An Alternative Investment

There are two advantages to consider when looking to buy a Colorado hunting property, or any form of ranchland: the business and the investment. The first advantage is the business, meaning whatever you choose to use your land for (hunting, fishing, cattle, etc.). Quality, large acreage land will speak for itself in terms of how well your business does.

The second advantage in owning a Colorado hunting property is the investment that comes from owning the land. Rather than placing your money in high-risk stocks, you can invest it in land that can earn you a substantial return. Similar to timberland and large real estate, when added to your investment portfolio, the average annual investment returns on ranchland can increase while the overall volatility of your portfolio will decrease or remain the same.

So, your ranch can make you money in the short term, depending on your business, and the land you own will appreciate and be a return on your investment in the long run. Mark Twain said, “Buy land. They’re not making it anymore,” and he was prophetically correct.

Trophy Colorado Wildlife

Aside from exceptional deer and elk hunting, Colorado is home to different game that is rare to find throughout the rest of the West. Specific Colorado hunting ranches allow the opportunity for antelope hunting, bighorn sheep hunting, and mountain goat hunting. Buffalo and bear hunting are also popular big-game attractions in Colorado.

Our private Colorado hunting ranches also provide a space with zero hunting pressure. Rather than dealing with overcrowded public hunting land during peak seasons, you can own your own large acreage hunting property that offers the same, if not better, hunting opportunities. With less hunting pressure, you are more likely to see larger herds and have a higher chance for a successful hunt.

Where is the Best Elk Hunting In Colorado?

Western Colorado is the best region of the state for elk hunting, specifically Northern Colorado counties like Moffat and Routt County. Gunnison, Hinsdale, Ouray, and Montrose Counties also offer world-class elk hunting for those looking to hunt in Southern Colorado.

Our Colorado hunting ranches for sale in the Yampa River Valley put you front and center for some of the best elk hunting the Rocky Mountains have to offer. Second rifle hunting season is when this region sees the largest herds, and licenses are readily available for muzzleloading, archery, and rifle hunting.

Where is the Best Deer Hunting in Colorado?

White-tailed and mule deer can be found in many habitats, which is why Colorado boasts some of the best deer hunting in the Rockies. The mixture of different landscapes and habitats allow for great deer hunting throughout most of the state. Our Colorado hunting ranches for sale in Meeker and Steamboat Springs have produced trophy bucks that would be hard to bag anywhere else.

However, some of the best deer hunting can also be found in the eastern part of the state, specifically in northern counties like Sedwick, Weld, and Lincoln Counties. Southern Colorado also offers some fantastic deer hunting as well, particularly in Las Animas and Otero County. The weedy brush areas common throughout this region attract large herds to land that is easier to navigate.
