Battleship Mesa Ranch, Unit 5A, Rio Arriba County, New Mexico
Ground zero for trophy mule deer and bull elk!
Battleship Mesa Ranch is +/- 2900 deeded acres, located entirely in the very exclusive Unit 5A, bordering the Jicarilla Apache Reservation for 2 miles . The ranch has been managed exclusively for trophy deer and elk hunting for the last 20 years, with 14 ponds, 11 food plots, large meadows and expansive mesas with Pinion Pine, Junipers, Ponderosa Pine, Oak, Buck Brush and Mountain Mahogany. The ranch receives numerous landowner authorization tags including 8 buck tags (4 rifle, 4 archery) and 6 bull tags (4 rifle, 2 ES archery, 4 cow elk). The ranch has documented bucks in excess of 230 and bull elk in excess of 370. The Jicarilla averages a 200” plus buck and one of the best-managed elk herds in the country. Predators have been extensively managed on the ranch for generations, providing excellent game management. The property offers an incredible blend of approximately 60% timbered land and 40% parks, meadows and sage for the best cover to open country ratio.
This very protected ranch has been in the same family for +/- 65 years and comes with 2 wells, a rustic cabin and a modernized 3 bedroom/2 bath modular that’s been turned into a permanent home. The ranch has end-to-end power, equipment sheds, 2 walk-in coolers and a cleaning rack. Some farm equipment will convey with the property. A cell phone repeater tower lease on the property pays +/- $5000 annually.
There is an excellent road system throughout the ranch for easy access to the water holes and food plots. A few limited production gas pads remain in operation but very limited use. There are no minerals available.
There has been no finer trophy B&C quality mule deer production area in the county since 1960. Period!!!!!
All tags for 2107 currently available for a quick close.
