BlackJack Ranch sits on a gently rolling 1300 acre cattle and red deer ranch. As you enter the electric gate you will notice red deer and other exotics in various high fence pens ranging from a few acres to pens larger than 50 acres. This 15 acre lake is 20 feet deep. There is a huge pier which is great for the kids. The largest fish to date is 10 lbs. 4 oz.


Active cattle ranch, keep all gates closed that were closed and leave all gates open that were open.

MANDATORY!!! Remove all bass 14" and under at this site. Report the total number of each species removed, back to the club office through the online reservation system after your outing
