Diamond C Bow Hunting Ranch is an established high-fenced exotic sporting ranch. This hunting outfit has been advertising at www.texasbowhunt.com for over 14 years and has a well-established clientele of experienced bowhunters looking to stalk exotic animals, wild pigs, and more. Strategically located an hour and a half west of Fort Worth and only 30 miles from Possum Kingdom Lake for DFW clientele. Diamond C Bow Hunting Ranch is 560 acres of land with ideal terrain coupled with thick browse and cover for each exotic species to thrive in the Texas habitat.
Headquarters sits in the Breeding Pasture, which started as the original 80-acre tract of land hog paneled for bow-only pig hunting. This Breeding Pasture is loaded with animals not yet released or marketed to be sold. A custom metal building now operates as a well-appointed hunting lodge capable of accommodating up to 16 guests per visit. After a day's successful hunt, all will enjoy swapping stories under the covered front porch illuminated by the outdoor rocked fireplace. Entering the lodge is a sizable open concept room with a full kitchen, dining area, living room, and space for a billiards table. There are four bedrooms, three of which contain two sets of bunks, while one large room has two queen size beds. Two full bathrooms with step-in tiled showers lie between the bedrooms and the common area. Next to the lodge sits additional buildings functioning as a gear room, animal processing shed, and a one-room guest cottage. Conveniently located next to the hunting facilities sits the foreman's house with a fenced yard and a water treatment system for the whole ranch. The Breeding Pasture is a unique experience with a multitude of exotics running about.
As hunters leave the crowded home pasture, they enter the quiet and secluded "Back 400". This is Diamond C's primary hunting pasture with huge, mature live oak mottes and bull mesquite patches. A herd of aoudad and scattered Red Stag work through the southern post oaks thickets, while the blackbuck tends to roam the open fields to the north. Axis and fallow deer can be seen scampering in the distance as one traverses the woodlands and into the edges. Planted fields of wheat supplement the animals thru the winter and then are scratched up to allow the native sunflowers to pop up during the summer to bring in flights of white-wing and mourning dove for the fall hunting season. This "Back 400" comes complete with a shallow duck pond that fluctuates and maintains the needed habitat for seasonal hunts. A draw running through the entire pasture provides ample water and supplies a 2.6-acre bass pond before running through to the Trophy Pasture. This 80 acres of the heaviest cover has the most dramatic elevation on the ranch and provides the preferred habitat for mature aoudad and mouflon sheep. Diamond C Bow Hunting Ranch provides all ingredients needed for a profitable high-fenced operation, including a seasoned manager willing to stay and show the business strategy in action.
Broker's Comments -- This is a unique opportunity to purchase an established income-producing high-fenced operation with the animals on the ranch, a website running, clientele set up, and most importantly, a foreman willing to stay on board the next year to ensure a smooth transition. I enjoy that each hunting pasture makes its own experience with various terrain and mixed tree cover. This diverse portion of Stephens County provides the habitat desired by each exotic animal on the ranch. Wooded draws and old fence lines with mature mesquites split the dove fields with ponds nearby, creating ideal hunting scenarios capable of safely hunting 20+ dove hunters. The water features are what complete this recreational ranch by providing bass fishing, exceptional duck habitat, and several more small "wildlife" tanks/ponds scattered throughout the ranch.
