Location:

Located in Knox County on FM 267 about 5 miles south of Gilliland, Texas just a few miles northeast of Benjamin, Texas and approximately 25 miles west of Seymour, Texas.

Terrain:

The 267 Hunting Ranch is an off the grid hunting ranch that offers great hunting, beautiful views, unique terrain changes, excellent grasses, and many recreational activities. The ranch is also well watered, with ponds scattered all across the tract as well as several wet weather creeks that meander throughout the rugged terrain. Driving through the ranch you will find heavily treed cedar areas with scattered mesquite, flat plateaus with minimal cover, thickets of mesquite, and several dense hackberry draws. The north side of the ranch is more elevated and provides great views of the valleys and thicket areas below. Not only is the hunting great, but the 267 Hunting Ranch is also a wonderful place to ride ATV’s and/or horseback ride. With the uneven terrain and elevated areas, any outdoorsman will thoroughly enjoy this ranch atmosphere! The grass on the ranch has been rested and would be perfect for a combination cattle and hunting ranch.

Hunting:

Hunting in this area of North Texas is exceptional and it is extremely common to see large whitetail deer of 150+ class on the property. The ranch is comprised of approximately 870 acres which joins two ranches that are 8,000 + acres and are not commercially hunted. The 267 Hunting Ranch owners have strictly managed the ranch for trophy whitetail with a year round feeding program. Over the last four years, this program has paid off with mature trophy quality deer. The owners estimate the buck to doe ratio to be close to one to one. There are also a few mule deer that travel the ranch from time to time. The current quail population on the ranch is unbelievable and quail have not been hunted in several years. It is very common to see several coveys while riding the ranch roads. Dove hunting can be outstanding as well, especially around the pond areas where there are typically native sunflowers and other sources of food coupled with the water. The current owners have killed over 70 wild hogs on the property over the last four years. The ranch is home to ducks, turkey, coyotes, bobcats and even an occasional javelina. This exceptional recreational property offers the avid hunter unlimited access to a wide variety of wildlife.
