Only 35 miles west of Kerrville in Kerr County, with paved road frontage on Hwy. 83, 13 miles north of Garven Store. Located approximately 3 miles from the private entry in the prestigious Y.O. Ranchlands gated community, on beautiful divide country that was once part of Captain Schreiner’s historic Y.O. Ranch.
Land: Gently rolling terrain with a mix of fertile bottom land and divide country with 100 ft. elevation change. Accessed via the private Ranchland roads, the high-quality land is covered with large, healthy Oaks and native grasses. The owner has removed most of the Cedar but property boundaries are left with cover for privacy. This ranch has not been hunted in 20 years and offers the most diverse hunting around. Open areas allow for exotic species to congregate and thrive, giving hunters an unmatched opportunity to take trophy exotics and Whitetail.
Wildlife: Over 1,200 Trophy Whitetail, Axis, Sika, Fallow, Blackbuck, Aoudad, and Turkey roam the famed 10,000+ acre community. The best hunting around offered on 77 acres is attributed to the Y.O. Ranchlands game management process. These animals are never over-pressured, always well fed, and careful management makes the hunting experience 1 of a kind. Additional information on wildlife can be found at YORanchlands.org.
