435 ACRES, BEXAR COUNTY, TEXAS

Posted on: October 14th, 2023

435 acres, more or less of recreational property in Bexar County, Texas.

The property is situated south of Hwy 90 along Montgomery Road, 1.5 miles outside loop 1604. Nestled amongst growing single family development west of San Antonio this unique property offers a great recreational opportunity. Portions of the property have been managed for row crop agriculture and cattle grazing. The property is bisected by Lucas creek traversing east to west, with Potranca Creek traversing the property from the north; both of which flow into the Medina River which bounds the property on the east boundary.

These scenic streams and stream buffers are protected under a Conservation Easement that encumbers approximately 239.481 acres of the property; preserving these critical corridors. An estimated 135 acres within these corridors have been reforested in a variety of local woody species to enhance and protect the integrity of the Medina River system; while the additional acreage is a mix of open farmland, native grasses and brush, and a mix of live oak, pecan, and other species along the Medina River.

A majority of the property is situated within the 100-year floodplain.

Multiple improvements are located on the property but are not in habitable condition. No value has been contributed to said improvements. It is recommended that these improvements not be entered as the conditions have not been maintained, or evaluated for safety, and some have been open to the elements.

1,067 ACRES, McINTOSH COUNTY, OKLAHOMA

Posted on: October 14th, 2023

Imagine owning 1,067 contiguous acres of hunting and recreation rights located on a major perennial stream, with extensive hardwood bottomlands, substantial marshes, and upland fields interlaced with good game cover, being located within about an hours’ drive of Tulsa or Ft. Smith, just a few miles north of Warner and 15 miles south of Muskogee in the northeast corner of McIntosh County, Oklahoma. This is a truly unique opportunity to acquire privately-owned land with outstanding hunting and recreational rights at $1,150 per acre, which is significantly lower than the average recreational property.

This land offers excellent hunting for deer, ducks, feral hogs and squirrel in upland and bottomland areas. The diversity of the habitat on this land is of the highest quality, with small openings, creeks, sloughs, old stock tanks, large fields, three major marshes and large areas of remarkably attractive bottomland forest with a clean understory providing excellent hunting conditions. This land offers a hunter the opportunity to traverse over seven hundred acres of forest something that most people can only dream of being able to do.

The three large marshes have provided excellent duck hunting opportunities according to previous leasees. The largest marsh, which covers about forty-five to fifty acres on average years, has unusually good access with open fields being located along the north margin. The smaller marsh complex is in the northwestern end of the property, and encompasses about thirty acres.

About three miles of the substantial stream Dirty Creek runs from west to east through the southern section, offering fishing and other recreational opportunities. There are miles of unimproved roads and trails leading through the forests and fields.

The native forests on this property are a combination of large older trees, medium-aged and younger trees, with a very wide assortment of species. It has been many years since any timber was cut, and the understory is semi- to fully open in most places. As with most Oklahoma land, this property was farmed in the past, with a long history of crop production and cattle grazing. It is now an undisturbed forest, a delight to walk through, and is ideal for hunting, hiking, or just exploring.

The property consists of a diverse matrix of forests, shrub lands, woodlands, and herbaceous areas, with herbaceous areas comprising about 30%, while forests in various stages of maturity from young regeneration to mature forest make up 70% of the tract. The upland areas are categorized as an assortment of open fields with native grasses and forbs interspersed with forests and semi-open areas containing scattered trees and shrubs. Upland forests include post oak, blackjack oak, winged elm, eastern redcedar, green ash, chinquapin oak, and burr oak. The bottomland forests include pin oak, burr oak, silver maple, green ash, hackberry, pecan, boxelder, persimmon, Osage orange, honeylocust and American sycamore. Shrub / midstory species include Possumhaw, huckleberry, eastern redbud and flowering dogwood.

Natural Resource Conservation Service soil survey data indicate that the soils are primarily silt loams, with some rockier soils on the southern areas south of Dirty Creek.

1,032 acres of the property is under a conservation easement agreement and is being actively managed for native habitat, with funding for the prescribed burning program, vegetation control, road and boundary maintenance being provided by an endowment and executed by a conservation bank manager. The key activity is prescribed burning, which provides for excellent all-around wildlife habitat as well as assisting in maintaining an open nature to the woods and fields. The goal is to burn every acre possible at least once every five years, with no more than 40% of the habitat burned each year.

There are 35.05 acres in three development areas that have public road access with utilities, and are available for building homes, cabins, camps or whatever the property owner would desire. Two of these Development Areas are located on the northern side of the land, which is the McIntosh-Muskogee County line on County Road E1010. The 15.5-acre Development Area 1 is located on an upland site and is primarily in an open field, with some large walnut and red oak trees, as well as the old original barn and farmyard site. The 5.9-acre Development Area 2 overlooks the largest natural marsh and is tucked into the corner of a field against the woods and the marsh. The 13.65-acre Development Area 3 is located on the southern boundary off of County Road E1020, on an upland forested site on the south bank of Dirty Creek.

The property owner will be under no obligation to accomplish any of these habitat management activities, but will be required to cooperate with the conservation bank manager, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and the conservation easement holder. The property cannot be subdivided, no consumptive activities such as logging or mining are allowed, and land title transactions require the approval of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.

The property owner will only be responsible for whatever improvements are desired on any of the three development areas, providing their own non-permanent hunting blinds and feeders, and if desired establishing and maintaining up to a total of 10 acres of food plots (for example, could be twenty half-acre plots) planted with native species or commonly-used non-invasive non-native species such as corn, wheat, rye, clover, cowpeas, soybeans, oats, sunflower, etc.

A summary of the conservation project, the complete land survey, and other information is provided in the document download section.

Oil & Gas minerals are not available.
Electric Power, cable television and telephone are located on both the north and side boundaries of the property along the county road frontages.
The south county road additionally has community water.
Warner Public School District.
One gas well site is on property, in the south section within the Development Area 3 footprint, with the access road off of county road E 1020. Several plugged/abandoned gas wells are located in the forested area north of Dirty Creek.
A pipeline right-of-way crosses the property in the eastern section, running northwest to southeast.
The abandoned Texas & Pacific Railroad line is located along the eastern side of Dirty Creek in the easternmost portion of this property.

568 ACRES, NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TEXAS

Posted on: March 17th, 2023

The Attoyac River Ranch is an exceptionally diverse wildlife habitat and working forest containing 353 acres of pine and hardwood upland forests as well as 215 acres of hardwood bottomlands on the banks of the Attoyac River. Only 2.5 to 3 hours from the Dallas and/or Houston metroplex areas, this unique recreational property offers timber-based cash flow along with a wide variety of uncommon natural areas.

Located 23 miles east of Nacogdoches, between Martinsville and Chireno with about a half mile of frontage on County Road 392 (Halls Bridge Road), the property has two existing entrance gates, electrical power and community water.

Originally a well-managed cattle operation, an ownership transition created an opportunity for establishing a distinctive wildlife habitat and working forest project, which twenty years later has now come to fruition. Commercial timber production, bottomland hardwoods, marshes, swamps and upland hardwoods offer a very diverse experience and is easily a great weekend retreat spot. Hunting, fishing, and recreational access is excellent with approximately seven miles of roads and trails on the property. The roads have some moderate improvements, with some rocked stream crossings, even in the bottomland areas.

Wildlife Habitat and Recreational Aspects – The wildlife habitat is unparalleled on a property of this size. Bottomland and upland hardwoods of all ages offer both present and future benefits. The management strategy has retained and protected a variety of flatwoods ponds, swamps, marshes and sandy creeks.
Within the managed pine forest areas, many quarter-acre to five-acre old hardwood forest pockets were retained for habitat diversity. This strategy also retained large, old red oaks, post oaks and black hickory in old brushy fence rows amongst the planted areas. Ten open maintained food plots covering a total of a dozen acres are located all around the property.

This property offers outstanding, proven opportunities for hunting whitetail deer, feral hogs and squirrels. The northern wetland habitat offers better-than-average opportunities on ducks. There is a good potential for dove and rabbit hunting, especially in longleaf and hardwood – longleaf areas. Secluded bottomlands and upland areas are very suitable for still hunting, archery. One central road offers a 500- to 1,000-yard long-range shooting opportunity, with an open area which would facilitate erecting an earthen backstop if so desired.

There is good river and pond fishing, with approximately 2.3 miles of Attoyac River frontage and a 2.5-acre pond. The dam was reworked with a siphon pipe and rocked spillway 15 years ago, and the shoreline planted with baldcypress and longleaf pine. Both the pond and the river have easy access on main woods roads. Over a mile of attractive sandy creeks with a beech-sweetbay-white oak-pine ecosystem is located along three streams, and offer recreational activities such as hiking and still hunting.

The north waterfowl area has about 30 acres of seasonally-flooded emergent marsh, young and older hardwood timber, a planer-elm swamp and a remarkable overcup oak flat.

A sixteen-acre area of sweetgum-sweetbay-red maple seepage swamp and baygall is a fairly unique feature, and adds to the wildlife habitat diversity of the land.

Approximately 100 acres of planted oak – loblolly flatwoods, with eighteen-year old loblolly pine interplanted with seven-year old oaks are located in the southeastern section. This includes 15 acres of seven-year old restoration plantings of predominately hardwoods with longleaf pine on hummocks.
There are also 10 acres total of small natural flatwoods ponds scattered in the southeastern oak-loblolly flatwoods.

Commercial Timber Resources – This property has immediately-marketable pine and hardwood timber, as well as many acres in various-aged young forests to provide future cash flow. This property has produced multiple timber sales over the last two decades of both pine and hardwood products. The young forests can easily continue to support the 1-d-1 timber land tax status as per state law. A recent timber inventory is available upon request.

The property contains approximately 88 acres of eighteen-year old loblolly pine plantations and 45 acres of seventeen-year old loblolly pine plantations. A prescribed burning program in these areas was started a few years ago.

In addition, the 40 acres of upland seven-year-old longleaf plantation is doing very well, and will offer excellent habitat and timber production in the future.
The 160 acres of intensely-managed native bottomland forest consists of cherrybark red oak, overcup oak, green ash, willow oak, sugarberry, sweetgum, southern red oak, water oak, American elm, Shumard oak, bitter pecan, sycamore and hickory. A 12-acre managed bottomland regeneration parcel within this area has been very successful in renewing oak species.

No minerals are available. No seller financing is available. Hunting equipment such as feeders, trail cameras and blinds are not included in the sale. A boundary survey has been ordered and will be available when completed. Property is located in the Chireno school district. The barn is included in the sale, and is offered “as-is”. The two entrance gates offer a circular “pull-through” convenience for vehicles and/or RV’s.

All references herein to acreages, tree ages, improvements or utilities are approximations or estimates, and are offered only as a general guide, and are not guaranteed in any way, being based on existing public documents and interpretations of aerial photography. Unless specifically stated, no formal land surveying by a licensed surveyor has been used in determining acreages. Potential buyers are strongly urged to verify all pertinent facts for themselves.
