$45,000,000  •  45,039 acres
Spreading over 45,000 contiguous acres in Southeast Colorado rests the Cimarron Valley Ranch, located between Elkhart, Kansas and Keyes, Oklahoma.  Over 70 square miles of cattle ranch includes approximately 22 miles of the historic Cimarron River running from Oklahoma into Colorado, coming within two miles of bridging the Comanche National Grasslands to the Cimarron National Grasslands in Kansas.  These two national grasslands, along with state land in Oklahoma, connects this ranch to almost a million acres of public land. The Cimarron Valley Ranch truly offers incredible diversity in regard to terrain, wildlife, livestock grazing, income opportunities and more. Overview: This is an extremely rare opportunity to own a ranch that currently supports 1,600 mother cows while managing some of the best hunting in the country.  The river bottom on this ranch averages just under a mile wide for the entire length of the ranch (22 miles) providing excellent soils, water, rotational grazing, excellent habitat and grass.  This mega-ranch is very diverse with wild game and is inhabited by Mule Deer, Rocky Mountain Elk, White-tailed Deer, Rio Grande Turkeys, Bobwhite Quail, and Blue Quail.  It is not unlikely to hunt bugling elk with over-the-counter licenses the same day as working dogs on large coveys of bobwhite and blue quail.  Cattle Operation: Currently the ranch has over 1,600 mother cows and there is abundant grass and excellent water. The cattle operation is under excellent management and the program is about stewardship and balance between the improvement of wildlife habitat and the management and improvement of cattle grazing resources. The ranch is very well-watered, and the fences and working facilities are in good condition. The river bottom and the diversity of the landscape allow for rotational grazing at its finest.  With an excellent mix of grasses during all seasons and access to running calves on wheat pasture and triticale, this operation will put excellent pounds of gain on cattle.  The turn-key headquarters has good holding corrals, ranch manager facilities, barns, sheds and cattle working facilities. Water: The ranch is rich in water and provides sustainability for game and livestock alike. Currently 10 pivots are in place with quality water supply, and 10 additional pivots are approved with permits for doubling the tillable crop ground to increase the carrying capacity to 2,000 head. Over 40 stock tanks are littered throughout the ranch and The Cimarron River runs underground through most of the property, with watering holes and ponds littered along the river bottom. Game Management: With over 18 square miles of tree covered river bottom, wildlife has year around protection, excellent nesting cover, ample water and plenty of room for habitual movement. The well-managed property has over 780 acres of food plots in the river bottom with 14 high quality shooting houses.  The plots are planted with wheat, triticale, milo, sorghum and some turnips.  This acreage is accretion ground and has excellent soils that make up almost 10,000 acres of very fertile grass and cropland in just the river bottom.  Big Game Hunting: This area is famous for excellent quality animals with respect to mule deer and white-tailed deer, but also offers a resident herd of elk year around! It is expected that the next state record white-tail may come from this area or the Arkansas River drainage to the north. It is not uncommon to have free range white-tails over 175 inches and much larger.  The ranch has world class animals with many mule deer over 180 inches and an elk herd that is improving each year with great crop and habitat practices.  The ranch receives a good number of deer tags as vouchers in Colorado and Oklahoma allows for two buck licenses.  Elk tags for bull elk are over the counter and the season runs from September to January with any legal method of take.  In Colorado, the elk licenses are classified as “C Tag”, which means you can harvest a bull and buy another tag! This works very well for game managers as this tool helps on taking inferior animals out of the herd.  Elk quality in this area varies, but with such a large tract, some management can improve quality.  There have been bulls killed on the ranch up to 370 inches. In a nutshell, this property holds excellent numbers of fine animals and the game laws in Colorado and Oklahoma for this area lend well for the serious hunters.  Quail: The quail populations on the ranch are World Class.  Blue Quail or Scaled Quail inhabit the hillsides on the upper sides of the river bottom and present excellent sporting opportunities for wing shooting.  Bobwhite Quail are prolific along the river bottom and are currently in record numbers on the ranch.  It is not uncommon to bust 20 plus coveys of 25-35 birds per day on the ranch.  The mixed bag of Bobs and Blues and two states to hunt make the opportunity even better.  Pheasants: There are pheasants finding the great habitat planted along the river.  A great spring will offer excellent hatches next fall! There are over 600,000 acres of public land adjacent to this ranch with excellent wildlife populations. Believe me when you plant food and provide water they show up!  Waterfowl: Waterfowl hunting on the ranch is undeveloped, but the land is located in a good area for traffic of waterfowl.  Improvement of sloughs and some ponds could greatly enhance the waterfowl hunting.  The Lesser Prairie Chicken: The Lesser Prairie Chicken can be found on the southern portion of the ranch. This area of Colorado, Oklahoma and adjoining Kansas Cimarron National Grassland hold and grow a good number of Lesser Prairie Chicken.  This area is considered one of the premier spots to observe the birds. The lesser prairie chicken is listed on the endangered species list so hunting is not allowed. Locally, the Lesser Prairie Chicken primarily inhabits sand-sage prairie south of the Cimarron River, a strip about two to five miles wide. The Lesser Prairie Chicken is similar in appearance to the Greater Prairie Chicken, although it is slightly smaller and its air sacs on its neck are red-orange in color, whereas the greater has yellow-orange air sacs. Lesser Prairie Chickens are dependent upon rangeland conditions. Sand-sage prairie, with its mixture of short and mid-grasses, sagebrush, and yucca components, provides the birds with nesting and brood rearing cover, and food. The Lodge: There is a 7,000 square foot lodge, which was built in 2005 and has 7 bedrooms and 7 baths and is in first class condition.  The lodge offers a commercial kitchen and excellent open floor plan with high ceilings and an indoor wood burning fireplace.  There is an exciting trap range just out the back door for owners’ enjoyment.  The main lodge sits overlooking the Cimarron River and some low water ponds in the river bottom.  Privacy is at its best on the Cimarron Valley Ranch offering good access with only one road in and one road out.   Cimarron National Grassland: The Cimarron National Grassland, located just 2.5 miles east on the river, is one of twenty National Grasslands administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service. Located within Morton and Stevens Counties in southwestern Kansas, the Cimarron National Grassland contains 108,175 acres. Comanche National Grassland: The Comanche National Grassland includes over 440, 000 acres in southeastern Colorado. On the Comanche National Grassland, you can explore southeastern Colorado’s rich history. The Grassland has many stories to tell, from dinosaurs roaming the shoreline of a vast lake 150 million years ago, to Mexican and American traders traveling the Santa Fe Trail 150 years ago. The Santa Fe Trail: The Santa Fe Trail goes through immediate area and across the ranch.  This rich historic trail offers many tails of long ago.  It truly signifies that the West is and was a great place!  This ranch, with its ability to connect two large national grasslands, is very rare.  We may never see another time to accomplish such an important task. Ranch Landscape: Rock cliffs, cottonwood groves, grassy fields, yucca and sage brush are scattered throughout the land. Elevation ranges from 3,150 to 3,540 feet. Seasonal variety is provided by native grasses and riparian vegetation along the Cimarron River. The geology of the area includes sandstone, shale, limestone, sand and gravel. Area Climate: The climate here is characterized by mild winters, hot dry summers and cool evenings. Spring and Fall seasons have moderate temperatures accompanied by an occasional windy day. Precipitation, usually less than 19 inches per year, is concentrated from April to September. Snowfall is minimal and short-lived.  This ranch has such diversity it is hard to explain. Twenty-two miles of highly productive river bottom within 2.5 miles of connecting the Cimarron National Grassland with the Comanche National Grassland is truly amazing. Grazing, hunting, history, improvements, irrigation, cattle and wildlife!  The production potential and sheer vast amounts of highly productive land on this operation make it a very rare offering.  Please give us a call for a private showing of this fine ranch.

$14,495,000  •  6,713 acres
BIGHORN MOUNTAIN RANCH The Bighorn Mountain Ranch is an excellent piece of high country heaven with excellent views, wildlife and privacy.  This 6,713 +/- acre mountain ranch consists of excellent cabins and lodges, rolling grass-covered hills and meadows that are cut by deep tree-covered canyons and game filled bluffs.  The vast ranch is completely surrounded by BLM and National Forest lands of Bighorn Mountain Range, which typically gives public access into sensitive areas of ranches.  However, this is not the case on this offering.  In fact, the deeded land protects and controls most access to all of approximately 30,000 acres.  With control of so many acres, this ranch definitely lives BIG!  Started by the Flitner family in 1906 on a homestead known as Cow Camp, the Bighorn Mountain Ranch has grown over the last 100 years, adding surrounding acreage and encompassing over 20 square miles. Decades full of cattle drives, wildlife management efforts, new construction, recreational memories and hundreds of untold stories lie within the boundaries of this ranch. Now, for the first time, this legacy property is on the market. This ranch location, just 80 miles from Sheridan and 80 miles from Cody, gives the property access to the outside world.  Locally, the town of Greybull offers all services and a good 7,000 foot runway at the local airport.  For the air enthusiast and possibly the pilot, the current owner has installed two heated helicopter pads for year around access at the ranch, which is just a short 10-minute flight via helicopter from Greybull.  Shell, Wyoming is just below the ranch, and it offers some services and basic provisions as well. Known for the abundance of fossil shells located in the area, nearby exposed formations such as the Cloverly Formation and the Morrison Formation have yielded numerous fossils of dinosaurs and other animals. LAND AND CATTLE The terrain is what makes Bighorn Mountain Ranch so special.  Rolling hillsides covered with excellent grass for both stock and wildlife make the bedding areas in the canyons and the trees even better.  The owners are some of the best land stewards, and their efforts and management of this land has established grazing capacity for livestock and elk to an all time high.  It is estimated that around 3,500 elk travel this region, and between 1,500 and 2,000 elk use the ranch and its adjoining public land frequently.  The current owners graze cattle in the summer months on the neighboring public land leases.  Bighorn Mountain Ranch is offered with BLM leases and a current cattle lease in place with a local rancher.  The land and wildlife management from the current owners include, but are not limited to the following: light intensity grazing, moving cattle out of elk areas prior to season, development of a world class water system with pipes and tanks, and the building and upkeep of excellent improvements. WATER AND FISHING White Creek runs through the ranch, offering excellent small trout fishing with beautiful Brook Trout. Shell Creek on the northern border of the ranch is accessed at the ranch entry and offers trophy trout fishing on public land.  This area of Wyoming is home to some of the best brown and rainbow trout fishing anywhere. The property’s water system that Mr. David Flitner developed and engineered on the ranch is unlike any I have seen.  Starting from an adjudicated spring, with over 20 miles of buried pipe and numerous ponds, the ranch’s water system has a great amount of infrastructure and allows for delivery of water to pastures and areas on the ranch as needed.  It also provides for several tanks and good wildlife water and has greatly increased the overall capacity on the property for both wildlife and cattle.  You will have to see it to believe it, it is truly an excellent and critical resource.  HUNTING AND WILDLIFE Among other species, elk hunting is incredible on this variable terrain property. The current owners lease the hunting to a professional outfitter and the emphasis on this hunting is for management and quality.  They pay a great amount of respect to how it is hunted to ensure the animals “feel safe”.  Our team witnessed this while on the ranch the past couple of visits.  We were able to see and enjoy one bachelor group of bulls in full velvet of approximately 50 bulls.  The hunting method and the terrain suits many hunting abilities as they set up and wait for the animals to come out in the morning and evening from the dense bedding cover of the tree filled canyons.  The ranch is located in Wyoming Game Hunting Unit 41 and tags for all species can be applied for during specific seasons.  The ranch is also home to good Mule Deer, Sage Grouse, Blue Grouse and some Huns. The lower country in the Shell Valley is also home to many different species of wildlife giving diversity seldom seen anywhere.  Pheasants, Chukar, Huns, Turkey, White-tailed deer and antelope to name just a few… CABINS AND IMPROVEMENTS The Lodge at Bald Ridge is described as “that perfect spot” by landowner Mrs. Paula Flitner.  The very well constructed log home overlooks a nice pond and over 100 miles of endless views and the deep canyon carrying White Creek.  The improvements at Bald Ridge consist of a 5-bedroom, 4-bath log home with commercial kitchen, dining room, relaxing living area, wrap-around deck, large wood burning fireplace and beautiful setting.  Next door to the lodge is a the cookhouse cabin which has an excellent commercial kitchen and a beautiful deck with views, plus sleeping quarters for two.  There is also an outdoor cooking area with a great firepit and grills.  The property also has three cabins that sleep 4-6 with full baths and good privacy and views.  The lodge at Bald Ridge and these other improvements are affectionately called the “Upper Hideout”.  The Snowshoe Lodge and Cabins is another complete set of great improvements on the ranch with a main lodge and three smaller cabins.  The main lodge is a three-bedroom structure with three baths and offers all the amenities of home.  A very well appointed home with a custom kitchen and excellent appliances and great room with dining area lead out onto a view of the forest and a beautiful valley.  The three-story log structure includes wet bar in the basement and excellent bedrooms and baths.  Adjoining the lodge on the lower level is a walk-in sauna for guests to enjoy year around.  The three other small log cabins sleep 2-4 and are very well equipped with baths and small kitchen areas.  The Snowshoe Lodge and cabin area also has an excellent garage for auto and ATV storage, along with a walk-in cooler for big game care after harvesting an animal.  This set of facilities is “just right” in the wild of Wyoming.  Power and luxury with peace and solitude!  And last but not least for improvements is the “Cow Camp” cabin, a quintessential Wyoming homestead that is dripping with the history of this great family. David Flitner tells stories of his grandfather and father and hired hands utilizing this early 1900’s restored cabin. David shared some of his first memories of childhood from Cow Camp, leaving me jealous and ripe with envy.  Situated on a south-facing slope, the cabin includes a piped-in spring fed water source, a fenced corral and pens used for horses and cattle.  The cabin has power ran to it and has been restored for all weather use. (They are even building a new outhouse!) It is just something you have to see to believe! Writing about this property is difficult because of the depth and history involved in this family and this area.  We are looking for someone who is passionate about the land and the wildlife that wants to begin this ranches next “generation” of stewards.  I am proud to represent such a fine ranch and a fine family and hope that the next owners will love it for another 100 years.  Give me a call for a private showing of this excellent opportunity. There is also an additional 440 acres available within 2.5 miles Southwest of the ranch called Grisham Ranch. Contact Dax Hayden for more information.

There is also a new organic dairy being built about 20 miles to the Northeast.  The property location touching Highway 6 is also a positive as delivery of products is much easier.  For more information on this property, please contact Dax Hayden today!

The master bedroom was remodeled in 2015 and it is nothing short of spectacular.  With views of the creek and meadows, it is definitely a place where you would want to wake up.  The master is complete with a custom wine cooler, walk in shower, coffee bar and a big screen television. The shower in the Master Bedroom was intended to be handicap accessible with a handheld shower head and a regular shower head.  There is a bench in the shower.   A window in the “rock” wall adds additional light to the shower.  The other three bedrooms in the main home all offer individual baths and excellent privacy.  There is a private office looking over the backyard, Koi pond and waterfall.  There is a whole house audio system in the main home and the cottage.  The security system includes 9 digital cameras with motion activated recording and infrared for night visibility.  Three of the cameras are PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) with iPad or iPhone controls.  In the basement there is a wet bar with a wine refrigerator.  There are two wells on the property for irrigation of the ground and maintenance of the pond.
