I’m posting this property on a few sites before i list it with an agent. I thought someone might be interested in a hunting property in Rogers, TX. I bought this property 2.5 years ago as raw land along big elm creek. It is approximately 4 miles NE of Rogers on the bell/Milam line and is almost 100 acres. It has 50 acres of on each side of the creek with a passable bridge. I recently finished the 23,000 cubic yards of levee work to build the 4 compartment 16-17 acre wetland system. It is set up with an inlet system that will self fill with a 3-4” rain. It will also come with 8 acre feet of pumping rights from the creek. I built over a mile of 6” roadbase with 4-6” milled blacktop into the property. There is a 30’ permanent easement all the way from new colony road into the property.
The property is loaded with deer and has large timber blocks on each side. We see 15-20 deer every time we hunt. We passed several 3-4 year olds this year in the 120-130+ range and have shot a couple 8s up to 152”. There has been two deer over 160 shot on adjacent properties. The wetland is pumped and is currently holding 750-1500 mallards and teal per day.
I’m asking $455,000 to get my investment out plus a few $$ for 2.5 years of work/Time input. Feel free to share this. Here’s some pictures. Raw land this closecto temple on big elm sells for 2750-4000/acre with zero improvements.
Duck marsh is the dark bulldozed area.
4 compartments have an inlet set 18” above grade that will fill the entire marsh from a 3-4” rain with surface run off. It also graded flashboards set where you can fill all 4 compartments from one corner.
The grading was shot with a survey drone.
The 15 acres in the front grows sunflowers exceptionally well with good numbers of dove.
The wetland soils have amazing moisture retention. 1-2” rain in August grew 4’ tall jap millet. [img]http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums...h4iv3.jpg
