Located on the banks of the Grand River southeast of Lemmon South Dakota, the Turkey Track Ranch consists of 3,080± deeded acres plus a 233 AUM Grand River Grazing Association allotment. With approximately 12 miles of the Grand River meandering through the center of the ranch, the cottonwood and ash tree-lined river bottoms provide unparalleled natural protection and wildlife habitat throughout. Fenced and cross-fenced into 23 pastures, this ranch is set up for a very efficient and intensive grazing program with live water in 21 of the pastures. The ranch has a 518-acre water license from the State of South Dakota that ensures a reliable feed base for the ranch while enhancing the wildlife habitat. There is a very functional set of improvements that make up the ranch headquarters which features a three bedroom, four bath home built in 1991, a shop, barns, corrals, a 700 head feedlot, and a roping arena. The ranch has three wells that supply water to the headquarters as well as to the three tanks in the few pastures that do not have live year-round water. In addition, the ranch has rural water provided by the Perkins County Rural Water District. The riparian area of the Grand River is home to upland birds including pheasants, turkeys and sharp-tail grouse as well as many mule and whitetail deer. The Turkey Track Ranch has many attributes that make it appealing to ranchers and sportsmen alike.
