Valley Lake Dam History: Valley Dam, which forms Valley Lake, was authorized by the State of Texas in 1959. Construction of the dam was completed in 1961 to provide a cooling water reservoir for the operation of the Valley Steam Electric Station. A Certificate of Adjudication authorized an impoundment of up to 15,000 acre feet of water. The plant has been decommissioned and deconstructed. Valley Dam is a 2,770 long homogeneous earth fill embankment with a maximum height of 55 feet above the original streambed. The impressive and well-engineered dam looks west at sunset, providing amazing views off of Valley Lake. Dam Report: Freese and Nichols, Inc. conducted a dam inspection on September 26, 2017, and provided an updated report in December, 2017 for Valley Lake Dam. Dam Project Description- Valley Dam was authorized by the State of Texas, Permit No. 1939 in 1959. A Certificate of Adjudication authorized an impoundment of up to 15,000 acre-feet of water for industrial purposes. Construction of the dam was completed in 1961 to provide a cooling water reservoir for operation of the Valley Steam Electric Station. The power plant has been decommissioned and demolished. Valley Dam is a 2,770-foot long homogeneous earth fill embankment with a maximum height of 55 feet above the original streambed. The crest of the dam is at elevation 617.5 feet. The upstream slope is 3H:1V with an 8-foot-wide berm at elevation 600 feet. The upstream slope is protected by 24-inch rock riprap from the berm to the crest. The downstream slope is 2.5H:1V with grass slope protection and a 12-foot-wide berm at elevation 590 feet. Seepage control within the embankment is provided by an 18-inch thick sand blanket drain that intersects the toe of the embankment on the downstream slope. The downstream slope has a longitudinal concrete- lined flume (v-ditch) on the berm to collect surface runoff from the upper portion of the slope. Flow in the longitudinal flume is conveyed to the toe of the embankment via four transverse concrete-lined flumes. No instrumentation or survey monitoring programs exist for Valley Dam. The low flow outlet, made operational as of May 2018, consists of an 18-inch diameter gate valve controlled concrete pipe with an upstream invert elevation of 605.75 feet and is located at Station 21+00, near the right abutment of the embankment. The discharge area is protected with a concrete V- shaped channel. The service spillway is a 200-foot wide, concrete-lined channel located in the right abutment with a crest elevation of 611 feet. Two lines of baffle blocks provide energy dissipation at the end of the concrete-lined channel, approximately 50 feet downstream from the crest. The service spillway is separated at its left side by natural topography from the right abutment of the main embankment. There is no emergency spillway at Valley Dam. In Texas, the TCEQ is the regulatory agency responsible for the administration of State dam safety laws. Dams are classified according to the size of the dam and the potential for loss of human life and property damage downstream from the dam in the event of a breach of the dam. The size classification of small, intermediate, or large is based on the storage in the reservoir and the height of the embankment. Intermediate size dams are those with maximum storage between 1,000 and 50,000 acre-feet and/or a maximum height between 40 and 100 feet. Valley Dam, which has a maximum height of 55 feet and maximum storage of 26,500 acre-feet at the top of the dam, is an intermediate size dam. The hazard classification can be low, significant or high. A high hazard dam is usually located where failure can cause serious damage to agricultural, industrial, and commercial facilities, important public utilities, main highways, and railroads. TCEQ criteria define a high hazard structure as one which could potentially impact three or more residential structures, or result in probable loss of seven or more lives. The area downstream of Valley Dam is primarily agricultural land in the floodplain of Brushy Creek and the Red River. There are, however, more than three homes located along Farm to Market (FM) Road 1753 near Brushy Creek about 3.6 miles downstream of the dam, and numerous houses further downstream in the Red River floodplain. The FM 1752 and FM 1753 bridges over Brushy Creek would also be overtopped in the event of a breach of the dam. Valley Dam is therefore classified as a high hazard dam. According to State criteria, as an intermediate size, high hazard dam Valley Dam is required to pass 88 percent of the Probable Maximum Flood (PMF). As determined by the probable maximum flood study and breach analysis completed by Freese and Nichols, Inc. in 2005, Valley Dam passes 100 percent of the PMF event, and is thus hydraulically adequate in its current condition. A full Freese & Nichols, Inc. report, dated December 2017, containing specific details concerning maintenance and repair recommendations can be made available to prequalified Buyers upon request. Terrain: Topography at Valley Lake Ranch is impressive with over 100 feet of elevation change. The high point of ~671feet above mean sea level is found in the southeast corner of the property, and a low point of ~566 feet is found in the northeast corner. The property is mostly treed with sporadic native pastureland desirable for grazing cattle. The landscape lends itself well to recreational land. Highly desirable building sites exist around much of the lake as sunsets and sunrises are truly remarkable from many points overlooking this impressive body of water. Additional Water Sources: There are 3 earthen water wells located on the property. The Neches River Basin aquifer is found below Valley Lake Ranch. A rural water line runs into the approximate center of the ranch from County Road 1752. Brushy creek flows from the northeast corner of the property into Valley Lake. Wildlife: Valley Lake Ranch is home to Whitetail deer, feral hogs, Bald Eagles, dove, Rio Grande Turkey, bobcats, coyotes and of course, waterfowl. Since its inception in 1961, migratory waterfowl have utilized Valley Lake as a wintering ground during peak migration. Features including a major body of water in the central flyway, coupled with natural wetlands in close proximity to the Red River, attract migratory waterfowl populations during peak migration. Fisheries: Valley Lake has proven to be a prolific fishery. Our team fished Valley Lake for 3 days and 6 fishermen caught over 300 Largemouth Bass. Notable fish caught included seven fish over 8 lbs., 4 fish over 7 lbs and 40+ fish between 5-7 lbs. This natural fishery will serve as a solid foundation primed for the next owner to introduce a fish management program capable of contending with the list of renowned and legendary North Texas Bass Fisheries. Additional species of fish caught by the HRC team include Sand Bass, Crappie, Drum and Channel Catfish. Recreation: Water depths at Valley Lake range from highs up to approximately 38 feet and all depths in between that and the shoreline. Multiple coves, inlets, and creek channels compliment open water to create a spectacular, broad recreational offering. In addition to sport fishing and hunting, Valley Lake lends well to jet skiing, water skiing, sail boating, scuba diving, and general motor boating. Kayaking and float fishing can be excellent in the coves and inlets on the lake. Noted Whitetail deer populations, tree cover, topography and natural forbs provide ample opportunity for bow hunting. Fertile soils and sub soils on the property may yield high quality improved wildlife food plots to supplement natural forage components and/or cultivated crops to benefit migratory bird hunting. Fencing: The perimeter of Valley Lake Ranch is fenced. Fencing is in fair to good condition Electricity: Residential electricity runs into the property and is available at multiple points on or near the boundary of the ranch. Minerals: Surface only. Leases: The property is currently leased for grazing. Taxes: Annual property taxes for 2019 were $38,521.74. Buyers & Brokers: Buyers Broker must be present for all showings. Buyers should notify Listing Broker at first contact that they are represented by a cooperating real estate Broker prior to touring the property. We welcome the opportunity to work with other real estate Brokers and their Agents, who are active and currently licensed in the state of Texas.

King County Wolf Creek Ranch
#TX460104
King, 
20,617.00 acres
Historical recollections and facts regarding the ranching industry throughout Texas are of great intrigue, not the least being those outfits carved out of the old Comanche and buffalo haunts of the Texas Rolling Plains. They represent a legacy long past, of a wilder land and wilder people, and one where the voices of yesteryear emanate from the canyons and prairie land, as the restless stirrings of coyotes and whitetail deer resurrect visions from our past in this region often referred to as, “The Big Empty.” We are proud to offer for sale a sizable piece of this legacy in King County, a property whose original ownership dates back to 1898, and is still maintained as a well-managed cattle ranch in the mold of older times. The King County Wolf Creek Ranch originates from the historical JY outfit, ranch property owned by legendary cattleman, R. B. Masterson. In the early 20th century, this 20,617-acre spread was part of the 155,000 acre JY Masterson Ranch. The property is located in north-northeast King County some 20 miles north of Guthrie and 20 miles east-southeast of Paducah. Lubbock, Texas is 100 miles to the west and Amarillo lies 146 miles to the north-northwest. The ranch is accessed by paved Farm to Market frontage. The Wolf Creek Division is a well-managed and productive property that has been under the same current ownership since 2005. The owner’s vast knowledge of range management practices garnered him the 2012 Lone Star Land Steward Award from the Department of Texas Parks and Wildlife for his contribution to optimal range and wildlife management endeavors. Brush control and reduction in the infestation of prickly pear has increased the carrying capacity of the property for cattle as well as the quality and density of varied wildlife species inhabiting the ranch. The entire ranch is in native rangeland with no cultivation included. The ranch is defined by a varied landscape ranging from canyon rims to rolling prairie with elevation extremes of approximately 1,844’ MSL descending to the meandering meadows along creek and river bottoms some 200 feet below. The practice of careful brush sculpting has opened some 10,000 acres of rangeland critical to optimal native grass cover, and offers extensive edge effect browse and effective escape avenues for a healthy and high-quality whitetail population. This extensive brush sculpting also opens portions of the ranch enhancing livestock grazing practices, offering the best of both worlds. Perimeter and interior gates/fences are in excellent condition and an extensive road system offers easy access throughout most of the property in good weather conditions, even into rougher terrain. Almost all interior gates are cattle guards, offering easy transition from one pasture to another. The property has three sets of cattle pens, one 6,000 square foot barn constructed in 2006 featuring 6 electric doors, a hydraulic vehicle lift and work area, an 800 square foot living area with restroom, and an 800 square foot second floor for storage or bedroom use. A second nearby livestock barn features a tack room, feed room and horse pens. Five overhead cake bins are available for dispensing supplemental feed for cattle or wildlife consumption. A 2,200 square foot native stone home was constructed in 2005 featuring 3 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths. Also, a one bedroom, bathroom and kitchen bunkhouse is located north of the barn area. Electric service to the headquarter structures is supplied by South Plains Electric. Approximately 5.3 nautical miles due east of the ranch headquarters is an elegant but simple native stone half-dugout. Replete with porch, stone columns and fireplace, this remote structure offers the flavor from another time as a panoramic view lends itself to uninhabited miles of hills and river meadow, much of which has been sculpted for optimum wildlife habitat, much like the plains of a century before. The Middle Prong of the Wichita River cuts a meandering path through approximately 6 miles of the property and is fed by two wet weather arroyos, Wolf Creek and Dry Creek. Water supply for the entire 20,617 acres sources from the Cottle/King Water Co-op and supports 28 livestock drinking troughs throughout the property. Three lined earthen stock ponds also offer a natural water source. Two windmills in the eastern sector of the ranch, each from 80-150 feet deep, offer marginal water quality and quantity. Constructed east of the headquarters is a firing range offering sight-in for rifles out to 500 yards. A metal shed has been constructed to store materials and furnish shade over a two-man concrete shooting bench. The Wolf Creek Ranch is perhaps one of the last true hunting frontiers in the Rolling Plains. As in decades past when hunting was not a feature on large property holdings, the current owner has never allowed any commercial hunting on his ranch, and has supported his philosophy with security details. With his ranch bordering other outfits such as the historical 6666’s, Masterson JY, Lowrance, and Y’s on three sides, the Wolf Creek property has been insulated from outside hunting pressure for generations. Unique in current times, no supplemental feeding endeavors are in place to enhance the quality or quantity of whitetail, turkey and quail on the ranch, yet antler growth of whitetails on this property suggests a genetic pool unique to the region. Only four whitetail bucks have been allowed to be harvested by friends or the owner in the past few years and these bucks scored from the mid 180’s to 212. Herds of wild hogs also roam the property, affording a reliable food source for the coyotes and bobcats that inhabit the canyons and prairie land. The ranch is realistically offered at $1,095 per acre. No minerals are owned and there is no oil production on the property. The owner will convey all solar and wind generation rights with the property. There is high-speed internet that runs to the house and barn. The Wolf Creek Ranch represents an opportunity to own and enjoy a property that has been very well maintained, improved and managed over the years. We believe this ranch meets all requirements for the rancher, investor or recreation buyer. Call for an inspection, as we believe you will agree.

Thunder River Ranch
#WY216913
Albany, 
26,056.00 acres
- 26,056 total acres (20,502 deeded) - - Trophy elk hunting, mule/whitetail deer, & antelope - - Over 15 miles of trout fishing on the Laramie River & Bluegrass Creek - - Two luxury homes, guest house, & staff housing - - One hour from Laramie & three hours from Denver, CO - “Magnificent” is the adjective that comes to mind when describing the Thunder River Ranch north of Laramie, Wyoming. With over 40 square miles to its credit (20,502 deeded and 5,554 leased acres), the Thunder River Ranch captures the best of Wyoming. Big game hunting and fishing opportunities are unparalleled, and its cattle heritage is as rich as its well-watered grasslands. Well-blocked and extremely private, the Thunder River Ranch is simply breathtaking in its scale and tradition as a true legacy property. The topography of the Thunder River Ranch is “classic Wyoming.” Resting on the southern end of the Laramie Mountains at roughly 7000 feet, the ranch contains many square miles of natural grasslands, broken by picturesque rock outcroppings and scattered aspen and pine woodlands. Views of the rugged Laramie Mountains are visible from nearly every part of the ranch. The Thunder River Ranch is blessed with ideal elk habitat, and it is located in Area 7, one of the nation’s finest trophy elk hunting areas. Bull elk scoring 380+ are common, and the size of the ranch allows hunters plenty of completely private elbow room. Herds in excess of 700 elk are regularly seen on the ranch. Other big game at home on the ranch include both mule and whitetail deer, antelope and black bear. Landowner tags are available for elk, mule deer and antelope. Other wildlife that captures the attention of serious hunters on the ranch includes mountain lion, turkey and a large variety of waterfowl. Straddling an incredible 11 miles of the famed Laramie River, 3.7 miles of Bluegrass Creek and sharing three miles of shoreline with Wheatland Reservoir Number 2, the Thunder River Ranch is one of the best-watered ranches in this part of the state. The river and streams support wild populations of brown, brook and rainbow trout, some of which grow to the 20+ inch class. Bluegrass Creek is a particularly productive tributary that can keep the most avid flyfisher occupied for days. Other small tributaries on the ranch hold wild brook trout in abundance. Multiple ponds, springs and lakes exist throughout the property (some of which hold trophy trout) and many more could be developed. The Big Spring represents an 1892 water right that irrigates meadows west of the river and also offers huge fishery enhancement potential. The Thunder River Ranch has a proven track record as a cattle business. Presently it is home to 1,500 yearling calves for summer grazing, and water rights are in place for 800 acres of irrigated grasslands. The entire ranch is perimeter and cross fenced, and a full complement of well-maintained ranch buildings supports the cattle operation. Four homes grace this exceptional property. Two luxury homes sit near the Laramie River and are the headquarters for the owner and guests, complete with porches ideal for watching elk graze or simply soaking in the 100-mile views of the broad Wyoming horizon. The historic homestead house and classic old school house have been renovated, and make for abundant employee or guest housing. A fourth ranch homestead is located in the backcountry of the ranch, and serves well as a hunting and fishing base camp. As a hub for recreational activities of many varieties, the Thunder River Ranch is unexcelled. Trophy hunting and fishing head the list, but the land is suited to much more. The Laramie River is a huge asset, and rafting, paddle boarding, and kayaking can all be enjoyed on different sections of its 11 miles on the ranch. Rock climbers could spend a
