640 acres - Plum Creek Ranch

Location:

Located in northwest Archer County near Lake Kickapoo and just southeast of the small community of Dundee, TX. Plum Creek Ranch is accessed by graveled Stone Road just north of FM 368 and north of Lake Kickapoo. 

Terrain:

The Plum Creek Ranch is an exceptional all around turn-key recreational combination ranch located only 2 hours from the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex. The land is comprised of very diverse terrain from flat cultivated fields to dense mesquite flats that quickly fall off into deep canyons lined with various hardwoods. There are wonderful views from the top of the cliffs that overlook the numerous canyons that wind through the ranch. Whitetail deer hunting in this area is exceptionally good, with large numbers and quality horns. In colder weather on the wheat fields it is common to see between 50-100 deer grazing the plots. Plum Creek Ranch is surrounded by large managing neighbors who also ensure quality game is raised to maturity. Dove hunting is outstanding on the edges of the cultivated fields and around the ponds. Native pastures are ideal for running cattle and the cultivated fields are perfect for wheat grazing and then harvest. There are four ponds scattered throughout the tract as well as water in Plum Creek. Live springs trickle year round on the ranch providing another fresh water source for wildlife and vegetation. The ranch has very diverse vegetation and this feature is an asset to the wildlife numbers and habitat on Plum Creek Ranch. Some of the mesquite thickets near the cultivated field areas are extremely dense making it almost impossible to walk through while other areas are more open with thick grasses and scrub brush. The open areas are more conducive to quail habitat. Plum Creek is very unique with interesting natural rock features and lots of large hardwood trees lining the creek bottom area. This area of the ranch does not look at all typical for northwest Texas ranch land. Another attractive attribute of Plum Creek Ranch is the close proximity to the direct flight path of thousands of Sand Hill cranes that roost on Lake Kickapoo. The lake offers good fishing, boating, and other recreational activities.  Enjoy beautiful countryside views of the ranch and Lake Kickapoo from the headquarters located in the elevated area near the center of the property and very private.
