Turner Lake is a 17- acre spring fed bass fishing lake that is stocked with bass, catfish and other small game fish. It is not a surprise when fish are caught in the 10Lb range from its waters. The area receives an average yearly rainfall of 49-54 inches and sits on an aquafer that produces excellent water wells. Scattered throughout the farm are 2 additional ponds a that provide water for the rich wildlife populations and cattle. There is also a creek on the northwest tract that flows into a beaver pond and slough. Several of the ponds provide great fishing for largemouth bass. There is also the possibility to build additional ponds or lakes on the property.
The farm is rich in wildlife including Whitetail deer, wild hogs, ducks, and other wild game. The pasture grasses provide excellent food sources for the deer while the timber breaks provide safe bedding areas. During the winter ducks migrate into east Texas and use Turner Lake very heavily. Duck hunting is also very good on the beaver pond and slough. Wild hogs also frequent the timber breaks and will feed in the pastures at times. Dove hunting is also very good on the ranch.
