Property Description

Welcome to an extraordinary hunting ranch opportunity just outside of Durango, Colorado.  Blue Hill Ranch is a captivating hunting property that boasts unparalleled natural beauty and holds a tremendous potential for development and subdivision. This expansive property offers a unique blend of untamed wilderness and the promise of future possibilities as a legacy ranch; with Mule Deer, Elk, Bear and Turkey hunting, multiple stock ponds, a newer solar well, and water rights.  Blue Hill Ranch qualifies for 2 Colorado Landowner Preference Program (LPP) Mule Deer Vouchers (*contact agent for more info) and has Over-The-Counter (OTC) Elk tags.  Located in GMU 741, this 1,003+/- acre property has awe-inspiring 360-degree mountain views, including a trail system that navigates the property's varying terrain. The property combines gentle hills and rolling pastures with Scrub Oak, Junipers, and Sage.  Bordered by private holdings and Ute land, there is little competition from other hunters which provides a better chance of bagging a trophy bull or buck and enjoying the hunting experience. 

Blue Hill Ranch is more than a piece of high quality hunting land; it's an investment in the future. Given the scarcity of well-located properties suitable for development, this ranch represents an exceptional opportunity for investors seeking to capitalize on the growing demand for unique mountain living experiences and stands as an exemplary candidate for a conservation easement.
