Elk Draw Ranch
About This Property
Elk Draw Ranch is located south of Alpine, Texas along the Calamity Creek watershed. Its location a couple of miles east of Highway 118 offers privacy and the solitude of the Big Bend country with a backdrop of Santiago Peak, Nine Point Mesa, Cathedral Mountain and many other notable features of the area.
All livestock was removed from this property and it has been actively managed for wildlife for the past several years and enjoys a wildlife management use exemption. Bulk protein feeders provide supplemental feed to attract and maintain the wildlife numbers. In addition, Calamity Creek and several dirt tanks provide seasonal water and the deep soils in the bottoms provide cover and significant forage and browse.
Game management on this and other adjoining ranches provides an environment that allows many different species to thrive in this desert region. There are good herds of elk and mule deer along with quail, dove, turkey, javelina and feral hogs.
This is an affordable property that is hard to find with good access and convenient to Alpine, Big Bend National Park and Lajitas Resort.
