715 AcresSurritte Ranch
Improved wildlife/hunting ranch for sale consists of approximately 715 acres of a mosaic mix of open prairie and Cross Timbers vegetation. Elevation changes from 750 ft. to 925 ft. presents a varied terrain. Post oak, blackjack, hickory, persimmon and sand plum are some of the upland species while red oak, walnut, sycamore, pecan and red bud are just a few of the bottomland species that are found on Cedar Creek and its tributaries. This Oklahoma acreage for sale reflects the owner’s long term goal of creating sustainable wildlife habitat to enhance quality deer, turkey and quail hunting, while maintaining an agriculture grazing base.
The 715 acres, more or less, are located in Osage County, Oklahoma and therefore sell as surface only.
There is no current oil or gas production on the property.
The ranch is located less than 3 miles northeast of the small community of Nelagoney located about halfway between Pawhuska and Barnsdall. The property may be accessed from the west via County Road 2627 and from the east via County Road 2431 and then across a recorded easement through adjoining private property.
The land for sale and the area have been managed for several years by the owner and adjoining land owners for quality wildlife habitat. A concerted effort has been made to develop trophy deer and balance the buck/doe ratio. Considerable progress has been made to enhance the quail population to the point that meaningful hunting has been available the last few years. Quality fishing opportunities are found in Cedar Creek and the several ponds as well.
Just as important as the hunting opportunities, the ability to enjoy the non-game animals and birds
that are prevalent in this diverse mixture of prairie, timber and creek bottoms adds value to any outdoor
experience. A quiet sunset or sunrise on Cedar Creek may be the intrinsic value that makes this property so unique.
The modest home, located near Cedar Creek, has been utilized as a hunting cabin and is served with well water and electricity. A small steel corral is located near the home. Some of the bottomland pasture has been over seeded with clover and is usually planted to wheat which creates a large food plot area near the center of the ranch.
Cedar Creek flows for approximately ¾ mile through a portion of the property as well as several tributaries of Cedar Creek and Bird Creek. This area is well known for the many springs that will be found throughout the property. As mentioned, the home is served by an excellent well.
Although the total acreage of native grass is not large enough to sustain a large livestock operation, it does offer a large enough area to provide grazing for a cattle operation and is currently grazed in the summer with stocker cattle. More so than many recreation properties, the grazing income is sufficient to contribute financially to the upkeep of the ranch for sale in OK.
The varied terrain lends itself to horseback riding, hiking, bike and ATV trails. The relatively short
distance from Tulsa and Bartlesville, Oklahoma Hunting Land for Sale is a value that should continue to grow in the coming years.
This scenic property offers an escape from the busy urban areas while being only minutes away from the conveniences that we have become so dependent upon.
The property is located in an area that qualifies for accelerated federal income tax depreciation on
qualifying ranch improvements. This is due to the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 that targets former Indian Lands in Oklahoma. This act has been extended through 2009 and provides a shorter recovery period of approximately 40% for most non-residential depreciable property.
Advalorem taxes in Oklahoma are generally favorable when compared to other areas of the country. The current taxes for the land and home are approximately $1,000 per year.
