Wyoming Hunting Property: The fortunate few big game hunters who have been privileged to visit this Wyoming ranch for sale in the Laramie Mountains have discovered that “Wyoming Territory” is alive and well here. Completely surrounded by other private land, the OX Ranch controls almost 10,000 acres (4,812 deeded, 5,000 leased state and BLM lands) of ideal mule deer and elk habitat of proven productivity. Giant bucks grossing from 180 to over 200 Boone and Crockett points and bulls scoring from 350 to over 400 call this piece of unspoiled “Wyoming Territory” home, leading one state Game and Fish official to observe, “When you hunt the OX you have a chance to take something truly spectacular.” “Spectacular” has included Wyoming’s state record bull elk, which was an OX animal.

“Water changes everything” on the OX Ranch. Dotting the hills of the OX Ranch are over 40 seeps and springs and one year-round stream that are the secret to maintaining the large herds of deer and elk on the property. Many of these springs could be developed into sizable watering holes or ponds. Three spring-fed trout ponds already exist, each of which holds slab-sided brook trout up to two pounds. With additional pond development, the OX Ranch could become a trophy stillwater trout fishing destination as much as it already is for trophy hunting.

The Laramie Mountains on this Wyoming ranch for sale range from 6000 to 7000 feet, and its hills are blanketed with a mosaic of grass, sagebrush, Ponderosa pines and rugged granite outcrops. Mule deer, elk, antelope and mountain lions flourish on the ranch, and each species offers a unique hunting opportunity. The ranch’s plentiful water sources also support significant populations sharp-tailed and sage grouse, ptarmigan, chukar and dove, completing the list of the remarkable variety of hunting options available on its sixteen square miles.

The Old West lives at the OX Ranch. Indian artifacts are found throughout the ranch, and tipi rings can still be seen at select locations. Legendary outlaw Tom Horn reputedly used the ranch as one of his hideouts, thanks to its numerous springs. Finally, one of North America’s few diamond mines was located a few miles southeast of the ranch, in the same geological formation that exists on the OX!

Although a trip to the OX Ranch takes you back to Wyoming much as it was in the 1870s, you won’t have to lay out a bedroll under the stars (unless you want to). Improvements include a comfortable three-bedroom home with deck and an additional hunting cabin (housing up to four), and ranch facilities for handling 300 pair of cattle. Good fences and stock ponds exist throughout the property. Year-round access is convenient, as the property lies only 20 miles from I-25 at Wheatland, and 45 minutes from Laramie or three hours from Denver, all on good roads.
