ZAR 3,700,000Location The farm is situated 43.5km from the outskirts of P.E. with only 9kms of this distance being on gravel road. Size Made up of a single title, the property is 185.64 ha in extent - there is also an additional 15 hectares "inherited" from Groendal Nature Reserve. It boasts a good grazing capacity in addition to truly fantastic available browse matter. Description This area of the Eastern Cape between the Elandsrivier and the Kwazungu River is one of the prettiest pieces of real estate in the province. Comprising a series of higher plateaus and valleys as well as the flood plain of the Elandsrivier that meanders through this property. This crystal clear river is home to both small mouth and large mouth bass and there are even fish eagles to complete this picture perfect setting. The farm offers truly outstanding views of the mountain ranges of the Baviaanskloof Mega Reserve to the South and West and densely vegetated mountains of Groendal Nature Reserve to the North. Veld types The farm is made up of a combination of sweet thorn, grassveld and denser Cape valley bushveld as well as some forest. The almost ideal combinations of browse and graze are testified to by the species diversity found on the property, all of which are breeding well and appear in excellent condition. There is also 38 head of cattle grazing on this farm. Grass species found include Digitaria Smutsii, Eriantha, perennial Pannicums and Cynodon Dactylon. While the latter grass species can be of marginal value in harder areas, here by virtue of the fertile soils and high rainfall, it is a superb grazing grass and is well used right through the year. Tree species include: wild olive, milkwood, yellowwood, candlewood, cape plain, euphorbia, cabbage tree, common guarri, boerbean and sweet thorn. Rainfall The farm falls in a transition summer / winter rainfall area with an annual average of 600mm. Improvements A 2.4m high game fence of very high specification (21 strand) encloses the entire property. There is nearly 8kms of fencing which cost in the region of about R 350 000 and add to this the value of the introduced game at around R 150 000. There is a spacious 3 bed home with 2 bathrooms and huge porch complete with braai. There is one staff house and 1 small open shed. The main water supply comes from a strong fountain on the neighbouring Groendal Reserve and this water is gravity fed via a 40mm PVC pipe which is constantly running. This pipe fills a large concrete reservoir from where water is gravity fed elsewhere on the farm while the supply to the house comes directly from the cool, clear pool at the source of the fountain. This water costs approximately R 100/month and is also used to irrigate +- 10 ha of grazing along the river bank. In addition there is the perennial stream as well as 1 borehole and 1 small earth dam (holds water all year) on the elevated part of the farm. Power is supplied from a 50kv Eskom transformer. Wildlife species Game species that are currently on the property include:Mountain Reedbuck Bushbuck Blesbuck 14 Grysbok Zebra 4 Caracal Waterbuck 4 Common Duiker Red Hartebeest 4 Kudu Impala 35 Bushpig The bird life is phenomenal with species like knysna lourie, narina trogon and the resident fish eagles to name just a few. Conclusion This farm is incredibly scenic and the topography of this property would lend itself well to a game based, outdoor living eco estate or alternatively a lodge/conference/wellness or wedding venue. Alternatively simply indulge in ones own private getaway which could just as easily become a permanent residence due to its close proximity to P.E. Price R 3 700 000 plus Vat if applicable. Price includes all game but excludes the cattle.Property Features: Reception Rooms Carport Living Rooms (www.holprop.com - ad: ZA4563210)

The lower creamery ditch crosses at a diagonal from the southwest corner to the northeast corner. The 264 acres of irrigated cropland are located throughout the property with springs and wetland areas interspersed throughout the corridors, separating the farmland and significantly adding to the wildlife habitat. Improvements are located on the northern edge of the property. The 3-bedroom, 2-bath ranch house was built in 1910 and remodeled in 1965, and is in poor to fair condition. The 24" x 30" garage was built in 2000, and the 30" x 40" open face shed was built in 1964. Both of these buildings are in fair condition. The current ownership has managed Running Colter primarily to promote wildlife habitat and property health. A neighboring rancher currently leases the crop and hay grounds for production. To maximize the game bird and wildlife habitat, no grazing has currently been utilized. Running Colter has ample water to irrigate the 264 acres currently being farmed, with a diversity of sources of the irrigation rights. Water is applied through flooding and the use of the 3 center pivot irrigation systems. This property is extremely well watered for agricultural purposes with the supplemental benefits of increased wildlife habitat. The property is home to an incredible diversity of game and non-game birds, along with plentiful wildlife. Whitetail deer, pheasants and many types of waterfowl are found in abundance. Hungarian Partridge, dove, moose and Black bear are not uncommon. Raptors including Bald eagles, Great Horned owls, Red-tailed and Rough-legged hawks, and Kestrel falcons at times call this property home. The number and variety of songbirds that can be seen at the bird feeders off the back porch are incredible. Other full time or part time residents to this paradise include Red fox, coyotes, mink, river otter, turkey, marmot, Ruffed grouse and raccoon. The hunting dogs will be eager to work for game birds along the many water features of Running Colter Ranch. The waters of Bull Run Creek have been enhanced for both trout and waterfowl. The grain fields lining the creek willow for excellent feed and cover close to the water sources. Bull Run Creek spring creek is one of the hidden angling gems in the Gallatin valley, offering great opportunities for the fly fisherman. The springs and water expressions provide the warm groundwater needed to allow for cold weather waterfowl opportunities.

The COW CREEK MOUNTAIN RANCH, situated in the beautiful Laramie Mountains in northeastern Albany County, Wyoming offers privacy and seclusion. The closest, most easily accessible city is Laramie, home to the University of Wyoming, Wyoming Technical Institute, and a branch of Laramie County Community College, making it a popular entertainment hub of educational, cultural, historical and sports activities. At elevations between 7,000' and 8,400', the Cow Creek Mountain Ranch sits along the southwestern foothills of the magnificent Laramie Mountains and the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest. The terrain consists of open mountain meadows with some sagebrush -- to canyons with beautiful groves of aspen, pine and cedar -- to spectacular rugged rock formations - all providing the perfect habitat and natural cover for a variety of wildlife including trophy elk and deer. Owner-rated as a 100 - 110 animal unit (AU) ranch, the Windy Peak unit at the higher elevation is best utilized as summer pasture and, in a typical year, can accommodate approximately 298 head of brood cows with calves for a 4-month grazing period. Due to the drought conditions over the past years, the owners have elected to instill a two-year non-use management plan to prevent over-grazing and allow the natural forage to recoup. Cow Creek Mountain Ranch lies within Elk Hunt Area 7, making it an outstanding opportunity to own a private, big-game hunting ranch. Another outstanding feature as owner of the ranch is the allotment (by the Wyoming Game & Fish) of two landowner elk permits and two mule deer permits each year in Hunt Area 7. An abundance of natural cover for shelter, along with numerous water sources, ideal forage and unspoiled wide open spaces combine to make the Cow Creek Mountain Ranch the perfect habitat for many varieties of wildlife. The improvements on the Cow Creek Mountain Ranch are well-built and well-maintained structures that offer family and friends truly unique "mountain camping" experiences in a very pristine and private setting. The beautiful main cabin is situated in very scenic setting with spectacular views of the surrounding area. The 11/2 story, 1,460 sq. ft. log structure has 3 bedrooms and 21/2 bathrooms and was built in 2000. This is a "top-of-the-line" mountain cabin with outstanding features - nothing has been spared. The 560 sq. ft. guest cabin above the 2-car garage sleeps four and has a 3/4 bath. The 1,080 sq. ft. bunk house (with attached shed/barn) is basic with a small kitchenette off the sleeping quarters that accommodates 6 people. The 414 sq. ft. barn located off the Esterbrook Road was built in 1920 and is now in the process of being remodeled and restored. The improvements are powered by an off-grid system with a solar panel and batteries. There is a 1,000-gallon propane tank near the main cabin and a 500-gallon propane tank near the guest cabin.

This Foard County farm offers hunting, CRP income, and historical value. It is located just north of the Margaret community on CR 246, only a half mile off of the paved FM 98. This county maintained road receives very little traffic and as such, the place is very private and quiet. The farm is located in a corridor between the Pease River (1.5 miles to the north) and Mule Creek (0.5 miles to the south), with irrigated crops growing on both the east and the west sides. The property has not been hunted in years, and there is very little hunting pressure in the area. Most of the surrounding properties are locally owned and used for agricultural production. This area of Foard County is known for big whitetails, and it is common for bucks to weigh above 200 lbs and score 150-160 B&C. This is due largely to the balance of wooded pasture and irrigated farmland in the Margaret area. Other game in the area includes feral hog and migratory dove, plus predators such as coyote and bobcat. The potential for bobwhites and turkey is here too. The farm has been in the CRP program for over thirty years and currently has a contract in place until September 2020. The yearly payment is about $2100. While the CRP contract prevents actively farming the land right now, it does allow wildlife food plots to be implemented, if desired. This is quality sandy loam land, capable of growing alfalfa, wheat, milo, or cotton. The water table is very shallow, around 20' deep, and as stated above, farms on both sides of this tract are currently being irrigated. On the south side sits an older farm house, with two bedrooms, one bathroom, kitchen, and living room. It has plank flooring, wood siding, and a metal roof about ten years old. Electricity and a water well are already ran to it. The house needs some clean-up, but would work well for a hunting cabin or small residence. This property is the original site of the town of Margaret. The land doesn't have any old buildings on it though, but is all grassland with mesquites and plum thickets across it. There is a nice view of the four Medicine Mounds to the north. Also, just a mile to the east is the Pease River Battleground, which is where Cynthia Ann Parker was rescued from the Comanches in the early days of Texas. Asking Price: $1250/acre (includes 100% of the mineral executory leasing rights!) Call land agent Ben Belew at cell phone (940) 357-9940 for more information and to view this affordable hunting property in person.
