San Bernard Ranch is a working cattle ranch with outstanding deer and duck hunting only 65 miles from downtown Houston. Huge oak and pecan trees are spread across the property, which boasts 2.7 miles of San Bernard River frontage. Linville Creek runs through the ranch as well. Extensive electrical work has already been done on site. Improvements include a small ranch house, barns and working pens. The ranch can be split into two 1,640± and 1,549± acre tracts.
Eight miles of limestone road wind throughout San Bernard Ranch. Electricity is available on over 90 percent of the property. Three-phase power has been run to the middle of the property to support an irrigation well. There is a clean three-bedroom, two-bath, two-car-garage ranch house and two concrete-floor barns: one 70’x40’ with two 70’x20’ leans and a 30’x30’ horse barn with small lean. Additionally, two equipment sheds serve the property, 125’x20’ and 100’x30’ respectively. There is also a 30’x30’ skinning shed with concrete floor. There are 75 acres of Bermuda and bluestem grass. A 300+ herd can be run on the property year round with minimal feeding. To that end, large cow pens with scales convey; several traps around the pens and cross fencing creating eight different pastures round out the operation.
Habitat and Vegetation
Large trees including mature oaks and pecans line the river and are scattered throughout the property along with mesquite and native browse. The habitat supports excellent hunting. Hunters on San Bernard Ranch enjoy an extended whitetail season (MLDP Level III) plus tons of wild hogs, good dove hunting and superb duck hunting on Linville Creek including wood ducks, mallards, mottled ducks, teal, gadwall and more.

On top of ample well access, eight miles of live water snake through the property. Three miles of the San Bernard River front runs through the ranch as well as over five miles of Linville Creek which often creates several small ponds as well as a two-acre lake which lends itself to duck hunting.
