Attention Sportsmen! Here’s one of the most unique ranches you’ll ever find for sale. Most locals know the story of Optima Lake built back in the 70s, an absolutely disastrous mistake made by the Corp of Engineers. The legend is, they basically built the lake on the wrong drainage which never filled the lake more than 5% of its capacity. However, there was definitely a silver lining to the failed project; it created an absolute Oasis of excellent hunting in the heart of the Oklahoma Panhandle. The Optima Wildlife Management Area and Optima Wildlife Refuge are both examples, and this property borders them. It also borders the 335-acre Optima Safety Zone, full of cover, and created as a no-hunting sanctuary. The trail-cam pics let the ranch’s hunting-potential speak for itself. Make sure and take the time to go through the trail-camera pictures, you’ll see big Whitetail, big Muley’s, Bull Elk, Rio Grande Turkey, Bobwhite Quail, Blue Quail, Bobcats, and more. The tract has ½ mile of Beaver River frontage on the south end, pavement access on the north, and electricity. It has 2 water wells, 5 food-plots, and can be accessed on both the north and south. If you’re in the market for a great hunting property that offers a large variety of wildlife, primarily top-end whitetail and muley bucks, don’t hesitate to call and schedule a showing.
