Details - Information last confirmed on November 10, 2020

Location: Northern Duval County, Hwy 59 and west of Hwy 281, near the corners of McMullen and Live Oak counties. The ranch is about a 1 hour and 15 minute drive west of Corpus Christi.

Description:

The terrain is varied and has a very diverse habitat composition within the bounds of its perimeter high fence. With nice topographic relief present on the ranch, you find a unique mix of low lands and creek drainages along with nice hill tops, all of which provide multiple soil types, with excellent mixed brush species throughout. The hill tops are comprised of Guajillo, Cenizo, Blackbrush, Mountain Laurel, Guayacon among numerous other native species. The low lands, valleys and drainages are covered in Bull Mesquite, Lime Prickly Ash, Guajillo, Coma and other high protein brush. The ranch is covered in mostly native grasses , and in excellent condition with no cattle since 2004, which has also provided great nesting and fawning cover.

Improvements:

The Loma Alta has modest housing improvements consisting of an small 3 bedroom, 2 bath house. Wildlife type improvements include protein/cotton seed feeding locations, each with 500 gallon water trough for supplemental watering. There are 5 acre high fenced food plots as well, though they are not currently planted. All hunting blinds and feeders will convey with the ranch.

Water:

The ranch is watered with 2 active water wells and 3 windmills, and has 3 surface tanks, and two of which are fed by windmill overflows. Research in the immediate area on known ranches shows that additional wells would most likely be viable in the 400-490 foot depth
Wildlife:

The Loma Alta owners implemented a strict management plan in 2008. The ranch has harvested native deer up to 203 “ B & C. The ranch consistently produces mature bucks over 160” with 3-4 between 170” and 190” annually. The density is roughly 1 adult to 25 acres and the manager increased protein and cotton seed stations to 1/300 acres. In 2007, 3 DMP pens were built. 30 native South Texas does were TTT’d from a famous native deer ranch in Catarina, TX, in 2014 and released on the ranch as well.

The Bobwhite Quail populations have been very good and specific areas have been opened up and maintained for quail hunting. The family does not regularly hunt quail, but there are many areas where brush management could offer superb habitat for much more bird hunting. Rio Grande Turkeys are also abundant, with good roosting habitat along the many drainages. The population of turkeys seems to be very good, and there is limited hunting pressure.
