Description: Happy Vally Ranch South is the southeastern 130+/- acre portion of the Happy Valley Ranch (675+/- acres). This property features a great combination of heavily wooded acreage which consists of scattered oak, hackberry, cedar, and mesquite, and open pasture with some cultivation. It offers numerous potential building sites with electric utility on-site, rolling landscape with scenic views, reliable underground water source, and potential mineral ownership.
Wildlife & Hunting: The area is known for quality hunting and the property has only been lightly hunted over the last 3 years. Whitetail deer, turkey, hog, and varmint all call this area home, and dove are equally as plentiful. With some native sunflower food plots established the dove hunting could be lights out. Quail have been observed on the property and with minimal amounts of prickly pear this is an ideal ranch for working dogs.
Wildlife Habitat: Numerous perennial tree and shrub forms of woody stem browse are found throughout the ranch and include species such as hackberry, bumelia, agerita, and mesquite. Combined with beneficial forbs and native grasses, the property provides plentiful food sources and excellent cover. Some areas of cultivated land provide deeper soils and are perfect locations for establishing wildlife food plots.
Pastures & Grazing: Overall the pastures have a good stand of native grasses, and have not been overgrazed under current ownership. There’s a portion of two fields included on the ranch that measure approximately 50 and 7.5 acres in size.
Water: There are water wells on the neighboring property to the west. The owners have consulted with a local water well drilling contractor and it is believed that water wells could be successfully drilled if desired.
Terrain: Approximately 50% of the ranch is heavily to moderately wooded with scattered oak elm, hackberry, cedar, and mesquite. The remaining 50% is primarily native pasture and cultivated land.
Fencing & Road Frontage: The east perimeter along FM 1086 and south perimeter along CR 190 are both fenced. The north and west boundaries are not fenced at this time.
Easements: An electric transmission line and pipeline easement cross the ranch from north to southwest and provide a clear means of travel across the property and sendero for hunting.
