    Description

    Very rare opportunity to own (+/-) 2199 private acres of choice elk hunting land in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Many consider this to be the elk hunting capital of the world! Moffat County, Colorado boasts two of the largest migratory elk herds in North America as well as being a premiere hunting hot spot for mule deer, bear, mountain lion, and a variety of small game. With an Upper Main Log cabin, lower original homestead cabin and 40x60 Metal Shop/Barn, this mass of land will provide the all of the necessities from operating a cattle ranch, to running a world class hunting retreat. The property elevations range from 7300 feet to 8400 feet. Vegetation consists of Aspens, Oak Brush, Sage and (+/-) 90 acres of grass pasture. Elk and deer migrate from the oaks and aspens to the pastures during the evenings. Spring Gulch Ranch offers one of Colorados most sought after commodity WATER. Earthen dams, tanks, and ponds are located throughout the property capturing seasonal water and natural water from the numerous springs found on Spring Gulch Ranch. Yet another reason elk and deer trek to this ranch. Lower ponds offer the bonus of year-round trout fishing! The owners of Spring Gulch Ranch over the years have created a network of 4x4/UTV roads that provide access to a majority of the property and ranch. Historically and presently operating as a cattle ranch, the ranch is fenced and cross fenced. The ranch is ready to operate as a turn-key cattle ranch. Spring Gulch is located in Colorado Parks and Wildlife Game Management Unit 13. GMU 13 and its surrounding GMUs contain the worlds largest Rocky Mountain Elk Herd. CPWs 2015 estimated post hunt elk population for this GMU 13 and its surrounding GMUs is 41,350 animals. Considering that the entire state of Arizona is home to a total of 35,000 and neighboring Utahs elk herd is estimated elk population is 68,000 elk, the concentration of elk located on the Spring Gulch Ranch and surrounding GMUs is almost unbelievable! The advantage of being located in such a high density of elk is that the CPW is liberal with the allocation of elk tags over the counter tags are available for Archery and 2nd & 3rd Rifle Seasons. Muzzleloader and 1st Rifle season can be drawn with zero to 2 preference points. A bonus is that GMU 13 is a B-Unit, giving hunters the availability of harvesting an additional cow elk! Owner/owners, guests, or clients will have excellent opportunities harvesting elk or simply viewing elk on Spring Gulch Ranch. Mule deer should not be over shadowed by the immense elk herd located in this area. Mule deer are rebounding and flourishing from previous hard winter kills. Predators such as Bears, Mountain Lion, Bobcats, are also flourishing on the Spring Gulch Ranch with the abundance of game located on the ranch and in the surrounding area. The Main log cabin has the comforts of home. Two levels and a basement will provide plenty of room for guests. Electric heated, wood stove, appliances, (washer / dryer/ refrigerator/ stove) supply all the amenities for comfort after enjoying all the outdoors has to offer. The lower (Homestead) cabin located on the property provide propane heat stove and wood fire place. You can work on projects or safely secure your equipment the 40 x 60 Metal Barn. Located 35 minutes from Craig, Colorado and only a little over 1 hour from Steamboat Springs with world class skiing. Two-thirds of the scenic Dinosaur National Monument is in Moffat County, with its scenic vistas that some call "the little Grand Canyon." It's a beautiful place to hike, camp, horseback ride or catch some intense rapids on the Green or Yampa River. Moffat County boasts one of the last remaining herds of wild mustangs in Sandwash Basin, which is also a popular spot for off-highway vehicle enthusiasts. Spring Gulch Ranch location will provide you seclusion yet keep you in proximity to acquiring supplies (gas, grocery, equipment, etc.), medi
