Domino West Ranch – Farm to Market Road 1796 , D’Hanis, TX 78850 – Medina County
Description: The Domino West is the definition of a fine Hill Country ranch. Located in the northwestern portion of Medina County, the ranch is the perfect combination of open grassland, mature oak trees and scenic views. Approximately 19 miles of road system traverse the three separate high-fenced pastures. Each pasture is well watered with multiple troughs and earthen ponds. The focus of the operation has been the prized whitetail herd, and other trophy exotic game, with multiple deer scoring over 200BC, this absolutely turn-key ranch will convey with all blinds, feeders, furniture and equipment.
Improvements: The headquarters is outfitted with a hotel-style lodge. A concrete patio connects the four separate bedrooms to the detached kitchen and dining area. An outdoor pavilion is set up to entertain with a large bar, BBQ pit and bathroom. A rock fire pit sits in the walkway between the lodge and outdoor pavilion. On the opposite side of the compound you will find a very spacious 1 bed/1 bath owners cabin apartment. Other improvements include a well designed deer processing facility with a walk-in cooler, two fully-enclosed metal equipment barns, bulk feed storage and a shooting range.
Water: There are a total of three Edwards water wells on the property, two electric and a newly-drilled solar well. These wells service the multiple water stations on the ranch, and are connected by miles of 1-inch Schedule 40 Poly Pipe. One of the most unique features on the ranch are the man-made earthen ponds scattered across the property. These ponds have water piped to them and are set with floats to maintain a constant level.
Wildlife: After decades of heavy management, the whitetail herd at Domino Ranch boasts world class genetics. A definite highlight, this herd means trophy class animals yearly. Aside from whitetail, red stag, axis, and black buck can all be found on the property in large numbers. The amount of game animals on this ranch is astounding.
Terrain & Habitat: The ranch encompasses the best of the Texas Hill Country terrain. From gentle oak-lined bottoms to high hilltops, there is over 300 feet of elevation change across the property. The Lookout is set on top of the ranches highest point, and easily accessible by vehicle. From this vantage point, the views defy description. A good portion of the ranch has been cleared and manicured. This has resulted in tall lush grass growing along most roads and open fields. These open spaces are dotted with large oak and other hardwood trees. Much of the ranch has been left untouched with thick native brush, and excellent browse for wildlife.
