Commissary Point

Posted on: January 13th, 2023 by Davidson Charles

Commissary Point is one of the finest recreational properties on the Gulf Coast, offering year-round enjoyment of the outdoors. This is a duck hunters dream first and foremost, but also offers phenomenal fishing on Lake Calcasieu for speckled trout, redfish, and flounder. No boat is required to crab and cast to redfish just outside the back door, or fish lights for speckled trout off the pier. Birdwatch the waterfowl during the migratory season, numerous shorebirds year-round, and catch the neotropical species on their way back north in the spring. As a bonus, deer, hogs, and alligators are present in huntable numbers, or be a kid again and catch some bullfrogs for frying! The casinos in Lake Charles are a short and easy drive away for additional action. This is a true year-round getaway with a comfortable lodge ready for use, and a rare opportunity to own your own piece of the Sportsmans Paradise that is Southwest Louisiana.

LOCATION
Located in Cameron Parish near Big Lake, on the east bank of Lake Calcasieu, this ranch is roughly 2.5 hours from Houston, 1.5 hours from Lafayette, and minutes south of Lake Charles. Direct air travel into the Lake Charles Regional Airport is available from both Dallas and Houston.

TOPOGRAPHY, RANGELAND & HABITAT
Experienced waterfowlers know that not all waters are created equal when it comes to hunting. First, its location on the western edge of the Mississippi Flyway in an area of hundreds of thousands of acres of habitat provides the birds. Importantly, Commissary Point is set up so that the waters can be managed for depth, creating shallow areas of marsh full of widgeon grass, plus flooded prairie full of grass seed. This is accomplished via a series of canals, water control gates, and levee system in conjunction with land management. Two primary, adjacent impoundments create permanent marsh areas of 275 acres of more brackish marsh adjacent to 420 acres of sweeter, more grassy marsh area. North and adjacent to this area is 570 acres of coastal prairie that is under rotational management and is shallow flooded by relift pumps from the sweet water canals. There is an additional 340 acres that is currently used for grazing that could be added into the mix of waterfowl habitat with the addition of groundwater irrigation, or it could be overseeded with rye or oats, creating a goose field.

Per USDA data, the uplands soils of the ranch are approximately 85% loam soils, with approximately 15% silt loams.

WILDLIFE
Ducks are tops on this list of this ranch, as indicated. Greenheads and pintails love the flooded prairie, while gadwall and widgeon prefer the marsh. Blacks and teal trade back and forth, and of course, any of the above can be found in either setting, along with spoonies and the various divers. Many a speckle belly has been taken from Commissary Point.

For saltwater fishing, Lake Calcasieu is a name location for fishermen on both sides of the Sabine River. Fish the shorelines, reefs, or weirs for trout, redfish, and flounder. Or, pack a rod and pick up a redfish after a morning in one of the marsh blinds. Blue crabs are plentiful as well.

For the birdwatcher, this is a year-round delight. From the year-round shorebird population to migratory waterfowl to springtime neotropicals returning north to Louisianas own brown pelicans, there are always plenty of species to enjoy, so keep your ID guide and life list handy (along with a good pair of field glasses)! Raptors, various cranes and herons, roseate spoonbills, gallinules, rails, and coots are other common sightings.

Aside from the waterfowl, enjoy watching the white-tailed deer, the occasional hog, sunning alligators, and various varmints that make the marsh and prairie home.

IMPROVEMENTS
Lodging consists of a very comfortable lakefront home, featuring 3 bedrooms, each with its own private full bath, plus two additional half-baths in the living areas. The wrap-around porch provides fantastic sunrise views over the marsh, and sunsets across the lake. Plenty of concrete parking is below the elevated home.

Additional improvements include a three-slip boat shed and ramp for marsh boats, and a pier into Lake Calcasieu. The shoreline is protected by a bulkhead and generous riprap.

MINERALS
Surface only is included in the asking price. There are no active leases or production, and no pipelines impacting the property have been identified.

Oak Creek Whitetail Ranch

Posted on: November 20th, 2022 by Grothaus Sheldon

An incredible investment opportunity grossing approximately $2,000,000 annually awaits in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains at the legendary 955 acre Oak Creek Whitetail Ranch. Oak Creek Whitetail Ranch is located almost right in the middle of Missouri, Osage County, just 40 minutes north of Rolla, 40 minutes south of the capital, Jefferson City, and halfway in between St. Louis and Kansas City. With paved access on County Road Y (north side) and NN (south side). There is a private airstrip just 20 minutes from the lodge that is capable of handling most large planes including learjets.

The Lodge has been extensively renovated and added onto throughout the years, most recently being 2012. The Lodge contains a total building area of approximately 6,637 square feet. The main floor contains approximately 5,498 square feet with an additional 1,139 square feet being contributed by the second floor, along with two partially finished and unfinished basements. The lodge contains a total of nine bedrooms, nine bathrooms, kitchen, a pro shop, and office. The gorgeous lodge features plenty of entertaining space; there is a trophy and game room with three floor to ceiling fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, and stunning antler chandeliers.

In addition to the lodge, the foremans home is a 2,389+ square-foot 1.5 story, five-bedroom, two full baths, and two half baths home with a two-car attached garage and basement. This home has a lake on the north and south side of the house. There is also a second 2,232 square-foot lodge, constructed in 2009 with four-bedrooms and three-bathrooms for additional guest lodging right next to the main lodge. There are seven barns on the property, consisting of approximately 16,536+ square feet, including a tractor barn/pole barn, fodder/feed barn, skinning shed with 4-wheeler storage, a bird barn, a breeder barn, a stocker barn, and another storage barn at the foremans house.

Oak Creek Whitetail Ranch is tucked into the backcountry of the Missouri Ozarks with huge majestic oak trees throughout the property, lush and grassy pastures, and miles of clear running spring-fed creeks. There are four electric wells on the ranch, five lakes, and 48 automatic freeze-proof water troughs.

Oak Creek Whitetail Ranch was fenced, and the domestic deer herded off the property. The owner went to Canada and brought back what was at that time over $750,000 worth of the best genetics in the world. These large-bodied, heavy antlered Canadian Whitetails were imported to begin what is today one of the finest hunting facilities in the World. Since then, the best genetics in the United States with a special CWD resistant genotype have been selected and introduced to this mitochondria line, making most of the animals on the property more resistant to CWD. Also there seams to be some resistance to EHD and blue tongue as well. The ranch has had very little if any EHD or blue tongue over the past 15 years.

Oak Creeks 955 acre ranch consists of beautiful oak timber, winding creek bottoms, along with wide-open spaces that is known worldwide for harvesting some of the largest deer in the world. During the last few years, Oak Creek Whitetail Ranch has rewritten the record books, at times holding as many as 33 of the top 35 midwestern typical and 30 of the top 35 midwestern non-typical in the SCI record books. Including the #1 Typical Rifle, #1 Typical Muzzleloader, #1 Typical Archery, #1 Non-Typical Muzzleloader, and #1 Non-Typical Handgun.

In addition to the fantastic whitetail population, they have also started a herd of mule deer, axis deer, and piebald deer to go along with their abundance of turkey, squirrel, and dove on the property.

Oak Creek Whitetail Ranch is one of the premier hunting properties in the U.S. The beautiful rolling hills close to the Gasconade River have been intensely managed for over 28 years. The hardwood hollows, cedar ridges and winding creek bottoms provide for the most beautiful and challenging hunting environment in the Midwest.

Oak Creek Whitetail Ranch is exclusively listed with United Country Real Estate & co-marketed with Texas Ranch Sales, LLC.

Overview: Quintessential East Texas legacy ranch with towering pines and hardwoods, 50+/- acres of surface water featuring a 36+/- acre lake, immaculately cared for improvements, rolling hills, improved pastureland, springs and everything imaginable to entertain all your friends and family. This is a rare and difficult asset to find in a highly desirable area of East Texas being less than 80 miles East of Dallas, TX.

Lake #1: The “big” lake is 36+/- surface acres of prime East Texas clear water with several coves, fingers and one predominant peninsula. This is the premier water feature for the ranch and provides recreational activities such as fishing, wakeboarding, swimming or just relaxing at the boat dock’s oversized deck watching scenes of the day. The pristine East Texas lake is 22-24′ deep with undulating topography under the surface, open water as well as good subsurface structure for fishing. Water exits the lake via an overflow pipe in the dam as well as an emergency spillway.

There is a john boat storage facility on the water’s edge keeping your boat out of the weather and making it easy to launch. Tree cover surrounds the lake and there is an overflow pipe for this lake as well. A nostalgic wooden bridge crosses one of the spring-fed drainages feeding into the lake.

Lake #3: The smallest of the 3 lakes measures 3.5+/- surface acres and is surrounded by a mature mixture of hardwood and pine trees. The east bank of the lake was recently mulched providing a scenic overlook of the lake. This lake sits above the big lake and the dam provides a beautiful view of both lakes. This lake has a pipe and overflow in the dam and water will flow into the main lake when it is at capacity.

Springs & Creek: Several springs run through the property and feed into some of the lakes and ponds. There are believed to be 2-3 springs that run into the big lake and at least 1 spring that runs into the small lake.
