Colorado City, Texas | $1,968,525
Acreage: 2,019 Acres
Location: Colorado City, Texas
Offered by: Charlie Middleton
The ranch is located in southern Mitchell County south of Colorado City, Texas.
Terrain is gently rolling and hilly over much of the property with a fairly large mesa on the northwestern portion of the ranch. Some hills and side slopes run through the property in the eastern, central and northern portions.
Elevations on the ranch range from approximately 2,000 feet to 2,150 feet on top of the mesa.
The property is fenced and cross-fenced into two main pastures with a set of working pens centrally located. The Scharlach Ranch adjoins the famous Renderbrook Spade Ranch, which contains well over 100,000 acres.
The ranch is watered by several dirt tanks as well as a windmill. Electricity is available on the county road that fronts the property as well.
As all quail hunters know, this area, known as “Quail Alley”, is infamous for wild quail production. Both bobwhite and blue quail species are present on the Scharlach Ranch, and on my inspection of the property in July over 100 coveys of quail were viewed or flushed on the ranch. It is my personal opinion that Mitchell County produces more quail year in and year out than any other area in the Rolling Plains of Texas.
Whitetail deer numbers are good in this area and turkey are very common. Migratory bird hunting in this area is also known to be exceptional.
A foodplot containing approximately 8 acres is located in the eastern portion of the property, and another field of approximately 12 acres is located on the northern portion of the property. These fields are generally planted to wheat or other grains and are a magnet to wildlife. Other areas of the property would be suitable for cultivated fields as well.
The Scharlach Ranch is being offered for sale at $975 per acre. Offering exceptional hunting and recreation as well as good livestock grazing, this ranch has a lot to offer.
The property is being offered surface only with no minerals offered, however, all wind energy rights will be conveyed.
If you are in the market for a good hunting and cattle ranch, this offering deserves your attention.
