Texas – Once owned by legendary cattleman Charles Goodnight, known as the “father of the Texas Panhandle,” the Bitter Creek Ranch is almost 36,000 contiguous acres that was once the Mare Pasture of the famed JA Ranch. The JA Ranch in Palo Duro Canyon was the Panhandle’s first ranch and could have been used for a variety of income producing uses, but the new buyer plans to continue it as a large cattle operation. Located on Highway 70 in Donley and Hall counties, Bitter Creek is well known for its hunting with extensive quail, dove, turkey, whitetail and mule and excellent fishing can be found in the ranch’s two stocked ponds. The extensive improvements include several homes, hunting lodges and camps.
