Wyatt Ranches - Morapos Creek Division - Located along the northwest edge of the Flat Tops, this outstanding wildlife property shares 5 miles of boundary with the White River National Forest. Known for its excellent big game hunting, this diverse 2,784+/- acre ranch also features two trout streams, ponds, privacy, scenery and a hunting lodge. The ranch has excellent wildlife habitat, with multiple drainages featuring a mix of aspens, dark timber, oaks, serviceberry, sage, grass and significant water resources. With elevations ranging from 7,300 to over 8,800 feet, the ranch is located within the prime summer range and migration corridors of world's largest herd of elk. Historically light hunting on the property has resulted in a wildlife sanctuary with resident populations of elk, mule deer and black bear. During autumn, changing weather and increasing activity from public hunters in the surrounding national forest pushes even more animals onto the ranch. Morapos Creek and Deer Creek flow out of the forest and through the ranch for a combined distance of approximately 4.5+/- miles. The beaver ponds on Morapos Creek are home to sizable cutthroat trout. A functional 5-bedroom hunting lodge with additional guide lodging is sited overlooking the creek with views of the mountain landscape. The property is located less than an hour from either Meeker or Craig, and less than 90 minutes from the Yampa Valley Regional Airport.
