Property Information

Fort Knox Ranch
Benjamin, Texas

Location:

Located in the big ranch country of Knox County just five miles east of Benjamin, Texas, on Highway 82 near the famed 6666 Ranch (Four Sixes). Conveniently located 1 hour north of Abilene, 2 hours east of Lubbock, and approximately 155 miles from Dallas/Fort Worth. Other large ranches in the area besides the 6666 Ranch include W. T. Waggoner Estate Ranch, Pitchfork Ranch, Tongue River Ranch, and Circle Bar Ranch.

Terrain:

The Fort Knox Ranch is a turn-key property that is seldom seen on the market, offering fantastic views, large cedar break escarpments, mesquite flats, diverse terrain for recreational activities, and excellent hunting in big ranch country. The headquarters is conveniently located near the ranch’s southeast entrance and sits atop the higher ground of the property, offering outstanding views of the Wichita valley breaks to the north. A large 30 x 100 barndominium style shop has living quarters with an open design kitchen/den, bunkroom, large utility room, and two-bathroom layout that is great for large gatherings at the ranch. The shop also houses two large rollup doors for secure storage of vehicles, in addition, the east end of the shop offers covered protection for tractors and other large pieces of equipment. A nice, covered patio provides a beautiful setting to enjoy the sun setting on the Big Country. In addition, a new three bedroom/two bath doublewide home is located just west of the barndominium, which features a large master bedroom/bath, laminate flooring, and additional den area with fireplace.

There are multiple large elevation changes extending to 150+ drops from the cedar-rimmed mesas to the deep painted canyon walls below. The property has good surface water with eight ponds and several springs with pools along the brushy creek bottom that extends through the center of the ranch. Several of these ponds have been cleaned and deepened, while others are new, having been built this spring. These offer an excellent water source for wildlife, livestock, and fishing. Some areas of the ranch are rolling, with minimal brush and excellent native grasses while most other areas are more elevated and heavier in cedar, mesquite, and hackberry. This ranch is a great setup for the outdoorsman who loves to hunt and likes rough ranch country with lots of character. The property has been high fenced with 5 miles of perimeter game-proof fencing and stocked with multiple species of exotic game including axis, fallow, elk, blackbuck, nilgai, scimitar horned oryx, mouflon, aoudad sheep, and native whitetail deer to provide exceptional trophy opportunities. In addition, a four-acre divided breeder/soft release pen has a plumbed water supply from a nearby spring. These pens are located in a more remote section on the property and are perfect for keeping wildlife calm. Multiple food plot areas are scattered throughout the ranch and provide additional supplemental nutrition for wildlife. Interior roads have been upgraded to allow more access to remote areas of the property with main access roads graveled for all weather convenience. A long-distance shooting range is setup just north of the headquarters with shooting platform and bench at various distances out to 1,000 yards! With its excellent access, multiple year-round activities, and the ability to walk right in and enjoy, the Fort Knox Ranch is definitely worth seeing!
