Now’s your chance to own a property you, your family and friends can all get an elk license to hunt on. This property is located within Game Management Unit 9, which is known for its elk hunting and is eligible to participate in New Mexico Game and Fish’s elk landowner system (EPLUS). The property is in a “Secondary Management Zone.” The Secondary Management Zone is that area within the state where no specific elk management goals are set, and licenses are available over the counter to hunters who possess a Ranch Code from a landowner who is registered with the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish. Elk, mule deer, small game and upland game utilize this property. Private land mule deer licenses are currently unlimited and sold over the counter so a landowner can regulate the number of hunters to meet their management objectives. Scaled quail are prevalent on the property. The ranch provides good forage, well water and dirt tank water availability for maintaining elk and mule deer use on the property. The terrain consists of a gentle topography with open meadows of native grasses, small rimrock draws pinyon and juniper trees.
This land has been in the same family for many years and has been used primarily as a cattle ranch with hunting only by family members. The property is surrounded by the largest landowner in the unit, which enhances its seclusion and protection from the rest of the world. Large groups of elk are regularly seen utilizing this property. This property has much potential to be even a greater asset by adding a few habitat enhancement projects in key areas to maximize the elk use on the property.
The perimeter of the property is fenced with barbed wire and net wire fencing with one entrance gate. Road access is off Highway 509.
Native Americans historically frequented this area and relics from their existence can be found on the property. Pottery shards, arrowheads and a historic sweat lodge-type structure occur on the property.
