LAZY A RANCH
3,238± ACRES | BEE COUNTY | TEXAS
PROPERTY ID: 2976357 | $12,302,500
The ranch includes live water on the Aransas River, multiple towering live oaks, great accommodations, and excellent roads. From a game perspective there are fantastic quail fields, too many turkeys to count, some of the best low-fence deer hunting available with huge neighbors all low-fenced, great dove area with plenty of agriculture in the vicinity, and good fishing in the river. All of this less than three hours from Houston.
The Lazy A Ranch has a very diverse habitat across the ranch. Approximately half of the ranch is primarily live oak country with a mix of South Texas brush understory and native grasses. This area follows primarily the Aransas River bottom and the Spring Creek bottom that flows through the center of the property. The live oaks on this ranch are not your run of the mill oaks, but many are huge with some certified to be over 900 years old. Further the large oaks are not limited to a few areas but cover the ranch.
The whitetail deer on the property are abundant. The ranch has been managed to allow for deer to age properly and they have native low-fenced deer that are very good with at least one 160-class deer harvested this year. The deer have lots of varied habitat to allow for them to thrive and the ranch basically is surrounded by a 60,000± acre ranch on two sides and an 18,000-acre ranch on the other two sides which also have strict adherence to managing the deer to promote an improved native deer herd.
As many people know, Southern Bee County has been traditionally considered some of the best quail country in the state. Grasses grow thick with intermittent brush to provide the ideal habitat for bobwhites and it is just open enough to run dogs and rigs around the property. This area is premium quail country and due to higher rain totals—37 average—than much of South Texas, can be generally be a more consistent area for having successful quail hatches.
