San Miguel RangeWith Utah quality bull and buck tags taking up to 20+ years to draw, and some units in Colorado approaching up 18 years, perhaps its time to put your hunting dollars to work instead of vice versa!!!Located on the border of Dolores County and San Miguel County in Southwest Colorado, just moments from the Utah state line, the San Miguel Range (+/- 603 acres) is the duel purpose working farm production ground and consummate elk and mule deer habitat that you’ve been looking for. Have you ever considered investing in your own income producing farm ground and calling your big game tags your dividend each year? Not much different than the dual purpose ground that Midwest whitetail hunters have been investing in and watching escalate in value for years. The Dove Creek area of Southwest Colorado is a checkerboard of large agriculture areas producing wheat, dry beans, alfalfa, oats, mixed with pinion/juniper, Ponderosas, gamble oaks, mountain mahogany and sage thus producing world-class elk and record-book mule deer. With ever escalating preference points required to draw quality unit mule deer tags, a significant amount of discriminating hunters are investing to own their own private farms with over-the-counter elk tags and private landowner buck tags. The property has an early 19th century abandoned homestead with some gorgeous seasoned timber and power making for an excellent cabin, motorhome or travel trailer location.The retiring farming family, who has owned it for many years, verifies excellent game habitat, both resident and especially migratory populations. A large population of the Southwest elk population migrate through this property and elk have been documented on the Range up to 350+ bucks in excess of 200. For bow hunters, elk and mule deer both enjoy the year-round spring fed waterhole, and monsoon dirt tanks compliment the agricultural ground on the Range. Numerous pockets are ideal for additional food plots.Hunting rights are available for 2019. This property also qualifies for National Conservation Resource Service grants and CRP enrollment, should one wish to apply. Absentee ownership is very favorable with local farmers available to lease the farm rights and caretake the property, keeping an eye on your investment. The San Miguel Range has great access to Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, and the nearby city of Cortez (35 minutes) provides for commercial air access. Moab, Utah and Mesa Verde National Park are nearby and world class skiing is available in Telluride. Millions of acres of the San Juan National forest are moments away with the Dolores River and McPhee Reservoir providing for some great fishing.Less than a mile away, the Dolores County Line 270 Ranch would make an excellent alternative or addition to the San Miguel Range. Pricing is negotiable if both parcels are sold together.With farm ground prices escalating and hunting tags getting harder and harder to acquire, it’s time for you to look for an alternative.Call Greg Liddle today for more information and a qualified showing.
