Texas Panhandle Ranch

Posted on: September 19th, 2020 by Super Admin

SOUTHEASTERN TEXAS PANHANDLE. 4,500 acres in Hall County, Texas bounded by the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River (locally known as the Big Red) on its north side, and the Little Red River on its south side. The secluded location of this property makes it one of the most suitable ranches of its size for managed hunting anywhere in the Texas Panhandle.

The ranch is fully developed for livestock production with good permanent fencing, water facilities supported by the local rural water supply co-op, working corrals & handling facilities, and roadways throughout. It will support approximately 200 cow/calf units annually, with peaks reaching 250 units. The subsurface water table level is not significantly affected by fluctuations in rainfall. Therefore, grass availability for livestock and wildlife habitat is fairly consistent from year to year and not affected by variations in weather conditions to the extent of most other Panhandle properties.

Overall, the property provides excellent habitat for a diverse array of wildlife including mule deer, white-tailed deer, badger, bobcat, coyote, fox, beaver, Rio Grande wild turkey, bobwhite and blue quail, mourning dove, ducks, and numerous small mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Feral hogs are present and controlled by various legal means. An independent quail survey, conducted in December 2017, indicated an abundance of bobwhite quail.

Many areas of the ranch have a shallow water table, and depressional potholes can be found throughout, providing either fresh or saline surface water. These potholes and associated drainages into the Prairie Dog Town Fork and Little Red rivers provide important habitat for migrating waterfowl and other wetland-dependent wildlife. In addition, the ranch has as extensive water system for livestock which can easily be modified to supplement the natural water for wildlife use.

A site visit to investigate potential for enhancing wildlife on the property was conducted in October 2017. The resulting Management Summary report (available on request) contains information regarding site conditions and recommendations for a potential Wildlife Management Plan. As noted in the subject report, this ranch forms the western end of 4 adjoining ranches that together form a contiguous stretch of wildlife habitat, approaching 13,500 acres all bounded by the aforementioned Big Red river on the north. A cooperative Wildlife Management Plan covering this entire area would likely prove especially beneficial to all of the subject properties.

West Boulder River, McLeod Montana

Posted on: December 11th, 2017 by Super Admin


The Burnt Leather Ranch has historically been comprised of several parts that worked together to form a well-balanced and recreationally diverse ranch. We are privileged to offer for sale what is referred to by the owner as the Old Steen Place. The Steen Place portion of the ranch includes the headquarters of the Burnt Leather Ranch as well as its most valuable recreational resources. This is the portion for which the Burnt Leather is famous, primarily because of the over 2 miles of both sides of the West Boulder River which flows through the ranch providing one of the most scenic and prolific stretches of water on which to catch trout in the lower 48 states. This is arguably the most coveted ranch in the most desirable neighborhood for recreational ranches in Montana.

The West Boulder River Valley, and the surrounding northern slopes of the Absaroka/Beartooth Wilderness in south central Montana, has long been known for its stunning beauty, crystal clear trout streams and limitless wild country to explore on foot or horseback. Laced with vibrant aspen groves and evergreen-covered slopes, the trout-rich West Boulder River busily searches its way through open parks of wild flowers, under the shadow of jagged, snow-capped peaks. Burnt Leather Ranch is what you see when you dream of your Montana ranch.

Bucolic retreat on the Llano River in the Texas Hill Country – between
Llano and Mason, Texas. With approximately 300 feet of river frontage,
this 4.64-acre property rests alongside a stretch that measures about 150
feet wide. A sandbar provides access to one of the deepest pools in the area.
Covered with large live oak trees, native grasses and plants, cacti and Spanish
dagger, the property has been purposely landscaped to maintain a very natural
environment. A ledge of granite cuts across the property separating the gentle
hill to the house from a grassy meadow. Neighboring structures are obscured
by trees and native brush on both sides of the property giving it a remote
and private feel. A beautiful ranch owned by a 6th generation family of Llano
county ranchers is situated across the river, with no structures in the view.

A renovated 1,100 sq. ft home enjoys a beautiful view of the river and the hill
country. Numerous windows from 3 living areas, including an enclosed sun
porch, are designed to take full advantage of the outdoor environment. The
one-bedroom, one-bath home has stained concrete floors throughout, and is
equipped with central air and heat, satellite high def television, and high speed
internet. A 2-car carport and a 15×20 workshop round out improvements on
the property.

One of the last wild rivers in Texas, the Llano River is very picturesque in this
area. River traffic is an occasional kayaker or a fly fisherman. Motorized boats
are prohibited. The property is ideal for fishing, swimming, kayaking, canoeing,
bicycling, bird watching, rock collecting and star gazing at nights. The back
roads are enjoyable for walking, biking, or leisurely sightseeing. And for
climbers and hikers, Enchanted Rock State Natural Area is 45 minutes away.
