Iron Bridge Creek Ranch awaits the family investor that seeks to hunt and play in the beautiful spring fed timbered hills of central east Texas. Conveniently located two hours southeast of Dallas and two hours north of Houston, IBCR is an exclusively beautiful wooded getaway. Game fenced in 2016, the ranch has since taken its current form where improved and trophy wildlife have begun to be established. With over 200 feet of irregular elevation change in the rolling timbered hills, IBCR leaves you with the never fulfilled desire to explore more of its 557± acres. Three main water courses include two spring fed creeks that wind and fall through their hillside courses, and One Arm Creek, which makes up the majority of the western boundary. The recently constructed “bathhouse” serves the primitive campground headquarters, offering an elegant reprieve from the campfire and weather extremes. Take a hot shower, run a load of much needed laundry, or just have a nice lounge in the breezeway to sit and visit while out of the elements. The small cabin offers beds and/or a place for ranch labor. The ranch is accessed by endless trails and roads winding through the creek valleys, bottoms, and hilltops. Five separate bridges make navigating the ranch easier, ranging from 20 feet to 90 feet, but there are several native rock or gravel creek crossings to keep the experience a little wilder. Five interior fields are currently equipped with blinds and feeders, with additional feeding stations around the ranch. The ranch purchased a total of seven Premier Blinds, which are all in use on the ranch. The ranch has been managed with prescribed burns and will continue to benefit from aggressive management, whether timber or understory development. Hardwoods include various oak, pecan, hickory, holly, elm, birch, and sycamore. Loblolly pines in small amount of managed plantation, and native shortleaf and loblolly also in natural uneven aged management. A modest pine timber harvest would likely be beneficial to the overall future development of the ranch’s ecology. Extensive efforts were made to remove all native whitetail from the ranch, which was believed to be successful. In 2019, the whitetail acquired and acclimated in the feeder pens were released. These were all trophy quality whitetail bucks acquired from reputable trophy breeders. More pedigree information available upon request. A small number of axis and elk range within the ranch as well. Maydelle, Texas is located between Palestine and Rusk, on US HWY 84, and in the heart of western Cherokee county. The ranch is located just a few miles south of town on a paved county road. One of the most famous local attractions is the Texas State Railroad, where “vintage steam and diesel locomotives take passengers across the celebrated rails of the Piney Woods Route between the quaint East Texas towns of Palestine and Rusk on a 50-mile roundtrip adventure.” There are other state parks, and numerous sites and towns nearby as well to explore within a short drive from the ranch. Iron Bridge Creek Ranch is waiting for the next generation of enthusiasts to develop and manage its assets to their full potential. Wildlife, timber, and beautiful water features among the rolling hills await the next family who desires to make this their own. The Facts: ~ Game fenced by J4 in 2016 (26,000 feet) ~ Trophy quality wildlife ~ Dramatic spring fed creeks buried in the hills ~ Heavily wooded ~ Elevations from 300-510 feet above MSL ~ Merchantable timber ~ Two small adjacent out parcels ~ Bathhouse ~ Cabin ~ 415 foot deep water well drilled in 2017 ~ Soft release pens ~ Primitive camping base camps ~ Feeders and blinds included ~ Located just a few miles south of Maydelle where one of the most famous local attractions is the Texas State Railroad

This stunning hilltop ranch is one of a kind. It is high fenced, infused with superior whitetails and wooded with a mix of hardwoods and pine plantations. The manicured ranch boasts two complementary ranch style homes with far-reaching views sitting on top of the 650 high peak, and it is located just southeast of Palestine. This turnkey trophy whitetail ranch is also ideal for additional stocking with exotics and is priced competitively for the market. It is ready for immediate hunting and outdoor enjoyment! Highlights: TWO homes on one of the highest peaks in Anderson County with 360 degree views High fencing with predator wire Top end hunting blinds and feeders Two metal storage buildings Approximately $300,000 value in pine plantation Large Carrizo water well Improvements: This ranch is ideal for bringing in exotics and managing the trophy deer herd. There are over 5 miles of galvanized high fence around the perimeter of the ranch, complete with additional varmint guard wire buried two feet underground. This game fence is in excellent condition: there are no hogs on the ranch. There are two ranch style homes on this ranch and they are made in the same construction style, with similar materials. They are in excellent condition and have been very well maintained. 2015 home: 2,500 square feet of living area, not including the wrap around porch. This home has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, an office and workout studio, and of course the main living room and dining room. The living and main dining area is open to the second floor ceiling and the entire house has large windows with views out over the hilltop areas. The wood paneling is very comfortable and welcoming as well. 2007 home: 1,592 square feet of living area, not including the wrap around porch. This home has 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths and makes for an ideal guest home. 2014 fully enclosed workshop: 1,650 square feet with the overhang. It has concrete flooring, and is stubbed out for future plumbing, and a walk-in cooler drain. 2006 fully enclosed workshop: 2,000 square feet with concrete flooring, and full utilities. 2006 mobile home: 14’ x 60’. It is currently used for a ranch foreman’s home. Covered rifle range Wildlife: The white-tailed deer population is healthy and abundant across this high fenced game ranch. The owner introduced over 30 genetically superior deer from east Texas breeders Briar Lakes Ranch and Windy B Ranch into the property approximately 11 years ago, and he has carefully managed the wildlife since then. Most of the native deer were trapped and removed at the time of this initial stocking. Although this ranch is set up well to also be a commercial hunting property, it has only been hunted and used recreationally personally by the owner. The ranch was stocked once with quality whitetail deer but it has never been a deer breeding facility. It is currently classified as Level 3 in the Texas Managed Land Deer program, which provides for an extended hunting season and additional deer management opportunities through Texas Parks and Wildlife. Land: This ranch has one of the highest peaks in Anderson County, and this substantial hilltop has been groomed to allow for very far views in all directions; absolutely unmatched anywhere in Anderson County. There are two valuable pine plantation stands of approximately 155 acres on the north side of the ranch and 69 acres on the south that have been professionally managed by Mike Cline Forestry. These supplement the overall value of this ranch asset and also provide some potential tax advantages for the next owner. The balance of the acreage is comprised of a good blend of pines and other hardwood species for a diverse forage base and mix of cover for wildlife. There is a good road system throughout the ranch, yet most of the acreage has remained untouched for wildlife. The soils under the ranch are from the Cuthbert, Bowie, and Kirvin formations in the Western Coastal Plain soil region. These soils are highly weathered and acidic and support pine-hardwood vegetation, typically characterized by loblolly pine. Click here to view an interactive ranch hunting map. Water: Another value asset to the ranch is the deep and very productive water well, which historically produced approximately 450 gpm out of the deep Carrizo-Wilcox formation. The Camp Hill water well (TCEQ# 3820604) was drilled in 1968 to 1,840’ for a former oil and gas operator, and is approximately 13” in size. An existing well of this size can be advantageous not only because it would be very expensive to permit and drill, but it can also be used to irrigate and to supplement future water features on the ranch. Some have also considered this well to be the most prolific well in the area due to its location on the higher part of the hill and the gravity flow potential that comes with it. This well is currently not in use, and was recently supporting the landscape irrigation for the main house with a small solar pump. The ranch is within the Neches and Trinity Valleys Groundwater Conservation District. There are a few ponds scattered throughout the ranch, and the largest is approximately 4 acres in size. It is stocked with bass and bluegill, and has a wooden swimming dock and concrete spillway. The homes and barns are serviced by both well water and community water, and the ranch gets an average of 40” of rainfall annually. Location: The ranch is located in south central Anderson County, approximately 7 miles outside of Palestine. The drive is approximately 2 hours from Dallas, and 2.5 hours from Houston. It is accessed by paved Anderson County Road 153, which brings electric and water utilities as well as underground internet and phone service. Minerals: There is no production on the ranch, and the owner does not own any of the mineral estate. (Note that there are several old well locations that produced in the past and may show up on older aerial maps, but these have been plugged and abandoned, and the surface was remediated to its natural state.) Easements: There is one easement on the ranch. It is a buried gas line and is on the far eastern edge of the ranch. Significant ranch equipment and furniture are also available. Ask broker for details. Taxes: The ranch is taxed under a 1d1 valuation with a timber classification, and the annual property taxes are approximately $8,000. (It is taxed at the same rate as the agricultural valuation.) Shown by appointment only.
