The north 1/3 section is mostly terraced pastureland. The south section has approximately 240 acres of terraced wheat fields, ideal for deer plots, cultivated dry land, or to establish some improved/native grasses. The south section also has a mix of pastureland and canyons. Both parcels are suited well for hunting with ample cover, but also serves well for grazing with the mix of native pastureland.

Hunting and Wildlife
The property is well equipped for a variety of hunting and an ideal recreation and hunting property. Mule Deer are more than abundant in the area, with multiple dozens of deer seen on the wheat fields.

TPWD issues additional antlerless mule deer tags to the land owners. White tail deer are also in the area. There is an abundance of ducks often seen on the stock ponds. Dove hunting is superb, and the property has great habitat for quail and turkey. Sandhill Crane are also known to visit the area. The property also is great for hog hunting.
