Small Hunting Property With Scenic Lake



Here is a rare opportunity to own a small recreational ranch with your own private 4-acre lake. This property provides great seclusion yet is conveniently located within 1.5 hours of the DFW Metroplex. There are rolling elevation changes and the terrain is mostly wooded, primarily with oak, providing the feel of a larger property. The thick cover provides excellent hunting opportunities for whitetail deer, wild hogs, turkey, and predators.  There is a small older cabin in need of repairs and a covered storage building for your equipment and ATVs.
