1st Post ever here, so here it goes. Looking at a 80 acre tract in what is Pinon Ranch off 377 near Edwards & Val Verde Co. line. SW of Carta Valley. Track has tons of mature trees and cover and topo change, several seasonal creekbeds. Although I love the cool features of the track, I'm weary of it being shot out....I'm looking to see if anyone knows what the hunting/management might be like out there. I'm looking to get into bow hunting and a track that we could hunt year round for hogs & exotics, and of course seeing a big whitetail would be cool too. Anybody have property out there and could offer me some info? What kind of game might we see?
Any info much appreciated.

The area is game rich with exotics and native species. The best thing you could do to answer your question on the hunting pressure is to find and talk to your neighbors.

If the area is full of ranchettes that kill whatever crosses their property then you would be best to steer clear.

I have friends that ranch in that area. Stay away from subdivisions and be aware that that part of Texas is the epicenter of anthrax. The deer herd builds up then disappears on a regular cycle. I think you'll need about a section per hunter with good neighbors that can restrain their harvest and their buddies. You might look a little to the north or south about 50 miles.

I had a place one mile inside Val verde county line on 377 for several years. It was a great place and plenty of animals. We were a bunch of small tracks of land, we baught three tracks equaling 247 acres. I wish I still had that place. Should have got rid of the EX then and kept the property. I don't think you could go wrong.
