La Perla Viejo Ranch, 1,248 acres Zapata Co. (full or partial ownership)
Serious whitetail hunters have a rare opportunity to invest in the historic La Perla Viejo Ranch, 1,248 acres of gently rolling brush country with three lakes in Zapata County. Located just 30 minutes from the Laredo International Airport, this high fenced ranch boasts South Texas' very best hunting and fishing. In addition to trophy whitetails, the ranch is well- populated with blue and bobwhite quail, mourning dove, ducks and predators. For fishermen, trophy bass are plentiful on the ranch and Falcon Lake is nearby.
After years of meticulous whitetail deer herd management as a private hunting ranch, in 2010, the owners agreed to allow five small groups of hunting clients. Infrastructure includes a lodge, bunk house, cooking porch, cleaning racks, and top drive vehicles to accommodate hunters. A 50+ acre is stocked with game fish which allows the flexibility to offer "cast and blast" packages to clients. The two smaller lakes also provide excellent waterfowl hunting. This unique hunting operation has fantastic income potential.
An extensive feeding program and watering system complement the native forage and three dirt tanks on the property. A two- inch water line traverses almost the entire length of the ranch providing reliable water for both man and game animal. All weather roads, senderos and right-of-ways traverse the property allowing easy access to all parts of the ranch. Feeder pens, feeders, watering stations and blinds (including Africa-style in ground bow blinds) are in place.
The topography is gently rolling brush with elevation changes from 460' to 550' (the second highest elevation in the county). Awe-inspiring sunsets over the mountains of northern Mexico are especially magnificent. Sunsets over the mountains of northern Mexico are awe inspiring, particularly from the fall through the winter. The current owner plans to take La Perla from a boutique hunting becoming the destination of choice for America's discriminating hunters. The ranch and all improvements are being offered at $2,350/acre. Partial ownership is also available. As part owner, you will benefit from the equity appreciation while you enjoy the diversity of outdoor experience that only south Texas can offer.
