Turkey Flat Ranch is in Pittsburg County, Oklahoma, near the small town of Scipio, 20 miles northwest of McAlester, 86 miles south of Tulsa, 120 miles southeast of OKC and 150 miles north of McKinney, TX.  Other waypoints important to this ranch include the 3-mile distance to the South Canadian River, 11-mile distance to McAlester Army Ammunition Plant and proximity of large neighboring ranches to the north, west and south that range in size from 2000 to 10,000 acres.  All these features combined mean this ranch is ideally located for outstanding wildlife, and more particularly, outstanding whitetails!

The South Canadian is a great travel corridor for rutting bucks, MCAAP is veritable, low-fence repository of monster buck genetics and the surrounding large ranches mean that hunting pressure is minimized in this area.  That combination creates an ideal neighborhood for Turkey Flat Ranch to be a part of.  In addition, this 330-acre tract has some features that are attractive to wildlife in the area, namely open meadows along the fringe of large unbroken tracts of forested ridges.  These meadows would be ideal for creating large food plots to pull whitetails from the ridges into shooting range on the ranch.  The presence of both a 30-acre meadow located near the north end of the ranch and a 60-acre meadow located on top of the hill toward the south end gives you ample space to plant as much as deer forage as the herd would likely ever want.  There are plenty of deer tracks on the ranch as is, and we will be putting out feeders to help concentrate them for trail camera photos.  Also, it is very common to see something that is now uncommon on this ranch, large flocks of wild turkeys.  The wild turkey population is down across Oklahoma, but there are still ranches like this one that have the right combination of natural features to draw and hold large flocks.  Lastly, there is a small herd of free range elk in the area and a few black bears that might make an unscheduled appearance on the ranch from time to time. 

Of course, water is necessary for wildlife.  Turkey Flat has three ponds that range from ½ acre to 1 acre in size.  In addition, four wet weather creeks provide intermittent water sources for wildlife and nice locations to build some larger water in the form of a four-acre and an eight-acre lake site on the southern portion of the property.  The 80 feet of elevation change on the property ensures that there will be significant runoff after rainfall events.  The slope and elevation change seen on the property coupled with an annual average of 40 inches plus of rainfall yields some interesting opportunities to develop a trophy fishery. 

Beyond hunting and fishing, there are some other fun recreational opportunities on or near the ranch.  A pipeline runs for 1 mile down the eastern boundary of the property and offers a rare opportunity to shoot at truly long-range rifle targets.  The elevation generally slopes upward to the south and could be modified to provide a suitable backstop for long range shooting.  Alternatively, there is a half mile stretch that could be modified for a hilltop shooting range.  Hiking on the property is fun and the open hardwood forest makes for a pleasant walk.  Lastly, the neighboring 2000-acre property to the west has almost 30 miles of trails that can be accessed by paying a daily fee to the Tulsa Trail Riders club.  This would be a very convenient place to go enjoy riding with family, simply take a left turn from your front gate and drive ½ mile to the trailhead entry.

The ranch has a very basic cabin with electricity and water.  This two-bed, one-bath, 788 square ft structure is a spot to land until you decide whether you want to build a larger, new cabin or lodge for friends and family to enjoy with you.  In addition, there is a small three-bay, stand alone carport to keep some of your supplies and equipment out of the rain.  If you are looking for a great wildlife property located in a neighborhood of other great wildlife properties, please call Sean Childress at 580 320 5791 .
