Sold New Mexico Ranches: Located in the midst of an ecosystem renowned for producing massive elk, this New Mexico ranch for sale has been called by Wayne Carlton “one of the best elk places in the world.” Boone & Crockett 400-class bull elk range on more than 30 square miles (14,858 deeded acres and 4,368 leased acres), fed on a rich diet of native high-protein grasses and watered by eight wells. The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish has designated the area for long-term trophy management and restricts hunting to bow and muzzleloader rifle only. This New Mexico ranch for sale receives 15 landowner bull tags annually, and its hunters often see the largest elk of their lives. Trophy elk hunting and cattle ranches surround this New Mexico ranch for sale on three sides, and Cibola National Forest borders on the east.
Situated in the pristine rolling highlands of northern Catron County at 7700 to 8200 feet, this New Mexico ranch for sale is mostly woodland comprised of a mix of pinion pine, alligator juniper and ponderosa pine. Vigorous herds of elk, mule deer and pronghorn are native to the property’s hills, meadows and draws, and the ranch can also support cattle if desired. This magnificent hunting retreat has a relatively mild climate, year-round access, power and telephone available. Albuquerque is only 2.5 hours away; Santa Fe, 3.5 hours, both via excellent roads.
