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.
