This 809-acre hunting and recreational Empire ranch offers a hunting experience like no other. The Whitetail deer herd has produced several bucks over 200 Boone and Crockett and includes genetics that have been released onto the ranch. With the MLDP Whitetail deer management program that has been in practice for several years, the Empire Ranch is at the top of its class in South Texas’ premier deer hunting ranches.

The ranch features an incredible lodge that sits amongst majestic South Texas brush overlooking the Choke Canyon Reservoir. The property is located just 23± miles west of Three Rivers, Texas, 71± miles south of San Antonio and 93± miles northwest of Corpus Christi. 

Inside the white-rock lodge you will find elegant rustic designs and stained concrete floors. The lodge features five guest rooms and five and one-half bathrooms and can sleep up to 18 guests. There are several relaxing and entertainment areas including a pool table, shuffleboard table and gourmet kitchen and bar. Choke Canyon Reservoir can be seen from a large porch that spans the length of the lodge. A concrete patio leads to a heated in-ground pool. Next to the lodge is a large pavilion with an outdoor kitchen, bar-b-que pits and a fire pit. 

Two guest cabins allow for additional guest accommodations, and there is a foreman’s home, a two-bay storage barn and a four-bay equipment barn.
