The Fortune Ranch consists of 10,557 deeded acres plus 6,200 leased acres offered in total or six individual parcels. Four of the parcels will be sold on absolute auction,. The ranch is located on the eastern slope of the majestic Sangre De Cristo mountain range in the beautiful Huerfano Valley. The ranch features everything from lush irrigated hay meadows to high mountain pastures and alpine forests. According to the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) the Fortune Ranch can handle approximately 325 to 350 animal units, in an average year, depending on range management and annual precipitation. The Fortune Ranch offers fishing on approximately three miles of the Huerfano River, which runs through the Red Wing and the Higby parcels, and hunting for elk, deer, antelope, bear, and big horn sheep. The Fortune Ranch has magnificent views from most parts of the property, and provides endless opportunities for hiking, horseback riding, four wheeling, snowmobiling, and dirt and mountain biking. There are currently three surface leases in effect for outfitting and cattle grazing.
