Deer Creek Ranch - Erath County, Thurber, TX

This 1,129 acre ranch is a terrific whitetail property with an established deer herd of enhanced characteristics via introductions of 200” genetics. It has great brush, plenty of water and dynamic terrain, all within 70 miles of Ft. Worth.

Wildlife: The ranch has been fully loaded with superior whitetails (all direct offspring from the sire buck photos shown on this listing) varied in ages up to 6 years old, that have an estimated value of over $500,000. There have not been any cows on the ranch since the owner bought it about 7 years ago.

Water: This property has 10 lakes and ponds that help provide good habitat for deer, turkey and quail. The largest lakes are 7.5 acres and 2.5 acres, and there has been some initial land clearing for a 30+/- acre lake site on the southwest corner of the ranch. Water wells in the area are around 150’ and are good in volume but not potable, so there are 2 community water connections to the ranch.

Topography: The topography ranges from 1,000 to 1,200 feet in elevation, and offers a real brush country experience. The ranch hunts and feels like a lot more than it really is, yet at the same time this is a good-sized ranch that is at a manageable size. 75% of the ranch soils are sandy loam, and the balance is in clay, where the good lakes are located. The ranch is currently divided with a cross fence into 470 acres and 650 acres.

Location: The ranch is near Thurber about 70 miles West of Fort Worth in the northwest corner of Erath county. It is on the south side of I-20, east of Highway 16, and only 7 miles from Mary’s Café in Strawn.

Improvements: Improvements include 11-12 Boss deer blinds, 5 corn feeders, and 6 protein feeders. There are 6 miles of perimeter high fencing that is less than 6 years old, a 1 mile high fenced cross-fence (completed in 2009), a soft-release pen for acclimating new deer to the ranch, and two barns of nominal value. There is also a 1 bedroom cabin that overlooks the main lake.

Utilities: Electricity, septic, 2 co-op water meters.

Minerals: The owner does not own any minerals, and there is no production. There are two buried gas lines on the south section of the ranch, and some gravel tailings from an abandoned coal mine that is used for road base material.

Taxes: The ranch is taxed under a wildlife classification.
