Location: Conveniently located to several large towns or metropolitan areas, including 30 minutes North of Abilene, 2.5 hours West of Fort Worth, 2.25 hours East of Midland, 2.25 hours Southeast of Lubbock, and 3.5 hours South of Oklahoma City.

Acreage: 812± acres with almost a 50/50 mix of cultivation and brush. Most of the cultivation is used to grow sunflowers or grasses and weeds beneficial to dove, bobwhite quail, and Rio Grande turkey. Approximately 120± acres on the NW corner are typically planted in cotton. NOTE: The owners would be willing to divide and just sell the 320± acres with the improvements.

Topography: The ranch is fairly level, with some gently rolling areas.

Rainfall/Elevation: According to TSHA online, the annual rainfall for Jones County is 25″. Elevations on the ranch range from 1584′ to 1607′.

Cover: The ranch has a fantastic mix of open cultivated grassland and heavy mesquite cover. The cover gets thicker as the hackberry, western soapberry, and elm trees line the banks of the creek. The combination of open areas and thick pastures make a great draw to hold lots of birds and wildlife. Much of the cultivation has been let go back to native grass and sunflowers. A TPWD program has been utilized to plant approximately 70 acres in a grass mix specifically for the bird population.

Fences: Most of the fencing is five-strand barbed wire on metal and cedar posts. The remainder of the ranch has hotwire (electric fencing) along the perimeter.

Utilities: Electricity is in place and is provided by Big Country Electric Cooperative. Rural water is supplied by Ericksdahl Water Supply. The owners have run water and electric service to several locations on the ranch, including six RV hookups.

Water: Water is plentiful on this ranch. Red Mud Creek meanders throughout the ranch for approximately 2.3 miles. There are seven earthen stock tanks on the ranch. Several of these tanks were built to enhance waterfowl habitat, as well as to draw in dove. Two of the tanks near the headquarters are aerated and have bass and perch in them. Water is supplied to the improvements by Ericksdahl Water Supply. There is also a water well that reportedly makes 5 gpm.

Hunting: Wildlife in the area is plentiful. With both the abundance of water and the mix of pasture and cultivation, the ranch holds lots of game. Native wildlife includes whitetail deer, Rio Grande turkey, bobwhite quail, feral hogs, and several predatory animals or varmints. Dove, Sandhill Crane, and waterfowl hunting is outstanding here. For the past few years, the ranch has been utilized to cater to wing shooters. Several of the fields are in sunflowers to attract large numbers of birds. Other fields will be allowed to grow up in Johnson Grass and used as pheasant hunting fields. Sandhill Cranes will also carpet the grass and cultivated fields. The owners have pens for both quail and pheasant, which they will release for special hunts.

Residence and Improvements: The owners have done a great job of building very nice improvements. This place is set up to entertain! Below is a list of just some of the improvements:
