700 ACRES - $550,000
The Shelby Ranch is a great opportunity to acquire 700 acres of northern New Mexico property that is less than 1.5 hours from Albuquerque and offers multiple hunting and outdoor recreation opportunities. The ranch includes a drilled well and on-site electrical. Year round access to the ranch is off Old Highway 44 and San Pablo Road. The ranch is completely fenced and offers a good opportunity for grazing leases.
By far, the biggest attraction of Shelby Ranch is its high quality habitat for large game. The Shelby Ranch is located in NM Game Management Unit 6A with close proximity to the Jemez Mountains and National Forest. Shelby Ranch has received one muzzle loader and one bow hunt authorization tag each year for over 8 years. Each year the landowner can choose the hunt to be Ranch-Only or Unit Wide.
H&A Outfitters Inc. at nmbiggamehunting.com explains the Unit-Wide area for 6A saying, “This is your classic elk habitat. The New Mexico Game and Fish Department estimates this to be our largest elk herd in New Mexico. On the North Central end of this unit is adjacent to the Valles Caldera National Preserve and the elk move freely from the Preserve to the National Forest lands.” The Shelby Ranch as a Ranch-Only option offers an easier private hunt on approximately 702 acres with a 1,000 foot elevation ridge-line forested primarily with piñon and some juniper. Senorita Valley on the north side of the ranch has numerous small grassy canyons. Most of the ranch is accessible on horseback, on foot or by four wheel drive vehicle. Elk and mule deer are resident many months each year. Four dirt catchment reservoirs and quality stands of cool and warm season dry-land grasses offer high quality habitat.
