Surface Water & Fisheries: The 5+/- Acre lake is a sight to behold and is stocked with largemouth bass and other baitfish. Two additional stock ponds can be found on the ranch that are approximately .625+/- and .2+/- acres in size. While the main lake offers largemouth bass fishing, all three water features located on the ranch offer a dependable water source for cattle, wildlife and wintering waterfowl.
Wildlife & Hunting: Dunklin Lake Ranch has exceptional cover for whitetail deer. Big deer are known to roam through this part of the county, and the ranch has been lightly hunted over the past few years which has created a place of refuge for wildlife. The ranch is also an excellent candidate for high fence, and the eastern neighbor is currently high fenced.
In addition to whitetail deer, the dove and feral hog populations are plentiful, allowing for year around recreational activities. The ranch's abundant water should also support good hunting for wintering waterfowl.
Cattle: The ranch conservatively supports approximately 50 AUs and is currently leased for grazing. If desired, the lease can be terminated upon closing and funding.
Minerals: The seller does not own the mineral estate.
Union Pacific Railroad: The Union Pacific Railroad runs along the western boundary, on the western (opposite) side of the perimeter fence on the ranch, for approximately 1,721 feet.
