    Description

    Muerto Creek Trophy Elk and Cattle Ranch +/- 2172 deeded acres, Ramah NM The Property & Game This +/- 2172 deeded acres, framing both sides of the cottonwood lined Muerto Creek, borders thousands of acres of the Cibola National Forest Oso Ridge district and is just being released to market. The current owner has manicured and improved the property for trophy elk (6-7 tags per year) and trophy class mule deer (unlimited mule deer and antelope tags) with all 2020 hunting rights and tags being conveyed to buyer. Merriam's turkeys abound and black bear (all color phases) are abundant as well. Muerto Creek Trophy Elk and Cattle Ranch was acquired by the current owner (a PhD of Engineering) after a multi-year search, checking several of his boxes (private end of the road access, excellent blend of timber and meadows, extremely well-watered with secluded headquarters), but mainly beautiful property that allowed for undisturbed management of the game while producing 350 class elk and mule deer approaching the 200 mark. A bonus was also being able to run a few head of cattle. Over the years he strategically added a couple of neighboring parcels including an +/- 850-acre conservation easement pasture that bordered the ranch, adding another mile+ of privacy buffer and where the cattle pasture and antelope play. Located +/- 5 miles north of Hwy. 53, near Ramah, New Mexico, this end of the road Unit 10 BGU property offers a mile of secluded buffer one drives through to get to the ranch and thousands of acres (miles and miles) of the Cibola National Forest all the way to Oso Ridge to the north. This location provides for ultimate privacy and protection, while channeling an abundance of elk & mule deer into the property. Four (4) wells and several year round springs in Muerto Creek arroyo provide water for the ranch, keeping the deer and elk on the property. The heavily timbered ponderosa and oak timbered north side opens up and drops down into Pinon Juniper and Cottonwoods, then breaks into open meadow, where the antelope play and the current owner runs +/ - 20 head of cattle. End of the road, with year round access and substantial water and food plot locations make this one hard to compare to. Fencing and cross fencing allows for cattle rotation and selected sanctuarys for elk and deer habitat. The Valley The El Morro Valley was first founded by the Spanish Explorers, however, they were not the first recorded residents. El Morro Inscription Rock National Monument has Anasazi pictographs, then came the Spanish Explorers and even Kit Carsons name is inscribed into the rocks Of course the mild four-season climate, abundant game and water attracted the original habitants, even leaving two large kivas on the Muerto Creek Ranch. Many arrowheads and artifacts have been found along the creek that intersects the ranch. Google says its 49 minutes to Gallup and 60 minutes to Grants, NM, both of which have G-5 capable airports. And, its only 2 hours to Albuquerque, 5 hours to Phoenix and 5.5 hours to Tucson, AZ. This little known and sparsely populated valley has been very well preserved. Improvements & Headquarters The property hosts a +/-2800 sq. ft. Santa Fe Style home with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, a large great room, a 2-car garage with equipment shed, a garden, an excellent well, electric, phone and propane. An elk & deer drinker has been installed not 50 yds. from the porch, so be it bugle season or just a normal day, one can watch the undisturbed elk, mule deer, turkey and even an occasional bear, right off the porch. This property is turnkey and being conveyed fully furnished. The hidden headquarters is tucked back into the timber in a meadow where the world can never see it.
