This is a Central Idaho timber and recreation ranch that represents what everyone dreams of owning. Traverse through the dense mature timber stands, through the grassy meadows, down the long ridges, and look over the wild Salmon River Canyon and you will immediately fall in love. This is a great opportunity to own a property that hasn’t been available in a long time. Welcome to the Boles Ranch!
The Boles Ranch is approximately 1,718.5+- acres located in an area known as the Joseph Plains approximately 31 miles Southwest of Cottonwood, Idaho. The property is guarded by locked gates accessible by private easements. There’s a lot to be found on the Boles Ranch, and people are not one of those things. The topography is flatter on top and gradually becomes steeper and steeper as it breaks off towards the Salmon River. The elevation gradient ranges from approximately 4,350 ft at the top of the ranch to around 1,800 ft at the bottom offering an abundance of biodiversity. Within the boundaries of the Boles Ranch you will find approximately 440 +- acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) inholdings. Because of the lack of public access, people often refer to these BLM inholdings as “Bonus Acres”.
Located on the property overlooking the ranch and Salmon River Canyon is a tastefully built hunting cabin. The cabin features a wrap around covered porch, large kitchen, and dining area. Towards the back of the cabin is a large bedroom used as a sleeping area. Solar panels and a backup generator are used to power this off grid cabin and water is supplied by a natural spring. Numerous memories have been made here with friends and family enjoying great times together. A small storage shed is located just outside the cabin for storing tools, hanging wild game, and storing ATV’s out of the weather.
Located in Hunting Unit #13, the Boles Ranch offers abundant hunting opportunities. An overall lack of public land within the hunting unit is believed to draw the general hunting public away from applying for tags. This has allowed for hunting tags to be more readily available to landowners than in other units within the State. According to Idaho Fish and Game (IDFG), an overall lack of hunting pressure has helped contribute to some very healthy trophy class whitetail deer, mule deer, and rocky mountain elk. A combination of predator control and great habitat has contributed to the Boles Ranch being among the best in the area. All prospective buyers to confirm with IDFG any information related to Unit 13 hunting information.
This property has been held and enjoyed by the same family since the early 1980’s. If you’re lucky enough to witness what a special place the Boles Ranch is, you will understand why land like it rarely comes up for sale. Don’t miss this opportunity. Schedule a showing today.
