7D Ranch | 2,554± acres | San Saba, Texas | $8,900,000
Nestled in the majestic Texas Hill Country, complete with dramatic elevation changes and views of all of San Saba County, 7D ranch is where hunting, entertaining and ranching meet.
The ranch is situated in San Saba County and is comprised of four sections forming an almost perfect square. It is just over two and a half hours south of Fort Worth, three hours from Dallas, and forty-five-minutes from Llano or Lampasas.
This is a rare opportunity for a first-class recreational hunting ranch with four large fenced pastures which are watered via the 18+ surface water stock tanks, and county water throughout. For the cattle hobbyist there is also an interior trap connected by a fenced lane all the way to the custom-built working pens. Fencing is in good to excellent condition throughout the ranch.
For the avid hunter and outdoor sportsman, 7D is home to trophy deer, turkey, quail, hogs and varmints. The ranch is TPWD Level III MLD and has a game fenced perimeter of 80% of the ranch. The deer have been managed for over 20 years, which makes for some pretty impressive bucks. All of this combined with a beautiful custom lodge makes the 7D a very special opportunity.
7D can be purchased in two combinations, both with separate entrances off county roads. It can be purchased as the entire ranch and lodge, or just the East Division, which is 1,277± acres with minimal improvements.

Situated on CR 117 between San Saba and Goldthwaite and only a few minutes to groceries and shopping, a little over two and half hours from Fort Worth, three hours from Dallas, or an hour and a half from Austin.
Habitat & Topography:
As is typical in the northern Hill Country, the topography consists of plateaus combined with rolling post oak draws and drainages, mesquite-treed pastures and native grasses beneficial to both cattle and wildlife.
The elevation ranges from 1,330 feet to 1,484 feet above sea level.
7D Ranch has 5 plateaus that create drainages and multiple large rock bottom creeks and hardwood draws throughout. The plateaus also provide stunning panoramic views overlooking the land.
The property grasses are bluestem, windmill grass, switchgrass and side oats gramma. There are some areas of improved grasses that can be seen from the Lodge.
7D Ranch is teeming with wildlife; Deer, turkey and quail appear to be in great condition with no active hunting leases in place. Drainages off the plateaus and 18+ surface water tanks keep the game animals well-watered.
MLD Level III managed native deer herd is only hunted by owners and friends. 20 years of managing the herd with the ranch producing bucks in the high 150’s and 160’s B&C and a few 180’s have been taken.
