With over a century of family ownership dating back to 1911, the Frentress Ranch has a long history of production, wildlife and stewardship. The 6,650+/- acre ranch consists of 4,500+/- deeded and 2,155+/- state lease acres, all in one contiguous block encompassing the Yampa River corridor and the rolling countryside to the south. The majority of the ranch has historically been farmed but it is also well suited for grazing and feed production either seasonally or year-round. Conservative estimates of capacity are 350-400 yearlings seasonally or 250-300 cow/calf pairs year-round, and could be higher, especially in wet years. The combination of river bottom, brushy draws and cultivated land provide ideal habitat for mule deer and the ranch is known for producing trophy bucks, often scoring over 200 inches. Hunting for elk and pronghorn antelope can be excellent as well. Additionally, a wide variety of birds including sharp-tailed grouse, sage grouse, ducks, geese, bald eagles, golden eagles and other raptors are regularly seen on the property. Recognizing the critical importance of the quality wildlife habitat on the ranch, the Colorado Division of Wildlife funded a conservation easement on a portion of it, which also includes payments received under the Conservation Reserve Program. Excellent wildlife viewing and hunting is complemented by fishing for large trout and northern pike with over 3 miles of frontage on the Yampa River. Located just west of Hayden in Northwest Colorado, the ranch is within 10 minutes of essential services and the regions commercial airport, and is within 30 minutes of full services in Steamboat Springs or Craig.
