This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of the world’s best and top-rated hunting operations, completely turnkey.

Bull Basin Ranch began operation in 2003 with the goal of becoming the “Best” private elk hunting ranch in North America, and after 15 years of hard work and dedication, nowhere else can offer the quality of elk or the experience of the hunt like Bull Basin Ranch. The scenery, the quality of lodging, the amenities provided, and the number of giant elk taken are second to none. The ranch has a tremendous amount of live water running through it year-round, enhancing the elk operation and providing incredible fishing habitat.

Bull Basin Ranch consists of three parcels located in the heart of Western Colorado. The upper ranch and lodge are nestled in the high country between Montrose and Gunnison, on an alpine plateau with breathtaking views of the Black Canyon and the Sheep Mountain area. The lower Red Bluff ranch is near Cedaredge below the Grand Mesa, with views overlooking all of the local valleys and the San Juan mountain range to the south and with Red Bluff and Grand Mesa as a backdrop. Perched on the southern slope of the Grand Mesa, Cedaredge straddles the mighty Surface Creek at the edge of the cedars.

Nearby ski opportunities in Telluride and Crested Butte are merely a highlight of the many recreational activities available in the area, including boating, rafting, snowshoeing, ATV and UTV, ice and rock climbing, hiking, horseback riding, fishing and hunting.
