Property Description

Nestled in the heart of Northwest Colorado, Hogback Draw is a 173± acre Elk and Mule Deer hunting property in Meeker, Colorado that has operated as a successful outfitting ranch. The property’s diverse terrain includes Oak Brush ridges, Cedar pockets, lush valley floors, and mountain sides of the Grand Hogback. The property has been managed for wildlife production (e.g. 40+ acres of Alfalfa, and strategically placed water tanks) and creates optimal habitat for Elk and Mule Deer. Hogback Draw borders over 1,900± acres of BLM property that is accessible through private ATV trails, horseback, and by foot, which allows the opportunities for hunting to expand well beyond the property lines. The property is in GMU 23 (famed White River valley) and is renowned for its Big Game, hosting the largest Elk and Mule Deer herds in the state, along with Antelope and a dense Black Bear population. With Over-The-Counter Private Land Only Elk licenses, low preference points for Mule Deer tags, and eligibility for Landowner Licenses, this property ensures hunting opportunities every year for multiple seasons.
