The Emery Gap Ranch is an exceptional Northeastern New Mexico property which has been owned and operated by the same family ownership for over 100 years. The ranch is located just south of Branson, Colorado and north of Folsom, New Mexico. The setting of this property is in one of the most beautiful areas of New Mexico and this is the first time the ranch has ever been offered for sale.
The Emery Gap Ranch is a combination recreation and livestock grazing unit. The primary recreation use is big game hunting for trophy elk, mule deer, and pronghorn antelope, along with other species that frequent the boundaries of the unit.
The ranch has a varied topography, with elevations ranging from around 6,400′ to 7,500′. The northern portions of the ranch extend up onto Brown and Davis Mesas. These large plateaus offer awesome views into the large valleys that make up much of the eastern portions of the ranch. The western and southern end of the ranch are more rugged, with a fairly dense canopy of pinon and scattered ponderosa pine. Fir trees are scattered throughout portions of the property. Large rock bluffs and outcroppings are located along Alps Mesa.
The ranch is located in New Mexico’s Unit 58, which is widely recognized for quality elk and mule deer production. The ranch is currently enrolled in the New Mexico Game and Fish E-Plus and A-Plus Landowner Systems. The ranch is expected to receive up to 15 either sex authorizations along with 28 cow elk landowner authorizations in 2016 via E-Plus. The ranch also receives 3 mature buck antelope landowner authorizations via A-Plus. Authorizations are synonymous with the term landowner tag which allows a hunter to buy a hunting license from the department. Trophy bull elk and mule deer are prevalent on this ranch. A conservative hunting program is in place to assure quality animals are harvested and to assure the long term sustainability of the wildlife on the ranch.
Recently, the water infrastructure was upgraded through the EQIP. Several new solar water wells were drilled and several miles of pipelines were run to numerous new fiberglass drinking troughs with covered floats and new water storage reservoirs. The installations were so well done that we wanted to share photos of them. For more information on the Emery Gap Ranch, or other New Mexico ranches for sale, feel free to contact us.
