Duck Creek Ranch at Laramie Range
1220 acres (400 acres of irrigated hay meadow and irrigation water right) The ranch is situated in the rich grasslands in the southern Laramie Mountain Range. It consists of rolling hills with scattered pine trees and a valley with an irrigated meadow that has a great view of Pinto Rocks. The irrigated meadow is irrigated out of Duck Creek and Dipping Vat Creek which flow through it. It is a great cattle and hunting ranch in elk hunting area 7 which is known for its great trophy bull elk. With this ranch, the owner is allowed 2 elk landowner tags and 2 antelope landowner tags. This ranch has great antelope hunting and elk hunting. An elk herd of 300 to 400 elk live here year round and are commonly seen here and in this surrounding area. This ranch has been historically used as a working ranch summer pasture and a place to winter cows on the hay that was grown here. Improvements include the irrigation system and a windbreak for livestock and game shelter. Opportunity is there to build however and wherever one wants. This property sits on the head of Duck Creek and Dipping Vat Creek which has Brook Trout in it. It has 2 stock reservoirs, 4 stock tanks, and 2 stock/ irrigation reservoirs (one of which, if stocked, would make a great fishing pond.) This property borders the Moriah Ranch which consists of 13,000 acres of great elk, deer, antelope hunting, and fishing that is owned by the state of Wyoming and has public access. This ranch sits in the south west corner of the Moriah ranch and gives you easy access to the Moriah ranch from a side that the public would have to walk over 2 miles to get to. The south half of the Moriah ranch is a walk in area open to the public for elk hunting. The north part of Moriah Ranch is part of the Pinto Rocks Hunter Management Area which through obtaining a permit for elk hunting gains you the ability to elk hunt on the Moriah Ranch and Hall Ranch. This property also sits close to the Laramie Peak Wildlife Habitat Management Area which consists of 36,804 acres of public access and touches the Moriah Ranch. This gives buyer access to 49,804 acres of contiguous property with public access that lays in elk hunting area 7. The Laramie Peak Wildlife Management Area also has great elk, deer, and antelope hunting. It has great fishing in several creeks, the Laramie River, and several ponds. A sportsman's paradise!
