Property Description

HORSESHOE MESA RANCH 

For the size and price point, Horseshoe Mesa Ranch offers the avid outdoors enthusiast hunting opportunities like no other ranch on the market today. The ranch is ideally located in Southeast CO along the NM border to the south. The property boasts 2,440 deeded acres of prime deer, elk and bear habitat. With very limited public ground, relatively mild winters, excellent genetics, good feed and water sources, its no wonder why there are so many trophy caliber animals in the immediate area.
