The Brazos River Ranch a great opportunity to own a diverse river property with approximately 1.3 miles of frontage on the Brazos river, heavily wooded pasture, wonderful views, cultivated food plots, and loads of wildlife. The property fronts the south side of the Salt Fork of the Brazos River, and drastically changes in terrain and vegetation from one end to the other. The dense Brazos river bottom area is rolling with primarily sandy loam soils and heavily lined with hardwood trees, plum thickets, chinaberry motts, cottonwood groves, and several other kinds of underbrush. The southern portion of the ranch has much more elevation change with great vantage points, escarpments as well asmuch more rougher terrain with mostly clay like soils. On the southern portion of the ranch it is more common to find mixes of mesquite, cedar, and scattered hackberry trees. Lake Creek traverses the ranch and eventually empties in to the Brazos River near the northeast corner of the tract. This creek holds pools of water nearly all the time and flows during average rainfall years. Its serves as a turkey roost, a game highway, and also a potential source of water for livestock and wildlife. Dense thickets of brush, tall mesquites, lots of big hardwoods, mature hackberries, plum thickets, tall grasses, range brush, coupled with some 58 acres of cultivation(in 4 separate fields) acting as a ready to go food plot. The habitat here is perfect for a variety of wildlife, including Whitetail deer, Rio Grande Turkey, wild hogs, bobcats, coyote, and plenty of ducks on the river. Hog rubs and wallows are easy to find just about anywhere in the pasture, as are buck rubs and scrapes. The pasture is accessed by a number of ATV trails and small roads that wind through it. The river is easy to get to as well, with several access points by pasture road. Highly traveled game trails are found throughout the property and are especially noticeable down near the river. Some of the these trails are so heavily traveled they look similar to cattle trails. The ranch has not been grazed by livestock for over a year and the grasses have flourished. The Dove hunting is outstanding and the ranch is located in a natural flyway for birds. Catfishing and Bowfishing for Gar and Carp are other fun recreational activities found on the Brazos River Ranch.
