Motley County, Texas

$526,400 - SOLD

The Land

Located eight miles east of Matador, Texas Red Plains is an iconic piece of the vast Rolling Plains rangeland complete with a 1,020+/- square foot home/hunting camp.


With gently rolling hills, the 329 +/- acre Red Plains is a typical slice of the Rolling Plains ecoregion as its plant community consists of mesquite/shortgrass prairie interspersed with succulent plants like prickly pear and yucca.


On the western part of the property, mesquite brushlands provide adequate wildlife bedding areas and ample food.  On the eastern 1/4 of the property, the land changes into open grasslands with silver bluestem, sideoats grama, sand dropseed, and big bluestem as the dominant plants.  


Red Plains is unique in that it is ready to hunt with little or no additional improvements.  With numerous food plots, senderos, a newly constructed pond, deer blinds, tripod stands, game feeders, a travel trailer and dry storage cargo box in place, this ranch has all the recreational user or small rancher needs to get off to a fast start.



The Wildlife

Red Plains lies in the heart of one of the hottest hunting regions in Texas.  As such, you’ll find a diversity of both game and non-game wildlife on the property.  Game animals include mule deer, cottontail rabbits, whitetail deer, mourning doves, bobwhite quail, Rio Grande turkeys, feral pigs, coyotes, and bobcats.


For the nature watcher you’ll also see typical grassland bird species found in the region such as western meadowlarks, scissortailed flycatchers, mockingbirds, and others.  On the Red Plains, you’ll also see Texas Horned Lizards, various small mammals such as jackrabbits, and a host of other reptiles and mammals.



Agricultural Practices

While Red Plains currently has no agricultural production, there is 25 acres of cultivation on the property.  Additionally, the property has many gates and corner braces in place as well as a supply of t-posts and wire.  Once completed, the cross-fencing provides an adequate infrastructure for horse paddocks or an intense rotational cattle grazing program.
