Description: This destination is one of the finest hunting destinations in the West. The ranch sits astride the historic migration route of the entire Southern Colorado-San Juan elk herd, making this perhaps the most extraordinary elk habitat in the Southwest.
Comprised of 17,000 acres, the property is a rich alpine wilderness at the intersection of multiple ecosystems. Mountains, forests, meadows, lakes and streams attract a remarkable diversity of animals.
Hunters will have the opportunity to hunt for true trophy mule deer with an average score of 175 and with the largest bucks taken approaching 220.
Accommodations: The ranch and hunting lodge is located just two hours north of Santa Fe, NM, in the legendary San Juan Mountains of northern New Mexico, just west of Chama on Highway 64.
Situated on a hillside overlooking the Chama Valley, the lodge offers convenience, comfort, great food, and spectacular views. The grand room is elegantly comfortable, encircled by picture windows with spectacular views and furnished with large leather chairs and sofas perfect for relaxing after a long day out on the Ranch. The river rock fireplace turns the room into a warm refuge on our cool Rocky Mountain nights. The gaming table and large screen satellite television round out one of the most social areas of the cabin. Wireless internet service is available throughout the Lodge, and the cell reception is typically excellent.
There are eleven very comfortably furnished bedrooms. Each has two full sized beds with pillowtop mattresses, a leather couch or chair and plenty of space for gear. Nine bedrooms have a private bathroom, two bedrooms share a common bath.
Accommodations at the ranch are spacious and clean, and the vistas are truly outstanding. We provide all the comfort and convenience you would expect from a classic Western ranch.
