ICON GLOBAL EXCLUSIVE LISTED FOR $180MM - 25% MINERAL STAKE 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.

The Eagle Mountain/Carrizo Mountain Ranches are actually two nearby distinct properties that are connected by an improved caliche county road and miles of a paved/concrete private easement road linking the ranches with easy access. Similar to the Davis Mountains and the Chisos Mountains of the Chihuahuan Desert, this mountain range functions as a sky island habitat, with intermountain ridge lines and valleys serving as corridors for wildlife migration, especially between Texas and Mexico along the Rio Grande.

Known as the Wildhorse Ranch and consisting of nearly 21,000 acres, located immediately northeast of the city of Van Horn. Conveniently located near I-10 and State Highway 54, the ranch is dramatically set between the Baylor Mountains to the west, and the Delaware Mountains to the east, with convenient additional access along FM 2185. The lesser and nearer formations of the Beach, Apache and, Wylie Mountains form the more immediate skylines on nearly every side and form the visible boundaries of the Wild Horse Flat. The ranch generally sits on the level and fertile plains but gives rise to the west into the foothills of the Baylor Mountains. The majority of the subject property is located within the 100‐year floodplain, according to FEMA Maps. The floodplain is primarily caused by Wildhorse Creek, Sulphur Creek, and Hackberry Creek, which are wet weather creeks accommodating drain waters from nearby mountainous terrain. However, it should be noted that there is a large floodwater diversion dam on the property, measuring nearly eight and a half miles in the western portion constructed by Culberson County to assist in draining stormwater southwestward to feed into the lower end of Hackberry Creek. Perimeter fencing is in exceptional shape in nearly all parts, and cross-fencing is mostly adequate. One domestic water well serves the ranch with an extensive piping system to water troughs across the pastures. One set of cattle pens on FM 2185 serves the ranch. Interior ranch roads are fair but largely offset by extensive paved frontages on multiple sides. A 50 X 100 shop building and a 40 x 100 Quonset barn add to the function of the ranch. Wildhorse Ranch, though at one time largely irrigated as farmland, reportedly has no availability of acquiring historical use water permits. However, it should be noted that a purchaser may have the option of acquiring limited non‐historical use water permits upon application with the groundwater district. The Facts: ~ Fenced Rangeland ~ Well-developed water for livestock ~ Excellent visibility ~ Exterior fencing in excellent shape ~ 2.6 miles of frontage on State Highway 54 ~ Seven miles of FM 2085 frontage

The MV2 Ranch is arguably one of the finest quail and wildlife ranches in the country. This is the place where range conditions, mother nature, and true land stewardship have come into remarkable alignment creating an ideal ranch and recreational mecca for the true sportsman – an offering on the market that represents a very rare opportunity. The property was once part of the famed 67,000-acre Mesa Vista Ranch, and is home to some of the greatest native bobwhite quail in Texas. This northeastern Panhandle ranch has more than sufficient water to continue to support a healthy bird and wildlife population, with one main feature being a 7-mile water line that runs 24/7 with sprinkler heads every 1,000 feet. Quail are the focus, yet the ranch also boasts a very healthy herd of mule and whitetail deer as well! LOCATION The ranch is located in west central Roberts County, about 25 miles north of Pampa, about 50 miles north of I-40, and it is west of Canadian. Access to the property is via county-maintained Reynolds Ranch Road, which stretches roughly 3.5 miles north from Highway 70 and leads into the south entry of the ranch. This road also serves as access for the Mesa Vista Ranch Club, and it is highly improved. A second access route from Highway 70 is further north to enter the ranch on its east side. Pampa hotels and the 5,800’ airstrip are 15 minutes from the ranch. TOPOGRAPHY, RANGELAND & HABITAT The MV2 Ranch is a native grass ranch with the predominant species being buffalo grass, bluestem, gramagrass and Indiangrass. It also has significant areas of rabbitbrush, chickasaw plum, ragweed, and other grasses that have been infused into the ecosystem over the years. Soil types are primarily fine sandy loams. Two-track roads meander all throughout the ranch to access the entire property and have been maintained and shredded for ease of travel. Cattle have not been on the vast majority of this ranch for at least 18 years. WILDLIFE Approximately 30 years ago Boone Pickens started a vision of creating the worlds greatest quail hunting, and this ranch is a key segment of that storied land holding. Because of the historical, expansive care and management of the quail and range conditions this remains one of the best wild quail habitats. A fall 2023 game survey by one of Texas top wildlife biologists, resulted in an impressive flushing of over 130 coveys! The very diverse landscape of natural habitat is also home to whitetail deer, mule deer, antelope, blue quail, and doves. 200+/- quail feeders and 5 600lb protein/corn feeders also supplement the wildlife. IMPROVEMENTS There are about 30 miles of good fences, about 1/3 of which has been built within the last 3 years. This allows for smart pasture rotation should the next owner decide to bring cattle back into the ranch, which has not been done in 18 years. A two-bedroom house is currently being remodeled at the headquarters area overlooking a beautiful lake and quiet setting. Ask broker for more details. WATER The focal point of the ranch water system on top of the Ogallala aquifer is the 4-inch waterline that runs approximately 7 miles along the Dry Creek area of the ranch. This is an incredible and diverse topographical area for the ranch that runs north to south from one end of the ranch to the other. A sprinkler head every 1,000 feet provides moisture and water for quail and wildlife all year long and this runs off of a water well on the south end of the ranch. Roberts County receives 23 inches of rain, on average, per year, and 13 inches of snow per year. Approximately 10 water wells. The ranch is allowed for up to 50 additional water wells throughout the ranch to provide additional water for wildlife and livestock (up to 17gpm). Natural stock ponds, potholes, and pools. 12 fallow pivot fields. Full details on all water can be provided by Broker. MINERALS There is production on the ranch with about 6 well site locations. Minerals are not being offered with this sale, but a small portion of the mineral estate may be available with an acceptable contract. Ask broker for more details. This ranch is being co-marketed with Mark McMillan.

Spanning approximately 7,986 acres in the Rolling Plains of West Texas, the Sugarloaf Ranch boasts a private oasis with grand views, surface water, flowing creeks, and a massive lodge built for entertainment. The ranch is about a 3-hour drive from DFW, located a short distance from Crowell, Texas and with direct access to Highway 70.

WILDLIFE The Sugarloaf is bordered to the east by the high-fenced, 1,500-acre Six Mile Hill Ranch and to the north by the 11,500-acre US Army Corps of Engineers land, resulting in extremely low hunting pressure that has allowed the ranch to be inhabited by a considerable population of mule and white-tailed deer.

Blue Goose River Ranch consists of flat, fertile farmland with mesquite patches on higher elevations breaking into deep cedar-covered gorges. Twists and turns in the terrain paired with scattered knobs create valleys turning into sand-bottomed creeks. These creeks define the canyons as they merge with the North Wichita River and split the ranch. Whitetail buck ranging from 130"-150" inches are standard in Foard and Knox County, while 7,750 secluded acres with a river bottom habitat allow some mature animals to reach the 170+ inch marker. Several large flocks of Rio Grande turkey roost and thrive in the vast hackberry trees and dense chinaberry thickets. Ducks, geese, and other waterfowl are abundant due to the 3.4 miles of the meandering river and 48 bodies of water ranging from shallow grass tanks to a couple of acres of drought-proof water. Blue Goose River Ranch is a large cattle operation with outfitter potential. Headquarters sits in Foard County on the Northern 3,000 acres initially purchased in 2002.

Across the river was acquired first, a valley etched out by Black Top Creek, including Blue Goose Hunting Camp, famed with stories of hunting lore. Then, a few other neighbors were added, spreading south to include the majority of Buffalo Creek and some badlands to add to the mysticism of this wild country. This cattle ranch has excellent perimeter fencing, being mostly 5-strand barbed wire. Each pasture is cross-fenced for rotational grazing to optimize the native grass production. This practice has boosted the local quail habitat and assisted in their comeback. Separate fields within the fenced cultivation and pastures contain a water source for cattle and wildlife. A final addition, the "Damland" added a wide, short canyon created by Bluff Creek and butted the ranch up to Truscott Brine Lake. 29+ access gates are strategically placed on the 12+ miles of county-maintained road frontage to optimize cattle rotations, farming, and access to blinds. Blue Goose River Ranch's final acreage came to 7,750, now available for the first time as one large ranch isolated in an area of Texas historically and currently known for vast swaths of land dedicated to cattle and hunting.

Summary: Remote, private, protected, big, wild, scenic, unique, extraordinary. These are just a few adjectives that quickly come to mind when considering the Long Hollow Ranch and the many facets and features this Hill Country River Region dandy has to offer. Blessed with a collection of live water, monstrous elevation changes, excellent habitat, abundant wildlife, and simple natural beauty, this is sure to be a property that will grab your attention and cause your imagination to run wild. Whether it’s during the day or a dark star filled Texas night sky, one could spend a lifetime here just taking in and enjoying the many views. Location: Located in the Hill Country River Region of Texas, the Long Hollow Ranch is found in northwestern Uvalde County, approximately 19 miles northwest of Uvalde, Texas, 20 miles south of Camp Wood, Texas, and is an easy hour and forty-five-minute drive west of San Antonio and two hours southwest of Austin. Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone - Conservation Easement: Scattered across portions of northern Uvalde County, there are estimated to be over 100,000 acres of ranch land in Conservation Easements held by the City of San Antonio for preservation and protection of the Edwards Aquifer recharge zone. Long Hollow Ranch and neighboring ranches to the north, east, and west constitute a contiguous block of approximately 20,000 acres that lie within these Conservation Easements. Often looked upon in a negative light by buyers because of restrictions that significantly limit the surface owner’s use of the property, this Conservation Easement is quite the opposite. While there are some restrictions that prevent development and other uses, this may very well be the least burdensome and most pro surface owner conservation easement you’ll ever encounter. The property may be ranched, hunted, fished, and enjoyed recreationally in almost any form you might want. The conservation easement also allows for two “building envelopes” within the 7,532.21 acres where you could build your private ranch home, hunting lodge, and/or cabin, and create your very own retreat to the country. As large acreage ranches become more and more scarce with continued sprawl and development, we see this as a very positive and appealing aspect of this ranch, as it and the aforementioned neighboring properties will remain undeveloped, and very much just as you see them today. Retaining that private, remote, wild feel that in many areas is only going to continue to be increasingly harder to find. To top it off, our experience in working with the good folks who oversee the Edwards Aquifer Protection Program for the City of San Antonio has been nothing but positive, and you very much get the sense that they view this as a partnership in working with the land owners. Contact agent for additional details regarding the Conservation Easement. Terrain: Long Hollow Ranch provides ~550’ of phenomenal elevation change and vista views as far as the eye can see, with everchanging topography and diverse terrain. The ranch has an irregular shape, but at its widest point measures ~ five (5) miles east and west and the same in length at ~ five (5) miles north and south. If that’s not big enough, couple it together with the ever changing and massive topographical features on the property, and you’ll understand why it drives even larger than the acreage suggests. The terrain ranges from deep hardwood and brush covered canyons, to high rocky ridgelines, outcroppings, points, and plateaus, with tree cover and other forms of vegetation that include live oak, elm, pecan, black walnut, sycamore, hackberry, chinaberry, juniper, pinion pine, Texas mountain laurel, guajillo, coyotillo, cenizo, desert willow, catclaw acacia, leatherstem, Texas persimmon, huisache, blackbrush, sotol, Spanish dagger, and many other varieties. Comanche, Tonkawa, and Lipan Apache are believed to have long ago inhabited the area and their past presence on the ranch is evidenced by artifacts that have been found. River Frontage and Additional Water Features: Over 3,000’ of beautiful, easily accessible, and highly sought after Nueces River frontage creates the northwesterly boundary of the ranch. Long Hollow, a wet weather creek, meanders through the ranch from east to west toward the Nueces River for approximately 2.35 miles and then continues for another ~1.74 miles as a property boundary. This rock bottom water way gathers and grows wider as multiple branches connect and feed into it as it carves its way through the landscape. Long Hollow will carry an abundance of water in rainy conditions, and over time has created some special features such as seasonal waterfalls and plunge pools. It’s also a great place to walk/hike and discover caves, rock outcrops, overhangs, and other unique geologic features. Numerous other wet weather tributaries of the Nueces River begin on and traverse through the ranch, providing additional seasonal water sources for wildlife and livestock. Water Wells and Storage: Two submersible pump water wells, elevated storage tank, and a network of buried water lines provide a good supply of fresh water thru the property for livestock and wildlife. This system could be tapped into for domestic use to supply a home, or additional water wells drilled if desired. Wildlife and Hunting: An abundance of native wildlife call the ranch home including whitetail deer, Rio Grande turkey, dove, bobwhite quail, hog, javelina, coyote, fox, and bobcat. A variety of exotic species also freely roam the ranch and region, and include some very impressive trophy axis and audad. Whether it’s from one of the many blind and feeder setups, bow stand, spot and stalk, long range, or even a high rack, the ranch and its landscape offer owner and guests a variety of hunting options to choose from. Roads and Fences: A portion of the property fronts along TX Hwy 55 where direct access off of pavement is provided to the gated ranch entrance. From there, an extensive network of improved all-weather ranch roads, unimproved pasture roads and trails provide excellent travel throughout the property. These roads and trails provide easy access to and along the Nueces River frontage, or up and along the tops of mountain ridges and plateaus. Approximately 3,600 feet of old railroad bed runs along the western portion of the ranch near the east bank of the Nueces River. This long since abandoned and removed rail line was once part of a ~37 mile stretch of railroad owned by the Uvalde & Northern Railway that connected the towns of Camp Wood and Uvalde. Reaching its peak production around 1924, the line was primarily used as a means to transport cedar posts out of the Camp Wood area, down to Uvalde, and then to markets in San Antonio and points further east. The line was removed in 1941, but remains of its presence still mark the land today and are etched as part of the history of the ranch. Some of the old railroad bed now serves as a ranch road along the western portion of the property. Some new boundary fence is currently under construction and once completed the perimeter will all be low fenced and in good condition to hold and turn livestock. There is some cross fencing in place and a set of working pens located near the middle of the ranch. Utilities: Medina Electric Cooperative provides electrical service to the property. Easements: In addition to the conservation easement, an electric transmission line easement crosses a portion of the ranch with minimal impact. Property Taxes: The property is Ag-Exempt and property taxes for 2023 are estimated to be $8,860. Airport: The nearest public airport is Garner Field Airport in Uvalde which provides an asphalt runway measuring 5,256’ in length and averages ~34 aircraft per day. It’s also a great stop for lunch at the Hangar 6 Air Café. Area: Local area attractions include the Nueces, Frio, and Sabinal Rivers, Lake Nueces, Garner State Park, Frio Bat Flight (the second largest bat population in the world that is open to public viewing), Memorial Park Golf Course in Uvalde, Frio Valley Ranch Golf Club at Concan, and of course one of the most famous nine-hole courses in the country, Utopia Golf, that gained national attention from the book and then movie, “Seven Days in Utopia”, as well as various other aspects of local interest, none of which overshadow the natural beauty of this part of our great state.
