$4,620,000 Shamrock, TX 3,113± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

Elm Creek Ranch is an oasis in the eastern Texas Panhandle that has been managed for wild quail for the past 20+ years by native Oklahoman and quail enthusiast Mal Mixon. The 3,112± acre ranch features a broad fertile valley along year-round live water Elm Creek that is flanked on either side by dramatic finger bluffs covered with strong stands of colorful native grasses, shrubs, and trees. Elevation change is approximately 300' from the bluffs to the creek bottom. Although managed primarily for quail by longtime current ownership, the property has large numbers of whitetail deer with big-bodied Kansas strain genetics, as well as Rio Grande turkey and waterfowl. A few deep pools along Elm Creek provide fishing options. Good interior roads and quail "courses" to approximately 150 feeders scattered throughout the ranch make the property accessible despite the topography in some areas. The property is being offered turn-key with all furnishings, rolling stock, equipment, vehicles and hunting accessories. Elm Creek ranch is offered separately and in conjunction with the 5,771.46 acre Washita River Hunting Ranch located approximately 50 minutes north, near Alison in Hemphill County. The offering is surface only and is subject to a conservation easement in favor of the Nature Conservancy. Elm Creek Ranch is truly one of the best hunting ranches and most scenic Texas ranches we have brought to market.

Wildlife Resources

Intense habitat management and a conservation easement have served to make Elm Creek Ranch one of the best quail hunting properties in the Texas Panhandle enjoyed only by family and friends of the owner. In the 2016/2017 season the hunters pushed 30 coveys in a single day. Numbers are down, as they are statewide, but the property appears to have adequate brood stock and conditions are near ideal going into the nesting season. But quail are not the only source of incredible hunting on the property as whitetail deer have long found sanctuary in the food plots along elm creek and the canyons that break toward the valley. Rio Grand turkey are also present in huntable numbers as the roost along Elm Creek and Corral Creek.
