Riverfront Hunting & Recreational Ranch For Sale in Chester, TX
Deep in the Piney Woods on the Neches River you’ll find the timeless, 1558 Acre, Carter Pasture Ranch. The natural beauty at Carter Pasture Ranch is simply breathtaking. A tour of the property feels as if you are transported back in time, with massive Cypress and Oak trees that have to be seen in order to appreciate.
By any standard, the hunting on Carter Pasture Ranch is first class. This ranch has not been hunted for over 4 years, because of which, it is nearly impossible to tour the property without seeing a group of whitetails. Several trophy whitetails have been spotted on trail cameras last season. Herds of deer can often be seen in the massive oak flats with beautiful meadows underneath. The variety of hunting locations, between the tower stands in the pasture, climbing stands in the cypress bottoms, and box blinds in the oak flats, is truly unique. Three massive cypress sloughs also provide for excellent duck hunting. Wood ducks and Mallards have routinely been taken from these gorgeous duck holes. Several creeks flow through the property, providing an easy opportunity to develop portions of the bottom into duck habitat.
The fishing at Carter Pasture Ranch cannot be overlooked. Once at the river it is obvious that very few boats, if any, navigate through this remote section of the Neches. Massive bends in the river form large eddies, providing for the perfect spot to cast a pole, run trotlines, or even noodle for the 50lb+ catfish that can be caught from this river. Standing at the river for no more than 5 minutes, you are sure to see a massive alligator gar surface. These ancient creatures offer first class fishing, whether by bow or by pole, due to their enormous size. Whitebass can also be caught from the Neches River when they are making their seasonal “run” up the river (February-April). Bank fishing from the the sandy white banks, bow fishing from flat bottom boats, running trotlines over the 2 mile stretch of river frontage; the fishing opportunities are endless at this ranch.
