Description

Rare opportunity to own a nationally recognized hunting operation with a proven record of success. The Blue Creek Elk Ranch spans into two counties, the upper ranch and lodge are nestled in the high country between Montrose and Gunnison giving an outstanding alpine setting for hunting and lodging. The lower ranch, located at a much milder climate is near Cedaredge below the Grand Mesa, offering large pastures to grow and cultivate the elk. The lower ranch is made up of years of cumulating property for growing the elk. This is where the operation begins. The lower ranch consists of 7 parcels, encompassing approximately 330 acres. The ranch consists of facilities for maintaining the elk herd, pastures for feeding the herd, water rights, and housing for ranch staff. Most of the lower ranch can be irrigated. 290 acres of the 330 acres are irrigated land all done by underground irrigation system and above ground gated pipe. Some of the best genetics come out of the ranch with the heaviest mass of any elk herd in North America as well as very wide bulls. Blue Creek Elk Ranchs upper ranch is one of the most beautiful ranches in Colorado. The ranchs diverse topography offers lakes, streams, Blue Spruce Pine, Douglas Fir Pine, White Spruce, quaking Aspen strands, high mountain alpine sage, and high mountain meadows all contributing to the growth of the trophy elk herds. The ranch sits at elevations of 7,800 to 9,600 feet, but at mostly level terrain. The upper ranch has its own water rights totaling 1.65 cfs. The hunting lodge is in the beautiful mountain area of Arrowhead. The lodge is not your typical hunting lodge, its a beautifully finished out 7-bedroom, 7- bathroom log masterpiece with two kitchens, huge main living area with stone fireplace, wood flooring, tongue and groove, stunning metal and rock details, private decks and porches, and stunning mountain themed furnishings throughout. The hunting is phenomenal, not only shown by its success but also by the testimonials of its hunters. The trophy elk hunts at the ranch start at around 350-inch bulls with the majority in the 375-450 range with bulls in the 500650-inch range taken every year. During the fall elk rut, the elk herds can be found feeding in the big open mountain parks in the evenings and in the more secluded meadows in the mornings then moving into the dark timber for the middle of the day. Hearing bull elk bugle back in the dark timber and calling bulls in during the elk rut is one of the most amazing hunting experiences that there is in all elk hunting. As the aspen trees on the ranch turn golden yellow, signaling fall, you can start to hear the ringing of elk bulges all over the ranch. With the high density of bull elk on the ranch, the elk bugles can be heard continually throughout the ranch during September and October. With a high bull to cow ratio and monster 400 inch plus typical bulls throughout the ranch, it is an amazing sight to see during the fall elk rut. With the beautiful scenery and vast numbers of elk, there is no place with a better setting to be hunting trophy elk than the Blue Creek Elk Ranch. The ranch has been owned by one family for the last 20 plus years. Its success comes from passion and respect that the ranch gives back to the mountains. Imagine seeing over 100 head of elk each day of hunting with 30+ bulls mixed in, cool mountain air, the wind blowing through the pine trees and elk bugling everywhere. The ranch encompasses one of the most beautiful hunting areas in Colorado, making this turnkey profitable hunting operation a must see!
