Record Class Bull Elk, Bass, Bucks, Bluegills, Pronghorns, Black Angus & Blue Cats! When one pulls just a quarter-mile off the Highway into Catron County's +/-18,800acre Rito Springs Ranch, a transformation take's place. Catron County, Southwest New Mexico, is ground zero for producing some of the biggest Rocky Mountain Bull Elk in the country and is home to New Mexico's Big Game Unit 12, the unit that holds the current state record bull elk, a 420+ monster. In the very heart of Catron County and BGU Unit 12 is the incomparable Catron County's Rito Springs Ranch, totaling +/-9579 deeded acres, including senior water rights irrigating +/-200 acres! Toss in for good measure an additional +/-9,221 acres of State and BLM grazing lease, and your total ranch is +/-18,800 acres! Priced at an incredible value of $887 per deeded acre!The ranch is easily accessible from US Highway 60, about half way between the incredible Pie Shop of Pietown and the home-cooking cafe in Quemado, New Mexico. With approximately 7-miles of highway frontage, the holding is remarkably private. From the highway, one never realizes the beautiful oasis that exists just inside the fence provided by the canyons, springs, lake and creek. Phoenix is 4 hours & 30 minutes, Albuquerque International airport is 2 hours & 30 minutes, the closest jet-capable airport is Springerville, Arizona at 55-minutes and Socorro, NM is 90 minutes.Holdings such as Catron County's Rito Springs Ranch have been in the same family for close 100 years. It's time to pass the baton to the next "keeper of the land"! While the ranch has been a historic cattle producer for close to a century, the full recreational aspect of such a property is yet to be tapped. While producing world-class bull elk, book-class antelope and some exceptional mule deer, the ranch is one of the nations best candidates with very little actual adjustment from a cattle centric property to game centric, that would result as one of the nation's premier hunting & recreational ranches in existence today. Ranch & Improvements+/-9579 deeded acres +/-1,180 acres BLM Grazing Lease (can be sublet)+/-8041 acres State Grazing Lease (can be sublet)-------+ - 18,800 acres (Note: +/-2800 acres of deeded rangeland is enrolled in a conservation Easement, allowing for ranching, hunting, & recreation, but prohibiting commercial or subdivision.)WaterIt's been said that water is the gold these days and if so, then Catron County's Rito Springs Ranch is Ft Knox! The +/-15-acre spring fed Rito Springs Reservoir, at the head of one of the many canyons that cross the ranch, is stocked with largemouth bass, bluegill, yellow perch and beautiful blue cats. The breathtaking water fall feeds into the irrigation system that floods over 200-acres of river bottom. When the wheat is in, one has to push an elk out to get an antelope or mule deer in! This ranch has consistently produced a grazing & hunting income in the $200,000 a year, not including gravel or water sales. In addition to the springs, there are 10 excellent producing wells on the ranch, feeding water lines and drinkers. Water quality is considered good. Houses and Other BuildingsResidential improvements are modest with no improvement value in the pricing. At headquarters, there is a 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath home that the owner stays in when at the ranch working and some hunters have leased. Also at headquarters is a large steel shop/feed barn and a metal two-car garage. At the Palmer Place, there is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home that the hired caretaker lives in and a shop building constructed of metal and shipping containers. On your showing, please ask your broker to show you a couple of the ideal locations for your dream home, with water and power nearby. There is a private cemetery located near headquarters. The owner is the only one with right to access the cemetery, and does not intend to keep a right to access the cemetery if the ranch is sold.

Hunting Game Management Unit 12In 2020, the ranch received 10 rifle bull tags, 4 cow tags and 2 either-sex archery tags. Mule deer and a very nice antelope herd reside on the ranch. Waterfowl is excellent on the reservoir and ponds, with September dove hunting and plenty of predator calling. PasturesThe ranch is divided into four larger pastures, and nine smaller pastures. Each of the large pastures has a smaller trap or pasture that can be used when gathering and working cattle during branding, weaning, etc. Rodriguez is a smaller pasture that is used for calving heifers. The other smaller pastures are generally situated along the creek where the irrigated and sub-irrigated land is located. Fencing is considered good and the entire ranch has 30-miles of accessible trails and roads. CorralsThere are working corrals scattered throughout the ranch. There is a large set of steel corrals with scales and squeeze chute at the headquarters for working and shipping cattle, steel working corrals at the Log House and at the Palmer Place, and steel panel working corrals at Cat Well. At Rodriguez Well, there are working corrals constructed of lumber and mesh wire. With todays sportsman closed off from travel to Africa, Canada, Argentina, New Zealand and Scotland, demand for free range domestic trophy hunting experiences has never been higher, and waiting lists for private land tags could go into the decades. For the investor that is looking for alternatives to shaky high-priced markets to secure their lifetime of work, legacy land holdings are flying off the shelves. Large land holdings such as Catron County's Rito Springs Ranch that are well valued, that don't have over priced improvements that require paying for someone else's dream, with the coveted big game tags that are so precious and almost impossible to find, with easy access to major metropolitan areas, with incomparable water and with abundant big game tags, and with income, not sure what one compares Rito Springs Ranch at $887 per deeded acre.Call or email today for more information and to schedule a qualified showing.

Very seldom does one find the true perfect property to escape, retire, vacation or legacy family retreat......all rolled into one! Twin Pines, Mimbres Valley New Mexico, just might fit the bill. With an exquisitely designed and constructed custom home less than a frisbee throw from the millions of acres of the Gila National Forest, complemented by not one but two custom outbuildings, spread across +/- 40 acres, all nestled against the foothills and meadows of the Mimbres River Valley, surrounded and protected by millions of acres of national forest. About 45 minutes from the dining, restaurants, airport, hospital and Super Walmart of Silver City, New Mexico, one needs to look no further than the Twin Pines Ranch. No expense was spared in the design and construction of Twin Pines. The +/- 5200 sq. ft. main house has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths on a single level with wrap around porch that compliments the valley views and highlights the end-of-the-road privacy. A huge 3-car attached garage leads you into a guest suite with 1 bedroom, 1bath and the house saloon complete with an old west bar you have to see! The master suite, with ensuite bath and closet, are a home unto themselves. The massive kitchen flows as part of the great room, with separate formal dining room, is an incredible entertaining spot for for family and friends. All steel construction, copper-colored metal roof, 10 inch walls and 2 offices are but a few of the construction features that make Twin Pines so irreplaceable at todays costs. Covenants (but no HOA) help ensure that your neighbors will have as much respect for the neighborhood as you do. The Gila Forest allows for miles and miles of ATV access and Lake Roberts, about 15 minutes up the road, allows for great boating and fishing so one needs a place for toys.... Complimenting the main home are two custom outbuildings. The first is 100 x 50 with 12 ft. wings on each side, is fully heated and insulated with a kitchen and 3/4 bath, is RV capable storage but could easily be set up as work office or guest home. The other is a custom built 60 x 60 with large bay, also capable of any use imaginable, including a possible conversion into horse facilities. Both are served with year-round gravel access, power and propane. A gun range on the property is also very handy. Water rights compliment Twin Pines Ranch for domestic home use and gardening. A gentle +/- 6300 ft. elevation allows for a moderate four-season climate with cooler summers and mild winters. Albuquerque, El Paso and/or Tucson are all +/- 3 hours from the ranch. With todays "escapism" rampant, 40% of America still working from home, construction replacement costs doubling over the last 3 years and an additional 30% in the last 30 days, it would take millions upon millions to replace this meticulous manor at todays costs.

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 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. There's a large 60' x 80' metal shop, full elk handling facilities, corrals, and traps for breeding. All are included. There's an additional cabin, outbuildings & barns on the property. Two stocked ponds compliment the headquarters (trout, bass, bluegills) with water available for additional water improvements throughout. 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.
