Tres Arroyos Ranch - Duval County, TX

Key Attributes


Exceptional high fenced recreational and agricultural ranch appropriately named for the three predominant drainages that are on the ranch. Along with rolling hills covered in excellent south Texas brush, the ranch includes an extensive water distribution system benefitting both wildlife and livestock.

Location: The ranch is located located in southwestern Duval County approximately 27 miles driving distance SSW from Freer (a hub in deer circles) and 24 miles driving distance (NNW) from Hebbronville, TX, well known to quail enthusiasts.

Topography: The ranch has rolling hills falling off into various drainages including Macho Creek. The ranch boasts approximately 100’ of relief offering beautiful views of the ranch’s features as well as the surrounding countryside. The majority of the ranch is classic south Texas brush with large Hackberries and Mesquites along the arroyos.

Wildlife & Hunting: The ranch is high fenced and has abundant whitetails, quail (both Blue Quail and Bobwhite) and other species including a healthy roosting turkey population. The extraordinary water distribution system makes Tres Arroyos a mecca for birds. The water features support populations of game and non-game wildlife alike and provide needed habitat requirements for quail chicks. The ranch participates in Texas Parks & Wildlife’s MLDP program and in 2009 implemented a year round protein feeding program to further its deer management efforts. Brush manipulation has been implemented in certain pasture areas to enhance succession, edge and huntability.
