The historic Circle E Ranch is a high-fenced hunting ranch located in one of the most sought after areas near Houston and College Station. The ranch is one of the more unique properties in the area and is a perfect combination for the outdoorsman, conservationist and cowman alike.

The ranch consists of 2,096 manicured acres with a water feature around every corner. There are fertile coastal fields mixed in with thick brush, ideal cover for whitetails and exotics. There is a 60-acre lake located in the middle of the property that is home to outstanding fishing and duck hunting. The entire ranch is high fenced with multiple cross sections for managing the cattle and exotic stocks. There is an exceptional road system on the ranch that includes roads along every fence for easy maintenance. Full turn-key property with all animals and rolling stock being sold and ready for move in.

Habitat

The rolling terrain of the ranch is a perfect mix of large oak trees and towering pine. The pastures are all in improved grasses and provide plentiful grazing opportunities for cattle and many of the exotics. On the edges of the brush are food plots that are perfectly located near bedding areas. Mooring Creek divides the property, and large oak trees are lined on its banks making for some of the best whitetail habitat on the ranch. Across the property you will find 16 bodies of water that are home to wood ducks and migrating waterfowl in the Fall and Winter months. These bodies of water are also great habitat for the Père David’s deer, elk, red deer and Asian water buffalo. 

Wildlife

Circle E Ranch is home to 25 species of native and exotic wildlife. 

Exotics: These animals are intensely managed for hunting and conservation. Many of the exotics on the ranch are highly desirable species, with females being more valuable than the males; these species are know as “Super Exotics.” Ranches across Texas are seeing impressive returns on super exotics. Many of these species are becoming lost in their native lands and only found on Texas ranches. The ranch is cross fenced for exotic management purposes. 

Whitetails: The property has been highly managed with highly improved whitetail genetics. The owner has released bred does, bucks and fawns to improve the genetics of the herd. It is easily noticed that these are not your typical Central East Texas whitetails. 

Hunting: The ranch specializes in corporate hunting. The lodge can accommodate both large and small groups of executives. Hunting tactics range from spot and stalk to safari style, or enjoy a comfortable hunt in one of the large hunting blinds. 

Improvements

Lodge: The owner spared no expense when building the lodge on the Circle E. The lodge has seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Many of the suites have large bathrooms with jetted tubs and large showers. There is a cook’s kitchen located just off of the dining area with granite countertops. The great room has 18-foot ceilings with a large fireplace and plenty of room to display your trophies with a wet bar located within. Around the rock fire pit you will find plenty of room to celebrate your hunt with friends and family. There is a large bunk room located upstairs that is perfect for children.

Water: There are 16 bodies of water on the ranch with one being a 60-acre fishing lake and many of them being over four acres. Off the main lake there is a pivot that is supplied with water from the lake to irrigate the coastal field. Mooring Creek transects the property providing great cover and water in the wet season. All of the lakes and ponds have been intensely managed for trophy bass and striper fishing.
