The River Run Ranch
202 +/- Acres
Hardeman/Foard County, Texas
This northwest Texas ranch is located on Hardeman/Foard county line, approximately 200 miles from the DFW metroplex. It is protected on its north side by Copper Breaks State Park, a 1900 acre low-fence wildlife preserve, and bordered on its other sides by privately held farms and ranches, some 2000 acres large.
The River Run Ranch (RRR) straddles the mainstream Pease River, providing frontage on both sides for over a half mile. Devil's Creek, which feeds a 90 acre lake on the state park, merges with the Pease just before it flows through the ranch, so it runs strong nearly all the time. During severe droughts the river can slow down to a trickle, but it normally runs in a smooth stream and rarely has gone dry.
The terrain of this unique ranch varies from steep 80' rock bluffs and rolling cedar covered hills to a sandy river bottom and dense wooded southern pasture, full of mature hackberry trees, bushy mesquite shrubs, and scattered cottonwoods. The Pease runs directly underneath the largest of these bluffs, along the middle of the north border. From this vantage point you can see up and down the river, all the pastures, hills, etc. In the distance to the south, Sugarloaf Mountain and Sloans Springs Canyon announce their presence in varying shades of blue and grey - it is truly a site to behold.
Hunting on RRR is fantastic, with 150+ scoring trophy whitetails, javelina herds, feral hogs, turkey, quail, wild cats, coyote! Virtually any species native to the area will be found on this ranch. The present owner has kept corn feeders going year around to establish consistent patterns with the wildlife. The hills and open pasture land are perfect for rifle hunting out of tower blinds, while the tall hardwoods allow for tree stands and excellent bowhunting.
The ranch has a camp area on the north side, where utilities are set up for an RV. A community water line just east of the property can be tapped onto and ran to the campsite, if desired. There is a 40' metal storage container too, large enough to store all your hunting gear, corn sacks, coolers, and park a UTV to protect it from the weather. This means you can keep everything you need for a hunting trip right on sight, where it will be safe and waiting for you when you come back.
The north pasture of the RRR is accessed by a deeded easement from Highway 6; the south pasture can only be reached by crossing the river from the north pasture. There are no vehicle roads on the property, only ATV trails. This was done on purpose, so that the fullness of the ranch can be taken in when going through it.
Asking Price: $1500/acre (reduced from $1750/acre; mineral rights available)
I've been on very few similar-sized tracts in this area of the state with such natural beauty. The views are long, the wildlife, abundant, and recreational opportunities, endless - hiking, hunting, camping, four-wheeling, horseback riding, stargazing. Call land agent Ben Belew at cell phone (940) 357-9940 to schedule a time for your private showing of the River Run Ranch.
