The landscape of the ranch is comprised of rolling to rough and broken native ranchland, accentuated with multiple draws and valleys.

Elevations range from 1,600 feet in the lower draws to 1,850 feet on the ridges and high points on the ranch. In addition to native ranchland, there is approximately 80 acres of farmland on the east side of the property that can be planted to wheat for livestock and also to attract populations of whitetail and mule deer. The ranch has abundant cover for wildlife with a moderate to dense cover of juniper and mesquite throughout-out the ranch.
Jackson Creek is a wet weather creek that crosses the property for over 3 miles, providing nice elevation changes. Pools of water are found along the creek throughout the year. In addition to Jackson Creek, there are multiple other draws and valleys found on the ranch.
Improvements consist of an older rock home that sits on a secluded bluff on the backside of the ranch overlooking the landscape below. This home has 3 bedrooms, 1 bath and a metal roof. The new owner could consider renovation and updating of the home as this location has the potential for a great weekend retreat. A rural water line crosses the ranch supplying fresh water to the home and nearby livestock tub. Electricity is provided to the ranch and home. Heat is provided by propane. Perimeter fencing is rated as good to fair on the property.

The Jackson Creek 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. Dove, quail, turkey, hogs, coyote and bobcats are also seen on the ranch. On occasion, mountain lions and javelina are seen in this area of the Rolling Plains. In the fall and winter months, abundant numbers of sandhill cranes and ducks are attracted to the ponds. Some of the ponds on the ranch appear to be suitable to be stocked with fish. The 80 acre wheat field on the east side of the ranch, and an approximate 10 acre food plot on the southwest side serve 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 hunted the ranch only minimally in recent years.
