The DKH Ranch is an outdoorsman’s paradise located just minutes from Bridgeport, Texas, and represents the rare opportunity to own a large ranch within an hour of the DFW metroplex. Coming in as the fourth largest ranch in Wise County, this ranch offers an amazing investment opportunity in the desirable area of fast-growing Wise County, where development and population numbers are booming. The 2,807± acre property has been in the same family since the 1930s and boasts an abundance of wildlife with conservation at the forefront. Whether you are a hunter or an investor, this ranch offers something for you.

This ranch boasts abundant deer and turkey populations, offering hunters a remarkably high success rate. Enrolled in the Texas Parks and Wildlife MLD program since 2018, it delivers exceptional deer hunting opportunities, yielding over 150 class deer annually. With approximately 400 deer on-site in 2017, the ranch utilized the harvest option for four years before transitioning to the conservation option last year. Biologist recommendations led to the harvesting of 30 deer (11 bucks and 19 antlerless) in the previous year, and hunters benefit from the MLD program’s extended hunting season.

While feral hog numbers have significantly decreased due to diligent management, proximity to Lake Bridgeport ensures consistent waterfowl hunting, featuring gadwall, widgeon, teal, pintail, mallards, and ringnecks. Furthermore, dove hunting remains consistently productive each year.

The ranch features a stunning 6,058± square-foot custom home with captivating sunset vistas from the porch. Boasting 5 spacious bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, it comfortably accommodates guests and families. A generous family room with lofty ceilings offers a welcoming space for relaxation after outdoor pursuits. The house includes a basement and ample storage. A covered 500-yard shooting range sits on the southern end of the property.

Paved main roads with caliche base ensure easy ranch access, while most trails are cleared for four-wheel drive, with some requiring a UTV/ATV. Perimeter fencing is predominantly in good condition.

On the northern side, a structurally sound 1,247± square-foot house from 1950 awaits renovation, with electricity and water available, ideal for a ranch manager’s residence. Both houses have access to electricity.

The ranch has a total of 10 ponds located across the property as well as multiple seasonal creeks which provide good habitat and a few excellent locations for the creation of a duck marsh. The 2 largest are about 4 acres and have consistently held water even through droughts.

The ranch sits over the Trinity Aquifer where most well depths are around 200 feet and produce an ample amount of water. The ranch has 5 water wells on the property. Two wells serve the main house, while on the north side of the property near the older house, there are an additional two. The condition of these two wells is unknown. The third is a solar well in the middle of the property at 260 feet, producing over 10 gallons per minute.

There is a 16” waterline on FM 920 (Walnut Creek Special Utility District) that should be considered for future development potential.
