PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: The historic 2,514-acre Saddle Ridge Ranch provides some of the most scenic views in West Texas. This beautiful ranch is high fenced for game management purposes, and is an extremely balanced combination hunting, cattle, family or corporate recreational property. There is an abundance of wildlife, including a highly managed trophy whitetail deer and quail program. The outstanding Bobwhite and Blue Quail populations due to brush management and habitat preservation make Saddle Ridge Ranch one of the top quail hunting ranches in west Texas. Formally part of the historic 200,000-acre L.B. Harris ranch, it was the route of the Butterfield Stagecoach which carried mail from St. Louis to California. There are several Calvary lookout points on the ranch which were used to protect the stage from the Comanches, who used the area for their hunting grounds. The ranch has many improvements including a 6,800 SF hunting lodge, equipment barns, processing facility, and a storage barn. In addition, there are 3.5 miles of all-weather caliche roads, 14 miles of high fence, 2 lakes as well as stock tanks, 8 + miles of interior fence, and multiple food plots. The current owners retained a wildlife biologist in 1995 and began a strict game management plan designed by Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Rolling Plains Quail Institute. The ranch has been awarded the State of Texas Game Management Certificate and is under the MLD Level III program, which allows for an extended deer hunting season. Saddle Ridge Ranch has received additional awards from Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Rolling Plains Quail Research Institute for its outstanding management practices and habitat management.
LOCATION: Saddle Ridge Ranch is located at the northern edge of the Edwards Plateau near the town of Robert Lee, Texas, and is situated about 1 ½ miles from the Colorado River. The property is 76 miles Southwest of Abilene, and 30 miles North of San Angelo. The main entrance to the Ranch is about 4 miles from the center of Robert Lee. Distance to the ranch from Fort Worth is 224 miles with an estimated travel time of 3 1/2 hours.
TERRAIN: The terrain of Saddle Ridge Ranch is consistent with that of the Coke County area with several exceptions that really differentiate this property from neighboring ranches. The terrain possesses some of the most beautiful topography in the area with elevation changes on the ranch from 1,640 ft up to 2,425 ft within its boundaries. The range conditions on this ranch are special with a good mixture of brush, food plots, canyons, creeks and draws. A brush management plan was established in 1997 and includes the removal of cedar, some mesquite, burns and reseeding, which has created exceptional wildlife cover and food sources throughout the property. The current owner estimates the clearing of over 2,350 acres of cedar since the plan began. They have done extensive dozer work clearing areas for planting food plots and improving the grass conditions for wildlife and livestock.
