Talk about North Texas "Hill" Country! This 64.31 +/- acre ranch has big of elevation change, tall oak trees and year around recreation. It's located halfway between Bowie and Jacksboro in Clay County, TX, about five miles south of the Vashti community. Only a half mile north of the Jack County line, it is also just down the road from the Montague & Wise County lines, accessible from downtown Fort Worth in only one hour.
The ranch has frontage on the county maintained, gravel based Dewebber Rd., for all weather access. Hwy 59 that runs between Bowie and Jacksboro is four miles away. You enter the ranch through a newly constructed pipe ranch entrance and travel 456 ft down a 35 ft wide deeded private lane, where the ranch opens up to the wooded pasture. A 40 ft x 100 ft metal barn with dirt floor is located at the front end of the pasture; this barn has two 10 ft (wide) x 14.5 ft (tall) entry doors and would be perfect for parking a camping trailer, ranch equipment, etc. Electricity and a 300 ft water well are in place at the barn too, in good working condition. There are nice spots in the woods just off of this area that would make great spots to build a cabin or house.
Newly dozed interior roads take you down multiple paths through the woods. The ranch has over 70 ft of elevation change across it and two large hills, which make for a fun vehicle or horseback ride. The land has dense oak trees, mostly post but some live oak, across the hills and the bulk of the pasture, with thick mesquites on the south end that create the perfect barrier between this ranch and the neighbor. The soils are a sandy mix and grow native forbs and grasses well. Lots of rock boulders and outcroppings dot the landscape, some bigger than a pickup truck, which make for great hiking and exploring.
The neighbors have very little to no hunting activity going on. The neighbor on the west and north border is 1,000 acres large; the neighbor on the east is 60 acres, to the south is a 30 acre homestead and another tract on the west side is 25 acres. A large 2,500 acre ranch is around those neighbors, within 0.25 miles of the property too. This property will have excellent hunting for whitetail deer, turkey and feral hog. Two feeder locations are in place; the one in the middle of the deepest valley hasa tree stand and spin feeder, and the one in the northwest corner on the highest point of the land has a wooden box blind and feeder pen, perfect for rifle shots.
Two seasonal creeks feed two ponds, one of which is stocked with bass. The pond dam and perimeter were recently cleaned up of trees and brush. The creek that feeds it has a large tail, and fish can be seen going up stream as well.
Overall, this is one of the nicest ranch properties we've seen in this area. It has a good perimeter fence to mark the border. The land is agriculture exempt for property taxes, which are low and less than $300 per year. It is in Bowie ISD. This is one you will be sure to enjoy for years to come.
LIST PRICE: $5,500/acre | $353,705 total
