The Arkansas River Hunting Ranch is a 1,500-acre river bottom property that’s a true sportsman’s paradise. Located near Pueblo, Colorado, this ranch’s incredible habitat offers a tremendous diversity of game on this ranch. Along with the improvements, shop, acreage, riverfront and hunting, this ranch is a outdoor mecca. HUNTINGIt’s very possible to set up and shoot a limit of mallards early morning and move to the goose pit for some decoying Canadian geese mid morning, and then sit in a tree stand for an evening hunt for trophy white-tailed deer. Possibly, the next morning you sit on stand for white-tail and elk as they move to their respective bedding areas on the property. Yes, BOTH white-tail and elk. This area is the next “up and comer” for absolute world class white-tailed deer. The cover and timber mix is such that you can grow and hold trophy quality bucks and you never know what may move in during the rut. Elk? Yes elk on an over the counter tag with any method of take from September 1-Januaury 31. This tag and unit are unique as the fish and game want the numbers kept at manageable levels. The owners and friends have taken several good bulls over 300” as the local and migrating elk utilize the ranch’s habitat. Turkeys, turkeys and turkeys! The ranch is absolutely covered up with turkeys and they cannot wait for you to test your skills in the spring. Elk, deer, turkeys, ducks, geese, pheasants, quail and varmints are home to this amazing property. There are some minimal hunting improvements on the ranch such as tree stands and trail cameras, with tons of room for additions such as tower blinds, waterfowl pits and more. The ranch is prime for the development of more habitat via sub irrigated harvest crops and invasive specie management. (Russian Olive). Duck blinds and tower stands for deer and elk over the plots would also be a great improvement to the ease of hunting this world class hunting property. The ranch is said to have some fishing for walleye and catfish in the river and there are some bluegill and bass in one of the small sloughs. IMPROVEMENTSThe ranch’s main lodge is unlike anything you have ever seen before. It is impeccably appointed and decorated with western and outdoor themes throughout. The ranch lodge will sleep up to 20 and has a great floor plan for hosting parties and guests. It is very comfortable and not overblown but offers great amenities like a custom wet bar and indoor rock fireplace in the three seasons room. There are two kitchens, one for everyday use and another in the indoor/outdoor area with a commercial grade cooking area. The owners have hosted up the 300 guests at the property on previous occasions. The owner also built and installed an outdoor “rotisserie” over a fire pit that is capable of cooking an entire beef at once! (Must see it to believe it!) Additional amenities include: outdoor shower off of master bedroom, bunk room, RV storage, RV hookups, office/studio, commercial kitchen, conventional kitchen, design studio and indoor and outdoor stalls for the horse enthusiast and much more. This lodge makes a great home or recreational retreat. LAND The front +/-400 acres is set up with pivot irrigation, 5 irrigation wells and good fencing for horses and other livestock. The ranch and the ranch is coming off of one of the worst droughts in its history, and still has been able to support 200 Mother cows. There is plenty of water and grass for wildlife on the south end of the property encompassing approximately 1,100 acres. The North 400 acres will require some irrigation or would sell or lease well to neighboring farmers should the new potential owner not be interested in owning farmland.
