Broken Butt Ranch New Mexico: Never before offered on the market, the Broken Butt Ranch in northern New Mexico easily qualifies as one of the largest remaining elk-rich mountain ranches in the state. The ranch’s 16,309 deeded acres lie squarely in the path of a major elk migration route between the high San Juan Mountains and the wintering grounds of New Mexico, and guarantees a healthy population of animals during hunting season. With impressive size, superb habitat and excellent year-round access, Broken Butt Ranch has an unexaggerated potential as a big game hunting property of national significance.
Named for a rifle with a broken stock found on the ranch in the early 1900s, Broken Butt Ranch has a long history of careful management as a joint cattle and hunting property. Sole family ownership has provided excellent stewardship of this special property for over 100 years. Ideally suited for summer cattle grazing, the ranch has supported up to 1500 yearling cattle, which historically has nicely complemented its big game opportunities. Broken Butt Ranch is unencumbered by any easements (but could be a candidate for a conservation easement) and includes 100% of its mineral rights.
