If you are looking for a beautiful property with absolute peace and quiet, look no further. The beautiful Sivers Ranch is a 960 deeded acre property with recreational and hunting opportunities for many types of wildlife including deer, elk, bear, mountain lion, turkey, bobcats, coyotes and a variety of small game animals. The property features tree covered ridges, grassy meadows and a seasonal creek winding down the bottom of the canyon. Land This 960 acre property is located in SW Colorado about 25 minutes southwest of Pagosa Springs, Colorado. The Sivers Ranch is absolutely beautiful and is very private and secluded and is a property that will rejuvenate your soul. I have explored much of the property and I haven’t been able to spot another home from anywhere on the property. If you want absolute peace and quiet, this just might be what you have been looking for. Approximately ¾ of the perimeter of the property adjoins Southern Ute Indian Tribal property, which gives almost certainty that there will never be any development in those areas. There is a good mix of open grassy meadows, Pine, Cedar and Oak Brush covered ridges and thick Pine forests. There is a seasonal creek that meanders down the bottom on the canyon that retain pools of water for parts of the spring and summer. Note: There is an additional adjoining 40 acre tract that will be transferred with a quit claim deed at no additional cost. There are no conservation easements on this property. Improvements There is an extensive trail system that will give you easy access to explore your property and enjoy the views and wildlife. With the miles of trails you won’t ever be too far away from a trail when you harvest that trophy. You will be able to load your game up on your side by side and haul it out. The trail system is nicely improved and suitable for side by sides, 4-wheelers, horseback, mountain bikes or hiking. There is a dam across the creek bottom that retains water throughout the summer for one water hole and there is another natural water hole that also attracts and keeps the wildlife nearby. The water holes are a great location to sit and watch for wildlife or set up a game camera and be surprised by what comes in when you aren’t there. Recreation This property will make an outstanding hunting property and there are no conservation easements. There are miles of improved ATV trails that you can use to explore your property or to pack out your big game animals. The property ranges from 6,700-7,700 feet elevation and has a good mix of wooded and oak covered ridges, dense Ponderosa Pine forests and grassy meadows. The adjoining Southern Ute Tribal lands are known to have low hunting pressure for their wildlife herds, which allows the animals to reach full maturity. The Tribal lands in the area produce many of the largest trophy animals in the region. The Sivers property, being mostly encompassed by the Tribal land is perfect to benefit from those same herds that move back and forth across the Sivers Ranch, to and from the surrounding Tribal lands. The wildlife roaming this ranch include mule deer, elk, bear, mountain lion, bobcats, coyotes, turkeys, wild horses and a variety of small game animals. The property is in Game Unit 771 and qualifies for (2) Colorado landowner mule deer tags. Mule deer tags in Game Unit 771 are by drawing only, so having (2) landowner tags that you can count on each year is a huge benefit. Over the counter bull elk tags are available for CO Game Unit 771 during the 2nd and 3rd rifle seasons. There are a couple of watering holes that appear to consistently hold water year around and are a great place to catch the wildlife quenching their thirst or wallowing in them to cool down on a warmer day. Set up a game camera and see what comes in. Location This Sivers Ranch is located in SW Colorado about 25 minutes southwest of beautiful Pagosa Springs, Colorado.
