Hunting and Livestock
Turkey Ranch is a sportsman paradise with free range mule deer, whitetail, quail, dove, and hog hunting. Large populations of these various game species inhabit the ranch, and have been largely unbothered for decades. Large amounts of brush cover, as well as various foraging and water sources, wildlife has no reason to leave. Turkey Ranch has a full perimeter fence, as well as various cross fencing options for the cattle producer. With a stocking rate of approximately 30 acres per animal unit, a rancher could produce nearly 40 cow calf pairs with little to no input. Additionally, the rolling hills are ideal for various recreational activities such as off-roading or horseback riding.
The CRP Program
This property is enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program which pays on a yearly basis at approximately $33,000, with the last payment in 2022. The CRP program does not affect any type of hunting on the property, but allows for a great return on investment for any use. The CRP is essentially a land conservation program administered by the FSA. The program essentially functions as a rental program where the government pays the rancher to help maintain various native wildlife and forage species. The goal of the program, signed into law by President Reagan in 1985, is to improve water quality, reduce soil erosion, and increase habitat for threatened or endangered species.
