290 Frels Rd, Yoakum TX 77995
Located in Concrete Texas, DeWitt County between Gonzales and Cuero and approximately 1 mile off HWY 183. This gorgeous property is 99 miles to San Antonio International Airport 71 miles to Austin- Bergstrom International Airport

This diverse rolling 200 acres is about 85% covered in trees with some open pasture and roadways being the balance. The fertile river bottom portion of the property filled with massive native Pecan trees, Bald Cypress, Sycamores, American Elms, and Black Willow along with a copious layer of woody shrubs and grasses. The 1000+ft of river frontage is unique in that it sits on a bend in the river which provides water level access to the Guadalupe River as opposed to the steep cliffs usually found on either side. There is also a large sand bar just in front of the landing providing a “sometimes island” to utilize for recreation. This bend in the Guadalupe River also forms a rather large fishing hole for catfish and other fish. This riverfront and drainage area provides a wonderful sanctuary for the wildlife found in South/Central Texas including Whitetail Deer, Bobcats, Feral Hogs, Eastern Turkey, Coyotes, Squirrels, raccoons and many other varmints. The upper pasture is mostly Mesquite, Hackberry, Huisache, and Live Oaks with coastal Bermuda mixed intermittently. Furthermore, it is bordered to the East by McCoy Creek, another well traveled route for wildlife. This portion is home for Whitetail Deer as well as Rio Grande Turkey and occasionally feral hogs. This is a top-notch hunting property with year-round hunting opportunities

The owner’s family and friends have hunted deer on the property and report good numbers and quality bucks for the area. Trees observed on the property include Live Oak, Post Oak, Pecan, American Elm, Cedar Elm, Hackberry, Sycamore, Osage Orange, Black Willow, Ash, Sweet Gum, Mesquite, and Huisache. The forb and grass layer is composed of Granjeno, Lime Prickly Ash, Winged Elm, Ragweed, Frostweed, Inland Sea Oats, Wooly Croton, Green Briar, Mustang Grape, Switchgrass, Hooded Windmill Grass, Bristlegrass, Coastal Bermuda, and KR Bluestem.

A portion of the property does lie within the 100-year floodplain.


The new owner will be “ranch ready” with several items in good condition that convey with this gorgeous property. Inside a fenced in yard, you will find a 36’x52’ pavilion with concrete slab in place complete with electricity, RV hookups, water, septic, and firepit. Located on a high point, this feature is great place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning while watching the wildlife or enjoy the fellowship of friends and family while you sit by the fire at night. This pavilion provides protection for the 2015 Grand Design Solitude RV which will convey. In addition, a two-seat 2012 John Deere Gator 825i and a 2016 John Deere 5075E tractor with 250 hours including a front end bucket, shredder and grapple attachment will also stay. The several hunting stands and feeders will also be in place and ready to go. The property is perimeter and cross fenced with the fencing being in good condition. Electricity is provided by GVEC with a meter onsite. Water is supplied by a well which serves both the pavilion and the cattle troughs.
