434 acres - Lodge Creek Ranch

Location:

Located in southern Clay County near the Jack County line on graveled Copeland and Gasoline Alley county roads and approximately 1.4 hour drive from Fort Worth, Texas or 2 hours from Dallas, Texas.

Terrain:

The Lodge Creek Ranch is a phenomenal hunting and recreational property located in “large ranch country”, is extremely diverse, and has lots to offer. The location of the ranch is very important because it is in the transition area from mesquite to post oaks and offers flat to more elevation and has the beauty of the hardwood trees as well as the cover and growing qualities from mesquite country. The terrain is primarily rolling, but in some areas there are more dramatic elevation changes with rock outcroppings and heavy hardwood timber. The north and west sides of the ranch are mostly comprised of heavy bull mesquite thickets which provide excellent cover and canopy with a few clearings throughout. During the cold days of the year when food plots are planted in winter wheat, it is possible to view over 100 deer on the ranch. Whitetail deer in this area are known to range in the 130-180 range! The eastern and southern sides of the ranch are mostly covered in heavy Post Oaks and scattered Hackberry trees. These parts of the ranch are rolling and full of color from the beautiful trees. The large oaks are perfect for bow hunting setups and also for natural turkey roosts. Both food plots of the ranch are huge deer magnets and come alive near sunrise and sunset!  Lodge Creek, a winding, rock-lined wet weather creek traverses the southeast portion of the ranch and only runs after rainfall for a few days. Several senderos along the creek were previously cut to provide shooting lanes in the dense areas and for viewing wildlife. There are also several pools of water that provide an additional water source for wildlife and cattle mostly year-round. One of the greatest attributes of the Lodge Creek Ranch besides the great hunting is the beautiful ponds and the fishing!
Each of the three ponds that are stocked with fish are totally different in looks and surroundings and has their own appeal. Three of the ponds on the ranch are rock-lined with huge rocks that form parts of the dam. The rock sides of the ponds provide a natural environment as well as excellent fish structure. Three of the large ponds are also supplemented by water wells year-round, so they always keep a good level and have fresh water. During most of the year, the pond water is a beautiful dark blue color, ideal for raising healthy, large fish.
