Description of the Land

Bison Springs Ranch is an oasis within the Llano Estacado of southeastern New Mexico. The expanse of the ranch overlooks the vast Pecos River Valley and the adjoining Bottomless Lakes State Park. Proximity of the ranch is only fifteen miles east of Roswell, eight miles northeast of Dexter, and sixty-five miles east of the mountain resort community of Ruidoso, New Mexico. Roswell, population 50,000 people, is the hub city for southeastern New Mexico and is the Chaves County seat.

Access is off Wichita, a paved road then east along the new Bison Springs Ranch Road which has gated controlled access. This ranch offers an exclusive cowboy lifestyle without sacrificing the urban services.

Bison Springs Ranch is a sprawling territory of approximately 9,400 acres. That is over 14 sections of native New Mexico rangeland. The acreage and land classification includes 4,630 deeded, 3,485 federal BLM, and 1,284 New Mexico state lease acres.

What is unique is that the deeded land controls all ranch vehicle access.

Bison Springs Ranch has enviable location and a multiple of diverse land uses. The western end of the ranch, roughly 720 deeded acres, falls off the Pecos escarpment into a secluded pretty little valley and a wetland marsh area. Feeding the marsh is a large volume artesian spring. Location of this marsh area is within the Pecos River Valley flyway. The marsh and its shallow lakes are an attractant for migratory birds, water fowl, and huge desert mule deer. Currently this area of the ranch participates as an Open Gate Property contracted with the New Mexico Game and Fish permitting public access for seasonal hunting. It is income producing and can be continued or discontinued at the owners discretion.

Diverse topography, vegetation, and water resource create a unique wildlife sanctuary. In addition to water fowl the ranch has quail, dove, desert mule deer, and pronghorn antelope. All species are available for seasonal hunting.

As a cultural resource, Bison Springs Ranch is archeologically exciting. Within the ranch are many arroyos with water holes and springs. Remains of prehistoric and historic Bison kills are found within the arroyos as are Native American campsites and fire rings. Arrowheads are often the reward to the careful observer.

Adjacent developed recreational land uses include the Bottomless Lakes State Park Recreation area and the private, exclusive Fin and Feather Sportsmans Hunt Club.

Ranch topography is extremely diversified and unique to the area. Rangesites begin with the higher elevations comprised of rolling hills, undulating terrain, big draws, and open areas blending into arroyos and washes cutting through the bluffs draining to the bottomland.
