This wildlife/recreation property consists of approximately 90 acres of mosaic mix of open prairie and Cross Timbers vegetation. Elevation changes from 690 ft. to 600 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 the lower areas. A portion of the property has the Deep Fork River running through it and borders the Deep Fork National Wildlife Refuge which provides significant wildlife value to the property. More information can be found at https://www.fws.gov/refuge/deep_fork/
The Deep Fork Refuge map indicates the Refuge land adjoining the 90 acre tract. This portion of the Refuge is closed to hunting which should enhance the privacy and wildlife value.

Wildlife/ Recreation: The property and the Deep Fork Wildlife Refuge have been managed for quality wildlife habitat since 1993. A concerted effort has been made to develop trophy deer and balance the buck/doe ratio. The quality fishing and waterfowl opportunities found on the river and the ponds may be the ingredient that draw many people to this diverse property. Additionally, there are several locations to build additional ponds.
Just as important as the hunting opportunities, for tracts such as this, is the ability to enjoy the non-game animals and birds that are prevalent in this diverse ecosystem. A quiet sunset or sunrise on the river may be the intrinsic value that makes this property so unique.
Additional Information:Although the total acreage of native grass is not large enough to sustain a large livestock operation, it does offer a quality forage base that would provide grazing for cattle.
The varied terrain lends itself to horseback riding, hiking, bike and ATV trails. The relatively short distance from Tulsa is a value that should continue to grow in the coming years.
Advalorem taxes in Oklahoma are generally favorable when compared to other areas of the country.
