W.T. Waggoner Ranch SoldW.T. Waggoner Estate Ranch Sold after being offered for $725M

You may have heard by now that the sale of one of the largest ranches in the United States has now been announced. After being marketed nationally and internationally for several months, we are proud to announce that Stan Kroenke has purchased the famous ranch. With over 500,000 acres of land, thousands of head of cattle, hundreds of horses, numerous oil wells, large lakes and scenic rivers, this may well be the sale of the century.

..

..

This marks the end of one era and the beginning of a new one. A new chapter in the famed ranch’s history is now being written.

The Waggoner Ranch is nearly as old as the state of Texas. Texas became the 28th state on December 29, 1845, and when this ranch was first established in 1849, Abe Lincoln was in Congress, California was petitioning to join the U.S. as a free state, and neighboring Oklahoma was Indian Territory.

..

Almost eight hundred square miles of native pasture with flowing rivers and creeks, productive farmland, cattle, horses, oil and abundant wildlife

Almost eight hundred square miles of native pasture with flowing rivers and creeks, productive farmland, cattle, horses, oil and abundant wildlife

..

Stretching across six North Texas counties, the ranch is reported to be the largest contiguous ranching operation of its kind under one fence in Texas, and one of the largest in the United States. This is a diverse operation consisting of cattle, horses, farming, oil, recreational lakes and wildlife. It may be hard to truly comprehend the sheer vastness of the Waggoner Ranch. In total, the ranch spans nearly 800 square miles. This sprawling property is approximately three-fourths the size of Rhode Island. Need a size comparison?

..

..

According to Bloomberg News, The asking price was approximately four times greater than the biggest publicly known sum fetched by a U.S. ranch, $175 million for a Colorado spread in 2007.

Northern New Mexico Mountain Ranch For Sale near Chama with Exceptional Elk Hunting and Game Park

We are proud to announce a major price reduction on this beautiful Northern New Mexico mountain ranch. The Quinlan Ranch is now offered for sale at a very realistic $37,000,000. This 16,716.52 acre mountain paradise offers exceptional elk hunting, deer hunting and trout fishing. The seller owns 100% of the mineral rights, which will convey with the sale. In today’s real estate market, with minerals often times being so valuable, it is extremely seldom a ranch is ever offered for sale with 100% of the minerals available.

The property is positioned along a major migration route for elk and mule deer heading out of the Colorado high-country toward wintering grounds in Northern New Mexico. This area serves as a wildlife haven for animals moving away from public hunting pressure in Colorado towards more desirable winter climate and large deeded ranches.

Elevations on the ranch are approximately 7,800 feet along the highway, with the property elevating to approximately 9,800 feet near the northwest side of the ranch at Chromo Peak. The northern boundary of the ranch is less than one-half mile from the Colorado State Line, and much of the western boundary of the property follows along America’s Continental Divide.

The Quinlan Ranch has been under only two ownerships since 1912, when the property was purchased and operated by Ed Sargent, and later his heirs, the Quinlan Family.

Rio Grande TurkeyEast 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.”

A nice pair of pointers - on point!Texas Quail Hunting Land For Sale

Very unexpectedly it appears that the 2015-2016 quail hunting season may be one for the record books! Outstanding habitat recovery from several years of drought has really bumped quail numbers. Pastures that were void of beneficial turf a few years ago are now lush with native grasses and forbs, and stock tanks are full and running over throughout much of the state – and best of all – the return of the familiar bob-white whistle. Springs that haven’t run in several years now bubble with crystal clear water again. Ranchers that spent the past years cleaning out stock tanks have been rewarded by seeing them filled to the spillway!

Many avid quail hunters are back in the saddle of their pickup trucks toting trusty 20 gauge shotguns and dog kennels with anxious pointers. The effects of the drought were felt far and wide, with much of Texas’ famed Quail Alley having been void of quail hunting for the past several years. Those hunters and their dogs are back in action now. Many thought they’d never see the return of the quail, at least in huntable numbers. Viva El Niño! Viva the bobwhite!
