Hunt creek side with your bow or stake the ground to take long-range rifle shots from several hilly vantage points. Some deer trails can be seen in several locations coming off the top of the bluffs and heading down toward fields along the creek. Without much effort, a hunter could set up on top of a hill, watch the bottom with binoculars and create the chance of earning a trophy as he makes his way to the water for a drink, or stops on the tall grass for a rest.
In between deer and turkey seasons, wild pigs make for fine sport on this land, too. Then, in fall, watch as hundreds of birds flock the land before separating in the springtime. So, no matter what your favorite species of game this place most likely has it. If you have been looking for the perfect place in Oklahoma, this parcel may be just what you are after.
It’s worth noting that a milo crop was planted on the land and after the 2013 crop has been harvested, new possession can take place. Meanwhile, possession of the grassland is completed upon closing of the sale. Milo, or grain sorghum, is a necessary food product for many people around the world. In more than 60 countries, it is a staple product used mainly for livestock feeding, it is also used for human consumption.
What makes milo so popular is that it can also be used for ethanol. Ethanol fuel (ethyl alcohol) is the same type of alcohol found in alcoholic beverages. It is most often used as a motor biofuel additive for gasoline. This renewable natural resource fuel has proven to cut down on tailpipe emissions and reduce the global dependency on petroleum. With more than seven billion people living on the planet and billions of livestock animals, milo plays a major part in feeding and transporting these populations.
