East Division of Boone Pickens’ Mesa Vista Ranch
16,013 Acres Price: $20,016,250
The Mesa Vista Ranch is located along the Canadian River, north of Pampa, Texas. The Texas Panhandle climate combined with the outstanding quail habitat first attracted Boone to this area of Texas. The East Division of the Pickens’ Mesa Vista Ranch fronts the Canadian River, or has river bottom country along the river for a distance of approximately 10 miles. Indian Creek flows through a portion of the ranch for several miles, then drains into the Canadian on the property. This creek is supplemented by live springs and several large, deep natural fishing holes. Cottonwoods are common along the creek and its tributaries. Several years ago, Mr. Pickens dredged a man-made creek which basically parallels the Canadian River. This creek flows a distance of 2.5 – 3 miles through the East Division of the property and is located in the Canadian River bottom. The creek first flows into two shallow duck/goose ponds, one containing approximately 15 surface acres and the other approximately 20 surface acres. These ponds have perfect tall grass vegetation for water fowl habitat. The creek then continues on, ultimately flowing into a large man-made fishing lake, which contains approximately 20 surface acres. Both the creek and the lake have been stocked with bass.
Throughout Mr. Pickens’ ownership, he has continued to enhance the productivity of the Mesa Vista Ranch, with the primary focus being quail habitat improvement; however, these improvements have been beneficial for all wildlife. Quail feeders are found all over the ranch and waterlines have been run through portions of the property to numerous, protected, quail watering holes. Even during droughts, native quail have access to grain in the feeders and water along the waterline network. As needed, grain is scattered along roadways to supplement the quail. A few food plots are located on the ranch. These cultivated areas are typically planted to wheat and serve as a magnet for deer.
Besides offering outstanding quail hunting, the ranch offers great dove hunting and has an outstanding white tail deer population, impressive mule deer, an abundance of turkey, a few antelope, feral hogs, aoudad and exceptional migratory water fowl. The sportsman will enjoy the bass fishing available in the stocked lake and in Boone’s Creek.
As testament to Boone’s love for the land and passion to benefit quail habitat and numbers, Boone was awarded the prestigious Park Cities Quail Unlimited “Lifetime Sportsman Award.” Their press release stated, “Park Cities Quail Unlimited honored legendary oil entrepreneur, conservationist, and avid sportsman T. Boone Pickens on March 6th as its 2008 Lifetime Sportsman Award winner before 900 guests in the Frontiers of Flight Museum near Dallas Love Field Airport.” The release went on to state, “The local chapter, founded in 2005 to develop, preserve, restore and maintain upland game habitat throughout this region and to improve hunting opportunities for area sportsmen, lauds Mr. Pickens’ lifelong love of the outdoors, respect for natural resources, and his extraordinary contributions to restoring quail habitat in Roberts County.”
