Description

Record Class Bull Elk, Bass, Bucks, Bluegills, Pronghorns, Black Angus & Blue Cats! When one pulls just a quarter-mile off the Highway into Catron Countys +/-18,800acre Rito Springs Ranch, a transformation takes place. Catron County, Southwest New Mexico, is ground zero for producing some of the biggest Rocky Mountain Bull Elk in the country and is home to New Mexicos Big Game Unit 12, the unit that holds the current state record bull elk, a 420+ monster. In the very heart of Catron County and BGU Unit 12 is the incomparable Catron Countys Rito Springs Ranch, totaling +/-9579 deeded acres, including senior water rights irrigating +/-200 acres! Toss in for good measure an additional +/-9,221 acres of State and BLM grazing lease, and your total ranch is +/-18,800 acres! Priced at an incredible value of $887 per deeded acre! The ranch is easily accessible from US Highway 60, about half way between the incredible Pie Shop of Pietown and the home-cooking cafe in Quemado, New Mexico. With approximately 7-miles of highway frontage, the holding is remarkably private. From the highway, one never realizes the beautiful oasis that exists just inside the fence provided by the canyons, springs, lake and creek. Phoenix is 4 hours & 30 minutes, Albuquerque International airport is 2 hours & 30 minutes, the closest jet-capable airport is Springerville, Arizona at 55-minutes and Socorro, NM is 90 minutes. Holdings such as Catron Countys Rito Springs Ranch have been in the same family for close 100 years. Its time to pass the baton to the next "keeper of the land! While the ranch has been a historic cattle producer for close to a century, the full recreational aspect of such a property is yet to be tapped. While producing world-class bull elk, book-class antelope and some exceptional mule deer, the ranch is one of the nations best candidates with very little actual adjustment from a cattle centric property to game centric, that would result as one of the nations premier hunting & recreational ranches in existence today. Ranch & Improvements +/-9579 deeded acres +/-1,180 acres BLM Grazing Lease (can be sublet) +/-8041 acres State Grazing Lease (can be sublet) + - 18,800 acres (Note: +/-2800 acres of deeded rangeland is enrolled in a conservation Easement, allowing for ranching, hunting, & recreation, but prohibiting commercial or subdivision.) Water Its been said that water is the gold these days and if so, then Catron Countys Rito Springs Ranch is Ft Knox! The +/-15-acre spring fed Rito Springs Reservoir, at the head of one of the many canyons that cross the ranch, is stocked with largemouth bass, bluegill, yellow perch and beautiful blue cats. The breathtaking water fall feeds into the irrigation system that floods over 200-acres of river bottom. When the wheat is in, one has to push an elk out to get an antelope or mule deer in! This ranch has consistently produced a grazing & hunting income in the $200,000 a year, not including gravel or water sales. In addition to the springs, there are 10 excellent producing wells on the ranch, feeding water lines and drinkers. Water quality is considered good. Houses and Other Buildings Residential improvements are modest with no improvement value in the pricing. At headquarters, there is a 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath home that the owner stays in when at the ranch working and some hunters have leased. Also at headquarters is a large steel shop/feed barn and a metal two-car garage. At the Palmer Place, there is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home that the hired caretaker lives in and a shop building constructed of metal and shipping containers. On your showing, please ask your broker to show you a couple of the ideal locations for your dream home, with water and power nearby. There is a private cemetery located near headquarters. The owner is the only one with right to access the cemetery, and does not intend to keep a right to access the cemeter
