The Weldon Family Ranch is located about halfway between Rocksprings (groceries, some restaurants, gas and supplies) and Barksdale off CR310, an all-weather caliche surface road. As a crow flies, about 15 miles to either town.
No live surface water on the ranch. Two small caliche pit impoundments hold water for livestock and wildlife. Additionally, one well has water piped to specific livestock water troughs. “Cutting Pen Draw”, a wet-weather draw moves significant water during heavy rains but quickly dries out with the exception of a few shallow holes.
Even though the ranch is remote, very lightly traveled CR310 bisects the ranch offering a future owner the ability to easily subdivide the ranch. The eastern portion of the ranch is very diverse in its terrain. Multiple draws and hills covered heavily in trees create an abundance of natural cover, making the hunting in much of the eastern side up close and personal. A large cave is located on the ranch as well.
The western side offers more of a gentle roll with with large elevated flats covered in mesquite, persimmon and juniper. Cutting Pen Draw meanders through the ranch from east to west leaving several tall rock bluffs in its wake. Elevations range from 2,000’ in the bottom of Cutting Pen Draw to a high hilltop of 2212’ on the Eastern side.
There is an original old rock house (exact age unknown) settled among large Live Oaks. The house has a kitchen/dining area, a bathroom and a bunk room that sleeps 6 comfortably. A strong well is located on the property that provides water to one of the caliche tanks and several livestock watering troughs. There is also a large rock cistern, a set of sorting pens and several barns and sheds.
The Weldon Family Ranch offering is unique in that it has been hunted primarily by the family since the 1950’s. It’s remote, yet accessible location lends itself to a true hunting experience and can help you escape from the hustle and bustle of life. A small rock home serves hunters comfortably. The land itself is diverse and offers a variety of hunting and recreational opportunities including a large cave hidden on the ranch. The agricultural evaluation is in place keeping taxes low at $1,615.46 for 2015. If you’re looking for a great Edwards County hunting ranch that’s ready to go, this one is definitely worth a look!
