+/-1,000 acres in Frio County—Pearsall, TX
DESCRIPTION: The Novem (to the 9’s) Ranch is just that! It is a highly improved and manicured, extremely well-watered, high fenced turnkey ranch being offered for sale with everything you need to entertain your family or numerous clients. It is all native brush and drives way bigger than the actual acreage. This ranch has been owned by the same family for 15 years and they have never stopped adding to the details year after year to make every aspect of this ranch refined, fun and easy for all of their family outings.
HISTORY: In 1918 the Daughters of The American Revolution placed historic granite markers along the “El Comino Real”. One hundred years later, one of those markers still stands on the Novem Ranch.
IMPROVEMENTS: The improvements on this ranch leave nothing else to be considered. They include a 10,000 sq. ft. 10 br, 12 bath main lodge complete with an indoor gaming area and a grand outdoor entertainment area overlooking the lake, a 2 br, 2 bath foreman’s house, commercial grade equipment for making sausage with smokehouse, horse barn, dog kennels, equipment barns, 14 deer pens, 5 acre soft release pen, 1 br guide cabin, 10 deer blinds with corn and protein feeders, 30 quail riser sprinklers for water and quail feeders, numerous quail strips, three water wells, 4 irrigation pivots, 5 constant level ponds, three phase electricity, fuel storage tanks, 2 feed bens, 2 water storage tanks, and shooting range.
WATER: This is an incredibly well-watered ranch with 2 carrizo wells and 1 domestic well. The 2 carrizo wells are equipped with 50 hp motors and do approx. 350 gpm. There is really not any area of the ranch you can’t get water to. The main lake adjoining the lodge is a 7.5 acre-25’ deep constant level lake and large enough to enjoy with your jet ski or just swim around. Not only does it have 4 different pivot irrigation systems to irrigate the fields, it also has pipe ran underground all over the ranch to keep the 5 ponds/lakes full and 4” pipe ran to most of the larger senderos with risers to connect to so you can use reels to water the entire sendero. There is also 30+ quail risers which they use as sprinklers for the quail to water and have cover. An additional 8 water troughs are also scattered throughout the ranch. The improvements around the house have 2 large water storage tanks to ensure you don’t run out of water.
HUNTING: The hunting on the ranch is extremely exciting because you don’t know what might walk out! From a trophy class white-tail buck to Axis, Blackbuck, Fallow, Gemsbok-oryx, Redstag, javelina or hogs. There are 10 Atascosa blinds set up across the ranch to hunt from all with feeder stations and water close by. The quail hunting is also first class and they have every necessary element for the quail to continue to strive with plenty feeders and water stations specifically for them spread out perfectly across the ranch. The turkey also thrive on the ranch because of the large native brush and abundant water.
FISHING: If you like to fish then this is also another aspect of the entertainment of this ranch. The owners stocked every tank with 6-10 lb. bass back in 2013 and continue to make sure the level of bait fish is sufficient to keep them growing. They also have piped water to every tank to ensure a constant oxygen and water level.
LOCATION: The ranch is located approx. 20 minutes south of Pearsall on CR 3871 which can be accessed either by FM 1582 or Hwy. 97.
