Description

Bedinghaus Ranch is a turn-key hunting, cattle, and recreation ranch uniquely located in the transition zone of the Hill Country and the South Texas Brush Country. From rolling, brushy hills with long views to winding lakes tucked into draws lined with towering oak and elm forests, Bedinghaus Ranch offers diverse habitat and terrain under one fence with exceptional improvements that allow for day-one use and enjoyment.

Much of the ranch consists of rolling hills covered in a mixture of brushes such as guajillo, blackbrush, mesquite, laurels, etc. and are dotted with large heritage oaks. Along two large lakes, a dense canopy of oak and elm trees provides great habitat for wildlife as well as a gorgeous spot to relax or recreate. Among the brush and in scattered open pastures lies a healthy base of native grasses ideal for grazing. Additionally, a low-fenced 50-acre tillable field near the entrance provides the perfect area for grazing or growing hay or other crops.

Water and Wildlife

Two well-fed tanks are situated along an unnamed creek that flows down to East Squirrel Creek as it traverses a corner of the property. These tanks are supplied by an Edwards irrigation well powered by a diesel pump. The well is approximately 1,350’ deep and feeds an underground network of piping leading to both tanks, as well as the tillable field. Seller owns 100 acre-feet of permitted water rights and will retain 50 acre-feet of unrestricted water. Water to the main house, barn and water troughs is supplied by West Medina Water Supply Corp.

The diverse mixture of shrubs and trees along the two creeks creates excellent habitat that has the property covered in wildlife. An introduced whitetail population, along with healthy populations of quail, turkey, and dove call Bedinghaus Ranch home. The abundance of water on the ranch, in combination with the utilization of surrounding land, presents a tremendous opportunity for dove hunting as well as migratory duck hunting.  Fishing in the lakes is exceptional with stocked populations of bass and catfish. A multitude of songbirds, and other species such as red-tailed hawks and great blue herons also call the property home and create an opportunity for wildlife watching or photography.
