Diamond C Ranch sits in the heart of Unit 35, a premier mule deer and elk hunting unit. The property is nearly surrounded by BLM ground including a 17,286 lease. The mix of high grasses and forest-edge meadows make the Diamond C Ranch a prime ranch for mule deer hunting. Large elk herds can also be found just on the outskirts of the property on the encompassing BLM ground.
Mule Deer Hunting at Its Best
The mule deer hunting in this region has produced more Boone and Crockett entries for mule deer than any other unit in the country! As Mirr Ranch Group broker and hunting outfitter Trey Milhoan puts it, “it is essentially the crown jewel for big mule deer bucks” with 200”+ deer harvested regularly. Diamond C in particular is great for rifle hunting because it is where the wintering/ruttering grounds for the mule deer migration that travels from the Flat Tops and Castle Peak to the Colorado River drainage.
Landowner Tags at Diamond C Ranch
Landowner tags are available throughout unit 35 through the “Landowner Preference Program.” These tags are very valuable in the region and would be an additional revenue stream for any future landowner.
Trophy Elk Hunting
The ranch has also harvested trophy bulls but they are harder to spot. Historically, Unit 35 produces large numbers of elk and the occasional “trophy” but has lately seen less. In recent years, the Vail and Roaring Fork Valleys have experienced an 80% decline in elk numbers.
So Much To Offer
In addition to great hunting, Diamond C Ranch offers proximity to Vail, renovated four bedroom home, cattle operation potential, newly constructed cutting horse arena, unobstructed views of the Flat Tops, and two pivots!
Where else can you find incredible hunting opportunities without skimping out on all of the above!
