149.92 acres Jim Harry Loop Ranch


Located in north central Texas on Jim Harry Loop Road between Sunset and Forestburg, Texas in Montague County! Approximately 1.5 hours from the heart of the DFW metroplex.


The Jim Harry Loop Ranch is an unbelievable tract of land! It is extremely diverse in terrain and vegetation as well as having over a DOZEN ponds. Most of the south side of the ranch backs up to a very deep creek that runs water most of the year and is lined with towering hardwood trees and steep banks. This creek runs a huge amount of water after a rain and it is a feeder creek for the nearby Denton Creek. Although the center of the creek is the actual property boundary for most of the south side, the owners installed a well-built fence several feet away from the creek to enable cattle grazing without the trouble of cattle getting into the creek bed and prevents dealing with water gaps. The property has been cross-fenced into multiple pastures to enhance the grazing capacity fully rotate graze cattle. The landscape of the ranch is amazing, with lots of elevation changes that all eventually drain toward the creek. Many of the natural draws that are scattered about the ranch have been dammed for ponds. Most of these ponds are nice and blue because the runoff water is filtered from the grass pastures above the draws. Huge trees and large vegetation are all over the property, making it feel much bigger than 149 acres. Post oak, elm, blackjack, and a few scattered cedar are the primary larger trees and the brush and smaller vegetation includes wild plum, bluestem, and other grasses. The area of the property that joins Jim Harry Loop, has a gravel maintained county road, is quite a bit higher than the road. This creates privacy and a buffer from any local traffic on the county road. The 12-13 ponds scattered throughout the ranch are one of its greatest assets. These are perfect for recreation such as fishing and frog and duck hunting as well as for all other wildlife and cattle grazing. Whitetail deer hunting in this part of central Montague County is very good and with the water and cover on this ranch, it is hard to beat! There are prime places for archery setups with all of the tall trees and elevation throughout. This small tract is as good as it gets acre for acre and is ready to be enjoyed by an outdoor recreationalist.


Electricity, 12-13 ponds!, perimeter and cross-fences are good to excellent condition, excellent gravel road access.


Whitetail deer, turkey, wild hogs, dove, waterfowl hunting and fishing in some of the ponds.
