The ranch/allotment is fenced into six main pastures. Interior and exterior fencing is comprised generally of four and five strand barbed wire. Wire gates or cattle guards and two track roads provide access to all major pastures on the ranch. Fencing is functional and is considered to be in good to fair condition.

The water system is supplied by a newly drilled well thatproduced 60 GPM upon testing. This well provides water to 4 main pastures. Springs supplement the pipeline water system and earth stock tanks are scattered within pastures as an additional water source for livestock.

Their snowcapped peaks are spectacular in winter months. To the south lie the desert mountain ranges of the Fra Cristobal and the rugged Caballos both near Truth or Consequences.







The ranch is located in the heart of New Mexico’s famous Unit 17. Year in and year out, this area produces tremendous bull elk and is considered to be one of the top trophy producing units for bull elk in the state. Free range bulls harvested in this unit have exceeded the magical 400 Boone and Crockett point mark making this unit a very highly sought after destination for elk hunters worldwide.

Other game calling the ranch home are bear, lion, bobcat, fox, coyote, and numerous small game species and birds.
