Location & Description: This 1,650 acre hunting ranch is located approximately 40 miles north of Del Rio and 40 miles south of I-10 and Sonora in Val Verde County, Texas off Dolan Creek Road. This unique property lies in a region where the Edwards Plateau converges with the Rio Grande Plains, lending to diverse terrain that includes high bluffs with spectacular views, deep canyons, and flatlands with rich soil. Surrounded by large neighboring tracts and nestled between canyons, this ranch offers great privacy. It is located just 10 miles from the magnificent Dolan Falls Preserve in the Devils River State Natural Area. The ranch was originally part of the land tracts owned by C.B. “Dutch” Wardlaw who founded Production Wool & Mohair Company in 1923. The company produced up to seven million pounds of wool and mohair annually during its peak years in the 1940s. A major pipeline corridor runs through the property, creating open hunting or grazing area. It also presents a future income opportunity for landowners for any new pipeline construction through the corridor. Three pipelines have come through the ranch in the past five years.
Water: This property has a large pond/tank in the upper northwest corner of the property, as well as various water troughs scattered throughout the property. A seasonal creek also runs through the property, a tributary of Middle Dolan Creek.
Land: The topography is diverse, ranging from high bluffs and rolling hills to flatlands with rich black soil. Vegetative cover includes a variety of oaks, junipers, mesquite, and lush native grasses perfect for livestock grazing. The creek bed offers dense cover for wildlife.
Wildlife: This ranch offers abundant whitetail, Rio Grande turkey, quail, dove, fox, and other native game species. It also offers fantastic free range exotics including axis, aoudad, wild hogs, and a few sika deer that provide the ranch with excellent year-round hunting opportunities.
Improvements: There are several hunting blinds and feeders located throughout this property, as well as a good road system that provides access across the ranch. One road leads to a high point on the ranch that boasts incredible views of the property and offers a potential build site for a hunting lodge.
