The ranch boasts 130 feet of elevation change from Muddy Boggy Creek up to the top of the highest ridge. Approximately 300 acres of the property is in timber, 120 acres in meadows and scattered trees and another 24 acres are in open pasture along Highway 48 and an open field along Muddy Boggy Creek that's perfect for a food plot. The meadow areas offer the type of transitional setting that encourages the growth of native browse needed to support deer through the summer months while the timbered portions provides acorns for the fall and winter. Although existing trails allow easy access to most of the ranch, there is a 155 acre block that acts as a sanctuary. The property has good boundary and cross fencing. Up to 195 additional acres of pasture can also be purchased with this tract if you are looking for more of a combination cattle and recreational ranch. As an added bonus, this would also provide road frontage on a paved county road.
The property also includes a 2.5 acre lake fed by two drainages. This lake is filled with bronze tinted water typical of heavy forested drainages and is ringed with a narrow strip of aquatic vegetation. It has two nice arms that extend to shallows located in each drainage. The point between the two arms is begging for the construction of a cabin or home overlooking the lake. Water and electric services could be easily run to this point from the Highway 48 frontage to the east. Nine hundred and fifty feet of creek, as well as a 3/4 acre pond and two other small ponds ensure that water is available to wildlife on all parts of the ranch.
In addition to great views generated by the elevation change, the property also has some other interesting features including a small cave and cliff overhang. Multiple inscriptions are carved into the sandstone rock of these natural features and some date back to statehood. Both have game trails leading to them and appear to be acting as shelter to wildlife.
The outstanding native genetics of whitetail deer in this area have been extensively studied and documented on the former Nobel Foundation Deer Research Unit located just 1.5 miles to the southeast of the ranch. This combination of transitional features, large neighbors, seclusion, timbered bedding areas, browse filled meadows and water make Eastridge Ranch a unique opportunity for those wishing to manage for trophy whitetails. Recent game camera photos have captured some nice examples of the bucks that the property is currently producing with no wildlife management. In addition, large numbers of wild hogs are also on the property making this an ideal situation for the buyer who wants to enjoy the year round action of hog hunting plus the joy of managing for trophy whitetails.
