Chupadera Ranch is 37,644± acres of grazing land characterized by gently rolling hills with pretty mountain views. Lying about 40 minutes east of Interstate 25, the ranch consists of 20,267± deeded acres, 13,387± state lease acres, and 3,990± Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lease acres – all in Socorro County.
Rated to carry 580 cow-calf pairs, it also boasts the attraction of quality hunting (GMU 18) for elk, deer, pronghorn, and Oryx. The grazing lease generates approximately $10,000 a month. The $35,665 annual lease with White Sands Missile Range for fly-over and evacuation provides an additional income source.
Currently, the ranch is conservatively stocked with 400 pairs. Moreover, the monsoon rains have been excellent this year, and the range is very healthy! There are five wells on the property, and water is distributed to a variety of drinkers. The drinkers attract wildlife, are thick with dove, hold coveys of quail, and anchor big-game-animal movement across the ranch. The owner has kept hunting to a minimum but can issue Landowner Tags for elk, deer, and Oryx at their discretion. Oryx are visually stunning, and good populations like this are rare. Free-ranging African Oryx in the United States are unique to New Mexico and can be hunted for 11 months of the year. Additionally, the ranch receives four pronghorn tags each year.
At a price of only $486 per deeded acre, over 17,000± acres of low-cost public lease lands, substantial income sources, and excellent hunting opportunities, this ranch is a unique opportunity for an exceptional land investment.
