Pond Creek Ranch
Pond Creek Ranch is a 590 acre ranch conveniently located an easy 100 miles from both Tulsa and Oklahoma City and 160 miles from Dallas. The ranch lays approximately 1 mile east of a paved county road, making for quick and easy access from any of the three metro areas. This property features approximately 280 acres of open pasture with the remaining 310 acres in wooded draws and scrub oak interface.
The ranch has 120 feet of elevation change from the high point on the east boundary down to the deep draw exiting the ranch on the west side. The elevation change occurring across this central draw that runs the width of the property and has the bulk of the timber and scrub brush. The timber has been thinned in the past and now has intermixed regrowth of oak trees and small grassy openings. This area is ideal for deer management and hunting as it provides an ideal mixture of travel corridor, cover, water, browse and acorns. In fact, we placed a trail camera in this draw to collect photos of wildlife moving through it. A clear water, 2.5 acre lake complete with an ideal stump field sits on the eastern end of the draw and provides a plentiful source of water for cattle and wildlife. Another 1.25 acre pond surrounded by smartweed and persimmons with a nice ring of aquatic vegetation looks like the ideal place to fish, hunt ducks or maybe catch a buck coming to water. One mile of the intermittent Pond Creek and two small stock ponds round out the water resources of the ranch.
The 280 acres of open pasture lies in two main areas and can be managed as three pastures with the existing cross fencing. The pastured areas have a nice class 3 type of sandy loam soil and have been used for hay meadow in the past. The fences are in decent shape but could use some work plus, the pastures need to be sprayed to bring them back to their former glory. In addition to the gravel county road frontage, there is also a gravel oil well access road that cuts across the southern end of the property.
Lastly, the 484 acre Mineral Springs Ranch almost touches the southwest corner of Pond Creek Ranch and would be an ideal addition for someone looking for more pasture. If additional hunting opportunities are what you are seeking, then the 761 acre Wildcat Creek Ranch adjoins this property on the north and has a much higher percentage of wooded area.
Speaking of Wildcat Creek Ranch, this property has 200 feet of elevation change as well as over half a mile of Wildcat Creek. In addition, there is a topographical bowl in the northeastern portion of the ranch that would accommodate a 30 acre lake that would be fed by Wildcat Creek. There is already a 1.2 acre pond existing in the southwest corner of the property. Much of this ranch is a mixture of timber and scrubby regrowth of small oaks intermixed with grassy meadows. The soils on this part of the ranch have a higher clay content and more exposed rock, as such, the growth is dense and the ground is rugged. A gravel county road lies on the west boundary of the ranch and an oil field access road runs along the southern border of the ranch.
Taken together, these two ranches would provide 1351 acres with open areas for cattle, dense growth for wildlife and plenty of water for both. If you are looking for either type of ranch or a combination of the two, please call Chrissy at 765 220 2489 to discuss or set up a showing.
