NM Ranch

Broken Butt Ranch

Magnificent panoramic views extend out forever from 7,500-foot to 9500-foot elevations. Immense views of the San Juan mountains, nearby cliffs, and diverse forest and grasslands make this an excellent getaway. Beautiful, healthy stands of ponderosa pine, aspen, Juniper, spruce, and oak help sustain the habitat.

Hunting Operation

The potential of an awesome hunting operation is obvious. Herds of elk traverse the land, migrating between the high San Juan Mountains and wintering grounds. The land’s expanse and geography allow for a four-month hunting season.

The sheer number of qualifying elk tags and mule deer tags is testament to the fine hunting experience. Broken Butt qualifies for 112 elk tags each year. Hunters bring in an abundance of 300+ inch bull elk and 180+ inch bucks. Black bear and turkey at variety to the hunting expedition.

The exceptional Broken Butt Ranch in Northern New Mexico has not previously been offered on the market. For over a century, sole family ownership insisted on careful management as a joint cattle and hunting property.

Parts of the land could be preserved as a conservation easement, if desired.
