No. 12 Wilks Brothers
FRAC TECH founders Farris and Dan Wilks own ranches in Oregon, Tennessee, and Texas, and they rank as the state’s leading landowners in Montana and Idaho. At least they did at press time. Wilks Ranch Brokers (wilksranchbrokers.com) just listed four of the Wilks’s Montana properties – 13,107-acre BULL MOUNTAIN RANCH ($14.75 million), 5,710-acre LITTLE SNOWY MOUNTAIN RANCH ($12.25 million), 10,206-acre SAGE CREEK RANCH ($8.998 million), and 9,680-acre ROSEBUD MOUNTAIN RANCH ($7.854 million) – as well as 50,000 acres of their Idaho holdings.
