Property Description

Drop Tine Ranch, bordering the Jicarilla Apache Reservation

Trophy Mule Deer & Elk property bordering the Jicarilla Apache Reservation. 

Tucked into a hidden corner of the Jicarilla Apache Reservation is the 2149 acres (1519 Deeded, +/ - 630 BLM) of the Drop Tine Ranch. It lies in the very heart of UNIT 5A, coveted New Mexico's Rio Arriba County, the number one producer of B&C mule deer consistently since 1960. The Drop Tine Ranch has been managed exclusively for elk and mule deer hunting and has incredible private access through the Jicarilla Apache Reservation.  The east side is a private high fence ranch, with the entire west boundary the Jicarilla, and complimented by power, an excellent water well and 9 waterholes.  The ranch draws 4 buck rifle tags, unlimited archery deer tags, 3 bull elk tags, 4 cow elk tags and 1 either sex archery elk tags. The ranch has produced very good hunting from the first day of archery season to the last day of rifle season. All tags are currently available for the 2018 season.

New Mexico is the premiere state out west when it comes to landowner incentive programs for enhancing the game on ones property with regard to more tags, longer seasons, or both with regard to deer and/or tags (see attached programs).

In New Mexico the landowner can pick and choose any 5-day period from Oct 1 to Dec 31 for the use of his/her elk tags…very flexible.  The buck tags are for rifle in one of the most coveted areas for trophy mule deer in the world.  Even in 2012, one of the driest on record, the ranch still carried water in 9 waterholes with over 50 head of cattle on the ranch.  A very nice flock of Merriam’s Turkeys calls the ranch home as well. 


The ranch has incredible water disbursement with numerous food plots in place.  The ranch is approximately 2 ½ hours north of Albuquerque and has extremely secluded end-of-the-road access. There are 3 gas well pads on the ranch and no minerals available.


The Drop Tine Ranch is truly a one-of-a-kind location that cannot be equaled at any price. It is ideal for the mule deer/elk hunting family or partnership, with an incredible opportunity to own one of the very best hunting ranches, in one of the very best locations that exists today, for an asking price of $3,975,000. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. Exclusive private showings available for qualified buyers. Co-brokers welcome.
