Flying H Ranch
General Description: 400+/- acres located due east of Breckenridge, Texas off Highway 180 on County Road 102. As you enter the ranch there is a hunter's cabin surrounded by large post oak trees, a large metal barn and three (3) nice size earthen tanks. Mature oak, elm, hackberry, cedar and bull mesquite trees make up the majority of thick cover throughout the property. The Flying H Ranch is 100% native pastureland with an easy rolling topography and six (6) total earthen water tanks. There is some internal cross fencing separating this ranch into several pastures and ideal for cattle rotation. This is a very secluded property with a relatively close proximity to Breckenridge.
Directions: From Breckenridge, Texas travel east on Hwy 180 approximately six miles. On the south side of Hwy 180 is a road side park at the intersection of Hwy 180 and CR 102. Take CR 102 south for six miles until the road ends at CR 142. The ranch gate is located to the right, on CR 142, about 100 yards down on the south side of CR 142. Flying H Ranch is located 1.5 hours west of Ft. Worth and approximately two hours from Dallas, Texas.
Improvements: In the north pasture of the ranch, by the entrance, is a nice smaller 20ft x 30ft hunter's cabin. The cabin contains 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom with a kitchen/living room combination area. Across from the cabin is a large 40ft x 45ft metal barn with open stalls on the south side. This barn is perfect for holding large equipment, ATVs and supplies for the ranch.
Interior Access: There is good access around this ranch. The main ranch road runs north/ south through the central part of the ranch. This road gives the owner easy access from the north to the south entrance gate. Subsequent roads separate out from the main road giving one access to most parts of the ranch. The south entrance gate has access off of CR 142. The interior roads are adequate to get around the property but an ATV would be recommended to view the entire ranch.
Terrain: The Flying H Ranch features thick cover and a nice sloping topography. The terrain is level to rolling with gradual elevation changes from the north to south sides of the property. There are large rock outcrops exposed throughout the ranch adding nice topographical features in many areas.
Habitat: The ranch has thick areas of cover consisting primarily of post oak, live oak, elm, cedar and mature mesquite trees. There is some prickly pear cactus, a few scattered hackberries, lotebush, bumelia, elbowbush and other browse typically found in this area. This property is conducive for hunting, fishing and running a few cattle.
Stock Water: There are six (6) nice-sized stock tanks on the property located throughout. The largest tank is located at the hunter's camp site. It is approximately two (2) acre in size and surrounded by large flowing cattail reeds. This tank is ideal for duck hunting. Next to this largest tank are two (2) smaller one (1) acre earthen tanks. All tanks are fed by small drainages running from the north to the south and all of the tanks catch water very well. The three tanks by the cabin can be subsequently filled during times of drought by an oil company underground water line access point. All combined, these tanks are great places for hunting fowl and fishing. They are also very sufficient for watering cattle and livestock.
Wildlife/ Hunting: Whitetail deer, Rio Grande turkey, duck, geese, quail, dove, feral hogs, and many varmints such as coyotes and bobcats can be found on this property. Deer hunting should be excellent in this secluded portion of Stephens county. There are a few areas around the ranch that were once cultivated fields. These areas could be easily grubbed to create new, smaller food plots.
Cattle/ Grazing Lease: There is a hunting and grazing lease in place that can be terminated, with sufficient notice allowing for property removal, when a ranch contract is executed. Stocking rate for this property is believed to be 1 animal unit per 30 acres depending upon rainfall amounts during the year.
Utilities: Comanche Electric Cooperative provides electricity to this part of Stephens County. Electric service is currently in place to the hunter's cabin. Ground water is possible, but varies in this area. Rural water is three (3) miles away located south on County Road 102. A water catchment system or fresh water hauling may be the best options for a camp or household use.
Minerals: No minerals are being offered with this sale. There are three (3) active oil/ gas wells in the southeast corner of the property.
