Topography, Rangeland & Habitat
4S Ranch is located in South Texas brush country and offers excellent native grasses and brush such as blackbrush, huisache, Spanish dagger and mesquite that create both opportunities for wildlife refuge and wild forage for the native wildlife population. The northern portion of the ranch has thicker brush ideal for deer habitat, while portions of the south of the ranch are more open creating opportunities for hunting quail. The soil of the ranch is primarily red sandy loam (“red sand”) with a heavier concentration of clay on the south of the ranch.
The wildlife on the ranch consists of a carefully managed white-tailed deer herd under an MLD program. South Texas is known for the best white-tailed deer genetics in Texas and 4S is no exception with opportunities for 170 class deer annually. In addition to the whitetail, there are also turkey, quail, dove and javelina on the ranch, and can commonly be found around the pivot field located at the center of the ranch or the numerous watering holes spread across the property. The ranch also hosts a small herd of nilgai who thrive in the South Texas ecosystem and offer a challenging hunting experience.
4S hosts an excellent road system that grants access to all portions of the ranch. There are several blind and feeder areas already in place that offer hunting both on traditional South Texas senderos as well as overlooking the water ponds spread throughout the property. The ranch also contains a large barn for equipment, wildlife cleaning and storage, and vehicle storage. For housing, the property has three small houses, all connected to electricity with an area ready for a large lodge to be constructed.
Surface water on the 4S consists of a large 5-acre pond as well as numerous watering holes for the wildlife. The 5-acre pond is lined and fed by a 650-gallon-per-minute deep Carrizo water well which also provides water for the pivot field at the center of the ranch. Several watering holes for the wildlife spread throughout the property and have been crafted to blend into the terrain and provide shelter for the wildlife. These watering holes are fed by additional shallow water wells.
There is electricity available to each of the three sites where improvements are located, and two electric lines run through the ranch.
No minerals are available with this ranch. There are two active natural gas pad sites on the ranch, and recent new developments have been offsite underground wells that do not disturb the surface of the ranch.
