As I walked this property for the first time as a avid hunter I was instantly excited with small herds of Elk and Mule deer popping up as I walked. The property has small pockets and potholes everywhere…as soon as I thought I had seen it all I stumbled onto another pocket. These small pockets are filled with serviceberry bushes and aspen trees to provide great cover for game. On the east side there are much larger groves of aspen trees and cover. This property is very secluded and private as it has 2 mountains on it consisting of Camel Back Mountain and Bible Back Mountain. This property backs up to BLM lands on 2 sides and the BLM land has very limited access to the general public because of larger private ranches blocking the public access. This Ranch is in Colorado Hunting Unit 5 and qualifies for the land owner vouchers. This property is located 3 miles from the Wyoming border and the east end backs up to the Routt County line. The topography on this ranch varies tremendously throughout from rolling hills to steep mountain sides making this a great hunting property. The hunting isn’t the only thing this ranch has to offer, it features good grass for grazing cattle in the summer months. This is a tremendous Ranch for a tremendous price and it will not last!!

Income on the ranch: The ranch currently has a gravel lease paying $100,000 per year until the year 2022. This annual payment is made by a gravel company to keep the right to excavate during that time period. There is also a 50 cent/ton royalty when the excavation begins. This will give the new owner an estimated $4-5,000,000 in royalties. What makes this lease extremely positive is the fact that when the dig is completed the new owner will be left with 7 ponds or lakes that can be sold and or leased as water storage and the owner could keep the surface water rights and utilize the ponds for fishing or hunting or a park type setting. With the current market value of sealed storage bringing $3,500/acre foot. This ranch has the capability to nearly pay for itself in the next 5-7 years! For those of you who may have some concerns of the flood, the ranch and river bottom is in the process of being cleaned up and is being re-vegetated and should be back to its original beauty by mid-summer.
