Comanche National Grassland : Model : Otero County : Colorado

Ranch Description

This 160 acres of property sits inside some of the wildest country CO has to offer. While being surrounded by over 440,000 acres of the Comanche National Grasslands, which is operated by the U.S. Forest Service. This property is accessible year round by County Roads. There are many miles of Forest Service roads that are begging to be explored on the Grasslands. The property itself is off the grid.Land The property is primarily made up of native pasture. With a few draws that offer cover for Mule Deer and Pronghorn Antelope. There are two nearby creek drainages on the adjacent public land. Views of the distant Rocky Mountains can be seen throughout the property. There are also many Pinyon covered Canyons nearby, which hold both Plains Elk and Bighorn Sheep.

Recreation This area is known for it's large Antelope herd. You can easily draw private land only Pronghorn buck tags each year in unit 135. Some years, these tags are available as leftovers. The creek drainages nearby do hold White-Tailed deer and you can also easily draw Whitetail Only Doe tags, which are list B tags. If you want to chase Plains Elk in the nearby canyons. These tags are available unlimited, either sex, and over the counter. They are a list C license, which means any hunter can hold an unlimited amount of them. This gives you the ability to hunt Plains Elk from Sept. 1st through January 31st, and hunt with any weapon deemed legal by CO. Your weapon of choice. This parcel of land could be enrolled in the CO land owner preference program 160 acre minimum requirement, which allows you to draw landowner tags, and increases your odds of drawing certain tags. I believe this property would also make an excellent location for a motorsport enthusiast's base camp. There are many miles of jeep trails/ATV trails which are uncrowded, on the adjacent public lands.

Region & Climate This part of SE CO has a very moderate climate, especially in the winter months. It is not rare to expect 70 degree days at times in the winter. Snow does fall here, but the area receives some 250+ days of sunshine each year. Which does not lead to snow sticking around long.

History The area is home to the historic Santa Fe Trail, which can be traveled by Jeep/SUV. Wagon rut's are still visible in some locations, from days gone by, to this day, on the nearby grasslands.

Location The land is located 25-30 minutes South of Rocky Ford, a quaint farming community located along the Arkansas River. 1.5 hours from Pueblo, and 2.3 hours from Colorado Springs. Or 3.3 hours South of Denver. There are no Covenants or special Restrictions here. Let freedom reign. Please call for a qualified showing.

Directions to Ranch

From Rocky Ford take Highway 71 South. A mile or so before Highway 350 turn right on T road. At the fork in the road stay left, then take an immediate right on County Road 16. Stay on County Road 16 until you reach the property. You may need a GPS with On X mapping layers to identify the property.
