A truly expansive holding set amongst a community of large and famous ranches, Dawson Elk Valley Ranch is comprised of 50,658± deeded and contiguous acres. The ranch is located in beautiful Colfax County where it rises from the most western reaches of the Great Plains to the front range of the rugged Cimarron Mountains. This region’s wildlife habitat and elk herds are of great renown and best exemplified by this property and its unmatched size and location. The lifeblood of the ranch is the Vermejo River, which bisects the property for 11 miles. Numerous canyons, tributary creeks, and lush valleys feed into the river – all converging at the heart of the ranch. The lowest elevations along Highway 64 are found at the bottom of the river valley at approximately 6,150’. The elevation rises as the property climbs through a series of valleys and ridgetops, achieving 2,000’ of elevation gain at the backdrop of Ted Turner’s 560,000± acre Vermejo Park Ranch, which is famous for many of the same features offered at Dawson Elk Valley. The mountainous and timbered northern reaches of the ranch, locally known as the Sangre de Cristos, yield to mesas and valleys which in turn, give way to the river valley and lower prairies. Such a combination of diverse habitat types clearly supports a rich biome and diversity of game. The ranch is located within New Mexico Game Unit 55A, a newly designated “Special Management Zone.” This Special Management Zone occupies an area of quality elk habitat that is largely held by private landowners. As such, private land elk authorizations are now allocated through a negotiation between the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish and ranch managers. Because of its flourishing resident elk herd, the ranch has been able to obtain all of the authorizations it has needed – though ownership has conservatively hunted the ranch. Large numbers of mule deer, black bear, coyote, bobcats, mountain lion, Merriam’s turkey, and the occasional white-tailed deer reside on the property. Offered with the ranch is a 50% interest in the privately held York Canyon Branch rail line. The line traverses nearly 37 miles from I-25 just west of the community of Maxwell, passing though the ranch for 11 miles, and terminating in the Vermejo Park Ranch. It is a rare opportunity for such a unique asset to be on the market within a ranch offering of this quality. Dawson Elk Valley Ranch is rich in history, ecological and physical assets, and diversity of game and habitat.

Beartooth Ranch is one of Montana’s reputation ranches known and respected throughout Montana’s ranching community. Currently owned by the founder of Montana Silversmiths and previously owned by actor and director Mel Gibson, the ranch has had a grand history as one of the state’s largest purebred Angus operations under Mel Gibson and previously as one of the earliest adopters of embryo transplants in the purebred industry. Always known as the “Beartooth Ranch”, this 1,000 animal unit operating ranch consists of over 12,350 deeded acres and 1,000± acres of lease situated in the heart of the Stillwater River Valley just five miles southwest of Columbus. The center of the ranch lies in the valley floor and consists of hundreds of acres of productive irrigated meadows and four miles of protected riparian corridor along the Stillwater River punctuated by multiple small spring creeks that provide open water year-round. Adjacent to this rich central corridor, the ranch runs up through the breaks and pine foothills on both sides of the valley to offer huge expanses of lush, well-watered summer pastures and hundreds of acres of improved pastures. The wildlife and fisheries on this diverse ranch are extraordinary beginning with nearly four miles of “Blue Ribbon” quality trout fishing and moving to huge populations of mule and whitetail deer plus very good and improving elk numbers. Pheasants, waterfowl and upland birds are at home here as well and their numbers are only limited by judicious seeding of grain crops and predator control. Improvements include two comfortable homes, indoor riding arena, and complete shops, barns and other operating facilities – ideally set up for a 1,000 AU operation. In summary, this is a virtually all-deeded contiguous operating ranch in a prime location looking up at the dramatic Beartooth Mountains – Montana’s highest – offering, in addition, a complete package of recreational amenities from big game and birds to a quality fishery. The Facts: ~ Location – Five miles southwest of Columbus and 45 miles from Billings. ~ Acreage – Approximately 12,350 deeded acres plus 1000± acres of leases (primarily State and BLM). ~ Acreage Breakdown – Currently estimating over 400 acres of irrigated land. Balance is native range with large areas of improved pastures that are normally cut for hay. ~ Improvements – Two comfortable homes plus extensive shops, barns and small indoor arena originally set up for a purebred operation. ~ General Operation – This is a well-balanced operating ranch estimated to support around 1,000 animal units. Currently, the owner leases out the various components of the ranch. ~ Wildlife – Because of its lower elevation, Beartooth offers a diverse selection of wildlife from huntable populations of elk, deer, waterfowl, pheasants, and other upland birds to smaller mammals, raptors and extensive birdlife. ~ Fishery - It is unusual to have both trophy quality elk and trophy quality trout on the same contiguous ranch. With nearly four miles of both sides of the Stillwater, Beartooth Ranch can make that claim. ~ Conservation Easements – Less than 17 percent of the ranch is encumbered by a conservation easement. The balance of the ranch would be a major candidate for a conservation easement. ~ Summary – A balanced and well-located historic 1,000 head working ranch with a complete set of recreational and scenic amenities.
