1,060 acres - Whisky Creek Ranch---Additional Acreage Available

Location:

Whisky Creek Ranch is located in North Central Texas approximately 150 miles northwest of Fort Worth,  20-25 minutes west of Wichita Falls, and southeast of  Electra, Texas. The ranch has all-weather access from a variety of points including FM 367, Fowlkes Road, and Lazy J Road.

Terrain:

The Whisky Creek Ranch is an opportunity to own a great North Texas hunting and cattle ranch operation. The ranch is fairly diverse, with several acres of flat mesquite and grass country as well as more dramatic rolling areas that have a little rougher terrain. The gentle slopes across most of the ranch allow for good pond and lake areas.  Large areas of runoff water are filtered from native prairie grasses keeping silting to a minimum.  Although there are several smaller tributary creeks across the ranch, the best defined is Whisky Creek. Whisky Creek is a wildlife highway and provides water for livestock in addition to several ponds scattered across the property. These 1,060 acres, as well as the surrounding acreage, has been meticulously managed for many years and never over-grazed. Wildlife has always been a priority in management and the cattle grazing has been used as a management tool in keeping prime game habitat and populations. Although the entire ranch offers outstanding North Texas hunting of all types, much of the acreage for years was managed for prime quail habitat with spraying and brush work being utilized. These large areas are also home to very strong grass pastures and the same efforts resulted in much higher livestock grazing ratios. Throughout the creek bottoms and especially the rougher areas of the ranch, most of the brush has been left alone and provides great cover for Whitetail deer and turkey. This area is known for producing 130-170 inch Whitetail deer with correct management and feeding programs. With current brush management and a rotational grazing program, the Whisky Creek Ranch is running 1/15 animal unit pairs or approximately 70 cow/calf pairs. This number could be raised or lowered according to management of the wildlife, livestock feeding programs, and rainfall. The Electra and Iowa Park, Texas historic rainfall is approximately 27-29 inches annually.

Improvements:

Electricity, paved access from FM 367 and gravel road access from Fowlkes and Lazy J Roads, excellent perimeter and cross-fences with steel pipe bracing and steel gates. Two larger ponds and several small ponds are scattered all across the ranch. Good interior road system.

Wildlife:

Whitetail deer, Bobwhite quail, turkey, dove, waterfowl, and wild hogs

Income:
