Location: Located on County Road 410, about 7.5 miles West of Aspermont, 65 miles Northwest of Abilene or 185 miles Northwest of Ft. Worth.
Acreage: 925.86+/- acres. The ranch is extremely diverse, consisting of rolling cultivation, mesquite flats, and plenty of draws and hills. Cover includes Mesquite, Hackberry, Chinaberry, a few Cedars, and even some Cottonwoods in several draws. There is also an abundance of great browse plants including Little Leaf and Skunkfoot Sumac, Lotebush, Algerita, and Ephedra to name a few.
Improvements: The owner remodeled the original rock house to create a very nice two room cabin complete with kitchen/living area, bedroom, and a full bath. The remodel was done in a rustic manner to maintain the feel of an original rock ranch house. The time and effort put into this cabin make you feel like you have stepped back in time, while not leaving out the comforts of home. The existing cistern was also cleaned out and re-lined. Water is captured from gutters on the cabin and piped to this cistern, making it completely functional. Water is supplied to the home from a water well that can supply 12 gpm. Fences are in excellent condition, with much of them being replaced recently. The owner has also put in an extensive road system to allow easy access to all parts of the ranch.
Topography: This ranch has about 180 acres of cultivated land the owner has let go back to native grass, and balance in Mesquite pasture, with lots of elevation changes. The ranch is rolling, with several large draws running throughout. There are both areas of very thick cover and scattered trees. This makes it open enough to hunt, yet thick enough to really hold the wildlife.
Utilities: Electricity is in place at the cabin, as well as several areas on the ranch.
Water: Underground water here is good and supplies three water wells (one windmill, one on solar pump and one on electric pump). There are also two stock tanks, one of which is holding water at the time of this writing. One windmill and the solar pump overflow into natural wildlife watering areas. There are also several springs in the draws.
Hunting: This area offers excellent hunting of Whitetail Deer, Rio Grande Turkey, Bobwhite Quail, Mourning and White-wing Dove and Feral Hogs. Owners report that each quail hunt averaged from 30-35 coveys per outing in 2015-2016 season and 40-45 in 2016-2017 season. The quail hunts included 1,100 acres owned directly across county road to the North(which is also available for purchase). Flocks of turkeys are seen with frequency numbering 50-75. The owner has taken great care to enhance the wildlife habitat throughout the years.
Minerals: The owner had a Mineral Opinion done on the property to verify his interests and owns a large portion of minerals across the ranch. These minerals can convey with and acceptable offer.
