Operational & Recreational Resources:
Spring Creek Ranch is a multifaceted property with a proven agricultural operation boasting exceptional native grasses with a mix of both upland prairie and sub irrigated hay bottoms making abundant opportunities for grazing and hunting. The ranch is currently run as a small but productive cattle operation and has great infrastructure already in place. There is a 2BR ranch home, detached garage, numerous equipment/hay barns, as well as livestock facilities for calving, working pens, etc. Overall, Spring Creek Ranch is well-equipped and functional for most grazing operations. Perhaps the most attractive asset to the ranch is Spring Creek which originates on the deeded land and arises from a high-volume spring only a stone’s throw from the ranch headquarters. With a steady volume of clean and cold water coming out of the ground year-round the potential for fisheries development along Spring Creek is certainly feasible especially given the fact that there is electricity at the headquarters where an aeration system could be installed. Around the headquarters there has been some work done to create a few small fishing ponds with improved spillways where the Creek then meanders and bends throughout the ranch for approximately 1.5 miles. Spring Creek Ranch sits in a wildlife filled alpine valley surrounded by large private ranches making the hunting fantastic. The ranch meets the standards for landowner tags which an owner would receive two Elk, two Deer, and two Pronghorn tags annually with good populations for each big game species. The game management unit for Elk is unit 8 which is a limited draw area with a season running from September (archery) through the end of January giving you the flexibility to hunt migrating and wintering herds of Elk which are seen on the property regularly.
Overall Spring Creek Ranch is a rare combination Ranch with exceptional operating and recreational features in a highly desirable location. With minor adjustments to the grazing practices and facilities along with some emphasis on wildlife and fisheries development the value and utility of Spring Creek Ranch is endless.
