Las Animas County’s Tobe Creek Mesa Ranch There is nothing close to this incredible recreational ranch opportunity, possibly the best value hunting ranch that has ever been offered? In Las Animas County CO, approximately 55 minutes east of I-25 and the Perry Stokes G5-capable Airport, lies the incomparable +/-3863 acres of Tobe Creek Mesa Ranch, in the very heart of the Mesa De Maya Range. Land Tobe Creek Mesa Ranch was surveyed out of the +/-13,000 deeded acres of the parent Tobe Creek Ranch almost 10 years ago, purchased  by an extremely discriminating sportsman for recreation & hunting. With the purchase, the owner of Tobe Creek Mesa received a reciprocal use agreement, full exclusive hunting rights on the whole +/- 13,000 acres of Tobe Creek Ranch in lieu of seasonal cattle grazing rights on the Mesa Ranch. It’s been an incredible relationship, with bull elk harvests documented up to 382, whitetails to the 160-170 range and world class mule deer documented to 240+.  It’s been such a beneficial  relationship for both rancher and owner with a recent extension of the agreement for many more years. Improvements There a brand new (completed 09/2023) 8400 sq. ft. 4 bedroom, 6 bath, single story, furnished barndominium that is designed for very low maintenance.  Complete with multi-car insulated garages, a gourmet chef’s kitchen and a huge walk-in pantry that Outback would envy….  The master bedroom and all suites have their own bathrooms.  The master bath and rain shower room has been described by some as “car wash capable”.  It’s incredible! There’s also a recently remodeled, furnished, 3 bedroom, 2 bath guest house that can be used for additional guests or as a vacation rental for creating additional income. There’s a new well and a new 40 x 40 barn/shop for storage and maintenance of those ranch toys, trucks, ATV’s and side-by-sides.  There’s a cleaning rack, a brand new walk-in cold room and a walk-in freezer to convert that incredible free range elk herd into incredible steaks, burgers and sausage for your family, friends and guests. Recreation Recreational Hunting & Tags Tobe Mesa Ranch lies in the core of Colorado’s Plains Elk Units, the most liberal elk tags in existence.  For over 20 years, hunters in these select units have been granted the opportunity to walk in to Walmart or any licensed vendor and purchase as many over-the-counter tags per hunter as desired (both resident or non resident).  Elk Season is September 1 – January 31.  That’s 5 full months of unlimited elk hunting, unlimited tags per hunter, either sex, weapon of choice and no antler restrictions.  (See page 40 of the 2023 Colorado Big Game Hunting Proclamation.)  And the ranchers and game department represent the herd is still growing, seeing more elk in 2023 than ever! A well-driven pipeline & drinker system supports numerous drinker tanks across the more than  +/-10 miles width of Tobe Creek Mesa Ranch.  With a great side-by-side trail system, and mild 5000 to 6000 ft. elevation, one can hunt TCM Ranch until well into their 80-90s… Agriculture The Sanctuary +/-1000 acres of the +/- 3863 acres of the Tobe Creek Mesa Ranch’s very best habitat has been set aside for bedding and feeding area for elk and deer with with no cattle grazing.  There’s an incredible water tank in the middle and a run off pond that is maintained just for the game.  Two complete  Redneck Blind luxury shooting tower blinds were added in 2022 that allow for some unparalleled viewing and shooting corridors for that long range enthusiast. Ranching for Wildlife The Tobe Creek Mesa Ranch exceeds the “magical 10,000 acres” required for Colorado’s Ranching for Wildlife Program and has qualified and been enrolled in this very coveted program for many years.  TCM receives 4 late-season buck tags (until December 31) annually, as well as pronghorn antelope tags.  Merriam Turkeys abound, as do the 4 phases of black bear over-the-counter tags until quota is filled.  Every waterhole presents a dove shoot like days of old, and predator hunting opportunities are unlimited… Truly a sportsman’s paradise with no equal for unlimited tags, long seasons and quality of game. General Operations County maintained roads to your front gate, internally +/-40 miles of pick up and side-by-side trails compliment the ranch access with no public access behind the gates. One of the best benefits is the 24/7 caretaker who lives on the ranch and is on the property daily.  No better arrangement exists for the absentee owner. History With covid generating over 3 million first time hunters and over 100,000 more applicants for big game tags in both Colorado and New Mexico, is it your time?  Are you tired of of chasing points and/or staying with people you don’t know on expensive guided hunts you’ve waited years to book, only to watch quality big game properties continue to go up at an amazing rate?  Perhaps it’s time for you to own and control your family’s hunting ranch legacy?  No finer opportunity exists than Tobe Creek Mesa Ranch. NOTE:  Aircraft owners – 9000 sq. ft. airport hangar and fully furnished apartment available at the Perry Stokes Airport (G5 compatible) for $750,000.  Contact listing agent for additional information.

Location Being less than an  hour to I-25, G5 capable airport, 3.5 hours to 5 million people on the front range, 3.5 hours to Amarillo TX and the millions of sportsman that call Texas home, it would be difficult  to have a more convenient or accessible location.
