The name Guadalupe has been applied to the present<br />

river, at least in its lower course, since 1689, when the<br />

stream was so named by Alonso De León.<br />

While a picture is worth a thousand words, a nature<br />

photography operation can be worth thousands of<br />

dollars to landowners.<br />

Following the robust price recovery from 2012<br />

through 2013 when prices surged by 7 to 10.5<br />

percent annually, Texas land markets seem to<br />

have taken a break.<br />

As an emergency room doctor and a first-generation<br />

rancher, Dr. Richard Thorpe offers a unique<br />

perspective as president of Texas’s largest<br />

livestock organization<br />

A ranch owner must have good ranch hands. They<br />

are the men who make the ranch go ‘round. Ranch<br />

owners can’t operate with a transient workforce.<br />

Good, strong, stable family men, who love their work<br />

more than their pay, are those men who build and<br />

decorate our ranches.<br />

As Peter John Holt and his sister take the helm of a<br />

business that can be traced back to their great-great<br />

grandfather, Benjamin Holt, who developed and<br />

manufactured the first track-type tractor, Holt is aware<br />

of the legacy.<br />

As a landowner, where do you turn when it’s time to<br />

As the Director of Farm & Ranch at Keller Williams<br />

Realty International (KWRI) and the owner of Mock<br />

Ranches, Kasey Mock is a man on the move.<br />

In Texas, and elsewhere, the history of the wild<br />

turkey is one of the great wildlife conservation<br />

success stories.<br />

Since much of Texas is often described as an arid<br />

to semi-arid environment, there exists plenty of<br />

opportunities through creative, financial, and sweat<br />

equities to invest in water as a means of providing a<br />

better home for wild creatures and for people.<br />



Pony Creek Ranch is located just outside Glen Rose<br />

and approximately one-and-a-half hours from<br />

Dallas and an hour from Fort Worth. Presented by<br />

<strong>Spring</strong> is a time for plans, projects and dirt—under our feet, on our<br />

jeans and in our hands. Just as the geese lift off from their southern<br />

wintering grounds in answer to the primal call of the north, we humans are<br />

instinctively drawn outside. Nature’s flurry of renewal inspires us to become<br />

part of life’s forward march. After winter’s gray chill, we want to embrace<br />

the sun’s light and plant something. The smell of soil and rain is a sweet<br />

promise…just ask any kids who have ever splashed in a mud puddle.<br />

While Mother Nature rolls out her green carpet in cities, suburbs and towns,<br />

it is slashed by concrete and glass. The artificial context diminishes the<br />

splendor. The limited space in our elbow-to-elbow urban world, often<br />

relegates us to the role of spectator. Tiny spaces beg the question,<br />

“Why bother?”<br />

Wide, open spaces, on the other hand, challenge: “Why are you just<br />

standing there? Dig in.”<br />

In these pages, you’ll find a host of places worthy of digging into—and<br />

staking a claim on. Be inspired to play dirty. Make a difference. Live.<br />

Ironclad Performance Wear<br />

Ironclad.com<br />

Ed Jaeger, Ironclad’s founder, realized that there was<br />

a huge disconnect between the worker and their most<br />

important tool—their hands. His concept was to build<br />

a glove that offered protection and performance, but<br />

sacrificed neither. He also wanted to create a brand<br />

that real workers could be proud to wear, a brand that<br />

would stick with them through thick and thin, and a<br />

brand that was built solely for them. These people<br />

are the true heroes of real life. Ironclad pioneered this<br />

new territory—developing task-specific gloves that<br />

helped each worker get the job done more safely,<br />

efficiently and effectively. But just developing taskspecific<br />

gloves wasn’t enough. Ironclad needed to<br />

bring new technologies, materials and innovations to<br />

these harsh working environments. As a result, Ironclad<br />

has developed and owns 74 Patents and Trademarks<br />

worldwide. These exclusive properties are a part of our<br />

expanding advanced glove technology which can be<br />

seen in virtually every glove Ironclad sells.<br />

The Classroom<br />

ClintRutledge.com<br />

Texas coaching legend D.W. Rutledge’s<br />

son, Clint Rutledge, has released his<br />

newest book which takes the reader<br />

behind the scenes of the Converse Judson<br />

Rockets program of the 1980s and 1990s.<br />

In an incredible 10-year run during those<br />

two decades, the Rockets went to three<br />

State semi-final games and seven State<br />

Championship games, winning four of<br />

them. According to Clint Rutledge, the<br />

source of that success was found in an<br />

old room the players and coaches simply<br />

referred to as “The Classroom,” which<br />

fittingly is the title of his new book.<br />

A Wild Soap Bar<br />

AWildSoapBar.com<br />

Since 1995, A Wild Soap Bar’s goal has been to provide truly natural soaps and body care products<br />

made from scratch featuring wildcrafted and organic botanicals that are safe for all living things and a<br />

joy to use. A portion of their profits are donated each year to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center,<br />

Western National Parks Association, and Clean the World. AWSB also created a Kiva micro-lending<br />

group called Wild About Good where they donate 100 percent of the profits from their Real Castile<br />

Soap to lift people up worldwide. Their handmade natural products are biodegradable, cruelty-free,<br />

minimally packaged, many are vegan, and they do not contain synthetic fragrance oils or other harmful<br />

chemicals. 100 percent of their base oils are certified organic. The sustainable organic palm oil they<br />

use is from Colombia and is RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) certified as well as Rainforest<br />

Alliance certified. AWSB earned Green America’s Top Gold Certified Business Seal by being committed<br />

to protecting people and the planet. They maintain a natural wildlife habitat on their rural property,<br />

garden organically, and contribute to the local community when a need arises that they can fulfill.<br />


Tecovas Boots<br />

TecovasBoots.com<br />

The story of Tecovas Boots starts with a simple desire for handmade, high-quality boots that don’t break the bank. Tecovas spent months<br />

traveling and researching before figuring out that it was possible to make the boots they wanted to wear—at prices that everyone would want to<br />

wear them. So they got to work and it’s safe to say the boots over-deliver. Aside from the ultra luxe quality, Tecovas are made with the spirit of<br />

Texas in mind. Named after a geological formation in the Palo Duro Canyon area, the boots capture the essence of the Lone Star State through<br />

classic designs, timeless style, and rugged durability. The Austin-based company has now opened up their home office and showroom to<br />

friends and customers who want to see, touch, smell, and try their boots on in person! Head out to East Austin to check it our for yourself.<br />




Sugar & Spice Ranch<br />

SugarAndSpiceRanch.com<br />

The Sugar & Spice Ranch is an exclusive destination for gals looking for the perfect<br />

learning and bonding vacation. The ranch is run by a mother and daughter team and<br />

the summer is devoted exclusively to moms and daughters. Located in Bandera,<br />

Texas, they offer guests a chance to experience the rich traditions of the old west,<br />

with an abundance of wildlife thrown in for good measure. Guests are involved in<br />

everything there is to do with daily care—including feeding, grooming, tacking up,<br />

cleaning tack, bathing and, of course, riding. The bonding experience is enhanced as<br />

guests bunk together in the ranch bunkhouse—mom and daughter sharing a bunk<br />

bed—along with full air conditioning and a bathroom with a Jacuzzi hot tub. Instead of<br />

just daughters heading off to camp, moms get to go too. All of the activity is learning<br />

focused; there is no time for leisurely trail riding, but you can practice what you<br />

learn on the trails back home. There are lots of fun arena games in addition to riding<br />

lessons, and the value of the bonding experience is impossible to measure. Girls get<br />

to have the camping experience without feeling homesick, ‘cause Mom is right there,<br />

bunking, riding, and swimming with her. The last day of camp they will participate<br />

together in a team horse show. For moms who love horses and have been searching<br />

for a way to get their daughter involved, this week-long camp is ideal.<br />

TEXAS LAND / Roundup Issue<br />

A Comprehensive Overview<br />





The Guadalupe River rises<br />

in two forks in western Kerr<br />

County. Its North Fork begins<br />

just south of State Highway<br />

41, four miles from the Real-<br />

Kerr county line (at 30°06’<br />

N, 99°39’ W), and runs east<br />

for 22 miles to its confluence<br />

with the South Fork, near Hunt (at 30°04’<br />

N, 99°20’ W). The South Fork rises three<br />

miles southwest of the intersection of State<br />

Highway 39 and Farm Road 187 (at 29°56’ N,<br />

99°35’ W) and runs northeast for 20 miles to<br />

meet the North Fork. After the two branches<br />

converge, the Guadalupe River proper flows<br />

southeast for 230 miles, passing through<br />

Kerr, Kendall, Comal, Guadalupe, Gonzales,<br />

DeWitt, and Victoria counties. It then forms the<br />

boundary between southern Victoria County<br />

and Calhoun County and between Calhoun and<br />

Refugio counties before reaching its mouth<br />

on San Antonio Bay (at 28°26’ N, 96°48’ W).<br />

The Guadalupe’s principal tributaries are the<br />

Comal and the San Marcos rivers. Its drainage<br />

area is about 6,070 square miles. The upper<br />

Guadalupe flows across part of the Edwards<br />

Plateau. Near the river, high limestone bluffs<br />

support bald cypress, mesquite, and grasses.<br />

The Balcones fault line, which the river crosses<br />

near New Braunfels, marks the transition to<br />

the coastal plains. Sections of the upper and<br />

middle reaches of the river are suitable for<br />

canoeing, but a number of small waterfalls<br />

prevent uninterrupted navigation of the entire<br />

river. The lower Guadalupe is generally much<br />

quieter and has more sand bars that lend<br />

themselves to camping and day use.<br />

The name Guadalupe, or Nuestra Señora de<br />

Guadalupe, has been applied to the present<br />

river, at least in its lower course, since 1689,<br />

when the stream was so named by Alonso<br />

De León. Domingo Terán de los Ríos, who<br />

maintained a colony on the river from 1691 to<br />

1693, renamed it San Agustín, but the name<br />

Guadalupe continued to be used. Most of the<br />

early explorers, including Father Isidro Félix de<br />

Espinosa, Domingo Ramón, and the Marqués<br />

de Aguayo, called the Guadalupe River the San<br />

Ybón above its junction with the Comal, and<br />

referred to the Comal River as the Guadalupe.<br />

Above the mouth of the Comal the name<br />

Guadalupe was applied to the present river at<br />

least as early as 1727, when Pedro de Rivera y<br />

Villalón so referred to it.<br />


Artifacts dating from the Archaic era have<br />

been found in the Guadalupe River valley,<br />

suggesting that the area has supported<br />

human habitation for several thousand<br />

years. The peoples encountered by early<br />

explorers belonged to the Tonkawa, Waco,<br />

Lipan Apache, and Karankawa Indians. These<br />

early inhabitants were gradually displaced<br />

by settlers from Mexico, Europe, and the<br />

United States. European settlement along<br />

the Guadalupe began as early as the 1720s,<br />

when the Spanish established several<br />

missions above the site of present Victoria.<br />

In 1755 the short-lived San Xavier Mission<br />

was established near San Marcos <strong>Spring</strong>s.<br />

For a brief time in 1808 a settlement grew<br />

up at the intersection of the Guadalupe<br />

River and the Old San Antonio Road, but<br />

flooding and the threat of Indian raids made<br />

the site untenable. Settlements of a more<br />

permanent nature along the Guadalupe<br />

were not long in coming, however. Martín De<br />

León established Victoria near the mouth<br />

of the river in 1824, and in 1825 James Kerr<br />

founded Gonzales 60 miles further upstream,<br />

where on the south bank a historic marker<br />

has been placed to commemorate the firing<br />

of the first shot for Texas independence in<br />

the battle of Gonzales (October 2, 1835).<br />

During the 1830s some 30 or 40 families<br />

homesteaded along the banks of the lower<br />

Guadalupe, which was an early boundary of<br />

the Power and Hewetson colony. Settlement<br />

farther upriver increased in the late 1830s.<br />

Seguin (then called Walnut <strong>Spring</strong>s) was<br />

surveyed by Benjamin McCulloch in 1839,<br />

and New Braunfels was founded in 1845 by a<br />

group of German settlers led by Prince Carl<br />

of Solms-Braunfels. In 1856 Kerrville was<br />

established on the upper Guadalupe. The<br />

construction of railroads through the middle<br />

and upper Guadalupe valley in the 1880s<br />

brought large numbers of new residents to<br />

the area. Kerrville, Comfort, Luling, and Cuero<br />

were among the small communities on the<br />

Guadalupe that prospered with the arrival of<br />

the railroads.<br />

Projects to make the Guadalupe navigable<br />

were approved by the Mexican government<br />

in the late 1820s and early 1830s, but these<br />

were interrupted by the Texas Revolution.<br />

Some improvements to the lower reaches of<br />

the river were authorized by the Republic of<br />

Texas in the 1840s and by the Texas legislature<br />



TEXAS LAND / Roundup Issue<br />

play a critical role in providing the surrounding<br />

area with power, water, and recreation. Kerrville,<br />

New Braunfels, San Marcos, Seguin, Gonzales,<br />

and Victoria, as well as smaller communities such<br />

as Prairie Lea and Fentress, relied on the river for<br />

their municipal water supply. At least six power<br />

stations in the middle and lower portions of the<br />

river depended on a steady release of water from<br />

Canyon Dam, and the construction of several<br />

more such stations was under consideration.<br />

Recreation on the river, which included canoeing<br />

and inner-tubing as well as water parks and the<br />

facilities available at Canyon Lake and Guadalupe<br />

River State Park, attracted large numbers of<br />

people to the vicinity and contributed heavily to<br />

the area’s economy.<br />

in the 1850s. Large snags in the Guadalupe above Victoria<br />

made travel upriver impossible, but commercial routes<br />

were developed from Victoria to ports on the Gulf of<br />

Mexico. River traffic declined after the completion of<br />

the San Antonio and Mexican Gulf Railway from Victoria<br />

to Port Lavaca in 1861. Interest in the river’s potential<br />

navigability was renewed in the early 1900s, but a 1935<br />

study by the United States Army Corps of Engineers<br />

pronounced such a project economically unfeasible.<br />

Instead, the corps proposed a canal paralleling the river<br />

to connect Victoria with the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway.<br />

The proposal was reviewed in 1950, and construction<br />

began soon thereafter. The 35-mile Victoria Barge Canal<br />

was opened to commercial traffic in the mid-1960s, thus<br />

eliminating the need to improve the Guadalupe itself for<br />

such a purpose.<br />

The steady flow from the springs that feed the<br />

Guadalupe and its tributaries have made the river<br />

an attractive source of waterpower. The Guadalupe<br />

Waterpower Company was established in 1912, and by<br />

1920 the company had built a series of dams between<br />

New Braunfels and Seguin in an effort to harness the<br />

river’s power. Flooding, however, continued to be a<br />

problem. In 1933 the state legislature established the<br />

Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority to oversee the control,<br />

storage, and distribution of water from the Guadalupe<br />

and Blanco rivers. In 1958 the corps of engineers, in<br />

cooperation with the river authority, began construction<br />

of the dam at Canyon Lake several miles upriver from New<br />

Braunfels. After its completion in 1964, the dam provided<br />

the first effective flood control for areas downstream.<br />

During the early 1990s the Guadalupe River continued to<br />

The Flowing River Ranch,<br />

located about 10 minutes<br />

south of Hunt in<br />

Kerr County, offers the<br />

exceedingly rare opportunity<br />

to purchase 108±<br />

acres of undeveloped<br />

land on the south fork of<br />

the Guadalupe River. The south fork is<br />

known for its high water quality as well as<br />

the surrounding scenery. The crystalline<br />

river, arguably Texans’ favorite, courses<br />

through the ranch for about 1,200 feet.<br />

The property fronts Highway 39 making<br />

access easy. Imagine whiling away long<br />

summer afternoons on the banks of the<br />

Guadalupe, indulging in cooling dips,<br />

relaxing picnics and naps in the shade.<br />

The only other people present are those<br />

you invite. The ranch, with gently rolling<br />

terrain shaded by mature post oaks and<br />

live oaks, is a beautiful blank canvas.<br />

Because there are no buildings on the<br />

property, the new owners will have the<br />

complete freedom to create a personal<br />

masterpiece, be it a private recreational<br />

getaway or a corporate retreat. A discerning<br />

eye will spot the locations that lend<br />

themselves to be prime building sites.<br />

The combination of native vegetation and<br />

plentiful water attracts wildlife. The region<br />

is home to white-tailed deer and turkey<br />

as well as roaming exotics such as axis,<br />

sika and fallow deer. To experience the<br />

rare opportunity that is the Flowing River<br />

The 17,132-acre Rancho Agua Grande,<br />

located 25 miles northwest of Uvalde where<br />

South Texas, West Texas and the Hill Country<br />

meet, is one of largest live water ranches for<br />

sale in Texas. Year-round Live Oak Creek,<br />

fed by more than 30 springs, bisects the<br />

ranch from north to south for about seven<br />

miles. The line between Uvalde and Kinney<br />

counties is on a similar north-south axis.<br />

The shady pecan bottom along the creek<br />

stands in contrast to the rugged hills<br />

and deep canyons that characterize the<br />

transitional landscape. The ranch is home to<br />

Boiling Mountain, the highest peak in Uvalde<br />

County, and Salmon Peak, the highest point<br />

in Kinney County. Because three ecoregions<br />

converge on the Rancho Agua Grande, the<br />

vegetation is diverse ranging from pinon<br />

pines to live oaks and mesquites, huisache,<br />

guajillo and black brush. It’s a feast for<br />

human eyes and a natural buffet for wildlife.<br />

Live Oak Creek is a calling card for the<br />

ranch’s native and exotic wildlife. They<br />

gather to drink and loaf under the trees<br />

making it easy to view some of the more<br />

than 40 species of game from around the<br />

globe that roam the property. It’s possible<br />

to see kangaroos, camels, zebras, gemsbok,<br />

sable, water buffalo, white bison, Iranian red<br />

sheep, scimitar-horned oryx and water bucks<br />

just to name a few in a single afternoon.<br />

Whitetails, turkey, dove and a limited<br />

population of quail are native to the ranch.<br />

More than 50 miles of high-fence encircle<br />

the perimeter keeping the desirable<br />

managed wildlife inside and the freeranging<br />

game out. With the rich, abundant<br />

diversity of wildlife, it’s no wonder that<br />

Rancho Agua Grande is considered one of<br />

the nations premier hunting destinations.<br />

To see the unique splendor and unlimited<br />

potential of the Rancho Agua Grande for<br />

yourself, contact Howard W. Hood at<br />

and superlative privacy for its<br />

The Rancho Estrella is divided into four<br />

pastures: the Brush Pasture, the Front<br />

Safari Pasture, the Back Safari Pasture<br />

and the House Pasture. The exterior<br />

and interior fences are high to facilitate<br />

wildlife management. Miles of allweather<br />

and quick-drying ranch roads<br />

provide easy access.<br />

Managed for wildlife for almost three<br />

decades, the Rancho Estrella is home to<br />

white-tailed deer, bobwhite and scaled<br />

quail, Rio Grande turkeys, javelina,<br />

dove and feral hogs. While quail hunting<br />

occurs regularly on the ranch, the native<br />

population has been supplemented with<br />

pen-raised birds to keep the numbers stable.<br />

In addition to healthy populations of native<br />

game, the ranch has a full complement of<br />

desirable exotics: sable antelope, scimitarhorned<br />

oryx, axis and zebras.<br />

The well-managed brush country habitat<br />

is supplemented with protein feeders as<br />

well as winter and summer food plots. The<br />

ranch has 24 protein feeders ranging in<br />

capacity from 1,000–2,500 pounds as well<br />

as 18 quail feeders. To facilitate hunting,<br />

there are 30 Atascosa deer blinds and 30<br />

1,000-pound corn feeders strategically<br />

located throughout.<br />

In addition to wildlife, the ranch is wellsuited<br />

for cattle. The new owners can<br />

choose to run their own herds or lease out<br />

the grazing for an additional income stream.<br />

There are two sets of cattle pens: one on<br />

the Brush Pasture and a newly constructed<br />

set that can be accessed from the remaining<br />

three pastures.<br />

Water for wildlife and livestock are plentiful.<br />

The Rancho Estrella has nine water wells;<br />

two of which are run on solar pumps and<br />

the remainder on electric submersible<br />

pumps. There are also four stock tanks, three<br />

of which are supplemented by water from<br />

the wells. The other relies on rainwater. Plus,<br />

there are more than 30 wildlife waterers<br />

scattered throughout the property.<br />

Rancho Estrella is designed to entertain<br />

large numbers of family, friends, colleagues<br />

or clients, providing opportunities for both<br />

camaraderie and privacy. The scope and<br />

scale of the facilities can handle special<br />

events. For instance, the focal point of one of<br />

the dining rooms is a 24-foot mesquite table.<br />

There are two separate compounds to<br />

house guests, one in the Brush Pasture and<br />

one in the House Pasture. At each location,<br />

there is a combination of a main lodge as<br />

well as apartments and casitas. The smaller<br />

quarters offer partial kitchens and private<br />

baths. The Brush Pasture Compound, which<br />

reflects the style and tradition of South<br />

Texas, also has a swimming pool and a<br />

series of common areas designed to bring<br />

people together. There is a master plan in<br />

place outlining potential expansion of the<br />

House Pasture.<br />

The owner’s home is located at the Brush<br />

Pasture compound. It is a four-bedroom,<br />

four-bath house with half baths attached<br />

to the kitchen and family room. While it<br />

is central to the compound’s design, the<br />

owner’s home includes a separate wing<br />

where the family can gather privately.<br />

There are two modular homes for staff.<br />

The ranch’s infrastructure is also designed<br />

to support ranch work and entertaining.<br />

For instance, there is a 10’x25’ walk-in<br />

cooler for storing game and kennels for<br />

housing the ranch’s bird dogs. Guests can<br />

enjoy shooting skeet from both a high and<br />

low-house. A watch tower near the owners’<br />

home provides a view of Mexico’s Sierra<br />

Madre Mountains.<br />

The ranch has been both a hunting<br />

destination and a corporate retreat. If the<br />

new owner chooses, Rancho Estrella could<br />

easily be transformed into a commercial<br />

hunting operation.<br />

Brush country. Grassland savannahs.<br />

Camaraderie. Privacy. Rancho Estrella<br />

provides an opportunity for the best of<br />

all worlds.<br />

bar and walls of antique long leaf pine.<br />

Upstairs from the bar is the palatial guest suite<br />

overlooking the lake, outside fire pit, and<br />

that the lakes have been stocked for over 20<br />

years with a bountiful habitat of world-class<br />

Florida bass and large catfish. The estate<br />

grounds feature a thoroughbred horse barn,<br />

tack room, and office. Close by is a large shop,<br />

TEXAS LAND / Roundup Issue<br />

Nature Photography<br />

A Natural Fit<br />

While a picture is worth a thousand words,<br />

a nature photography operation can be<br />

worth thousands of dollars to landowners.<br />



“Nature photography is the fastest growing recreation<br />

industry in America,” said John Martin, a retired financial<br />

advisor, amateur nature photographer and conservationist<br />

who founded the Images for Conservation Fund. “The last<br />

time I looked 30 million people self-identified as nature<br />

photographers and 11 million of them said they traveled<br />

eight days or more per year to pursue their hobby.<br />

“I’m not greedy,” he continued. “I just want 1 million of<br />

them to come to Texas.”<br />

According to Martin, nature photography makes<br />

sense as an additional revenue stream for Texas<br />

ranchers because it’s complementary to what they’re<br />

already doing.<br />

“It takes at least 100 acres to establish a nature<br />

photography destination but 200 to 300 is an ideal place<br />

to start,” Martin said. “Some people choose to segregate<br />

nature photography from their other enterprises,<br />

while others, with careful planning, incorporate nature<br />

photography into their hunting and livestock operations<br />

because those activities create images photographers<br />

want to capture.”<br />

Landowners who are interested in nature<br />

photography need to start by assessing their ranches<br />

and identifying the unique characteristics that someone<br />

would pay to photograph.<br />

“Do you have a rare species? Or do you have a wide<br />

variety of wildlife that gathers in a central spot like a water<br />

hole? What does your ranch have that sets it apart in this<br />

big, beautiful world?” Martin said.<br />

Big Bucks: ICF Photo Tourneys<br />

Using professional golf as a model, John Martin, working<br />

under the Valley Land Fund and Images for Conservation Fund<br />

banners, conceived a series of nature photography tournaments.<br />

“Golf is a slow game and yet it is a $40 billion/year industry<br />

worldwide,” Martin said. “Because of the demand for golf, more<br />

than 2 million acres worldwide have been kept open.”<br />

With that in mind, Martin designed tourneys to create<br />

demand for high-quality nature photography and provide<br />

financial reward for photographers and the landowners<br />

who hosted them. After two years of planning, Valley Land<br />

Fund hosted the first tournament in 1994. It was held in the<br />

Rio Grande Valley and involved 108 ranches paired with 108<br />

photographers. Martin and his team of volunteers raised<br />

$94,000 to support the event, and paid out $77,000 in prizes of<br />

which the landowners got half.<br />

“From its inception, the Valley Land Fund Wildlife Photo Contest<br />

was the richest photo tournament in the world,” Martin said.<br />

Building on that initial success, the Valley Land Fund<br />

hosted a tournament every other year from 1994–2008.<br />

Images for Conservation Fund was created in 2003 to develop<br />

the Pro-Tour of Nature Photography and held three Pro-Tour<br />

events that rotated between the Hill Country, the Gulf Coast<br />

and the Borderlands involving a total of more than 10 million<br />

acres. Each tournament was supported by a book showcasing<br />

the winners.<br />

The Pro-Tours paired 20 photographers with 20 ranches<br />

for 30 days. The photographers’ goals were photographing the<br />

biodiversity on the ranches.<br />

“When photographers shoot at this level of detail, ranchers<br />

are always surprised to see what is calling their habitat home,”<br />

Martin said.<br />

The prize money for the three Pro-Tours alone was $500,000.<br />

“We understand that conservation can’t be driven by desire<br />

alone,” Martin said. “Landowners have to have the financial<br />

resources to keep their land holdings together, thereby<br />

protecting our natural resources.”<br />

For more information ICF and its upcoming events<br />

including its on-going series of Pro-Am tourneys, see<br />

www.ImagesForConservation.org.<br />

While Martin sees the potential in nature photography,<br />

particularly as a way to allow the next generation of<br />

landowners to remain on the ranch, he understands it takes<br />

work to make the enterprise successful.<br />

“It’s not a matter of build it and they will come,” he said.<br />

“Nature photography is a hospitality business. It takes<br />

aggressive, thoughtful marketing to get people’s attention<br />

and then it takes attentive customer service to ensure<br />

they’re satisfied with the experience.”<br />

In addition, it takes infrastructure such as suitable<br />

photo blinds and, depending on the land’s proximity to<br />

town, lodging.<br />

“Photographers live for the golden hours of light early in<br />

the morning and late in the afternoon,” Martin said. “They<br />

don’t particularly like to tack an hour’s pre-dawn or postsunset<br />

drive to a hotel on to their days.”<br />

Nature photography is still a relatively new business on<br />

the Texas landscape; Martin estimates there are 15 ranches<br />

across the state that have fully embraced the enterprise. He,<br />

working like a modern-day Johnny Appleseed, continues<br />

to plant seeds that he hopes will grow into financially<br />

rewarding conservation.<br />

“Using photography to prompt conservation is nothing<br />

new,” Martin said. “In 1872, photographer William Henry<br />

Jackson was part of the three-year Haden Expedition in<br />

Wyoming and Montana. On his return he made prints of the<br />

journey for the President and every member of Congress.<br />

The result? Our first national park. Images create an<br />

emotional connection that prompts action.”<br />

Todd Steele/Shape Ranch

T he TWA Connection<br />

The Texas Wildlife Association understands<br />

that voluntary private land stewardship is the<br />

state’s most powerful force for conservation.<br />

These days, it takes diverse income streams<br />

ranging from livestock production and<br />

hunting to non-consumptive nature tourism<br />

activities like nature photography to keep<br />

land in private hands.<br />

A Case Study: Santa Clara Ranch (Starr County)<br />

The Santa Clara Ranch, located on 300 acres about 40 miles<br />

northwest of Edinburg, is John Martin’s favorite example of<br />

a successful nature photography destination.<br />

“In the mid-80s, the owner Dr. Beto Gutierrez, a native<br />

of Edinburg, Texas, made his way back to South Texas<br />

after a stint in New Mexico where he was practicing<br />

medicine. When he came home, he bought 300 acres and<br />

immediately stocked it with cattle. Soon after the cattle<br />

market nose-dived.<br />

He told me, ‘I bought cattle—and I lost my ass.’<br />

I knew that while he was out-of-state, Dr. Gutierrez<br />

had acquired the skills to become a recreational nature<br />

photographer, so I suggested that he establish a nature<br />

photography destination. This was in 2008. He ran with the<br />

idea, but soon discovered that he didn’t have enough time<br />

to devote to operating a medical practice and developing<br />

a nature photo destination, so he brought in two fellow<br />

photographers to help.<br />

One, Hector Astorga, was a skilled amateur photographer<br />

with roots in Honduras. At the time, he owned another<br />

business, but as he began spending time on the ranch and<br />

discovering its hidden beauty and potential, he switched his<br />

focus. Soon, he was dedicating four to five days a week to<br />

developing and marketing the ranch.<br />

The first steps were identifying prime sites for photo<br />

blinds and optimizing them for photography success. For<br />

instance, the blinds are situated across from a pond and<br />

partially buried so the photographers are on eye-level with any<br />

animals or birds that come into the specially staged habitat.<br />

Hector’s initial marketing efforts consisted of joining<br />

photography forums and posting his stunning nature<br />

photos with both his name and Santa Clara Ranch. The<br />

photos caught the attention of his fellow photographers,<br />

who began inquiring about the chance to shoot at the Santa<br />

Clara. Hector began acting as a manager and a guide.<br />

Eighteen months into the business, they built a lodge—<br />

simple, clean and comfortable—so guests wouldn’t have to<br />

navigate the 40 miles back and forth to the nearest hotel.<br />

Over a period of three intensive years, they built it,<br />

marketed it, and photographers began to come. Eight years<br />

later, the Santa Clara is booked solid from March 1-July 1 with<br />

photographers. The operation nets about $60,000 year solely<br />

on photography and generates about $140,000 in economic<br />

impact in the nearby rural community. I venture to say very<br />

few 300-acre ranches generate that type of income.<br />

To top it off, Hector has gone from being an amateur with<br />

a passion for photography to a professional photographer,<br />

instructor and tour guide with a global reach. In addition to<br />

his workshops at the Santa Clara, he will be leading photo<br />

tours to Honduras and Africa in <strong>2017</strong>.”

John Hendrickson/Rosetta Ranch<br />


A Q&A with a Professional<br />

For the past 15 years, Larry Ditto has been a full-time<br />

nature photographer, a pursuit he has been engaged<br />

in for more than 40 years. Prior to becoming a full-time<br />

photographer, Ditto put his wildlife science degree from<br />

Texas A&M to work as a refuge manager in the U.S. Fish<br />

and Wildlife Service’s National Wildlife Refuge System.<br />

He has focused his camera primarily on South<br />

Texas, but has shot extensively in the West and<br />

Midwest. His work is featured in books such as Texas:<br />

A Photographic Journey and magazines such as<br />

Texas Parks & Wildlife, Texas Highways and Bird<br />

Watcher’s Digest. In 2000, he along with Greg<br />

Lasley won the prestigious Valley Land Fund Wildlife<br />

Photo Contest.<br />

According to Ditto, his science background has given<br />

him an advantage as both a photographer and a leader/<br />

instructor at the nature photography workshops and<br />

instructional photo tours he hosts each year. In addition,<br />

he judges various photography contests and lectures at<br />

nature festivals across Texas.<br />

I caught him on the fly, so to speak, and got his<br />

perspective on nature photography destinations.<br />

LAW: As a<br />

photographer,<br />

what makes a<br />

good nature<br />

photography<br />

destination?<br />

LD: For me, a good<br />

nature photography<br />

destination is one with lots of accessible and<br />

approachable wildlife, especially birds. Most of us who<br />

do this are at the age where “accessible” means we<br />

can drive close or only have to walk a short distance to<br />

get the photos. We all have way too much gear, so that<br />

tends to hold us back from climbing to the mountain<br />

tops, although that can be wonderful, too.<br />

Ranches, parks and wildlands with unusual animals<br />

and birds really attract photographers because we are all<br />

looking for that shot that no one else has—or that critter<br />

that few photographers get to see in a view finder.<br />

This is why South Texas ranches are so successful<br />

as photo destinations. They have green jays, great<br />

kiskadees, Audubon’s orioles, and many other species<br />

that are unusual, colorful and fun to photograph. In the<br />

Hill Country, a ranch with golden-cheeked warblers and<br />

black-capped vireos tends to be more attractive that<br />

other Central Texas locations that have the more typical,<br />

widespread birds.<br />

Landscape is important as well. Backgrounds are a<br />

critical component of most good nature photos, so a<br />

nice earth-tone background is desirable.<br />

Beyond that, photographers will be more<br />

successful if there is good habitat around the area<br />

where we are looking for wildlife: where there is good,<br />

varied habitat there is a lot of wildlife. Of course,<br />

that is more of a land management maxim than a<br />

photography issue.<br />

LAW: From an infrastructure perspective, what do<br />

photographers want and need?<br />

LD: I think most photographers prefer areas with little<br />

human disturbance because part of nature photography<br />

is enjoying the landscape, the solitude, the nature<br />

sounds and the rest. Being immersed in nature makes<br />

the trip worthwhile, even when we aren’t successful in<br />

getting all the images we’d like to capture.<br />

“Social media is an incredibly effective marketing tool for<br />

photography, if you create a consistent presence. Facebook, photo<br />

forums and the rest are hungry beasts and if you engage them, it’s<br />

important that they be fed every day or every other day to create<br />

a following. If you can’t commit to that then you might want to<br />

hire someone to do it for you.” —John Martin<br />

Now, highway access, ranch roads and relatively<br />

comfortable and effective photo blinds are critical, too.<br />

Many photographers fly in for a few days of shooting, so<br />

they often rent small cars that aren’t really designed for<br />

rough, rocky roads.<br />

Most traveling photographers really appreciate a good<br />

map provided by the landowner. A good map and good<br />

roads gives them a lot of security, which they need.<br />

Remember, most of these photographers are urbanites<br />

and they’re not used to being out in the “wild” country.<br />

If photographers visit ranches and parks without<br />

a leader, then they need a ranch guide or very good<br />

signage and orientation from the rancher or printed<br />

literature. Always remember, the photographers are<br />

going to be happiest when they know where they are,<br />

know they are safe from the elements and the critters.<br />



“Starting a nature photography business is just like<br />

starting any other business, you have to have enough<br />

money on hand to run it for three years, so you’re not<br />

undercapitalized as a start-up.” —John Martin<br />

A landowner can’t afford to cut corners on blind<br />

design, comfort, and site planning. Photographers need<br />

places where the animals will gather early and late in<br />

the day and these places need to be oriented so that<br />

nice, warm sunlight comes over the blind and bathes<br />

the animals in yellow and orange light just after sunrise<br />

and before sunset.<br />

Accommodations for sleeping, eating and workshop<br />

discussions are very important to photographers and<br />

workshop leaders. Most of us hate driving back and<br />

forth to a town 40 miles from the ranch. I think you will<br />

find most of the successful photo ranches have these<br />

amenities and the photographers are more than willing<br />

to pay reasonable fees for these items.<br />

LAW: As a teacher/workshop leader, what makes<br />

a good nature photography destination? Are there<br />

different requirements for beginning students versus<br />

advanced students?<br />

LD: We covered a lot of this in the previous question,<br />

but needs do vary a little between beginners and “old<br />

hands.” However, the leaders usually accommodate this in<br />

planning for the trip.<br />

I find that beginners and older photographers really<br />

prefer shooting from the stability and comfort of a blind.<br />

Younger, active photographers are happy to walk a little<br />

and negotiate some reasonably rough terrain if they can<br />

get the subjects they came for.<br />

A meeting room with tables and a lot of electrical<br />

outlets provide good places to share information and<br />

instruction while giving the photographers/students<br />

a place to plug in their computers and work on their<br />

images while recharging camera batteries.<br />

LAW: As both a photographer and workshop leader,<br />

what advice would you give to a landowner who<br />

might be considering adding nature photography to<br />

their ranch as a potential revenue source?<br />

LD: Ranchers considering adding photography to their<br />

operation need to, well actually must, get the advice of<br />

a good, professional photographer who understands<br />

Texas wildlife and habitats and who is aware of what it<br />

takes to lure wildlife and to create photogenic settings<br />

for photographers.<br />

For instance, when I do ranch consultations, I show<br />

the owner where to locate blinds, what brush to chop and<br />

what brush to keep, where to put water and feed, and<br />

how to maintain the site to keep it attractive to wildlife<br />

and photogenic. The landowners get information on how<br />

to build blinds, what kinds of feeders and feeds work<br />

best for birds and other animals. I recommend the kinds<br />

of chairs that are most functional in photo blinds, how<br />

to properly camouflage and design the blind for safety,<br />

weather proofing, temperature and how to make it easy to<br />

get those big lenses set up for wildlife photography.<br />

In addition, I’ll address issues like designing the blind<br />

to take advantage of natural lighting in the fall, winter<br />

and spring—and maybe even summer. Light availability<br />

and proper direction are paramount.<br />

Those landowners who successfully host nature<br />

photographers are usually people who enjoy<br />

photography themselves. Some aspect of this business<br />

will require the owners or their employees to do<br />

something five to seven days per week. They have to<br />

let photographers in and out the front gate, feed them,<br />

house them, fix an occasional flat, provide phone<br />

service and/or WiFi, keep water and feed at each blind<br />

every day, keep the blinds clean, trees along the road<br />

must be trimmed so limbs don’t scratch customers’ car<br />

doors, and much more of that sort of thing.<br />

It is also critical that the owner appreciate the value<br />

of having reptiles, predators and such, as well as birds,<br />

if they want to succeed. Killing every coyote, bobcat<br />

and rattlesnake usually runs against the grain of what<br />

photo ranches are about.<br />

LAW: When you host a photography workshop on a<br />

private ranch, what do you provide and what does<br />

the landowner provide? In other words, what is the<br />

division of labor for an event?<br />

LD: When I take a group to a ranch, I usually make<br />

reservations with the owners for meals, rooms, blinds<br />

and the other “baseline needs,” which keeps the owners<br />

from having to deal with a bunch of photographers who<br />

really aren’t sure of what they will need. I work out the<br />


TEXAS LAND / Roundup Issue<br />

costs with the owners, add my fee and pass that total<br />

along to the photographers.<br />

I try to visit each site before taking groups to the ranch<br />

so I know what to expect. Then, I can help the owners fine<br />

tune things to accommodate most situations.<br />

I provide guide service and photo instruction. Many<br />

ranch owners like to assist me with getting people into<br />

the blinds and preparing the photo set so it lures the<br />

most animals and is as photogenic as possible. For<br />

instance, Larry Jay at Block Creek Natural Area near<br />

Comfort drives us to the blinds, puts out the feed, water<br />

and colorful flowers for background color. I tweak the<br />

blind and setup when we arrive at a blind.<br />

Once we get the group situated, the owner leaves<br />

and I stay and shoot with the photographers. I’m on-site<br />

to take care of problems, help them get their<br />

camera gear working correctly and handle<br />

anything else on the photography end.<br />

LAW: In your opinion, what makes nature<br />

photography such a powerful force for conservation?<br />

LD: Nature photography puts the ordinary people and<br />

voters in direct contact with ranch owners and managers<br />

where they educate each other about personal needs<br />

and perspectives. While photographers give the<br />

landowners another revenue source, their interaction<br />

helps both appreciate the viewpoints of the other.<br />

Many owners are kind of “blown away” to learn<br />

about many critters on their land that they’ve never<br />

seen. They learn firsthand just how important every<br />

type of plant and wildlife species is to the general<br />

public. Ranchers get a charge out of hearing and<br />

seeing how valuable their life’s work has been and will<br />

be to the non-ranch public.<br />

In a nutshell, nature photographers validate the land<br />

manager’s values and sense of importance. When<br />

these folks meet, it’s an educational experience for all,<br />

and everyone leaves feeling fulfilled and with a better<br />

understanding of and appreciation for natural things.<br />

Many lasting friendships are forged in the nature<br />

photography settings. Owners are a lot more likely<br />

to see their roles in a different light. I dare say that<br />

after encountering the passionate respect of nature<br />

photographers, many landowners have—and will—alter<br />

their ranch management activities to further improve<br />

the quality of the habitat, soil, water, and animals, which<br />

in turn improves it for humans.<br />

TEXAS LAND / Market<br />



2016<br />


Following the robust price recovery from 2012<br />

through 2013 when prices surged by seven<br />

to 10.5 percent annually, Texas land markets<br />

seem to have taken a break. Prices remained<br />

almost unchanged in 2015 with a one percent<br />

increase followed by the 2016 increase of 2.8<br />

percent. At $2,501 per acre, the year-end 2016<br />

price retreated modestly from the third-quarter<br />

price level with inflation-adjusted prices<br />

retreating to a modest 1.7 percent increase<br />

over 2015 year-end results. However, that real<br />

price of $434 (in 1966 dollars) set another<br />

record high annual price for the state. The<br />

statewide typical size was 1,119 acres.<br />




Dollars per Acre<br />

Oil price woes continued to plague regional<br />

markets, seeing weak performance the Gulf<br />

Coast–Brazos Bottom, South Texas, and<br />

Austin-Waco-Hill Country regions where land<br />

prices retreated or barely increased over 2015<br />

results. Continued price increases in the West<br />

Texas, Northeast Texas, and Panhandle and<br />

South Plains regions offset the performance in<br />

those weak regions to register the 2.8 percent<br />

statewide rise in prices.<br />

Continuing weakness in prices for agricultural<br />

commodities as well as uncertainty about<br />

oil prices loom as threats to the market for<br />

<strong>2017</strong>. As the year unfolds clarifying trends in<br />

those influences, future land price trends will<br />

become apparent moving reluctant would be<br />

participants to become buyers and sellers.<br />

TEXAS LAND / Roundup Issue<br />








TEXAS LAND / Roundup Issue<br />

When the American Civil War was over, thousands of<br />

Confederate soldiers, being without home or job,<br />

went west to Texas to work on the frontier as cattle<br />

hands for the early cattlemen who chose that wonderful area of<br />

free grass.<br />

They took innovation with them: skills as mule skinners, wild<br />

game hunters, craftsmen of all kinds, and, most important, the<br />

desire to live and work outside.<br />

They acquired new skills of riding stock horses and handling<br />

herds of free-range cattle.<br />

To this new and exciting industry they lent the well-worn “rebel<br />

yell” to the driving of cattle, a yell that was feral in nature and<br />

that would soon become the early version of the cattle call. With<br />

this yell, used to coerce cattle to change directions or just move<br />

forward, these men of renown drove the big herds north from<br />

deep South Texas to northern markets. From this era a new “job<br />

title” was coined—cowboy.<br />

Within 10 years, these strong young men would find<br />

themselves handling a<br />

newly invented ferrous<br />

material, barbed wire.<br />

This new metal product<br />

would forever change<br />

the cattle industry by<br />

fencing the open range.<br />

The open range years<br />

were over. Large crews of<br />

former cowboys suddenly<br />

became ranch fence<br />

builders. They traded<br />

their stock horses for<br />

teams of mules, supply<br />

wagons and post-hole<br />

diggers.<br />

They slept on the ground in all types of weather. The great XIT<br />

Ranch of the Texas Panhandle required 6,000 miles of barbed<br />

wire fence. With this new innovation in ranching came another<br />

new job title—fence hand. This class of unsung men contained<br />

those who fenced and secured our ranches and some of their<br />

early work can still be found today in isolated areas.<br />

The First and Second World Wars changed the lives of many<br />

of these ranch laborers, but at the same time, taught them new<br />

skills, the most important of which was welding.<br />

By the early 1950s, ranchers were replacing weaker, wooden<br />

implements with stronger, longer-lasting metal implements built<br />

by the skilled war-welding cowboys. Soon gates were fashioned<br />

of metal rod and pipe. Even metal war-surplus landing mats,<br />

which had been used in the islands as makeshift runways for<br />

war planes, became ranch gates and working-pen fences.<br />






Soon, metal cattle guards, metal cattle chutes, head gates,<br />

even metal cattle pens were built and installed.<br />

Then came the iconic metal cattle trailer, with more changes on<br />

the way. One day the neighbor had a fancy, new, decorative gate<br />

installed on the county road with the addition of a brand logo<br />

to the gate. Soon, names were written in metal script explaining<br />

who the ranch belonged to, the type of cattle raised therein, and<br />

on, and on.<br />

Today, the sky’s the limit! Life-like figures have been added<br />

to gated ranch entrances in recent years, depicting cowboys<br />

roping, horses bucking, cattle drives, silhouettes of big deer—<br />

you name it, you got it. They just keep on ‘a-comin’. As Butch<br />

Cassidy said, “Who are those guys?”<br />

A ranch owner must have good ranch hands. They are the men<br />

who make the ranch go ‘round. Ranch owners can’t operate with<br />

a transient workforce. Good, strong, stable family men, who love<br />

their work more than their pay, are those men who build and<br />

decorate our ranches.<br />

The Browns of Bee<br />

County in South Texas<br />

are most fortunate to<br />

employ one such man.<br />

Pablo Garcia, our ranch<br />

welder and mechanic, is<br />

the best in the business.<br />

He builds our “stuff.” He<br />

builds anything we ask<br />

him to build and when<br />

done, it is perfect for the<br />

use and nice to look at<br />

as a bonus.<br />

Garcia was raised in our<br />

area and was trained as<br />

a mechanic and welder by<br />

his father. He is a pipeline class welder. He can do it all. He<br />

has built all of our feedlot cattle handling facilities and pens<br />

over the 20 years he has worked for us.<br />

Thanks to him, instead of having to stop and open gates,<br />

we sail quickly over numerous pipe cattle guards built and<br />

installed by him.<br />

The ranch welding shop is his domain and where many of<br />

our tools and implements are constructed as well as repaired.<br />

We also take in outside welding from other ranchers as<br />

time permits. Many of these jobs involve decorative ranch<br />

entrances.<br />

It is an honest statement that we would not be able to ranch<br />

as effectively in this fast-paced society we live in without<br />

Pablo Garcia’s faithful work ethic and the necessities and<br />

conveniences he provides for us through his welding skills.<br />

OF THE<br />


GOOD<br />


Although there was not a right or wrong answer, the<br />

question I posed to Peter John Holt, executive vice<br />

president and general manager of Holt Cat in San<br />

Antonio, wasn’t necessarily fair.<br />

“So if you had to choose between hunting for a muy grande<br />

or sitting courtside at a Spurs play-off game, which would you<br />

choose?”<br />

Holt, whose family owns majority interest in the San Antonio<br />

Spurs, countered, “Playoff game or finals?”<br />

“Finals.”<br />

“That, then, is a very good question,” he said. “Fortunately,<br />

though, I’ve been blessed to harvest my share of big bucks<br />

because deer season in Texas doesn’t run into June and overlap<br />

with the NBA Finals.”<br />

Laughing he admitted that he’d actually been on the horns—<br />

or the claws as it were—of that particular dilemma. It was 2013<br />

and the first time the Spurs squared off against the Miami Heat<br />

in the finals. The series directly conflicted with a long-planned<br />

and long-awaited Montana bear hunt with his closest friends.<br />

“The bear won—literally,” Holt, who is an avid bowhunter, said.<br />

“We walked about 10 miles every day at 10,000 foot altitude and<br />

never pulled the bow. It was a life lesson in patience.”<br />

Holt, a self-described “go-go-go” guy, cherishes his time in<br />

the wilderness because it allows him to slow down and focus on<br />

the things that are important.<br />

“The trip was such a good lesson in the importance of the<br />

journey, not the result,” Holt said. “I was with my best friends.<br />

We saw moose wandering around, elk calving and trout rising<br />

from pristine streams. We were in nature and in the moment.”<br />

He added, “Now don’t get me wrong. I will pick a different<br />

outfitter, go back to Montana and God willing get a bear—but it<br />

was a very good trip.”<br />



TEXAS LAND / Profile<br />


“My dad served on the Texas Parks & Wildlife<br />

Commission. During his tenure, I learned in more detail<br />

what it takes from the public side as well as the private<br />

side to continue our legacy of conservation—and I<br />

encountered TWA for the first time.<br />

Initially, I was involved in the fun stuff like the<br />

convention and the magazine. Then, some good folks<br />

on TWA’s Board of Directors reached out and invited<br />

me to serve on the Executive Committee. I’ll admit that<br />

I’ve been on a learning curve, but am preparing to give<br />

back hopefully.<br />

In my life, I’ve been blessed with some really good<br />

mentors, including Larry Mills, who worked with my<br />

dad and grandad for more than 50 years. Larry helped<br />

us prioritize our hearts’ desires. For me those desires<br />

are wildlife conservation, improving youth through<br />

education and general community progress.<br />

I only join organizations that hit those marks and<br />

where I feel that my skill set can help the organization<br />

achieve its mission and make a meaningful difference.<br />

TWA and I are a good fit.”<br />

In 2016, Holt and his sister, Corinna Holt Richter, began the<br />

process of buying their parents out of Holt Cat, the largest<br />

Caterpillar dealership in the nation. As they take the helm<br />

of a business that can be traced back to their great-great<br />

grandfather, Benjamin Holt, who developed and manufactured<br />

the first track-type tractor, Holt is aware of the legacy.<br />

“It’s an honor to carry on the business,” Holt said.<br />

“Stewarding a legacy business is akin to stewarding a legacy<br />

ranch: we’re providing growth and stability so that the next<br />

generation can participate.”<br />

The Holt family has a long legacy with the land. Peter Holt, an<br />

avid outdoorsman, was born in Peoria, Illinois and reared in an<br />

industry that was directly tied to land. He came to Texas when<br />

his father opened a Caterpillar dealership in Corpus Christi,<br />

which the younger Holt eventually expanded into presentday<br />

Holt Cat. Julianna Hawn Holt grew up as part of a farming<br />

and ranching family who split their time between Nueces and<br />

Gonzales counties.<br />

“My mother and father were the ones who showed me the<br />

value of land ownership and land stewardship in a very personal<br />

way,” Holt said. “My mother introduced me to production<br />

agriculture—and the very important idea that humans can<br />

benefit from the land and give back to the land. My father<br />

taught me the same lesson about wildlife and its management.”<br />

The elder Holts knew that life on the land would teach their<br />

children life lessons and help instill values such as honesty,<br />

innovation and commitment. They lived on a ranch in Blanco<br />

and commuted daily to San Antonio for work and school.<br />

“In hindsight, it had to have been hard on my parents, but<br />

it was great for me,” Holt said. “I got to grow up with horses,<br />

cattle and hunting. I was a bad little kid, who probably got a Red<br />

Ryder BB gun way too early.”<br />

Hunting, whether it was joining family and friends at their<br />

ranches around the state, or getting outdoors on their own<br />

property, was central to the Holt family experience. His<br />

childhood was filled with multi-family jaunts on quail buggies,<br />

where the kids chased lizards and rabbits while the adults set<br />

out after a covey of bob whites, and a lot of early mornings and<br />

late afternoons in deer blinds.<br />

“I really liked hunting with Dad better than Mom just because<br />

Mom was so serious about it,” Holt said. “She loves hunting, but<br />

she’s also very goal-oriented.”<br />

One afternoon Holt, who was eight or nine years old at the<br />

time, was hunting with his mom on the Prade Ranch in Real<br />

County. They had gotten themselves situated in a traditional<br />

rifle blind set up in close proximity to a corn feeder. When the<br />

feeder didn’t go off as scheduled, his mother dispatched young<br />

Holt to set it off. Her final instructions? “Act like a deer.”<br />

“I thought she was teasing, so I just took off walking across<br />

the pasture to the feeder until she opened the window and<br />

made it clear she was not joking,” Holt said.<br />

The youngster took her at her emphatic word.<br />


“I put my fingers up like antlers and started walking slowly—<br />

starting, stopping, sniffing the air and arching my back,” Holt<br />

said. “I finally made it to the feeder and set it off.”<br />

His ruse worked. Later that afternoon, the duo harvested<br />

a doe.<br />

“My mom said, ‘See, I told you. That doe wouldn’t have come<br />

in if you’d bumbled over there like a boy,’” he said. “In hind<br />

sight, hunting has never been just about the results, it’s always<br />

been about the good times.”<br />

Good times tied to the land are experiences that Holt and his<br />

wife, Lauren Kate, actively seek out for their own daughters,<br />

who are one- and three-years-old.<br />

“They already have their own boots,” Holt said. “One of<br />

the greatest joys of my life is taking them out to our place in<br />

Blanco. They don’t know what a fire truck is, but they can<br />

identify a corn feeder.”<br />

The explorers load up in the ranch truck to search for skunks,<br />

foxes and deer, they are always on the lookout for some water to<br />

splash in or mud to play in. It’s not uncommon to stop and have<br />

a visit with the foreman about the status of the grass.<br />

“When one of the girls says, ‘That’s a Hereford,’ it makes me<br />

smile,’” Holt said. “I try to expose them to ranching and the<br />

outdoors as much as I can, so they’ll love it as much as I do.”<br />

Even this early in their lives, the land is leaving a mark.<br />

“It’s fascinating for me to see the positive correlation between<br />

the time they spend on the land and their behavior,” Holt said.<br />

“When we spend time together outside, they’re happier, they<br />

eat better, they sleep better—and they get up ready to do it<br />

again the next day.”<br />

While the land ownership is definitely pleasurable,<br />

Holt embraces the responsibility that is part and parcel<br />

of the privilege.<br />





“As a land steward, my responsibility is to strive for balance<br />

in all things,” Holt said. “Balance, whether it’s introducing<br />

livestock or managing wildlife or optimizing the habitat, is<br />

the key to attain the elusive win-win-win-win-win for the<br />

environment, for wildlife, for agriculture, for society and for<br />

the family.”<br />

Being a good steward and working for the greater good<br />

resonates with Holt.<br />

“What’s the point of making money, having a great<br />

family and going on incredible hunts, if you’re not actively<br />

participating in life’s journey and striving to achieve a higher<br />

purpose,” Holt said. “You have to aim for a higher purpose for<br />

life to be truly worthwhile.”<br />


At a time when many American businesses measure<br />

their success on sheer size and short-term financial<br />

gain, Holt Cat chose another route. Under the<br />

leadership of Peter Holt, the company developed an<br />

operating philosophy that measures success against a<br />

series of ethical principles.<br />

“As a privately held company we have the ability<br />

to do things that a publicly held company can’t such<br />

as running our company based on our family’s core<br />

values,” Peter John Holt said. “We don’t have to blow<br />

in the wind because we have a set of values that guide<br />

every decision whether it’s hiring, compensation,<br />

collaboration, expansion or any other issue of day-today<br />

business.”<br />

Values-Based Leadership, the company culture, is<br />

embraced from the top down and the bottom up.<br />

“Values-Based Leadership is how we are expected<br />

to lead and make decisions and it is how we expect<br />

others to lead and make decisions,” Holt said. “Some<br />

people might argue that core values complicate<br />

doing business, but actually they simplify it. There<br />

is a checklist and clear standards to weigh every<br />

decision against.”<br />

Because the operating philosophy is built on ethics,<br />

its influence reaches beyond the company’s walls.<br />

“My first conscience is God, my second conscience<br />

is my family and my third conscience is Values-Based<br />

Leadership and these core values,” Holt said. “If I’m at<br />

home and trying to cheat the lawn man out of $50, how<br />

can I stand in front of our employees and ask them to<br />

embrace our core values? They are something we live<br />

with every day in every aspect of our lives.”<br />

The approach has been so successful at Holt Cat,<br />

the family has now created a consulting firm to share<br />

the operating philosophy with non-profits, schools and<br />

other organizations that could benefit.<br />

“In business—and in life—doing what’s right is never<br />

a bad thing,” Holt said.<br />

TEXAS LAND / Roundup Issue<br />

LAND<br />









From the expansive, rugged terrain of West Texas<br />

to the lush, rolling estates of the Hill Country, to<br />

working ranches and fertile farmground scattered<br />

throughout the state, Texas is uniquely identified<br />

across the United States and around the world by the diverse<br />

terrain and iconic landscapes that have shaped its history.<br />

For property owners, the unique character and diversity that<br />

defines Texas and draws in visitors from around the world can<br />

create difficulty when the time comes to consider selling.<br />

As a landowner, where do you turn when it’s time to sell your<br />

premium agricultural property?<br />

Traditional real estate markets are very effective when selling a<br />

home or other property with a lower price point. The success<br />

of this approach often relies on market continuity and data<br />

collected from comparable sales—both of which are often<br />

unavailable for one-of-a-kind farm and ranch land.<br />

As the complexity and value of a property increases, the pool<br />

of potential buyers decreases. And in the case of premier farm<br />

and ranch real estate, the higher<br />

value of the property also limits<br />

the number of buyers with the<br />

financial means to purchase. The<br />

result for owners of premium<br />

agricultural land can be pricing<br />

guesswork that may either<br />

overvalue a property and result in<br />

excessive days on the market or<br />

undervalue a property and lead<br />

to a quicker sale but a discounted<br />

return. Even with the very best land agent, unique, high-value<br />

rural properties with a limited pool of potential buyers may<br />

linger on the market with little interest in a traditional listing.<br />

Together, these factors may amount to planning uncertainty,<br />

lost dollars, and indefinite carrying costs for landowners.<br />





The National Auctioneers Association estimates that in 2010,<br />

more than 24 percent of all auctions involved real estate<br />

transactions. And beginning in 2003, residential, farm, and<br />

ranch real estate represented the fastest growing segment of<br />

auctions conducted nation-wide. In 2008, land and agricultural<br />

real estate auctions represented an estimated $26 Billion in<br />

sales volume.<br />

There are a number of key benefits for sellers, brokers, and<br />

buyers alike that can be achieved when offering a property at<br />

auction—and together, the following advantages are making<br />

auctions a more and more frequent choice for discerning<br />

landowners.<br />

Sellers are figuring out that auctions provide an accelerated<br />

marketing alternative that puts them in the driver’s seat and<br />

eliminates the hassle of a drawn-out listing and negotiation<br />

process. An auction brings together a pool of potential buyers<br />

at one time, creating excitement and competition that offers the<br />

fastest way to reveal the true-market-value on any property.<br />

An auction eliminates the<br />

guesswork often required in<br />

pricing high-value, premier<br />

agricultural properties. On<br />

auction day, the auction process,<br />

in real-time, uncovers the market<br />

value of your property.<br />

A successful auction requires<br />

multiple willing and able buyers<br />

competing for a property. Both<br />

through the multi-parcel auction process and a concentrated,<br />

dynamic marketing campaign, the lead-up to auction day must<br />

be thoughtfully executed to maximize the number of bidders<br />

at the table and to enhance the urgency and excitement<br />

generated by a property auction.<br />

But this paradigm is shifting.<br />

Unlike ever before, owners of hard-to-value, premium<br />

agricultural properties are turning to auctions. For too long, the<br />

marketplace has viewed auctions as a last-resort, fire-sale tool<br />

for flawed properties. But thanks to success in the luxury home<br />

market and in the sale of expansive ranches in the northern<br />

tier of the U.S., this perception is changing. From small rural<br />

homesteads to sprawling farmland holdings, customized<br />

auction approaches can and are delivering premium sales<br />

prices for property owners across all parts of Texas.<br />

Multi-parcel (multi-par) auctions divide properties into multiple<br />

tracts, expanding the number of purchasing options – which<br />

in turn expands the pool of potential bidders. Bidders arrive<br />

on auction day with full knowledge of the property and ready<br />

to buy. With the multi-par process, bidders have control over<br />

exactly which property they want with the option to bid on one<br />

tract, bid on a few, or bid on them all!<br />

To achieve a successful outcome on auction day, landowners<br />

should look for a dynamic, professional marketing effort<br />

leading up to sale day that showcases and intensively markets<br />

a property to the audiences most likely to buy. A typical<br />


TEXAS LAND / Roundup Issue<br />

window between the date an auction contract is signed and<br />

sale day often ranges from 30 to 60 days. Working within a<br />

seller-preapproved marketing budget, auction companies<br />

utilize traditional print and radio channels along with online<br />

advertising, direct mail marketing and one-on-one outreach to<br />

make sure there is enthusiasm about a property and energy and<br />

excitement with the broadest pool of potential buyers possible.<br />

Another important tool in a successful land auction is<br />

participation from area land brokers. Incorporating the client<br />

networks of multiple brokers throughout a region not only<br />

multiplies the reach of an auction’s marketing effort but also<br />

brings more interested, qualified bidders to an auction. For<br />

brokers, participating in auctions with their clients can provide<br />

another important tool in their client services portfolio. As a<br />

landowner looks for an auction company, it is important to<br />

find a firm that actively works to engage outside brokers and<br />

agents, and is willing to back that up with a competitive broker<br />

commission.<br />

Auctions put sellers back in the driver’s seat when putting a<br />

premium agricultural property on the market. Giving careful<br />

consideration to external factors such as hunting and growing<br />

seasons, commodity markets, economic factors, and even the<br />

weather, sellers work with their auction company to schedule<br />

a sale date and target closing date designed to maximize a<br />

property’s potential value and best suit the needs of the seller.<br />

As a landowner, this gives you the planning certainty to make<br />

future arrangements—no more waiting on the market to bring<br />

you reasonable offers.<br />

Sellers should also discuss their needs and goals when<br />

determining whether to conduct an absolute auction, giving<br />

buyers the guarantee that the property will sell, or an auction<br />

with reserve, which provides some protection for a seller but<br />

can detract from the excitement and enthusiasm inherent to<br />

an absolute auction. Most importantly, with an auction, there’s<br />

no more waiting weeks, months, or even years to receive a<br />

reasonable offer. You force the market to bring the offers to<br />

you! Bidders come to your auction prepared to buy, with no<br />

contingencies.<br />

commission is typically covered by a buyer’s premium added to<br />

the high bid price to arrive at a final sales contract price. Sellers<br />

can anticipate gross proceeds that are roughly equal to the high<br />

bid price on the property being sold.<br />

Whether simply looking for renewed energy on a property that<br />

has been listed for some time or seeking the planning certainty<br />

that comes from a definite sale and closing date, an auction is<br />

the smart choice to market and sell your property. But not all<br />

auction companies are created equal.<br />

Would you hire an appliance salesman to sell your home or<br />

a landscaper to remodel your kitchen? Why then would you<br />

consider using a real estate salesperson who specializes in<br />

marketing homes or commercial properties or an auction<br />

company who focuses on equipment auctions to sell your<br />

premium farm, ranch, or agribusiness? When the time comes to<br />

consider selling a premium farm or ranch property, it’s critical to<br />

find a broker and auction company with experience in farm and<br />

ranch land. An agent or broker with expertise in selling luxury<br />

resorts or commercial properties may not have the experience<br />

to showcase your unique farm or ranch land. The approach to<br />

marketing premier agricultural properties should be as unique<br />

as the land itself. And if you’re looking for a premium result,<br />

why trust anything less than a premium marketing effort by an<br />

auction company with hands-on agricultural experience?<br />

Focused on people, partnerships, and results, Legacy<br />

Land Auctions is committed to being the leading<br />

agricultural properties. Contact us today to<br />

Ranch on Top<br />


PRICE: $24,965,919<br />

Ranch on Top has been reconfigured to its original acreage of<br />

45,393 acres. An 8,400x100-foot paved runway is next to the<br />

headquarters with two cross caliche and grass strips of 4,500 and<br />

5,000 feet. Alamo Canyon and several canyons cut into the<br />

ranch boundary, providing excellent habitat for mule deer<br />

and other game and non-game animals. Ranch on Top is<br />

very usable and accessible while still having mountain<br />

views and scenic vistas.<br />

Ranch on Top, is just that, a ranch on top of a<br />

high desert plateau of yucca grasslands and<br />

steep rims and vegetated canyon heads.<br />

This vast ranch lies in an elevation range<br />

of 4,250 to 5,182 feet, allowing<br />

for a mix of vegetation from<br />

the mid—high Chihuahuan<br />

Desert such as Spanish<br />

dagger, yucca, sotol,<br />

and cholla with main<br />

grassland of blue<br />

grama, grama,<br />

sideoats,<br />

tobosa,<br />

black grama, tobosa, bear grass, and cane bluestem to broad<br />

creosote grass flats and vegetated canyons.<br />

Ranch on Top is an island grassland habitat for a large population of<br />

mule deer, pronghorn, blue quail, mourning dove, white wing dove,<br />

javelina, and many other game and non-game species. Rugged<br />

canyons next to lush grasslands are perfect to support a very large<br />

population of desert mule deer where one can find many trophy<br />

class animals. This grassland is known also for some of the highestscoring<br />

pronghorn. Here you can still find large populations that<br />

have not been diminished like many parts of the trans-pecos.<br />

The headquarters, built in the 1970s has numerous houses, buildings,<br />

outbuildings, and a trap shooting course, as well as a huge airport<br />

and hangar. The following is a list of just some of the buildings:<br />

owners home, foreman’s house, guest house and lodge, workers<br />

house, workshop and barn, back-up generator barn, 150x140-foot<br />

hangar with 14x60-foot doors, saddle room, horse trap and stalls,<br />

working pens, hay barn and water.<br />

There are four shallow wells and one deep well providing<br />

water for cattle, wildlife and domestic use. The shallow<br />

wells are excellent sweet water from solar pumps and<br />

submersible electric pumps. The deep well is 2,100<br />

feet and produces a little saltier water in huge<br />

volumes, but adequate for livestock needs<br />

on the ranch. There is an additional pump<br />

jack well on the preacher ranch which<br />

is the smaller tract to the east.<br />

As the<br />

director of Farm<br />

& Ranch at Keller Williams<br />

Realty International (KWRI) and the<br />

owner of Mock Ranches, Kasey Mock is a<br />

man on the move.<br />

“I don’t sit still very well, unless I’m hunting,” Mock,<br />

who is a native of Kyle in Hays County, said. “While I love<br />

the fast-pace and can’t imagine ever doing anything not<br />

involving land, people and business, there are days I envy<br />

mountain men just a bit. I love the solitude of leading a<br />

pack train in the western mountains.”<br />

Actually, it was his passion for the outdoors that<br />

prompted Mock, in 2009, to found Fever Pursuit, a<br />

consulting business designed to help landowners and<br />

outfitters maximize trophy hunting opportunities. It was the<br />

first company, in what has become a family of businesses,<br />

created by the serial entrepreneur.<br />

“At the time, I was working for [Texas AgriLife]<br />

Extension, which gave me the opportunity to work directly<br />

with a lot of landowners—and see what their needs were,”<br />

Mock, a graduate of Tarleton State University, said. “Fever<br />

Pursuit allowed me to fill in a niche in the marketplace, help<br />

landowners and do what I love.”<br />

Ranch real estate was a natural outgrowth of the initial<br />

business.<br />

“One day, as I was helping a landowner understand<br />

the highest and best use of his property. It turned out the<br />

landowner had used an agent to buy a small ranch, and the<br />

agent had sold him the wrong one, prompting me to ask<br />

myself, ‘Who’s the land professional here?’” Mock said.<br />

“Because I was delivering experience and expertise, it<br />

made sense that I should position myself to earn more than<br />

a consulting fee, so I drew up a business plan with partners<br />

to get into real estate.”<br />

And, there was a natural synergy between the outdoors<br />

enterprise and ranch real estate.<br />

“Fever Pursuit is a sales funnel to the real estate<br />

business,” Mock said. “It introduces us to landowners,<br />

outfitters and their clients, all of whom have an interest<br />

in land. Through our work in the hunting enterprise, our<br />

clients learn to trust us, so when they need ranch real<br />

estate they turn to us.”<br />

In Mock’s world, there is no such thing as “one and<br />

done,” so his team continues to serve clients after the sale.<br />

“It’s not enough just to connect at the point of<br />

sale,” Mock said. “My team and I have to deliver value<br />

throughout a business relationship. It’s the only way clients<br />

will give you permission to stay in front of them.”<br />

One of Mock’s recent value-adds is a podcast called<br />

Bucks To Business. During the hour-long segments, Mock<br />

interviews entrepreneurs who have succeeded in outdoor-<br />


TEXAS LAND / Profile<br />

Kasey Mock:<br />

A Man on the Move<br />




TEXAS LAND / Profile<br />

based businesses. While there may be a few hunting stories<br />

swapped, this is not a digital campfire. Instead, the guests share<br />

the secrets of their business success.<br />

“Our goal is to learn with our listeners,” Mock said. “It is a<br />

win-win: it gives our guests a larger platform for their business<br />

while expanding our network. Plus, because the information is<br />

valuable, it creates an engaged community and another sales<br />

funnel.”<br />

At this writing, the podcasts are a relatively new addition.<br />

In fact, the team is just completing its ninth episode, but the<br />

segments are already gaining a foothold in the market. Without<br />

spending a single dollar on promotion, more than 1,000 people<br />

per episode have downloaded the broadcasts.<br />

“It’s the long game and something different,” Mock said. “As<br />

a young guy in the ranch real estate industry, I can either do<br />

things the way that people have always done them or try to stir<br />

it up. I’m a stirrer.”<br />

The Keller-Williams Connection<br />

Mock appreciates the positive power of mentoring.<br />

“Throughout my life, I’ve been blessed to have good<br />

coaches and mentors,” Mock said.<br />

One of the most influential has been Gary Keller, COB and<br />

co-founder of Keller Williams Realty, the largest real estate<br />

company in the world. They met about six years ago.<br />

“Gary’s success comes from investing in people,” Mock<br />

said. “He likes people who think big and drive hard. Our lives<br />

intersected when I was ready for my next opportunity.”<br />

Mock had identified ranch real estate as his next business<br />

arena and he asked Keller for his advice about getting into the<br />

land brokerage business. Keller told Mock it was about time and<br />

he then coached him through writing a business plan.<br />

After that Mock met Mary Tennant, who was then serving<br />

as President of KWRI. They, too, developed a mentoring<br />

relationship. While Mock embraced the company’s philosophy<br />

and respected the company’s top leadership, there was a<br />

problem. KWRI was a residential company.<br />

Unbeknownst to Mock, there was a group of highlyrespected<br />

ranch brokers serving on a leadership council within<br />

the company and working toward developing a farm and ranch<br />

division. Mock joined the leadership council.<br />

“KWRI was built on the principle that if it’s good for the agent<br />

then it’s good for the company long-term,” Mock said. “We<br />

followed suit in the farm and ranch division, asking ourselves:<br />

How can we build a platform where agents would never want to<br />

leave?”<br />

As plans for the farm and ranch division were finalized, Keller<br />

Williams asked Mock to lead the new division’s launch and then<br />

stay on as its director. Mock seized the opportunity.<br />

To give KW Farm & Ranch the attention it deserved, Mock<br />

pulled back on his own business for a year. Then, he jumped<br />

back into production with Mock Ranches, running a lean team<br />

consisting of himself, a certified assistant and two referring<br />

associates. This year, he will hire two full-time land specialists.<br />

Mock Ranches is a Keller Williams Team, which gives the<br />

boutique firm the power of the international giant’s marketing,<br />

technology and training prowess. In 2015 for instance,<br />

Training Magazine named Keller Williams as the “#1 Training<br />

Organization in the World.”<br />

“We can bring the resources of the largest real estate<br />

company in the world to bear along with the personal service<br />

that people expect when they are making what is generally the<br />

largest expenditure in their lives,” Mock said. “It’s a winning<br />

combination for everyone involved.”<br />

Putting together a deal that is a win-win for everyone seated<br />

at the table is important to Mock. For him, the best deals are not<br />

always the biggest. One of his most memorable deals involved<br />

two ranches and an agreement between neighbors. The sellers<br />

hadn’t listed their property, but the buyers wanted to secure<br />

it as a hedge against development in rapidly developing Hays<br />


Mission, Values, Beliefs, Perspective<br />

Mission: To build businesses that matter, with people we value, while helping<br />

others realize their dreams.<br />

Values: The Best IDEAS – Innovation, Determination, Entrepreneurship,<br />

Accountability, Service<br />

Beliefs: That great businesses are defined by amazing people with innovative ideas.<br />

Perspective: A family of companies built on the foundations of faith, hard work<br />

and innovation that services landowners, businesses and outdoor enthusiasts.<br />


County. Over time, Mock negotiated a deal where the sellers<br />

were able to relocate and purchase a larger ranch and the<br />

buyers added a key piece to their legacy ranch, on which they<br />

established long-term conservation goals.<br />

“We were able to help everyone involved ensure their land<br />

legacy,” Mock said. “They each had a piece of Texas to call<br />

their own—a place where their stewardship would leave a mark<br />

for the future. It just doesn’t get much better than that.”<br />

A Family of Businesses Built on Family<br />

Hard work is Kasey Mock’s not-so secret ingredient for success.<br />

“I had the best parents ever; they taught us value of hard<br />

work while we were growing up on a small farm in Kyle,” Mock<br />

said. “My twin brother and I had our first job outside of the family<br />

when we were seven years old. We hoed cotton for a neighbor.”<br />

The Mock twins and their younger sister spent their<br />

formative years in livestock show rings. The trio wanted to be<br />

competitive at the major shows, but their budget didn’t allow<br />

them to buy the elite animals necessary to get the judge’s nod.<br />

The youngsters assessed the assets of their small operation,<br />

which included 80 Boer-cross goats, 15 sows and a handful of<br />

show cattle.<br />

Led by brother Kevin, they set out to learn the show industry<br />

and put together brood stock that allowed them to produce<br />

high-quality prospects. By the time his sister, who is four years<br />

younger than the twins, made it to high school, the family team<br />

was raising animals that consistently earned her spots in the<br />

winner’s circle, including a Reserve Grand Champion at the<br />

Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, and in the all-important<br />

sales at every major livestock show in the state. In the process,<br />

they also created a business that positioned Mock’s twin to go<br />

to the top of that industry, producing champion livestock for<br />

young people across the nation.<br />

“In life, you can either see challenges or opportunities,”<br />

Mock said. “You can wish for it or you can work for it. In our<br />

family, working trumped wishing.”<br />

After graduating from high school in nearby Kyle, Mock<br />

headed to Stephenville. At Tarleton State University, he<br />

earned his Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Services and<br />

Development, a degree designed to prepare students for<br />

ag. careers in either teaching or outreach education such as<br />

AgriLife Extension.<br />

“Initially, I accepted a job in Extension and I learned a<br />

lot about team management, scheduling and the resources<br />

available to landowners,” Mock said. “But opportunities in<br />

private land industries called more loudly and quickly got my<br />

attention.”<br />

Something, well actually, someone else had already gotten<br />

his attention. When Mock was a senior, he was attending a Bible<br />

study where he crossed paths with a freshman from Lometa<br />

named Elizabeth Maddox.<br />

“Although I didn’t know her very well, I was smart enough to<br />

know that I couldn’t let her get away,” Mock said.<br />

The young couple married and made their home in Hays<br />

County. Elizabeth earned both her Bachelor’s degree and her<br />

Master’s from nearby Texas State University. Today, though, she<br />

is the work-at-home mother of two-year-old Maddox West who<br />

will be joined by a baby sister in May.<br />

“She’s the best mother I know,” Mock said. “My family<br />

inspires me to deliver my best every day.”<br />

While Mock is driven to be successful for his family and his<br />

clients, he knows that success can be a two-edged sword if not<br />

managed properly. To that end, he relies on a piece of wisdom<br />

he received as part of the KWRI team: “what you focus on<br />

expands.”<br />

“Essentially, it is a reminder that as businesspeople we have<br />

to focus only on the core activities that bring us closer to our<br />

goals,” Mock said. “By keeping focused, you make the most of<br />

your time, which in turn gives you time back to spend with the<br />

people you cherish.”<br />

When Mock isn’t building a business, he and Elizabeth serve<br />

at their church and enjoy the outdoors together doing things<br />

like backpacking and hunting elk in Colorado.<br />

Mock said “I think about this daily—’If today were the last<br />

day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’<br />

- Steve Jobs. For me, the answer is yes.”<br />

Fredericksburg “True West” Ranch<br />


If the Western and Native American culture is your passion, here is a very unique reinvented 1841 timber and frame home like no other available<br />

anywhere. Simple clean lines on the exterior, yet rustic extravagance is expressed throughout the interior of both the main home and the guest<br />

house. Accessories such as doors and hinges are either handmade or original from historic buildings, rawhide lighting fixtures with hand-crafted<br />

Western scenes, baths customized with limestone walk-in showers and extraordinarily beautiful hand rubbed and polished mesquite vanities<br />

supported by mesquite trunk bases, the likes of which cannot be duplicated. This one-of-a-kind property includes 6.29 acres with a barn/tack<br />

room, pipe-fenced corral, round pen, and pastures for your horses and is located a mere three miles outside of popular Fredericksburg, touted as<br />

the “Napa Valley of Texas”. If you are someone who appreciates the rare, unique, and very distinctive, then you’ll love this property.<br />

TEXAS LAND / Roundup Issue<br />

<strong>Spring</strong>time<br />

THU NDER<br />


We were set up against the base of a couple<br />

of big bull mesquite trees, overlooking a<br />

dry creek wash that was lined in mature<br />

hackberries which provided a perennial roosting site<br />

for turkeys. As the dark of night was giving way to the<br />

gray shades of morning, an ominous Texas spring-time<br />

storm was easing our way. We had yet to hear the first<br />

sign of confirmation that the roost was even occupied,<br />

which already had me thinking about a quick move<br />

to a Plan B, when the distant thunder of the storm let<br />

out a loud rumble, followed by a resounding chorus<br />

of some dozen gobbling turkeys. 20 minutes later,<br />

five long-beards came strutting into our view and as<br />

the third bird cleared the agarita 27 paces away, my<br />

client folded that big old gobbler with a load of #6<br />

heavy shot. As we admired the beautiful bird, while<br />

still enjoying the distant sounds of the storm and the<br />

gobblers, my client and business mentor Dick Laros<br />

extolled, “I never grow tired of hunting turkeys during<br />

the spring. In fact, out of all the game that I’ve hunted<br />

over the far reaches of North America and on several<br />

other continents, my favorite hunt is a toss-up between<br />

Cape buffalo on the mopane flats of the Zambezi Valley<br />

and calling gobblers in the cactus-laden country of<br />

West Texas.”<br />

THE BIRD<br />

In Texas, and elsewhere, the history of the wild turkey<br />

is one of the great wildlife conservation success<br />

stories. Though their numbers were plentiful during<br />

the first half of the 1800s, by the early 1900s these<br />

birds were on the brink of extirpation from most of their<br />

historic ranges, principally because of unregulated<br />

killing of the birds, along with the loss of critical<br />

habitat in certain locales. But, in the words of Aldo<br />

Leopold, “Game can be restored by the creative use<br />

of the same tools which have heretofore destroyed<br />

it,” and that’s certainly the case with the success of<br />

wild turkey restoration. Through a cooperative effort<br />

between hunters, private landowners, and state wildlife<br />

agencies, restoration programs were implemented<br />

using translocation of turkeys, sound regulations, and<br />

habitat management practices as the platforms for an<br />

amazing comeback of our country’s largest gamebird.<br />

Restoration funds were largely generated through<br />

hunting-related sources including hunting license fees,<br />

Pittman-Robertson funds (excise tax on sporting arms<br />

and ammo), and through sportsman’s groups.<br />

Today, Texas is home to more wild turkeys than any<br />

state in the country, supporting an estimated 600,000-<br />

plus birds, located in all but about 30 of Texas’ 254<br />

counties. The Rio Grande strain is by far the most<br />

numerous and widely distributed of the three strains<br />

found in Texas, but there are a modest number of<br />

Eastern birds in some East Texas counties, along with a<br />

very limited number of Merriam’s birds in a small area<br />

of the Tran-Pecos.<br />



TEXAS LAND / Roundup Issue<br />

THE HUNT<br />

It’s been said that if turkeys had a decent sense<br />

of smell, they would be darn near impossible to<br />

successfully hunt. These birds have uncanny eyesight<br />

and hearing, which makes for a great hunting<br />

challenge, especially if you are hunting them in the<br />

traditional style of calling them in to within reasonable<br />

shotgun or archery range. The general spring turkey<br />

season for Rio Grande birds is six weeks long, with the<br />

south zone beginning on the third Saturday of March,<br />

two weeks earlier than the start of the north zone.<br />

The Eastern spring gobbler season is four weeks in<br />

length, beginning on the third Saturday of April. Some<br />

of the more popular hunting counties for Rios in the<br />

North Zone include Tom Green, Sutton, Schleicher,<br />

Concho, and McCulloch, while some of the more noted<br />

South Texas counties include Kleberg, Willacy, Brooks,<br />

Uvalde, and Zavalla. However, there are many great<br />

turkey hunting locales that are found in a host of other<br />

counties that are not mentioned here.<br />

Equipment requirements for hunting these birds during<br />

the spring include camo from head to toe, standard<br />

turkey calls, bug spray, and a gun or bow of choice.<br />

Turkey hunting purists generally frown on the use of<br />

rifles. Personally, I prefer a 12-gauge shotgun with<br />

#6 shot, and it’s my opinion that a 20-gauge can be<br />

a bit too light for these big birds. It is important to<br />

pattern your gun with the load of choice and to aim<br />

accordingly, taking into consideration the pellet density<br />

pattern. The vital kill zone of a turkey is the head and<br />

neck area if using a shotgun.<br />

Proper techniques for hunting these amazing birds is best<br />

accrued through some mentoring from a seasoned turkey<br />

hunter to establish some basics, and then fine-tuning<br />

those skills through the tribulations of trial and error. Like<br />

hunting elk during the bugle, it’s the interaction between<br />

the hunter and the quarry that makes spring turkey<br />

hunting so exciting and unique. When combined with the<br />

pleasantries of a nice Texas spring, this provides a hunting<br />

experience that’s hard to beat.<br />


Wildlife Systems, Inc. (WSI) is a hunting and wildlife<br />

management firm that was started in 1987. In addition<br />

to offering hunts for a wide variety of other game<br />

and exotics, WSI is one of the premier turkey hunting<br />

outfitters in Texas. This company conducts spring<br />

turkey hunts on over 100,000 acres in both the north<br />

and south zones, encompassing many different<br />

properties. These hunts are typically set up as a 2.5–3<br />

day hunt, including meals, lodging, guide, and game<br />

care. Guiding can be as basic as the guide dropping<br />

the hunters out at prime locations and allowing the<br />

hunter to do their own calling, or the guide can stay<br />

with the hunter providing the calling services for<br />

the client. Lodging varies from ranch style cabins to<br />

luxurious facilities. WSI also offers a limited number of<br />

unassisted turkey hunts where hunters do their own<br />

cooking and guiding, and lodging may or may not be<br />

included. Most packages that are provided by WSI<br />

include a 2 bird limit, but one unique package offers a<br />

combination of one turkey, one javelina, and one hog.<br />

TEXAS LAND / Roundup Issue<br />

Water for Wildlife<br />



V<br />

alues associated with wildlife are significant and<br />

diverse. It’s been estimated that the economic impact<br />

of hunting and fishing in Texas contributes over $3.3<br />

billion annually to our state’s economy. Additionally,<br />

people not only simply value wildlife from a monetized<br />

standpoint, but also in other contexts, as well. These other<br />

diverse values of wildlife may include recreational, aesthetic,<br />

spiritual, emotional, and ecological values. Thus, attention to<br />

providing requisites for enhanced wildlife habitability is not<br />

only good for wildlife, but it’s good for society. Since much of<br />

Texas is often described as an arid to semi-arid environment,<br />

there exists plenty of opportunities through creative, financial,<br />

and sweat equities to invest in water as a means of providing a<br />

better home for wild creatures and for people.<br />

Water as a Nutrient<br />

When discussing nutrients as part of the wildlife management<br />

conversation, it seems that there tends to be more gravitation<br />

toward discussing supplemental feeding and forage<br />

management, with water being an afterthought in many of<br />

these discussions. Protein pellets and food plots tend to be<br />

sexier than the colorless,<br />

tasteless, and odorless<br />

properties of water.<br />

However, make no mistake,<br />

when it comes to servicing<br />

the diverse function of the<br />

living body, water reigns<br />

king. Water is intricately<br />

involved with transport of<br />

other nutrients, oxygen,<br />

and waste into and out of<br />

the cells. It contains several<br />

necessary electrolytes, it<br />

is critical in the digestive<br />

process, and even acts as<br />

a cushioning component<br />

for joints, spinal cord, and<br />

brain. Though water has no<br />

calories, it does serve as a medium for chemical reactions that<br />

are part of our normal bodily processes including the metabolic<br />

reactions involved in energy production. So, when discussing<br />

strategies for growing bigger deer, more quail, and creating<br />

greater wildlife diversity for backyard pleasure, it may be wise to<br />

move water to the front of the discussion line.<br />

Sources and Catchments<br />

When we think of how water ends up on our landscape, many<br />

people tend to think of that which falls from the sky. Indeed, the<br />

moisture that we receive from our atmosphere is necessary for<br />

our planet’s survival, and when you look across the lands of<br />

Texas, the water that you see in the form of dirt tanks, lakes,<br />

rivers, and potholes, is almost exclusively the result of rainfall.<br />

But let’s be reminded that there are some locales where soil<br />

types are simply not conducive for holding water, as the porosity<br />

may be too great. And as already mentioned, many areas of the<br />

state have long stretches in-between rainfall events, creating an<br />

environment where evaporation, percolation, and water usage<br />

simply exceeds what is captured from rainwater run-off. There<br />

are ways to manage around some of this shortfall, such as lining<br />

dirt tanks with bentonite clay or even using artificial liners, but<br />

droughts can still create problems when we are strictly relying<br />

on rainwater in arid regions.<br />

The other primary source for creating available surface water<br />

for the benefit of wildlife (and livestock), is by pumping it from<br />

the depths of the earth to the surface of the land, and then<br />

distributing it and making it available through drinking devices.<br />

The primary options for pumping groundwater to the surface is<br />

either through windmills or submersible pumps. Once pulled to<br />

the surface of ground, the now available water is often stored<br />

in an artificial tank, and is then delivered to a trough or drinker.<br />

Troughs are typically in the form of cement, plastic, or metal<br />

containers. Large properties will often feature extensive pipeline<br />

infrastructure where miles of pipelines are laid, generally<br />

through PVC, or these<br />

days, through polyethylene<br />

pipe, which is more durable<br />

than traditional PVC.<br />

Guzzlers are another option<br />

for providing wildlife water<br />

in arid regions or locales<br />

where groundwater is not<br />

available. The guzzler<br />

concept is typically based<br />

on having an apron which<br />

increases the collection<br />

area from rainwater, and<br />

the apron will funnel into<br />

a storage container that is<br />

fully enclosed to reduce<br />

evaporation, and is then<br />

fed through a pipe into a small drinker. Guzzlers have been<br />

especially popularized through some of the desert bighorn<br />

restoration projects in Texas and elsewhere.<br />

Distribution Counts<br />

Since water can be a weak link in the habitability matrix for<br />

a variety of wildlife, one of the fundamental premises is that<br />

increased distribution of water allows for increased usable<br />

space for those localized populations of wildlife. Thus, there is<br />

enhanced efficiency in making use of all habitat features across<br />

the landscape by bridging this distribution of use through water<br />

provisions. Increased water distribution addresses fragmented<br />

characteristics of habitat, minimizing “island-affects” and<br />

helping to transform patchy habitat characteristics into larger<br />

livable space for those populations of wildlife living in those<br />



TEXAS LAND / Roundup Issue<br />

areas. In addition to increasing wildlife population numbers<br />

through improved water distribution, these same populations<br />

tend to also be more stable with greater resilience to various<br />

environmental pressures.<br />

Don’t Forget the Small Critters<br />

Accessibility to surface water is sometimes an overlooked feature<br />

when water troughs are implemented. The limiter for accessibility<br />

is generally created through too much distance from the top of the<br />

trough to the surface of the water. Fawns, birds, small mammals,<br />

and even reptiles are sold short when they cannot access the<br />

water. This accessibility issue can be easily mitigated by stacking<br />

large rocks at one end of the trough, or using expanded metal<br />

that is shaped like inverted V and provides a sloping platform<br />

for crawling up from the ground and down to the water’s edge,<br />

or even wiring a log to the side of the trough; anything creates a<br />

perch for accessing the water. Overflows are also great ways to<br />

create wildlife-friendly watering locations.<br />

Water and Tax Consequences<br />

Passed in 1995, Proposition 11 allows Texas private landowners<br />

to qualify for their 1-d-1 Open Space Ag. Valuation through a<br />

provision of wildlife management use. Part of the requirements<br />

of this ad valorem tax valuation is an approved wildlife<br />

management plan that includes at least three of the seven<br />

designated wildlife management practices, including water<br />

development. Thus, another important feature of private<br />

landowners actively implementing water improvements for<br />

wildlife, is that this investment may be applied toward a wildlife<br />

valuation, should the landowner choose to go that route. The<br />

central appraisal district (CAD) within each county can provide<br />

more details, or you can consult a private consultant, such as<br />

Wildlife Consultants, LLC.<br />

Texas Wildlife Association (TWA) had another busy year in<br />

2016. We added some new staff members, along with their<br />

energy and fresh ideas, to the TWA team.<br />

Staff and volunteer efforts to drive recruitment and retention<br />

by focusing on value, outreach, and incentives pushed our<br />

membership to about 10,000. It’s invigorating to see TWA’s<br />

message resonate with our fellow Texans.<br />

Our education programs reached 661,000 Texans achieving<br />

a new high watermark this year. Our Texas Big Game Award<br />

banquets had more attendees and entries than ever before.<br />

Our Texas Youth Hunting Program hosted nearly 200 hunts<br />

which put about 1,200 young Texans in the field. Let there<br />

be no doubt, these programs make a difference for Texas:<br />

eyes are opened, lessons are learned, hunters are made, and<br />

conservationists are born.<br />

At this writing, the Texas Legislature has just convened its 85th<br />

Session. TWA is fully engaged on behalf of our members. We<br />

are keeping a vigilant eye on all land, water and wildlife issues.<br />

During this session we hope to advance meaningful reforms to<br />

eminent domain statutes, establishing more equitable treatment<br />

for rural landowners. We are fortunate to not only have strong<br />

partners but the “high ground” on the argument. We will<br />

continue working to maintain responsible disease management<br />

in our wildlife resources, which includes sufficient funding<br />

for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the Texas<br />

Animal Health Commission. We will also be standing for the<br />

established ownership of groundwater as private property.<br />

The makeup of the Texas Legislature reflects our state’s<br />

massive rural/urban imbalance, creating headwinds for our<br />

policy priorities. It’s only through active engagement and<br />

organized efforts with like-minded organizations that we can<br />

hold the line for our great state’s remaining wild, open spaces.<br />

Just as TWA needs partners for our policy efforts, we need<br />

partners for our Texas Youth Hunting Program. Please take a<br />

moment to reflect on this past hunting season and consider<br />

whether you had time to host a hunt on your property or to<br />

volunteer to help with a hunt.<br />

As I mentioned, TYHP hosts about 200 hunts a year with just<br />

five staff members. Oftentimes, there will be 20 or more hunts<br />

running simultaneously on any given weekend. How do we do it?<br />

With the generous support of volunteers and willing landowners.<br />

These hunts get young Texans, who have little or no other<br />

opportunity to hunt, out in the field. They are accompanied by<br />

their parent or guardian and are under the tutelage of trained<br />

volunteers. We incorporate educational activities and the<br />

“gospel” of land stewardship into each hunt.<br />

This program has a huge impact. For many of these kids, this is<br />

not only the first time they will experience Texas’s rich wildlife<br />

resources, but it is the first time they’ve ever seen stars in<br />

the night sky or heard the birds awaken at sun rise. If you’re<br />

interested in helping, please contact us at the TWA office at<br />

(800) 839-9453. In our experience, the landowners who are<br />

hosting hunts get as much—or more—out the weekend as the<br />

young hunters.<br />

Each summer we host the TWA Annual Convention at the J.W.<br />

Marriott Hill Country Resort and Spa in San Antonio. This year it<br />

will be held July 13–15. Mark your calendars now. Visit<br />

www.Texas-Wildlife.org to register.<br />

The educational programs are second to none; the trade show<br />

is one of the best in the state; the speakers are engaging;<br />

the fellowship is welcoming; the food is great; the drinks are<br />

cold, and the accommodations are first-class. As part of the<br />

weekend, we host the statewide Texas Big Game Awards,<br />

a Private Lands Summit and a Grand Auction with items<br />

of exceptional quality, including hunts that are unavailable<br />

elsewhere. This convention helps fund our programs, but more<br />

importantly it gives our members—new and old—a chance to<br />

get together to celebrate the wildlife of Texas.<br />

As a fellow enthusiast for Texas’s open spaces, thanks for all<br />

that you do to care for them.<br />


TEXAS LAND / Roundup Issue<br />



Is cash still king? It would still seem so to your TLBN broker<br />

members. It is without surprise that the market conditions<br />

across Texas vary, and often with very significant drivers.<br />

Ranches with a strong recreational component and within<br />

reach of a large city, still see quite strong sales, especially<br />

in those of higher quality. Ranches and farms with a strong<br />

production agriculture component have found sales hard to<br />

come by, yet inventory is still remarkably light in most regions.<br />

With the continued financial squeeze on commodities, most<br />

would predict this trend to continue. Nearly across all sectors,<br />

inventory is tight, and evidence would suggest that for most<br />

rural properties equity is not an issue, for buyers or sellers. So,<br />

cash is still king for now. Likely a great time to get your farm or<br />

ranch on the market.<br />






The Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA)<br />

hosted their <strong>2017</strong> Cattlemen at the Capitol event this week in<br />

Austin, Texas. They kicked the event off on Tuesday night with a<br />

reception at The Driskill hotel, where many state officials attended<br />

and visited with leaders from the association. TSCRA leaders were<br />

at the Texas State Capitol on Wednesday where they met with<br />

Governor Greg Abbott, Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, Speaker Joe<br />

Straus and more than 50 other State Senators and Representatives<br />

about legislative priorities for the 85th Legislative Session.<br />

The most prevalent topic of conversation was the need for<br />

eminent domain reform. To learn more about eminent domain<br />

reform efforts visit TexansForPropertyRights.com.<br />
