One of Colorado’s finest hunting ranches: Expansive tracts of true wilderness located within an hour’s drive of Colorado’s largest metropolitan area are virtually nonexistent, yet that precisely describes this Colorado ranch for sale. This legacy ranch for sale is Colorado’s Front Range Elk and Deer Hunting Preserve. Situated only eight miles east of the resort town of Estes Park and ten miles southwest of Loveland, this Colorado hunting ranch benefits from the large herds of elk and deer protected within the boundaries of Rocky Mountain National Park. Trophy elk and deer range freely onto this Colorado hunting property from Rocky Mountain National Park and the adjacent Roosevelt National Forest, and 330-class bulls and 170-class bucks are not uncommon. Outdoorsmen seeking a Colorado ranch for an extraordinary hunting or wildlife preserve will find no better candidate in the Front Range than the Daymaker Ranch.
Solitude is one of the Daymaker Ranch’s prime assets. Because this Colorado ranch for sale is exceptionally well-blocked and located in two valleys with physical barriers to trespass and visual distractions, it offers absolute privacy, free from intruding electrical lighting and highway or other noise from neighboring properties. Staring at the stars from the absolute silence of the hunting cabin, visitors to the ranch can imagine themselves back in the wilderness of 1800, free from the bright lights and background noise of civilization. Yet the ranch is only minutes away from the cuisine, entertainment, and comfort offered by the cities of the Colorado Front Range. Morning may bring the bugling of a bull elk or the sight of a foraging bear within one of the few vestiges of the Rocky Mountains as they were before civilization encroached.
