200 Acres Duval Co.Duval County
This 200-acre hunting and cattle ranch is perfectly designed to do both, with about half the acreage in native brush and half in improved pastures.
The current owners, who have owned the ranch for the last 16 years, have created a park-like scenery where they built a large pond in a wet weather creek that flows through the back brush pasture. Large cedar elms, hackberries, and mesquite trees line the banks of this pond. It’s beautiful when it’s full and still pretty when it’s dry. All this with end-of-the-County-Road access and privacy.
Improvements: The ranch has a converted dry van trailer into an air-conditioned bunkhouse and kitchen with a porch on one side. A clean bathroom separate from the bunkhouse, an enclosed tool room, and an outdoor covered cooking area. There’s also an approximately 20,000-gallon water cistern, kept full by an electric submersible pump in the water well located inside the fenced camp yard. This water well also serves to keep three ponds filled with water piped from the well and four water troughs.
The ranch is also cross-fenced into six pastures with a drive alley for ease of cattle rotation and a set of cattle pens that are centrally located but out of the hunting area.
Wildlife: This ranch has an abundance of Whitetails, turkey, hogs, quail, and plenty of doves coming into the water ponds. Waterfowl are commonly seen at these ponds as well.
Terrain: There’s a slightly rolling terrain on this property, with the soils consisting of mainly sandy loam, red sandy soil on hills, and darker clay soils in the creek bed and low areas. The brush is good quality with lots of granjeno, guayacan, and other beneficial browse. Big mesquites, hackberry, ebony, anacua, huisache, and cedar elms are also found here.
