully equipped game cleaning area with walk in cooler, bulk feed storage, horse barn, cattle pens and lighted roping arena.

The custom built main house and guesthouse are located on a hilltop about a mile from the headquarters. The main house is a 4BR/3BA home with a swimming pool, hot tub and fire pit; perfect for entertaining or simply enjoying the views: sunrise, sunset or the stars at night! The adjacent 3BR/3.5BA guesthouse is perfect for your guests and also has great room for relaxing.
