U.S.G.S. TOPOGRAPHIC MAP (Showing this 688.2 acres and the adjacent 711.3 acres, also available.)

LOCATION: Located in Webb County approximately 15 miles south of Laredo which is the county seat, or 160 miles southwest of San Antonio, or 240 miles southwest of Austin, or 290 miles southwest of Houston, or 400 miles southwest of Dallas. All distances are measured straight-line "as the crow flies".

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: This 688.2 acre ranch is on the market for the first time and was once part of a larger cattle ranching operation. The ranch has been lightly grazed and very lightly hunted by only family members.

REASON FOR SALE: The owner has made the decision to sell this property for estate planning purposes.

METHOD OF SALE: The Owner (Seller) has given Thornton Ranch Sales exclusive written authorization to sell this fine property. The Seller will convey the property by a General Warranty Deed, provide a standard Owner’s Policy of Title Insurance and furnish a current/recertified survey. The property is offered for sale for all cash.

DESCRIPTION: This excellent hunting/recreational ranch is rich in game and possesses the genetics and high protein browse to produce trophy whitetail deer. Webb County and this area have long been known for producing Boone and Crockett deer. Hogs, javelina, quail, turkey, bobcats, coyotes and the occasional mountain lion also inhabit the property. The ranch is surrounded by large neighbors and has had little to no hunting activity for many years. You will find a happy mixture of huisatche, mesquite, black brush, guajillo, guayacan, granjeno, cenizo, prickly pear and acacia to name a few, all high in protein. It is a sportsman’s dream at a very affordable price. There are three large ponds/tanks on the ranch that attract and hold wildlife. Dolores Creek flows thru the ranch for a distance of about 4,000 feet and Blancas Creek, a tributary of Dolores Creek, flows thru the property for about one mile. The confluence of these creeks, both seasonal, would be an outstanding site for a very large lake ((20-40 acres). There are also several excellent sites for smaller lakes or ponds. Entry is by deeded easement and the ranch gate is 5.5 miles from a paved FM road. Privacy is assured as only adjacent ranch owners can gain access off this FM road through a locked gate. There is also world class bass fishing at nearby Casa Blanca Lake and Falcon Lake.

MINERALS: To include all water rights and air rights. There are no minerals that convey and this is a surface estate sale only.

POSSESSION: Possession of the Property subject to no hunting or grazing leases will be delivered to the buyer on the date of closing and funding.

IMPROVEMENTS: The property has electricity available, is fenced on all sides with three sides low fence and one side high fenced. There are three stock ponds and several good internal ranch roads.

TAXES: Based on current agricultural use the total ad valorum taxes for calendar year 2010 were approximately $450. The property will be conveyed to the buyer with said agricultural use designation in place.
