Property Description:

It’s not often that “income-producing” and “beautiful” go together when talking about properties in Texas, but the Bar-T Ranch in Dimmit County checks boxes for both. At approximately 288 acres, this ranch has the infrastructure in place to maintain a strong deer breeding and hunting program, along with plenty of country to raise livestock.

The ranch is divided into three main pastures, all high fenced, and has excellently maintained breeder pens at the headquarters—two 3.5 acre pens and one 8 acre pen. All main gates on the property, including the front, are electric. There are multiple food plot areas irrigated with field sprinklers, and an approximately 0.815 acre tank provides water and good potential dove hunting. A Carrizo well and two domestic wells provide water to the property.

Wildlife on the ranch include quail, dove, whitetail, and approximately 25 blackbuck antelope. According to the owner, a 34-inch blackbuck buck has been taken on the ranch recently.

The headquarters has everything needed to run a successful hunting and breeding program, plus the potential for some extra passive income. There is a large building across from the main house that is currently used as a laundromat, with four full bathrooms and four washer/dryer hookups. Attached is a large covered area for rolling stock, a covered deer processing pad with a winch, and a walk-in freezer in a separate storage area with roll-up door. Between the house and pens is a shipping container that has been converted into additional living quarters. From the main gate, a road leads past headquarters to a possible 41-spot RV park, perfect for the continuing traffic being generated by Eagle Ford oil and gas production. There are currently only 13 spots with power, but the space remains for expansion.

The 2 bed/2 bath home has ample space for sleeping, cooking, and entertaining. There is a large covered patio with a built-in rock fire pit, covered back porch, and a carport large enough for several vehicles and additional equipment.

For history buffs, the ranch is located on the original townsite of Las Vegas, Texas. The old right-of-way from the San Antonio, Uvalde and Gulf Railway is clearly visible at the front of the ranch off 468.

With ample grazing, cover, water, and senderos, this ranch is ideal for both livestock and wildlife. The added amenities are there for an entrepreneurial ranch owner to earn some additional income by capitalizing on the considerable energy activity in the area. Throw in some colorful history, and you have the manifestation of the Texas landowner’s dream firmly carved out of the Brush Country.
