The W.T. Waggoner Estate Ranch is one of the largest contiguous ranching units in the United States. It has been owned by the same family since 1849 and is a diverse ranching operation running thousands of cattle, almost 30,000 acres of farmland, substantial oil operation, nationally known horse program and recreation opportunities from wildlife and large lakes.

The W. T. Waggoner Estate Ranch spans six counties of North Texas and is located south of Vernon, the county seat of Wilbarger County, Texas.

This historic property has been under the same family ownership since 1849, and is now officially, for the first time ever, offered for sale.

The terrain of the ranch varies from fairly level to rolling and sometimes broken. Several major creeks run through the ranch. Approximately 30,000 acres are currently in cultivation, and many thousands of additional acres are suitable to be farmed, if desired. Mesquite is the principal invader in this part of Texas. Much brush work has been done, and the mesquite canopy is nearly extinct to moderate on portions of the ranch, while other areas have substantial regrowth. Hackberry and soapberry trees are common in the creek bottoms and cedar is predominately found in the rougher broken areas of the ranch.

The ranch is principally watered by live creeks and large earthen ponds. Several huge lakes are located on the ranch. These lakes typically cover from over 1,000 surface acres to as much as 16,000 surface acres each. Ground water is very hard to locate.

The Waggoner Ranch is accessed by paved highways, graded county roads and an extensive network of private ranch roads.

Throughout the 165 year ownership, no commercial hunting has ever been allowed. The ranch supports good populations of deer, turkey, quail, dove, water fowl and feral hogs. The large wheat fields and food plots are a magnet for the wildlife.

The Waggoner Ranch is considered to be very well improved. Two major sets of improvements are used by owners of the ranch and there are approximately 20 cowboy camps scattered throughout the property. The ranch has many large livestock working and shipping facilities, and all improvements have been well maintained.

There are over 1,000 producing oil wells on the Waggoner Estate Ranch. Approximately 41.67% of the entire mineral estate will convey with the property.

This iconic offering covers nearly 800 square miles of Texas Real Estate. The ranch is entrenched with history and offerings of this magnitude seldom come along. Included in the sale are all permanent improvements, rolling stock, ranch equipment, oilfield equipment, cattle inventory, horse inventory, horse facilities and the Waggoner Office Building in Vernon.

Addressing the Eyeworm Threat in Bobwhite Quail

Research conducted by the Rolling Plains Quail Research Foundation, the Wildlife Toxicology Laboratory at Texas Tech University, and Texas A&M University – Kingsville since 2011 revealed high levels of infection in Texas bobwhites by an eyeworm (Oxyspirura petrowii).. In this video, Dr. Ron Kendall describes the life cycle of this parasite, why high infection rates can be problematic to quail, and the search for a medicated feed to reduce parasite infections in bobwhites.Funding for this research was provided by RPQRF, Park Cities Quail, Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Service’s Reversing the Decline of Quail Initiative. For more information about this and other projects see the RPQRF’s website at quailresearch.org.

Gov. Martinez signs bill into law restricting NM stream access


By Dan Boyd / Capitol Bureau Chief
PUBLISHED: Friday, April 3, 2015 at 1:03 pm


Gov. Susana Martinez has signed into law a measure aimed at strengthening current state regulations restricting the ability of anglers to fish and wade New Mexico waters on private property.

The bill was prompted a non-binding 2014 opinion by then-Attorney General Gary King that state law did not prohibit such public access to streams running through private land.

It narrowly passed the House — via a 32-31 vote — on the next-to-last day of this year’s 60-day legislative session, which ended March 21. It had passed the Senate by a big margin earlier that same day.

Opponents claimed the measure, Senate Bill 226, would limit public access to beloved fishing spots, but backers said it would merely protect private property rights and would not necessarily restrict access.

Specifically, the bill says recreational users can’t walk or wade onto private property through “non-navigable public water” without written permission.

My colleague Deborah Baker wrote about the legislation earlier this week. You can find her story here.

Martinez did not provide an explanation of her decision to sign the bill in her executive message today to top-ranking senators.

Meanwhile, the Republican governor also signed 13 other bills into law today, including several measures dealing with hunting and fishing.

Martinez has now signed 37 bills into law from this year’s session and vetoed one —  a bill dealing with drug testing for racehorses. The governor has until April 10 to act on legislation passed during the session’s final days.

Riddel Ranch-1


The Riddel Ranch is in Stonewall County, TX and is comprised of approximately 10,295 acres. The ranch is located near Aspermont and has several miles of highway frontage, as well as access by several county roads. The ranch is an excellent combination of native pasture and cultivated fields, with live water in two creeks and numerous large ponds and dirt tanks. The ranch is considered to have excellent cover for wildlife. The southern portion of the property is generally level and slightly sloping with a moderate to dense canopy of mesquite. As you transition north, cedar becomes more prevalent and the terrain becomes more broken. Rock Creek heads on the ranch and flows in a northeasterly direction through approximately two miles of the ranch. Another live creek flows through the northern portion of the property for approximately two miles.

The ranch is in fantastic condition with a tremendous grass turf. Many of the large earthen tanks have been cleaned out in recent years and hold water well.

The Riddel Ranch is a fantastic offering and would be very suitable for subdivision. The highway frontage and county road access makes for a very desirable property for an investor.
