This outstanding high fenced hunting and recreational ranch is located in Mitchell County, Texas 13 miles south of the town of Colorado City at the end of CR 123. The Jayhawk Creek Ranch is one of the finest hunting properties in the area with first class accommodations, world-class whitetail deer, unsurpassed live water, and an outstanding herd of exotics which features over 33 species of animals.


   The topography of the Jayhawk Creek Ranch is very diverse with over 3 miles of both sides of the flowing Colorado River, and 2.3 miles of live water in Jayhawk Creek. Elevations on the ranch range from 1,980 feet along the river, to 2,080 feet along the elevated ridges and bluffs. There are many areas on the ranch that overlook the rough and scenic Colorado River Valley below. There is a moderate to sometimes thick canopy of brush species which includes mesquite and cedar that provide excellent wildlife cover. Average annual rainfall on the ranch is 21 inches.
