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.

Motherwell RanchSpanning an enormous block of contiguous deeded land rising from the river valley to the mountaintop, the Motherwell Ranch is distinguished by its exceptional privacy, diverse landscape, abundant water, plentiful wildlife and accessible location. This landmark property stands out as a rare example of a large-scale Colorado mountain ranch combining multi-faceted recreational and agricultural resources in one complete and balanced package. The Motherwell is situated in the scenic Williams Fork River valley along the north flank of the Flat Tops Mountains of northwest Colorado. Entering at the ranch gate, one is immediately struck by the stunning landscape embodied by this 10,350+/- acre property. From the cottonwood-lined river and hay meadows in the foreground to the timbered skyline in the distance, nearly the entire field of view is encompassed by the ranch. Beyond the private bridge over the river, the ranch rises 2,550 feet in elevation over 5 miles to the national forest boundary, blending a rich mosaic of irrigated meadows, grass pastures, rolling foothills, verdant mountain parks, and forests of aspen and conifers. The upper third of the ranch was formerly a part of Routt National Forest and remains representative of the quality and character of the finest lands found in our national forests. Historically, the ranch has been operated as a highly-regarded hunting destination for trophy elk and mule deer. Complementing the outstanding wildlife component of the Motherwell is plentiful water for fishing, boating, aesthetics, irrigation, and stock water. Its slopes are predominantly north-facing, resulting in lush ecosystems laden with a multitude of springs, creeks, ponds, and wallows. The higher elevations of the property are highlighted by three beautiful mountain lakes ranging between 10 and 20 surface acres in size. The lower ranch is anchored by 3.3 miles of both sides of the Williams Fork River, an excellent trout fishing stream. The scenic and recreational strengths of the Motherwell are further enhanced by its extraordinary privacy and location. Encompassing one contiguous land mass of more than 16 square miles, the ranch has no private inholdings and no impacts from public roads. This is rare for a ranch this size, and results in exceptional seclusion. Yet, for all its privacy, the front gate is only 20 minutes from the region’s commercial airport and world-class ski resort amenities with full services are only 45 minutes away in Steamboat Springs, striking the perfect balance between accessibility and escape. Well-suited improvements consisting of the ranch headquarters buildings, owner’s home, guest cabins and hunting lodge provide comfortable accommodations without being overdone. Extensive equestrian facilities are complemented by livestock operation support buildings and quality fencing. Private bridges over the river link to an excellent network of interior roads and trails to access all the various activity destinations throughout the ranch. Thoughtfully assembled by current ownership through a series of private and public land acquisitions, the Motherwell has benefited from enduring stewardship that is now in its fourth decade. Additionally, there are no conservation easements on the ranch, leaving it unrestricted and preserving that option for the next owner. The Motherwell is a rare example of the ideal Colorado legacy mountain ranch. It’s what many would create if they were able to craft their ultimate ranch from scratch. They would start with a massive block of private land with a river valley on one end, the national forest boundary on the other, and a diverse and scenic landscape throughout. The ranch would have plenty of quality water for fishing and excellent habitat for wildlife and livestock. It would be all in one contiguous unit with no public roads or public access for exceptional privacy. It would be well-balanced, multidimensional, and offer a wide variety of outdoor pursuits for multiple generations. Lastly, it would be located in an undeveloped rural valley that is easily accessible from a commercial airport and vibrant mountain town. There is only one Colorado ranch on the market that fits this description and there may never be another one. It’s hard to imagine a more attractive and complete package than what is available with the Motherwell. The Facts10,350+/- acres all in one contiguous block, 5 to 6.5 miles north-south and 3 to 4.5 miles east-west.Elevations from 6,650 to 9,200 feet with 2,550 feet of elevation change from bottom to top.Borders Routt County Road 29 on the north end which is maintained year-round.Borders four miles of national forest on the south end.Borders 2.5 miles BLM on the west side.90+/- acre of BLM land inside of the ranch boundaries, leased by ranch and no public access.3,070+/- acres were formerly Routt National Forest and were conveyed to private ownership in 1972 and 1992.3.3 miles of both sides of the East Fork of the Williams Fork River, a great fishing stream.The river is a medium gradient freestone stream averaging 25 – 50 feet in width.Additionally three tributary streams flow through the ranch – Second Creek, Sand Creek and Butler Creek. Three large high mountain lakes range in size from approximately 10 to 16.5 surface acres, plus a 4 acre lake by the river and countless ponds, springs and wallows throughout the ranch.Approximately 24.5+/- CFS of irrigation water rights.Outstanding recreation is balanced by productive alfalfa and grass hay meadows and cattle grazing.Predominantly north facing slopes, contributing to lusher ecology than would be found on south and west facing slopes.Varied vegetation including cottonwood and willow river and creek bottoms, irrigated meadows, alfalfa, grass, sage, brush, oaks, aspens and dark timber.The ranch lays out very nicely from bottom to top and although it is very diverse, the terrain of the ranch is gentle and usable with an abundance of parks, benches, basins, hills and valleys.Tremendous elk and mule deer hunting due to exceptional habitat, location and herd migrations.Both resident and migratory elk utilize the ranch.  The area’s White River elk herd is largest in the world.Currently 4,000 +/- acres high-fenced park with trophy elk herd provides additional hunting options through private management.  This could be enhanced or discontinued by next owner.Excellent network of interior roads and trails throughout the ranch.Well-built and comfortable improvements consisting of:Ranch headquartersOwner’s homeThree guest cabinsHunting lodgeEquestrian facilityLocated only 20 minutes (17 miles) from the regional airport and 45 minutes (37 miles) from ski resort town amenities in Steamboat Springs.The ranch was assembled by current ownership starting in the mid 1980s and expanded with several additions during the 1990s and early 2000s.No public roads bisect the ranch.No private inholdings.No public inholdings with public access.No conservation easement.***FOR HIGH RESOLUTION PHOTO GALLERY, ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND A VARIETY OF PROPERTY MAPS VISIT HALL AND HALL PROPERTY WEBSITE ***

With its combination of rugged South Texas brush and grassland savannahs, the Rancho Estrella, located 42 miles southwest of Hebbronville, is like two ranches in one. Encompassing approximately 8,050 acres in Jim Hogg and Starr counties, the ranch provides incredible hunting and superlative privacy for its owners and their guests. The Rancho Estrella is divided into four pastures: the Brush Pasture, the Front Safari Pasture, the Back Safari Pasture and the House Pasture. The exterior and interior fences are high to facilitate wildlife management. Miles of all-weather and quick-drying ranch roads provide easy access. Managed for wildlife for almost three decades, the Rancho Estrella is home to white-tailed deer, bobwhite and scaled quail, Rio Grande turkeys, javelina, dove and feral hogs. While quail hunting occurs regularly on the ranch, the native population has been supplemented with pen-raised birds to keep the numbers stable. In addition to healthy populations of native game, the ranch has a full complement of desirable exotics: sable antelope, scimitar-horned oryx, axis and zebras. The well-managed brush country habitat is supplemented with protein feeders as well as winter and summer food plots. The ranch has 24 protein feeders ranging in capacity from 1,000 to 2,500 pounds as well as 18 quail feeders. To facilitate hunting, there are 30 Atascosa deer blinds and 30 1,000 pound corn feeders strategically located throughout. In addition to wildlife, the ranch is well-suited for cattle. The new owners can choose to run their own herds or lease out the grazing for an additional income stream. There are two sets of cattle pens: one on the Brush Pasture and a newly constructed set that can be accessed from the remaining three pastures. Water for wildlife and livestock are plentiful. The Rancho Estrella has nine water wells; two of which are run on solar pumps and the remainder on electric submersible pumps. There are also four stock tanks, three of which are supplemented by water from the wells. The other relies on rainwater. Plus, there are more than 30 wildlife waterers scattered throughout the property. Rancho Estrella is designed to entertain large numbers of family, friends, colleagues or clients, providing opportunities for both camaraderie and privacy. The scope and scale of the facilities can handle special events. For instance, the focal point of one of the dining rooms is a 24-foot mesquite table. There are two separate compounds to house guests, one in the Brush Pasture and one in the House Pasture. At each location, there is a combination of a main lodge as well as apartments and casitas. The smaller quarters offer partial kitchens and private baths. The Brush Pasture Compound, which reflects the style and tradition of South Texas, also has a swimming pool and a series of common areas designed to bring people together. There is a master plan in place outlining potential expansion of the House Pasture. The owners home is located at the Brush Pasture compound. It is a four-bedroom, four-bath house with half baths attached to the kitchen and family room. While it is central to the compounds design, the owners home includes a separate wing where the family can gather privately. There are two modular homes for staff. The ranchs infrastructure is also designed to support ranch work and entertaining. For instance, there is a 10 x 25 walk-in cooler for storing game and kennels for housing the ranchs bird dogs. Guests can enjoy shooting skeet from both a high and low-house. A watch tower near the owners home provides a view of Mexicos Sierra Madre Mountains. The ranch has been both a hunting destination and a corporate retreat. If the new owner chooses, Rancho Estrella could easily be transformed into a commercial hunting operation. Brush country. Grassland savannahs. Camaraderie. Privacy. Rancho Estrella is provides an opportunity for the best of all worlds.
