Description

Rafter DV Ranch is a remote, high-fenced ranch tucked away in some of the most picturesque lands in Stephens County. With breathtaking views, loads of wildlife, and comfortable accommodations, this property has something to offer year around. Middle Fork Gunsolus Creek boasts over a mile of high-bank frontage, presenting minimal flooding in rainy months. Large hardwoods cover the creek's bottoms, providing a remote path for wildlife to travel. This waterway also provides prime habitat for turkeys to roost, offering some of the best spring turkey hunting in the area. Two fishing ponds provide off-season entertainment for all ages. The southern pasture has a third pond with water for wildlife and cattle. During the colder months, these ponds and the creek will hold several species of ducks. Several food plots are thoughtfully placed throughout the ranch to provide space for dominant bucks during the rut. Each elevated blind overlooks a food plot with an all-season feeder and easy access without disturbing wildlife. East of the creek is a highly productive Bermuda Grass field prepped yearly and lightly grazed after a cut. This secluded ranch is down a half-mile easement with no traffic noise and dark, peaceful nights full of stars.


Improvements include a two-bedroom owner's cabin featuring modern amenities and a rustic charm. Behind the owner's cabin are a multipurpose workshop/reloading shed, a laundry building with storage, and a custom chicken coop. Two additional guests can comfortably stay in the nearby detached bunkhouse containing a kitchenette and full bath. All the dwellings are built on a high elevation point, offering dramatic views to the east. A short distance away is a barn with stalls, an arena, and cattle working facilities. 


Agent's Comments -- Taking special pride in the construction of this ranch, the owner strategically planned every improvement and every mature whitetail harvested. By doing so, over the years, the owner has enjoyed watching 200+ inch deer graze without the worry of losing these trophies to neighboring properties. Rafter DV Ranch is a diversified income-producing property offering deer hunting, top-notch turkey hunting, pig hunting, coastal hay, and cattle ranching. A hired foreman helps guide and sell hunts while also managing the deer herd and cattle operation. He is willing to support the new owner upon agreement.
