Located 25 miles from Pumpville, Texas, Grande Canyon Ranch is a one of a kind ranch in a one of a kind place. Pumpville, a modern ghost town, is an incredibly interesting place, that has been relatively protected for years. In the late 1800s when the San Antonio Railroad came through, a train station was built, and a town built with it. Today, those buildings, and those stories, are still here, without the hustle and bustle of the people. Over 600,000 acres of Terrell County is ranchland, while only 800 aces were considered "improved" in the county. These statistics just go to show the sheer wilderness this ranch presides in, which is extremely hard to find in today's day and age. The Pecos region of Far West Texas is one of the last strongholds of mother nature, and this ranch provides your very own piece of one of the United States last wildernesses.
The namesake "Grande Canyon Ranch" is a quite literal description of the ranch's number one landmark: Grande Canyon. This massive canyon is the largest in Terrell County, and is well known in local folklore as a dangerous and historical landmark, sure to make any adventurer happy. This canyon runs directly north and south on the property, weaving in between the massive elevation changes the ranch provides. These topographical highlights are perfect many types of recreational activities, such as UTV riding, rock climbing, bouldering, mountain biking, and even overlanding.
A deer management program, in operation since 1992, allows hunters to enjoy free chase hunting of white tail deer. Additionally, turkey, dove, quail, and occasional mule deer and audads make the ranch their home. Careful and meticulous care for the wildlife population, as well as large neighbors on all sides, allows for this hunting program to be undoubtedly one of the best in the area. The ranch is currently low-fenced, but with clear fence lines, a little elbow grease would allow for an incredible high fenced set up.
Livestock and Improvements
3 wells with an extensive water distribution system, working pens, traps, and livestock carrying capacity of 85 head of mother cows and 1000 head of sheep or goats enable Grande Canyon Ranch to continue with its long established history as a livestock operation. Additionally a small hunting cabin allows the owners a warm place to get some much needed rest while out on the ranch.
