The Deep Creek Ranch, which is 640± acres, is located in far northern Callahan County just south of the Shackelford County line. 12 miles south of Albany, Texas, and 5 miles west of Moran, Texas puts this ranch right in the middle of a great hunting area. Deer and quail hunting should be some of the best in west Texas as the ranch has never been commercially hunted with very light hunting from past owners.
The ranch has county road frontage on CR 319, both on the north side of the ranch and the entire western boundary of the property. The northern gate is located approximately 3 miles off FM 576 down CR 319 to the south. The county road is very well maintained.
Once you leave the property you are approximately 35 miles to Abilene, 90 miles to Weatherford, and 120 miles to Ft. Worth.
The property has been operated for the last 100 years as a cow/calf operation. There have been very few cattle on the ranch for the last 5+ years which is reflected in the great grass and turf coverage. Deep Creek, a large all-weather creek, runs the length of the ranch in a north/south direction. There are large holes of water up and down the creek even when it is not running. Huge oak trees can be found scattered across the hills with Mesquite trees covering the rest of the ranch.
The current owner is bringing electricity and city water to the property. A water meter will be available to the new owner. The existing owner is also going to clear a right of way and construct a brand new 5-strand barb wire fence on the southern boundary and the northern boundary where a current fence does not exist.
There are no existing improvements on the ranch.
Hunting on the ranch is really good. The deer have had no pressure for many years. The property is surrounded by large ranches which helps the game management. Quail hunting in good years should be as good as it gets in the area. Several pairs of bobwhites have been seen recently. Hogs and turkey are also frequent in the area. Dove hunting is also good in season. Fishing along the creek is good as well.
This ranch is considered to be well watered. Deep Creek provides water for stock and wildlife the entire length of the property and city water will also be available from a water line running along the county road.
If you are looking for a small recreational ranch close to the Metroplex, you need to come see this place for yourself. With a blank slate, you can build your own personal hunting and or cattle ranch along with your dream improvements, either for full-time occupancy or a family weekend getaway. Restaurants, great schools, and a beautiful downtown can be found in Albany, Texas only a 15-minute drive to the north.
