Detailed Description:

This narrow tract of land is one mile long and sits a couple of miles south of the Red River, just west of the Spanish Fort community in northern Montague County, Texas. With 54.23 surveyed acres, the land offers a variety of uses and functionality. It is within two hours of either Dallas or Fort Worth, and only 1.5 hours from Wichita Falls.


Of these 54 acres, approximately 30 acres consists of farm land and 24 acres of wooded native pasture. According to the USDA website, the farm land is 99% Teller loam soil, with 0 to 1 percent slope, and is described as “prime farmland” and “well drained”. It has been used in the past to grow wheat for winter grazing for cattle, but has sat fallow for the last year and is full of volunteer wheat. It could easily be put in coastal bermuda or wildlife grasses, if you did not want to have the land cultivated any more.

The 24 acres of native pasture is full of mature mesquite trees, with a few groves of honey locust. Hardwoods include some scattered elms and hackberries, willows along the creek, and a towering native pecan tree in the back. Dense grasses, mainly coastal, could be used for rotational grazing. A branch of Village Creek runs through the middle of the property, which collects and runs water from seasonal rains. Some of the neighbors upstream have built ponds off of this creek, so it provides the opportunity to build a nice tank as well. The main Village Creek runs just south of the property line and is lined with dense hardwood motts. You can see trail after trail from deer traveling from this creek bottom through the subject property’s native pasture to get to the wheat fields on the north side. Buck rubs and prints are everywhere back here. You will also find hog rubs on trees and their rooting along the creek.

This property is perfect for a private whitetail deer hunting spot. There doesn’t seem to be much hunting going on around the property either. We have set up a staging area in the back with a corn feeder, and it will be conveyed with the sale. The land could be used for either bow or rifle hunting, as there are thick brushy areas to put up ground blinds and meadow clearings for shooting.


The whole perimeter has a barbed wire fence, with metal t-posts and pipe corners. The corners are cemented in and very strong. The entrance gate on Howard Rd. is pipe as well. One cross fence divides the pasture from the field, and at this cross fence is a set of working pens. Electricity is already ran over to the pens, and there is a meter in place, so if you wanted to park an RV or camping trailer, it is ready to go. A 110 outlet is hooked up to the meter for you to use. There is an old water well too, but it is sanded in. If you wanted to drill a new water well, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding water within 200′; the estimated cost of this well is $5,000.

With the utilities already on the property, it would be a great place to build a home. The property has frontage on its north side on Howard Rd., a gravel road; FM 103, a paved road going all the way to Nocona, is only a few miles away. Lake Nocona, a public fishing and recreational lake with 1,325 surface acres, is just five minutes away.


This is a very clean farm in a nice area of Montague County. All of the neighbors upkeep their places, so the views across the surrounding countryside are aesthetically appealing. Very little traffic passes by on the road, and even the traffic that does you can’t hear because the hunting pasture is so far back (over a half mile away). Whether you wanted to build a home, use it for hunting, or just hang out on the weekends, this farm is well rounded enough to suit all your needs.
