Located just an hour and forty-five minutes from downtown Ft. Worth, Hidden Lakeis one of the most unique land holdings to be found in west central Texas. Seven miles south of Exit 340 on I-20 and less than two and one half miles on a paved county road going east out of the tiny hamlet of Carbon, lies an 81.84 acre oasis, where the Cross Timbers ecoregion subtly begins to morph into the Rolling Plains. Eastland - 12 miles Lake Leon - 13.7 miles Weatherford - 77.5 miles Ft. Worth - 105 miles Dallas - 125 miles Water When full, there is a 43+/- acre lake that embodies half of the property. The lake is overtwenty feet deep at the dam. The dam is better than two thousand feet in length. Built in the 1940s and known as Buster Hanson Lake from the second World War until the current owner bought it in 2008, it was managed by professionals as a fishing club for trophy bass. The records kept on the lake since April of 2008 through 2012, tell the sory of just how productive a fishery Hidden Lake has been. Wildlife The bass fisherman will simply not find a private lake on an eighty acre property that produces trophy large mouth bass within a 125 mile drive, west of Dallas. The owner removed from 1000-1200 pounds of bass, 18 inches and under for four years to properly manage the fish habitat. He reports that taking that many fish out every year was every bit as difficult as culling deer under an MLD plan. The fruit of his labor resulted in a 3 1/2 lb average per fish! There have been numerous fish caught and released, over ten pounds. The lake record for the owner tipped the scales at a whopping 12 lb 12 oz, with the second largest weighing in at11 lb 4 oz. A look at the records shows that the preponderance of big fish were caught from 2008-2010. The drought bore down on the area in earnest from 2011-2013 and diminished both the number of large bass and the size of the lake. The excellent rains in June of 2015, refilled the lake to capacity and the fish are on the grow, once more. In addition to bass, the owner reports thousands of seasonal migratory waterfowl, primarily ducks. Also, there are whitetail deer, feral hogs and various species of varmints making the property home. Improvements There is a 720 square foot two bedroom, one bath cabin built in 2009, including an 8x30 covered porch affording an idyllic view of the lake through the post oak timber. There is well and septic on site. A storage shed sits beside the cabin. There is a pole barn facility just off of the driveway that provides covered boat storage, which is lighted and has electric receptacles for recharging marine batteries. The owner built an extensive concrete boat ramp and a fish cleaning station that provides running water and electricity at lakeside. There is a pier on the east side of the lake with walking access from the dam. The owner took advantage of the recent drought and excavated a six foot deep area of the lakes edge, just below the cabin, to provide an excellent swimming area on the lakes south side. Minerals Seller has no mineral estate ownership with this property. Summary An exhaustive search for comparable properties in an eight county surrounding area confirmed that Scout Lake Ranch is uniquely incomparable to all others. If you are searching for an unparalleled getaway on a small but incredibly productive property, when it comes to wildlife, especially bass habitat, this may just be your needle in the hay stack. A mere 125 miles from downtown Dallas puts Scout Lake Ranch in that sweet spot of drive time to be able to make the most of owning such an incredible place.

It is nestled on the eastern edge of the famed Arbuckle Mountain range in southern Oklahoma. The Arbuckle Range consists of approximately 535 square miles lying largely east west spanning from approximately 25 miles west of Interstate 35 to approximately 10 miles east of I-35.

With the topography changing from shear bluffs, towering ridges, gentle rolls to flat hay-meadows and potential landing strips, the Arbuckle Ranch has a little bit of everything. The property has approximately 360 feet of elevation change from 1,010 feet in the north to 650 feet above sea level on the south along Oil Creek, you have indescribable diversity. Water Arbuckle Ranch sits on the fringe of the Arbuckle Aquifer, which is estimated to consist 2.9 trillion gallons of water. The ranch receives approximately 37 inches of rainfall annually. The headwaters of several of the named creeks that the Arbuckles are famous for possessing, actually originate from springs associated with the aquifer. Oil Creek is one of those creeks. With over 7.3 miles of frontage (includes both shores), moving water through hard wood bottoms and emptying into the famed Washita River just off the southern ranch boundary. The beauty is complimented with exceptionally fertile soil that serves as an artery to the abundant wildlife population. Additionally, a recently constructed lake impounds more than 20 surface acres of water that has the makings of a first class Bass fishing lake and is a waterfowl magnet. Other lake sites have been identified by a highly acclaimed lake builder. Wildlife If you are a deer hunter, you would be extremely hard-pressed to find a property within two-hours of the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex that consistently produce world-class deer, in a free-range low fence environment. A 186 B&C deer was taken with a bow on the ranch and other 180 plus bucks have been taken over the last few years on other nearby properties including one over 200. It tells a story that these deer have everything they need, to have world-class antler potential. Nutrition, Shelter, Age, and genetics all play a part and are all here in spades. By any measurement, these deer get as big as any deer anywhere in the U.S. including the famed Mid-west states such as Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Nebraska, and Ohio.Oil Creek is known by those few locals that have access to the fishing to be among some of their favorite fishing holes. The existing owner has caught catfish weighing up to 40 pounds. Sand bass, Black-bass, Crappie, perch, and other sporting fish can also be found.

As the first signs of fall arrive, ducks and geese can be heard and seen migrating south for the winter. Any stock tank around that has any size to it will have various species of ducks resting. Likewise, large flocks of geese have been known to land on the new big lake which should make for a tremendous waterfowl hunting opportunity. A few coveys of bob-white quail can consistently be stirred, although the ranch would not handle lots of hunting pressure at this time. If you are into year round hunting for big-game, you will not be disappointed with the amount of hogs that inhabit the property. This resource is not getting any smaller and can be a rewarding hunting experience during the non-hunting season months. During the winter months, it is not uncommon to see a few Eagles residing on the property. Both Bald and Golden Eagles have been seen taking up residence. Improvements Other than a few old barns and live-stock shelters, there are no structures currently on the property. Electricity is present, and ground water is readily available for anyone wishing to build a hunters cabin, a weekend home, or a luxurious lodge on one of the towering ridges or along the banks of one of the future lakes. Oklahomans have long know what few Texas are just now discovering. The Arbuckle Mountains are located within an hour and a half of the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. Investors are beginning to re-consider the 3-5 hour drives to the Texas Hill Country where rocks and drought can be plentiful, and instead are beginning to look north into southern Oklahoma.

Soils primarily consist of various clay loams and are very productive. Taxes / Tax Year: $1,706 / 2014 Property Summary:Echo Valley Ranch is located north east of Coleman, TX where a town called Echo once stood. Coleman County was founded in 1858. Not long after, the route for the Western Cattle Trail began near San Antonio, TX and ended in Ogallala, Nebraska. At Coleman City, herds often trailed right through town, traveling along Colorado Street. North of Coleman, herds forded Jim Ned Creek before continuing north. It was on a cattle drive in the Spring of 1884 that an ambitious cowhand by the name of J.P. Morris accompanied several thousand steers. Morris always kept his eyes open for good grazing land and he wanted a well-watered place with strong soil that could grow grass in abundance. While waiting a couple days for the flood waters of Jim Ned Creek to recede, Morris set out on his horse to explore the area. On one of these trips, he first laid eyes on the lush grass and broad valley that would someday become his home. At the confluence of Indian and Jim Ned Creeks, his search for the perfect ranch that he so patiently waited, came to an end. The land had everything that he wanted in a ranch: broad, well-watered creek valleys filled with lush grasses, which would support year-round cattle grazing. Over the next 53 years until Morriss death in 1937, he compiled over 70,000 acres of land known as the Rafter 3 Ranchprior to dividing it between his children. To this day, Morris descendants still own portions of the original property. Echo Valley Ranch is one of those parcels. Priced at only $2,395/acre it is waiting for the next discriminating owner to step in and carry the rich history forward into a new era.

Location: 5 miles south of Benjamin, TX Water: 500+/- acre private lake; 10 miles of frontage on the Brazos River; & Over 2.2 miles of sloughs Perhaps the most amazing feature of Lago Grande River Ranch is the massive 500+/- (surveyed) acre lake that is known as Lake Davis to the locals within a several county radius. Wildlife: Lake Davis historically wintered tens of thousands of ducks and geese . You would be hard pressed to talk to a duck and goose guide within a hundred miles who does not know Lake Davis, and if he hasnt had the privilege of hunting close by, he has likely wished he could. It is unnerving to be near the lake in the early morning hours, when the sun is just beginning to rise, and hear the spectacular thunder that 100,000 wings make as they lift off the water and head to the many food sources that can be found within 10 miles in every direction. A local hunting guide, who has hunted the area for more than twenty years, says it is not uncommon on any given morning during the winter months to witness over 100,000 geese depart their Lake Davis roost. To the goose hunter, it is the epicenter of west Texas waterfowl. For the duck hunter, there is unbridled potential to create the finest wetland habitat in all of west Texas. With over 2.2 miles of sloughs , which are fed by the tail-waters of Lake Davis, a future owner could create a series of flooded marshes that would make what a well-respected wildlife consultant (who specializes in wetland habitat design and mitigation services) said could be the best he has ever seen . By just flipping an electric switch during the dryer months, water can be pumped directly out of Lake Davis, through a series of underground irrigation pipes, to flood newly planted fields of attractants such as: Barn Yard Grass, Millet, Smart Weed and other food sources at the exact times when the soil temperatures are ideal for the best chance of attaining higher yields of output. You cannot have a place called Lago Grande without talking about some big fish. A bass in excess of 14 lbs. has been retrieved from the deep waters of Lake Davis, and it is rumored that at one time, the lake was the scene of a state-record Crappie . Anyone who sees this majestic body of water would be hard pressed to think that it would not be possible for a record holder to come out of the deep clear water. Huge Catfish are also the norm and are legendary among the locals. With the southern border of this ranch meandering along approximately 10 miles of frontage on the Brazos River , this property is a wildlife Mecca. Trophy Whitetails find refuge in what one biologist termed as the ideal mix of cover, vegetative browse, and travel corridors. Although the ranch is in the infancy stage of a wildlife management program, it is not uncommon to see 160-170 class Boone & Crockett Whitetails with deer in the 180s harvested. Over 1,300 acres of dry-land wheat fields serve as an all-you-can-eat buffet for the different populations of species that are truly spoiled by this readily-available food source. Wild hogs are numerous and add a 365-day dimension for the avid hunter who likes to get out and chase game all year long. Healthy populations of Rio Grande Turkeys can be found throughout the entire ranch. There is nothing like being on the river in early April to hear the chorus of overzealous gobblers sounding off as dawn breaks in hopes of attracting the most hens to their side of the pasture. Healthy populations of Bob-White quail are also scattered throughout the majority of the ranch. Terrain and Natural Features: Currently, there are well over 1,300 acres of cultivated fields located within the boundaries of Lago Grande River Ranch. A local rancher has planted the main wheat field and is currently grazing the winter wheat crop. Other fields are used for wildlife food plots and are located along the river. Property Summary: Lago Grande River Ranch is truly the only one of its kind! Seldom does a property come up for sale that no matter who you are or where you have been in the world, you just have to stop and say: Wow! Now that is a special place! If you appreciate special places, are an avid outdoorsman or woman, enjoy hunting, fishing, and just being among Gods creations, it does not get any finer than this. Lago Grande River Ranch is truly THE ONLY ONE OF ITS KIND!!! Property may be divided into smaller tracts.

Location: Located in North Central Texas just north of Bowie, Texas, a mere 1 hours northwest of DFW. Water: Prairie Oaks Lake is a 35 acre lake built in 1969 by US Soil Conservation Service. The lake anchors the lower end of the ranch and is fed by Denton Creek. This lake has great fishing and can also be used for water sports such as jet skiing, tubing and sailing. The deepest part of the lake is currently around 15 feet. Most of the perimeter of the lake is lined with natural stone from the ranch. Two smaller lakes are perfect for swimming and fishing and can be filled from Prairie Oaks Lake via underground pipes. Both of these lakes are clear and have camping platforms for overnight stays. There are two creeks that cross the ranch one of which is Denton Creek. A dozen bridges, including a suspension bridge cross the numerous ravines and creeks. Three of the larger steel bridges were salvaged from the county and have been used to span some of the larger ravines. One of the creeks was partially dammed under one of the bridges to create a beautiful and soothing waterfall. There are numerous additional tanks throughout the ranch. Wildlife: While a portion of the ranch is highly improved and manicured, you can still take a walk on the wild side. Wildlife abounds on Prairie Oaks. White-tailed deer, Rio-Grande turkey, ducks, and of course coyotes, bobcats and the occasional mountain lion all inhabit the property in healthy numbers. You can find white tailed deer down by the lake and wild turkeys strolling around the grounds of the main house. Sitting on the veranda at night you can hear the coyotes howling under some of the brightest stars in the State. Prairie Oaks Ranch is the perfect property to build a perimeter high fence. Quality native white-tailed deer already inhabit the ranch but high fencing will allow the introduction of genetically improved deer as well as select exotics. If fishing is your thing, then you can wet your line in the 35-acre lake or either of the two smaller lakes for Florida Bass, crappie or catfish. Lakes are clear and well managed. A unique engineering feature ensures the lake won't silt over. Fishing piers are conveniently located so you can try your luck at matching the unofficial record for a 12lb largemouth bass. Improvements:Main House: Overlooking the lake is the beautiful 7,000 sq ft Texas Cape Cod style main house. The home is designed for small groups and as a family, corporate or church retreat. It includes a heated outdoor pool and an 8,800 sq ft covered deck that wraps around the house and along the pool to an outdoor fireplace made entirely of native stone. The ground floor and the second and third floor have bedrooms and a small meeting room. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. There is a command center room on the ground floor for all the computer and business center needs including high speed wireless internet and fax machines. The fourth floor is an "all windows" observation lookout for sunsets and stargazing. The interior is appropriately decorated in western style furniture and appointments and is uniquely eclectic. The kitchen has been completely remodeled and features state of the art appliances. The 20 acres immediately around the house and lake are designed for convenient recreational activities. Bunk House & Barns: There are two large barns, both metal buildings. The Bunkhouse Barn has a concrete floor and extensive storage, a small shop and power mechanics repair facility. It also houses three suites with full kitchenettes, showers and bunks. Most sports equipment like the ATV's, golf carts, Segways, sporting clay machines and boats are stored here. The smaller pole barn is used for tractors and mowers used to maintain the golf course. Golf Course: This is no homemade golf course. It was built over a period of two years and is in excellent condition. The owner utilizes industry proven management techniques as well as developing innovative techniques that have drawn the interest of several North Texas Golf Courses. Prairie Oaks is a precision course covering three distinct terrains. The play is designed to test experienced golfers & rookies alike. The front nine offers wider fairways and greens surrounded by bunkers. It is forgiving and provides sweeping views with dramatic changes in elevation. The 2nd & 9th fairway plays both ways. The greens average 8,000 square feet The back nine is more rigorous with numerous water hazards and menacing roughs. The course accommodates five foursomes with 13 greens, four being played "both ways". The total course spans 5,300yards. The longest hole is 443yards. It's a long, downhill, dog-leg ride ending with a green that perches on the edge of the lake. The hole is both beautiful and humbling. The course emphasizes conservation. Chemical fertilizers have been largely supplemented by organic amendments including compost tea that is produced in commercial quantity by a system that was designed and built on the ranch. Water is provided from surface runoff. Walking, Jogging, Hiking or Biking: The beauty of the ranch can be viewed along the over five miles of paved walking trails or seven miles of mowed hiking trails. You can view the ranch while hiking, biking, jogging, rollerblading or by hopping on your golf cart or all-terrain Segway! While enjoying any of the above activities, a variety of strategically placed, original and ingenious art pieces sit nestled in the woods along the many trails. While many inspire thought, some inspire serenity. You have to see them up close and personal to see what we mean. Truly inspiring, truly ingenious and all designed and built by the Ranch Manager. Camping: There are six outdoor camping platforms and one fishing cabin. Most have a 2nd story sleeping area to keep campers out of the coyotes way. Outdoor grills and picnic tables are located at each site. Several platforms overlook large ponds known for their outstanding fishing and seclusion. Security: While away, you can access the numerous, strategically placed surveillance cameras from your laptop or home computer. Anytime you want to escape, you can view the house, the lake and the golf course and numerous other locations on Prairie Oaks Ranch. Terrain and Natural Features: The upland prairies are filled with tall native grasses and in the spring, a wide variety of wildflowers. Native hardwoods are thick throughout the ranch and provide shade under its beautiful green leaved canopy during the summer and a spectacular show of red and yellow in the fall. And when snow arrives in the winter, the rolling terrain of the ranch and grounds around the main house and lake are incredible sights to behold! Prairie Oaks is a gently rolling property with over 75 feet of elevation changes. Views from strategic points are incredible. The entire 962.46+/- acres are perimeter fenced and crossed fenced into separate cattle pastures, each with its own water sources. A variety of native and improved grasses provide numerous cuttings for hay. Once over grazed, the past and current owners have restored native grasses to the pastures. Equipment: The equipment necessary to maintain the golf course is included in the sale price. Property Summary: Prairie Oaks Ranch is an incredibly unique, multi-faceted property. In fact it is so unique that words could never accurately describe all of its features it must be experienced! Located in North Central Texas just east of Bowie Texas, a mere 1 & l/2 hours northwest of DFW, Prairie Oaks Ranch has been lovingly and intelligently improved and developed , the result of which yields one of the most beautiful and diverse ranches in all of Texas. The ranch's main entrance was designed with ranch brands on the steel pipe gates and controlled numeric keypad entrance that allows automatic gate opening upon exit. The 1 1/2 mile drive to the Ranch House crosses two cattle guards and passes numerous ponds. The current uses for Prairie Oaks are numerous and incredibly diverse from raising WR Longhorn cattle, to fishing and hunting, to hosting family or corporate retreats, to enjoying a round of golf on your own private, precision golf course. That's right, your own private, 18-hole golf course!! And if being a short 1 & l/2 hour drive from the DFW Metro-Plex is not convenient enough to enjoy Prairie Oaks on a whim, then you are a mere 50 feet from the Bowie Municipal Airport to the main gate of Prairie Oaks Ranch. Prairie Oaks Ranch provides a pastoral setting for family, friends, or business associates on retreat with a multitude of recreational options available to suit everyone. Manicured lawns meander around the 35acre Prairie Oaks Lake. The ranch house and pool overlook the first and 18th holes of the private golf course.

Taxes / Tax Year:  $1,706 / 2014 Property Summary:Echo Valley Ranch is located north east of Coleman, TX where a town called Echo once stood. Coleman County was founded in 1858. Not long after, the route for the Western Cattle Trail began near San Antonio, TX and ended in Ogallala, Nebraska. At Coleman City, herds often trailed right through town, traveling along Colorado Street. North of Coleman, herds forded Jim Ned Creek before continuing north. It was on a cattle drive in the Spring of 1884 that an ambitious cowhand by the name of J.P. Morris accompanied several thousand steers. Morris always kept his eyes open for good grazing land and he wanted a well-watered place with strong soil that could grow grass in abundance. While waiting a couple days for the flood waters of Jim Ned Creek to recede, Morris set out on his horse to explore the area. On one of these trips, he first laid eyes on the lush grass and broad valley that would someday become his home. At the confluence of Indian and Jim Ned Creeks, his search for the perfect ranch that he so patiently waited, came to an end. The land had everything that he wanted in a ranch: broad, well-watered creek valleys filled with lush grasses, which would support year-round cattle grazing. Over the next 53 years until Morris’s death in 1937, he compiled over 70,000 acres of land known as the Rafter 3 Ranch—prior to dividing it between his children. To this day, Morris’ descendants still own portions of the original property. Echo Valley Ranch is one of those parcels. Priced at only $2,395/acre it is waiting for the next discriminating owner to step in and carry the rich history forward into a new era.

Location: Located in North Central Texas just north of Bowie, Texas, a mere 1 ½ hours northwest of DFW. Water: Prairie Oaks Lake is a 35 acre lake built in 1969 by US Soil Conservation Service. The lake anchors the lower end of the ranch and is fed by Denton Creek. This lake has great fishing and can also be used for water sports such as jet skiing, tubing and sailing. The deepest part of the lake is currently around 15 feet. Most of the perimeter of the lake is lined with natural stone from the ranch. Two smaller lakes are perfect for swimming and fishing and can be filled from Prairie Oaks Lake via underground pipes. Both of these lakes are clear and have camping platforms for overnight stays. There are two creeks that cross the ranch one of which is Denton Creek. A dozen bridges, including a suspension bridge cross the numerous ravines and creeks. Three of the larger steel bridges were salvaged from the county and have been used to span some of the larger ravines. One of the creeks was partially dammed under one of the bridges to create a beautiful and soothing waterfall. There are numerous additional tanks throughout the ranch. Wildlife: While a portion of the ranch is highly improved and manicured, you can still take a walk on the wild side. Wildlife abounds on Prairie Oaks. White-tailed deer, Rio-Grande turkey, ducks, and of course coyotes, bobcats and the occasional mountain lion all inhabit the property in healthy numbers. You can find white­ tailed deer down by the lake and wild turkeys strolling around the grounds of the main house. Sitting on the veranda at night you can hear the coyotes howling under some of the brightest stars in the State. Prairie Oaks Ranch is the perfect property to build a perimeter high fence. Quality native white-tailed deer already inhabit the ranch but high fencing will allow the introduction of genetically improved deer as well as select exotics. If fishing is your thing, then you can wet your line in the 35-acre lake or either of the two smaller lakes for Florida Bass, crappie or catfish. Lakes are clear and well managed. A unique engineering feature ensures the lake won't silt over. Fishing piers are conveniently located so you can try your luck at matching the unofficial record for a 12lb largemouth bass. Improvements:Main House: Overlooking the lake is the beautiful 7,000 sq ft Texas Cape Cod style main house. The home is designed for small groups and as a family, corporate or church retreat. It includes a heated outdoor pool and an 8,800 sq ft covered deck that wraps around the house and along the pool to an outdoor fireplace made entirely of native stone. The ground floor and the second and third floor have bedrooms and a small meeting room. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. There is a command center room on the ground floor for all the computer and business center needs including high speed wireless internet and fax machines. The fourth floor is an "all windows" observation lookout for sunsets and stargazing. The interior is appropriately decorated in western style furniture and appointments and is uniquely eclectic. The kitchen has been completely remodeled and features state of the art appliances. The 20 acres immediately around the house and lake are designed for convenient recreational activities. Bunk House & Barns: There are two large barns, both metal buildings. The Bunkhouse Barn has a concrete floor and extensive storage, a small shop and power mechanics repair facility.

The smaller pole barn is used for tractors and mowers used to maintain the golf course. Golf Course: This is no homemade golf course. It was built over a period of two years and is in excellent condition. The owner utilizes industry proven management techniques as well as developing innovative techniques that have drawn the interest of several North Texas Golf Courses.

The front nine offers wider fairways and greens surrounded by bunkers. It is forgiving and provides sweeping views with dramatic changes in elevation. The 2nd & 9th fairway plays both ways.

The course accommodates five foursomes with 13 greens, four being played "both ways". The total course spans 5,300yards. The longest hole is 443yards. It's a long, downhill, dog-leg ride ending with a green that perches on the edge of the lake. The hole is both beautiful and humbling. The course emphasizes conservation. Chemical fertilizers have been largely supplemented by organic amendments including compost tea that is produced in commercial quantity by a system that was designed and built on the ranch. Water is provided from surface runoff. Walking, Jogging, Hiking or Biking: The beauty of the ranch can be viewed along the over five miles of paved walking trails or seven miles of mowed hiking trails.
