The legendary Black Hills of northeastern Wyoming are the home to the meticulously managed 2,238-acres of Ranch of Our Lady, a magnificent haven for both big game and cattle. Adjacent to Black Hills National Forest and only a short drive to several National Parks and Monuments, Ranch of Our Lady is in the heart of some of the greatest scenic attractions in the West, yet is eminently accessible via Interstate 90. Including many brand new ranch improvements and lovely home, Ranch of Our Lady is ready to shine as a hunting and recreational ranch with a well-run cattle operation.
The Black Hills of Wyoming and South Dakota need little introduction to most Americans as the home of Mount Rushmore National Park and scenic hills and valleys long sacred to the Sioux tribe. On the western side of this heavily-forested range lies Ranch of Our Lady, which is adjacent to several parcels of Black Hills National Forest, giving the ranch an even larger feel than its generous 2,238 acres. At roughly 5500 feet, native vegetation includes many acres of heavy ponderosa pine forest, pockets of aspen, oak and birch, interspersed with verdant grassy meadows.
The water resources on Ranch of Our Lady are outstanding, which includes the live water of South Miller Creek and two solar and two electric wells that feed an intricate water system throughout the property. With excellent habitat and abundant water, wildlife flourishes on the Ranch of Our Lady, including both whitetail and mule deer, bear, and turkey, and especially trophy elk, many of which reach the 330+ inch category. Carefully managed for years for wildlife values through careful forest thinning, selective hunting, and thoughtful grazing practices, the ranch has become a haven for trophy elk hunting. Located in a general elk area, over the counter elk tags are available for residents and landowner elk and deer tags for non-residents.
As a cattle operation, Ranch of Our Lady supports about 200 cow/calf pairs in the summer and is fully equipped with newly fenced pastures, eight new stock tanks, corrals, and three new pole barns at important areas of the ranch. For the hunting operation, six new hunting cabins are dispersed throughout the ranch, three elevated hunting stands have been constructed, and 18 miles of trails for horseback or OHV riding connect it all together.
The ranch headquarters features a new Western log home of 3,531 square feet on two levels and includes an oversized two stall heated garage and shop. With high end fixtures and furnishings, including a deluxe hot tub, it is perfect as a year-round home or luxurious hunting retreat.
The small town of Sundance, with basic services, is only about 8 miles to the southeast, and the region’s metropolis of Rapid City is about an hour’s drive east on Interstate 90. Air service is available at both Rapid City and Gillette. Recreation abounds in the area, with fishing in the streams of the Black Hills and Keyhole Reservoir, hiking and horseback riding through the National Forest, and the world class attractions of Devil’s Tower, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Monument, and Wind Cave located nearby. In addition, history buffs can spend years exploring the mining town of Deadwood, pondering the Vore Buffalo Jump, and retracing famous Sioux battles.
Harrigan Land Company believes that Ranch of Our Lady is one of the best-managed ranches for that we have had the privilege to list. Thousands of those who have known the Black Hills universally attest to their spell. The Sioux knew it first, followed by generations of miners, cattlemen, and tourists. We’re convinced that a visit to this premiere hunting, cattle, and recreational ranch will bring you under the irresistible spell of the Black Hills as well.
