Recreation & Hunting

Hunting

Glensprings Ranch is a high fenced game-managed Hill Country ranch producing trophy native Whitetail deer for the last 24 years. It’s also the home of many native wildlife species including turkey, dove, quail, feral hogs, ducks, and the normal mix of varmints that include raccoons, bobcats, coyotes, and red and gray fox. Time and the owner’s stewardship have done a magnificent job of developing the native genetics within this property. There are 11 game-blinds on the property with a host of accompanying feeders and a perimeter high-fence. Every day, it is amazing when a sweep of binoculars indicates the number of trophy whitetail deer that thrive on this ranch.

Water

With a name like Glensprings, water is a major component of this place’s appeal. At the center of it all, the bubbling spring feeds into a large man-made swimming area of crystal clarity. For anyone who loves to fish, there are two lakes filled with native fish species. Earth ponds are spread throughout the property to catch drain water from the undulating topography, trapping it for later use by the cattle and wildlife. Water is the most important natural resource in Texas. 

Activities

Activities include a regulation skeet range, hunting and target-practice, indoor basketball and pickleball court, horseback riding, fishing in any of the larger ponds, swimming in the spring and a small aircraft runway.

For Living

Primary Residence: “Headquarters”

Primary Residence: “Headquarters”
The main home is the center point of the entire property. Positioned on the hilltop to enjoy the surrounding landscape and changing seasons, it crowns the ranch in handcrafted stonework and authentic Montana timber. The large custom steel windows let the unfettered daylight, and at night all the wood walls and accents warm and glow in the reflection of warm fixtures. The home is 6,900 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. Intermixed are a game room and attached barn structure containing a basketball and pickleball court. Just outside the doors, a rambling porch encircles the home and lands in an outdoor fireplace, TV and seating area that has come to be one of those family highlight places. The setting for many fine memories.

Guest House 1 & 2
Both beautiful, but sized according to their intent, the guest houses each have a 3-car carport. The larger guest home is 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom while the smaller is a 2 bedroom with 1 bathroom.

Foreman’s House
Built to spec for our once-in-a-lifetime foreman and his wife, this house is probably one of the most important places on the ranch. This basecamp is located away from the main house, but offers clear access via an extensively maintained road network to each corner of the ranch. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a 3-car carport and most importantly, a foreman currently residing in it!

For Working

Equipment and Barn

Every ranch of any substance has an excellent barn, this is no exception. It’s 1800 square feet and filled to the brim with all the lightweight and heavy equipment needed to keep a ranch this beautiful, operating and aesthetically on-point. Parked here are a road grader, D6 and D4 CAT Dozers, and a tractor. 

Working Pens, Water Sources and Food Plots

This ranch is equipped with three well-located working pens that allow for the introduction, removal, and separation of livestock. The food plots provide attractive food sources for the wildlife. 8 windmills turn to produce daily water sources in all the main sections of the ranch and the perimeter is designed with a high-fence (game-fence).
