Flying L Ranch
Flying L Ranch is a 160-acre property located on a paved county road just 1 1/2 miles Southeast of Wewoka, Oklahoma, an easy 65 miles to Oklahoma City, 95 miles to Tulsa Oklahoma and 145 miles to the Dallas/Ft. Worth metro area.
Oil production is prevalent on the Flying L but this comes as no surprise given the regions history and proximity to the Seminole Oil Boom of the 1920's. One benefit to having oil production in your pasture is the network of roads in and to the sites, giving you reliable access to the entire ranch that you wouldn't otherwise have. Not only do these roads make getting around the ranch quick and easy, it ensures you access to each section of the ranch despite wet weather conditions.
There are three entrances to the ranch. The first gives access to a small set of working pens and barn in the Northwest corner, flanked by a creek. From this point the elevation rises slightly to the East, creating a rock lined ridge overlooking the bottom below. A beautiful place to sit and take in the view.
The second entrance is just to the South of the first entrance and serves as the main access point of the ranch. From here, oil roads lead to the North, East and South making access to the northern 3/4 of the ranch a breeze.
The third entrance is accessible by a section line road running North into the Southwestern corner of the property.
The ranch is 95% open with water in every 1/4 of the ranch. The crescent shaped, tree lined ridge has a natural spring flowing down it. This spring water empties into a small natural catch basin at the bottom of the hill. A larger pond that services the central pasture is not far from the main service road and provides ample water to the North 80 acres. There are two other wet ditch areas that show evidence from the vegetation that they stay with water year-round.
The most southern section has a 1/2 acre pond which services the bottom 1/3 of the property.
Improvements are modest on this ranch with the only structures being the small barn and working pens and an additional hay or equipment barn. This ranch is ready for cows now with clean pastures, productive Bermuda grass, water and cover. The ranch is currently running approximately 40 cow/calf pairs and with some increased pasture management could run more.
There are several homesites on the ranch but the one that is most dramatic is atop the crescent ridge overlooking the bottom pastures and creek. With the natural elevation and change and boulder outcropping, you'd get a park like setting right out your backdoor.
