Land / Lot Information
|Address:||Montague County, Texas|
|Price per Acre:||$5,750|
The Salt Creek Ranch is 55 +/- acres of prime hunting-recreational country in North Texas! Located just a few miles west of Nocona, it is quick access to just about anything you need. With 90% solid trees, a livewater creek and an established food plot, this property has a lot to offer.
Many different types of trees will be found here, including post oak, elm, native pecan and some of the biggest bodarks I’ve ever seen. Most of the mesquite were grubbed years ago near the entrance, but a few taller ones were left in order to make a staging area. In the middle of the ranch is a cleared 0.6 acre food plot that is currently planted in winter wheat; a blind and spin feeder are set up here too. Deer have been fed at this location for over a decade and numerous trophies have been harvested from this spot. The ranch has only been mildly hunted over the last 18 years. Through consistent culling and feeding, the deer are demonstrating some nice genetics now. Turkey and wild hogs can also be hunted.
Running from south to north through the western side of the property is the livewater Salt Creek. The property has land on both sides of the creek. With a sandy bottom, it meanders through the valley for 2,200 ft., providing consistent water for wildlife. Game tracks cover the creek bed and trail after trail leads to it. According to locals and other neighbors along this creek, Salt Creek runs water year around. After it leaves the ranch, it empties into the Red River about six miles downstream.
The whole property is forested, with numerous ravines and hills. The creek is accessible in some locations where the land slopes to it, and in other places, a 40+ ft. bluff runs right beside it. In a wide bend of the river on the south side is an area dubbed “the park”, which feels just like one. Towering trees and little to no briar in this area make is a great place to explore, enjoy the creek, camp out, etc.
Three sides of the ranch have a barbed wire fence (north side is not fenced). The property has county road frontage on its south and east sides, with gated entrances on both of the roads. Electricity is available on the neighbors at both the north and south ends (1,500-2,000′ away). It will cost an estimated $7,500-10,000 to have electricity brought onto the property. Well water can be obtained within 250′.
The land has a current agricultural tax exemption. Property taxes are estimated at just $100 annually.
