wanna be my neighbor?

There is a great land deal nearby.  Great that is if you have $15,263,300.  Agua Fria Ranch is for sale and has been for a couple of years now.  Heck...I bet you could talk them down to $14 million.  83,87,68,0,B

No thanks. I have tried for 2 years to get either of 2 men to survey 20 acres by power lines. No dice. So here I stay. (But I do have 10 off grid acres surveyed). Other people sometimes think they can make decision judgements for you.

Only 23,482 acres in Brewster County?

is there something you could do on that land that would net you enough to live on and pay the taxes on the property? How much would be the taxes on something that size?

53K a year in property taxes... Could you make that much money running cattle on that land?

or what could do you do if not cattle to generate 53K a year?

PROVEN BUSINSS PLAN TO MAKE LOTS OF MONEY! Cut this huge chunk (of worthless land) up into much smaller tracts (anywhere from 5 acres to 640 aces) and sell it to residents of Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, etc. - who are looking for HUNTING PROPERTY. Great help to lease a few sections of land and stock it well with mule deer - SO THE NEW RANCH CAN ADVERTISE THEY HAVE FREE HUNT PARKS! This was the business plan for TERLINUA RANCH - WHICH ENDED UP WIIH OVER 5000 NEW OWNERS! The deer in the Hunt Parks of Terlingua Ranch are now gone (the Ranch eventually dropped the Hunt Park leases- mostly owned by the State of Texas) - and greater emphasis is now placed on real estate development - rather than hunting. A really slick bait and switch plan.

If I remember correctly, the existing extensive water system piping of Terlingua Rannch was destroyed when the "roads" were constructed. Don't get me wrong, I love the Big Bend country, to visit. My first trip to Big Bend was in 1956. The country can be brutal to man and beast. I would hate to try to make a living off of the 23,482 acres, even if it were free. Yep, my experience includes ranching for 15 years while working full time and there were no land payments. I admire those tough individuals who actually make a living in the West Texas desert ranching.
