The property is comprised of multiple agricultural fields and Oak/Mesquite woodlands with a riparian corridor. The ag fields include two 7-acre Coastal Bermuda fields and a 24-acre tract that has been planted in oats the last 3 years with plans to continue this fall. The hay fields were recently cut and produced 30 round bales with a second cut in the forecast. All of the fields are fenced for livestock. The remaining 35 acres is Oak/Mesquite woodland with many majestic Live Oaks that line Crabtree Creek. The creek feeds into the Colorado River, which is less than half a mile away, making the creek a tremendous travel corridor for wildlife in the area. The property has produced some great bucks over the years for the current owner. In addition to the Live Oaks and Mesquite, other trees on the property include Pecan, Hackberry, Cedar Elm, Post Oak, and Sweet Gum. Other mid-story brush include Texas Persimmon, Whitebrush, Tickle Tongue, Ashe Juniper, Green Briar, Allthorn, Southwest Bernardia, and Agarita. The grass and forb layer is comprised of Little Bluestem, Silver Bluestem, Texas Wintergrass, Switchgrass, Kleingrass, Side Oats Grama, Old Field Threeawn, Bristlecone Grass, Western Ragweed, Frost Weed, Texas Croton, and Snow on the Mountain.

There is a half-acre pond on the eastern side of the property which supplies year-round water and is stocked with bass and bluegill. There is another smaller pond on the north end that is currently holding water but has been known to dry out. Crabtree Creek traverses the property in a general north to south fashion and is best described as a wet-weather creek.

Near the entrance there is a 1,184 sq. ft. house with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath that is currently used a hunter’s cabin, but with some improvements could serve as weekend home/permanent residence. Other vertical improvements include a 1,700 sq. ft. barn in good condition that would be perfect for storing a UTV and other equipment. There is a hand-dug water well behind the house that served the house but will need a new air jet pump to function properly. Electricity is provided by Hamilton Electric Co-Op. There is great perimeter and internal fencing comprised of both net wire and traditional barb wire.

With an acceptable offer, the seller will also convey two 5×6 MB Ranch King Blinds, a 4×6 MB Ranch King Blind, all of which are on 5 ft. towers, two 600lb MB Ranch King Mighty Buck Corn feeders, and 2 Hang’Em High corn feeders. The MB Ranch King products are top of the line and are in great shape.

The seller believes to own all of the mineral estate and may convey a portion with an acceptable offer.
