Overview: Rolling Oaks Ranch is a pleasantly diverse ranch located in the heart of Young County. On the front half of the ranch, mesquite trees have been strategically cleared to stimulate the native grass growth. Big rolling hills covered in large, mature Oak trees surround a seasonal creek that traverses the center of the ranch from east to west. Thick native cover is located on the back portion of the ranch along with nice rock outcrops and steep slopping hills. Excellent hilltop views are abundant inside Rolling Oaks Ranch.
Terrain: There are two cultivated fields located by the front entrance to the ranch. The first field is 27 acres and the second is 44 acres. Both fields are currently planted in winter wheat. The smaller field would be ideal for a sunflower/dove field in the fall. Excellent native grasses and large Live Oak trees cover the rolling hills that continue back from the fields. With a 60 foot elevation change, the hilltops provide excellent 360 degree views of Young County. There are 2 nice size tanks in the middle of the ranch surrounded by Post and Live Oaks. Both tanks are filled by a fingerling branch of Skid Creek that runs through the heart of Rolling Oaks. This location would be ideal for a larger lake project in the future. The ranch has a mix of sandy to slightly sandy loam soils throughout with nice rock outcrops along the western edge. There is an excellent system of roads on this ranch that allows you to explore all corners.
Wildlife: Hunting includes whitetail deer, Rio Grande turkey, duck and waterfowl with the option to fall dove hunt if the cultivated fields are planted. There are quail, feral hogs and plenty of varmints to hunt all year round. The property is currently leased for hunting. This lease can be terminated with a change of ownership.
Utilities: Ft. Belknap water Co-op line located on FM 926 in front of the ranch and Ft. Belknap Electric can provide electrical service inside the ranch.
Fencing: All fences are in good to excellent condition.
Minerals: 75% of the mineral estate and executive leasing rights can be conveyed with an acceptable offer.
