Lariat Ranch, Elk & Cattle - San Miguel County, NM End of the road elk hunting hideaway with a great well and unlimited elk tags from September through December 31. Land, elk & cattle. It’s all about the tags!!! Lariat Ranch is an end of the road +/- 1000 acres, very private and secluded wildlife mecca surrounded by large private holdings. The ranch is 20 minutes from I-25 in San Miguel County NM. Las Vegas NM is but 40 minutes with Walmart, restaurants and an airport. Albuquerque International Airport is approximately 2.5 hours and there’s easy access to the state of Texas. HARD TO FIND It’s hard to find 1000 acres anywhere, let alone in the very best elk and deer habitat, all WITHOUT improvements. So, your land investment is exactly that…….. You’re not paying for someone else's dream home. You can improve this to your liking. You can keep it natural and just bring your fifth wheel and ATV. Some food plots, a feeder or two, and a couple tree stands would be a great start. WATER The first thing you see as you drive into the ranch is an authentic windmill, recently serviced, pumping water into your very own water tank. This could be converted to solar or kept in its native state. This tank serves both the resident elk herd as well as a current cattle tenant. HUNTING In this limited area, the State of New Mexico grants unlimited elk tags, any 5-day period, from Sept to Dec 31 and cow tags can go through Jan 31. Deer tags are over the counter for private land. Numerous large bulls have been harvested from this property over the last 5 years, with zero game management in place. With a good land steward in place, the sky is the limit on what kind of bulls could be harvested from this property. ELK WALLOWS Their is a sub-irrigated creek bottom running the entire length of the ranch with numerous elk wallows up and down the creek bottom . Several run off dirt tanks also are on the property, with summer monsoons keeping these full through the fall. OPTIONS The ranch is 3/4 fenced and has a good access throughout, so one could hunt this ranch from 12 to 90 years of age, and get their game out most places with an ATV. LONG TERM INVESTMENT The property also has a 24 lot subdivision plan completed for a very nice long term investment option, should that be of interest. DON’T WAIT! Small and secluded end-of-the-road properties of this size, with unlimited tags at this price are almost impossible to find, so call today for a qualified showing. All 2015 hunting tags currently convey the property. Hayden Outdoors - Co-brokers with all state brokers.
