- The Dakota Ranch is within Area 7 for elk hunting, which is considered the premier area in the state for trophy bull elk. Records reflect bulls in excess of 400 points in the area. Given the trophy quality of the unit, it is difficult to draw a tag. However, the State currently issues two landowner licenses to the owners for elk and mule deer, offering a truly rare and unique hunting opportunity.
- The ranch and surrounding area have impressive bulls and bucks due to the quality of the forage that enhances antler growth.
- The river and creek corridors good forbs production provides ideal habitat for turkeys, and berry producing shrubs draw in bear. In addition, sage chickens, and various other species of game birds have been seen on the property.
- The Laramie River meanders through the property for approximately one mile and there are an additional two miles of the river upstream on the adjoining BLM land. This river is a relatively undiscovered fishery producing some of the best fishing in the region with plenty of brook, brown and rainbow trout.
- The adjoining BLM land and the river within it provide the owner of the ranch direct and private access to additional fishing and hunting on public lands. Stream enhancements could be developed throughout the stretch of the river ensuring ideal habitat for fish.
- The ranch and nearby area provides endless recreational opportunities.
- There are incredible views of the plains to the east and Laramie Peak and the surrounding mountains to the west.
