Bartlett Mesa Ranch is a stunningly beautiful cattle ranch atop a high mesa with watered, open terrain that attracts big game. Boasting a very convenient location, this very private property is a perfect combination of serious ranching and exceptional hunting.

Big Mule Deer and Trophy Elk love this ranch, but the seller only lets their trusted hunter take a few Mule Deer Buck and a few Bull Elk each year. However, the game unit (GMU 57) has unlimited Landowner Elk Tags and over-the-counter Deer Tags, so broader hunting can be done. Bear, Mountain Lion, and Turkey also call the ranch home!

Sitting moments from I-25 and the city limits of Raton, the ranch has been in the same family for many years. The excellent grasses can carry 400 yearlings or 150 pairs from May to October, and Colfax County has a great reputation for excellent yearling gains. Three wells anchor a water system complimented by Soda Pocket Creek on the north and numerous stock tanks scattered across the mesa. Good cross fences separate six different pastures, and there is an ownership interest in a handling facility located down the ranch’s approach road.

The eastern edge of Bartlett Mesa looks down on Sugarite Canyon State Park with its picturesque lakes, while the view to the south frames the city of Raton below you with twinkling night lights. Most remarkable, to the north, is the State of Colorado and the famous Crazy French Ranch – 19,000± acres of which was just acquired for Colorado at $25 million! The Crazy French Ranch has long been known to be a sportsman’s paradise. The Nature Conservancy and the Trust for Public Lands made quite the deal adding this coveted resource to public lands. The State of New Mexico is said to have its eye on Bartlett Mesa, and a purchaser could likely place a conservation easement on this land if they were so inclined and looking for tax advantages.
