LOCATION: In a quiet corner of eastern Atascosa County near the Wilson County line and only 42 miles south of downtown lies the Prieto Creek Ranch. Pleasanton is 15 miles to the west, Floresville is 18 miles to the east and the small community of McCoy is about 5 miles to the south. Access to the Prieto is from Treys Creek Road, a quiet county-maintained road rarely driven by anyone other than local property owners.
LAND: This side of Atascosa county has a highly productive soil composition and historically receives higher rainfall totals creating exceptional ag-use value. Analyzing the primary uses of the neighboring properties gives a good indication of just how diverse and productive this area is. To the east is row crop and hay production. To the west is a cow-calf livestock producer and to the north is a hunting/grazing combination ranch. All contiguous neighbors are similar or larger in size with no small tract subdivision. The ranch is rectangular in shape, 2460 ft. wide and 3500 ft deep. The entire perimeter is low fenced w/ 5 strand barbed wire.
Seasonal Prieto Creek enters the ranch near the northeast corner and meanders south the entire length of the ranch. Though seasonal, the creek holds shallow pools of water most of the year. Flanked by huge Live Oak and Elm trees, the creek bottom would be considered the “good stuff” by any outdoor enthusiast and what makes this property truly unique. A casual creek hike is sure to produce that “magical” feel you get when you are surrounded by raw natural beauty.
Wildlife management and hunting on the ranch is the main event. Having been used for cattle grazing in the past and not hunted in over a decade, this property is loaded with turkey, deer, pigs, varmint and dove. The creek bottom is a natural travel corridor that funnels game onto the ranch and the diverse south Texas brush on the ranch provides the essential cover that these animals need. In addition to the creek there are 2 stock ponds on either end of the ranch. Ideal for fishing and dove hunting, these tanks are assets that create additional recreational opportunities. According to a reputable source, in the past 18 years these tanks have been dry once. This property is one of the “game-iest” places of this size this Broker has ever seen. Newly installed feeding stations, deer blinds and concrete wildlife water troughs make it turn-key for a buyer wanting a diverse hunting property loaded with critters.
IMPROVEMENTS: Though void of structural improvements, there is a newly constructed entrance, custom gate and 16 ft. wide limestone base road. This road leads to an interior, private homesite area surrounded by huge Bull mesquite and live oak trees. The “heavy lifting” of bringing in utilities for your vertical improvement has been taken care of. Underground electricity has been installed to the homesite as well as an underground McCoy Water Supply water line. There are (2) New HB hunting blinds, and (2) wildlife feed stations each consisting of (1) 600 lbs. stand & fill corn and (1) 1000 lbs. protein Texas Wildlife Supply feeder. These feed stations are fenced to protect your feed dollars. There is also 3500+ feet of underground waterline supplying water to 3 new concrete wildlife troughs strategically located throughout the property. Just in case the creek dries up, or the permanent tanks dry up, or if you don’t like the taste of the crystal clear McCoy WSC water, there is an additional shallow water well that could potentially be put back into operation. To say the least, the Prieto Creek Ranch is well watered!
If you are in the market for a cool hunting place minutes from downtown with primo south Texas brush, oaks as big as your kitchen table with tons of critters running around, you need to come see the Prieto Creek Ranch.
