Productive Hay Ground in Crawford, Colorado

This high-production land itself is a treasure, with approximately 160+/- irrigated acres including a portion of freshly seeded alfalfa, making it a haven for wildlife as well as incredible farm ground. The owner has made some incredible improvements by adding the center pivot to the ranch. In addition to this they added big guns and some new side roll sprinklers. There were a series of ponds and seeps that were covered, and some juniper cleared so the pivot could make a full circle.

The big guns cover the north corners and the side rolls with some portable big guns cover the south end with a small portion of the east field being still gated pipe. Water rights are adequate with 5040 shares of Fruitland Irrigation, supporting the 90+ acre center pivot, side rolls, big guns, and gated pipe. Grow hay and sell it or grow hay to feed some animals.

Prime Colorado Hunting Opportunities

Sportsmen will delight in the abundance of elk, mule deer, and wild turkeys present on the Mountain View Ranch. Trophy mule deer and elk have been harvested off the ranch, which also qualifies for the landowner voucher system. Situated in unit 63, known for its trophy mule deer and healthy elk herd, the ranch is less than a mile from thousands of acres of public land for hunting and recreation.

Mule deer tags in unit 63 are by draw only. It will take at a minimum a couple years to draw a 2nd season buck tag so the owner counts on drawing a landowner voucher for the ranch to secure a buck tag each year. The elk hunting is an easy draw for 1st and 4th season with 2nd and 3rd being over the counter tags.
