Property Description

Burro Creek Mesa consists of 160 acres of prime big game hunting in one of the most sought-after game management units in all of Colorado, GMU 61! Located near the town of Nucla, CO, this secluded ranch is completely surrounded by BLM which then gives way to thousands of acres of national forest up above on the Uncompahgre Plateau. With recently updated off-grid cabins and outbuildings, all you need to do is show up and enjoy the wildlife and mountains views! See below for further details on landowner vouchers, water rights, and ranch attributes. 

You'll be hard-pressed to find a better GMU that offers trophy hunting for both elk and mule deer and is still relatively easy for landowners who qualify for the Land Owner Preference Program to obtain landowner vouchers. The state manages this unit as a high-quality hunt putting more emphasis on the experience vs. opportunity. As a result of these strict management practices licenses are extremely difficult for the public to obtain. As an example, it takes a resident 14 years to guarantee a unit-wide archery tag and a non-resident 21 years! As a landowner enrolled in the LPP you can draw any elk tag available with 0-2 preference pts. For instance, a landowner with one preference point has 69% odds of drawing a unit-wide archery elk tag. Some of the rifle seasons are even easier to draw a landowner voucher! Deer draw odds are pretty similar with most seasons taking landowners 1-2 pts to draw. Call us or shoot us an email if like a full breakdown on the landowner elk and deer draw odds.


RANCH ATTRIBUTES

  • Recently updated 2 bedroom cabin, bunkhouse, and numerous outbuildings. Only one residential structure is believed to be permitted. 
  • Water Rights consisting of 2 C.F.S. of water for stock-water, domestic use in one dwelling and irrigation of 100 acres. 
  • Additional sources of water include a spring below the cabin.
  • Perimeter fencing with cross fencing.
  • Property is not burdened with any conservation easements leaving a new owner the opportunity to explore this option for themselves! 
  • Access could be year-round on an average to moderate snowfall year. 
  • With the vast majority of GMU 61 being comprised of public lands, ranches like this don't come to the market very often. With the added benefit of adjoining difficult to reach public lands and the ability to create your own irrigated oasis, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better deal for this price point in this GMU.
