The Gap Ranch is a 2000 +/- contiguous acre ranch situated in the picturesque, cedar break country of Harper County in Northwest Oklahoma. The ranch sits just above the Beaver River and Wolf Creek Valley, north of Ft. Supply, OK. This specific area is rich with history and served as a pivotal travel corridor for hundreds of army provision wagons and frontier cavalry troops traveling to Fort Dodge, KS, from then camp supply in northwest Indian territory. Historical figures George Custer, Kit Carson and General Sheridan are believed to have trekked through "The Gap" in the mid to late 1800s!
The Gap Ranch has since been operated primarily as a cattle ranch with some opportunistic hunting along the way. There are windmill and solar powered wells supplying water tanks and ponds on the south, center and north ends of the ranch as well as numerous wet season ponds, so cattle never have to travel too far for water. Rural water with electricity is also present on the north end of the ranch. The grass is good enough to support good numbers of cattle, and the perimeter and cross fences are in good shape so keeping your herd in is no problem at all. The road system on the ranch allows you to travel from the far southeast corner of the ranch all the way through to the far northwest corner while having to open only a single gate!
The potential of this property as a hunting and recreational farm is outstanding! It is bordered along the entire south end by the Hal and Fern Wildlife Management area and on all other sides by a single, large, family run cattle operation. A publicly accessed county road runs along a portion of the south end of the ranch only, so unwanted encroachment would be very difficult. The property is made up of deep cedar canyons, draws with grassy hill tops, and mesas. It is ideal terrain and habitat for growing and holding the giant whitetail, and even mule deer that are making this region of NW Oklahoma extremely desirable amongst the hunting community. Numerous large, record book quality whitetails have been harvested off this ranch and surrounding properties so there is no question the genetics are here! Other wildlife species that call this ranch home, along with the whitetail and mule deer, are good numbers of turkey, quail and other small game species. Elk and even Aoudad have been seen on the property! With some strict and deliberate wildlife management, this property will be off the charts as a hunting and recreational property!
If you still aren't convinced of the overall quality of this Oklahoma gem, let's consider the income potential of this property! There is potential for six figure income through cattle grazing lease, hunting lease and possible wind royalties generated from the 11 wind turbines on the ranch!
This property is one you don't want to miss out on! You truly have to get your boots on the ground and fingers in the red dirt to truly appreciate it! Stand on the same flat top mesas that the Native Americans and historical figures from the wild frontier days possibly stood and admire the same vastness and rugged beauty of what is today, The Gap Ranch!
