Cottonwood Land & Cattle Ranch Wyoming: Cottonwood Land & Cattle Ranch near Wheatland, Wyoming, shines as a property in which cattle and wildlife thrive together. Watered by eight miles of Cottonwood Creek, and containing ponderosa pine uplands, natural grasslands, irrigated meadows and abundant wetlands, the almost 12,500-acre ranch is an ideal year-round residence of herds of trophy elk, mule and whitetail deer, pronghorn and Merriam turkeys. Elk in particular grow large here, and are among the best in Wyoming’s renowned Area 7, with several Boone and Crockett bulls scoring 350-plus harvested annually. Add in superb duck hunting and fishing opportunities for largemouth bass and rainbow trout in the wetland ponds and the ranch becomes as recreationally diverse a property as can be found in eastern Wyoming.
As a cattle operation, Cottonwood Land & Cattle Ranch supports 350 head of animals year-round, and is self-sustaining thanks to excellent water rights and irrigated hay meadows. A spacious main residence, manager’s home, guest cabin and attendant structures like a horse barn and large equipment shop round out the improvements. With superior access just off of I-25 and only a three hour drive from Denver, Cottonwood Land & Cattle Ranch is easy to reach year-round and is an attractive find for the sportsman, rancher and investor alike.
