The ranch’s first rate recreational qualities include mule deer, elk, antelope and turkey. Additionally, there are coyote, fox and an occasional mountain lion and bobcat. The property lies in the Bijou Valley, east of Elbert, Colorado. The ranch is currently operated as a cow/calf ranch. The irrigated hay fields are appropriated for 150 acre ft per year of irrigation water from a newly cased and reworked 927 gallons per minute alluvial irrigation well. Improvements include an insulated equipment or storage building, shop, horse barn with a tack room, two hay storage sheds, a historic barn with a hay loft and an attached barn, heated insulated shop with concrete floor, garage/shop, four loafing sheds, equipment storage shed, several additional small buildings, sheds and an extensive set of working corrals and facilities.
