Rural water and electricity are already in place.

There are 960 acres more or less total acres, with 112 acres of cultivation in the northwest corner of the property. There is 109 aces of old world bluestem in the southeast corner of the property.

There are three creek bottoms with good wildlife cover, along with two good ponds, and other small wet weather ponds.

The topography varies from steep to rolling, with draws for wildlife cover, and many views of parts of Childress County.

Wheat is generally grown in the cultivated field for cattle grazing, and makes for a large wildlife food plot.

The road system on the ranch is fair to good. It is primarily used, however, for feeding cattle.

Pens are located in the east central portion of the property and are in good shape.

Perimeter fences are in excellent shape and cross fences are in good shape.

Furthermore, the Childress Airport, restaurants, hotels, and Childress Regional Hospital are approximately 3-6 miles away.

Colorado River Wildlife

Colorado River Wildlife

Coleman Co. 76873

434 acres +/-

$1,388,800

Want a unique, secluded getaway spot for family or a corporate group on the Colorado River with beauty, fishing, and wildlife? Here is the place in Coleman County, Texas near the small community of Rockwood.
Excellent deer, turkey, quail, dove, and other wildlife can be found as well as fishing in the rivers that grace this approximately 434 acre property. LOTS OF TREES!! Liveoak, Mesquite, Pecan, and Elm make up the majority of brush.

This Colorado River ranch makes a good cow/calf operation!

One half mile of the Colorado River meanders through the south side of the property and one mile of Bull creek make up the majority of the water on the ranch. Bull creek runs through the middle of the property with springs and pools. One pond and rural water at the house complete the available water sources. Lake Ivie is approximately 14 miles west/northwest as the crow flies and has 19,149 surface acres.

The ranch is the home of the old Rockwood picnic and fish fry where everyone in the community gathered. Once you spend time on the property the history of this area will take over and you will want to know more about the past of the Rockwood Community.

The original Waldrip Colorado River Bridge (span is 170 ft) was completed in 1895 and was last rehabilitated in 2011. The bridge is actually on the property. Bull creek has a bridge spanning 297 feet. It is also called a pony truss bridge built originally in 1924.

Wheat has traditionally been grown on the one cultivated field above the river. It is 172 acres of some of the best soil around which is Clairemont Silt Loam. The remainder of the property is in B-Dahl Bluestem, and Native country. The fencing is good as well as the cross fences.

The ranch is accessible by a gravel county road and the ranch roads are fair to good.

A 2192 square foot home with three bedrooms and 2 baths has not been lived in for over a year. It is in good condition, but needs updating. It would be good for a weekend getaway.

323 Acres- Newport/Bowie, TX

323 Acres – Bowie/ Newport, Tx. 76230   $1,049,750

Location:  On Prospect road  (west side of Lowell Scott Road). Property has 246 acres on the north side of the road and 77 acres on the south side of the road. so it is actually 323 acres with Prospect road through it that is not counted as taxable land.

Ranching:  This area of the county has sustainable grass for cattle and should run 15 acres per cow in a normal year of rainfall. There are 2 stock tanks on the north portion and 1 on the south. Fences are new along the road frontage with a fantastic gate system. The gates on each side are inset to allow trucks to be off the road when they pull up to the gates. Gates are made of square tubing and recently built. The north gate also has a swing gate near it to allow punching cows across the road to the other property gate. Some neighbors have planted wheat, and /or coastal which shows that the soil can support a hay crop in case you want to put some in cultivation. A WATER WELL RECENTLY INSTALLED CAN PROVIDE WATER FOR CATTLE DURING DROUGHT CONDITIONS.

Wildlife:  This Ranch is an excellent property for deer hunting. White Tail Deer are large and healthy looking and the bucks with large antlers are seen now and then. Deer can enter this property from the south side which is a large acreage ranch that stretches across a large valley making a great refuge for deer to grow large. The north side of the property has some coastal and wheat fields that draw deer to feed and then enter this property to lay down and digest or go for water. The large hills on this property attracts buck deer that want it for a lookout place where they might spot a doe.

Hogs are around in numbers so there is another source of meat for the frig. Come out and thin the population on your wooded property that has large enough trees to put deer stand seats.

Dove will be seen almost year around so with some decoys and/or bird feed you should see a nice increase in dove population.

Haven’t seen many quail. Might take a couple of years to draw them back onto the place. Contact North Texas University if you want help. They are working to bring back quail in large numbers here in Clay County. They also have an office in Henrietta that is sometimes open.

Duck hunting is not great but I have seen some on two of the stock tanks. Bring some duck decoys when you occupy this property.

Turkey are in good supply. Have seen some of them roosting in the trees and occasionally see them crossing over into the coastal grass across the fence.

Water:  There are three tanks. Two of them are just above average size and the other one is smaller. There is one large creek bed that runs across the North West corner that runs deep water when there are rains of 5+ inches hit because of the type of landscape around which has some changes in topography. All the surrounding neighbors have a sustainable underground water supply for their homes. The largest home is a recently built 2 story home with more than 3,000 sq ft. on the east side of this property. A NEW WATER WELL HAS BEEN DUG ON THE PROPERTY.

Community Facts: There is a convenient store with gas, cattle feed, meat & cold food for sale, they make sandwiches to go and you might ask if the restaurant there has opened again. It is 5 miles to the north of this property. You can go over to Newport about a mile away for fire station and church or up to Buffalo Springs for community events. Shop at Bowie or Jacksboro which are 12 miles and 15 miles respectively. 

Location:  Newport is next to the county road Hwy 59. From there you go south 3/4 mile and take FM 2127  west 3 miles to hwy 148 which you can take south 10 miles to Jacksboro. Or you can take hwy 59 about 10 miles to Bowie (hwy 287). Bowie is 70 miles from Forth Worth.

Minerals:  None to convey.

McAdams Ranch

 

 

 McAdams Ranch

2480 +/- Acres

Foard County, Texas

$1295/Acre

 

The McAdams Ranch is located in southwest Foard County at the end of FM 654. This ranch has been in the McAdams family since the 1800’s and is loaded with history. JJ McAdams was a well known rancher and quite a character according to history. The Indians would camp on the McAdams Ranch to trade goods for beef and other things they needed. The ranch in those days was a premiere cattle ranch in north Texas and home to quality cow horses. The McAdams Ranch was established in some of the finest country in Foard County with an abundance of water with springs that run year round. The creeks and draws are some of the most fertile soil in Foard County and grow excellent grass.

 

The ranch is also home to some of the finest hunting in northwest Texas. The creeks, springs and excellent cover offer some of the finest habitat for all of the wildlife native to this area of northwest Texas. This is some of the finest whitetail hunting in Texas with 160-180 B&C native deer not uncommon on this ranch. The ranch has only been bow hunted the past few years with a strict management plan in place. There are several creeks and draws that are lined with hardwood trees for turkey roost. The ranch has some cattle at this time but still offers an abundance of grass and cover for the quail that are making a come back to this area of Texas.

 

There is a large spring on the east side of the ranch that has been dammed up by beavers that offers great habitat for ducks and geese. There is not many areas of northwest Texas that has the water like the McAdams Ranch does. One of the greatest assets of the property is Boiling Springs and Good Creek. The Springs run year round and provide water to Good Creek. Boiling Springs offers great habitat for ducks and geese. Good Creek is lined with hardwoods and offers great cover for the wildlife and beauty to the ranch. Abundance of water is unique to this part of northwest Texas. It is easy to see why the Indians used this area to camp. The ranch has large neighbors on all sides one of which is Comanche Springs Astronomy Campus. The campus does not allow any hunting on their property so this provides a sanctuary for the McAdams Ranch and insures that there is minimal hunting pressure and a chance to grow trophy deer. This is one of the finest hunting ranches to come on the market in a long time. It has everything a hunter would want in a hunting ranch.

 

There is also a 3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath main ranch home, a ranch manager’s home, barns, corrals and great fencing in place. Once you see this ranch it is easy to see why Mr. McAdams, his heirs and the Indians were very fond of this area. This is one of the finest ranches to come on the market in my opinion. If you are looking for a great hunting and cattle ranch that is loaded with history then please don’t miss this premiere piece of northwest Texas!! First time on the market!!
