ICON GLOBAL EXCLUSIVE LISTED FOR $200MM TURKEY TRACK RANCH 80,000 acres - under one fence Texas Panhandle Nearly 80,000 acres Under One Fence - Historic "Prize of the Panhandle" is legacy of Coble/Whittenburg empire. Known for natural resources and site of Battles of Adobe Walls of 1864 and 1874. Decision to sell comes after twelve decades of stewardship. Icon Global Group to market. The Turkey Track Ranch was pioneered in the era of legendary WT Waggoner, 6666 and Goodnight Ranches. Boasting almost 80,000 acres under one fence and some 26 miles of Canadian River frontage, the ranch is a rare confluence of natural resources; containing an abundance of water, productive fertile grasslands, and diverse wildlife -set within rolling and rugged topography of mesas, draws, valleys and vistas interposed with open rangeland -epitomizing the western ranch lifestyle and famed fertile buffalo plains of yesteryear. For the first time in over a century, this rare combination of history, heritage, and natural resources will change hands. The momentous decision was announced today by the Whittenburg and Coble families: "It is with careful consideration and great emotion that we announce that, after 120 years of stewardship by our family, we have decided to sell our historic Turkey Track Ranch in the Texas Panhandle. For over a century this American landmark has been an integral element of our heritage. Generations of Coble's and Whittenburg's have created lifetimes of memories on the Turkey Track. Due to our family's increasing numbers and geographical distances, we recognize that it is time to find a new steward for this historic holding. We have enlisted Bernard Uechtritz of the Icon Global Group in Dallas to bring the Turkey Track to market in the latter half of 2021. The ranch has and will forever hold not only the monuments, memories, and legacies of our now multigenerational families but, significantly, maintains a very important place within the well-chronicled chapters of early Texas and US history; similarly, the ranch and its past stewards hold a prideful and acknowledged position of contributions to the evolution of modern-day ranching and cattle raising industries, as well as the Oil & Gas sectors of our great state." - The Coble & Whittenburg Families - About Turkey Track Ranch WT (Tom) Coble and later James (Jimmie) A. Whittenburg III, were two of the stewards. Each was a past president of The Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association. Each considered a visionary as well as community and business leaders. Tom Coble was a contemporary of Dan and Tom Waggoner of the Waggoner Ranch, Samuel "Burk" Burnett of the Four Sixes Ranch, and Charles Goodnight of the JA and Goodnight Ranch. Coble recognized the infinite resources of the Southern Great Plains. Like Waggoner, Burnett, and Goodnight, he created a cattle kingdom that was sustained by thousands of acres of grass. Later, Whittenburg was the larger-than-life Texas Icon and entrepreneurial modern-day rancher who led the management of the Turkey Track for several decades. An early trendsetter of flying between properties and business interests, he operated several significant ranching interests in Texas and New Mexico, along with other business interests which included Aviation, Oil & Gas, Banking, Cattle Feed Yards; he was also a Special Texas Ranger. A winner of the Cattlemen's Beef Association Environmental Stewardship award in 2016, the Turkey Track is also held in high esteem by industry . Pete Bonds, then president of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association, said, "Turkey Track has an outstanding record for their environmental stewardship practices, water management programs and excellent grass diversity." The property is also the site of the two famed battles of the Adobe Walls of 1864 and 1874, and this hallowed ground just north of the Canadian River is revered by descendants of all combatants. In June of 1924, a six-acre site was given to the Panhandle Plains Historical Society commemorating that month the 50th anniversary of the second battle of the Adobe Walls. In 1941 a monument dedicated to the Native Americans who fought and died in the Battle of 1874 was also erected. Both Monuments stand within the ranch today.

UPDATE: The adjoining High Point Ranch mentioned in the video is no longer on the market. Over the years, the Land Doctors have seen a lot of land and because of that, it takes a lot to leave us awe struck. In a few special spots, nature makes us feel small and most of those places are national parks. Another one of those locations is the Land Doctors latest listing, the Canadian River Ranch. This 11,400-acre ranch is a diverse contiguous block of land with no public roads through it. Just viewing the property is a true expedition, as you can spend the entire day riding trails and still never see it all. To put it in a slightly different context, its over 17 square miles in size. If you looked at 1000 acres per hour it would take 11 hours to just drive through it. This ranch gives us an insight into what life was like a century or two ago before everything was broken up and fenced off. It makes you check your fuel gauge twice and pack a lunch before you head out. It is one of those rare places where you can look in every direction as far as you can see, and it all belongs to you. This place hasn't been fully tamed yet, it still has a wild edge to it that makes you feel fully awake and aware of your surroundings. In addition, it is as close to true isolation as you can get in a location that is only an hour from Tulsa, 90 minutes from OKC and three hours from Dallas straight up Highway 75 and the Indian Turnpike. If you have an airplane, it is an even shorter trip as the ranch has a 3000 ft long by 40 ft wide FAA registered runway (FAA OK04). As a state, Oklahoma has 11 distinct ecological regions and this ranch feels like it has every one of them. The ranch exhibits a tremendous amount of diversity from huge hardwoods and towering short leaf pines along the creeks, and tallgrass meadows in the openings to post oaks and blackjacks on the ridges. Three beautiful creeks drain into the North Canadian River as it runs along the northern boundary of the property. Parts of the ranch have a western feel with huge views across wide grassy valleys to distant slopes that feature a scattering of lonely trees on the point of a ridge. Other portions feel like the Deep South with huge hardwoods and beautiful creeks. Turn the corner and a distant pasture reminds you of the plains. It never gets boring. A portion of the property is high and there is some cross fencing in the pastures. Outside of that, there are miles and miles of trails through vast tracts of timbered hills unencumbered by any man-made barriers. The north boundary of the property features approximately 1.5 miles of North Canadian River frontage just 10 miles upstream of Lake Eufaula. This would serve as the perfect spot to begin a day long float trip. The entire 4-mile length of Piney Creek is located on the ranch. Limbo Creek weaves on and off the property with over 4.5 miles running through the ranch. Shell Creek also starts on the ranch and runs through it for 1.3 miles. Wallace Creek runs south from the ranch while Gar Creek cuts across the northeast corner. A peak in the center of the property stands at almost 1000 feet and from there the land drops 300 feet in elevation as it slopes north to the river. The views are captivating in the daytime and unbelievable at night as the Milky Way is clearly visible without the interference of urban lights. Ancient petroglyps are known to be along the creeks and we will be seeking them out this fall. The next owner will not be the first steward owner attempting to wrangle this land. The Hawkins mansion stands at the precipice of a tall ridge overlooking the valley below. As you walk out on the top balcony and take in the scene before you, you can imagine the ambition of the family that built this once impressive home out of Oklahoma sandstone in 1934. The next owner will be a person who has overcome many difficult obstacles in life to realize great achievements. The revival and management of this property will add to that legacy and serve as a capstone project leaving a long-lasting mark on this historic property. The following color coded subdivisions of the property are now available for purchase: Purple - 5634 acres Green - 3670 acres Red - 1549 acres Orange - 439 acres Yellow - 120 acres This property is now part of a federal bankruptcy proceeding and will be subject to a stalking horse bid process. A brochure on how this process works has been attached as a document. In summary, we are seeking a fully qualified buyer to make an initial, non-contingency offer on the property. Once this offer is submitted, it will serve as the opening bid (stalking horse bid) on the property in an auction that will be held approximately 30 to 45 days later in bankruptcy court. The details of the stalking horse bid will be advertised to other prospective bidders. If the stalking horse bid isn't the high bid in the auction, then the stalking horse bidder with receive 2% of the gross sales price at the closing of the property for having served as the stalking horse. If you have any questions or would like to discuss this property, please call Kelly Hurt at 580 421 7512. If you have any questions about how the bankruptcy proceedings would affect the manner or timing of a transaction please contact Heather Milazzo at 646 381 9207 or email her at HMilazzo@

PROPERTY OVERVIEW: As the largest private water offering in the state of Texas and the premier rural land asset in the lower 48 states, Fairfield Lake is a once in a generation opportunity. And there will be only one shot at acquiring it. At the heart of this unique property of approximately 5,025 acres is Fairfield Lake-an estimated 2,400-acre body of water surrounded by a 21-mile elevated shoreline blanketed with a mature hardwood forest. A deep-water asset of this scale is the only offering of its kind. Within the 5,025+/- total acres is Fairfield Lake State Park, approximately1,800 acres, that's recognized as one of Texas' finest. Inside the park, are 8+/- miles of highway grade blacktop two lane roads, bridges, concrete boat ramps, truck and trailer parking with underground power running throughout. The park property is leased to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) and can be continued or canceled with sufficient notice to TPWD. Fairfield Lake is in a premier location in Freestone County, Texas just east of Interstate 45, which is centrally located between Dallas ~95 miles, Houston ~160 miles, and Austin ~170. There is a ~34 square mile drainage basin flowing into this highly desirable asset that offers fishing, recreation, and a multitude of potential development concepts such as entertainment, recreational or commercial-based. The remaining acreage, ~825 acres (Northern Acreage), located on the northern shoreline of the lake adds to the uniqueness of the property with two extremely rare private islands connected via a land bridge to each. Future development of the ~150-acre and ~30-acre islands is limited only by one's imagination. Situated between the two islands are ~140 acres that was formally a corporate park/meeting center. Improvements include an 1970's vintage conference center, a brick home that was converted into office space and a ~15-acre park on a manicured picturesque overlook of the lake. Both structures could use updating, but this area offers significant opportunities for its future use. The rustic, remote and mainly untouched landscape is full of wildlife and offers exceptional hunting and fishing opportunities. Property acreages consist of the following: TPWD Fairfield Lake State Park = 1,800+/- Acres Fairfield Lake = 2,400+/- Acres Northern Acreage = 825+/- Acres Total= 5,025+/- Acres LOCATION: Centrally located between Dallas, Houston, and Austin, east of Interstate 45, less than seven miles northeast of the picturesque town of Fairfield, population 2,900. This property is in the Post Oak Savannah Region of Texas on the forested eastern edge of Freestone County near the Trinity River. Fairfield State Park's physical address is: 123 State Park Road 64, Fairfield, TX 75840. DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL:With over 21 miles of undeveloped shoreline, this property is a blank canvas offering massive development potential. Ownership uses could range from a private ranch, hunting and fishing club to residential, commercial, corporate, leisure, theme park, and resort development. The Seller owns a railroad asset that may be available to purchase with limited land surrounding the RR line. The RR is not included in the current asking price.The possibilities for the future of Fairfield Lake are countless. ACCESS & ROAD FRONTAGE: Access to Fairfield Lake is highly desirable with FM 2570 providing access to the North side of the lake, and FM 3285 providing access to the South side of the property. FM 3285 turns into Park Road 64 upon entering the park. County Road 235 provides additional access points to the northeast side of the property, leading to the south and north sides of the lake dam. DIRECTIONS: From Interstate 45 in Fairfield, TX, go east on HWY 84 to FM 488, stay right on FM 2570, then turn right on FM 3285 until this road dead-ends into Park Road 64 at the entrance of Fairfield Lake State Park. PROPERTY HISTORY: In 1969, Texas Power and Light Company constructed a dam on Big Brown Creek to create Fairfield Lake. The lake would serve as the cooling reservoir for the Big Brown Power Plant. Fairfield Lake finalized construction in 1969 with the plant operational in 1971. Big Brown Power Plant warmed the waters of Fairfield Lake year-round, creating a thriving fishery that quickly became popular among anglers across the state. TPWD opened Fairfield Lake State Park in 1976. The retirement of the power plant in 2018 opened this incredible opportunity to now acquire this unique expansive property. FAIRFIELD LAKE: This spectacular, recreational lake has exceptional fishing, water skiing, boating activities, and swimming. With an estimated depth of 50 feet at its deepest point, the lake is fed by Big Brown Creek, Little Brown Creek, Hanna Branch, Harpers Branch, Powell Branch, Ball Branch and Dry Branch. There are currently two public boat ramps located inside the park and one private boat ramp on the north side of the lake. All three concrete ramps are in excellent condition providing multiple access points around the lake. FISHERIES:While the power plant operated, fishing enthusiastsroutinely flocked to Fairfield Lake for the warmed winter water to catch redfish, catfish and largemouth bass. A tropical species, Blue tilapia, took advantage of the warm waters and thrived, but have since disappeared. After the plant retired, reports of the fisheries have actually improved. Native fish have adjusted to the cooler waters extremely well with 8-10lb largemouth bass being regularly caught. The lake record largemouth is 13.01 lbs. Other current fish species include, catfish, bluegill, sunfish, carp, and alligator gar. There are no crappie, white bass, hybrid bass, or stripers adding to the quality of this black bass fishery. WATER RIGHTS: Per the December 18, 1967 Certificate of Adjudication, 50,600-acre feet of impoundment rights. In addition, there are 14,150-acre feet of consumptive water rights out of Big Brown Creek that are being retained by the current owner though the opportunity exists to purchase all or a portion of the consumptive water rights. At normal pool, Fairfield Lake stores 44,169 acre-feet of water according to Freese & Nichols 2020 Dam Inspection Report at the normal pool level of 310 feet. Included in the sale is a water pipeline running from the south end of the lake dam to an inoperable pumping station on the Trinity River via a deeded easement through two adjacent owners. There are currently no water rights or pumping rights from the Trinity River associated with the line. LAKE DAM: Fairfield Lake's dam is a 4,350-foot earthen dam that maintained its Low Hazard classification from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) after its 2020 inspection. Diligent upkeep of the dam by the current owner, including the installation of fencing to deter the area's feral hogs, have kept maintenance costs low relative to dams of similar size. Fairfield Lake's dam has aLarge dam classification due to the total lake storage exceeding 50,000-acre feet in storage capacity at the top of the dam. Conservation Pool of 44,169-acre feet and Top of Dam Storage of 70,840-acre feet (per F&N 2020 Report). Dam Specifications: Maximum height: 77 feet above the original streambed. Embankment side slopes: 3 horizontal to 1 vertical Downstream slope: includes a 130-foot wide stabilizing berm below elevation 290 feet. Upstream slope: protected by soil cement extending from the crest down to a five-foot berm at elevation 295 feet. Constructing a dam of this magnitude today would be nearly impossible to get permitted and the cost would be extremely expensive. PRIMARY & EMERGENCY SPILLWAYS: The 66-foot wide primary spillway is concrete with two 30' x 14' radial Tainter gates that control discharges as needed (including one six-foot wide pier). There is also a backup generator in place, should the dam ever lose power. In addition to the primary spillway, the emergency spillway elevation is at 314-feet compared to the normal pool level of 310-feet above sea level. FAIRFIELD STATE PARK: The park, roughly 1,800 acres, encompasses the southern "half" of the lake, with most of the facilities on the south and southeast shoreline. Upon entry, guests are greeted at the check-in station by TPWD Park Rangers, who guide visitors to a variety of activities and programs within the park. The park is extremely well kept with attention to detail around every corner. The park's exceptional road system is highlighted by miles of two lane black top roads meandering through storybook hardwood canopy. Upon settling in on your adventure, activities could include primitive camping, RV camping, hiking, biking, horseback trail riding, nature studies, bird watching, kayaking, water skiing, jet skiing and fishing. Watching children at play on the gently sloping sandy bottom beach area makes for a perfect ending to event filled days at Fairfield Lake. Points of interest in the park include the Hill Homestead Well, Chancellor Union Cemetery, Ski Cove Overlook, and the Dockery Trail Overlook. The park improvements currently include a check-in station/shop, dining hall, two park ranger residences, two floating boat docks, two concrete boat ramps with paved turnaround access points, fish cleaning stations, fishing pier, parking areas, numerous restrooms & shower facilities, primitive campsites, RV camping with water and electric to most sites, amphitheater, sand volleyball court, swing set, picnic areas complete with fire pits and grills, Wi-Fi hotspots, maintenance facilities and underground electric run to all improvements inside the park.

TERRAIN: The sandy loam land consists of elevation changes of approximately 130 feet. Elevation is approximately 250 feet above sea level at its lowest and approximately 380 feet above sea level at its highest. There are several creeks and drainages meandering through the landscape feeding into the lake and wetland areas. TREE COVER & PASTURELAND: The high banks surrounding Fairfield Lake consist of an old growth hardwood canopy. Improved grasses dominate the north end of the lake and lake dam. Native grasses thrive in the open meadows throughout the park. Uplands consist of a variety of oaks intermixed with flowering dogwoods during the Spring bloom. Towering oak, elm, pecan, and ash trees grow in the rich bottomlands along Big Brown Creek. WETLANDS:Behind the spillway there is shallow drainage that feeds into ~6-acre and ~3-acre wetland areas. Alternatively, the south end of the lake presents multiple wetland ecosystems. Waterfowl can be found in the backwaters of Fairfield Lake as well as 5-6 semi-open flooded timber holes scattered along the two main creek systems feeding the lake. Wetland cattail, bulrush, and water lily along the lake's edge create a marshland oasis for birds, turtles, and frogs. WILDLIFE: The array of wildlife includes an abundance of white-tailed deer, armadillos, raccoons, river otters, beavers, squirrels, foxes, bobcats and coyotes.

Bald eagles spend their winter months at the lake and colorful painted buntings are frequently seen in the summertime. MINERALS:No minerals are believed to be owned by the Seller and none will convey. There are 3 active gas wells on the interior of the property. OUTPARCELS:Hopewell Church is located within the Young Cemetery on the north side of the property on a small 30-acre island connected by a land bridge. On the south side of the lake, surrounded by the park, is the Chancellor Union Cemetery, a Texas Historic Landmark with ties to the Civil War. Both cemeteries are not believed to negatively impact the property, but to provide history and areas of interest. STRUCTURAL IMPROVEMENTS: There are two ranger residences and numerous other facilities in the park. In the northern acreage there is one residence converted into office space and a conference center with overnight facilities. The residence and conference center need significant refurbishment. There are also several maintenance buildings for storing equipment and materials.

One of the finest turnkey hunting and recreational ranches on the market in Texas today. Providing both world-class white-tailed deer hunting along with some of the best wing shooting in Texas, this ranch is a Sportsman’s paradise! No details were spared in the development of the property and with all of the infrastructure already in place, the ranch is ready for new owners to start enjoying it from day one! LOCATION: As the crow flies the ranch lies 14 miles Northeast of San Angelo, Texas. Driving time from: -Midland, TX -1hr 33 min -Dallas, TX-4 hr 19 min -San Antonio, TX-3 hr 25 min -Houston, TX-6hr IMPROVEMENTS: The existing improvements bring tremendous value to the operation and enjoyment of the ranch. The main hunting lodge is over 6000 square feet and boasts a sequestered double master suite wing along with 4 large rooms, each with their own separate baths, a beautiful living room and separate game room, a commercial kitchen, bar, office, and a gunroom. Grounds surrounding the lodge are immaculate with beautiful views of the surrounding country. Not far from the lodge is a drive through cleaning station with a walk-in cooler, a covered gun range, a large BBQ pavilion, a large barn, 3 homes for ranch staff, multiple small barns and workshops and 3 overhead grain silos. One of the biggest attributes to the property is a stellar deer breeding facility that houses an office, storage, working chutes, holding and operating rooms, and a bathroom all under one roof. The facility also has 24 outdoor pens with shelters, wind breaks and misting systems. Separately, there are 6 DMP pens that are currently being used for soft release. Scattered across the ranch are 5 pivots ranging in size from 10 to 75 acres. These are planted with alfalfa, oats and haygrazer and are utilized as food plots with the excess alfalfa being sold. A separate field is planted with milo for the birds. Lastly, the perimeter of the ranch is fenced with 8’ game fence and is traversed with miles of improved caliche roads. EQUIPMENT TO BE CONVEYED: Most furniture in the main lodge along with all of the deer blinds and feeders will convey with the sale. All owned minerals will also convey. The sellers believe they own minerals on the southern portion of the ranch. Buyers are advised to conduct their own research to determine the exact amount. The pipeline mentioned above does produce some monthly income to the ranch. WATER: Water on the ranch is tremendous as it boasts over 40 water wells. They range in production from 10 to 100 gallons per minute and supply water to the watering stations that cover the ranch, the 5 pivots, and they also fill the lake behind the main lodge. TERRAIN / HABITAT: Terrain on the ranch is extremely diverse. A rolling mountain range enters the property on the northwest corner and traverses the westernmost part of the ranch with the highest elevation being 2390’ above sea level. This elevation provides amazing views of the entire ranch and creek valleys below. The eastern portion of the ranch is beautiful bottom land with fertile loamy soils, big mesquite and native grasses and brush. In the creek bottoms you will find oaks, hackberry and other hardwoods. The southern portion of the ranch is amazing quail habitat with excellent soil, lots of native grasses, some cacti and excellent balance of cover to open spaces. Food plots are generously dispersed all over the ranch with some in hay grazer for enhancement of the already strong quail populations. WILDLIFE: Because the owners have been intensively managing and improving the population for over 10 years, the quality of wildlife on the property is second to none! The main focus has been on the deer herd, but improvements have had a tremendous positive impact on the health and numbers of the entire wildlife community. The overall goal has been to maintain a strong pasture herd with good age structure that produces multiple 200 inch deer year after year and they have succeeded! A population of approx. 600 (7 acres/1 deer) and a 1:1 buck to doe ratio has produced the desired result. Harvest and survey records can be made available to the serious buyer. In addition to the pastured deer, a number of bucks and does with possible offspring are being managed at the deer breeding facility with top-notch bloodlines. In a recent survey, the wildlife manager also observed 100 head of Axis deer, more than 30 coveys of quail, over 300 turkey and a phenomenal dove population. EASEMENTS: Easements on the property include electrical, pipeline, and any other of record. However, there is no easement through this property to access any other property. MINERALS: Minerals owned by seller if any will convey. The pipeline produces some monthly income to the ranch. The sellers believe they own minerals on the southern portion of the ranch. Buyers are advised to conduct their own research to determine the exact amount. This ranch is an absolute must see for the avid sportsman that desires a turnkey, established working ranch that supplies world class hunting. Call Anthony Simpson to schedule a private showing!

Henry fought in the Confederate Army in 1861 and after 4 years he returned to find that his wife, Jane, had died giving birth to their 3rd child. He then remarried and started a new life with a master seamstress, Sarah. They then began their life together in poverty. Henry acquired most of his 1000 cattle and 500 horses by trading his skill and courage, moving herds of cattle across the Red River when it was overflowing. He also traded his wife's shirts for cattle and horses. In 1877, Henry and Sarah left Fannin County to relocate to Quanah, Texas, but a heavy rain season forced them to stop in Stephens County. They stopped along Bufford Creek and Henry went into Breckenridge the next day to purchase 4 sections of land. He, his brothers and his sons ultimately grew their herd to 20,000 head of cattle and the ranch to 30,000 acres. Henry passed away in 1906 at 66 years of age after catching the flu at a Confederate War veteran's reunion in New Orleans. His wife Sarah then divided the ranch amongst several family members. The Black family has had many accomplishments over the years, helping to make Breckenridge what it is today. This portion of the Black Brothers Muleshoe Ranch is now owned by 3 siblings being fourth generation owners. It is not every day that you come across an opportunity to purchase a historic ranch of this caliber. (Additional history is available upon request) Terrain: Rolling hills to level terrain with an elevation change of 130 feet (high elevation of 1290' and low elevation of 1160'). The East Fork of Bufford Creek meanders through the heart of the ranch. The riparian area along the creek is lined with mature elm and oak trees with incredible rock features of boulders and massive rock shelves creating a unique land feature. Pastureland is productive for cattle and there are scenic rocky ridges as well. Vegetation:This property is located in the Cross Timbers Region of Texas. Tree cover consists of mature live oak, post oak, cedar elm, hackberry, mesquite, and a variety of other trees commonly found in this area. Forbs, browse and cactus species include elbowbush, skunkbush, prickly pear, tasajillo, catclaw, lote bush and greenbrier to name a few. Native grasses include side oats, bluestem, switchgrass, Texas wintergrass, dropseed, buffalo grass, Indiangrass, curly mesquite, and a variety of other grasses. Wildlife habitat and pastureland is above average and in excellent condition. Water:There are at least twenty (20) earthen stock tanks providing water to livestock and wildlife in every pasture. Approximately 2 miles of the East Fork of Bufford Creek meanders through the middle of the ranch with seasonal pools of water. Rainfall averages around 29 inches annually and a rural water line runs along FM 701. (See below) Wildlife: Deer, turkey, hogs, quail, dove, ducks and native wildlife species are plentiful and provide great hunting and viewing. The free-ranging, low fence, trophy whitetail deer herd is one of the best you will find in Stephens County. Migratory ducks utilize the stock tanks in the fall and winter months creating additional hunting opportunities.The ranch has not been leased for hunting in decades (if ever) and the whitetail deer herd is in excellent condition as a result. There is one new deer feeder in place, but no other deer stands or feeders on the ranch. Deer Herd: The following data was obtained from a helicopter deer survey on October 20, 2021: TOTAL DEER: 213 DEER DENSITY: 1 deer per 13 acres BUCK: DOE RATIO: 1 buck: 3 does (43 bucks & 132 does) MATURE BUCKS: 8 mature bucks OTHER: Two bobcats, 6 coveys of quail, 96 hogs, 10 coyotes, andsurprisingly only 5 turkey (which are normally abundant).

Rangeland is strong and cattle do very well in this area. Soils:A variety of soils types can be found. Lindy silt loam is common and may be used for cultivation, pasture, range, woodland, and wildlife. Other soils range from fine sandy loam to Throck clay to very stony/ bouldery soils. There are several areas conducive for cropland or wildlife food plots if desired by new owner. Fencing:Perimeter fences are in good to excellent condition and will hold cattle. There is approximately (1) mile of new fencing in the northwest portion of the ranch. In addition, several new gates have recently been installed to improve internal access. Eight (8) fenced pastures allow for rotational grazing and there are two (2) sets of cattle pens. Internal Roads & Access:There is a good system of roads to get around the property. Recent road work has improved internal access substantially. FM 701 runs along the East side of the ranch allowing access to the entrance gate in all weather conditions. Electricity: Oncor provides electricity to the property. There is electricity available throughout the property, but owner doesn't have any active meters since there are no structural improvements. Rural Water:Stephens Special Utility District has a rural water line running down FM 701. It is unknown whether a water meter can be obtained until an application is filled out and submitted. Stephens SUD will then complete an engineering study to determine the feasibility of adding a new meter. As of October 2021, a water meter was available for the ranch to be installed.

Summary: Bois d'arc Hills Ranch features 1,628.84+/- acres of rolling pasture, scattered tree cover, cultivation, numerous stock ponds, and multiple large bass lakes. The property also offers high potential for development with an abundance of road frontage, utilities (power and water) available, and excellent proximity to I-35 and DFW. Location: The property is located in the northeast part of Hill County on FM 67 and FM 2719 between the towns of Grandview, Itasca, and Covington, approximately 55 miles south of Dallas and 43 miles south of Ft. Worth. Terrain: In an area generally known to for its abundance of gently rolling farm land, Majors Branch and other seasonal branches & creeks have uniquely shaped the landscape here within this scenic valley to create a surprising 120'+/- of overall elevation change and big distant views across the ranch. The land has great character and diversity, and is marked by rolling hills, abundant water features, lush hay meadows, fertile fields, and a variety of native hardwoods. Bois d'arc, pronounced "bo-dark" and French for "bow-wood", is one of the hardest hardwood tree varieties that you'll find in our state and was long known and used by native Indians as a great wood for bow and tool making due to its excellent flexibility, hardness, and durability. Also known as Osage Orange, (name given as the wood was sought after and utilized by Osage Indian tribes) or "horse apple", this tree species is scattered across the hills and in abundant supply on the ranch along with a lot of elm and hackberry, and the occasional oak or pecan. Water: Water, water, water. Surface water is in abundant supply here as the rolling terrain is traversed by multiple wet weather creeks and branches including Majors Branch, which feed the ~43 acre, ~12 acre, and ~7.5 acre lakes, and 12+/- stock ponds that you'll find on the property. The ~43 and ~12 acre lakes are Soil Conservation Service structures that were originally constructed in 1967 as part of the Chambers Creek WS project and designated as Dam Sites 67B and 67A. As is fairly common with SCS lakes, the dam design and construction are about as good as you'll find, and both lakes have concrete drop inlet primarily spillways and grass embankment auxiliary or emergency spillways. These two lakes are located in relation to one another as such that it allowed their auxiliary spillways to be constructed where they tie together and is a really interesting feature that took some serious engineering. Also common with SCS lakes of this age, they do tend to silt up over time and can be fairly shallow. All three lakes are fed by healthy watersheds and don't fluctuate a great deal. The smaller ~7.5 acre lake has an interesting dam construction/shape and also has a similar drop inlet primary spillway. Recreational use for fishing is outstanding for largemouth, bass, catfish, crappie, and perch, and there's no doubt seasonal duck hunting has been and can be off the charts good. These many water features stretch through and/or are scattered around the ranch and provide reliable water sources for livestock and wildlife. There are believed to be a few water wells on the property and many in the area if underground water is desired, and local rural water providers are believed to have water lines piped to the property along both FM highways that border the north and south sides of the ranch. Wildlife/Hunting: The ranch has not been hunted by the owner or leased for hunting in years. There are deer, hogs, and varmint here, but with this much water and as is evidenced by the several old duck blinds that remain, hunting for waterfowl is where it's at on Bois d'arc Hills. Pastures: The property is leased for grazing and cross fenced into ~20 pastures that aid in pasture management and rotational grazing practices. Through the current tenant's efforts, the pastures are occasionally sprayed & fertilized and clearly show no signs of overgrazing. Many of the pastures have improved grasses such as coastal Bermuda and are cut and baled annually. Cultivation/Farming: There are ~643 acres leased and farmed for wheat, corn, and occasionally cotton. The current lease is through September 1, 2023, but may be terminated as terms of a sale. Roads/Fences:The ranch has approximately 3.8 miles of road frontage on FM 67 to the north, FM 2719 to the south, & CR 4114 to the west, is also believed to have ~2,200' of frontage along and access on PR 412. The interior roads are largely unimproved, but the property does have a good system of pasture roads and trails. Exterior and cross fences range from fair to excellent and have been well maintained by the grazing tenant. There are also 3 separate sets of working pens as well as multiple catch pens and hay storage traps around the property. Minerals: Owner is believed to own a considerable percentage of the minerals and is negotiable on conveying some minerals with an acceptable offer. There are 4 gas wells on the property. Buyer will assume responsibility and expenses associated with a mineral ownership report if one is desired. Structural Improvements: There are three homes on the property that are currently rented out. There are also 3 other old homes that are believed to be beyond repair. There are also numerous barns, sheds, and even a few grain silos on the ranch. Utilities: Hilco Electric Cooperative provides electric service with lines in place on the property. Files Valley Water Supply provides rural water to the north and west portions of the property along FM 67 and CR 4114. Woodrow-Osceola Water Supply services the southern portion of the property along FM 2719. School District: Itasca Independent School District Property Taxes: The property is ag-exempt and annual property taxes are believed to be approximately $11,000 Asking Price: Contact Agent Contact: Bret Polk, Agent 254-965-0349 mobile Broker & Commission Disclosure: Buyer's Agent/ Broker must be identified upon first contact with Listing Broker/ Listing Agent and Buyer's Agent/ Broker must be present at the initial property tour in order to participate in the real estate commission.

Overview: A wildlife sanctuary awaits at Delta Ranch! The ranch has excellent proximity to DFW, being located approximately 89 miles northeast of Dallas in Delta County. The ranch boasts over ~3 miles of South Sulphur River frontage. Delta Ranch has been managed extensively for whitetail deer since 2004 and is currently under the state's Managed Land Deer Program (MLDP). The ranch has two access points off the Texas SH 154/SH 19 frontage, as well as a deeded easement that enters via the northeast corner of the property from County Road 1187 (see map for location). The mostly bottomland hardwood ranch makes it an exceptional hunting & recreational option for the avid outdoorsman. The mature whitetail bucks on the ranch typically score in the range of 140-150 B&C. There is also an impressive trail system, totaling approximately 16.28 miles, throughout that makes the entire ranch accessible via UTV's, even during the wettest conditions. With the South Sulphur River frontage and three creeks (Brushy Creek, Greenbrier Branch and McGuyer Branch) flowing through the ranch, Cooper Lake being less than ~3 miles from the western boundary of the ranch and a known magnet for waterfowl enthusiasts, there are endless possibilities to create a waterfowl haven for wintering waterfowl. Location: Located due East of Cooper, TX, off Texas SH 154/SH 19, just below Cooper Lake dam. Wildlife & Hunting: The ranch measures ~3.2 miles from the west boundary to the east boundary offering numerous hunting opportunities on this low fence fair chase ranch. Food plots have been well thought out and placed throughout the ranch. Each setting is unique and well-spaced for hunters that desire different settings throughout the hunting season. While there are no managed wetlands on the property today it is believed that those opportunities exist for future development. Multiple creek systems and drainages traverse the ranch from west to east through the relatively flat bottom land that is covered in hardwood timber. The area is a prime location for waterfowl ready for the next owner to make this a multifaceted recreational ranch. Deer Stands & Feeders: The deer stands, corn & protein feeders may convey with the sale of the ranch. Managed Land Deer Program (MLDP): Delta Ranch is enrolled in the Conservation Option under the state's MLDP. A big benefit from being enrolled under the MLDP is that the deer season is extended by approximately two months (typically the deer season is from the beginning of October through the end of February when enrolled under the MLDP). In the 2020-2021 whitetail deer season, Delta Ranch was given 17 deer tags, with 5 tags being allocated to buck and 12 being allocated to anterless. More information on the MLDP can be found on the state's website. Barndominium: The barndominium is approximately 900/sq. ft and sits perched on the northern most part of the property on a hilltop surrounded by majestic hardwoods. There is approximately 600/sq. ft for the hunter's camp complete with a kitchen, bathroom and loft, as well as an additional 300/sq. ft of insulated barn space. The rustic, yet functional, barndominium comfortably sleeps three people providing a place to stay while planning a more permanent structure. City water, power and septic are in place. Barn/Shed: The covered barn is approximately 450/sq. ft and is open air. A perfect place to store various ranch equipment. Terrain/Topography: The ranch in general is relatively flat throughout the ranch except for the home location that rises 30-40' above the bottomland floor. Elevations vary approximately 20-25' across the remainder of the ranch. Prior to the current owner owning the property an elevated levee system was constructed along the banks of the Sulphur River frontage. The levee offers a great roadway to traverse west to east during wet times of the year. Taxes: Delta Ranch is wildlife exempt. Per Delta County Appraisal District, the approximate taxes were $2,722.41 for 2020. Minerals: Seller owned minerals are negotiable. Directions: From I-635 in Dallas, head east on I-30 for approximately 45 miles to take Exit 101 towards TX-24. Head north on TX-24 for approximately 25 miles to turn right onto TX-154. Head east on TX-154 for approximately 2.5 miles to arrive at the ranch entrance off TX-154. From Sulphur Springs, head north on TX-154 for approximately 15 miles to ranch entrance on the right.

The historic Hundley Ranch is in the heart of Hughes County, Oklahoma and nestled on the forested banks of the South Canadian River. This ranch has been owned by the Hundley family since 1904, which is three years before the State of Oklahoma joined the Union. Since those early days when Mr. J.W. Hundley first began putting the ranch together, it has remained under the Hundley family's stewardship and ownership through four generations. Over these 117 years, this special property has been ranched, farmed, hunted, and beloved by the family and their closest friends. Think about that for a moment, this property has been stewarded by the same family for over a century and the last time it was on the market was four years before the Model T was first manufactured. That easily qualifies this as a legacy property. Located 190 miles from Dallas, less than 90 from Oklahoma City and with an entry gate located about a mile from a paved road, this 1403 (more or less) acre property's general characteristics make it unique, beautiful and rare. Approximately 70% of the ranch is wooded with the remaining 30%, mostly river bottom pasture with some scattered upland pastures. As one might expect with substantial bottom land, this ranch features extremely fertile soils. Approximatively 540 acres of the ranch are classified as "Class 4" soils or better with 220 acres being Class 1 and 2 soils. These types of soils make it possible to not only farm and ranch a portion of the property, but to also manage wildlife at a very high level if the next owner decides to plant these rich river bottom soils in wildlife forage or grain crops while maintaining the upland areas with the current blanket of large red oaks. As you explore the property, you will appreciate the extensive trail system that makes traversing a property of this size enjoyable. With approximately 200' of elevation change, the breathtaking views the ranch provides are stunning. Its rolling hills and diverse geography offer magnificent views for as far as the eye can see. For those most interested in the diverse, plentiful, and thriving wildlife population associated with Hughes County, this property will not disappoint. In this part of Oklahoma, one will primarily expect Rio Grande or Rio Grande/Eastern hybrid turkeys and whitetail deer. The sellers have also told us the ranch has had a great duck population as well, particularly mallards. Over the years, the property has also been known for producing trophy largemouth bass and large catfish. The sellers provided an impressive selection of photos showing trophy bucks, outstanding bass and wild turkeys. We have run trail cameras extensively on two adjoining properties and have concluded that that this entire stretch of river bottom is loaded with outstanding wildlife. Large neighboring ranches also ensure that the hunting pressure remains low. The ranch features numerous ponds, which have all been named by the family. The largest pond on the property, "The Big Pond," is over five acres and gently tapers off in the hardwoods and timber that surround its northern end. Above the "Big Pond," is an older cabin still used by the Hundley Family. Although not a large structure, this was the place where the Hundley's gathered for many Thanksgivings together. The Land Doctors think this area could be expanded and would make the perfect place for a new hunting lodge. The other large ponds on the property, "Catfish Pond," "Bass Pond," and "Crappie Pond," approximately measure 2 acres, 1.30 acres, and 1 acres, respectively. The sellers tell us "Bass Pond" has had consistent five-pound bass caught in it over the years, with the "Catfish Pond" once producing a 12-pound largemouth. "Duck Pond" in the middle of the property was always known to be the best spot for duck hunting. For those just wish to see and experience unique wildlife, a bald eagles nest, also known as an aerie, was identified by the sellers in the bottom along the river. Perhaps the most unique feature of the property is its location on the South Canadian River. With around 8,800' of frontage along the banks of the river, the river provides a beautiful focal point to the ranch. We have located an old river channel in the timber along the river that we think would be an outstanding place to create duck habitat for some top notch flooded timber waterfowl hunts. In addition to the physical features of the property, the ranch also offers something special for those with an interest in early Oklahoma history. The sellers tell us over the years they have found a large number of arrowheads in the bottoms. There is also a small Native American cemetery. Finally, an old railroad bed passes through the property and is a reminder of days gone by. The Land Doctors believe this ranch to be one of the best, most beautiful recreational ranches we've ever listed. If your dream is to own your own legacy ranch where family and friends will want to come back to again and again, then look no further than The Hundley Ranch.

Overview: The 1,375-acre River Crest Ranch is located at the confluence of Mustang Creek and the Sulphur River in the SW corner of Red River County. The massive permitted private 550+/- ac lake (at normal pool), at this price point, provides the investor ample opportunity to further develop into a trophy fishing lake. To assist with lake levels during drought times the property could include a portion of owned Water Rights out of the Sulphur River Basin with an acceptable offer. As observed while on the property, waterfowl and deer are prolific on River Crest Ranch. The current owner has not allowed hunting or fishing in over 30+ years making this a wildlife sanctuary. Located on the north side of the ranch, a favorite loafing spot for cattle and wildlife, is a cold-water natural spring that appears to flow year-round. River Crest Ranch offers many potential options and is priced at a very reasonable price point for the amount of surface water and water rights included with the sale. Location: Located in the southwestern corner of Red River County, the main ranch road sits just off of Hwy 271 south of Bogata, TX. The ranch is located approximately 19 miles northwest of the quaint downtown area of Mount Pleasant, TX. River Crest borders are formed by Mustang Creek and the Sulphur River, with the confluence of these two live water elements forming the western and southern boundary of the ranch. The ranch is located ~19 miles northwest of Mount Pleasant; ~30 miles southeast of Paris; ~120 miles east of Dallas, & ~125 miles northwest of downtown Shreveport, LA. Directions: From downtown Mount Pleasant, travel ~4 miles north to US Hwy 271. Go North on US Hwy 271 towards Bogota, travel ~16 miles and the River Crest gate will be on the left. From downtown Bogota, head southeast on US Hwy 271 towards Mount Pleasant. After traveling ~7 minutes and/or 6.1 miles, the main ranch gate will be on the right. River Crest Lake: The 550+/- acre lake sits in the central/south central portion of the property, surrounded by timber on two sides in close proximity to the banks of the Sulphur River. The massive body of water provides surface water for livestock, wildlife, and also serves as a refuge for thousands of migrating waterfowl in the winter months. Originally constructed in 1953, River Crest Lake consists of over 14,000' of homogeneous earthen embankment with an average of 23' above the original ground elevation. The impoundment is an off-channel storage reservoir which was originally maintained by direct rainfall, natural runoff and pumping from the Sulphur River as needed. The embankment designed crest elevation is 335'. The elevation of Design at Normal Pool is 330' and the lake is currently being maintained at 319'. At the current elevation it is believed that the lake is approximately 453+/- acres. Capacity at Design Normal Pool is 9,700/Ac Ft. Dam Inspection Summary Report: The dam at River Crest is considered in the intermediate size classification and is a low hazard classification. This is primarily due to the current water levels that have been maintained since power production ceased in 2010. A full report was conducted on the dam in September of 2019. This report is available upon request. Terrain: Exceptional topography for this region, just under 100' of elevation change. The highest point on the property at 391' above mean sea level would make a fantastic home site overlooking River Crest Lake. The lowest points on the ranch are 299' above mean sea level, one found at the confluence of Mustang Creek and Sulphur River, and the other low point being downstream along the banks of Sulphur River at the southeast corner of the ranch. Water Wells: The majority of the ranch is located within the Nacatoch Aquifer providing the new owners an opportunity for a new water well. Other Surface Water: There is an abundance of diverse surface water across the ranch ranging from a live spring, creeks, rivers and sloughs to small ponds scattered throughout; providing both livestock and wildlife with reliable water sources year-round. Wildlife: Whitetail deer stalk the woods on River Crest, along with dove, feral hogs, squirrels, bobcats, coyotes, and a variety of songbirds populate the area. Migratory waterfowl flock to River Crest Lake and the wetlands surrounding it, being the largest body of water in its region and right in the middle of the Central Flyway. Waterfowl have been seen in large numbers on the ranch and have never experienced being hunted on River Crest Lake, using its' diverse yet vast water resources as a wintering ground. It's not uncommon to see Canada geese (year-round) and the occasional flock of snow geese use the lake and surrounding water as a stop off point during their winter migration. Mallards, teal, pintails, gadwalls, and widgeon are the most common species that frequent the ranch. Fisheries: While never officially stocked, River Crest Lake seems to have been naturally stocked. A zero-fishing policy maintained by the current owner has allowed the fish to reproduce in a naturally balancing ecosystem. The lake appears primed and ready for the next owner to implement a fish management plan, a trophy bass lake in the making. Fencing: The pasture areas are fenced with some cross fencing to facilitate rotational grazing. All fences are in fair to good condition. Pastures and Grasses: River Crest boasts abundant, fertile soils fostering productive pastures. Common Bermuda dominates the landscape over native grasses and are highly productive for cattle and good for wildlife habitat. There is over 300+/- acres of grass available for either hay production or grazing on the ranch. The majority of the upland terrain at River Crest is made up of Woodtell fine sandy loam lending well to grass production. Gladewater clay is found mostly within the wooded creek bottoms and low-lying areas. Access: The Eastern border of the ranch has approximately 1.3 miles of frontage along US Hwy 271, providing excellent access to the property.
