Hawks Nest Ranch - Gunnison County, ColoradoLOCATIONLocated nine miles east of the quaint town of Crawford, the Hawks Nest Ranch is hands down one of the most strikingly beautiful parcels Colorado has to offer. This 160-acre, pure in-holding is directly bound on all sides by Gunnison National Forest lands (1.70-million acres) the West Elk Wilderness (176,500-acres) and has remained under the same ownership dating back to the 1940's. There is not another privately held parcel to the north, south or east for miles and public access to the Wilderness areas outside of the ranch are extremely limited. The end-of-the road location provides the ultimate in privacy and solitude. In addition to the virtual private use of the Forest lands and Wilderness, there are numerous nearby recreational attractions:Needle Rock Natural Area (5-mins.)Crawford Reservoir State Park (15-mins.)Black Canyon National Park (45-mins.)Blue Mesa Reservoir (largest reservoir in Colorado - 1 hr.)Aspen/Snowmass, Telluride and Crested Butte Ski Resorts (approx. 2-hrs.)From Crawford, primary retailers and restaurants are located in Delta (30-mins.), Montrose (1-hr.), Gunnison (1.5-hrs.) and Grand Junction (2-hrs.)LANDThe Through Line hiking and horseback trail (auto and ATV restricted) originates on the ranch and extends through the Wilderness and National Forest for endless miles, eventually connecting with points as far northeast as Aspen, Snowmass Village and Crested Butte. Access to the trail embarking from the ranch is only permitted by the ownership. A public access point to the trail exists east of the ranch on National Forest. The topography of the property ranges from level hay meadows, cottonwood lined creek bottoms and gently sloping foothills contained below the immense mountains that surround the property. The varying elevations, shapes, sizes and differing timber cover of the adjacent mountains are what establish Hawks Nest as a truly distinctive parcel. The ranch affords prominent views of the Big and Little Sand Mountains, Tater Heap, Saddle Mountain, Sheep Mountain, the Needle Rock formation and Grand Mesa to name a few. North and South Smith Fork Creeks are tributaries of the Gunnison River and flow through the ranch, converging near the western property boundary. The creeks are fishable year-round and contain good numbers of brook, brown and rainbow trout. Lone Pine Creek enters the property at the top of the northern pasture and serves as one of the irrigation sources. There are also (3) ponds that could potentially be stocked, if desired. The ranch contains (3) sub-irrigated hay meadows that produce some of the finest mountain grass hay and attract healthy herds of Elk and Mule Deer. Turkey and Black Bear are also frequently sighted. The property will convey with extensive water rights, all seller reserved minerals and is unencumbered by easements. Needle Rock Road is County maintained to approximately one-quarter mile from the ranch gate.IMPROVEMENTSBuilding improvements for the ranch consist of a well-built, hand-hewn log home that was originally constructed in 1922. The home has been consistently maintained by the owners and is of a two-story, five-bedroom, two bath design. Amenities include covered porches overlooking Smith Fork Creek, large living room with fireplace and partial basement. A restored primitive cabin along the creek provides extra room for guests and there are older out-building structures of varying utility (historic log-built storage sheds, blacksmith shop, lean-to and tack room) and a set of sturdy working pens. The property is powered by electricity and propane gas.Few places in Colorado are of equal to Hawks Nest Ranch. The vast Forest and Wilderness lands essentially serve as an extension to the deeded acreage when considering the prohibitive public access and a starting point of the Through Line Trail within the ranch boundaries. Live trout-filled water, abundant wildlife, pine and aspen forests and awe-inspiring panoramas are just a few of the attributes that make this property a once in a lifetime opportunity to own.

If you have ever wanted to own one of the best duck hunting properties in North America, this is it. This +/- 49-acre beauty with incredible water rights sits in western Colorado's Montrose County near the town of Olathe and showcases prime habitat, including being surrounded by the famous Olathe Sweet cornfields that waterfowl love, making it the ideal waterfowl retreat. The hunting rivals that of any prime duck hunting spot, from the Mississippi Delta and Stuttgart, Ark., to the Canadian provinces known for their sheer numbers of waterfowl. This amazing property has 4 North-facing duck blinds for maximum concealment on 3 large ponds, borders the Uncompahgre River and has 20 acres of irrigated ground to grow additional grain or food plots. With the Montrose/Telluride Airport only 15 minutes away and multiple direct flights from many major cities, this gentleman's hunting property is easy to reach year-round, featuring a paved road to the entrance and well maintained gravel roads circling each pond.Disabled hunters also enjoy easy access as hunters can drive right up to the ground blinds and drop off their decoys and gear, with one particular blind specifically tailored to meet their needs. Snow coverage is typically light during the winter with no need for plowing snow. As you immerse yourself in what appears to be the most natural duck hunting spot ever, you may be surprised to know this waterfowl haven was engineered and actually took years to develop. Thanks to the owners' passion for duck hunting and help from experts at conservation groups such as Ducks Unlimited, development entailed digging 3 ponds by the river-home to trout, bass and sunfish-installing delivery systems to keep water flowing and aerators to keep water open even in the coldest conditions. They built islands on each pond for the duck blinds and a 1-foot-deep underwater walkway to ensure hunters could wade safely to the islands. The construction cost for this project was well over $500,000, which would be considerably more in today's dollars as this project was started in 1983. The property is conserved in a conservation easement to ensure it remains intact as a wildlife mecca for future generations. The property's tremendous water rights are what made the whole project possible. With 29.7 shares of Uncompahgre Valley Water Users Association irrigation water, a 2 cubic-foot-per-second wastewater decree and a 1 cubic-foot-per-second clear spring ensuring good late-season shooting opportunities, the property always has efficient water that continuously moves through the ponds to avoid stagnation and keep the aquatic vegetation and fish in a healthy state. For an extra bonus, this paradise borders 1,700 feet of the Uncompahgre River, known for incredible trout fishing and waterfowl hunting. More than a waterfowl haven, this property is also a refuge for other wild game species. It boasts a healthy mule deer population featuring some giant bucks that can be spotted feeding in the alfalfa field as well as coveys of Gambel's quail and large numbers of dove while the fishing on the Uncompahgre River is outstanding.Helping to spread the word far and wide on this beauty, the owners currently donate 1-day hunts as auctions items for wildlife conservation groups' fundraising events. To date the property has raised more than $3 million for groups such as Ducks Unlimited and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. A single one-day hunt recently sold for $6800. It goes without saying that this property has incredible fundraising potential.
