The Axis Valley Ranch is an incredible opportunity to own a historical, family-owned ranch less than 10 minutes from Rocksprings. The ranch has been in the same family for over 90 years and the care and management over the years is clearly evident when viewing. Extensive brush clearing and balanced grazing efforts have produced a showplace ranch with minimal cedar, good grasses and topsoil, and some of the best wildlife habitat seen in the region. The rolling topography and wide, extensive wet weather creek along the western edge produces Hill Country views that are a true sight to behold. All wildlife pictures were taken on the property and, as evidenced by them, there may not be a better place to hold and grow large free ranging axis. The easy access from town, the topography, the improved habitat, all topped off with loads of wildlife and recreational opportunities create a true investment grade ranch property that should not be missed.

Land: The ranch has an abundance of rolling topography with scattered oak mottes and wet weather draws crafting an ideal Hill Country setting. The most notable stunning feature of the ranch is wet weather creek that runs along the western boundary and is an offshoot of Hackberry Creek, just a few miles to the North.
Water: There are numerous wet weather draws on the ranch with springs and ponds along the western creek found during wet seasons. The seller reports good quality ground water in the area with most livestock wells typically drilled to 350ft. While there is not an existing well on the property, the seller plans to drill one soon or will work with buyer for well allowance.
Wildlife: Excellent habitat and abundance of wildlife found throughout. Quality and number of axis deer are particularly evident with blackbuck, turkey, and whitetail also on the ranch. Excellent recreational hunting opportunities exist as this ranch has had very little pressure.
Location/Access: Location and access are excellent with the ranch being located approximately 5 miles Southwest of Rocksprings, TX off good roads, accessible to town in 10 minutes. Some established gas well roads make the entire property accessible nearly at all times, with plenty of other internal trail roads.
Grazing Management: Grazing and land management efforts date back over 90 years with past generations chaining oak and cedar, balanced grazing efforts, and even being involved on past soil conservation boards. While not certified, the ranch has been practicing nearly fully organic principles since 2000 with no chemical sprays in the last 10 years. There is good topsoil on most of the ranch with black loam on the surface and caliche underneath. Prickly pear and cedar have been historically grubbed, burned, and further controlled with Spanish mutton goats. A wide variety of grasses are present with Curly Mesquite, Blue Grama, Buffalo, Native Bermuda, Green Sprangle Top, Winter Grass (spear grass),and Side Oats Grama.
