The Barr Ranch is an outstanding recreation and hunting ranch in King County, Texas, located about halfway between Lubbock and Wichita Falls, about an hour north of Abilene, Texas. The 1,771 acres lies along the Eastern edge of the historic 6666 Ranch and is accessed via all-weather County Road 379 just off of Highway 222. The topography on the ranch features rough, broken, very scenic canyons, valleys, and elevated ridges that range to 1,800 feet on the west end that slope to more gently rolling terrain and mesquite flats near the properties entrance. The ranch also incorporates multiple water sources throughout including; King/Cattle County rural waterline, a livestock waterier, 3 ponds, and several wet weather areas along Gyp creek. Additionally, several areas have been cleared to create a native browse along the flats and provide excellent bobwhite quail habitat. The ranch also has implemented 3 food plots for supplemental crops for wildlife such whitetail deer, turkey, dove, and wild hogs. Barr Ranch has outstanding whitetail genetics, with a 26-point buck taken off the property that scored a whopping 210! Multiple premium feeder/blind setups have been set up in strategic locations across the ranch. Artificial roosting sights and special turkey feeding stations have been set up to benefit the Rio Grande turkey population on the Barr Ranch. Protein-feeding stations feature larger livestock proof fencing to help wildlife feel more comfortable and create less crowding. A galvanized elevated feed storage bin near the headquarters keeps wildlife feed supplies within easy reach to re-stock feeders. The ranch headquarters is truly a place that one can come in and relax at the end of long day in the field. The headquarters includes a main house with covered parking, bunk house, shop, and shooting range. The main house is a 1,800 sq ft three bedroom/two bath rock home. It features an open concept living room/kitchen/dining room that has vaulted wood ceilings with wooden beams and stained concrete floors throughout. The master bedroom features a master bath with twin vanities and expansive walk-in closet. A large sun-room/exercise room is located just off the master bedroom. A screened in back porch and laundry lead into the kitchen and are both helpful in keeping those ranch messes outside of the main house. There is a large front porch that runs the length of the house and a built-in fire pit in the front yard to enjoy the sunset around a crackling fire or the sunrise with a warm cup of coffee and the call of a bobwhite across the valley. For larger groups, a manufactured log cabin bunkhouse sits directly behind the main house. It features one main room with multiple beds, one full bath and one half bath. The ranch also is equipped with a 30x50 insulated metal shop with a concrete floor. The shop has a small one-bedroom/one bath apartment inside of it. The shop also has a 20x30 ft overhang off the west end of the barn, complete with cleaning station. Behind the bunkhouse a metal carport and insulated water storage building both provide peace of mind during harsh North Texas weather. Just west of the ranch headquarters, is a multiple range shooting area with covered shooting benches. A covered set of dog kennels on concrete slab is just east of the main house and ready for your favorite pointing dog when it’s time to chase those big coveys of quail. Access across the ranch is quick and easy with the well-constructed ranch roads; the property also has its own gravel pit to keep these roads in tip/top shape. At a price point that is seldom seen in today’s market, the Barr Ranch is an outstanding option to consider if you’re searching for a recreational/hunting ranch in West Texas that has this amount of stunning views & topography of the rolling plains.
