texas ranches for sale


280 acres     Markley Ranch


Located on HWY 16, Just South of Markley, Texas.  Also, 19 miles Northwest of Jacksboro near the Jack and Young County line and just north of Jermyn, Texas. Property is conveniently located 5 miles north of HWY 114 and Jermyn, Texas approximately 80 miles to Fort Worth.


Rolling terrain with nice views and extremely heavy brush on some of the tract with some heavy oak cover in areas of the property. Whitetail deer, turkey, and wild hogs are frequently found in these heavy mesquite areas. There are a couple nice hill top areas on the tract that allow nice views of the timbered areas below as well as potential home or cabin sites. There is a wet weather creek that crosses that property and several other good pond sites as well. Property has HWY 16 paved road frontage on the Northwest side and graveled Stewart Ranch Road frontage on the South side. The property would also be attractive for a small cattle operation with its good grasses, surface water, easy access, and excellent fencing.


Three ponds; fences are in good to excellent condition; electricity is available in several areas of the ranch; paved access on Hwy 16.


This ranch has been meticulously managed for wildlife and is currently classified in the MLD III category, which allows hunting of up to 120+/- days per year!! With the ranch having areas that have been converted to improved pastures and having been selectively cleared, future food plot areas found in several spots, and surface water scattered across the ranch, this is a prime setup for the avid hunter that’s looking to continue and enjoy a well-managed hunting ranch. The ranch is located in the transition area from Oak to Mesquite country, and being balanced with both, the nice views of the oak timber, and nutrition of the mesquite beans and hackberry, it is hard to find a better area in North Texas for this type of wildlife growth.


The ranch has been control grazed for many years and is in great shape for cattle grazing. Some areas of the ranch have been selectively cleared to maximize the grass growth and raise the stocking rate of the ranch.


Whitetail deer, turkey, quail, dove, duck, wild hogs.
