The 13,700+/- acre Crockett Ranch lies in a contiguous block of almost entirely deeded land and sits nearly midway between the Big Horn Mountains and the Black Hills. During the winter and spring, one can see the snowcapped peaks of the Big Horns 90 miles to the west. The ranch begins about 10 miles north of Recluse and runs northerly for 7 miles along the county road towards the Montana border. The bulk of the ranch lies to the east of the county road with the lower meadows and several smaller pastures to the west. There are three drainages on the property. Although seasonal, these creeks can provide months of stock water and, in the spring and fall, attract migrating geese and ducks. Both sets of ranch improvements lie in the main Bitter Creek Valley near where two forks come together. The 1,200+/- acres of meadows are split between the Bitter Creek Valley and the upland pastures to the north. They are seeded to a dryland alfalfa/grass mix which attracts elk, mule deer, whitetail deer and pronghorn antelope. Most of the water on the ranch is provided by wells and spring fed stock tanks. There are 17 cross-fenced pastures which are positioned to allow easy livestock rotation. The ranch annually runs between 400 and 450 pairs in a cow-calf operation. The improvements include two very comfortable and well-maintained homes with views of the valley meadows and the timbered foothills that form the Bitter Creek Valley. There is also a small cabin to accommodate hunters. The operating improvements include a new steel three-stall equestrian barn, two steel equipment sheds, a large cow barn, and three sets of corrals with tubs and alleys. To summarize, all of the necessary pastures, water, and improvement infrastructure are in place for a profitable cattle operation. AND it should not go unmentioned that the Crockett Ranch offers some of the finest big game hunting in the state for mule deer, elk, upland birds, and antelope.The Facts:~ Location: 10 miles north of Recluse 50 miles north of Gillette.~ Acreage: 13,700+/- (12,800+/- Deeded - Balance BLM and State).~ Acreage Breakdown: 1,200+/- acres of dryland meadows and the balance is open and timbered grazing land.` Improvements: Two comfortable ranch homes and a hunters cabin, excellent corrals and scales in multiple locations as well as top-quality steel cattle barn, Morton built shop and equestrian barn, excellent interior roads.~ Wildlife and Recreation: Outstanding big game hunting for deer, elk and antelope - also upland birds.~ Summary: Well balanced 500 AU ranch with nice meadows, both open and timbered range, good water, complete and comfortable improvements and excellent big game hunting.
