Water & Crops

 Little Dog Creek winds its way northeast across the ranch for approximately 1.4 miles. The creek has a strong flow in the spring, which slows down by July. There are five reservoirs scattered across the property, with two of them located on Little Dog Creek. Water for the home and outbuildings is supplied by a well with good supply. Another well, situated in the middle of the ranch, has historically provided water for livestock. 

 

The ranch features a rolling landscape primarily composed of native range, natural riparian areas, and planted shelterbelts. Approximately 315 acres of farmland are interspersed throughout the property. Currently, 240 acres are used in a crop-fallow rotation, growing small grains each year. Additionally, 50 acres are dedicated to hay production, and 25 acres are set aside as food plots for upland birds.   

Wildlife

The ranch boasts a rich and diverse ecosystem, providing a habitat for a variety of wildlife. Upland birds, including sharp-tailed grouse, hungarian partridge, and pheasant, thrive in this environment. The creek running through the ranch is an exceptional for waterfowl, serving as a nesting ground and a vital resource. Larger game such as white-tailed deer, mule deer, antelope, and the occasional elk are frequent visitors. Additionally, the ranch is home to dozens of other non-game species, creating a vibrant and balanced natural community.
