texas ranches for sale

Size:

370 acres ~ Scott Lake Waterfowl Slough

Location:

Scott Lake is located in Southern Knox County on the Haskell and Knox County Line just Southeast of Munday, Texas

Terrain:

Absolutely phenomenal waterfowl hunting land in the Wetland Reserve Program (WRP). With approximately 3000 acres of drainage area, the lake's level will vary with rainfall, when full it is about 250 surface acres (3.5 feet deep at the most) and in the hot summer months, it actually shrinks to just a mud hole in the summer and allows vegetation such as smartweed and millet to grow. The lake is fed by runoff from surrounding fields, as well as the county road ditches. Vegetation throughout the Scott Lake includes tall Switchgrass, Side oats Grama, Plain Bristle grass, Kleingrass, B. Dahl and Bluestem. This ranch is located in an area of much surface water, lots of grain crops, and in a huge flyway zone, the Central Flyway. In the winter months, waterfowl by the thousands are roosting on the lake. Lesser Canadian Geese are the predominant waterfowl from November through February, but ducks including teal, pintails, widgeons, mallards, gadwalls are also common to Scott Lake. There are many vantage points around and out in Scott Lake that allow multiple hunters and different hunting setups for morning, evening, wind direction, etc. Scott lake also has no hunting pressure from the neighboring properties.
