Realtor’s Comments: This property is a ranchers dream and a hunter’s paradise! This one-of-a-kind property has access to both sides of the Kiamichi River for over ¾ mile and contains an abundance of wildlife. When I drove across this property with the current landowner, we saw 6 different groups of whitetail deer and found two antler sheds from last year. This property contains very rich and productive river bottom type soils that will grow virtually anything! The mountain views from this property are very spectacular in every direction. In my opinion, this property could be classified as true “Investment Grade Property”.
