Myers River Ranch is a cattle ranchers dream, located just 12 miles south of College Station. The ranch is perfect for a high-end cattle operation, or can be used as a fantastic recreational ranch or investment for future development.

Location: The ranch is located in southern Brazos County, 15 minutes south of College Station. 1.15 hours to Houston. The ranch is accessed off of frontage road to Highway 6.
Habitat: The Myers Ranch is located in the Post Oak Savanna Region. Most of the pastures on the western side of the property are improved while the bottom land near the river remain native pasture. Most of the property has been groomed with a few areas left untouched for wildlife habitat. Jones Creek is on the north side of the property and is excellent habitat for waterfowl. Massive post oak, live oak and pecan trees scatter the pastures.
Wildlife: The white-tailed deer population is abundant across the ranch. With miles of both the Navasota River bottom and Jones Creek, the habitat creates excellent conditions for abundant deer on the ranch. The ranch feeds deer year round and has surprisingly large deer being along the river.
Wood ducks utilize the north portion of the property along Jones Creek and during the winter months the lakes and creeks are filled with migrating waterfowl. There are excellent areas to create artificial wetlands along the river bottom to create even more extensive waterfowl opportunities.
Dove hunting on the ranch is fantastic due to the amount of water scattered throughout the property. The dove travel from the fertile fields of western Brazos County to the ranch in the evenings.
The fishing possibilities are endless. The lakes and ponds are stocked with bass, bream and catfish. Along the river is excellent fishing for large catfish.
