The Cow Creek Ranch, located in the Owyhee Mountains, is comprised of 1,796± deeded acres with another 5,000± acres BLM lease land adjacent to the home place.
There are 192± acres of irrigation rights from Cow Creek, which flows through the middle of the ranch along with rights out of Jackson Creek. The creeks create ideal wildlife habitat for big game and upland birds with 1,000s of acres to hunt and explore. The ranch is located in Idaho, two hours south of Boise, and just a mile from the Oregon border and 10 miles from Jordan Valley. Cow Creek Ranch is a legit 250 head cow/calf operation, with enough irrigated land and hay harvested to carry the herd through the winter. The Owyhee’s are known for big muleys and trophy elk, and this ranch is no exception. The Owyhee Mountains are one of the least inhabited areas in the lower 48 and best of all there is lots of public land to hunt and recreate on.
The ranch has perimeter fencing and cross-fence pastures. The cattle numbers grazed have been around 250 for the past few years with the use of private grazing and BLM land. The deeded land is completely perimeter fenced. Forage for elk and mule deer is still very good with plenty of water. Approximately three miles of Cow Creek flows through the ranch from east to west, along with Jackson Creek joining Cow Creek on the 320± acre home place. Cow Creek and Jackson Creek are the sources for 192± acres of irrigated land and more sub-irrigated ground. Again, this is fenced and cross-fenced.
The upper portion of the ranch has a total of 1,476± deeded acres and is surrounded by BLM on all sides. A beautiful variety of grasses, sagebrush, bitterbrush, aspens, and conifers create an ideal grazing scenario. Springs have been developed and fenced off with troughs below.
