Default Found us a small piece of Oklahoma

After looking for a while at properties in Arkansas and Oklahoma, we will be closing on 14 acres in the Sans Bois Mountains (in the Ouchita Mountains) hopefully the first week of February. It is in Latimer County, east of Wilburton. This will be a roughly 500' x 1200' recreational property sitting at about 1300' elevation for us to put a small cabin on and use as a hub for all of the hunting, fishing, hiking, four wheeling, etc, that is that vicinity. It's a pretty place with lots of hardwoods and some cool rock formations. Since it is only a 5.5 hour drive for us, we hope to get up there pretty often. The views are really nice from the property and the neighbor said there are lots of nice deer and black bear in our area with an occasional big cat roaming through. There is a fairly large farm/ranch to the south of the property at the bottom of the mountain and the lady east of us has about 190 acres. The neighbor to the west has 21 acres but works in the oil field and said he isn't home much. The neighbor to the north is retired and just built a nice place on his 20 acres or so across the road. This isn't a lot of land but we are excited to start improving it. I wish I would have got some pics of the view looking to the south. I was too busy exploring the property when we were up there last week and only took a few pics and they aren't that good. Once we close, I will start a progress thread.

It is a beautiful area. We actually stayed in a cabin in Robber's Cave last week while we were looking at several properties. We enjoyed it.

will just be a weekend/ deer camp for us. just going for a full on house since it really wont cost a whole lot extra and the return on investment should nearly double my cost.

I ended up paying about $1850 per acre for this piece. It is "off-grid" though up on a mountain. I could have found a place in Texas but I was mainly looking in the Ozarks and Ouchitas in Arkansas and Oklahoma for a place to build a small mountain cabin for a getaway. Big deer and black bear weren't exactly a turn off either lol.

Closed on the property! Now to find time to get back up there to get a plan together. It will probably be a few weeks before my schedule clears out which is killing me.

Haha....I bet your mind is racing and on information overload. I know mine was when we first closed on our property. Its a great feeling to own your own piece of land...but a helluva lot of work too. Congratulations and best of luck to you as you navigate things. Enjoy the ride brother.
