Well, thank goodness for TBH after making this post I was able to gather a good group of members. Unfortunately, after giving details of the place on here a member of TBH was able to contact me that they lease conjoining property to this one. They pay 1/4 of what my group would be paying. Also to find out the place is completely shot up and does not have nearly the amount of game that I am being told. So unfortunately me and the other members will not be pursuing this property any longer.
Have that said my search continues, along with already having a group of 5 other hunters that are also looking.

The old we pay 1/4 the price next door trick works every time





Better to find out now than after spending your money. Good luck on your search OP. I’m not interested in a shot out place for $15K either.

That is no lie. Apparently 3 siblings own the property all divided. The sister sold her piece to one of her brothers (Albert Wells). Albert owns now 2 of the divided properties which one is the place I have listed here. The other brother (Sammy Wells) owns the other piece 300 acres a fellow TBH member on here leases it. Told me he barely sees anything, heís had people steal his SD cards from his camera, locks cut off his blinds etc. they pay $3,400 total meanwhile while I am going through a lease broker at the conjoined property to his and they are asking $15,000 total. So anybody looking for a lease steer clear of the Wells Ranch and a lease broker by the name of Ryan Haecker.

I can confirm this to be true....how weird to see a post for a lease and learn its the neighboring property you've attempted to hunt with dismal activity of wildlife presence....I don't know where those axis in photos are hiding but they certainly haven't ever been under our feeders...I believe our land owner is a stand up fella...as for whoever this other outfitter is and whats up with that situation...clueless...

Sounded too high to me and was gonna be too many people to just make it even affordable but I just kept my mouth closed. Lol! Definitely have to be careful on lease searches. Always someone trying to get to you.

Was the broker willing to show the property before closing the deal?

You saved yourself some heartache in this area at that price. A relative of mine owns a couple hundred acres in that exact area and he hasn't had any trail cam pics and has seen only 2 axis does in 3 years. The several years prior he had a nice herd that he could pull at least one 30"+ axis buck every year. They're being run over by pigs now and he shoots minimum 2 each trip just from his front porch. There's still a few whitetails in the area but nothing to write home about.

Weird, I always go to GSP in Concan every summer since I was 5. Iím familiar with the Concan, Leakey, Campwood area. Have always had a good number of deer everywhere. I wonder what has changed.

Hunted some Briscoe land outside of Concan a few years ago, rarely, if ever, saw a deer. Couple years later we heard anthrax wiped them out. Not sure if it was true, or if itís common in that area, but Iíve got no better explanation.

I hunted Briscoe land about 12 miles south of garner myself a few years back.....we didn't see a deer all season and we were quick to leave....I had always wondered if a plague had swept thru at some point....i guess this may help answer some of my suspiciouns about where the deer all were....

Yikes, Iím just trying to get back to hunting the hill country. Iíve had leases in Llano, Sonora, Junction and Roosevelt. I recon I should do some research on areas that get effected by anthrax.
