The H. Yturria Ranches are steeped deep in South Texas History. Francisco Yturria was the patriarch of the Yturria Family who was a successful businessman in both South Texas and Mexico. Along with other prominent business people from the mid-1800 era, such as Richard King and Mifflin Kennedy, Yturria amassed tremendous land-holding in the Rio Grande Valley Region of South Texas. Today, descendants of Francisco Yturria continue to operate 3 divisions of H. Yturria Ranches.
Punta del Monte is the original headquarter portion of the Yturria Ranches, located about 8 miles north of Raymondville. This 12,000 acre wildlife hunting paradise is also operated as a cattle ranch, but much of the emphasis over the last decade has been places on its wildlife and deer hunting programs. A variety of exotics are found here, including a large population of popular nilgai antelope. Native game hunts for white-tailed deer and spring turkeys are also available here. A unique camp area features 6 cabins (double occupancy with private bath), along with a separate building that has kitchen, large dining room, and screened-in back porch, provide comfortable accommodations for hunters and guests. A resident cook takes care of all meals.
La Chata Division is located 3 miles north of Raymondville and is comprised of approximately 6,000 acres. Both exotic and native game hunts are found here. The camp area features 3 private cabins (double occupancy with private bath), a bunkroom, and a separate building with kitchen and dining area. A nice fire-ring provides a great spot for evening relaxation. A resident cook takes care of all dining needs.
La Joya Division is located about 15 miles northwest of McAllen. This 6,000 acre high fenced property is operated as a working cattle ranch and a commercial hunting operation with native game and exotics. The camp area is a comfortable set-up, with small groups of hunters, or singles, staying in a 2 bedroom, 1 bath cabin. A separate dining facility is located across the yard where there is a kitchen and large dining/lounging area. There is also a bunkhouse for guides and overflow. A resident cook provides all meals.
