Wide Rack Ranch is a 640-acre mixture of manicured pastures and thick forest covering five drainages and six ridges. It is located 90 miles northeast of McKinney, TX near Boswell, OK. Durant is just a short 30-minute drive to the west. This ranch has 1 mile of frontage along its north border on Highway 109A and another mile of frontage along its western border on County Road 4070. A short private road runs ½ mile along the southwestern boundary. All these roads are quiet country roads that are in good shape but not overly busy. The ranch is located along a Lick Creek drainage that connects to Muddy Boggy Creek roughly four miles away. In addition, the Red River is only two miles south of the property. The ranch has four ponds on it with three being between 1.5 and 2 acres in size. If those aren’t large enough, the convergence of creeks on the property creates the topography to allow a lake up to 93 acres in size! Even at this maximum size, the lake would be roughly centered within the boundaries and entirely on property. Alternatively, lakes could be constructed on each drainage to create a series of smaller water bodies tailored for specific uses such as waterfowl habitat, fishing, or watersports. For someone looking to add more pasture, this same area is almost completely blanketed with Class 2 soil and much of it has been partially cleared. The removal of trees in these areas would make it easy to pile and burn the tops and stumps to finish the job. At that point, the next owner could either convert these areas into fertile pastures, large lakes, or a mixture of both. The north 140 acres of the ranch looks like a golf course with pretty ponds, manicured pastures, and large old oak trees. An old farmhouse and shop are located near the northeast corner of the property and could be easily removed to allow a fresh start. Hunting stands, feeders and food plots have been established by a group of lease hunters. They provided us with a nice set of photos that provided the basis for the name of the ranch. The bucks that have been harvested have typical racks with atypical wide spreads. We saw lots of deer and hog tracks on the property. The areas around the feeders have been torn up and clearly show that lots of wildlife are visiting them. The ponds were frozen when we were there, but we suspect the fishing will be good. We will verify as soon as possible with a quick fishing trip. If our timing is good, we may be able to call up a few wild turkeys as well. Given its proximity to the Red River, one would think that ducks and geese would rest on the ponds when they aren’t frozen. A square mile with great access, good road frontage, utilities, golf course pretty pastures, creeks, woods, and options for building lakes or more creek bottom pastures make this property ideal for a visionary steward looking for beautiful land to transform it into a dream ranch. Simply finishing out the creek bottoms, continuing to manage the wildlife and adding a beautiful home on one of the many attractive home sites is all this property needs. In addition, if you wanted to create a family compound, the road access along the north, west and southwest sides make it easy for the family to spread out and enjoy some privacy while still being close to one another. Conversely, if you were looking for an exit strategy, this frontage would also give lots of opportunities to subdivide the property and maximize your gain. The Land Doctors specialize in rural construction and development. We would love to show you this property and develop a vision for its future.
