We are extremely proud to offer for sale the Los Compañeros Ranch, an exceptional "turn-key" ranch property in sought after Stonewall County. This ranch offers great accommodations, attractive terrain features, live water, quality livestock grazing, and game fenced pastures stocked with trophy quality white-tail deer.
Los Compañeros Ranch is conveniently located approximately 17 miles northwest of Aspermont, Texas, on the north side of CR 350. The ranch is situated in northwest Stonewall County, approximately 80 miles southeast of Lubbock, 70 miles northwest of Abilene and about a 3 hours drive from the DFW Metroplex.
Los Compañeros is situated in the Texas Rolling Plains offering a variety of terrain features ranging from open fields, rolling prairie, rugged breaks, and attractive bottoms. The ranch is drained by the Salt Fork of the Brazos River and Salt Croton Creek, which provide scenic live water features. The Salt Fork meanders through areas of the east boundary of the ranch. Salt Croton Creek bisects the northeast portion of the ranch, where the ranch is characterized by rugged breaks where mule deer are spotted. Two good crossings along the creek provide access to those areas north of the creek. Numerous other seasonal draws and drainages cut through the property offering good cover for native wildlife and giving the ranch its scenic, broken and rolling appearance.
Soil types on the ranch are primarily fine sandy loams, with silt loams in the bottoms. Typical vegetation includes a variety of native grasses including buffalo grass, grama, bluestem, vine-mesquite, etc. Mesquite is scattered throughout the ranch in various concentrations. Cedar is found scattered along the side slopes of the many draws and more heavily concentrated in the northeast part of the ranch. Other forbes and woody species include hackberry, lotebush, sumac, ephedra and yucca. The turf of native grasses is in excellent condition. There have been no livestock grazing on the ranch for nearly a year. This period of rest, coupled with recent significant rainfall, has proven very beneficial for the grass turf. For the cattleman, the ranch is fenced and cross fenced into 9 main pastures with three sets of livestock pens. The estimated carrying capacity of the ranch is 450 animal units.
The ranch enjoys the benefit of two large areas of open fields that could easily be utilized for increased grazing capacity, dove fields and game food plots. The fields in the southeast part of the ranch total approximately 490 acres. The fields in the western part of the ranch total approximately 300 acres.
The Los Compañeros Ranch is very well watered. The ranch has the benefit of a water system fueled by four wells equipped with electric submersible pumps. These wells provide water to a network of buried water line throughout the majority of the ranch to livestock drinking troughs. Surface water features include the Salt Fork, Salt Croton Creek, seasonal holes of water in numerous other draws and drainages and approximately 15 earthen tanks.
The Los Compañeros was once owned by infamous quail hunter Boone Pickens and offers a very desirable habitat for wild bobwhite quail.
The Stonewall County area has a good reputation for producing quality native whitetail deer. The numerous earthen tanks offer waterfowl hunting opportunities and migratory dove hunting.
The ranch includes approximately 20 quality hunting blinds with protein feeders. For the quail hunter, the ranch includes many quail feeders scattered throughout the ranch. The recreational amenities of the ranch are enhanced by the 1,800 acre± game park, located in the central portion of the ranch. This high-fenced area is divided into three game fenced pastures loaded with trophy white-tail genetics.
