The Wildcat Ranch of Powderhorn is an exceptional mule deer hunting property. Encompassing 165 acres it is surrounded by truly limited access to thousands of acres of prime BLM lands. The ranch is located in Unit 66 and qualifies for the Colorado Landowner Preference Program drawing, and typically receives one primary draw elk voucher and 2-3 leftover draw cow vouchers. The most sought after tags for the ranch are the deer vouchers, which typically the ranch can qualify for a 2nd season tag nearly every year. The Wildcat Ranch includes a 2 CFS water right and 15 acres of irrigated land which produce 10-15 tons of hay per year including a mix of grass and alfalfa bales. This provides excellent feed for the local mule deer population, and amazing winter habitat for the elk herd. There is a pond on the property as well as several springs, which not only provide water for irrigation, but also for livestock and the abundant wildlife. Mineral rights are included with the property and the variety of minerals on the land is impressive. The 2160 square foot custom home enjoys true “house on the hill” views. This 3 bedroom, 2 3/4 bath, home enjoys a passive solar heating design in addition to in-floor hot water heating in the upper floor as well as the garage. The large soaking tub and incredible views in the master suite are perfect for relaxing after a good hunt. The mining town of Spencer was located on the lower meadow, and many of the buildings have been renovated for typical ranch uses. The old stagecoach road intersects the property to the old town-site and the stage station now serves as the barn. The Wildcat Ranch is located only 9 miles from Blue Mesa reservoir, and 25 miles from Gunnison. Skiing at Crested Butte is less than an hour drive, and the Gunnison National Forest and BLM access in the rest of the county makes this area a true outdoor recreation hot spot.
