Dry Creek Legacy Ranch
*$4,500,000 *3,000 Plus-or-Minus Acres *San Miguel County, CO
The Dry Creek Legacy Ranch is approximately 3,000 acres of prime grazing and elk and mule deer hunting ground. Located in southwest Colorado near Norwood and 60 miles from Telluride, 2 hours from the Montrose airport and 1-1/2 hours from Cortez, it has excellent first-priority water rights that will irrigate hundreds of acres of pasture, which, if planted in alfalfa, could turn this into an elk magnet. Bordering BLM ground, the property includes a BLM permit integrated with deeded land. Located just off the west side of North Mountain, known for its sheer quantity and quality of elk, this hidden gem has the potential to be one of the region’s best elk hunting ranches. Ideally situated, the property is on the migration route between the North Mountain summer range and the Dry Creek Basin and Disappointment Valley winter ranges.
Priced at about $1,500 an acre with fabulous views, you won’t find a better value in southwestern Colorado. One unique and stellar aspect of the property is that within a 5-mile drive, its elevation spans from the pasture country at 7,000 feet to nearly 9,000 feet on top, all on one 3,000-acre parcel. The lower elevation features a 2-plus-mile-long valley and the upper elevation is a round-topped mountain covering almost 2 miles.
There are considerable properties in Colorado with great views, but many of them don’t have elk. The ranch is in Big Game Unit 70, which offers hunters over-the-counter elk tags for most seasons. Deer tags can be drawn on average every other year, but 4 landowner vouchers are available through the draw every year. Dwellings include a small two-bedroom home, two insulated hunters’ cabins and a large steel building for storing your toys.
