Cottonwood Land and Cattle Ranch contains all the terrain features that sportsmen seek. From the lush meadows and riparian areas to the deep dark timbered draws, or sprawling grass flats. The terrain is as diverse as its wildlife and includes giant bull elk, mule deer, whitetail, pronghorn antelope, and a healthy population of Merriam turkeys; the recreational opportunities are unmatched.
The property has been managed over the years to improve the diversity of the terrain and quality of the habitat. Trophy species of whitetail deer, mule deer, antelope, and elk have all been harvested on the ranch. The forage and cover are thick and provide a year round sanctuary for numerous species of game and non-game species, giving the property the opportunity to raise mature animals reaching trophy quality. Many elk, deer, and antelope call this ranch home year round and are seen on a daily basis. The hunter will enjoy these features:
- Located within the famed and coveted Elk area 7
- Terrain is relatively mild compared to many ranches in Area 7 that hold elk.
- Trophy quality elk exceed 350 B&C on yearly basis and several exceed 370 B&C harvested on the ranch.
- B & C Antelope, Elk, Mule Deer and Whitetail all harvested on the ranch in the last 10 years.
Cottonwood Creek and Brush Creek run year round and not only supply’s irrigation water, but provides year-round drinking water for cattle, native wildlife and feeds a very active wetland. This wetland is a perfect spot to get away and enjoy the early duck hunting opportunities or to cast a fly after some Large Mouth Bass, giant Rainbow Trout, and Panfish
The ranch is also located within a 30-minute drive from some of the most popular fishing and boating destinations in South Eastern Wyoming. Glendo and Greyrocks Reservoirs are superb warm water fisheries providing excellent fishing for Walleye, Small Mouth, Cat-fish and Crappie. Guernsey Lake provides excellent wake boarding and water skiing in one of the most scenic and smooth watered lakes in the area.
With the three nearby lakes and mountains to the west, summer activities are endless, and only getting better every year. Recently Glendo Reservoir has taken on numerous trail building exercises which has created some of the best single track in Wyoming, encompassing nearly 60 miles of trails around the lake, making it a biking and hiking hot spot in the area.
