WILDLIFE & HUNTING: Bass fishing/duck hunting paradise. The Waggoner Ranch provides the ideal habitat for an abundance of wildlife and deer, turkey, hog, and varmint hunting are outstanding, with incredible seasonal duck and dove hunting. The terrain offers excellent blind locations for hunting rough brush covered draws, grassy open terrain, or food plots secluded in hardwoods. Also a great ranch to jump in the truck, jeep, or RTV and drive trails to view all the wildlife.
WATER: A 40 acre lake anchors an array of creeks and stock ponds. There are multiple seasonal and spring fed creeks meandering through the ranch and 19 good stock tanks.

There are also numerous locations suitable for additional stock tanks and/or lake construction.
