Once part of the famed 6666 Ranch, the Flattop Ranch is a Quail Hunter’s Paradise. Located in King County, an area well known for its quail and deer hunting, the ranch has excellent quail habitat and an outstanding population with a roughly 50/50 mix of Blues and Bobwhites. The Whitetail deer population is abundant and several are identified in excess of 160 on the B&C scale. With 13 ponds and tanks, the dove hunting is excellent and the ranch is home to a large population of ducks during the winter. In between seasons, there are wild hogs to keep you active.
Situated on the Rolling Plains of Northwest Texas, the ranch has a diverse ecosystem. The topography is varied with grassy plains, canyons and mountaintops. The native grasses are strong and abundant, as the ranch has been rested for several years. The ranch is well watered, for both livestock and wildlife, by Co-Op water, 13 tanks and ponds, and 3 wet weathered creeks, to include the headwaters of Gyp Creek.
Flattop Ranch offers numerous building sites and mountaintops with 15 mile + views of the ranch and surrounding properties. To make building easier, water and electric are onsite and there is an excellent road system throughout. There are no mineral rights associated with the property, however, the wind rights are intact and transfer with the ranch.
