Property Description


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. Just look at the trail camera pictures!


Horseshoe Mesa Ranch offers excellent hunting opportunities for deer, elk, turkey and bear from the beginning of archery season all the way through the last rifle season. There is a great mix of cover, meadows, topography and water sources which makes this property the perfect sanctuary for wildlife. Located in Game Management Unit 140 which is renowned for big elk and mule deer, the ranch qualifies for the LPP (landowner preference program) for mule deer vouchers and has several OTC (Over-The-Counter) options for elk licenses too (call us for further details). Dont discount the black bear hunting.there are some monster bears that come in to feed on the acorns!
