Property Description

For the size and price point, McBride Butte 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, it's no wonder why there are so many trophy caliber animals in the immediate area. Just look at the trail camera pictures!


HUNTING

McBride Butte 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). Don't discount the black bear hunting....there are some monster bears that come in to feed on the acorns!


THE RANCH

The ranch consists of 2,440 acres of mountainous land that spans from the valley floor and climbs to the top of Horseshoe Mesa. Elevations range from 6,100 - 8,700 feet. Additionally, there is a 312-acre state grazing and recreational lease that will transfer at closing giving the new owner 2,752 acres of land to explore and utilize for summer pasture. The ranch has several sources of water including seasonal creeks, multiple springs, and numerous small ponds. There is decent fencing along the perimeter.

Potential to add 7,700 acres to the west. Please call to inquire. 

A small, remodeled, stone-built cabin acts as the perfect hunter's cabin easily accessible from the northeast entrance to the property.

LOCALE

The property is surrounded by large ranches, new roads, and fencing and is in close proximity to several small and large cities in all directions. The closest city is Trinidad, Colorado, population of 8000, and is located roughly 40 minutes to the northwest. Trinidad has all the conveniences one would expect in a small city: shopping, restaurants, hotels, and even a small private airport. Raton, New Mexico, similar in size, also sits within that 40-minute radius southwest, and a little further out southeast is the quaint town of Dalhart, Texas.

Other surrounding outdoor and recreational activities include Trinidad Lake State Park, within an hour drive, which houses an 800-acre reservoir just southeast of Trinidad, that sports fishing, hunting, camping, boating, and hiking.
