Kit Canyon RanchKit Canyon Ranch lies between Grants and Gallop, New Mexico, just south of I-40. Located in New Mexico Big Game Unit 10, it offers the recreational sportsman Trophy Elk, Mule Deer, Black Bear, Mountain Lion and Merriam Turkey Hunting. The very best feature is that it has locked gate access to the +/- 90,000 acre Cibola National Forest to hunt, 4-wheel and ATV, with Foster Canyon 4-wheel track going right out your back gate, but only publicly accessed from many miles away. A recreational paradise, the neighbors have drilled a successful water well, so water is not far away, and it would make for a great off-grid cabin site. The nearby forest has a natural springs and creek bottom that service as a wildlife corridor. The best indicator of excellent habitat is the numerous native pottery shards and cave history that is located on the property for the historical enthusiast. While Kit Canyon Ranch may qualify for landowner elk and deer tags, the current owner does not hunt, so tags for elk would need to be applied for 2021. Some landowner deer tags may be available for 2020 (check regulations). With rural land sales going through the roof, and great access from Albuquerque (2 hrs) and Phoenix (4.5 hours), great properties with I 40 access are difficult to find.

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 Ruidoso's 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. Hunting In 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. One of the many outstanding features of El Capitan is the +/-1700 acre licensed high fence game park (oldest in the state) currently carrying a +/-40 animal elk herd being managed to harvest +/-6 bulls a year at $9500 per hunt. There's also +/- a dozen mule deer in the park as well. An additional adjacent 1500 acres could also be added to the park as high fence, if desired. The ranch is perimeter fenced and divided into a total of 13 pastures, including the two in the high fence. The ranch ranges from a very mild elevation of 6400 ft. to 8200 ft. Improvements Headquarters consists of a 4-bedroom, 2-bath ranch house lodge, a 2-bedroom, 1-bath managers house, and an additional 3-bedroom, 1-bath ranch house that needs remodeling.

Caretaker/manager One of the greatest additions to the ranch is the current manager, a very experienced ranch/game manager and licensed biologist who lives but 3 miles away. His knowledge and experience in the area and on the ranch is incomparable, would be a great asset to the new owners, and has shown a desire to stay on with the right ownership.InvestmentWith one of the closest rocky mountain ranges to the great state of Texas, and complete end-to-end paved highway frontage, El Capitan also offers investment potential for the ideal candidate with the ranch being subdivided into 5 separate ranches. You can't get hurt with dirt! Not really sure what one compares the incredible holding of El Capitan Trophy Elk, Land & Cattle to, but the options are endless while the opportunity is not!

(See Owner's Notes below for additional information)Over 20 years ago the father/son team of Charles and Cal set out to find their piece of the Western dream. Charles was winding down a 40-year career in ophthalmology to help Cal with his successful construction company. Living in the panhandle of Florida, the summer heat had them dreaming of cooler temperatures and beautiful mountain scenery. So their quest began to find the ultimate get-away. But before any decisions were made, they sat down and made a wish list of criteria for their mountain slice of heaven. The list included the following:Seclusion - First and foremost they wanted to be off-the-beaten-path. Paved roads and highway noise would not be acceptable. After all, you can get that anywhere and they would rather drop the truck into 4-wheel drive than put up with noisy roads. Wildlife - Being avid hunters and outdoorsmen they knew that they wanted an abundance of game. If the property was secluded but didn't have any wildlife, then what good was it?Climate - After spending their whole lives in the south, they desperately wanted something with cool temperatures during the summer months even if it meant dealing with the snow in the winter. They were both avid snow skiers and snowmobilers so having some fresh powder to play in was just fine with them. National Forest Access - Although having national forest access was not a deal breaker it was high on the list. This is where the seclusion criteria came in. Having national forest access on a well-traveled road is just asking for traffic. This ranch is just secluded enough to keep your average sightseer away. But it borders the Carson National Forest on its east boundary for over two miles thus opening access to thousands of acres.Accommodations - There needed to be someplace to stay while the boys decided what kind of Lodge they wanted to build. This ranch had a small log cabin that dates back to the early 1930's, which served as a perfect place to stay. With a new metal roof and a modern bathroom added it was very cozy. They have recently started building an impressive 3300 square foot lodge that will have 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms when completed. The lodge is 75% completed and livable. It just needs your own finishing touches.Charles & Cal spent weeks out west and traveled from southern New Mexico to northern Montana but they finally found what they were looking for in Rio Arriba County - the Yonderosa West Ranch. The 2390+/- deeded acres in the famed game Unit 4 and has some of the most pristine Northern New Mexico country you have ever seen. With elevations averaging 10,000 feet, the elk head has a perfect blend of open range and heavily wooded forest. The neighboring Carson National Forest was designated an elk calving area and no motorized vehicles are allowed. This place is an elk hunters dream! You can often count several head of elk right off the back porch. If you're hunting elk from the lodge you don't want to leave too early, especially before daylight, as you'll most likely spook the elk you didn't see. In addition to elk, there is a vast array of other species to pursue. Mule deer, black bear, coyotes, and the state of New Mexico just recently opened an antelope season to chase North America's fastest animal. There is a healthy population of antelope on the property in the warmer months.The lodge has a full basement with two single car garages. As the lodge is way, way, off the grid it currently uses solar electricity with a backup generator. There is a well that only had to be drilled about 50 feet deep and has never gone dry, even in the driest years. It has a 110-volt pump and produces some awesome mountain water. There are two small streams on the property that are full of brook trout. Bring your fly rod, as there +/- 8 ponds on the two spring-fed streams holding loads of brook trout, some natural, some man made. As Charles & Cal grow older they realize that it might be time to pass this amazing place on to a next owner. Thanks for considering the Yonderosa West Ranch for your next adventure.
