Land: The Dicar sits high upon red bluffs overlooking the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River with some of the most diverse and desirable attributes found on a single ranch in the region. With nearly 3 miles of river frontage, the ranch possesses stunning wildlife habitat with an excellent mix of both topography and landscape features. Numerous, deep draws leading to the river hold towering, mature hardwood trees and there is a great balance of native cover to productive tillable acreage. The ranch is extremely well maintained with miles of internal roads, established hunting stand setups, productive wheat fields, and good water distribution throughout.
Wildlife: The Dicar Ranch is truly a recreational hunting paradise, offering something for everyone. The ranch has high fencing surrounding the entire perimeter and the owners have managed the ranch primarily for trophy whitetail and other native game, while also introducing some Transcaspian rams and fallow deer into the mix as well. Supplemental protein feeders, large food plots, and water troughs are already strategically placed throughout, providing all the tools needed for a much larger commercial hunting operation if desired. The whitetail hunting is exceptional with enhanced genetics already introduced and the habitat already present on the ranch supporting continued advancement. The natural topography of the ranch mixed with native vegetation allows for a phenomenal quail hunting scenario and the bird hunting on the ranch can be world-class. Turkeys are all over the ranch and the spring turkey hunting is some of the best you can find anywhere. During winter months, there are several places in the river bottom marshes that hold a large number of waterfowl and with some focused efforts, those areas could be enhanced even more.
Water: There are excellent sources of water on the ranch featuring numerous surface tanks, water wells and windmills supplementing water troughs, wet weather creek bottoms, all capped off with 3+/- miles of river frontage on the north side of the ranch. A very reliable water well on the ranch pumps to a storage tank that then feeds into several different watering troughs to ensure water for the game in the dry years. The groundwater and number of wells and windmills for watering game/cattle on the ranch is a very important feature to the ranch, especially in the region.
Improvements: The ranch amenities in place are just what you need to step in and start enjoying the ranch immediately featuring a well maintained main lodge, guest lodge, large shop, and dog kennels. The main lodge is a furnished 2,100+/- ft home that has a spacious kitchen and living space, master bedroom (with master bath), and four other bedrooms that help house all the family and friends for those big holiday or hunting occasions. A mudroom is perfectly located near the side door to store all your day’s hunting gear and there is also a washroom right next to the mudroom for taking hunting clothes straight to the washer.

The guest lodge is perfect for entertaining hunting guests and extended family featuring approx. 1,500ft of living space with two bunk rooms, one full bath, and a large game room with couches/TV viewing for the big game, a pool table, a gun safe room, and a small kitchen. The lodge has approx 500 sqft of a covered concrete porch on the west side with a swinging bench to toast the evening sunsets.
The 50x40 equipment barn on a concrete slab is big enough for your UTV, ranch truck, and tractor with three roll-up bay doors.
