Property Description

Horse Monument is a picturesque 486+/- acres of organic farm fields and canyons with several mountain ranges in the background.  The mix of excellent Big Game habitat, including agricultural fields and bedding cover, provides a quality environment for trophy Mule Deer bucks.  The diverse landscape of canyons, Sagebrush and trees are an asset for additional wildlife as well.  Horse Monument is currently enrolled in the area Cooperative Wildlife Management Unit (CWMU) for its trophy Mule Deer, and receives annual income (with the potential to receive CWMU Mule Deer vouchers, or landowner tags).  Elk tags are Over-The-Counter (OTC), and Black Bear tags are some of the most sought after in the state (due to the big bears and great hunting).  The reddish colored organic farm fields are currently leased by an area farmer who grows Winter Wheat and Safflower.  Access to the property is year-round from a paved road.  Additional local features are the 2+ million acres of public land close by, and the nearby lakes for the fishing enthusiast.  The town of Monticello is roughly 25 minutes away, and provides groceries and supplies, as well as hotels, hospitals, and an airport.
