Sandoval, New Mexico
36,460.00 acres
The L Bar Ranch is located west of Albuquerque near the community of Laguna, in Sandoval County, in the New Mexico Dept. of Fish and Game Unit 9.
The terrain of the L Bar Ranch varies dramatically from high mesas with steep fractured rock ledges and ridges to lower wide valley bottoms. These rugged features offer unbelievable views throughout the ranch and include numerous massive steep protruding volcanic up thrust cones or plugs, which tower over the surrounding country side. These volcanic cones have unusual and very striking features which were actually formed when molten lava exploded from deep within the earth.
Elevations on the L Bar Ranch vary over an amazing 2,000 vertical feet. Reaching 8,300 feet on the upper mesa country and descending to approximately 6,100 feet in the southeast corner of the ranch.
The L Bar Ranch is 100% deeded and is located at the end of the road, with no public roads traversing its boundaries. This ensures all the privacy and solitude one could ask for. A large state-owned wildlife area adjoins on the west; the Cibola National Forest on the north; the famous Floyd Lee Ranch adjoins on the northwest; the Zia and Laguna Reservations adjoin on the northeast and east with a large private ownership adjoining on the south. This is Big Ranch Country with properties in the area being of substantial size.
The combination of the high mesa country, steep rocky side slopes, scenic volcanic cones and the wide lower valleys truly give the ranch a western movie set appearance.

IMPROVEMENTS
The main ranch headquarters are located near the south end of the ranch in a scenic valley setting. These improvements include a 100% remodeled 3-bedroom, 1-bath adobe/stucco owners home, the main shipping pens and an attached livestock shed. These improvements are adjacent to the 57 acres of irrigated land. North of the headquarter improvements is a large metal hay/equipment barn, a metal shop building with attached apartment and a wood working shop building.
A stunning 2-story hunting lodge is located on the point of a spectacular fractured sandstone rock bluff. This impressive structure, which contains approximately 3,700 square feet, has a metal roof and is constructed of logs with native rock accents. This sturdy structure has four bathrooms and can accommodate approximately 15 guests. The lodge has unbelievable 360 panoramic views of nearly the entire property.

The owner of this ranch also has the right to develop the deep water (below 2,500 feet). This approved right allows the owner the right to drill up to 20 water wells (already surveyed and approved), equating to 20,000 acre feet of deep water in the Upper Triassic Agua Zarca Formation at a depth of approximately 2,968 feet.

HUNTING AND RECREATION

Catron, New Mexico
50,000.00 acres
50,000 total acres (25,500 deeded acres)
Trophy elk hunting, antelope, & mule deer
Likely to qualify for over 30 landowner bull elk tags annually
Two irrigation wells, three pivots, dozens of stock wells, dirt tanks, & springs
6,000 sq. ft. log lodge, new two bedroom home, two managers houses, & cattle facilities
2.5 hours from Albuquerque & 5 hours from Phoenix, AZ
Mangas Hunting Ranch New Mexico: World-class is no exaggeration when describing the exceptional trophy elk hunting on the renowned Mangas Ranch in west-central New Mexico. On the Mangas Ranch, geography, genetics, and habitat have combined to create an entire ecosystem that produces some of the largest bull elk on the planet. The Mangas Ranch is indeed a land of giants well-known for amazing numbers of trophy bulls that have free access to its approximately 50,000 acres (25,500 deeded). Simply put, the Mangas Ranch controls nearly 80 square miles of the finest trophy elk habitat anywhere.

The Mangas Ranch has been developed for years into one of Americas premier hunting destinations. A new luxury home and a 6,000-square foot log Lodge crown the many improvements on the ranch. The luxury home has two bedrooms, a spectacular great room, and high end finishes throughout. The Lodge is designed with hunting guests in mind. With six bedrooms, five and one half baths, and wraparound deck, it treats guests luxuriously. A new shop, two caretakers homes, office, corrals, barn, cattle handling facilities, and drive-in meat cooler complete the outstanding facilities on the ranch, all ready-to-roll for the next hunting season.

Straddling both sides of the Continental Divide, the Mangas Ranch ranges in elevation from 7300 to 8200 feet, which makes it ideally situated for supporting many square miles of pinion pine and alligator juniper forest, interspersed with grassy meadows and ponderosa pines. Much of the ranchs terrain is rolling, and a good network of ranch roads provides vehicular access throughout. With wildlife and livestock management in mind, dozens of water sources have been developed throughout the ranch, utilizing electric, wind and solar power.

The abundant water rights of Mangas Ranch are as valuable as gold in this part of New Mexico and have allowed the ranch to have been run as a profitable mid-sized cattle operation for years. Two irrigation wells can combine for up to 700 gallons/minute and are permitted for use of 453 acre/feet of water annually. Three pivots can be used to irrigate up to 164 acres for livestock, crop production, or wildlife. Alternatively, the rights have the potential to be transferred for pond or lake development. In any event, the presence of plentiful water on the Mangas Ranch is a huge ingredient for maintaining it as a big game mecca.

With over 30 landowner bull elk licenses likely each year in one of the worlds best trophy elk units, Mangas Ranch is a hunting ranch of legendary possibilities. Add in over-the-counter antelope and deer tags, and it is a hunting ranch that most only dream about. As a combination cattle/hunting ranch or a hunting resort alone, the potential for this spectacular piece of western New Mexico may be unmatched anywhere in the United States. With excellent year-round access, the land of giants is located only 2.5 hours from Albuquerque, 3.5 hours from Santa Fe, and 5 hours from Phoenix, Arizona.

El Capitan Trophy Elk, Land & Cattle RanchLarge contiguous land holdings comparable to the +/-24,070 acres (+/-11,070 deeded and +/-13,000 National Forest grazing 200 AUM allotment) representing the El Capitan Trophy Elk, Land & Cattle Ranch, are getting harder and harder to find, especially with the incredible artesian springs and untapped water that El Capitan Ranch carries.El Capitan Ranch is most noted as the property where Smokey Bear was found in the spring of 1950, and a documented hideout of Billy the Kid. The ranch offers world-class hunting (both high fence and free range), working cattle operations, substantial improvements and 10+miles of paved highway frontage with major investment potential. Drive time from Capitan to Ruidosos casinos, horse racing and snow skiing is 17 miles, the Texas State line is a close 2 hours 15 minutes and just 2 hours 35 minutes to Albuquerque International Airport. The ranch borders thousands of acres of the Lincoln National Forest and the 35,000 acre Capitan Wilderness and is but 14 miles from the quaint historic town of Capitan, New Mexico with excellent dining, incredible western history of Lincoln County and historic museums.HuntingIn 2019 the New Mexico Department of Fish and Game allocated this area as Management Level 2, with unlimited landowner bull elk tags, unlimited landowner mule deer tags, unlimited landowner antelope tags, and the ranch carries a large number of both Merriam and Rio Grande Turkeys as well as hybrids. In recent years, wild hogs have encroached into this area of New Mexico and allows for unlimited hunting, with black bear, bobcat, an occasional mountain lion and coyotes rounding out the predator hunting. The largest free range bull elk was a 396 taken a couple years ago with 350+ bulls documented every year on the ranch. In 2019, a 198 in mule deer was the largest taken in the area.

Fernandez L Bar Ranch
#NM545664
McKinley, New Mexico
16,410.00 acres
The Fernandez L Bar Ranch epitomizes the "Land of Enchantment" with its breathtaking vistas and unsurpassed views. With its location just 2 hours away from New Mexico's largest metro and Albuquerque International Airport, this ranch provides all the benefits of a true wilderness atmosphere within sight of Albuquerque. Additionally, the size of the Fernandez L Bar at 16,410 deeded acres makes this parcel of real estate a rarity in todays market. There are simply fewer and fewer large expanses of scenic undeveloped real estate remaining in the US.

The ranch is comprised of 16,410 deeded acres of beautiful, scenic, hunting ranch in central New Mexico. The topography and views from all parts of this ranch are stunning, which makes it one of the most scenic in the state. Views from the highest points on the ranch include Cerros de Guadalupe, Mount Taylor, Jemez Mountains, the Sandia Mountain, and on a clear day you can see the mountains in southern Colorado. Surrounding neighbors of the Fernandez L Bar Ranch land tenure include the large operation of the vast holdings of the Fernandez Company Ranch, aka Floyd Lee (South Boundary), the Crawford L Bar Ranch (East Boundary), and the Cibola National Forest (North and West Boundary). Additionally, the 14,000-acre Marquez Wildlife Area owned by the New Mexico State Game Commission adjoins the southeastern corner of the Fernandez L Bar.

The Fernandez L Bar main entrance gate is located approximately 1 hour north of I-40. The ranch has three access routes. The primary route travels north, off I-40 at the community of Laguna. This route then continues on State Road #279 to a very private road. At this point, access is via a private recorded easement through the Lower L Bar Ranch. This private access route starts at the locked Crawford L Bar gate, then proceeds along a good quality all-weather road through the Crawford Ranch to the main gate, being the east entrance to the Fernandez L Bar. A second seasonal route is via BLM Road #1104 from Cabezon and San Luis to the west entrance gate. This route is approximately 2.5 hours from Albuquerque. The third access is via San Mateo (North of Grants) to USFS road #239 to the west entrance. With easy access off I-40 and a quick drive to Albuquerque, the Fernandez L Bars location is superior over competitively sized recreational properties located in the Southwest US.

Elevations on the ranch vary from 8,000+/- feet to 9,100+/- feet on the upper elevations of Mesa Chivato. This ranch is located in a semi-arid region of New Mexico. Annual precipitation is in the range of 12 to 14 inches and the property generally receives a couple of feet of snow during the winter with snow levels increasing at the higher elevations within the Guadalupe Range on the ranch.

The ranch supports a good variety of native grasses along with desirable browse for wildlife. Vegetation ranges from oak, mountain mahogany, pion and an abundance of large ponderosa pine. A very unique feature of the Fernandez L Bar is the scattered oak mots that dot the landscape. The oak mots provide excellent habitat for cow elk calving. Grass turf consists of the highly palatable Grama varieties, Arizona Fescue, Mountain Muhley, and Wheatgrass. Livestock and wildlife thrive on the Fernandez L Bar forage.

The ranch relies on numerous earthen tanks to provide water for wildlife and livestock. There is one working well on the north end of the ranch that provides water for wildlife, livestock and the hunting cabins located on the ranch.

Historically, the ranch is operated based on summer livestock grazing in conjunction with the elk herd calling this ranch home. Both practices depend on forage quantity and rainfall amounts. Additionally, these grazing practices assure the wildlife is managed in an effective manner. The owners have a main cabin for the hunters, guides and cooks. There are also 3 smaller cabins that have room for two hunters. The well on the north end of the ranch provides water for the cabins, generators provide power for all the cabins and propane is the source for heat and hot water. The cabins are nestled in the ponderosa pines where a hunter or the ranching crew can stay and enjoy the scenery.

The wildlife features on the Fernandez L Bar Ranch are very impressive. Game species include Elk, Mule Deer, Black Bear, Mountain Lion, Bobcat, Turkey and Waterfowl. The Fernandez L Bar Ranch is located in New Mexico Big Game Unit 9. In past years, the Floyd Lee Family has combined their hunting with all the other ranch land. We have estimated the number of elk authorizations based on neighboring ranches. The ranch is estimated to receive 15 mature bull Elk muzzleloader landowner authorizations and 16 either sex Elk archery authorizations. Hunting opportunities on the Fernandez L Bar are excellent. The ranch currently provides for limited hunting to assure both health and quality of the big game roaming the Fernandez L Bar borders.

Mineral rights to be negotiated, water rights and all wind generation royalty rights will convey with the property.

Property taxes in 2020 were approximately $1,850.

The Fernandez L Bar Ranch is realistically priced at $11,487,000 or approximately $700 per acre. Where can you find a ranch with a very private wilderness atmosphere, awesome wildlife, beautiful terrain, and beautiful views, only 60 air-miles from Albuquerque? The answer is the Fernandez L Bar Ranch. This property is priced right and is ready to own, operate and enjoy for generations.

It includes a vaulted ceiling Great Room with a stone fireplace that is reminiscent of old Western lodges, a custom-built kitchen highlighted with mesquite cabinetry that leads into a breakfast room that seats 6 people. A vintage style wet bar and Victorian style gas fireplace surround a seating area and adjoins a dining room with sweeping views of the mountains and seats 12 people. There is stairway access to the basement which could serve as a wine cellar. Vaulted ceilings continue into both the Master Bedroom and Guest Bedroom with en suite features. Two, 2-car detached garages complete the Main House area.

The Main House features alone would set Red Rabbit Ranch apart, but many would consider its 4,000-square foot barn its crowning jewel, making this property one of the finest equestrian facilities in this part of the state. The barn includes a full shop, 6 horse stalls, two of which have auxiliary heating for foaling, an 1100 sq. ft. upper hay loft, washroom and a tack room with 8 saddle racks secured by antique teak and iron doors. The barn floor has brick pavers and adding to the ambiance of the barn is a custom round stained glass window. Attached to the barn is a 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom, full kitchen, open concept living area perfect for a Ranch Manager or Guests. Other improvements with the horse lover in mind include three horse pastures with electric fencing, horse corrals, loafing sheds, a hay shed and a round pen. Of course, with nearly 2000 acres to its credit, high country trail riding on the Ranch is second to none.

Guest House:
The 2,000 sq. ft. guesthouse situated overlooking the lower portion of the Ranch provides incredible sunset views from the front porch. Comprised of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, it features an open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, full kitchen, custom woodwork, and a wood burning stove, all of which make your guests feel welcome and comfortable.

The hunting cabin located amid prime elk country at 9,800 feet sleeps 7 people with a full kitchen, dining area and shower. Running hot water, wood burning stove and gas lights make it an inviting space for hunters at the end of the day.

Storage Building:
The 4000 sq. ft. metal, clear span storage facility has a concrete floor and natural lighting giving ample room for Ranch equipment and materials.

Stone House:
Built in the 1800s, the stone house was used for decades as a summer camp by sheepherders and remains virtually unchanged.

Thoughtful habitat and wildlife management ensures that the Quinlan is home to significant populations of resident elk, mule deer, black bear and turkey.

The listing price includes 100 percent of the appurtenant mineral rights*, all privately owned elk, and an extensive inventory of essential ranch equipment and rolling stock (See Quinlan Ranch Inventory).

*Seller believes, but will not warrant, that it owns 100 percent of the appurtenant subsurface mineral rights which will convey with the sale. Buyers are encouraged to retain legal counsel for the purposes of confirming mineral rights ownership.
