Terrain:

The King County Game Ranch has so many exceptional qualities to offer including wonderful views, endless canyons, massive elevation changes, tons of wildlife, a beautiful lake, nice improvements, and many types of hunting and recreational opportunities. The ranch is comprised of various terrain from dense mesquite flats, rolling hills, mesa hilltops, countless large, rugged canyons lined with cedar and shin oak ridges. These hills are large sloped areas providing large amounts off runoff water to the creek channels and valleys below, which are ideal for lake sites or pond areas. One of the main focal points of the ranch is the beautiful 300 acre lake that is fed by runoff from several of these canyons. Pen Branch Creek and Croton Creek on the west side border feeds into the lake. This is not only an outstanding fishing lake, but a huge draw for the wildlife on the ranch. Waterfowl are abundant on the main lake and all of the ponds on the ranch, especially in the winter months. The lake will often have hundreds or thousands of ducks and geese depending on the season and the current flyway situation. The lake is currently stocked with Florida largemouth bass, crappie, and perch. This area of North Texas is known for trophy whitetail deer, bobwhite quail, and turkey. King County Game Ranch’s size, water, and feeding program, including approximately 230 quail feeders, 6 food plots consisting of about 150 acres, and multiple blind and feeder setups, make the King County Game Ranch a prime area for wildlife to thrive. In addition to the low fence and free choice acreage of the ranch, the King County Game Ranch also has a large high-fenced area of approximately 3,800 acres. This gives the owner the ability to have the best of both worlds of hunting and allows raising and hunting of exotic animals in addition to the natural wildlife. The King County Game area had a large pasture fire in 2008 which burned much of the ranch. The fire was beneficial to the ranch in that it burned off a lot of the thick brush and cedars allowing more grass seeds and new growth to flourish providing better habitat and food sources to support the varied wildlife.
