Wildlife Stewardship on the Ranch can pay off high dividends for the outdoorsman
Embark on a captivating journey alongside elk, mule deer, and other wildlife. This ranch has been home to some true trophy Mule deer along with some great elk herds. The owners and the local outfitter have taken bucks scoring into the 190’s and have taken some nice bull elk off the ranch and the lower BLM ground. The hunting unit is unit 63 which is an over-the-counter unit for archery and two rifle seasons.
The muzzle loader season and the 1st and 4th rifle seasons must be drawn. There are 2 additional cow elk seasons one in August and one in December January for private land only. These tags must be drawn or every year there are leftover tags for these seasons. With a little more focused effort on wildlife habitat the ranch could become a stewardship property that can work hand in hand with a small cattle operation or other livestock.
As the current owners saw the beauty of the ranch and the growth cutting up the area’s family farm, they had the foresight to put the ranch into a conservation easement to protect the property from being developed. Although this has been done there are still some 3 acre building envelopes for additional homes to be constructed on the property. See attached documents for more information on the easements.
