west Texas Middle Concho Hunting Ranch
The Carter Bacon Rind Hunting and Cattle ranch consists of 320 acres of good grassland, rich soil, and great cover for wildlife right on the Middle Concho. This highly sought-after, Irion county land is located in the western part of the County in the heart of the golden triangle of west Texas hunting country and includes approximately one mile of the Middle Concho. It sits 23 miles north of Barnhart on the west side of Highway 163. It is also situated 33 miles west of Mertzon, 28 miles south of Sterling City, 92 miles from Midland and 54 miles west of San Angelo Regional Airport making it easy access for out-of-state hunters.
Surrounded by large ranches, this well-managed ranch is prime for deer hunters, quail hunters, and turkey hunters alike. Located in the middle of the western Edwards Plateau, the ranch sits in the Middle Concho Watershed where the best deer are found. With the fertile soil of the Middle Concho and the above-ground ponds created from great water wells and from the Middle Concho springs, wildlife is drawn to the oasis. The Middle Concho Watershed receives flow from more than 7 west Texas counties and the area receives 21.25 inches of rain annually on average.
The area is also known for extraordinary underground water in abundance from the Dockum minor aquifer and the major Edwards Trinity Aquifer. This ranch is well watered with 1 strong water well which is equipped with a submersible solar pump, a concrete drinker, a covered water reservoir, and a dirt tank. There is another well near the entrance of the ranch that does not have a pump.
The Carter Bacon Rind Ranch is known for its improved trophy white-tail deer. With the location of the ranch being situated in the Golden Triangle, the deer are very large in rack size and overall mass. Recently harvested bucks have scored 175 and higher. The hunting program on this ranch has been well managed for decades. Historically, hunting has produced a nice income from the hunting operation. There are three hunting settings equipped with a nice fenced area for the feeders and very nice, oversized fiberglass hunting blinds. Deer feeders and protein feeders convey with the sale as well as the recently purchased double-sized, fiberglass blinds that are on the premise. Other species of wildlife found here include Rio Grande turkey, Blue Quail, Bobwhite quail, and dove. The Middle Concho riverbed is full of turkey with the large Pecan trees providing superb roosting and the abundant water providing a haven for them to thrive.
The elevation is mostly level across the entire ranch. As you enter in the northeastern corner you drop less than 40' and then 97 of the ranch is level at an elevation of 2280' with the exception of the immediate riverbed and a higher point on the north side. Please see the interactive map for elevation lines.
The soils are great for grazing, wildlife feed, and cover. The conditions are practical for improvements such as seeding. Soils include Rio Concho silty clay loam 2w, which is moist with a 0-2 slope. These soils may be used for cultivated crops, pasture, range, woodland, and wildlife.
The ranch would make a nice working ranch for livestock in addition to the hunting component as it is level ground with many good grazing grasses, fertile soil, and plenty of ground water. There is an existing Nrcs contract to spray mesquite and prickly pear for 2021. The contract is transferrable to the new owner if so desired. You will be pleased to know the ranch is currently under an agriculture tax exemption and has existing income.
In this region of Texas are a variety of good grasses, both tall varieties as well as short grasses, which is a unique situation to this particular area because of variation in precipitation. Some of these good grasses include Curly mesquite, Vine-mesquite, Tabosagrass, Sideoats grama, Texas grama, Black grama, varieties of bluestem, Buffalo grass, Texas winter grass, Eastern gamagrass, Hall panicum, dropseed varieties, Green sprangletop, and many other strong west Texas grasses. You can readily find shrubs such as sumac, acacia, Honey mesquite trees, and Algerita which provide food and cover as well as multiple varieties of forbes including filaree, sage, salvia, and Tallow weed. Redberry juniper, Mormon tea, bunch grasses, and other shrubs also provide cover for deer and quail and all other wildlife.
The ranch is being offered with all owned minerals which are thought to be 50 and there is production on the ranch. Proof of funds is required for all showings. Please see the interactive map and video at and call for more information. More photos and videos to come soon.
