4,500 Acres Bordering the Red River
- State/Zip:Texas / 79239
This 4,500-acre native grassland ranch, situated in the southeastern Texas Panhandle, has a river-bed buffer from neighboring properties on its north and south boundaries, and a high fence along its western boundary. The secluded location of this property makes it one of the most suitable ranches of its size for managed hunting anywhere in the Texas Panhandle.
Bounded by the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River (locally known as the Big Red) on its north side, and the Little Red River on its south side, the ranch has fairly constant subsurface water table levels regardless of rainfall fluctuations. Grass availability for livestock and wildlife habitat is therefore consistent and not affected by variations in weather conditions to the extent of most other Panhandle properties.
Native grasses consist primarily of sand dropseed, alkali sacaton, & various grama grasses. They provide abundant livestock grazing and wildlife habitat. Approximately 116 acres, previously in the government CRP program, is currently classified by FSA as cropland and could be planted in specific wildlife attraction crops. Wildlife includes quail, turkey, dove, and deer (mule deer & whitetail). Historically, the ranch has consistently supported approximately 150 cow/calf units annually, with peaks reaching 200 units.
The ranch is fully developed for livestock production with good permanent fencing, water facilities supported by the rural water supply co-op, working corrals & handling facilities, and roadways throughout.
