The Clear Fork of the Brazos River provides some of the most diverse lands in Stephens County; along this prolific river lies an animal sanctuary known as G-Bar Ranch. River country in this area produces phenomenal white-tail deer and Rio Grande turkey all of which have not been hunted in the past 25+ years. The current owner has cultivated a safe environment for these animals to thrive in abundance. Daily schedules, coupled with hand-feeding techniques, have created docile wildlife and a feeling of a high-fence ranch, yet this entire ranch is low-fenced. The mix of cover on this land is outstanding with post oak thickets, monstrous live oak clusters as well as multiple pecan orchards. The 1.9 miles of Clear Fork frontage has several accessible areas making it easy to enjoy all a river has to offer; including kayaking, canoeing, fishing and more. The views on this ranch stretch for miles across the lush Brazos River bottom and off into the distance. The best scenery on G-Bar Ranch can be seen from a ridge dubbed Prayer Rock. Prayer Rock is used by this family to speak to their savior in an area that genuinely feels like Heaven on Earth.

Just below Prayer Rock lies a beautiful pond full of catfish, crappie, and bass. In the center of the property sits a food plot currently in sunflowers as well as a pole barn with several covered awnings to protect the farm equipment that conveys with the ranch. The property includes a two-bedroom house featuring center-block construction which lends to its extreme durability against natural elements. Nearby the cabin is a small food plot with a pecan orchard surrounded by the river on three sides. There are several ATV trails throughout the property to access the different areas with ease. The G-Bar Ranch is thick with old history with the findings of arrowheads, old shell casings, antique metals, and various artifacts. Overall, G-Bar Ranch is equivalent to many of the state parks in Texas; it takes generations to prep a ranch in this manner.

Agent's Comments -- Due to all the rain this last year the Clear Fork has frequently been running creating a tranquil setting to sit and enjoy listening to the birds and the river running while watching the deer graze in the front yard. It takes generations of work to have the deer, turkey, and fish waiting to be fed on a low fence ranch like this. The pecan orchards are a privileged treat to wildlife and provide supplemental income for future owners. The small amount of oil and gas activity does not impede upon the land. One saltwater injection well lies along the county road and another old well on the western portion which hasn't produced in over two years.
