Property Description:

The Burgess Y Ranch is a historically significant ranching property that has been owned and operated by the same family for the last 120 year! The “Y” is located 14 miles southeast of Paducah, Texas, two hours west of Wichita Falls, and two hours north of Abilene, Texas. The size of this immense contiguous property is hard to comprehend as the ranch is in four counties and stretches eleven miles long by six miles wide! The principal land features are deep rolling canyons throughout the property that give way to mesquite-covered flats that hold potentially rich soil for further agricultural or improved grasses development. In fact, several of these areas have been cleared to enhance the forage production for the large production bison herd that call the ranch home. Common native grasses to the ranch include buffalo grass, side oats grama, blue grama, and Texas winter grass. This ranch has good surface water features with a good number of livestock ponds many of which were cleaned out over the winter of 2021-2022. In addition, the most notable and striking feature are the 20+ miles of river frontage created by both the North and Middle Wichita Rivers that have carved beautiful bluffs and dramatic elevation changes through the property for eons. These rugged bluffs rise over 60 feet in elevation above the clearwater flowing rivers below. Elevation changes range from almost 1700’ in the northwest area of the ranch to 1500’ along the river bottoms in the east. Several taller prominent mesas rise from the center of the ranch and provide gorgeous panoramas of the ranch for literally miles in every direction! The location of the Burgess headquarters was constructed near a prominent artesian year-round spring that nomadic Comanche tribes would frequent as they hunted prior to the establishment of the ranch. This spring flows year-round into a collection system and is piped to an astounding 65 troughs that have been strategically plumbed throughout the ranch. Rural water is also available as a supplement, along with fifteen windmills. Two above ground water storage tanks provide additional storage and keep pressure to the more remote areas of the ranch. Further improvements include five separate ranch houses, fully enclosed metal workshop, covered equipment shed, three horse barns with stalls, two round pens, and arena with roping boxes. Seven well-built pipe corrals have been constructed at key points across the property with gathering traps, scales (Two sets), and working chutes to facilitate the easy handling of livestock. The Davis Trap in the southern portion of the ranch features heavy duty corrals with livestock scales and stone framed line shack that is reminiscent of cowboy life some 100 years ago. A hunter’s camping complex has been setup west of the headquarters with full utilities, cleaning shed, game cooler and several other permanent structures. The location of the camp is convenient for hunting clients to access but is discreet for those actively living in the main headquarter housing. Speaking of wildlife, this area of North Texas is very diverse with trophy whitetail and mule deer species, Bobwhite quail, wild hog, javelina, and predators. Located in big ranch country and having other large neighbors, including Wolf Creek, the McAdams, and Lowrance Ranches; the “Y” offers exceptional hunting with outstanding trophy potential found in the vast stretches of unspoiled ranch country. Both perimeter and interior fencing is good to excellent with 25 divided pastures with some having well over 2,000 acres each which allows for rotational grazing. All major entrances have pipe-gated entrances for easy transition between pastures and secure roadway entrances. With some oil production on the northern section of the ranch, large transmission lines with cleared areas below, and a good interior road system across the property, there is good access to most all parts of the vast 39,500+/- acres. The Burgess “Y” Ranch is an opportunity to own a massive slice of the rolling plains and its unique history from the well-equipped, modest headquarters, outstanding terrain, and diverse wildlife opportunities, and future energy potential.
