approximately 105 miles south of Dallas and 80 miles south of Ft. Worth.

approximately 1 mile to FM 1744 on right. Proceed 7+/- miles West on FM 1744 to gated ranch

DESCRIPTION: Off the beaten path and hidden back in the highly desireable northwest part of

Hamilton County. Beaver Creek Ranch is a great recreational ranch providing sanctuary for an

abundance of wildlife. Bordered on three sides by larger ranches, the ranch offers outstanding

wildlife habitat, good elevation change, and seclusion. Perfect for seasonal hunting and

recreation, weekend getaways, and/or permanent country living. The ranch is not encumbered

with multiple improvements and offers numerous potential building sites for your hunting cabin

retreat or dream ranch home. (Also see our 240+/- acre Running H Ranch listing for additional

adjoining acreage with a house.)

TERRAIN: There is approximately 90' of scenic rolling elevation change through the ranch with

an outstanding mix of heavy to moderate cover, native pasture, and cultivated land. The ranch

has good hardwoods throughout and multiple large oak motts. Hardwoods include live oak, bur

oak, post oak, spanish oak, pecan, elm, and hackberry, along with a wide variety of brush species

such as, cedar, mesquite, and sumac.

WILDLIFE & HUNTING: This portion of Hamilton County is known for producing outstanding

whitetail and Beaver Creek Ranch doesn't disappoint. Lightly hunted by family and friends in

past years. The ranch has been well managed and great care taken to enhance hunting. Three oat

fields (25+/- acres, 15+/- acres, and 6+/- acres) along with an abundance of browse, forbs, and

good cover, consistently draw in and hold trophy bucks. Quality mature bucks are regularly seen

along with an abundance of turkey, dove, hog, and varmint. For the bow hunter, there are

numerous areas waiting to be scouted and ready for your tree stand. There are also multiple

areas that would be perfect for establishing sunflower to provide exellent dove hunting.

WATER: The ranch features two stock tanks, one of which is stocked with bass and catfish. It

has a wonderful tree lined draw that feeds in from the north and provides good water for wildlife,

livestock, and recreation. There are numerous wet weather branch tributaries of Honey Creek

meandering through the ranch and potentially multiple small lake locations if a larger body of

surface water was desired. There is believed to possibly be two old water wells on the ranch. One

is at an existing windmill (needing work) and the other at an old homesite (yet to be found).

Underground water in the area is very good.

FENCING AND ROADS: The majority of the perimeter fencing is in good condition, with portions

of older fencing that are in fair condition. A good system of pasture roads and trails provide

scenic travel through the ranch.

OLD HOMESITE AND SHED: The remains of an old farmhouse still stand beneath large majestic

live oaks, providing historic charm and character to the ranch. There is also a small shed near the

farmhouse that is in good condition.

MINERALS: Minerals are negotiable.

ELECTRICITY: United Cooperative Services provides electrical service to the ranch.

SCHOOL DISTRICT: Hico Independent School District

TAXES: Property is ag-exempt and annual property taxes were $326.13 for 2013.
