Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to own a spectacular Osage County, Oklahoma ranch. Spanning roughly 1,233 acres, this property is ready to go as an outstanding cattle operation, perfect recreational property, or country home. The ranch features stunning elevation changes, hardwood timber, and water throughout, with abundant populations of white-tailed deer, quail, turkeys, and multiple well-stocked ponds. and is easily accessed by paved and blacktop roads. Situated where the Cross Timbers meet the Tallgrass Prairie, this ranch is one you’ve got to see! Bordered along its northern boundary by paved County Road 3809 and along its western boundary by blacktop County Road 4901, the access to this property is unbeatable. 5-strand barbed wire cross fencing divides this property into 11 well-watered grazing units with a series of traps and sorting pastures at the headquarters. The headquarters features an 1,880 square ft, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home with a detached 2 bedroom bunkhouse or mother-in-law’s quarters with a full kitchen and bathroom. The large wooden barn with indoor round pen opens into a set of pipe working pens and outdoor arena. Underground electricity lines keep the view from the headquarters unblemished. With water plentiful throughout the ranch, two of the stocked fishing ponds are plumbed with gravity flow water system. Tallgrass Prairie forage, elevation changes, timberland, fishing ponds, and a winding creek bed seasonally flowing south to Pond Creek combine to make this the perfect turn-key cattle operation or recreational getaway.
This turn-key green country cattle ranch includes excellent soils, large pond, and improvements already in place. The ranch boasts 313+/- acres of productive prairie soils with introduced forages across multiple pasture units. With scattered ponds throughout the property and multiple water sources, livestock and recreational water are plentiful. A centrally located 3 bed/2.5 bath 2400 sf ranch house lies at the end of the winding driveway. The property also includes a central barn/corral with electricity and rural water.
While the majority of the ranch is open, rolling prairie, there are scattered trees throughout the landscape to provide shade for cattle and travel corridors for wildlife movement. The house and barn receive rural water service and there is an additional water well that, upon repair, can function as supplementary water source. This unique ranch offers comfortable amenities and a great forage base, all off of a blacktop road just minutes from town.
The Bates soils comprises almost 70% of the soil base and will produce 4,000 to 6,000 lbs. of range forage per acre/yearly and will be rated from 5 to 7 AUM (animal unit months) if in introduced forage. The Dennis, Taloka and Verdigris soils are even higher producing soils that complete the soil base.
The acreage is subdivided by permanent fencing and could be easily paddocked by electric fencing to further enhance the flexibility of a grazing operation. This ranch is only a half section, but it packs a ton of potential for both grazing capacity and flexibility. It could be maintained as a four to five pasture rotation of Bermuda/Fescue, but it also presents an excellent opportunity for interseeding diverse forages or grazeable cover crop mixtures to further enhance the soil health and production capacity of the ranch. The climate of the area also favors the forage production with a long growing season and close to 45 inches of average rainfall per year.
The introduced forages of the ranch will respond well to fertilization. The location near the Arkansas River ports and commercial chicken production areas provides competitive fertilizer choices.
Recently, the ranch has been lightly stocked with 40-60 cow/calf pairs, but with aggressive management could carry numbers closer to 80-100.
Given the layout and amenities, this ranch should be very user friendly and easy to operate.
Wildlife: While the ranch is well suited for livestock production, there are plenty of wildlife friendly areas as well. White-tailed deer, turkey, and even quail have been observed using the varied timber and riparian areas throughout the property. The large pond is stocked with multiple species of fish and has remnants of two fishing docks that could be restored.

We are presented with a unique opportunity to present an Osage County ranch located so close to Pawhuska. This property offers excellence grazing with introduced grass, native Tallgrass Prairie forages, legumes and forbs. As is often the case, in this cross timbers ecosystem, the recreation opportunities are outstanding. The steel corral system, ranch improvements, and fences just compliment the elevated 3,220 +/- square foot home, with a wraparound porch, that overlooks much of the headquarters area.
The home has been utilized as a get a way retreat and is well suited for entertaining several guests and would make an enjoyable permanent home. The downstairs has an open kitchen/dining/living area with a gas fireplace. The large master bedroom with a gas fireplace adjoins the large well-appointed bathroom.

An added feature is a complete 900 square feet living quarters accessed from the private stairway in the three car garage.
The ranch has not been aggressively managed for grazing production but is currently rated at 150 animal units by the owner. The 10, or more, well fenced traps contain introduced forages of Bermuda and fescue that can be enhanced with clovers, crabgrass and other winter and summer forages. A forage manager will see the opportunity that is available especially in the bottom land contiguous to Bird Creek. Managing the larger pastures, that contains the native Cross Timbers forages, with fire and rotational grazing will benefit the livestock production; but just as important will enhance the wildlife habitat.
As mentioned, recreation and wildlife go hand in hand with Cross Timbers and this ranch is enhanced by location, diversified and quality habitat plus the character of the terrain that allows for more than just hunting and fishing opportunities.
The pipe corrals, loading and working facilities, livestock scales, loafing sheds and the large hay barn, that will handle more than 250 round bales, are added values and necessary for the efficient management of the ranch. A converted Harvestore and shop create added storage areas.

Verdigris Valley Electric Coop furnishes the electricity and gas is provided by Oklahoma Natural Gas. The advalorem taxes are approximately $3400/year.
Added features of this ranch are the stunning view of Pawhuska from the ridge line on the west and a pecan grove located in the Bird Creek bottom. Several nice deer stands and feeders are located throughout the ranch and, although not offered in the sale price, could be purchased at very reasonable cost. Some furnishing in the home will transfer and the owner will consider, for a qualified buyer, an owner carry.
Depreciable property is often an interest and the ranch offers a considerable amount of depreciable assets. If extended in Federal legislation, Osage County is in an area that qualifies for the Accelerated Depreciation on former Indian lands.
This 309 acre tract is located along Dog Thrasher Creek just east of Barnsdall and north of Highway 11. I hope you will be as impressed, as we are, with the recreation value this acreage offers. The family is reluctantly willing to pass it on to someone that can continue to enjoy the pleasure it has brought to them. Recreation is more than just hunting and fishing but offer trails to explore, wildlife to enjoy and peaceful scenery. With a foot print far larger than the one mile that it occupies,from north to south, this spring fed creek includes large pools and shallow riffles of moving water. Sycamores, river birches, walnuts, pecans, bur oak and red buds are just few of the native trees found along the lower creek areas.
The Cross Timbers areas found on the slopes and upland will predominately be post oak, blackjack oak and hickory. Scattered stands of sand plums and persimmons are just some of the woody plants that contribute to the wildlife habitat. Due to prescribed fire, the canopy in the timbered area has been lifted to allow native grass, legumes and forbs to flourish. The several open prairie areas found throughout the property add value to the habitat and the scenic value of the tract.
As described, it is evident that this is a property that offers limited livestock grazing and will be best managed for the various recreation opportunities it offers.
The acreage has been hunted for several years by family and friends with great success. The multiple ponds and creek offer bass, crappie and bluegill fishing. The small pond, known as the Kiddie pond, always provides some action. A hand constructed native stone spillway and a washed out dam offer an opportunity to build yet another very nice pond.
The oil production on the property is well maintained and contributes to the road system and edge areas through much of the area. The ridge provides some scenic views of Lake Waxhoma to the east and home sites if a getaway cabin is in the picture.
The ranch is just minutes from Barnsdall, 30 minutes or less to Pawhuska and Bartlesville, and 40 minutes to the Tulsa airport and downtown Tulsa.
Electricity is located on the property and rural water is available on the north and south but perhaps a shallow well, near Dog Thresher Creek, might be the best source of water. The real estate taxes are a modest $140/year.
