Big Game Hunting Properties – Recreation or Income
Could your destiny be in northwestern Colorado? If you want your own 2192 acres out West, it may be time to look at big game hunting properties. Like the iconic Wakara Ranch along the White River in Meeker. We introduced this fantastic recreational real estate in our blog last week. Wakara Ranch lies in Rio Blanco County at 6000+ foot elevations in the Colorado Rockies.
So, let’s delve a bit further into the hunting at Wakara. This enormous ranch for sale sits on the White River outside of Meeker, CO. The White River region hosts the largest herd of elk in the nation. Imagine herds of elk and deer. They come to the riverside. So, naturally, elk traverse the expanses of Wakara Ranch. And they live here all year round.
Trophy sized elk, mule deer, and antelope roam the heavenly fields at Wakara Ranch. We’ve measured bull elk scoring 300-plus and mule deer in the 190-class. Wakara Ranch qualifies for landowner deer tags; elk tags can be purchased over the counter.
Round out the Western Lifestyle
Hunt with family and friends. Run a guide business. Enjoy this extraordinary getaway. The main ranch house (and there are other sleeping quarters as well) sits on the White River shoreline, ready for you to tie your best flies, nymphs or buggers. Live in luxury, too. The new custom ranch home features all the bells and whistles. Heavy log and rock construction complements the property. Get lost in the beauty of 5,093 square feet of Colorado lodge atmosphere. The large modern rustic log cabin has 4 bedrooms, 4 baths and an oversized detached 3-car garage.
In the meantime, the array of horses await in the stable. They are ready to carry you off for hunting trips into the adjacent Oak Ridge State Wildlife Area. But you can hike the course, too. Many relaxing hunting experiences await.
Income Producing Ranch for Sale
Wakara Ranch embodies a Western culture with exceptional opportunities. At $10 million, the list price is a steal. Substantial and senior water rights have assisted owners to capitalize on the beautiful land. Wakara Ranch has been self-sustaining ranch, producing income from hunting, fishing, and cattle production. As a working cattle ranch, facilities accommodate 500 cow/calf pairs. (See our March 3, 2017 blog, “NW Colorado Ranches for Sale – Raise Cattle Fish Hunt,” for details.)
The historic town of Meeker (population 2500) offers shops and restaurants about 10 miles away. It is the seat of Rio Blanco County. The Meeker area features plenty of ranches and excellent outdoor recreation for those who discover the quiet Western lifestyle.
