Description

With 15,880+/- Deeded Acres, the Gore Ranch represents a rare opportunity for ownership/stewardship of a true legacy big game hunting ranch, livestock operation and wildlife preserve here in Western Colorado. A true diamond situated in the beautiful rugged sandstone canyons, natural arches, spires and alcoves of the McInnis Canyons Natural Conservation Area consists of approx. 123,430 acres of BLM administered lands with the Gore Ranch bordering 75,000+/- acres of the Black Ridge Canyons Wilderness area - which is a part of this unique natural resource. The deeded lands then work their way up to the higher alpine elevations of Pinon Mesa with its beautiful alpine setting of aspen, oaks, pine and gorgeous mountain meadows.

The ranch carries on a year round basis 350-400 cow/calf pair and is managed in conjunction with the wildlife to always improve the habitat. With 42,000+/- acres of BLM livestock grazing permits and 7,000+/- acres of a National Forest livestock grazing permit of which these BLM and National Forest permits are contiguous to the 15,880+/- deeded acres which gives this legacy ranch over 65,000+/- contiguous acres (Deeded, BLM, National Forest lands). It truly creates a vast wilderness of sandstone canyons, mesas, and premier big game hunting opportunities. Several abandoned pioneer homesteads and Indian hieroglyphics sites are found on the ranch. The majority of the deeded lands have been in the Gore family for over 65 years - with some original family homesteads dating back 85 years.

Big Game hunting is exceptional on the Gore Ranch. Located in the renowned GMU (40) - well known for world class elk hunting and trophy mule deer. The Gore Ranch does receive landowner voucher tags for both elk and mule deer based on the Landowner Preference Program (LLP) under the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Program. The ranch is an excellent candidate for the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Ranching for Wildlife Program, which would allow the ranch a much higher number of bull or either sex elk landowner vouchers. The ranch offers fully guided big game hunts. Many trophy bulls in the 330" to 400" class have been taken on the ranch. Monster mule deer, bears and lion have been taken as well. Water is abundant on the ranch with creeks, springs, ponds, mud tanks, plus over 4 miles of the Little Dolores River.

The ranch headquarters are accessed year round via a paved county road and include a nicely maintained managers home, working pens with scale, 100+/- acres irrigated and in hay production with excellent water rights. A 4BD/3BA lodge/cabin with 1,800+/- sq. ft. is well situated above 9,000' elevation in the aspens with spectacular views. Less than a 40 minute drive to downtown Grand Junction and the regional airport from the ranch headquarters.
