246 acres Bowie/Post Oak Tx. 76230  $799,500

Location:  On Prospect road  (west side of Lowell Scott Road). Property is 246 acres on the north side of the road at wide /inset double gates.

New Improvement:  The property owner is currently building a stock pond approximately 3 acres in size. This pond has a depth of 12 ft near the dam side of the pond. The dam will be wide enough to drive across.

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 attract 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 convenience 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.
