This 269 acre game ranch is part of "The Preserve on Indian Creek" , a professionally managed, 8,000 acre, high fenced exotic and big game hunting community. Outstanding hunting for whitetail, axis deer and Rio Grande turkey. Other species observed include elk, aoudad sheep, blackbuck antelope and fallow deer. (Some species may or may or may not be harvested from year to year). A consulting game biologist manages the wildlife, maintains the 1D1 Wildlife Exemption and makes harvest recommendations for the entire 8,000 acre enclosure. The wildlife are watered by an earthen stock tank and three troughs. High protein feed is dispensed from May through August from two 2000# and three 250# feeders. (All of the equipment conveys with the property).
High hills descend to deep draws and bottom land thick with cover, forage and browse. Pinon pine, live oak, shin oak, mountain laurel, persimmon and native grasses are abundant throughout the property. Prior to development, a brush control program removed the vast majority of undesirable mountain cedars. Two significant caves are located on the ranch (hence the ranch's name). One with a thriving bat colony, and the other said to be the largest privately owned cave in the county. There are several Indian camp sites rich with arrowheads, spear points and other artifacts.
Enjoyment of the ranch is anchored by the 1,600 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath furnished home built in 2007. A wide, covered porch wraps two sides of the home affording awe-inspiring views. The Infrastructure for the home, including dependable co-op electric service, satellite television service, water well with 2,500 gallon storage and an approved septic system, allows you to enjoy all the comforts of home. (Even the cellular service is outstanding).
Located approximately 24 miles southwest of Rocksprings, the ranch is offered at $525,000.
