Shell Creek Meadows presents an exceptional all-encompassing property that offers remarkable opportunities for irrigation, hunting, and fishing. Situated in the highly coveted and rarely available Shell Creek drainage between Greybull and Shell, Wyoming, this ranch boasts awe-inspiring views of the magnificent Bentonite hills while being dwarfed by the grandeur of the expansive Big Horn Mountains that grace the northeast horizon.

Enhancing the allure of the property, a pristine half-mile stretch of Shell Creek meanders along the northern boundary, providing exclusive access to an excellent trout fishery that remains largely unexplored due to limited entry points on private land.

The abundance of wildlife on the ranch creates an exceptional hunting experience, with thriving populations of trophy whitetail deer, mule deer, black bear, pheasants, and turkey. The diverse topography of the land creates an optimal habitat that caters to both wildlife and livestock, offering abundant food sources and ample cover.

Water rights are secured from two distinct ditch companies, namely the Whaley Ditch (78 shares) and the McDonald Ditch (125 shares), ensuring abundant water supply for efficient irrigation throughout the growing season. Moreover, the property is blessed with numerous warm water springs that remain unfrozen even during the harsh winter months, providing a reliable source of stock water. These springs also serve as a haven for hundreds of late-season ducks.

A cozy brick home with three bedrooms and three bathrooms spans 3,820 square feet, offering a welcoming retreat after a rewarding day in the field. Additional improvements on the property include garages, shops, a walk-in cooler, lean-to structures, corrals, and sorting pens for cattle.

Shell Creek Meadows represents an extraordinary opportunity to own a genuinely versatile property that combines breathtaking landscapes, productive irrigation, exceptional hunting, and world-class fishing. It is a place to find solace and create cherished memories amidst the natural wonders of Wyoming’s rugged beauty.
