Salt Prong Ranch is a one-of-a-kind Shackelford County Ranch with year-round live water running throughout the majority of the land. This portion of the Salt Prong of Hubbard Creek is after the North Fork, flows in the Salt Prong, and creates a significant flow of beautiful clear-blue water not common for creeks in this portion of Texas. This prolific creek provides ample water for the local wildlife while holding a multitude of fish in the deep, long stretches of water. Massive pecans emerge from the creek banks and in the diverse bottom country. Each pasture contains at least one pond with mature mesquites and scattered live oak clusters. A dozen fields ranging from 12 to 52 acres are cross-fenced from the pastures and spread throughout the property. These fields create ideal food plots to draw in the droves of dove and the legendary whitetail buck the Shackleford County is known for producing. Being surrounded by large, historic ranches of the area, the Salt Prong of Hubbard Creek is, in a sense, protected by the land. Salt Prong Ranch consists of 1,040 total acres accessed by a paved road just 5 miles east of the beloved town of Albany, TX.

Broker's Comments -- This is one of those ranches that I love being on. The Salt Prong of Hubbard Creek is a truly special creek with the potential for countless hours of fun. This live-water creek runs clear with a hint of blue, creating a hill-country river effect. You can easily spot-fish from the bank or kayak the long stretches of high-banked, deep water. The Salt Prong is by far the clearest creek in this neck of the woods. A landowner can hunt 5 or 50 dove hunters without safety concerns and with good flight patterns due to the layout of the fields. Shackelford County is known by sportsmen and women for an abundance of mourning and whitewing dove, quality quail, and true trophy white-tails. Ranches rarely change hands in this part of the world, and for a good reason. Salt Prong Ranch is one of the few true "live-water" ranches available. This is the first offering of this acreage to the public, consisting of 800+/- acres west of Cr 139 and 240/- acres on the east side of the road. This land is free of production, and this offering includes 1/2 of the owned mineral estate, including Executive Leasing Rights.
