There is abundant cover for wildlife with a moderate to sometimes dense cover of juniper and mesquite on the ranch.
There are multiple draws and valleys found on the property as well as earthen dams providing livestock water and habitat for wildlife and waterfowl.
There are no structural improvements. A rural water line is available, and electricity is provided to the ranch. With paved highway frontage, the ranch has potential for a ranch residence or a weekend retreat with hunting cabin.
As mentioned, a rural water line is available to the ranch property and will be completed with a tap and meter at seller’s expense. Livestock water is also provided by the earthen tanks. Pools of water can be found along the wet weather creek bottoms and draws during the year. There is one windmill on the property that is not being used, and the working condition is unknown.

The Cottle County Ranch offers some of the best hunting in the Texas Panhandle and Rolling Plains regions, with both whitetail and mule deer found on the ranch.

In the fall and winter months, abundant numbers of sandhill cranes and ducks are attracted to the ponds. The 80-acre wheat field on the east side of the ranch serves to enhance the deer populations. The Pease River is less than 1 mile to the north of this property, and its close proximity helps to attract wildlife to the area. The owners have minimally hunted the ranch in recent years.
