$18,500,000 • 13,000 acres
Located on the sprawling, untouched land of Cibola County, New Mexico, Rincon Ranch is a superb 13,000± acre trophy hunting ranch and wildlife area. Internally land-locked within the private land are also 3,806± acres of BLM leased land and 2,881± acres of state leased land for a total of 19,687± acres. This stunning and secluded ranch just 10 miles southwest of Fence Lake, New Mexico, comprises some of the largest and most spectacular canyons in the region. Weaving between sandstone mesas, rambling through canyons, and winding around plateaus, the land on the ranch features native juniper and pinyon pine, ponderosa, oak brush, and mountain mahogany. Over 36 miles of well-marked dirt roads lead to all corners of the property. Yet, with only one entry point, this ranch is both easy to navigate and extraordinarily private.
Besides exceptional privacy and natural beauty, the primary attraction of Rincon Ranch is the quality of the hunting. In fact, it’s become known for some of the best and biggest trophy elk and mule deer in the country over the past 20 years. While most of the surrounding ranches offer only flat grassland, Rincon Ranch’s canyons, mesas, caves, and meadows offer year-round food sources as well as incomparable shelter for migratory animals. As a result, the trophy elk and mule deer hunting opportunities on Rincon Ranch are second to none. Generations of animals have thrived on this land, thanks to impeccable land management, varying natural terrain and excellent food sources that make for an unmatched wildlife habitat.
The ranch owner’s habitat is the sprawling modern lodge in the southeastern corner of the property. Situated on a high cliff with sweeping views of the ranch land, the lodge is a turnkey retreat with thoughtful amenities to set the stage for living in or visiting this incredibly scenic slice of New Mexico.
Rincon Ranch is also an incredible place for observing ancient history through the artifacts and petroglyphs left behind by Ancestral Puebloans, sometimes known as Anasazi. This was a bustling trading area over a thousand years ago. Today one can find numerous ruins, artifacts and petroglyphs throughout the property — evidence of a bygone world that still echoes throughout the land.
Rincon Ranch will cater to a seasoned hunter or preservationist with an appreciation for the natural beauty, privacy, and exceptional topography of the land. Spend some time discovering evidence of ancient life, hiking atop sandstone mesas, or observing the incredible wildlife, and you’ll understand why there’s nowhere on earth quite like Rincon Ranch.
The future owner of the ranch will have the knowledge that the sale has contributed to improvements to help increase the numbers of wildlife on the ranch and maximize the trophy quality of the animals harvested from this superior habitat compared to other regions and ranches.
