This property also holds numerous large creek-fed bodies of water that flood low lying areas filled with aquatic vegetation as well as large trees for cover and roosting. The large tanks also hold great fishing for perch, catfish and bass.
Game animals that have been observed and hunted on the property include white-tailed deer, Rio Grande turkey, bobwhite and scaled (blue) quail, as well as mourning and white-winged dove. This property is also ideal for hunting and observing non-game animals, waterfowl, reptiles and amphibians.

This fifth generation family-owned ranch boasts years of history. Muddy Creek Ranch is situated near the Marcy Trail, Captain Randolph Marcy’s Trail 1849-1858 and the McKenzie Trail. The Marcy Trail was a key supply route for the 4th U.S. Calvary. The land of Muddy Creek Ranch was home to pioneers and was a favorite American Indian hunting ground. An original patent deed, granted February 3, 1876, from Governor Richard Coke and the State of Texas to the Texas and Pacific Railway includes land alongside Muddy Creek Ranch for the purpose of railroad expansion. This deed has been given back to the landowner and is included with the property.
