It’s not often that “income-producing” and “beautiful” go together when talking about properties in Texas, but this 757 acre ranch in Dimmit County checks boxes for both. There is infrastructure in place to maintain a strong deer breeding and hunting program, along with plenty of country to raise livestock.
This offering is actually two neighboring ranches near the historic 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.

Both places are high-fenced with electric gates throughout the property and multiple breeder pens. Three stock tanks and multiple irrigated food plot areas provide ample water for both cattle and the trophy deer roaming the ranch. Wildlife on the ranch include quail, dove, whitetail, and blackbuck antelope. According to the owner, a 34-inch blackbuck buck has been taken on the ranch recently.
The ranch has two well-provisioned headquarter areas. The first features a 2 bed/1 bath house. With tile throughout, a full kitchen, and spacious living areas, it is the perfect balance between simplicity and ranch luxury. Perhaps the most compelling feature is the screened in porch, a perfect place to drink coffee and greet the day. Included in the sale of the ranch home is all furniture, television, two gun safes, dishes, and cutlery. Other improvements include a separate well and pumphouse with a covered, above-ground 3000-gallon tank for the house and breeder pens, covered cooking area, carport, storage shed, barn, and large covered storage for tractors and other rolling equipment.
The second headquarters has a 2 bed/2 bath home with 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. 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.
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 carved out of the Brush Country.
