Texas Ranch Land for Sale

Texas ranch lands are located throughout the entire state, but mostly outside of urban areas.  While located away from metropolitan areas, ranch lands in Texas can be as little as five miles (or less) outside of bigger cities.  For example, in smaller metropolitan areas like Waco, land for ranches might be as close as only three to five miles from the center of town. 

Whereas in places like Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, or Houston, buyers may have to drive 45-60 miles from the center of the city to find land for ranching.  When searching for ranch land in Texas, the rule of thumb is - the bigger the area, the farther away from town you'll have to search in order to get the land and seclusion of a ranching lifestyle.

South Texas Ranches

south texas ranches for saleSouth Texas ranches for sale are generally classified as the "triangular" area from Del Rio, Texas to San Antonio Texas, and then southeast to Rockport.  The landscape (thorny plants and vegetation) within this southern "triangle" makes up what Texans fondly term the "brush country" (Mesquite Trees and crop fields are prevalent).   

Whitetail deer thrive on the landscape and atmosphere which makes ranches in South Texas very popular with deer hunters.  Most Texans who hunt for deer prefer the South Texas ranch over other ranches within the state.  The hot summers and relatively mild winters make breeding deer easy and sustainable in the south of Texas.

You may also hear Texans refer to ranches in South Texas as located in the Rio Grande Valley. 

Texas Hill Country Ranches for Sale

texas hill country ranches for saleRanches in the Texas Hill Country are geographically located in central and the northern part of south Texas.  Many people classify the Texas Hill Country as the border between the American southeast and Southwest.

Buyers of ranches in the Texas Hill Country will often be able to find properties listed for sale featuring rugged hills made of limestone or granite.  Some of the hills on the ranches will reach 400 to 500 feet above the surrounding landscape.  Along with hills of granite and limestone, ranches in the Hill Country will have exposed rocks and boulders. 

The Hill Country climate is very dry and local vegetation consists of cactus, wildflowers, and yucca.  Whitetail deer are plentiful in the region, as are wild turkeys and wild hogs.

And if you want a chance to grow the state flower of Texas on your property, bluebonnets grow wild throughout the Texas Hill Country.

Texas Hunting Ranches

While hunting ranches in Texas can be found almost anywhere within the state (even short distances away from dense metropolitan areas), the use of the ranch for hunting will mostly depend upon what type of hunting an individual desires.  For instance, some animals are more populated in say the northern areas of Texas as opposed to south Texas, east Texas, or west Texas, and vice versa.

If your main objective is to hunt white-tailed deer, you're better off searching for a ranch in either east Texas or south Texas (which could actually include parts of the Hill Country).
