Congratulations to the team of Mark Connally, Carlos Klutts and Wallace Rogers with Texas Heritage Brokers, Inc., for their sale of 7,045 acres in Uvalde County, Texas. This sale occurred on May 2, 2017, and was submitted through the Lands of America Comparable Sales Program.
Located in Texas Hill Country about 100 miles west of San Antonio, Indian Creek Ranch is a well-balanced and well-managed property that’s set up for recreation, hunting and cattle. The landscape here is typical South Texas brush, ranging from bull mesquites throughout the property’s various valleys and gullies to guaillo trees dotting the hilltops.
The ranch is high-fenced and supports native whitetail genetics, as well as improved genetics that are released yearly. Indian Creek Ranch has been game-managed for over ten years and offers excellent dove, duck, quail and varmint hunting along with its herds of whitetail, Axis and Blackbuck.
Eight lakes scattered throughout the property offer the chance to cast for bass, bluegill, catfish and crappie. Indian Creek is a large wet weather creek that traverses the ranch. A modest three-bedroom ranch home offers comfortable living space and room for entertaining.
