The current owners have installed a complete water line system on the entire ranch. There is an approximate 120 MILES of water lines supplying stock water to 450± water troughs through out the ranch.

191 BC found BuckEl Seco is hunted for native white tail deer. The ranch receives up to 100 deer permits annually from the Mexican government but has chosen to "sell" only 20-25 per year for management/consevation/hunter
enhancement purposes. Hunts have been sold the last few years at $5,000.00± per buck. The white tail population is improving after the completion of the watering system and several 160± bucks have been inventoried. A 191 points Boone and Crockett buck was found dead in pasture after last year's season. Wildlife on ranches is abundant. Mountain lions are seen on a regular basis and Mexican brown bear have also been seen on ranch. Blue quail and dove population are also outstanding.

Amistad Lake view - El Seco PastureThis property is almost entirely in native cover. There have been limited attempts to improve pasture conditions by introduced grasses. However, well managed stocking rates have kept pasture conditions in good shape. The terrain ranges from rolling to high hills with 'high plains' type areas and 'hill country' type slopes. The creek bottoms are wide with good sandy soils.

This property is within the "100 kilometer" rule for foreign owners in Mexico. Basically, title to land is transferred by deed to a Mexican Corporation. A foreign owner can be the sole owner of a Mexican Corporation. Additionally, Stewart Title International is now offering title insurance in Mexico. This allows foreign owners to have a secure title in the Mexican property they purchase.
