General Description: Dysinger South Bend Ranch is located in the eastern portion of Throckmorton County on Carmack road. Mature mesquite trees with scattered live oak trees surround two central stock tanks on this beautiful and undisturbed hunting property. South Bend ranch is 100% native pastureland with excellent native grasses and is located very close to the Young county line. It is in big ranch country and feels like you are away from everything.
Directions: From Graham, Texas travel west on Hwy 380. Travel approximately 23 miles west, passing through Newcastle to FM 578. Turn left (South) on FM 578 and travel 3.9 miles to Carmack Road.

Terrain: Rolling hills with nice distant views. One of the higher elevations on the property has a healthy grove of live oaks and would be a nice home site. There are some rocky hillsides, but soils are mostly good with the possibility of cultivating food plots for wildlife.
Habitat: Very thick cover consist primarily of mesquite trees and scattered live oaks, chinaberry trees, hackberries, and lotebush. Native grasses include Texas winter grass, side oats grama, curly mesquite, and a variety of other grasses common to the area.
