The 4,423 acre Rio Diablo Ranch is a turnkey hunting paradise located in southeast Val Verde County, approximately 30 miles north of Del Rio. The Devil’s River lies only 2.25 miles southwest of the property. Large neighbors adjacent to the ranch include a 15,000+ acre State Natural Area to the west and a 9,800 acre private, high- fenced ranch to the south.
Seasonal Bluff Creek and Big Satan Creek traverse the property. Shear limestone bluffs dotted with caves line both sides of the creek. A natural spring at the foot of one such bluff fills two small ponds. The ranch is well- watered by four wells; two on submersible pumps and two on large, well maintained windmills. Elevations range from 1,400’ to 1,750’.
Excellent hunting for native whitetail deer, Rio Grande turkey and white wing dove. The ranch is well- stocked with several species of exotic game animals for year- round hunting. Exotics include elk, blackbuck antelope, axis and fallow deer, aoudad, Mahrkor, Iranian red, mouflon and Barbado sheep.
