Mesa Verde Ranch offers excellent hunting opportunities for deer, elk, turkey, and bear from the beginning of archery season through the last rifle season. There is an excellent mix of cover, meadows, topography, and water sources, which makes this property the perfect sanctuary for wildlife. Located in Game Management Unit 73, which is renowned for big elk and mule deer, the ranch qualifies for the LPP (landowner preference program) for mule deer vouchers, it has several OTC (over-the-counter) options for elk licenses too. Mesa Verde Ranch is the one of the best mule deer hunting properties in the state. Every year as fall and winter sets in it pushes these giant monarchs out of the national park right through the property. The ranch consists of mountainous land that spans from the valley floor and climbs up to nearly bordering Mesa Verde National Park. The massive landscape blocks public access to 4,700± more acres of public hunting, where only two other ranches can access it. Mesa Verde National Park grows giants with over 53,000 acres of no hunting pressure, which has the perfect habitat to grow those monster muleys. Unit 73 is a mecca for giant elk and Mule Deer, with the agriculture and high-country ground being the hub for growing those giant antlers. With easy access to Cortez for all its amenities, Mesa Verde Ranch checks all the boxes.
