Sportsman's Paradise approximately 5 miles Southwest of historic city of Hico in North central Texas. Legend has it that Billy the Kid did not die in Fort Sumner in 1881 but instead moved to Hico under an alias Brushy Bill Roberts and lived there until 1950. In Hico there are numerous very good restaurants, an old-fashioned ice cream parlor and the city has its own chocolate factory. For shopping there are antique stores, a nut/cheese/wine store, a photography and art gallery and other boutique shops. Annual events include a Steak Cook-off and Wine Festival in May, Billy the Kid Open Car Show each spring, Billy the Kid barbecue cook-off in November and a Fall Antiques Fair. The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is within an easy two-hour driving distance making it readily accessible for a family gathering destination, a weekend getaway or just sneaking out for a morning/afternoon hunt. This diverse 92.85 acre is a combination of solid native grass pastures (think food plots) and approximately 60% heavy to scattered wooded areas that makes for excellent wildlife cover or shady areas for a family picnic or camping. The tree cover includes various mature hardwoods: live oak, red oak, post oak, hack-berry, towering pecan trees, and a collection of beneficial wildlife browse including cedar, sumac and some mesquite. The area wildlife includes Whitetail deer, feral hogs, Rio Grande Turkey, ducks/dove, predators including coyotes, bobcat, Fox and various small game. For the fisherman and water fowler there is a large tank stocked with bass, catfish and bait fish and a smaller tank ready to be stocked. There is a Wildlife Exemption in place. All of this property (primarily Sandy loam) is easily accessible on by pickup, four-wheeler/ATV or horseback.
