Situated in the heart of the rugged Pine Ridge area of northwest Nebraska lays a vast and unspoiled big game hunting property. The ever changing and highly diverse landscape that can be found throughout the property aids in supporting ideal habit conditions for the numerous big game animals that thrive on this majestic piece of land. From the deep canyon rims saturated with beautiful stands of native ponderosa pine to the wide open rolling meadows that provide excellent grazing for both wildlife and cattle, the dynamic scenery will keep you eager to explore more. Trails from decades past conveniently dissect the property and take you over the ridges and down through the thick timber and dense shrubs where the deer and elk roam. This property offers excellent numbers of trophy class elk, whitetail, mule deer and good numbers of Merriam turkey which can be easily seen displaying their vibrant colors in the canyons throughout the year.
The high quality grasses have greatly increased the carrying capacity of the property, making it more beneficial to both livestock and wildlife. The vacant farmhouse and outbuildings are complete with electricity and water and would provide the ideal location for setting up a base camp or cabin for extended stays. Adjacent to the farmstead lays productive tillable land and alfalfa ground for additional sources of income. Along with hunting, you can go hiking, ATV riding, horseback riding and camping. Multi-use properties of this caliber that contain trophy class elk, tremendous whitetail and mule deer hunting, along with excellent income potential is a luxury. Here is a unique opportunity to own a piece of property tucked away in the scenic Pine Ridge country of western Nebraska, with excellent grassland and premier hunting characteristics.
