Size:

2,479 acres – HWY 25-Buffalo Creek Ranch

Location:

Hwy 25-Buffalo Creek Ranch is located in North Central Texas approximately 140 miles northwest of Fort Worth, 20 minutes west of Wichita Falls. The ranch has access from a variety of points including US Highway 25, Lazy J Road, and Turkey Creek Road.

Terrain:

The Hwy 25-Buffalo Creek Ranch is an opportunity to own a combination hunting and cattle ranch operation in Texas that was once a part of the historic Burnett Ranch Empire. The ranch is fairly diverse, with many acres of flat mesquite and rolling grass country as well as a few acres of rougher terrain. The gentle slopes across most of the ranch allow for good pond and lake areas, with large areas of runoff water that in many areas is filtered well from native prairie grasses keeping silting to a minimum. Turkey Creek, a main creek channel is a wildlife highway and also provides water for livestock in addition to the many ponds scattered across the land. The ranch has been 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 same large areas are also home to 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 immediate 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 Hwy 25-Buffalo Creek Ranch is running 1/18 animal units pair. 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 highway 25, excellent perimeter and cross-fences with steel pipe bracing and steel gates. Several large ponds are scattered across the ranch with many being recently expanded and cleaned out.  

Wildlife:

Whitetail deer, bobwhite quail, turkey, dove, waterfowl, and wild hogs.

Income:

The ranch is currently leased for hunting and cattle grazing. Although, a buyer is not obligated to continue these leases, a new owner could continue one or both of these lease options, and Buffalo Creek Ranch would offer a good return on an investment opportunity.

Price:

$865 per acre
