Bear Gulch Reserve
Bear Gulch Reserve is a rare find just an hour and a half from Fort Collins but gives you the feeling that you are a thousand miles away from anyone. This beautiful property encompasses 240 acres and is bordered by the Roosevelt National Forest on three sides. The land itself is located at the end of a dirt road and is covered in beautiful spruce and pine trees. This land also boasts numerous natural springs that help keep the trophy Elk, Mule Deer and Black Bear on the property. Sitting at 9,400 feet, Bear Gulch Reserve provides almost endless views over the foothills and snowcapped peaks beyond. This is also just the right elevation to keep big game in the area through most of the summer and hunting seasons. Located in Game Management Unit 8, this is a limited draw unit for Elk, Deer, and Bear. Not only does this land qualify for the landowner voucher program, but the owners have historically been able to draw the tags they wanted through the public limited draw process. Just in case those tags weren't enough, the next owner would also have the perfect spot to hunt with a private land only cow elk tag that is valid from September 1st to January 31st! This area is also well known for the vast opportunities to hike, camp, snowmobile, 4-wheel, and fish on the thousands of acres in the neighboring national forest and wildlife areas.
In addition to all the beauty and privacy these 240 acres provide, there is a sturdy shipping container that has been retrofitted to act as a mountain cabin with two beds, a table, a wood fireplace, and sliding glass door to enjoy the peaceful nights in. Perhaps even more inviting is the deck and fire pit area to admire the views and breathe the fresh mountain air. This property is also located behind a locked gate and has good dirt road access all the way to the cabin. The combination of the varying topography and vegetation makes these 240 acres hunt big and hold game that comes from the surrounding national forest. This ranch is unencumbered by covenants, by-laws, or conservation easements, leaving the next owners free to live as they please.
Finally, there is a radio relay tower on 2 acres of the Southwest corner of the property that, not only brings electrical power on to the property, also provided the owner with over $4,700 in income annually.
With all the attributes this property has to offer, it won't last long in today's market. Call Mike Callan today for your own personal showing.
