Ask Dan Ward
This farm is located directly in the flyway between the TX Panhandle and Knox City, TX where tens of thousands of ducks and geese winter every year. An Irrigation well is in place and plumbed with pipe that is laid to strategically flood the habitat in years with minimal rain. The Seller is an avid waterfowler and has thoroughly enjoyed using and improving the waterfowl experience on this property. The foundation has been laid for the next owner to enjoy. The blinds are in place, crops are planted and water is available at the flip of a switch! If you're the kind of person that wants to keep working and improving a property there is an opportunity in the level area below the lake dam to create a serious shallow wetland. Due to the gentle terrain and gradual fall of the elevation to the south, it looks like several pools could be created and strategically flooded from the lake or the irrigation well. There is cropland surrounding this property so the dove hunting is always world-class! Deer use both the mesquite thickets by the lake and the undisturbed native grass in the southeast portion of the property. Heavily traveled trails show their routes crisscrossing the property in all directions going to and from bedding cover to food sources. The Seller is not a deer hunter but he has confirmed they use the property heavily and it is absolutely evident this is the case based on the amount of sign.
