Have you ever wanted to realistically have the chance to harvest a 350 to 400 inch bull elk on a consistent basis? If so this is the property you've been waiting for! Located in western Pueblo county snuggled against the Wet Mountains on a mountain ridge above Babcock hole. Sangre De Cristo Outfitter's has the hunting lease in the San Isabel National Forest in Babcock hole. I've seen pictures of harvested bulls scoring between 350 and 400 inches coming out of Babcock hole on an annual basis. This 40 acre parcel adjoins thousands of acres of National Forest above Babcock hole, and gives easy access into this secret honey hole. There's no easy way for the public to get into this area without packing a horse and navigating very rugged terrain. A bull elk, rumored scoring 411 inches came from Babcock hole within the last few years. Vaughn ranch is a highly sought after subdivision that offers incredible views of Pikes Peak and Pueblo Reservoir. This property is located some 17 miles west of Pueblo. The commute to Pueblo is short and beautiful with well maintained roads in between. Vaughn ranch is a private and gated community for land owners only. This lot is one of the few lots in Vaughn ranch that adjoins the San Isabel National Forest and has deeded access to the National Forest. This property has a variety of vegetation, from mature Ponderosa to Juniper, Pinon, and Gambel Oak. The property has a good mixture of small grassy meadows and thick tree cover. The property has a very nice spring fed pond that attracts wildlife like a magnet. Elk, Deer and Turkey sign is found everywhere throughout the property. The best part about this property is that due to several large ranches in the area, access to the National Forest is extremely limited. The large ranches nearby land lock public access into this large parcel of National Forest. One would have to walk many miles up and down many thousand feet to access the National Forest that this property adjoins right out the back door to the west. The only thing better than a property like this would be to buy a much larger and more expensive piece of property! If riding horses or hunting is your passion this property is ideal. The land isn't steep and inaccessible, and the National Forest is accessible and user friendly from this property! Power, phone, and high speed internet is already on the property, so all one would have to do is apply for a well permit and drill a well if you wanted to make this paradise your home. Pictures don't do this property justice! You really have to come take a look. The property sits at about 6600 feet above sea level, which is a great elevation in Colorado. This elevation is just high enough to escape extreme summer heat, while allowing for a milder winter, and less snowfall. The wet mountains are so named, because in the summer month's the monsoon brings daily moisture to this area, which is significantly higher than the land just 5 miles east of here. Property like this is a hunters dream and is a bargain for the access it provides all by itself. Call for a qualified showing today. Co- Brokers Welcome!
