The Double H is a classic Wyoming working mountain ranch that lies along the west slope of the Bighorn Mountains running 300 plus cows along with replacement heifers and bulls. This is a historic range livestock operation that chooses to purchase rather than raise hay. It runs on over 13,000 acres of which 4,706+/- is deeded. The headquarters are tucked into an intimate valley with meadows lying along Crooked Creek from which it has an early 1885 water right. The ranch has a natural transition from lower 4,800 feet pastoral country through a series of scenic canyons that give way to the open grasslands that lie between and at the head of these valleys as they open up while gaining elevation to 7,000 feet. The uppermost pastures rise toward the top of the mountains. The comfortable improvements include an 1890s dovetailed log ranch home and log bunkhouse along with the recently refurbished historic barn, a new garage/shop combination and new horse shed that are well-kept showing real pride of ownership. Wildlife is prolific and prospers in this broken country with lots of wildlife habitat and protection. Elk and deer hunting is exceptional along the Bighorns.
