JF Ranch - Frio County, Dilley, TX

Key Attributes

The JF Ranch is an exceptional high fenced recreational ranch in the red dirt country of Frio County, Texas. This offering features an incredible deer herd benefitting from over a decade of intense management. A unique feature of the ranch is a mini-pivot irrigating a 10 acre food plot. The asking price also includes a portion of the Seller’s owned minerals and associated executive rights, a key element for a ranch located in the Eagle Ford Shale area.

Location: The ranch is located in southwestern Frio County approximately 10 miles west of Dilley, TX.

Topography: Boasting approximately 70’ of relief with the high points being centrally located, this ranch offers fantastic views of its features as well as the surrounding countryside. The ranch has not been grazed for over 12 years and the intact habitat during these recent dry times shows it. Native Grasses and high quality brush dominate the landscape providing great cover for deer and much needed nesting cover for quail and turkey. The majority of the ranch is classic South Texas brush with abundant grasses growing in the red dirt this part of south Texas is known for. The ranch also has approximately 2/3 mile of the wet weather Cibolo Creek drainage.

Wildlife & Hunting: The ranch has abundant whitetails, lots of wild turkey, dove, quail, feral hogs and other species including a few Axis deer. In 2001, the ranch’s deer herd was enhanced with 20 TTT does from a well known South Texas ranch plus 3 young stocker bucks from a well known Frio County breeder. Since then the herd has been intensively managed with trophy oriented harvest protocols and a year round supplemental feeding program resulting in one of the best deer herds in the area. Most recently, during the 2012-2013 hunting season, the ranch harvested a deer gross scoring ~205” B&C. Additional high end trophy deer are taken annually as a result of the ranch’s long term efforts to grow big antlered, heavy deer! The ranch participates in Texas Parks & Wildlife’s MLDP Level III program providing for extended seasons and more hunter opportunity. In addition, the ranch has 4 food plots (7-17 acres) including a 10 acre plot irrigated by the mini-pivot system!
