Land: The drive to this property is absolutely beautiful. When you’re on the middle of this place every direction you look is pleasing to the eye, beautiful mountain views, tons of wildlife, and the Kiamichi River is on this ranch. This ranch has been owned by the same people and has been a working ranch since the early 1960’s and this is a rare opportunity to find this much land all in one location that you can live, hunt, fish, farm and ranch all at your own place. There are so many things that make this place so unique. The south 160 acres is currently being cleared to make more pasture while leaving some mature trees for shade and for possible building locations. Then gradually sloping to the north is 260 acres of pristine improved pasture. This place has extremely good and deep topsoil that will grow a lot of forage even during the hot and dry summer. Cattle seem to do better on this type of ground. The property is fenced and cross fenced, to separate livestock or to practice rotational grazing. If you like to deer hunt your chance of harvesting trophy bucks is excellent in this area, big bucks frequently run these riverbanks when the rut is in full swing. Several ponds for watering livestock,wildlfie and to provide fishing opportunities. When we drove around this ranch on a utv we saw a tremendous amount of ducks, Canadian Geese, whitetail deer, squirrels, and even saw Bald Eagles. Wild hogs are often found here and provide year round hunting opportunity. The Kiamichi River is a lot clearer than most in Oklahoma and you can see clear to the bottom a lot of the time in places. It is a great river for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, and fishing. The state record Hybrid Yellow Bass was caught in it. It is habitat for Channel Catfish, Flathead Catfish, White Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, and Spoonbills. The river is big and wide on this ranch with easy and direct access. The banks of the river here are very beach like with clean sand and there are several islands where the river splits around them. This is a great place to saddle a horse and ride all day, lots of area and lots to see. There is a spot on this ranch with very good shale that could be used to build roads or building pads. There is approximately 60 acres of land that lays north of the river has some fairly dense cover providing ideal habitat for wild game and the open meadows are great for making food plots or grazing livestock. It has scattered trees and nice pond. There is also access to this area from the north. This ranch has loads of character and offers a multitude of possibilities: from recreation, fishing, hunting, home place, ranching, and future development. This is a hidden gem and sure worth looking at! By appointment only.
