Buying a hunting ranch is one of the biggest decisions many ranch real estate owners will make in their entire life. For this reason, it is important that buyers and ranch brokers do their homework. A buyer will not have the opportunity to hunt the ranch and land before closing when buying a western hunting ranch in most instances. How then are you supposed to know what type of hunting the ranch really has? Below I will disclose a few tips that should help answer that question.

1) Spend as much time on the ranch as you can looking at the available habitat, and what can be done to improve it ie: food plots, water development and enhancement, thinning, and limiting hunting pressure and activity.

2) Look for signs of animal activity. Tracks and skat are great but things like rubs, aspen scars, and dropped antlers can reveal what time of year animals occupy the ranch property for sale.

3) And most importantly, talk with the area biologist. A good conversation with the area biologist is a must before purchasing any hunting ranch. Find out things like hunting pressure, wildlife management goals, current populations, and long term tag and management plans.
