Spreading over 45,000 contiguous acres in Southeast Colorado rests the Cimarron Valley Ranch, located between Elkhart, Kansas and Keyes, Oklahoma.  Over 70 square miles of cattle ranch includes approximately 22 miles of the historic Cimarron River running from Oklahoma into Colorado, coming within two miles of bridging the Comanche National Grasslands to the Cimarron National Grasslands in Kansas.  These two national grasslands, along with state land in Oklahoma, connects this ranch to almost a million acres of public land. The Cimarron Valley Ranch truly offers incredible diversity in regard to terrain, wildlife, livestock grazing, income opportunities and more. Overview: This is an extremely rare opportunity to own a ranch that currently supports 1,600 mother cows while managing some of the best hunting in the country.  The river bottom on this ranch averages just under a mile wide for the entire length of the ranch (22 miles) providing excellent soils, water, rotational grazing, excellent habitat and grass.  This mega-ranch is very diverse with wild game and is inhabited by Mule Deer, Rocky Mountain Elk, White-tailed Deer, Rio Grande Turkeys, Bobwhite Quail, and Blue Quail.  It is not unlikely to hunt bugling elk with over-the-counter licenses the same day as working dogs on large coveys of bobwhite and blue quail.  Cattle Operation: Currently the ranch has over 1,600 mother cows and there is abundant grass and excellent water. The cattle operation is under excellent management and the program is about stewardship and balance between the improvement of wildlife habitat and the management and improvement of cattle grazing resources. The ranch is very well-watered, and the fences and working facilities are in good condition. The river bottom and the diversity of the landscape allow for rotational grazing at its finest.  With an excellent mix of grasses during all seasons and access to running calves on wheat pasture and triticale, this operation will put excellent pounds of gain on cattle.  The turn-key headquarters has good holding corrals, ranch manager facilities, barns, sheds and cattle working facilities. Water: The ranch is rich in water and provides sustainability for game and livestock alike. Currently 10 pivots are in place with quality water supply, and 10 additional pivots are approved with permits for doubling the tillable crop ground to increase the carrying capacity to 2,000 head. Over 40 stock tanks are littered throughout the ranch and The Cimarron River runs underground through most of the property, with watering holes and ponds littered along the river bottom. Game Management: With over 18 square miles of tree covered river bottom, wildlife has year around protection, excellent nesting cover, ample water and plenty of room for habitual movement. The well-managed property has over 780 acres of food plots in the river bottom with 14 high quality shooting houses.  The plots are planted with wheat, triticale, milo, sorghum and some turnips.  This acreage is accretion ground and has excellent soils that make up almost 10,000 acres of very fertile grass and cropland in just the river bottom.  Big Game Hunting: This area is famous for excellent quality animals with respect to mule deer and white-tailed deer, but also offers a resident herd of elk year around! It is expected that the next state record white-tail may come from this area or the Arkansas River drainage to the north. It is not uncommon to have free range white-tails over 175 inches and much larger.  The ranch has world class animals with many mule deer over 180 inches and an elk herd that is improving each year with great crop and habitat practices.  The ranch receives a good number of deer tags as vouchers in Colorado and Oklahoma allows for two buck licenses.  Elk tags for bull elk are over the counter and the season runs from September to January with any legal method of take.  In Colorado, the elk licenses are classified as “C Tag”, which means you can harvest a bull and buy another tag! This works very well for game managers as this tool helps on taking inferior animals out of the herd.  Elk quality in this area varies, but with such a large tract, some management can improve quality.  There have been bulls killed on the ranch up to 370 inches. In a nutshell, this property holds excellent numbers of fine animals and the game laws in Colorado and Oklahoma for this area lend well for the serious hunters.  Quail: The quail populations on the ranch are World Class.  Blue Quail or Scaled Quail inhabit the hillsides on the upper sides of the river bottom and present excellent sporting opportunities for wing shooting.  Bobwhite Quail are prolific along the river bottom and are currently in record numbers on the ranch.  It is not uncommon to bust 20 plus coveys of 25-35 birds per day on the ranch.  The mixed bag of Bobs and Blues and two states to hunt make the opportunity even better.  Pheasants: There are pheasants finding the great habitat planted along the river.  A great spring will offer excellent hatches next fall! There are over 600,000 acres of public land adjacent to this ranch with excellent wildlife populations. Believe me when you plant food and provide water they show up!  Waterfowl: Waterfowl hunting on the ranch is undeveloped, but the land is located in a good area for traffic of waterfowl.  Improvement of sloughs and some ponds could greatly enhance the waterfowl hunting.  The Lesser Prairie Chicken: The Lesser Prairie Chicken can be found on the southern portion of the ranch. This area of Colorado, Oklahoma and adjoining Kansas Cimarron National Grassland hold and grow a good number of Lesser Prairie Chicken.  This area is considered one of the premier spots to observe the birds. The lesser prairie chicken is listed on the endangered species list so hunting is not allowed. Locally, the Lesser Prairie Chicken primarily inhabits sand-sage prairie south of the Cimarron River, a strip about two to five miles wide. The Lesser Prairie Chicken is similar in appearance to the Greater Prairie Chicken, although it is slightly smaller and its air sacs on its neck are red-orange in color, whereas the greater has yellow-orange air sacs. Lesser Prairie Chickens are dependent upon rangeland conditions. Sand-sage prairie, with its mixture of short and mid-grasses, sagebrush, and yucca components, provides the birds with nesting and brood rearing cover, and food. The Lodge: There is a 7,000 square foot lodge, which was built in 2005 and has 7 bedrooms and 7 baths and is in first class condition.  The lodge offers a commercial kitchen and excellent open floor plan with high ceilings and an indoor wood burning fireplace.  There is an exciting trap range just out the back door for owners’ enjoyment.  The main lodge sits overlooking the Cimarron River and some low water ponds in the river bottom.  Privacy is at its best on the Cimarron Valley Ranch offering good access with only one road in and one road out.   Cimarron National Grassland: The Cimarron National Grassland, located just 2.5 miles east on the river, is one of twenty National Grasslands administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service. Located within Morton and Stevens Counties in southwestern Kansas, the Cimarron National Grassland contains 108,175 acres. Comanche National Grassland: The Comanche National Grassland includes over 440, 000 acres in southeastern Colorado. On the Comanche National Grassland, you can explore southeastern Colorado’s rich history. The Grassland has many stories to tell, from dinosaurs roaming the shoreline of a vast lake 150 million years ago, to Mexican and American traders traveling the Santa Fe Trail 150 years ago. The Santa Fe Trail: The Santa Fe Trail goes through immediate area and across the ranch.  This rich historic trail offers many tails of long ago.  It truly signifies that the West is and was a great place!  This ranch, with its ability to connect two large national grasslands, is very rare.  We may never see another time to accomplish such an important task. Ranch Landscape: Rock cliffs, cottonwood groves, grassy fields, yucca and sage brush are scattered throughout the land. Elevation ranges from 3,150 to 3,540 feet. Seasonal variety is provided by native grasses and riparian vegetation along the Cimarron River. The geology of the area includes sandstone, shale, limestone, sand and gravel. Area Climate: The climate here is characterized by mild winters, hot dry summers and cool evenings. Spring and Fall seasons have moderate temperatures accompanied by an occasional windy day. Precipitation, usually less than 19 inches per year, is concentrated from April to September. Snowfall is minimal and short-lived.  This ranch has such diversity it is hard to explain. Twenty-two miles of highly productive river bottom within 2.5 miles of connecting the Cimarron National Grassland with the Comanche National Grassland is truly amazing. Grazing, hunting, history, improvements, irrigation, cattle and wildlife!  The production potential and sheer vast amounts of highly productive land on this operation make it a very rare offering.  Please give us a call for a private showing of this fine ranch.

BIGHORN MOUNTAIN RANCH The Bighorn Mountain Ranch is an excellent piece of high country heaven with excellent views, wildlife and privacy.  This 6,713 +/- acre mountain ranch consists of excellent cabins and lodges, rolling grass-covered hills and meadows that are cut by deep tree-covered canyons and game filled bluffs.  The vast ranch is completely surrounded by BLM and National Forest lands of Bighorn Mountain Range, which typically gives public access into sensitive areas of ranches.  However, this is not the case on this offering.  In fact, the deeded land protects and controls most access to all of approximately 30,000 acres.  With control of so many acres, this ranch definitely lives BIG!  Started by the Flitner family in 1906 on a homestead known as Cow Camp, the Bighorn Mountain Ranch has grown over the last 100 years, adding surrounding acreage and encompassing over 20 square miles. Decades full of cattle drives, wildlife management efforts, new construction, recreational memories and hundreds of untold stories lie within the boundaries of this ranch. Now, for the first time, this legacy property is on the market. This ranch location, just 80 miles from Sheridan and 80 miles from Cody, gives the property access to the outside world.  Locally, the town of Greybull offers all services and a good 7,000 foot runway at the local airport.  For the air enthusiast and possibly the pilot, the current owner has installed two heated helicopter pads for year around access at the ranch, which is just a short 10-minute flight via helicopter from Greybull.  Shell, Wyoming is just below the ranch, and it offers some services and basic provisions as well. Known for the abundance of fossil shells located in the area, nearby exposed formations such as the Cloverly Formation and the Morrison Formation have yielded numerous fossils of dinosaurs and other animals. LAND AND CATTLE The terrain is what makes Bighorn Mountain Ranch so special.  Rolling hillsides covered with excellent grass for both stock and wildlife make the bedding areas in the canyons and the trees even better.  The owners are some of the best land stewards, and their efforts and management of this land has established grazing capacity for livestock and elk to an all time high.  It is estimated that around 3,500 elk travel this region, and between 1,500 and 2,000 elk use the ranch and its adjoining public land frequently.  The current owners graze cattle in the summer months on the neighboring public land leases.  Bighorn Mountain Ranch is offered with BLM leases and a current cattle lease in place with a local rancher.  The land and wildlife management from the current owners include, but are not limited to the following: light intensity grazing, moving cattle out of elk areas prior to season, development of a world class water system with pipes and tanks, and the building and upkeep of excellent improvements. WATER AND FISHING White Creek runs through the ranch, offering excellent small trout fishing with beautiful Brook Trout. Shell Creek on the northern border of the ranch is accessed at the ranch entry and offers trophy trout fishing on public land.  This area of Wyoming is home to some of the best brown and rainbow trout fishing anywhere. The property’s water system that Mr. David Flitner developed and engineered on the ranch is unlike any I have seen.  Starting from an adjudicated spring, with over 20 miles of buried pipe and numerous ponds, the ranch’s water system has a great amount of infrastructure and allows for delivery of water to pastures and areas on the ranch as needed.  It also provides for several tanks and good wildlife water and has greatly increased the overall capacity on the property for both wildlife and cattle.  You will have to see it to believe it, it is truly an excellent and critical resource.  HUNTING AND WILDLIFE Among other species, elk hunting is incredible on this variable terrain property. The current owners lease the hunting to a professional outfitter and the emphasis on this hunting is for management and quality.  They pay a great amount of respect to how it is hunted to ensure the animals “feel safe”.  Our team witnessed this while on the ranch the past couple of visits.  We were able to see and enjoy one bachelor group of bulls in full velvet of approximately 50 bulls.  The hunting method and the terrain suits many hunting abilities as they set up and wait for the animals to come out in the morning and evening from the dense bedding cover of the tree filled canyons.  The ranch is located in Wyoming Game Hunting Unit 41 and tags for all species can be applied for during specific seasons.  The ranch is also home to good Mule Deer, Sage Grouse, Blue Grouse and some Huns. The lower country in the Shell Valley is also home to many different species of wildlife giving diversity seldom seen anywhere.  Pheasants, Chukar, Huns, Turkey, White-tailed deer and antelope to name just a few… CABINS AND IMPROVEMENTS The Lodge at Bald Ridge is described as “that perfect spot” by landowner Mrs. Paula Flitner.  The very well constructed log home overlooks a nice pond and over 100 miles of endless views and the deep canyon carrying White Creek.  The improvements at Bald Ridge consist of a 5-bedroom, 4-bath log home with commercial kitchen, dining room, relaxing living area, wrap-around deck, large wood burning fireplace and beautiful setting.  Next door to the lodge is a the cookhouse cabin which has an excellent commercial kitchen and a beautiful deck with views, plus sleeping quarters for two.  There is also an outdoor cooking area with a great firepit and grills.  The property also has three cabins that sleep 4-6 with full baths and good privacy and views.  The lodge at Bald Ridge and these other improvements are affectionately called the “Upper Hideout”.  The Snowshoe Lodge and Cabins is another complete set of great improvements on the ranch with a main lodge and three smaller cabins.  The main lodge is a three-bedroom structure with three baths and offers all the amenities of home.  A very well appointed home with a custom kitchen and excellent appliances and great room with dining area lead out onto a view of the forest and a beautiful valley.  The three-story log structure includes wet bar in the basement and excellent bedrooms and baths.  Adjoining the lodge on the lower level is a walk-in sauna for guests to enjoy year around.  The three other small log cabins sleep 2-4 and are very well equipped with baths and small kitchen areas.  The Snowshoe Lodge and cabin area also has an excellent garage for auto and ATV storage, along with a walk-in cooler for big game care after harvesting an animal.  This set of facilities is “just right” in the wild of Wyoming.  Power and luxury with peace and solitude!  And last but not least for improvements is the “Cow Camp” cabin, a quintessential Wyoming homestead that is dripping with the history of this great family. David Flitner tells stories of his grandfather and father and hired hands utilizing this early 1900’s restored cabin. David shared some of his first memories of childhood from Cow Camp, leaving me jealous and ripe with envy.  Situated on a south-facing slope, the cabin includes a piped-in spring fed water source, a fenced corral and pens used for horses and cattle.  The cabin has power ran to it and has been restored for all weather use. (They are even building a new outhouse!) It is just something you have to see to believe! Writing about this property is difficult because of the depth and history involved in this family and this area.  We are looking for someone who is passionate about the land and the wildlife that wants to begin this ranches next “generation” of stewards.  I am proud to represent such a fine ranch and a fine family and hope that the next owners will love it for another 100 years.  Give me a call for a private showing of this excellent opportunity. There is also an additional 440 acres available within 2.5 miles Southwest of the ranch called Grisham Ranch. Contact Dax Hayden for more information.

The lower country in the Shell Valley is also home to many different species of wildlife giving diversity seldom seen anywhere.  Pheasants, Chukar, Huns, Turkey, White-tailed deer and antelope to name just a few…CABINS AND IMPROVEMENTSThe Lodge at Bald Ridge is described as “that perfect spot” by landowner Mrs. Paula Flitner.  The very well constructed log home overlooks a nice pond and over 100 miles of endless views and the deep canyon carrying White Creek.  The improvements at Bald Ridge consist of a 5-bedroom, 4-bath log home with commercial kitchen, dining room, relaxing living area, wrap-around deck, large wood burning fireplace and beautiful setting.  Next door to the lodge is a the cookhouse cabin which has an excellent commercial kitchen and a beautiful deck with views, plus sleeping quarters for two.  There is also an outdoor cooking area with a great firepit and grills.  The property also has three cabins that sleep 4-6 with full baths and good privacy and views.  The lodge at Bald Ridge and these other improvements are affectionately called the “Upper Hideout”. The Snowshoe Lodge and Cabins is another complete set of great improvements on the ranch with a main lodge and three smaller cabins.  The main lodge is a three-bedroom structure with three baths and offers all the amenities of home.  A very well appointed home with a custom kitchen and excellent appliances and great room with dining area lead out onto a view of the forest and a beautiful valley.  The three-story log structure includes wet bar in the basement and excellent bedrooms and baths.  Adjoining the lodge on the lower level is a walk-in sauna for guests to enjoy year around.  The three other small log cabins sleep 2-4 and are very well equipped with baths and small kitchen areas.  The Snowshoe Lodge and cabin area also has an excellent garage for auto and ATV storage, along with a walk-in cooler for big game care after harvesting an animal.  This set of facilities is “just right” in the wild of Wyoming.  Power and luxury with peace and solitude! And last but not least for improvements is the “Cow Camp” cabin, a quintessential Wyoming homestead that is dripping with the history of this great family. David Flitner tells stories of his grandfather and father and hired hands utilizing this early 1900’s restored cabin. David shared some of his first memories of childhood from Cow Camp, leaving me jealous and ripe with envy.  Situated on a south-facing slope, the cabin includes a piped-in spring fed water source, a fenced corral and pens used for horses and cattle.  The cabin has power ran to it and has been restored for all weather use. (They are even building a new outhouse!) It is just something you have to see to believe!Writing about this property is difficult because of the depth and history involved in this family and this area.  We are looking for someone who is passionate about the land and the wildlife that wants to begin this ranches next “generation” of stewards.  I am proud to represent such a fine ranch and a fine family and hope that the next owners will love it for another 100 years.  Give me a call for a private showing of this excellent opportunity.There is also an additional 440 acres available within 2.5 miles Southwest of the ranch called Grisham Ranch.

The Red Canyon Ranch is located in Shell Wyoming, in the shadow of the Big Horn Mountains. Comprised of 2079 deeded acres, plus nearly 22,000 acres of BLM, State of Wyoming and Big Horn National Forest grazing leases.This is one of the finest cattle ranch operations in Northern Wyoming. The scenery, wildlife and awe-inspiring beauty of the ranch and surrounding mountains is hard to beat, anywhere in the Rocky Mountains. The operation is divided into three parcels, each of which compliment the others. The ranch is set up to easily run 300 cows year-round. The ranch combines quality range-land pastures, with State, BLM and highly coveted National Forest grazing leases, which allows for an exceptional grazing program. Unlike most ranch properties, the Red Canyon Ranch's exceptional year-round grazing, nearly eliminates the need for feed hay through the winter months. As a result, the current owners sell most of the 1000 tons of high-quality alfalfa hay produced on the ranch each year. For the hunting minded buyer, this Wyoming Cattle Ranch has some of the best, elk, deer and antelope hunting in the state, and qualifies for land owner tags for each species. Other wildlife on the ranch and in the surrounding public lands are black bears, moose, turkeys, pheasants, and grouse. The land on the ranch varies from lush irrigated pastures and hay fields to rolling range-land pastures, to high mountain passes on the Big Horn National Forest grazing lease allotments. Many cattle ranches of this size and capacity in Wyoming start at much higher prices. The quality of the cattle and farming operations, wildlife, hunting and recreational opportunities and quality of life in northern Wyoming found on the Red Canyon Ranch simply cannot be found anywhere else. This is a ranch offers Buyers a chance to build a western lifestyle to last for generations. Listing ID: 49005-00003

RED CANYON RANCH, THERMOPOLIS, WYOMING “Think of it as your own National Park”   The epic story of Red Canyon Ranch begins when life on Earth almost died. Standing on the rim of Red Canyon and looking out over the beautiful vista, it’s hard to imagine that the dove-gray cliffs and rolling tree-covered hills in the canyon bottom represent the biggest mass extinction of all time. The limestone is formed of tiny shells, the dying sea creatures that drifted to the bottom of the ancient ocean. This was 250 million years ago, during what paleontologists call the Permian Extinction, a period when 90% of all life on Earth perished. But the dramatic red cliffs that rise above the gray limestone--the Chugwater Formation--date to around 200 million years ago and represent an Earth filled with oxygen and iron: the foundations for the rebirth of life. The geology of most of the ranch dates to the period when dinosaurs walked and flew, giant trees ruled, and the earth was flourishing, from around 175 million to 125 million years ago. Fossils are abundant and can be found on every high point. The ranch is a true “end of the road” property, with a single controlled access and consists of approximately 1,619 acres. Elevation runs from 4,900 feet to about 6,000 feet and averages 16 inches of precipitation a year. The views from the canyon rim are stunning, from the hundred-mile vista of the Big Horn Mountains to the variegated red, yellow, green, white, and tan strata in the canyon that hearkens to Moab and Sedona. The creeks in Red Canyon are filled with cottonwoods, willows, and cattails, while the uplands are covered in pines and junipers. In total, Red Canyon Ranch has 13 springs, and one spring-fed pond, which produce a combined flow of about 300 gallons of water per minute. All water rights and springs are fully adjudicated or permitted and the earliest date back to 1903--which some have referred to as “Million dollar water.” The 20-acre hay field is watered from the main spring through a gravity-fed pipeline and sprinkler system and additional acreage is permitted and can be added. As a result, irrigation is essentially free, and the field produces around 50-60 tons of quality grass hay per year. Not only is the scenic canyon sheltered from prevailing winds, but the abundant water and vegetation attract and sustain a wide variety of wildlife; elk, mule deer, white-tailed deer, antelope, and occasional moose, are the major ungulates. Hungarian partridges, chukars, doves, wild turkeys, blue herons, and over 50 migratory bird species are common. The cliffs provide habitat for golden eagles, falcons, hawks and other raptors. The cliffs echo at night with the calls of great horned owls. Predators also visit the ranch: mountain lions, wolves, coyotes, bobcats are common occurrences, and once a while a black bear wanders through eating the currants and gooseberries that grow along the creeks. It is also the water that attracted ancient Native Americans to the ranch. Archaeological sites--the earliest dating to around 13,000 years ago--can be found across the ranch landscape and include prehistoric and historic campsites, stone circles, and numerous petroglyphs, or “rock art.” For nearly six thousand years the ancestors of the Shoshoni made Red Canyon—or in their tongue, Engahonabita Ogwebi, which translates, “Red Canyon it’s creek”--their home. The Shoshoni believe that if you are still and observant while walking in Red Canyon, you can catch glimpses of the mischievous “little people,” the Nynymbi, or magical “water ogres,” called, Pandzoavitz, or, perhaps if you are really lucky, the illusive Water Ghost Woman will appear to you. Here at Red Canyon Ranch, the echoes of the spirits and the hearts of a people remain. In 1897, the first immigrants from Europe came to Red Canyon. Jacob and Amanda Nostrum were from Sweden, and they operated a stage lion on the Fort Washaki to Thermopolis road. The current access into the ranch follows the historic Nostrum Springs stagecoach trail, winding down into the tree-filled canyon to the century-old ruins of the stage station. In 2013, Archaeologist Katherine Burnett finished her Ph.D. dissertation about the Nostrum Springs State Station on Red Canyon Ranch. She wrote in chapter 10: “Lying just under the surface is the bracing story of the staging business in the West, the epic narrative of an ancient travel corridor, the romance of a failed romance etched into the sandstone of Red Canyon itself. One only needs to look, to hear the sounds behind the sounds, to get a sense of the journey at Red Canyon…“The most important lesson in in my research on the Nostrum Strings State Station, however, is this: leave your assumptions at the door, all ye who enter here. File away your mythic ideas about Indian attacks and road agents and dramatic chases. File away your idea that just because a ranch was 20 miles from town that the people who lived there were isolated. File away your idea that stagecoaches and stagecoach lines ran in a vacuum. Red Canyon’s story involves railroads and cars, it might even be seen as a microcosm of the changing American West and the role transportation played in it. File away your idea that just because the Nostrums were a family of Swedish immigrants, that they were just scraping by from the red earth of their homestead on the border with the Wind River Reservation. File away your idea that a woman with 10 children and a dead husband could not make it in this area that no longer thought of itself as the frontier. The Nostrums have the following to say: ‘You may think of us as part of the old West just because we live in the West and you found old things. We consider ourselves distinctly different from the ‘old timers.’ We are part of the great progressive state that is Wyoming. We have connections from Riverton to Yellowstone and beyond. We can travel to Washington, Illinois and Arizona, and we do not do it in a covered wagon. We are the story of the west, of transportation and migration and the settlement of the Indian land. We are a part of the story of the Bighorn and Wind River Basins. We are part of the history of tourism in the West, and are a part of the story of the frontier and a borderland that still sticks with us today. We are a family of Swedes who made it to the frontier and yet didn’t lose our memories of the homeland.’ This is the story of the Nostrums of Red Canyon Ranch, of stage stations, and of the unexpected backstories of the American West.” It is, indeed. It is that backstory that led nationally award-winning archaeologists and New York Times bestselling authors, W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O’Neal Gear, to purchase Red Canyon Ranch in 1992. The Gears restored and remodeled the original Nostrum ranch house, dating to 1916, and lived there for eight years. They currently use it as a guesthouse. About 2,100 square feet, the guesthouse has three bedrooms, one full bath and another ½ bath. The main house, known as the Echo House, because of the canyon echoes where the house is sited against the stunning red cliffs, is a custom designed 4,600 square foot log-post-and-beam home with four bedrooms, two offices, one full bath and two ¾ baths. It is designed as a passive solar home with many Saltillo tile floors to store the daily heat that comes in through the large windows. The five wood stove hearths are expertly tiled in colorful Mexican and Talaveras tiles. The ceiling in the formal dining room is done in a style called “viga and latilla,” meaning it’s composed of large logs cross-laid with a herringbone pattern of smaller pine poles. The style dates to around 3,000 years ago, but was especially used by the ancient Anasazi in the American southwest 1,000 years ago. The upstairs office has a 16-foot ceiling with a beautiful log-truss and windows that look out over the meadow and canyon cliffs beyond. RANCH DETAILS: 1. Red Canyon Ranch consists of 1,619 acres and has two houses, a main house and a guesthouse. The ranch sits 11 miles outside of the charming town of Thermopolis, Wyoming. The new Thermopolis airport is only 15 miles from the ranch. Thermopolis has one of the top five dinosaur museums in the country, as well as Hot Springs State Park, which boasts the largest mineral hot springs in America, and a bison herd. 2. The 2,100 sq. ft., historic guesthouse dates to 1916 and was restored and remodeled in 1993. It has three bedrooms, one full bath, and one half bath, two tiled woodstove hearths, and a covered porch and stone patio for enjoying the vista of the tree-filled creek bottom, which runs beside the guesthouse. 3. The 4,600 sq. ft., log post-and-beam, Echo House, is sited against soaring red cliffs. It was built in 2000, has four bedrooms, two offices, five tiled woodstove hearths, and too many custom features to enumerate, including hand-textured walls, a log staircase, unique ceiling features, as well as two porches and approximately 700 sq. ft. of outdoor decks for viewing the wildlife that call the water-filled, canyon bottom home. 4. Currently the ranch is used for bison ranching—national trophy-winning bison. Why bison? As of this writing bison calves sell for an average of $3.50 per pound, live weight. In comparison, beef calves sell for about $1.50 per pound. In addition, the bison market is consumer driven, unlike beef, which is manipulated by the large packers. Though Red Canyon Ranch operates solely as a breeding stock operation now, selling live animals, for some time it operated a local meat business independent of the national market with more demand than the owners could supply. The bison meat market is currently about 30% underserved. As a result, bison meat averages around $5.50 per lb., while beef averages around $2.00 per lb. (based on the carcass weight). The ranch is completely fenced with a combination of barbed wire and high-tensile electric wire. During the winter, the bison water at the creeks and springs in the canyon bottom, but in the summer, water is piped from an 800 feet deep well to eleven water tanks spread out across the higher elevation pastures. In total the ranch has 12 fenced pastures. There are two corral systems, one upper and one lower. Top-quality bison handling equipment (Berlinic) fills the lower corral system. 5. Red Canyon Ranch is the ultimate in privacy. The next closest house sits seven miles away. It’s a completely sustainable refuge filled with the beauty and solitude of the natural world, but with satellite internet access and a new airport only 15 miles up the road.

The Beaver Creek Ranch is located on Beaver Creek in Shell Wyoming, at the base of the western slope of the Big Horn Mountains, one of the west’s most spectacular back drops.  With an elevation of about 4200 feet, the dramatic accent of the Big Horns, just a few miles east, rise abruptly to Cloud Peak at just over 13,000 feet. There are literally thousands of acres of some of the nation’s most pristine and scenic National Forest and public lands right through the gate of the Ranch.   Lying on the lower reach of Beaver Creek as it winds its way through the ranch to Shell Creek, the productive hay meadows have the benefit of a perfect climate to raise some of the country’s finest alfalfa hay. Approximately 1+ mile of Beaver Creek travels through the 140+ acres of meadows on the ranch and feed the reservoirs that supply irrigation to the pivots, gated pipe, and wheel lines that the systems utilizes. The high bench above the meadows allows the utilization of the remainder of the deeded lands and a contiguous 350+ acre B.L.M. permit for grazing.   The 2900 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath ranch style home sits in the shade of huge mature cottonwoods on the bank of Beaver Creek. Finding a better site to live anywhere in the west would be a tall order. A bunkhouse, tack house and Quonset style shed as well as storage and equipment sheds provide adequate room for quests and equipment. The corrals were designed with the horseman in mind and are equipped with frost free waterers and loafing sheds.  Access to the ranch is via Highway 14, about 15 miles east of Greybull Wyoming. Greybull is a town of approximately 1800 people lying on the banks of the Big Horn River. This small ranching town offers some great amenities including a quality school system and hospital.   The wildlife in the area includes nearly all the species of big game and birds that call Wyoming home. On the ranch and in the lands surrounding it, wildlife enthusiasts will hunt, photograph, or view them, in some of the dramatic landscapes in the world. If it’s fishing, hunting, hiking, horseback riding, or just viewing the countryside, Beaver Creek Ranch offers you the opportunity to enjoy the best there is in the west.
