Lamar Mountain Ranch
The Lamar Mountain Ranch is located just North of Lamar Oklahoma in Hughes County, 92 miles from Oklahoma City and 200 miles from Dallas/Ft. Worth. This hardworking ranch has spent its entire life caring for and raising commercial cattle on its 314 acres.
The ranch itself is relatively flat but just beyond its Western border the elevation increases about 200 feet creating breathtaking views of what locals call "Lamar Mountain".
The property is mostly open with areas of dense hardwoods for cover. The soils on this ranch are mostly class 2 and 3 soils consisting of Dennis Loam, Verdigris Silt Loam and fine sandy loam. These soils are fertile and support rangeland production. The western pastures have been terraced to prevent erosion and have served their purpose well. The perimeter fences of the ranch have been completely replaced in recent years and are in great shape. There are some interior cross fences which are in need of repair but are serviceable.
Running North to South through the middle of the ranch is an old railroad which has since been abandoned and rails removed leaving a strong rock base, now a driveway, allowing for year-round access to any part of the ranch regardless of wet conditions.
In addition to easy access, good soils and fences, the ranch has 9 ponds meaning even in a drought year you can still water your livestock.
The eastern side of the ranch has almost 4000 feet of road frontage and several access gates to the 3 cross fenced pastures. There is a small, older, barn in the south eastern pasture that could serve as shelter or hay storage. It is also on this side of the property where Middle Creek is located. Middle Creek isn't deep or wide meaning it's easy to maintain crossings and water gaps. The main low water crossing has been recently fixed to include a nice concrete crossing wide enough for pickups and equipment.
While this ranch is a hardworking cattle ranch, we have to mention the opportunity for development of trophy whitetail and other game. The dense mountain side is home to many large whitetails that Hughes County is known for. The area is quiet, not heavily populated and located between two of Oklahoma's major rivers, The North and South Canadian. Looking at a map this valley is sandwiched between higher, densely forested areas on both the East and West side. This narrow strip of fertile flat land would make the perfect place to establish food plots and create deer habitat.
