Mints Ranch | Wilbarger County

Location:

The Mints Ranch consists of 2642 Acres and is located on US 283 and Diving Board Rd in the Southern part of Wilbarger County Texas formally known as Mack Community. The property is part of the Texas Land Heritage program, being owned and operated by the same family for over 140 years. It is also located directly in the middle of the famed W. T. Waggoner Ranch. Located with highway frontage approximately 20 miles South of Vernon and 20 miles North of Seymour on US Highway 283. Also, it is just a short 2 to 2 1/2 hour drive West of the DFW Metroplex.

Terrain:

This 2642 +/- acre ranch is basically gently rolling plains with several flatlands. The ranch has 255 +/- acres of cropland and several valley type locations along the 4+ miles of heavily wooded creek bottoms with several beautiful scenic overlooks. There are approximately 600 acres of expired CRP lands consisting of Switchgrass, Bluestems, and Coastal Bermuda grasses. The remainder of the heavy clay soil is covered in native pastures with heavy mesquite to some pastures that have been sprayed or grubbed. The combination of native and improved pastures along with the cropland has historically carried 200-275 head of mother cows.

There is approximately a mile highway frontage to the West on 283 and approximately 2 miles of county maintained frontage to the North on Diving Board Road. The property is divided into 15 pastures with good cross fences and good perimeter fences, most being 5 wire barbed wire. There are 22 earth tanks scattered throughout the property providing each separate pasture with more than adequate water for livestock and wildlife. Many of the stock tanks are stocked with bass, crappie, perch, and catfish and many have rock bottoms.

Hunting:

Mints Ranch has been outfitting seasonal hunters for the last 18 years. There is an abundance of Whitetail Deer, Feral Hogs, Javalina, Bobcats, Coyotes, Rio Grande Turkey, Dove, and Bobwhite Quail. The Mints Ranch has basically been the only developed hunting property within a 25-mile radius. Over the last 18 years of outfitting, there has been an average of 140-160 class Whitetail Deer with several exceeding 175-180 inches. Along with the 255 acres of cropland, there are numerous small food plot spaces scattered throughout the 2642 total acres.  Along with many corn feeders, hunting blinds are also negotiable in the purchase of the property.

Improvements:

There are several structures on the property and many having historical significance to the property. The Old Homeplace house was built during the late 1890s. It was in use for outfitting until 2017 and could possibly be renovated and made into a very unique hunting lodge. There is also a barn that was built around the same time as the house with a side shed and is still used as a game skinning area.

Also, a large set of pipe corrals connect with the barn. In 2017 bunkhouses were added built from three 40′ containers consisting of 2 bathrooms with showers and room to comfortably accommodate up to 20 people. The bunkhouse area also has a 3000-gallon water holding tank with pump and hot water heater to supply bathrooms. A 20 x 20 shed has also been used as a kitchen/dining area. There is also a septic system attached to the bathrooms. Bunkhouses are all insulated and equipped with electricity and window A/C units. There is electric service to the bunkhouse/camp area and there are also service lines along the North side of the property on Diving Board Rd. There is a smaller set of pipe pens on the northern side of the property. Many of the perimeter fences are new to good condition as same as cross fences.

Minerals:

The mineral rights and wind rights that ARE OWNED by the owner are subject to negotiation in the purchase of the property.

History:

The Mints Ranch has been owned and operated by the same family for over 140 years. It has been registered in the Texas Land Heritage Program and proudly operated as such. The Mack Community once flourished until the early 1900s and had a school and general store. The Mack Cemetery is located on a location next to the Mints Ranch. The Mints Ranch is located directly in the middle of the famed W. T. Waggoner Ranch and has always maintained a great neighboring relationship. This would be a great opportunity to have a piece of historical property in the Great State of Texas that would provide great enjoyment through cattle production and extremely opportunistic hunting possibilities.

The 596 acre Melton Ranch consists of cropland fields converted to Old World Bluestem surrounded by native pasture and brush. The property supports a good native grass composition. Mesquite, hackberry and lotebush make up the brush species on the ranch. The perimeter fences are in good shape with a set of pens on the west side of property.

A two bedroom, one bath older brick home is located on the north side of the ranch. Water is supplied by a well to the house and a small cabin with a bath. Three other water wells, run by solar pump, are on the property also. A shop is next to the house for storing vehicles and atv’s.

Combs Property

Location: Located in Eastern Hardeman County on the Hardeman/Wilbarger County line. Approximately 3.5 miles from Chillicothe, Tx., 13 miles NW of Vernon, Tx., and 2-3 hours from Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Abilene, or Amarillo.

Terrain: 197 +/- acres of gently rolling sandy loam soil with coastal Bermuda grass, Love grass, and native mixes. Several shelterbelts, Chinaberry thickets, numerous Oak trees, and some mesquite. Several great hidden pockets that would be perfect for wildlife food plots. Excellent perimeter fences and one cross fence separating this property into two tracts consisting of 117 and 80 acre blocks.

 

The 117-acre block is fenced with net and barbed wire combo. Each tract contains a stock water well with one powered by solar and the other by utility. This property would be excellent for the avid hunter with an abundance of deer, turkey, quail, dove, wild pigs, and varmints. It would also be very productive for a cow/calf operation. The north side of the property has all weather access, while the south is accessed by an all-weather easement through the neighboring corner. Current owner does not have access to any mineral rights but there will be 50% of wind rights conveyed. This would be an excellent opportunity to acquire an excellent hunting or ranch property.

 

Wittrock Ranch Coleman Co.

Wittrock Ranch is a wildlife refuge deluxe! It has all of the water a hunter would want. The approximately 34 acre watershed structure lies on the northeast part of the property. The lake is a big invitation to all migratory water fowl. This structure was built to reduce flooding on Bull Creek that runs through the west side. Bull Creek generally has good pockets of water.

Wittrock Ranch lies northeast of Gouldbusk, Texas in Coleman County. Three fields have been planted in wheat and sunflowers. Thats a set up that should produce all the dove hunting you will ever need. Quail feeders are in place and brush density is excellent along Bull Creek for deer hunting.

The cabin has electricity and rural water. This structure is 1800 sq. ft. three bedrooms, two baths, and an open living area. Central heat and air are in place. Sit on the front porch, which is 12’x60′, and watch the ducks fly onto the lake. The cabin can house up to 10 people comfortably. Five RV hook ups are near the cabin which includes electricity and water.

Two barns are just north of the house. The first storage barn is 30’x80′. The second barn is 24’x24′ which serves as a tractor shed.

Access is good off of CR 300 and the ranch has a good network of roads.

What an outstanding property that is set up for family, small corporate group or an outfitter.

Come take a look and I think you will agree that this is a one of a kind property for hunting and or cattle!

Asking $2,675 per acre.

38 Acres Bowie, Tx. Montague County

 

38 acres of land for sale on Butler Ranch Road,  Bowie, Montague County, Tx.  $152,00 @ $4,000 per acre.

Description:  This property is mostly native grassland with some clusters of mesquite trees mostly on the north side. The land is higher in elevation than the property to the West and South showing a nice view of the landscape for about a mile. The fences are in good shape and considered to be above average. There is a valley that drops to about 12 feet at one point. This valley starts at the backside of the stock pond and the area formed by the run-off of water when the pond is full and the excess that goes around the spillway has formed a low valley that if a dam were built across it there would be two stock ponds on the property. There is a large cluster of plumb thickets on the property. It has just produced a large number of plums.

Surface water:  This property has a stock pond of about half an acre that must be at least 10 ft deep in the center because it holds enough water to prevent it from going dry during the recent drought. The pond is also spring fed according to the owner. It does look clear and blue which is a good sign it is spring-fed. Have never seen muddy water in the pond. The pond had a large crop of bullfrogs in it this spring. I have only seen one snake in the pond since showing it and not seen any turtles.

Well water: There is no water well on the property but there is a well nearby on the 52 acres to the north. The well next door produces about 4-5 gallons of water a minute.

Utilities: There is an electric meter on the pole which is about 100 feet from the entrance to the property. This pole has a transformer on it.

Livestock: In the lane that travels west there is a small corral that the owner used for working cattle. It has a squeeze shoot to hold cattle while working them. This place has had cattle on it for the past few years but about 3 months ago the owner sold them. This has renewed the grass to its normal height of about 4-6 inches. The owner ran about 12-15 cows and calves on the 38 acres. He brought out a round bale about twice a month depending on how often it rained.

Wildlife:  Whitetail deer usually cross the property especially when the owner’s friend kept his game feeder operating. Also a group of turkeys has at least 12 mature turkeys in it. Occasionally I have seen dove, coyote, bob cat but rarely see hogs. However, with a feeder operating game animals should come around as they did a few months ago.

Property taxes: This 38 acres is agriculture exempt. A great thing about this property is that the taxes should be between $30-$100 a year because of the exempt tax status. They were only $64 a year when the property was 52.9 acres. 14 acres was sold out of that tract so taxes should be less.

Advantages of owning this property are:

  1. The property taxes should be less than $64 a year
  2. Remote from housing- allows hunting and firing a gun in any direction
  3. Future investment since the area is now low population. In the future when population growth has moved north from Bowie this property will quickly increase in value in a normal economic growth period. 4. There is a chance to buy more land from the neighbors who have several hundred acres
  4. It is priced less per acre than other properties that are undeveloped in rural Montague County near Bowie, Texas
  5. There is already an electric meter on the property
  6. The stock pond is spring water.
  7. There is a large plumb thicket
  8. There are several deer and a large herd of turkey that roam the area
  9. The neighbors are friendly and are above average in their work income.
  10. The property is higher in elevation that most of the surrounding properties.
  11. The lane (road into the property) is 40 ft. wide (wider than the county road) and you would own it.
  12. The supervisor at the highway barn for the county says that he will be putting gravel on Butler Ranch Road, which will improve the value from that improvement.
  13. The installation of the bridge will be a good factor in increasing the value of this property.

 

Financing: Owner may finance with a large down payment.
