Kim Hill Trophy Mule Deer, Elk and Cattle Ranch
With paved access from Hwy 109 to the front gate and just 30 minutes south of La Junta Colorado is the custom manicured, +/-2200 deeded acres of the Kim Hill Trophy Mule Deer, Elk and Cattle Ranch. The ranch is located just 3 hours to Amarillo TX, 3.5 hours to Denver CO and 2 hours to Colorado Springs. With over 20 miles of side-by-side roads and trails, there are many miles of edges groomed for producing world-class mule deer and taking advantage of the most liberal elk season in the nation. From September 1- January 31 the Plains Elk Unit 137 allows for unlimited tags per hunter, weapon of choice and either sex elk hunting for 5 full months, including using a rifle through the heart of the elk rut......
The ranch has been receiving 2 landowner buck tags annually and the current owner has been developing the world-class mule deer habitat that rivals any in the country. 180”+ class deer harvested annually and a 198” and 210” were taken in the last few years.
The feature that puts this ranch over any other property east of I-25 is the custom-built 4480 square foot stucco home with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths tucked into a hidden canyon. The property features an open floor plan, tile throughout, a 2-car oversized garage and 2 gun safes included in the sale (one a walk-in safe) and 2 wells. AND, there’s a 1600 square foot finished basement with a half bath. The home was set up to display trophies and makes for and ideal full time or part time ranch home.
The heart of the ranch's wildlife and cattle production is the 2 wells. With redundant back-up systems, the wells also supply water to the home. There’s a 72 x 60 insulated and heated shop with bath, welded working cattle pens as well as pipelines throughout the ranch. The owner was a master heavy equipment operator and over the past 20 years has built an incredible road system throughout, cleared miles of edges and native grass fields and manicured the miles of canyons into wildlife corridor, bedding areas and food plots. A natural spring in the very center of the ranch supplies additional water to wildlife. To add to the adventure you can explore a couple of the half dozen stone homesteads and caves on the property. You will be amazed....
