Default My new Grayson Co property!

Well, I am about to own 40 acres in Grayson! I have been quite about it until funding was secured. Its all good to go, just waiting on survey which happens next week then we close.

I am pumped to say the least. I am about 2 Miles West from Hagerman and large creek runs thru it. Its approx 80% cover with some really large hardwoods in the bottom. I have seen a lot of deer sign, but way to much pig sign.

Currently a nephew of the elderly owner hunts it and has 3 feeders running w/o pens. Weird thing is he has no stands? Anyways pigs have made the place a home. I will deal with them soon enough.

Once I close I will start sharing with you the improvements and game pics. I plan on setting a cabin in Feb and building 2 ea 1/2 acres pens. I will drop a protein feeder in them this spring and food plots next Fall.

So much to do! Meeting fence contractor next week to fence it as some borders are not fenced. I can tell its probably been been poached hard as there is no fence or gate and way to many tire tracks. Thankfully no trash has been dumped. Its has 377 frontage and that's where I think others are getting in.

Stay tuned!

Wolfvalley building seems to be good deal and leaning towards them for the cabin. The other great thing its only 5 minutes to Cedar Bayou Marina where I keep my boat.

Awesome feeling - just bought some acreage this year and can't think of one downside thus far. buy some extra trail cams for security and some bright new NO TRESPASSING signs! look forward to the pics.

myself and the group would probably like to know what the survey costs for this size of property. my bank took a survey that was a number of years old so i didn't need to pay for a new one.

Its pretty much only thing for sale over there. Been for sale for a bit, but I got them down on price.

I would like to meet or talk to who was hunting it if you can share.

Approx 2700 for survey due to its thick with a creek.

Congrats. I just recently purchased a neighboring piece of property to what I already have to give me almost 50 acres. Mine is also west of Hagerman, but I'm a little further away than 2 miles. If my knowledge of the creeks out there are any good I'm willing to bet the same creeks run through both our places. I've noticed that the pig population out my way comes and goes, I'll have a huge group coming in for about a week and then disappear for up to a month. They're running the creek hard.

Congrats, its a great feeling pulling into "your" gate to go get on the stand.

$2700 on the survey is a pretty fair shake for a brushy 40 acre tract with a creek on it, just FYI. I'd recommend walking the property lines sooner rather than later, maybe set some T-posts at any corners the surveyors find/set so you will always know where they are in the future. I'm curious to what the fencing quote will run.

Looking forward to progress pics, I need to update my thread after seeing this.

You're a little farther north than I thought. And I'd say a little farther away than 2 miles from Hagerman. My place is between 377 and 901 and I think I'm about 3-4 miles from old sadler rd. Also don't trust the fence locations out there. My property markers were about 6' on the neighbors side of the fence.

Probably for the best. Word in the TBH street is that the Hagerman neighbors have ruined the place. There's also a biologist who will advise you of bucks that are ok to shoot.

I've worked on all of those Moran wells right there to the south of you. I've seen a lot of good deer in there and plenty of hogs.

I just sold the 35 acres north and west of the creek from you on the other side of 377. It
bordered the Mahard property. I know your realtor real well and also the owners of the 1.6 mil place. Grew up and still own a real estate sale office in Whitesboro. If you have any questions holler.

We tried buying a place on Dixie few yrs back but already had a contract on it, lot's of deer and timber. Worked out better for us in the long run. You shouldn't have any problem selling when you're ready !!
