Property Description

Located just two hours northeast of Dallas, near De Kalb, Texas, sits Mill Creek Ranch. This unique 455 +/- acre property borders the Red River and has been developed into a highly managed waterfowl and trophy deer hunting property. Mill Creeks location in the three corners area of Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas is where both the Central Flyway and Mississippi Flyway meet. This area is known for its tremendous concentration of Mallards and has several refuges and high-end duck clubs within the region. Red Slough Waterfowl Management area is about five miles due north of the property, and the famous Grassy Lake Duck Club is down the river to the east. This area is a funnel for migrating waterfowl and Mill Creek Ranch attracts its share of the ducks. In 2004 two-thirds of the property was placed in the Wetlands Reserve Program to increase the waterfowl habitat. The ranch has 11 wetland units and 6 water control structures. Levees have been constructed and the water levels are manipulated for the planting of Millet and Smartweed growth. Annual rainfall is generally adequate to fill the wetland units for hunting, but if necessary, pumping from the river, or the mouth of Mill Creek can be done. Mill Creek runs through the property for about two and one-half miles and is a major highway for trophy deer, turkey and hogs. There are also two additional smaller creeks on the ranch. Mill Creek Ranch has a two bedroom one-bath lodge that can be expanded if needed. The lodge is located one quarter mile from the property and is an easy ATV or side by side ride to and from. There is also a very large recently built commercial storage building with water, heat, and electric, and can be used for storing of boats, tractors, decoys, ATVS, hunting vehicles and other equipment. All owned minerals will be conveyed with an acceptable offer.

Hunting-Fishing-Wildlife Habitat
Mill Creek Ranch is located on the Red River and is in the middle of a waterfowl highway. This property provides both high volume duck hunting and trophy deer hunting. The Red River is also known for producing trophy whitetail deer, and Mill Creek is not any exception. Other wildlife on the property include wild turkeys, hogs, and there is excellent dove hunting. The property has 350 +/- acres in the Wetlands Reserve Program which has created a wildlife mecca. Eleven wetland impoundments consistently hold large numbers of ducks in the winter. Several of the impoundments are planted in millet, with the others full of smartweed and other native wetland plants. All of these provide food sources for the ducks and provide excellent hunting. The other 105 +/- acres consist of hardwood timber bottoms and highlands and are not in the WRP Program. The property is not being hunted has not been hunted in over ten years. The Red River flyway continues to winter a high concentration of Mallards, and during the rainy months of winter the property can provide some flooded green timber hunting that rivals the Arkansas Delta. Bowie County receives on average 56 +/- inches of rainfall per year which is well above the national average.
