Just across the Imnaha River from the Zumwalt Prairie, The Basin Creek Ranch is a once in a lifetime opportunity. A chance to own a recreational property with an abundance of hunting, fishing and wildlife viewing which includes Monster Rocky Mtn Big Horn Sheep, Trophy Elk and Trophy Mule Deer along with many other animals. LandThe Imnaha River flows along the west edge of the property for about a mile and includes the well-known oxbow river bend. The Imnaha River is home to summer Chinook salmon, native Steelhead, Bull-Trout and Rainbow Trout. Basin Creek cuts through on the northerly end and numerous springs, some of which have been developed, provide a natural place for animals to gather, making these great places to sit and watch or install game cameras.   This is an historical holding where the Nez Perce hunted and gathered and near where Chief Joseph led his people across the Snake River. Basque sheepherders followed their flocks through this country, and you can still see signs of their travels. There’s an old copper mine on the property that is in amazingly good shape with evidences of a fitted stone floor still intact. Managed with the goal of improving wildlife numbers and with an elevation gain from 1,760’ to 4,000’, you can enjoy your own private wilderness experience as you hike the many miles of trails that lead to tens of thousands of acres of the remote Hells Canyon Recreational Area that borders the property on the north and east sides. A forty acre private in-holding just off the east boundary enhances the desirability of this property.  RecreationJust across the Imnaha River from the Zumwalt Prairie, The Basin Creek Ranch is a once in a lifetime opportunity. A chance to own a recreational property with an abundance of hunting, fishing and wildlife viewing which includes Monster Rocky Mtn Big Horn Sheep, Trophy Elk and Trophy Mule Deer along with many other animals. Easy access to the property and a road that meanders along the west edge makes it easy to take in the many views, plan a stalk on a big muley or just watch the many chukars, soaring eagles and turkey that inhabit the area. The ranch may qualify for three Landowner Preference Tags for deer and elk.  The Imnaha River flows along the west edge of the property for about a mile and includes the well-known oxbow river bend.

Along with the previously mentioned wildlife you’ll see Whitetail, Huge Bears, Big Cougars, Bobcat and there was even a wolf that showed up on a trail cam!  Notable points of interest in the area include Hat Point, Hells Canyon, Dug Bar road, Wallowa Lake (home of the world record Kokanee), and Joseph, OR which is 30 miles away and has great restaurants, art galleries and numerous events throughout the season.
