WATER: The ranch has Bear Creek running through the southerly portion of the deeded ground. Also the owner states that there is a small spring in the north western portion of the ranch. The addition of some stock ponds would enhance this ranch, both for cattle and wildlife. There are also several seasonal creeks on ranch in the ravines.
WILDLIFE: The owner states that the ranch is a part of a major deer migration trail and heavily used by deed in fall and winter. There are also Wild Turkeys and Quail on the ranch.

Late season deer hunting could be extraordinary on the ranch if enrolled in a PLM Program.
