Location:  The Caloosa Ranch is located in the heart of big ranch country just 15 miles northwest of Aspermont. The ranch is easily accessed with nearly 8.5 miles of frontage on County Road 350 and the boundary of the ranch beginning just 2.5 miles off of paved FM 1646. The front gate to the ranch is reachable in under 1.5 hours from Abilene, 2 hours from Lubbock, 2.5 hours from Midland, and under 3.5 hours from Fort Worth. Stonewall county airport (T60) has a 4,000ft paved runway located just outside of Aspermont, approx. 20 minutes from the ranch.

Land:  The ranch offers a diverse landscape with a great mixture of rolling uplands, improved pasture, mesquite flats, tillable fields, miles of creek bottoms, and expansive canyons. With nearly 300 feet of elevation change found throughout the ranch, the high bluffs overlooking the canyons and creek bottoms create vast, unrivaled views. Surface water is superior for the region with three major creek drainages and numerous dirt tanks and lakes built in nearly every pasture. The ranch has historically run a large cattle operation with the necessary infrastructure, cross-fencing, and water troughs in place to easily support 325+ head. The wide-ranging native habitat and cover mixed with an abundance of surface water are ideal for wildlife management and craft a true recreational paradise.

Improvements:  The Caloosa Ranch boasts a distinguished 5 bedroom, 5.5 bathroom main lodge built on a prominent high point of the ranch, featuring 4,768 square feet of living space with luxurious accommodations and plentiful space for entertaining. The lodge features spacious common areas and living space, gun room, formal dining, covered porches, and four spacious guest bedrooms and a master suite, each with their own full bathroom with walk-in showers.  The interior of the lodge is highlighted with custom mesquite furniture, stained concrete floors, a towering double-sided stone fireplace, vaulted wood ceilings, and absolutely magnificent panoramic views of the ranch through the grand eastern facing windows. The fully-furnished lodge is the perfect accompaniment to the ranch and is ready for immediate enjoyment. The ranch is also complemented by a 2,950 square foot ranch manager’s house, a 21’x30’ game cleaning barn with walk-in cooler and two 45x70 steel Quonset hut barns on concrete slabs.

Wildlife:  The ranch has a rich wildlife management history and is a sportsman’s paradise with everything in place ready to enjoy. The Caloosa provides endless recreational enjoyment and the habitat supports strong numbers of whitetail, quail, turkeys, waterfowl, and other native species. The ranch offers both high-fenced and low-fenced hunting and is currently Level 3 MLD. There is a centrally located 1,800+/- acre high-fenced pasture with excellent whitetail genetics in place and the surrounding 12,700+/- acres is free-range and low-fence. During each of the last 3 deer seasons, the average of the top 5 high-fence bucks harvested each year has been over 180”, with 5 being over 200”. The habitat is also perfect for the serious quail hunter and the ranch supports a strong bird population when conditions allow. The hunting has historically been primarily with family and friends but has all the pieces in place to scale up a larger commercial hunting operation if desired. The ranch is already set up with 22 nice deer blinds and 31 corn/protein feeders, as well as over 100 quail feeders scattered throughout.

Water:  The ranch has excellent water supply for both livestock and wildlife with over 5 miles of major river and creek drainages traversing the ranch featuring The Salt Fork of the Brazos, Salt Croton Creek, and Salt Creek. With good rolling topography, dirt tanks and earthen dams can be found all throughout that back up and hold substantial water in many of the larger draws. There are 6 electric water wells and 5 additional windmills, with miles of buried distribution waterlines to drinking troughs that help supplement water further and allow for more efficient cattle and wildlife operations.

Other:  The ranch conveys with all owned minerals and is being offered turn-key with an extensive list of deer blinds, feeders, home furnishings, ranch vehicles, equipment, and other personal property. Mineral information and inventory list of specific items conveying to be provided upon request by qualified buyers.
