Property Description

The Emery Gap Ranch is located north of historic Folsom, New Mexico, and the far reaches of the ranch extend into the edge of Colorado.

 

History

The Emery Gap Ranch is a combination recreation and livestock grazing unit. The primary recreation use is big game hunting for trophy elk, mule deer, and pronghorn antelope, along with other species that frequent the boundaries of the unit.

 

Terrain

The ranch has a varied topography, with elevations ranging from around 6,400' to 7,500'.

The northern portions of the ranch extend up onto Brown and Davis Mesas. These large plateaus offer awesome views into the large valleys that make up much of the eastern portions of the ranch.

The western and southern end of the ranch are more rugged, with a fairly dense canopy of pinon and scattered ponderosa pine. Fir trees are scattered throughout portions of the property. Large rock bluffs and outcroppings are located along Alps Mesa.

The primary livestock that can effectively be grazed on the ranch are mother cows and yearling calves. The forage on this ranch provides excellent gains for calves to be sold on open market. The ranch is currently operated as a working ranch and is managed as a cow calf grazing and recreational hunting unit. Primary grass forage on the unit consists of grama varieties, western wheat, and bluestem.

 

Water

Livestock and wildlife water is supplied by 5 wells (3 new) and 5 springs located throughout this scenic ranch. There are several earthen ponds and stock tanks throughout the ranch. A large pond on top could easily be stocked with trout for sport fishing.

 

Access

Access to the ranch is provided by a graded, maintained county road.

 

Improvements

The owner's home on the Emery Gap is a modest 5 bedroom, 2 bath brick home with an attached garage. There is a livestock barn, shed, corrals, and scales at the headquarters.

 

Hunting/Recreation

The ranch is located in New Mexico's Unit 58, which is widely recognized for quality elk and mule deer production. The ranch is currently enrolled in the New Mexico Game and Fish E-Plus and A-Plus Landowner Systems.

The ranch is typically receives up to 14 either sex authorizations along with 22 cow elk landowner authorizations via E-Plus. The ranch also receives 2 mature buck antelope landowner authorizations via A-Plus. Authorizations are synonymous with the term landowner tag which allows a hunter to buy a hunting license from the department.

Trophy bull elk and mule deer are prevalent on this ranch. A conservative hunting program is in place to assure quality animals are harvested and to assure the long term sustainability of the wildlife on the ranch.
The ranch was conservatively hunted last year, with four bull elk and two mule deer being taken from the property. Bear and mountain lion are common in this area of New Mexico.

 

Remarks

The Emery Gap Ranch is an exceptional Northeastern New Mexico property. The ranch is located just south of Branson, Colorado and north of Folsom, New Mexico. The setting of this property is in one of the most beautiful areas of New Mexico.

 

Price

The Emery Gap Ranch is very realistically priced at $10,000,000, or $1,200 per deeded acre. Ranches in this area are not offered on the market very often, and when they are buyers are typically ready.
