This 200+/- acre Wayne County Iowa tract sits directly among some of the most sought after whitetail hunting land Iowa has to offer. The seller bought this property in 2005, had a vision, and developed this farm into an absolute habitat paradise. Throughout the immediate area, several properties ranging from 500-1500 acres are all striving towards the same management practices. Each and every single year, 200" whitetails are harvested within this area, and just this year a 220" was harvested 1/2 mile from this property. Entering the gated drive, lies a 40' x 60' steel structure with 28' x 40' fully finished living quarters. This two bedroom and two bath setup is perfect for the weekend getaway, hunting camp, or even a primary residence. The scenic view, wood-burning stove, and barn board wall accents are just a few attributes making this place feel like home. The remaining fully concreted square feet serve as a garage or hobby work area. The 30' x 40' machine shed adds additional storage for farm equipment, ATV's, and all your hunting gear. Directly aside the shed sits a fully restored barn from the 1940's era with newer roof, siding, and electric. Roughly 15,000 trees and shrubs over 33.8 acres were planted in 2005 for the CP22 program. With a payment rate of $89.20 per acre, these acres produce $3,015 annually set to expire 9/30/2019. A well maintained trail system allows undetected entry and exit throughout the farm, and also provides several perfect ambush sites during the rut. The timbered draws serve as connecting points to the surrounding farms making this property on of the best in the area during November! Approximately four acres of hinge cutting and several areas seeded down to native grasses add additional holding power. The bedding habitat on this farm is as good as it gets! Several hidden clover plots and two larger row crop plots established in strategic locations attract the local deer herd. There are multiple hunting options depending on the wind direction for this farm. The current tree-stand and box blind setups make this property ready for any hunter during all of Iowa's seasons. The well fenced 60+/- acres of pasture currently generates $5,000 annual income and could be converted to row-crop, native grasses, or alfalfa. In addition, 20+/- acres of open ground on the southern border could be converted from hay production to the new owners choice. Fishing with the family on one of the stocked ponds would be a great way to spend hot summer days. This turn-key farm has the travel routes and holding power to produce giant Iowa bucks on a yearly basis. Properties of this caliber and location are getting extremely difficult to find!

The historic Circle Ranch located high in the Diablo Mountains of far-West Texas has had only three owners since Obadiah Bounds pioneered the ranch in 1879. He ran the O brand, giving rise to the ranch’s name. The ranch is located in Hudspeth and Culberson Counties, just 11 miles northwest of Van Horn, a 30-minute drive from the ranch south gate to its 6,000-foot jet-accessible airport, hospital, and town conveniences. El Paso, just 100 miles to the west, is a thriving major regional city with an international airport offering one-stop convenience virtually anywhere, domestic and worldwide. The fortress rim of the Diablos acts as a natural barrier for protection and creates a wilderness world unto itself.DescriptionCircle Ranch is as unique as it gets, with four distinct geographic regions or habitat providences combined into one ownership. Chihuahuan Desert, Mountain Canyonlands, High Grasslands, and Rolling Pine Highlands are balanced equally in acreage, providing for a diversity of habitats, plants, animals, and natural beauty. Mountain vistas are found throughout the ranch; as scenic as any part of the Big Bend, with clear views of Guadalupe Peak, the highest point in Texas (8,750 feet). Circle Ranch is the ‘heart’ of the Sierra Diablo Mountains and contains its highest peak – Diablo Peak (6,500 feet). The western escarpments overlook Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin 600,000-acre property. The area views are nothing short of stunning. The Circle’s owners’ management efforts have been dedicated for the past 17 years to improving range condition, habitat, and infrastructure. There is a road network, much of it milled for easy traveling throughout the ranch, and an extensive new water system that supports more than 200 watering stations. Subsoiling efforts on more than 8,000 acres and erosion control measures are designed within a holistic management philosophy, and have created healthier soil, more rainfall retention, better grassland cover, and more forage for wildlife and livestock. Livestock has been an essential tool in achieving the restoration goals and the ranch has an extensive pasture system for rotating cattle in a planned grazing system. The improvements are just as impressive as the landscape, located within a protected, sweeping valley with steep slope monument mountains, scattered all around a central headquarters complex. This is a family working and adventure ranch designed as a hacienda with interconnecting walls and buildings, creating a beautifully landscaped complex of houses, buildings, barns, patios, gardens, and lawns all under a forest of evergreen and deciduous trees on a drip irrigation system. The ranch, with its improvements, is immaculately maintained by an impressive local staff and is ready day-one for entertainment or quiet family enjoyment.Improvements Housing Main house:4-BR, 2-B, dining, living, kitchen, office, gun area, features oak floorsa full porch overlooks the Sierra Diablos.Constructed with rock quarried on the ranch.Large basement includes laundry, work benches, freezer, gun safe, food and wine storage, mouse-resistant clothes storageCommander’s quarters (CQ):Private walled garden and home.CQ is an exact replica of an Historic Fort Davis officer’s house.Bedroom and sitting room are connected by 25′ foyer/bar/coat room with gun closets, gun safe.2-baths,14’ ceilings, oak floorsSchool house:1BR with bunks1 bathGuest house1-BR, 1-LR, 1-B,full porch and enclosed garden front and rearAll houses are fully air conditioned and heatedAll baths are new or updatedAutomatic propane-powered electric back-up generator system able to run the entire HQ compound with all systems operating – summer or winterAutomatic sprinkler systemsProfessionally designed gardens300 transplanted treesTwo mechanically renovated walk-in cool roomsSmall weather station connecting to cellphones by an app for remote viewing.BarnVernacular Far West Texas historic structure, built for a working ranchCovered stallsTack roomFeed RoomWorkshop and benchesRetrofitted with rollup end doorsWinches for game butchering and/or vehicle servicingHorse breaking circleAdjacent horse pensMultiple water troughsDog runsFilled with 90-years of ranching paraphernaliaRifle Range 1,500-meter monumented rifle and pistol range with reactive steel targets and static target boards 25-yard pistol with steel targets 500-meter NRA match compliant silhouettes4-skeet trapsStorage area for targets, spotting scopes, shooting bagsCovered shooting positions with lounging, cooking, viewing areasThis is a military-grade range designed by Army and Marine long-distance rifle instructors and snipersHabitatThe Diablo Mountains are truly a high desert “Sky Island” with cool summers and monsoon rains. It is a range of mountains bridging the Guadalupe Mountains to the north with the Eagles, Van Horn, Sierra Viejas, Chinatis to the south and beyond into Mexico. These Mountain Islands are providing extremely important functions as a habitat island, with intermountain ridge lines and valleys serving as corridors for wildlife migration, especially between Texas and Mexico along the Rio Grande.Numerous bird species that are normally associated with the Rocky Mountains and/or Mexican Highlands are known to occur within this island of montane habitat. Hummingbirds, neotropical songbirds, eagles, hawks, and many more creates a year-round birding paradise.The climate and soils support a mix of desert and mountain vegetation from scrublands to grasslands, to pinon/juniper and oaks uplands. Grasses include Sideoats, Blue, Black, Hairy, and Chino grama as well as Cane Bluestem, Green Sprangle-Top, Tobosa, and many others. Along the canyon floors, and especially on the north facing hillside slopes, there are Piñon Pine, Juniper, daggers, and oaks.A variety of flowering plants and cacti provide habitat for migrating and resident birds, bats, and butterflies. The four distinct habitat providences on the ranch created by elevation, slope, topography, soils, and vegetation provides a diversity rarely found anywhere in Texas. Quail hunting in the Desert, Big Horn Sheep in the Mountain Canyonlands, Elk and Deer in the Rolling Pine Highlands, and Pronghorn in the High Grasslands. Circle Ranch has it all!WildlifeThe Circle Ranch, with its combination of geographic regional habitats, provides for the perfect location to manage and enjoy a variety for game and non-game species. Blue Quail hunting is second to none, as is the Desert Mule Deer, Elk, Big Horn Sheep, and Pronghorn. The ranch has a Level III Managed Land Deer Permit, providing for an extended season for Mule Deer and the opportunity for better management of the herd. Water distribution and road access, combined with excellent range condition and habitat provides for some of the best hunting in the state. Add the jaw-dropping mountain vistas, Circle stands alone.

Lone Pine RanchFOR ALL PHOTOS, INTERACTIVE MAPS AND THE MOST COMPLETE INFORMATION AVAILABLE VISIT HALL AND HALL PROPERTY WEBSITEThere is nothing the least bit contrived about this place. Lone Pine Ranch is the land legacy of stock market titan, Dean Witter. Authentic is the most fitting single word description of this historic landholding spanning across Trinity and Mendocino counties in Northern California. Comprised of three large ranches purchased by Mr. Witter starting in 1942, this ranch is gargantuan in size and nonpareil in natural beauty. With over 26,600 deeded acres all in one contiguous block, it is supported by viable cattle and timber operations. The ranch is conservatively estimated to have a carrying capacity of over 800 cows and approximately 30% of the ranch is a tenderly managed timber resource. There are over 16.5 miles of frontage on Northern California's Eel River, which covets National Wild and Scenic designation. Salmon and steelhead still migrate into these waters from the Pacific Ocean, and resident wildlife includes plentiful populations of elk, blacktail deer, pig, bear and quail. The old-time improvements convey the sense of a living museum. The main home, built in the mid-1940s, overlooks the Eel River canyon from a vantage point that still looks today much like it did when Mr. Witter made the decision to build here. The creak of the screen doors is an auditory time machine that journeys back to the innocent joys of childhood.

The ranch also has a small amount of US Hwy. 290 Frontage.The Live Oak Ranch is located at the junction of Live Oak Creek and the Pecos River. The terrain is very diverse and consists of a variety of land variations from flat meadow lands along the Pecos River to high ridge top hills and deep canyons on the north side of the property. These large canyons and high hills are typical of the transition area between the Edwards Plateau and Stockton Plateau regions of Texas. Traversing through the middle of the ranch is Live Oak Creek, a wet weather creek that has an immense history dating back to the operational days of Ft. Lancaster. Located at the South end of Live Oak Creek, close to the Pecos River and Ft. Lancaster, is the mile long live oak mot that has been written about on many occasions by the early explorers and settlers of Texas. There is a combination of large mature live oak, shin oak, mesquite and juniper trees located throughout the property. The deep canyons and valleys on the ranch are an amazing source of topographical change, offering extensive elevation variation.The Live Oak Ranch is a working ranch that is watered by an extensive system of water wells, water storage tanks, and water troughs.

Lancaster which was established in 1856 as an infantry post to help protect the westward expansion of the United States.

Also located on the Live Oak Ranch is the famous “state of Texas” rock, which sits close to four mile crossing on the Pecos River. Four Mile crossing was an additional river crossing that was used extensively in the passage of the Pecos River in the westward expansion movement.Wildlife on the Live Oak Ranch consist of whitetail deer, rio grande turkey, quail, dove and an occasional mule deer. This is a great property offering good hunting and the ability to fish for multiple species of fish in the Pecos River.The Sellers are conveying a ¼ interest in the mineral estate that is owned by the Sellers.

This productive operation runs very efficiently with limited equipment and includes more than 3,770 acres of dryland hay ground. The natural beauty of this part of Northwestern Montana is world renowned, and North Fork Ranch’s commanding views of the famed Chief Mountain, the Canadian Rockies, the eastern part of Glacier National Park and the Rocky Mountain Front is an imposing and spectacular backdrop to the highly productive deep green rough fescue and timothy grasses, aspen groves and crystal clear waters on the ranch.
