Bartlett Mesa Ranch

Posted on: May 5th, 2020 by

Bartlett Mesa Ranch, Colfax County, GMU 57
This 2,224 acres is a stunningly beautiful cattle ranch atop a high mesa with watered, open terrain that attracts big game. Boasting a very convenient location with easy access, this very private property is a perfect combination of serious ranching and exceptional hunting.

World Class Mule Deer and Trophy Elk love this ranch, but the seller only lets their trusted outfitter take between 3-5 Buck and 2-4 Bull Elk each year. The game unit has Unlimited Landowner Elk Tags and Over-the-Counter Deer Tags so broader hunting could definitely be developed. Huntable populations of Bear, Mountain Lion, and Turkey also call the ranch home!

Sitting moments from I25 and the city limits of Raton, the ranch has been in the same family for many years. The excellent grasses can carry 400 yearlings or 150 pair from May to October. Three wells anchor a water system complimented by Soda Pocket Creek on the north and numerous stock tanks scattered across the mesa. Good cross fences separate 6 different pastures and there is an ownership interest in a handling facility located down the ranch’s approach road.

The eastern edge of the property looks down on Sugarite Canyon State Park and its picturesque lakes. The view from the southern edge frames the city of Raton below you with twinkling night lights. Most remarkable, the northern boundary is basically Colorado and the famous Crazy French Ranch – 19,000 acres of which was just acquired for the state for $25 million! The Crazy French is long known to be a sportsman’s paradise, and the Nature Conservancy and the Trust for Public Lands made quite the deal adding this coveted resource to public lands. The State of New Mexico is said to have its eye on Bartlett Mesa, and based on conservation organization’s interest in the area, a purchaser could likely place a functional conservation easement on this land – if they were so inclined and were looking for tax advantages.

Gentle elevation changes run from 7900′ to 8400′. Property taxes are $105 a year. 50% of seller’s mineral interest will convey.

Raton is 175 miles from Santa Fe and 150 miles to Colorado Springs. Trinidad, Colorado is just 20 minutes up Interstate 25.

Canadian River Canyon Ranch

Posted on: February 5th, 2019 by

Dramatic Canadian River Ranch with good access and good roads. This is Big Country with spectacular canyon and mountain views from high grasslands. Over 2 miles of deeded river frontage. The northern piece is 1642 acres +/-. The southern piece is 1667 acres +/-. Located only 12 miles from the friendly community of Roy. 581 ACRES WAS ADDED TO THIS OFFERING ON THE SOUTHERN END! PRICE WAS INCREASED PROPORTIONATELY AT $500 PER ACRE.

The country works like an inverted mountain. Grassland mesas give way to ponderosa pine-dotted ridgelines and huge, amazing views. Then there is transition from scrub-oak, pinon/juniper down 600 feet into bottom lands with riparian habitat where cottonwoods and willows grow. ABUNDANT Wildlife including elk, mule deer, turkey, bear, mountain lion, and bobcat. UNLIMITED Land Owner NO DRAW ELK PERMITS in a hunting unit with no public elk hunting!

Broken out of the 14,000 acre Maddox Ranch in 2007, this ranch is currently being improved with new fences and grazing leases have been signed. Investment in the test well located in the center of this property is probably the next good idea. Currently livestock is watered from multiple stock ponds and the river.

A paradise for the explorer, there are numerous stacked stone ruins and long abandoned homesteads. Old cemeteries are scattered in the area, and the southern ranch is near the historic village of Armenta Plaza. State land parcels also adjoin, as well as some BLM.

There are many choice building sites, and electricity comes off the rim down to a cul-de-sac in the center of the property.

Located between Wagon Mound & Roy, Santa Fe is 145 miles away. “The Canadian Gorge is, simply, the biggest & deepest canyon on the American Great Plains” Dan Flores, Caprock Canyon Lands/UT Press. You will not find another sprawling canyon ranch with river frontage and an abundance of wildlife for this price!
