$19,750,000  •  5,950 acres
With 5,950± deeded acres, the Escalante Ranch represents a rare opportunity for ownership/stewardship of a true legacy livestock operation, big game hunting ranch, and recreational and wildlife preserve here in Western Colorado. A true historic jewel situated between Grand Junction and Delta in the spectacular canyon country of the Uncompahgre Plateau. Escalante Ranch borders the beautiful Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area comprised of 210,172± acres of protected public lands and includes the 66,280-acre Dominguez Canyon Wilderness. Known for its breathtaking scenery, Dominguez-Escalante NCA is a fine example of the spectacular canyon country of the Uncompahgre Plateau. Red-rock canyons and sandstone bluffs hold geological and paleontological resources spanning 600 million years, as well as many cultural and historic sites. The Ute Tribes today consider these pinyon-juniper–covered lands an important connection to their ancestral past. The ranch lies 25 miles south of Grand Junction and 12 miles northwest of Delta, Colorado. Stretching from the Gunnison River to the top of the Uncompahgre Plateau, it covers approximately 5,950± deeded acres and over 100,000± acres of BLM and National Forest grazing allotments. This contiguous block of land is approximately 6 miles wide and 30 miles long, with the elevation ranging from 4,600 feet along the Gunnison River in the lower elevations with beautiful mesa benches, red-rock canyons, and sandstone bluffs and then work their way up to the higher alpine elevations of over 9,200feet of the Uncompahgre Plateau with its gorgeous alpine setting of aspen, pine, oaks, and pristine mountain meadows. The change in elevation makes for unusually dry mild winters down in the lower elevations where the ranch headquarters are located and cooler moist summers in the higher alpine country. It is the ideal home and livestock setup for a 1,400 head cow-calf operation with both BLM and NF grazing allotments. With 100,000± acres of BLM and National Forest livestock grazing permits of which these permits are contiguous to the 5,950± deeded acres which gives this legacy ranch approximately 105,950± acres or 165± square miles of Deeded, BLM, and National Forest lands. The ranch (known as the Musser Ranch for the last 100 years) was amassed by the Musser brothers, Jack & Tom, and their father over the last 100 years. The Musser brothers were known for their promotion and sale of Beefmaster cattle. The ranch changed ownership in 1990 when purchased by Dick Miller, an east slope farmer whose family still actively manages the ranch and their farming operations today.

Unit 62 has over the counter bull elk tags for archery and two rifle seasons, except for muzzleloader and 1st rifle seasons, which are typically easy to draw.
