Quail Crossing Ranch is comprised of a distinct 815± acres in northwest Zapata county. The unique landscape offers a wide range of appeal to all outdoor enthusiasts. There is dense diverse brush for the deer hunter, improved open pasture for the cattleman and sweeping native grasslands for upland quail hunting. The ranch is a very manageable jewel for the area. The landscape is adorned with gentle hills with the silence often broken by the familiar call of bobwhite and scaled quail in the distance. The one thing you will not hear is the bellow of cattle, solely due to forward-thinking grazing management. The ranch has been deferred of cattle and deer hunting for the last three years to improve the generation of native grasses and forbs for both wildlife and agricultural purposes, yet still enjoys an agricultural exemption. The estimated animal units per acre is one to 30-acres. There are three seasonal ponds located across the property. There is talk of a Zapata city waterline to connect into Quail Crossing, timeframe unknown. Currently, the primary surface water is found near the front gate and a stone’s throw away from the electricity source and overnight bunk facility. The bunk could be converted into a lighted processing and cold storage area. A more comfortable residence may be built or delivered at a later date, should one wish to do so. There are two sets of long-standing cattle pens, one of which has a barn conveniently adjacent for the warehousing of any desirable equipment. The ranch is in such close proximity to Laredo, TX (42 miles) it offers the opportunity for one to stay in town and enjoy comfort of local restaurants and/or utilize the international airport. Also, further south is the city of Zapata, the county airport, and world-class bass fishing on Falcon Lake, a maximum of 36-miles away! Quail Crossing has highway access, which is always a cherished commodity and even more so with a limited road system in south Texas. No oil and gas minerals available. Overall, if you’re searching for a manageable ranch that has a wide range of opportunity in south Texas, this is it!
