Boone Pickens' Mesa Vista Ranch: Over 100 Square Miles of Prime Eastern Texas Panhandle Ranch with Outstanding Improvements
#230169
Roberts, 
64,809.00 acres
With the recent passing of Boone Pickens, the listing price of the Mesa Vista Ranch has been reduced from the original price of $250,000,000 to $220,000,000. LOCATION: The Mesa Vista Ranch is located in Roberts County in the Eastern Texas Panhandle. The ranch is located about 30 miles north of Pampa, Texas, and approximately 85 miles northeast of Amarillo. ACRES: 64,809 +/- Acres HISTORY: In 1971, Boone purchased approximately 2,900 acres along the south side of the Canadian River in Roberts County, Texas. Over the years, Boone began to assemble additional adjoining land positioned along the Canadian River corridor, and today the Mesa Vista Ranch comprises over 100 square miles of prime Eastern Texas Panhandle ranch land. As Boone's assemblage continued, he spent millions and millions of dollars to make Mesa Vista one of the best improved ranches in the United States. He used cutting edge conservation practices to enhance the wildlife on the property. Today Boone proudly boasts that the Mesa Vista Ranch is, "the world's best quail hunting." PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: As Boone expanded his holdings, his focus always remained centered along the Canadian River. Today, the Mesa Vista Ranch stretches approximately 25 miles along the south side of the Canadian River. This lush river bottom land creates the centerpiece for the property, but the ranch features an unmatched variety of land types ranging from rolling sand hills to elevated ridges, mesa points and gently rolling, open prairie lands. The river bottom and numerous major drainages support abundant massive cottonwood trees, as well as willows, hackberry trees and others. Much of the river bottom is sub-irrigated and suitable for native hay production. Live spring water is found throughout several of the major drainages. In an effort to enhance wildlife on the property, over the years, Boone has been a leader in conservation practices that are now followed by many other sportsmen in the country. As a testament to Boone's conservation efforts, in 2008 he was named the recipient of the prestigious Park Cities Quail Unlimited Lifetime Sportsman Award. Boone maintains a small cow herd on the ranch, 400-500 cows Boone has placed over 1,000 quail feeders and numerous deer feeders on the ranch. He has created a number of food plot areas and added a network of buried waterlines with small water outlets to create wet areas for quail. LODGE COMPOUND: The Lodge, along with multiple support structures is located in a manicured, tree covered "park-like" setting. It is common to view whitetail deer and turkey in the mornings and afternoons, with turkey roosting in the trees in the late evening. This Lodge Compound has been the major gathering area for Boone's family and guests over the years. It has served an important role as a place where corporate heads have met to discuss and craft multi-million-dollar business transactions, politicians and large donors have gathered for political events. Few if any facilities can match the beauty of the Lodge Compound. Initial construction on the Lodge began in 1988, with numerous updates and additions added over the years. Presently, the Lodge itself comprises in excess of 25,000 square feet with an additional approximately 10,000 square feet of porches and patio areas. Surrounding the Lodge is significant landscaping, in-ground sprinkler systems, and underground electrical service. Adding to the ambiance of the Lodge are numerous bronze sculptures tastefully positioned on the grounds. In addition to the Lodge and support structures, the compound features a lighted tennis court, a skeet/trap range, and a small golf course with two fairways and greens and nine tee boxes. The Family House, which was completed in 2009, is located west of the Main Lodge. This house is a two-story with a third floor lounging and viewing room. The Family House contains over 6,000 square feet of living area and approximately 2,500 square feet of porches and patios. The Pub is located north of the Family House and is a two-story structure containing approximately 2,250 square feet of air-conditioned area. The Gun Room is a freestanding, single-story structure containing over 400 square feet. This building was constructed in 2005 and features a lounge area, bathroom, and kitchenette. The Gate House, adjacent to the golf course, is a single family, two-story residence with partial basement. This house has approximately 2,300 square feet of living area, an attached two-car garage, and a deck area. In 2007 Boone constructed a charming Chapel located on the north end of the Lodge Compound area. This chapel is situated along the banks of a flowing creek and lake area. Adjacent to the Chapel is the Memory Garden, which was constructed in 2014. There are pergolas and a beautiful stair-cased waterfall feature behind the structure. In addition to the above, the Lodge Compound includes other support structures such as storage buildings and the Hilltop House, which is a children's play house. Overall, the Lodge Compound area is the most user-friendly facility on the ranch. It is designed to house large groups for entertaining or business functions. LAKE HOUSE: Boone's Lake House has been featured in Architectural Digest Magazine and Cowboys and Indians Magazine. The Lake House contains approximately 11,500 square feet of living area and over 3,800 square feet of porches and patios. The front entry door was originally the front door to Bing Crosby's home. The upper level of the home features a large living/great room with fireplace, dining area, master bedroom and bath, 1 1/2 bathrooms, kitchen, utility room, and elevator. A spiral staircase with stone imported from France leads to the lower level where there are two guest bedrooms, three bathrooms, wine cellar and tasting room, office, exercise room, utility room, cedar closet, mechanical room, and storm/safe room. Outdoor balcony railings are bronze and all balconies and porch areas overlook astonishing water features, such as lakes, ponds, waterfalls, and aqueducts. The landscaping, topography features, and water enhancements make the Lake House truly "fit for a king." AIRPORT AND HANGAR: The airport is located on the western portion of the ranch. The runway is approximately 6,000 feet long and 100 feet wide. The airport facility was designed and built with FAA approval and meets all of their requirements and regulations. Approach lights are installed along the runway. The runway itself is constructed of one-foot thick concrete. This airport runway is designed to handle most any size private aircraft. Adjacent to the runway is a 52,600-square foot concrete tarmac, which connects the airport to the hangar. The hangar facility contains approximately 25,000 square feet with epoxy coated concrete floor. It features a heated electric hangar door opening system, an attractive lounge and restroom area downstairs and a two-bedroom, two-bathroom pilot's apartment upstairs. The entire airport complex is located within an 8-foot-high game fence constructed of 2 1/2 inch steel posts with heavy gauge net wire. In addition, the facility is equipped with a standby 350KW generator system for auxiliary power. DOG KENNEL: The Dog Kennel is located east of the Lodge complex, between the Lodge and the highway. The Kennel contains approximately 11,000 square feet of usable kennel area, with approximately 3,600 feet being enclosed and air conditioned. There are 40 chain-link dog pens, 20 on each side of a concrete center alleyway. The Kennel is equipped with full office facilities, a large meat processing-center. The facility includes a veterinary lab, upper level storage, overhead crane and bathroom. WATER FEATURES: The Canadian River itself generally forms the north boundary of the ranch for a distance of approximately 25 miles. This river bottom is wide and fertile with a shallow water table. In some areas, standing pockets of water are common and portions of the river bottom are sub-irrigated. In the early 2000's Boone began a massive water enhancement project, likely never before conceived or duplicated by a private citizen. By dredging and building a chain of dams, waterfalls, lakes, and other water enhancements, Boone created possibly the largest individual water park ever envisioned. In addition to the countless lakes and ponds, he created a flowing, man-made creek called "Boone's Creek," which basically parallels the Canadian River. By dredging into the standing water table in the Canadian River bottom, this creek was formed. Boone, however, was not satisfied with standing water in the creek and wanted ever flowing running water throughout the creek bottom. With the use of well water injected into the creek, Boone's Creek flows several thousand gallons per minute throughout this stretch of roughly 12 miles of creeks, lakes, waterfalls and ponds, all of which are man-made. With a system of pumps and pipelines, much of this water can be recirculated and used over and over. Without question, Boone has created an unmatched oasis in the Texas Panhandle. WILDLIFE: The Mesa Vista Ranch supports a variety of wildlife. Whitetail deer thrive in the productive creek bottom areas and mule deer are found throughout the sandhills, broken ridges, and mesa points on the southeast side of the ranch. Aoudad are also viewed from time to time in this rougher portion of the property. Antelope are found on the open plains country on the southwest side of the ranch. Besides quail, dove are also abundant and water fowl are seasonally present on many of the lakes. Hundreds and hundreds of turkeys are common throughout the tree-covered bottom lands. Most all of the lakes have been stocked with a variety of fish, and fishing is reported to be excellent. The southern portion of the Mesa Vista Ranch is improved with pivot sprinkler systems and irrigation wells. Portions of this land are planted in a combination of wheat and millet, providing outstanding habitat for pheasant. All in all, with the water features, varying terrain, and conservation measures in place on the Mesa Vista Ranch, it would be hard to find a better recreational property in this area of Texas. RANCH RESOURCES: Roberts County is known to have prolific saturated thickness of quality Ogallala ground water, along with substantial oil and gas resources. The Mesa Vista Ranch is located in an area of prolific quality ground water, being in the Ogallala Water Formation. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of acres of water rights have been sold in Roberts County for municipal water purposes. Recent commercial water sales in the area indicate that water rights have a commercial value in the range of $400 - $500 per acre. As previously discussed, Boone acquired the Mesa Vista Ranch in a series of purchases over the years. Boone obtained water rights in the earlier purchases, but in more recent years, as he acquired adjoining land, the commercial water rights were already sold, due to their commercial value. Overall, Boone owns approximately 42,000 acres of water rights, which will convey with the sale. This is considered to be an extremely valuable asset. In addition to this water resource, minerals are also considered to be a valuable resource in Roberts County. Like the water, Boone obtained a portion of the minerals on the earlier land purchases, but as he expanded to the east and west in more recent years, he was unable to obtain minerals with these acquisitions. There is scattered oil and gas activity on the Mesa Vista Ranch. All of Boone's owned mineral interests will convey. In 2015, Boone's oil and gas royalty income totaled approximately $2,560,000. In 2016, with oil and gas prices declining, the total royalty income dropped to approximately $771,000. For the first nine months of 2017 the royalty income is approximately $541,000. Again, all owned water rights, all owned mineral rights, and royalty will convey with the property. There are a number of large, operating wind farms located in the Texas Panhandle. All wind generation royalty rights are also included. PRICE AND REMARKS: The Boone Pickens' Mesa Vista Ranch is offered for sale at a price of $220,000,000. It seems impossible to comprehend all of the improvements made to this property, whether it is structural improvements, water enhancements, landscaping, wildlife conservation features, or others. As example, thousands of tons of landscaping rock, trees, shrubbery, plants, etc. were imported to the property over the years. Early on, Boone hired Tommy Ford, an architect from Dallas, Texas, to help in the planning, drafting, and construction of the many improvements placed on the ranch. Together, Boone and Tommy had the vision to take raw ranch land and transform this property into what now represents Mesa Vista Ranch. In a recent conversation with Tommy Ford, he estimated that the total volume of building materials, landscaping rocks, trees, and other enhancements delivered to the ranch would exceed 120 trains, with each train load containing 110 cars of materials. Having overseen most all of the major structural construction on the property, Tommy estimated replacement cost of over $140,000,000, not counting the added cost of dredging and developing the lakes and creek water systems on the property. To our knowledge, no other ranch can replicate Boone's Mesa Vista Ranch. He has spent nearly 50 years transforming this Texas Panhandle Ranch into a wildlife paradise with spectacular water features and improvements fit for a king. The sale of the Mesa Vista Ranch is basically "turn key," including all rolling stock, equipment, pick-up trucks, hunting vehicles, farming equipment, furnishings, bird dogs, etc. The only exclusions are Boone's personal effects, livestock, and his vast art collection. The livestock are available to be purchased separately, as is the majority of the art collection. "You do everything to make the land perfect, hoping the next owner has the same passion." - T. Boone Pickens Qualified buyers can schedule a showing of the property by contacting the Brokers. Offered Jointly and Exclusively By Chas. S. Middleton and Son and Hall and Hall

Venado Grande Ranch
#421174
King, 
22,730.00 acres
The Venado Grande is the kind of ranch that a true sportsman or cattleman will equally love to own. Contiguously pieced together 22,730 ± acres derived from the historic Fant, Spikebox, and Moorehouse Ranches, situated in the heart of Big Ranch Country. This amazing property has been owned and operated by an oilman with an open checkbook, no expense spared anywhere. Millions of dollars’ worth of heavy equipment have been utilized to mechanically remove invasive brush, improve road networks, install wildlife foodplots and enhance grazing pastures for cattle. The ranch water system appears to be in excellent condition and the structural improvements are first class. All of the exterior fencing is either new or in very good condition. Numerous new cross fences have been installed to aid in the ease of the cattle operation from a rotation standpoint. LOCATION The Venado Grande is located just west of the farming and ranching community of Benjamin in the Texas Rolling Plains. The ranch straddles the King and Knox County line and access is provided by approximately 4.5 miles of paved Highway 82 frontage. Easy access from Dallas (200 Miles), Ft. Worth (175 Miles), Abilene (90 Miles), Lubbock (115 Miles), and Wichita Falls (94 Miles). HISTORY The ranch was assembled through several purchases with the goal of turning rugged ranchland into a true showplace. Livestock production and wildlife management have been the main focus, along with four season recreation. There are old copper mines in the rugged hills on the ranch, as well as stories about fur trappers and the history of several long-time area ranch families that called the ranch home in the early days. WATER FEATURES As previously mentioned, the ranch has been assembled and operated with an emphasis on improving the productivity of the land and expanding the availability of reliable water sources for wildlife and cattle. Recreation has been a major focus as well and four lakes on the ranch have been constructed in the past few years. These lakes are now full and have been stocked and managed for trophy fishing. Water is clear and inviting on a warm summer day. To further enhance the ranch with additional reliable water sources miles and miles of heavy-duty poly waterline was distributed across the property connected to a massive 30,000-gallon storage system fed by the King-Cottle rural waterline. This system guarantees treated water that is distributed across the property. This ingenious system utilizes mass storage and topography to efficiently move water across the ranch, maintaining enough pressure to fill over 65 large rubber tire drinkers and wildlife water stations. Approximately ten miles of the South Wichita River winds through the northern portions of the ranch. This river normally serves as a year-round live water source. The river bottom is very scenic and brush canopy along the riverbanks offers exceptional wildlife habitat. HUNTING, WILDLIFE AND RECREATION As the name of the ranch implies, this is big deer country. An abundance of large ranch ownerships in this region has allowed whitetail and mule deer populations to thrive and mature bucks to reach trophy size. Supplemental feed as well as large foodplots on the Venado Grande provide ample nutrition to grow impressive whitetail bucks. Also benefiting from this feed program are native turkey, quail and wild boar. In recent years aoudad sheep have become common in this area and there are some impressive rams viewed frequently on the Venado Grande. (4) 10’x10’ and (4) 6’x8’ insulated tower blinds are located on the ranch, typically overlooking a pipe fenced high capacity corn and protein feeder station. IMPROVEMENTS The ranch is exceptionally well improved in a first-class manner. The ranch manager lives at the ranch headquarters in a very nice 3-bedroom, 2 bath home with a rock and stucco exterior and metal roof. This house is connected to a large garage by a wrap around, ranch style porch. Complementing the headquarters ranch house is a 300’ x 140’ show barn with fifteen six rails, six-foot-high pipe stalls with automatic frost proof waterings. Two alleys and a nearly new set of pipe pens, tub and alley with hydraulic chute make livestock work a breeze. The large show barn also houses a large, unfinished apartment/office/tack room. This 50'x60' two-story facility was framed, wired for electric, plumbed and ready for spray foam insulation, however, the owner lost interest in the project and it was never completed. The current framed facility was to house two bedrooms, an office, large living area with full kitchen and a large saddle/tack room. This large covered pen would work well for a cutting pen and is complete with indoor and outdoor lighting. This structure was key in making livestock handling/work a pleasure. The HQ work shop’s footprint is 90’ x 100’ (40’x100’ lean-to, 40’ carport, and 50’x60’ being the unfinished enclosed apartment/office/tack room). A pipe roping arena and several outdoor pens, including a set of scales, are all located close by. A large heated/cooled shop is also located nearby, used primarily for feed storage and vehicle maintenance/storage. The owner's home is set on a picturesque hillside overlooking lush grass fields that were recently aerated and seeded to grass for cattle. This expansive and modern home was designed and built to last with no expense was spared in the construction. The home contains approximately 7,000 square feet and 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. Said home includes a 700 square foot heated and cooled garage and a 4,500 square foot wrap around ranch style porch. Only the best construction material was used, which includes exterior wall insulation that is approx. 11 inches thick that includes 6 inches of foam insulation, scratch coat of stucco, and 4-5 inches of stone. The roof is a virtually indestructible Gerard Stone Coated Steel Roof. Facia and soffit are stucco. All the aforementioned created as close to a no maintenance exterior as you can get. Another notable feature includes a state-of-the-art kitchen and monolithically poured, 8” thick solid concrete theater room that doubles as a safe room/storm shelter. Near this magnificent nearly new home is a large 60’x100’ foam insulated shop, heated and cooled, with a 25’ lean-to and carport. This structure serves as storage for hunting vehicles, RV’s, etc. Also nearby is a new equipment carport, which is 50’ x 200’ in size. This structure houses trailers, dirt equipment, tractors, etc. Around the owner’s home complex is a cement filled cinderblock snake proof wall and gate. RESOURCES This region is rich not only in productive land but minerals on and below the surface as well. The seller owns approximately 481 net mineral acres under the heart of the ranch (12,000 ± acres). Likely there are minerals owned under the other tracts that were assembled over the years as well, but this has never been researched. PRICE AND REMARKS The Venado Grande is a fantastic offering, suitable for enjoyable use throughout all four seasons of the year. The improvements and the ranch are top notch, are in great condition and easy-to-maintain. There is no doubt that this ranch will continue to flourish, and wildlife numbers improve due to the exorbitant amount of money that has been spent under the current ownership. The ranch is offered for sale at $1,195 per acre, including one-half of the owned minerals and all the wind energy and solar energy royalty rights intact. BROKER COMMENTS If you are looking to step into one of the highest improved, turnkey hunting /fishing/recreation/cattle ranches in Texas then the Venado Grande deserves your immediate attention. The Venado Grande is a recreation and cattle raiser’s paradise. Reliable ranch management is in place and management would like to continue operating the ranch serving a new owner.

Two reservoirs supply additional water, one of which has been known to produce monster trout. Other trophy trout ponds could be developed as well. Fully equipped as a cattle operation, Citadel Ranch can support approximately 500 cow/calf pairs throughout the year. Cattle improvements include well-equipped barns, corrals and other outbuildings. The ranching facilities are second to none, including complete fencing and cross-fencing, a network of roads and even a 600-acre bison pasture. In additional to over 23 square miles of deeded acreage, Citadel Ranch also holds an exclusive grazing and recreational lease on 2,720 acres of adjacent State land. The wildlife values at Citadel Ranch are impressive enough to capture the attention of even the most seasoned big game hunter. The ranch has been managed carefully for hunting values, and bull elk over 350 inches are common and herds can number up to an incredible 500+ animals! Pronghorn antelope favor the grasslands, and animals of Boone and Crockett calibre can be found. Trophy mule deer find the pinion and juniper forest on the eastern part of the ranch to be an ideal year-round home. Landowner tags are available for both pronghorn and mule deer. The bighorn sheep hunting unit here (S-50) is considered by many to be Colorado’s best, and trophy rams can often be spotted traversing the rocky crags on the ranch. Bighorn sheep tags are acquired on a draw basis. It would be difficult to imagine a ranch better suited for the horse lover than Citadel Ranch. A 38,000 square-foot riding arena received an update in 2018 and is a showpiece on this property. Miles of riding complete with spectacular western views are available in every direction, without ever having to leave the ranch itself, ensuring privacy for as long as you’d like to ride. Four homes are included on this property, including two manager’s homes and two wonderful custom 6,000 square foot log homes. Both homes received full remodels in 2018 and boast inspiring views of the Spanish Peaks to the south. Currently completely unencumbered by conservations easements, the ranch offers many more homesites, and an already-approved 31-parcel subdivision on the east side. County-approved roads, buried utilities and water are in place, ready for this section to be fully developed if desired. Creative development possibilities include wind and solar energy as well. Only ten miles west from Interstate 25 via US Highway 160, Citadel Ranch is unusually accessible. Even Denver is only 2.5 hours away, and Pueblo is only a 45-minute drive. One of Colorado’s great small towns for art lovers, La Veta, is but five scenic miles south of the ranch. In short, Citadel Ranch is a classic southern Colorado property that contains a world of potential for big game, horses, cattle and wise development. Ranches of this size are nearly extinct in Colorado; Citadel Ranch preserves the best of southern Colorado in the form of a magnificent property that truly does “have it all.”

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. Comments: Exemplifying the real estate term relative scarcity, Valley Lake Ranch is an unprecedented opportunity to own an expansive, private lake in the heart of North Texas. Proximity to the two major metropolitan areas encompassing Dallas and Fort Worth, prove this ranch a fantastic investment and recreational ranch owning opportunity, while the natural fishery represents a phenomenal experience for the angler at heart! *Please also note our listing entitled Lake Creek Ranch for an additional large water offering.

6,350 +/- acres: GILES ISLAND -- "WHERE LEGENDS ARE BORN"
#429081
Adams, 
6,350.00 acres
6,350 +/- acres: GILES ISLAND WHERE LEGENDS ARE BORN YES -- thats right -- Giles Island, a legendary tract is for sale! This is a generational sale with only two (2) owners in the last 130 years, so do not miss out! Giles Island is long known as the premier deer hunting destination in the Southeast United States, if not the entire country. This 6,350 acre deer hunting paradise has produced many legends over the last 25+ years (see a sampling among the many videos on the Giles Island Facebook Page). However, deer hunting is not all this tract is known for, as it offers excellent hunting opportunities for all critters in which there is a season. Chief among them are ducks, doves, squirrels, turkeys and alligators. In addition to hunting, the abundant lakes, miles of old river frontage and 1.8 miles of Mississippi River frontage offer the finest crappie and bass fishing to be found anywhere. The island further contains the finest example of the riverfront hardwood timber type to be found anywhere on the Lower Mississippi River. The timber has been on an active Forest Management Plan for the past 22 years. The primary objective of this plan has been to produce timber at the lowest cost and highest return while enhancing the wildlife habitat and protecting the pristine and aesthetic beauty of the island, which is off the charts. Giles Island is also the site of the legendary Jim Bowie knife fight which made the Bowie knife famous. Giles Island has operated as a profitable commercial hunting operation for the past 20+ years offering first class accommodations known as the Tree Tops Lodge and Sippn Shack and dining/social activities in the Antlers Lodge while in pursuit of huge whitetails and other game. The owners private lodging is outstanding along with the caretakers house. Other improvements include the guide and cook quarters, shop, trap shooting house, horse stable and elevated archery shooting platform (see Giles Island website for additional details). In addition to the 6,350 acres of fee land, there is an additional, adjacent 3,000+/- acres of Adams County School Board land under lease bringing the total huntable acres to nearly 9,400. In addition to the hunting pursuits, there are so many additional recreational and other pursuits to be enjoyed and utilized. Approximately 9,400 acres offers plenty of horseback and ATV riding opportunities as well as walking in a pristine setting among the towering sweet pecan, cottonwood and sycamore trees to restore and soothe the soul. Giles Island is located directly across the main channel of the Mississippi River from Natchez, Mississippi, the oldest city on the Mississippi River and can be viewed from the walking trails located on the bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. Giles Island, once a part of Clermont Plantation and the mainland of Mississippi, was created in 1933 with the Giles Cut-off. This was a manmade cut implemented by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers to shorten the many miles of river travel around what is known as Giles Bend and Marengo Bend. Historic Natchez, Mississippi is less than a 15 minute drive from the Giles Island Landing and lodges and affords all kinds of shopping, dining, recreation and other entertainment experiences for those family members and guest not inclined to outdoor pursuits. The Giles Island Landing is the quickest and most convenient access to the lodges, being a short boat ride directly across Old River from the Hunting Club Office and hunter check-in area. However, the island is accessible by vehicle a large portion of the year as long as the Mississippi River gage reading is 34 feet or less. The Natchez Adams County Airport is located 30 minutes from the Giles Island Landing and can handle any type of aircraft while the Concordia Parish Airport is located approximately five (5) minutes from the Giles Island Landing and can handle most aircraft. If you desire to see more detailed information you can visit [Web Link listed above] or [Web Link listed above] or the Giles Island Facebook Page for numerous, excellent videos depicting hunting and island experiences or by contacting Tom Middleton, Listing Agent and Forester, at 601-597-5727 or 601-304-0744 (o)
