871.73 Deeded Acre Sumpter Johnson Mesa Ranch For Sale in Colxax County, New Mexico

Location: The Sumpter Ranch is well located on Johnson Mesa, approximately 20 highway miles east of Raton, New Mexico.

Acres: 871.73 Deeded Acres

Terrain: Johnson Mesa is widely known as one of the most productive ranching areas of the state, and additionally offers panoramic 360 degree scenic views with the added benefit of wildlife/hunting.

Johnson Mesa is a well-defined, prominent mesa plateau located east of Raton, New Mexico and just west of the small community of Folsom, New Mexico. This elevated

mesa plateau extends in a westerly to easterly direction approximately 20 miles and is generally 4-6 miles wide from north to south. Elevations on the open plains country at the foot of Johnson Mesa generally range from 6,500 – 7,000 feet. Elevations on top of Johnson Mesa range from 8,000 – 8,700 feet. This dramatic increase in elevation on the mesa provides a top-of-the-world view of the surrounding country side, overlooking the lower plains country below. From the mesa edge on the Sumpter Ranch, one can view Capulin Peak and Sierra Grande in the far distance. Johnson Mesa is characterized as a lava-topped tableland created from past volcanic eruptions.

Several volcanic cones, such as Red Mountain, Towndrow Peak and Dale Mountain rise approximately 400 feet above the surrounding mesa upland areas.

Elevations over much of the Sumpter Ranch range from 8,000 – 8,150 feet; however, a major drainageway, known as Uña de Gato enters the property near the northwest corner and meanders through the north-half of the ranch in a southeasterly direction. Intermittent holes of creek water are found along Uña de Gato.

This creek is very accessible throughout the north-half of the property. The creek has rocky side slopes and a sprinkling of brush cover in this area of the ranch. On the far eastern edge of the property, the creek transitions into a significant, very deep and rugged canyon, with sheer fractured rock ledges creating a natural operational boundary for the eastern portion of the ranch. This steep canyon escarpment area does not follow the true ownership boundary, with a small portion of the ranch being in the bottom of the canyon, and an estimated 20 or more acres of the neighbor’s country being on top of the elevated mesa uplands. In other words, from an operational standpoint, it appears that the Sumpter Ranch gains an additional 20 acres or so of neighboring land that cannot be accessed by the landowner to the east.

Oak motts, mountain mahogany and locust trees are found on rocky hillsides and side slope areas of the ranch. Large ponderosa pine, spruce and fir are found in dense concentrations in the rugged canyon areas.

Soils are deep and fertile on the level portions of the property and become very rocky on the side slopes and hilly areas. Rock outcroppings are generally described as volcanic malpai/lava rocks,

which give the soil and grass tremendous strength and fertility. The ranch has a lush cover of high elevation grasses, being grama, fescue, western wheatgrass and bluestem. Native grass vegetation

on Johnson Mesa is widely recognized as some of the best the state has to offer, and summer gains often exceed 300 pounds for the season (middle of May through October 1st – 15th) for yearling cattle.

While much of the Sumpter Ranch has an open appearance, pockets of brush and scattered trees offer favorable habitat for mule deer, elk, pronghorn antelope, turkey and black bear. Additionally, the heavily timbered Uña de Gato Canyon area adjoining the property on the east provides exceptional cover and habitat for mule deer and elk. In the early mornings and late afternoons, it is very common for wildlife to leave the protected canyon cover in order to graze on the productive Johnson Mesa pasture lands. Historically, the focus of the property has been seasonal grazing of yearling type cattle, but good hunting opportunities exist on the property.

Because of the high altitude, summers have very pleasurable moderate temperatures, and winters can be harsh. At times, the highway extending through Johnson Mesa will be closed during the winter months because of excessive snow. This snow, however, jump starts the country as temperatures warm in the summer, and native grass vegetation normally excels during the growing season, offering tremendous grazing opportunities from May – October. Typically, Johnson Mesa receives 19 – 20 inches of moisture during the year.

Water: The Sumpter Ranch is well watered with pockets of natural water along Uña de Gato, numerous earthen ponds, an electric submersible well located at the old ranch headquarters, and an electric solar well, which is located about mid-way into the ranch. An old set of ranch headquarter improvements are located on the property, but these structures have not been occupied in many years.

Access: Access to the property is provided by paved highway.

Price: The Sumpter Ranch is offered for sale at $1,400 per acre. One-half of the seller’s mineral interest will convey with the property. Property taxes are extremely reasonable, being approximately $420 per year.

The Sumpter Ranch is located in an area (Johnson Mesa) where ranch properties are typically passed down from generation to generation, and a property such as the Sumpter is seldom offered for sale.

We view this offering as a rare opportunity to purchase some of the most productive ranch country in Northeastern New Mexico. Please consider this outstanding offering.

Adams Ranch

Third Generation Texas Ranch For Sale in Terrell & Val Verde Counties

Location: The Adams Ranch is located approximately 34 miles south of Sheffield in the big deer country of Terrell and Val Verde Counties, Texas. This is a transitional area between the Edwards Plateau and Trans Pecos, widely recognized as some of the best and most challenging hunting in the state.

Acres: 22,375.6 Acres

Terrain: The terrain is somewhat varied, mainly consisting of gently rolling uplands sloping to two main draws that run through the ranch. Big Fielder Draw is located on the northern portion of the ranch and Osman Draw runs through the central portion of the property. The western portion of the property slopes west towards a major canyon located west of the ranch. Elevations on the property are typically around 2,000 to 2,100 feet.

Limestone rock outcroppings are common and soils are generally rocky. Of interest, a large cave or sinkhole is located on the western portion of the property that is reported to be very deep. Grass turf is considered to be in good condition and cover is diverse, with many varieties of native brush common to this area, including mesquite, cedar and greasewood being prevelant. Other varieties of brush and browse include sotol, cenezio, catclaw, blackbrush, desert willow, ocotillo, lotebush, and some scattered oak.

Water: The ranch is considered to be well watered. An electric water well is located at the ranch headquarters. This well supplies water to a large poly storage and several drinkers around the old headquarters area and traps. Three solar water wells supply water to various portions of the ranch, and all are equipped with water storage reservoirs. Two of the solar wells supply water to drinkers by several miles of waterline. Additionally, one operating windmill is located in the southern portion of the property. This mill also furnishes a large storage reservoir and supplies water to drinkers by waterline. Wells, waterlines and drinkers appear to be in good working condition and most of the waterline is buried.

Improvements: The Adams Ranch has typically been operated as a cow/calf operation. The property is fenced into eleven pastures with two traps.

The ranch headquarters discussed earlier consists of an older home utilized through the hunting season by hunters. A few old lean-to’s and sheds still exist, but overall, there are no usable structural improvements on the property.

Access: The Adams Ranch is considered to be fairly remote, with access being provided by maintained county roads. This area is sparsely populated and offers unmatched panoramic views for miles and miles. The small ranching community of Dryden is located approximately 15 miles west and Pumpville is about 11 miles south of the ranch.

Two maintained county roads, Pumpville Road and Fielder Draw Road, run through the ranch from Highway 349. These county roads run all the way through the ranch and lead to Pumpville and Pandale. Additionally, a well improved private road has recently been constructed along the southern boundary of the ranch for over six miles. A new fence that serves the Adams Ranch was installed along this road. This road was built to serve a rural subdivision which is located west of the Adams Ranch. The Adams Ranch has access on this adjoining road and there are gates into the property that can be locked. This private road and the county roads give year round access through the property and make getting across the ranch very easy.

Hunting/Recreation: Whitetail deer flourish in this region of Texas and this area is known to produce true trophy bucks. Bobwhite and blue quail are also very common, as are javelina and occasionally feral hogs and turkey. Dove hunting in this area is generally very good. Terrell County and the northern zone in Val Verde County both allow the harvest of two whitetail bucks. Both counties also offer a mule deer season, and mule deer are known to be in the area.

Remarks: There are several rural subdivisions in the general area of the Adams Ranch. This property has a lot to offer a cowman, sportsman, recreation buyer, developer or investor.

Price: Priced very realistically at only $325 per acre, and with annual property taxes of about $6,000 per year, it would be hard to find a more economical ranch with the added bonus of long term upside potential.

623.21 Acres Denton County Land For Sale

Located North of Denton Between I35 and 377

Location: The Reding Ranch is located in the northern outskirts of the City of Denton, in northern Denton County approximately 50 miles north of the Dallas Central Business District. The ranch is also centrally located to Hwy. 380 (7 miles), Dallas North Tollway (20 miles) and Interstate 35 (3.5 miles).

Acres: 623.21 Acres

Terrain: The property is gently rolling with a seasonal creek running generally north to south through the middle of the tract. The creek is lined with large Bodark trees. The property has an open appearance, with only a sparse amount of mesquite. Rolling hills give the property great elevation change and views for 20 plus miles in any direction.

Water: The ranch is considered to be well watered with 10 earthen ponds scattered through the property along with a co-op waterline (municipal quality water) running along the west side of the ranch. There are currently three taps available on this line. There are also scattered water wells in the vicinity.

Access: Access is available via a paved two lane highway, FM 2164, with considerable frontage on the west side of the ranch. The property has approximately 5,000 linear feet of frontage on FM 2164. The ranch is located four miles north of Loop 288 and two miles south of FM 455.

Improvements: The Reding Ranch is modestly improved with an older single family residence, storage sheds, barns, stock pens and pipe corrals. The house is approximately 2,500 square feet with three bedrooms and two baths. The house has not been lived in for five plus years so it needs some TLC.

Hunting/Recreation: Bird hunting is good and the numerous ponds provide excellent water fowl habitat. All ponds have been stocked for many years with the fishing reportedly being very good.

Price: $9,000 per acre

Remarks: This very well located property is currently zoned “RD-5”, Rural Residential District. The property is zoned for rural residential uses but is currently operated as a cow/calf ranching operation. This prime location offers tremendous development potential. Pastures have been well maintained with the elimination of mesquite and protecting the native grass with a very conservative stocking rate. Portions of the property are typically over seeded to wheat for additional seasonal grazing. The elevation changes, views and clean pastures make this a horse lover’s dream. The Redding Ranch is surrounded by highly improved horse properties and is only a few miles south of Lake Ray Roberts. It is not often that a property of this size with this many options and close proximity to the Dallas-Ft. Worth growth corridor comes on the market in this desirable area.

Acres: 2,019 Acres

Terrain: Terrain is gently rolling and hilly over much of the property with a fairly large mesa on the northwestern portion of the ranch. Some hills and side slopes run through the property in the eastern, central and northern portions.

Water: The ranch is watered by several dirt tanks as well as a windmill. Electricity is available on the county road that fronts the property as well.

Both bobwhite and blue quail species are present on the Scharlach Ranch, and on my inspection of the property in July over 100 coveys of quail were viewed or flushed on the ranch. It is my personal opinion that Mitchell County produces more quail year in and year out than any other area in the Rolling Plains of Texas.

Whitetail deer numbers are good in this area and turkey are very common. Migratory bird hunting in this area is also known to be exceptional.

A foodplot containing approximately 8 acres is located in the eastern portion of the property, and another field of approximately 12 acres is located on the northern portion of the property. These fields are generally planted to wheat or other grains and are a magnet to wildlife. Other areas of the property would be suitable for cultivated fields as well.

New Mexico Mountain Property For Sale in Rio Arriba County

Location: The entrance to Hutch Curve is approximately 16 miles east of Tierra Amarilla on Highway 64.

Acres: 77.73 Deeded pristine mountain top acres

Terrain: Terrain varies from beautiful rolling open parks and meadows to moderately steep dense conifer forests to rolling solitary and mixed aspen stands. Primary grass forage is mountain brome, some timothy, native bluestem, and strawberry clover. In early summer, there are seas of wildflowers including wild blue iris, mountain columbine, daisies, yellow rose bushes, and sunflowers. Fall color views on the Hutch Curve are stunning, with Aspen gold’s and fire red colors dotting the gorgeous landscape below.

This property features quaking Aspen, Blue Spruce, and Douglas Fir.

Water: A deep spring fed trout lake is located on the western portion of the property.

Access: Paved highway frontage along HWY 64

Hunting/Recreation: Big game crossing the Hutch Curve from time to time consists of elk, mule deer, bear, and cougar, Merriam turkey and blue grouse. The ranch is currently enrolled in New Mexico’s E-Plus landowner elk system via the Small Contributing Ranch portion of the system.

Remarks: The name “Hutch Curve” is derived from its parent ranch that is still commonly known as the “Hutch”. Long ago, the owners surveyed their larger parcel into 4 separate tracts. This parcel makes up one of the parcels along US Highway 64 at the top of the ridge where the large teardrop curve takes place. Clearly the tract fits the name well. This parcel adjoins the larger portion of the Hutch, the High Timber Ranch, and the Hutch East tract.

We know of no other smaller parcels offered with the amenities of the Hutch Curve. Elevation lies at 10,500 feet. Again, we know of no other small parcels of real estate in New Mexico at this type of elevation where one can reach up and touch the stars at night and have the views of the lower aspen timber colors experience in the fall. Topping this off is the almost unheard of amenity of a spring fed lake where trout can live through a harsh New Mexico winter.

The Hutch Curve is a must have for an owner desiring a true mountain sanctuary to escape the hustle and bustle of crowded cities. Photos in this brochure do not give this ranch justice. An onsite visit to this unique property is required to fully appreciate this rare, one of a kind opportunity.

Price: This rare offering is priced to sell on today’s rising market at $4,000 per acre.

White Lake Ranch  77,111± Total Acres

Location: The White Lake Ranch is located northeast of Roswell, New Mexico.

Acres: 77,111± Total Acres (69,314± Deeded Acres)

4,477± NM State Lease Acres, 960± BLM Acres, 2,360± Uncontrolled/Free Use Acres

Terrain: The terrain is described as gently rolling hills and side slopes draining to several draws and low lying flat bottom lands. Elevations are approximately 3,900 feet in the flats, elevating to over 4,000 feet on the upland country. An elevated ridgeline, known as Railroad Mountain runs through the northern portion of the ranch in a west to east direction. This unusual geological feature has the appearance of an elevated railroad bed with substantial rock outcroppings throughout the side slopes of this elevated formation.

The White Lake Ranch supports a good mixture of native grasses, which are plentiful in the low-lying flats and more sparse throughout the elevated portions of the ranch. Low bush mesquite is common over much of the property and shin oak is found in the sandier areas of the property.

Water: Numerous large natural lakes and man-made earthen ponds are found throughout the ranch. Many of these ponds are considered generally dependable, as they receive substantial runoff from the higher elevations of the ranch. Additionally, there are several water wells developed on the property, along with pipelines and livestock drinkers. The two main water wells were recently tested for volume and both produced approximately 12-15 gallons per minute each.

Improvements: The ranch is fenced and cross fenced into approximately 10 pastures and much of the fencing is fairly new and in good overall condition. The ranch is also improved by several large sets of livestock pens, outbuildings and a small help house.

Hunting/Recreation: Under the current operation the ranch is running a cow/calf operation, but there are a lot of quail on the property, with antelope being common in the open plains country and mule deer in the sandier hilly country. Some additional supplemental income can be derived from hunting.

Remarks: No minerals are offered with the White Lake Ranch and old scattered oil production is located on portions of the property; however, this production has been phased out and there is little to no oil field activity on the property at this time. This area of New Mexico is located in a semi-arid climate with the average rainfall being approximately 12 inches. The growing season averages around 208 days.

Price: There is nothing fancy or scenic about the White Lake Ranch, but the property is extremely realistically priced at $200 per deeded acre, with the leases being assigned and transferred to the purchaser. As brokers, we are not aware of any other ranch available at this price in New Mexico. At this price, you will look long and hard to find a ranch that will compare to the White Lake Ranch.

Barrel & Indian Creek Ranch

Scenic Palo Duro Canyon Texas Panhandle Ranch For Sale Exceptional Cattle Ranching, Hunting & Recreation

Location: The Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch is located approximately 65 linear miles southeast of Amarillo, Texas, and 8 linear miles east of Silverton, Texas. The property contains over 50 square miles and offers some of the most stunning views of the scenic Palo Duro Canyon from all parts of the property.

Acres: 32,041.57 Acres

Terrain: The Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch is situated primarily within the Palo Duro Canyon. As the second-largest canyon system in the United States, the Palo Duro Canyon is roughly 120 miles long and has an average width of 6 miles, but reaches widths of 20 miles at places.

Due to the nature of the canyon, the Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch offers an extremely diverse topography which may actually be the most rugged topography of any large ranch property in the State of Texas. Beginning on the south end of the ranch, approximately 10% of the property is described as fairly level upland plains country, which dramatically descends to steep jagged canyon walls, rolling and hilly transitional country, and finally productive creek bottom country as the ranch nears the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River along the north boundary of the property.

From the elevated uplands on the south portion of the property overwhelming panoramic views showcase the Palo Duro Canyon and the winding creek bottoms of Barrel and Indian Creeks.

Elevation change on the Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch is a spectacular 1,000 feet. The upper plains country has an elevation slightly above 3,200 feet. Along the canyon floor near the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River, the elevation falls to approximately, 2,200 feet.

The ranch contains a good variety of native grasses along with desirable browse for wildlife. The native grass turf is in excellent condition over much of the ranch due to timely moisture this spring and a conservative stocking rate. Buffalograss and various grama grasses are found on the plains above the Caprock escarpment and on the flat, mid-level divides. The bottomland along Barrel and Indian Creeks supports tall and mid-level grasses, which include Indiangrass, Canada wild-rye, little bluestem and alkali sacaton. The canyon breaks have a scattered to sometimes dense canopy of juniper and mesquite, with wild plum thickets, cottonwood and hackberry trees being found along the bottom country.

A 4-year old, Reinke brand pivot sprinkler system is used to irrigate about 125 acres just north of the headquarters. Irrigation water to the pivot is provided by two wells with a total pumping capacity reported to be around 1,000 gallons per minute.

With over 3,000 acres of the ranch being located on the productive upland plains, additional land is suitable for cultivation and the irrigated portion of the property could be expanded to enhance the overall carrying capacity of the ranch.

The ranch has historically been utilized as a year round cow/calf operation with typical stocking rates of 500-600 cows, depending upon weather conditions and patterns. The ranch could also be utilized for seasonal grazing of yearlings.

Water: This property is considered to be very well watered. The ranch is primarily watered by several windmills and six wells equipped with electric submersible pumps. Well water cannot be located in some areas of the rugged canyon country. For this reason, an extensive waterline network with water storage reservoirs has been constructed. Some wells are located below the Caprock, but the majority of the water source comes from quality Ogallala water located on the upland plains. This quality and dependable water source supplies approximately 40 miles of buried waterlines used to transport well water to drinking troughs placed over many areas of the ranch. In addition to the water wells and waterlines, several dirt tanks have been constructed in places and several natural playa lake areas are found on the upland plains country.

Barrel and Indian Creeks meander in a north, north easterly direction through the ranch, eventually draining into the Praire Dog Town Fork of the Red River. Live water and/or water holes are common throughout the creeks. Several other seasonal creeks and springs are scattered around the ranch. Overall, the property is considered to be well watered.

Improvements: The ranch is improved by a nice headquarters located on the upland plains near the southern-most boundary. The headquarters house is a comfortable completely remodeled three bedroom, two bathroom home with attached garage. Other headquarter improvements include two large metal shops/barns and the main shipping pens, which are of pipe and sucker rod construction with a covered hydraulic squeeze chute and livestock scales. A 180′ x 400′ roping arena is located just off the main shipping pens. Several other good sets of working pens are located throughout the ranch.

Two additional houses are located near the rim, overlooking some of the most scenic portions of the Palo Duro Canyon. An older, completely remodeled three bedroom, two bath home and a nearly new two bedroom, two bath owner’s residence/lodge with a porch and attached two car garage offer comfortable housing for 10-12 people, if needed.

The Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch is fenced and cross fenced into approximately 14 pastures and traps. Overall, the fences are in fair to good condition. In some places, due to the rugged topography, canyon walls and rim rocks serve as natural boundaries and pasture divisions of the ranch.

The ranch has an extensive and well maintained network of ranch roads that transverse most all portions of the property. The current owner has taken great care to keep all roads in good operating condition in order to provide access to different parts of the ranch for both humans and livestock. The ranch also has a large on-site caliche pit that furnishes quality road material for major ranch roads throughout the property.

Access: Access to the property is provided by State Highway 256, which runs along the ranch’s southern boundary.

Hunting/Recreation: The wildlife features on the Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch are excellent and hunting in the area is known to be outstanding. Both mule deer and whitetail deer thrive in this area, as do aoudad sheep. Quail, turkey and bobcat are also very common. The ranch is enrolled in the MLDP (Managed Lands Deer Program) through the Texas Parks and Wildlife. Through this program, the ranch is able to hunt deer earlier and later than the general season, extending through the rut.

While demand for commercial hunting is substantial, during the current 40 year ownership no commercial hunting has been allowed. The only hunting on the ranch has been the owner’s family and close friends.

Remarks: The Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch represents one of the most scenic properties in the Texas Panhandle. The famous Palo Duro Canyon State Park is located up the canyon, northwest of the Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch. In our opinion, the Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch is actually more diverse and more scenic than the state park. To our knowledge, no other privately owned property in the canyon system compares to the Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch from the standpoint of diversity and scenic views. The existing road network and waterline network are a major plus for the property, and everything appears to be in good operable condition. This ranch has been well maintained and ready for the new owner to enjoy and operate.

Price:  This unique, long term ownership ranch is market priced at $750 per acre.

Very seldom does a ranch of this size and quality come on the market in this area of Texas. This offering includes 50% of the seller’s owned mineral rights, along with all wind generation rights. Currently, 5,869 acres, being primarily the upper plains country, are under an option agreement for the development of wind energy. This option agreement was entered into on Dec. 15, 2016 and is for a term of 5 years. The option payment is in the amount $17,606 per year.

If you are looking for a large, quality cattle, recreation/hunting ranch, the Barrel and Indian Creek Ranch deserves your immediate attention.

Texas Rolling Plains Commercial Hunting Ranch For Sale in Stonewall County

TPWD MLD, Great Genetics in Deer Herd, New High Game Fence

Location: The property is located just west of Aspermont and fronts Highway 380 on the north and FM 2211 on the south.

Acres: 4,851.03 Acres

Terrain: The terrain is varied and offers approximately 200′ of topographic relief. A high ridge runs north to south along much of the western portion of the property. Cover along this portion of the ranch is generally provided by a combination of mesquite and cedar, with the remainder of the ranch having a often dense canopy of mesquite. Soils consist of a mixture of clay and sandy loam. Overall, the ranch supports a good variety of native grasses along with abundant varieties of browse, and the turf is in good condition.

Approximately a dozen foodplots have been established on the ranch, which are generally planted to wheat for wildlife grazing. These foodplots range in size from about 2 acres to 6.5 acres. A large cultivated field containing approximately 100 acres is located on the northern portion of the ranch, and another large field of approximately 14.5 acres is located on the southern portion of the ranch.

Water: Over the previous several years, the owner has spent countless man-hours developing new dirt tanks and cleaning out many older dirt tanks to enhance surface water on the ranch. Several new dirt tanks have been constructed that are currently over 30′ in depth. One new dam has recently been completed that was constructed to take advantage of a nearby spring. This large tank is currently about 1/3rd full, and when full, should cover close to 30 acres and be over 20′ deep.

The recent dirt work on the network of roads and dirt tanks was engineered to take advantage of the terrain features available, and designed to last. Several ponds were constructed to catch silt and other debris, allowing the flow of the water to slow and flow over spillways into the larger reservoirs. The very impressive infrastructure has to be seen as photos do not do it justice.

City water is available, and has been installed on the ranch. Currently, the ranch has a tap on a city waterline that runs down FM 2211. There is another city waterline that follows Highway 380 on the north side of the ranch that could be utilized if desired. The access to city water is extremely beneficial to the property, as underground water is difficult to find in this area.

Improvements: Besides the enhancements made to the ranch to benefit the wildlife, the ranch has further been improved by a very nice, almost new modular home that is located on a bluff overlooking the scenic southern portion of the property. This home contains three bedrooms and two baths and is ready to enjoy. The home is currently furnished, however, many of the furnishings will be removed prior to closing. To ensure the comfort of the new owner, the seller has agreed to make a concession of $20,000 at closing for new furniture. Other improvements to the property include a set of pipe livestock pens located in the southeastern portion of the property near FM 2211.

Hunting/Recreation: In 2016 this division of the D&D Whitetails Ranch was stocked with whitetail deer that were delivered from 10X Buck Ranch. At that time, twenty-one bred does, twenty-three 2.5 yr. old bucks and eleven doe fawns were released on this division of the ranch. Invoices indicate that over $150,000 was spent on the deer herd. Copies of invoices, along with Deer Breeder Program Transfer Permits are available. (Over 1,000 trail camera photos available by request.)

Multiple protein and corn feeders are in place, as well as quality elevated hunting blinds. The ranch has not been hunted since the installation of the new fence and delivery of the deer. The ranch is enrolled in the MLD Program through the Texas Parks and Wildlife, and the current owner will continue to maintain the requirements stipulated until the property sells and a new ownership can take over.

There is a high fenced trap located in the northwestern portion of the property that contains approximately 200 acres. This trap would be well suited to holding deer or exotic game.

Waterfowl is plentiful throughout the winter in this area and migratory bird hunting is generally considered to be very good. The large dirt tanks are a magnet to ducks and dove, and most have been stocked with fish. This area of the state is widely known for offering exceptional quail hunting as well.

Remarks: The D&D Whitetails Ranch is a truly ready to operate and enjoy quality hunting ranch. This property is well suited to be utilized as a commercial hunting operation, a corporate hunting ranch, or an exceptional retreat for family and friends. With drive times from the DFW Metro area being around three hours, an international airport at Lubbock and a regional airport at Abilene, the location of this property lends itself to frequent utilization. Additionally, there is a county airport at Aspermont.

Price: Offered basically turn-key, the ranch is very realistically priced at $1,450 per acre. With approximately 12 miles of nearly new perimeter fencing, a new home, exceptional water features and a quality deer program in place, this may be the most realistically priced ranch on the market! If you are in the market for a quality recreation ranch in this part of Texas, the D&D Whitetails Ranch definitely deserves your attention.

No minerals are available, however, the ranch is for sale with no reservations being made for wind energy production.
