Forbes Wagon Creek Ranch (F.W.C.R.) is located in Colorado Game Management Unit (GMU) 83 in the Sangre De Cristo mountains of southern Colorado. It is a unique 17,000-acre private development with gated access that is covenant controlled and protected. From the primary entrance at County Road 25, the nearest sizable towns include Walsenburg located approximately 40-minutes to the east and Alamosa situated approximately 30-minutes to the west. The nearest primary retail services are available in Alamosa. GMU 83 allows the purchase of over-the-counter archery licenses for both cow and bull elk and over-the-counter licenses for second and third rifle seasons (antlered elk). Several trophy class Mule Deer have been harvested throughout the ranch and black bear sightings are common. Deer licenses for all seasons (archery thru 4th rifle) are on a draw basis. The larger property is managed by the F.W.C. Ranch Owners Association, which oversees roads maintenance, wildfire response, hunting, cattle/grazing, building and camping regulation and patrol committees. Owners within F.W.C.R. retain the option to allow or disallow hunting on their parcels. Each parcel owner is required to acquire a hunting permit through the Ranch Owners Association and is allowed up to (4) per year (see attached Hunting Letter for more details). Currently, about 60% of ranch property owners permit hunting, including select tracts that abut public lands on the east side of the larger development (see attached map). As an enrolled property owner, that equates to over 10,000 allowable private hunting acres plus public land access. FWCR Declaration of Covenants, Bylaws and other related documents available upon request. Annual Ranch Owners Association dues are $375 per year.
