360 acres - Double Creek River Ranch - more contiguous acreage for sale

Location:

Located in North Central Texas on the Salt Fork of the Brazos River in Western Baylor County just a half mile off of paved FM Road 2070.

Terrain:

The Double Creek River Ranch is a perfect opportunity to own a diverse river property with approximately 5000 feet of frontage on the Brazos River, heavily wooded pasture, wonderful views, nice size cultivated fields, and lots of wildlife. The property fronts the south side of the Salt Fork of the Brazos River, and drastically changes in terrain and vegetation from one side to the other. The dense river bottom area is rolling with some sandy loam soils and heavily lined with hardwood trees, plum thickets, chinaberry motts, cottonwood groves, and several other kinds of underbrush. The southern edge of the ranch has much more elevation change with great vantage points, escarpments as well as much rougher terrain with some clay soils. Both Lake Creek and Edna’s creek wind across the ranch and eventually empty in to the Brazos River. These creeks holds pools of water nearly all the time and flow during average rainfall years. Both creeks, coupled with the Brazos provide turkey roosting areas, game highways, and also sources of water for livestock and wildlife. Dense thickets of brush, tall mesquites, lots of big hardwoods, mature hackberries, plum thickets, tall grasses, range brush, coupled with two great fields of approximately 180 acres of cultivation act as a ready to go food plot. The habitat here is perfect for a variety of wildlife, including whitetail deer, rio grande turkey, wild hogs, bobcats, coyote, and plenty of ducks on the river. Hog rubs and wallows are easy to find just about anywhere in the pasture, as are buck rubs and scrapes. The pasture is accessed by a number of ATV trails and small roads that wind through it. The river is easy to get to as well, with the perimeter fence stretching not far from the river bank. Highly traveled game trails are found throughout the property and are especially noticeable down near the river.  The Dove hunting is outstanding and the ranch is located in a natural flyway for birds. Catfishing and bowfishing are other fun recreational activities found on the Brazos River Ranch.
