The Historic Turkey Track Ranch
The Turkey Track Ranch actually is one of the first major ranches in the Texas Panhandle and traces it's beginnings to Richard McNalty who established the ranch in 1878. His ownership was brief when he moved on in 1881. The ranch changed hands a few times over the next few years and by 1883 an English company Hansford Land and Cattle took ownership, the group expanded the ranch through the purchase of Thomas S. Bugbee's Quarter Circle T ranch and William Anderson's Scissors Ranch near adobe wells. The acquisitions brought the ranch up to it's current size today. Ownership changes over the years have eventually put it in the hands of two families, The Cobles and the Whittenburgs who have maintained and stewarded the land for over 100 years.
Lands that were eventually part of the Turkey Track had a hand in Texas History too. Famous names like Charles Goodnight are associated with the ranch and The Battle of Adobe Walls also took place not too far from the ranch with fighting between The US Army led by Kit Carson and Native American tribes which would eventually lead to an agreement with Quanah Parker nearly a decade later in 1874 just a few years before the establishment.
