Ponderosa Pine covered hills and draws with abundant water and grass has made this decades old cattle ranch a haven for elk and mule deer. Hay meadows wind through timbered hills and high bluffs providing winter feed for cattle and great forage to the wildlife that live on the ranch. Oil Creek meanders its way through the valley that winds past the ranch headquarters. Trophy quality bull elk are taken annually on the ranch. Deer are abundant, both mule deer and whitetail, and turkey, quail and a variety of upland birds populate the area. Wildlife habitat was enhanced in a recent fire that opened up a large area for grass production while maintaining lots of timber and brush for ample cover for the resident herds that occupy the ranch.
Water for the ranch base and the 13 pastures is sourced at a 2900 feet deep high capacity Madison Formation well on the ranch. Pumped to a divide on the ranch and gravity fed to all points from there, this well designed system delivers an abundance of the best water available anywhere. Oil Creek and several springs located around the ranch also provide ample water for the benefit of livestock and wildlife.
Oil Creek Ranch consists of over 2900+ deeded acres and approximately 3400+ acres in total including the state of Wyoming leases, and is located within a tightly held area of large blocked ranches. The buyer who seeks a viable ranching operation along with a second to none recreational property can maximize both lifestyle and investment opportunity with this classic western ranch in the heart of Black Hills country.
