Hunting

Sandoval Ranch lies in Colorado GMU 140, which is known as one of the best trophy big game units in the state. Elk, mule deer, bear, pronghorn, mountain lion, turkeys, and the occasional whitetail deer inhibit the ranch. This is simply an outstanding mule deer hunting ranch. Many 180”+ Boone and Crockett bucks have been harvested here over the years. The deer habitat is ideal, with lots of rougher mesas and buttes, plenty of pinon/cedar/ponderosa country along with pockets of irrigated meadows.

There are also some great antelope bucks on this property. While the elk come and go on the property, bears and turkeys are abundant.

The ranch is registered with Colorado Parks & Wildlife for the Landowner Preference Program for mule deer and pronghorn, which enables the landowner to apply for and receive transferable vouchers. Licenses for other big game species are also readily available.
