Sitting at the base of the Gallinas Mountains, just four miles outside the town of Corona, New Mexico, the Gallinas Mountain Wildlife Ranch provides panoramic views in all directions.

To the south lies the Valley of Fire natural recreation area, and to the southeast lie the white peaks of Sierra Blanca and the Lincoln National Forest. Within an hours drive is the little tourist town of Capitan, home of Smokey the Bear, and just a short distance beyond is Lincoln the home of Billy the Kid and the place of the Lincoln County wars.

Ruidoso is approximately an hours drive from the ranch and is well known for skiing, horse racing, fishing, gambling, tourist shops, restaurants, and much more. Ruidoso has an excellent airport sufficient to handle light jet aircraft. Albuquerque and the international airport are approximately two hours to the northwest.

The Gallinas Mountain Wildlife Ranch consists of approximately 7,160 acres of which 6,800 are deeded. There are 240 acres of New Mexico state lease lands and 120 acres of Bureau of Land Management land located in the very northwest corner of the ranch.

The ranch has some all weather roads in place with good roads running throughout. Electricity runs into the middle of the property, and telephone is available along the country road running to the ranch. A new 36 x 60 metal shop has been added with 36 x 30 of that insulated and enclosed.

The Gallinas Mountain Wildlife Ranch is entirely fenced and is completely surrounded by other private ranches limiting outside access. The possibility for enlargement does exist.

The Gallinas Mountain Wildlife Ranch would make a good cattle ranch. The ranch has the potential to run around 300 head of yearlings. At present there are no cattle on the property and it is being managed as a wildlife and hunting ranch.

There are three wells on the property and windmills are used to pump the water for all three. The present owner intends to convert at least one of the wells to solar and also plans to add another well to help with year round water for the wildlife. The average depth of the three existing wells is between 650 and 750 feet. In addition to the wells the ranch also has six dirt tanks and several more are being added.

The Gallinas Mountain Wildlife Ranch is located in New Mexico�s Game Management Unit 38. This area has been known for quite some time for its excellent mule deer hunting, and in recent years they have also seen a good number of elk move into the area.

In addition to the states across the counter deer licenses, the Gallinas Mountain Wildlife Ranch has also received a special deer permit allowing for a hunt in late December during the rut. The potential for quality deer on the ranch is a big plus, with deer seen and harvested scoring in the mid 170�s to 180�s.

Game Management Unit 38 was opened to the public for elk hunting for the first time in 2007. One five day, regular season, rifle hunt with a limited number of tags was opened. With very little public hunting in the area the numbers of elk on the ranch are increasing annually.

The Gallinas Mountain Wildlife ranch has been receiving archery elk permits plus special rifle elk permits that have been used in late September and early October during the rut. Permits are issued annually through the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish.

Over the years we have seen 400 class bulls on the ranch, and bulls in the 370 to 390�s have been harvested.

The Gallinas Mountain Wildlife Ranch is mostly rolling hills covered with pinon pine and cedar. There are a few scattered Ponderosa pines on the ranch, and parts of the property have a fair amount of oak brush and mountain mahogany, which is excellent for wildlife habitat.

A fair number of roads on the ranch take you down into nice open valleys of grama grass, western wheat, and rice grass. There are also scattered areas of chamisa throughout the ranch, which is excellent winter feed for both wildlife and cattle.

The elevation of the ranch is about 6,200 feet. This makes summers nice with average temperatures in the 70�s and 80�s. The winters are also fairly mild with daytime temperatures averaging in the mid 30�s to mid 50�s.

The average rainfall is around 18 to 20 inches a year and winter snows are generally from two to six inches at a time and melting within a few days.

The Gallinas Mountain Wildlife Ranch is located in some of New Mexico�s richest historical and cultural lands. Within a short distance from the ranch, to the west, sits the ancient Anasazi village of Gran Guivira dating back to 800 A.D. and now a national monument.

The deep history of America�s western frontier can be revisited in nearby Lincoln and Capitan. Other places of interest in the area include White Sands National Park, the Space Hall of Fame, and of course the quaint village of Ruidoso for a night on the town.

When you stop to consider all aspects of this ranch, including the hunting and it�s potential for quality game, the easy access to the property, and the numerous attractions for family and friends, from skiing, golfing, gambling, horse racing and shopping, to site seeing, the Gallinas Mountain Wildlife Ranch is a wonderful all around ranch.

The Gallinas Mountain Wildlife Ranch is being offered for $5,676,000.00.
