--AUCTION-- Located in Northeastern Oklahoma, the Cherokee Spur Ranch offers a spectacular view of Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees. This unique ranch has been operating as a Professional Hunting Resort with guides and staff for hunts, weddings and other corporate events since 2007, and continues to do so. It boasts over 750 acres of diverse flora and fauna, wetlands, nearly 2 miles of shoreline, a lodge, ranch house, bunk house and party barn. White-tailed deer, bobwhite quail, Rio Grande turkey, numerous waterfowl species and countless non-game species call this land home. Looking out across the horizon, one can see the rich soils of the lowlands give way to the rocky ridges above.
There are three homes on Cherokee Spur Ranch. The first is a 4,923± sf lodge with an entertainment room, loft and multiple bedrooms. There is ample room to relax or play inside, or out on the large patio. The second is a ranch house featuring a full kitchen and an outdoor patio. And the third, a double wide mobile home, has highway frontage and income potential.
The property has two duck slews, one of which is stocked with Hybrid Bluegill and Crappie and was funded through a grant from the US Fish and Wildlife Service. The auction will include all of the decoys and hunting gear used for the hunts. The ranch also includes dog kennels with automated water, hunting dogs, and flight pens.
In addition to the premier hunting, the property has been a working cattle ranch with working pens and hydraulic chute. It has a mixture of both improved Bermuda and Fescue pastures as well as excellent stands of Native Grass. Two hundred steer were maintained from March through July 15th, 2011 with an average daily gain of 2.1 lbs. Similar gains are expected from a 175 steer capacity in 2012 with an additional 60 head of cow/calf pairs.
