This 3841 +/- acre ranch has some of the best quail hunting around not to mention the abundance of deer, dove, and turkey. The ranch is fenced into 6 pastures with traps for gathering cattle. A nice set of pipe working pens with loading chute helps make working the cattle easy and convenient. Grasses on the ranch are very strong helping make this ranch ideal for income production with cattle and the perfect habitat for the quail. The terrain is rolling with several high points of elevation offering some beautiful views across the countryside. Cover is ideal for the wildlife with mesquite, cedar, hackberry, elms, cactus, and native brush including algerita and mormon’s tea for browse. Grape Creek runs through the ranch and provides pools of water for wildlife and livestock. There are 14 surface tanks on the ranch with 3 of them having access from Lake Ivy through a flow line that can be turned on and keep the tanks full.
Hunting is awesome on the ranch and the current owners have had level 3 deer management for the last 16 years. Quail hunters will be very pleased with the abundance of quail. There are 12 feeders, 2 protein feeders, 4 blinds, and 9 tripods that will convey with the sale. Currently there is no cultivation on the ranch but there are several areas that would be ideal for food plots. Near the home there are some very nice dog kennels to keep hunting dogs.
The ranch home has been updated and is ideal for weekends or extended hunting excersions. The floors are hardwood and the ceilings have been updated with wood throughout the home. A fireplace in the living area offers warmth and coziness in the winter months. The home does have CH/A in addition to the fireplace. Four bedrooms and 2 bathrooms give plenty of space for larger groups. A concrete patio out back is great for sitting outside around a fire and enjoying the outdoors.
