The Government Springs Ranch captures the imagination- ponderosa pines, quaking aspen, and spruce trees cast long shadows over 60-70% of the ranch. Herds of elk, deer, turkey, bear, and mountain lion roam the understory while the snowcapped peaks of the San Juan mountains tower above the horizon. The ranch is a superb hunting property with six miles of national forest frontage, an abundance of trophy-quality game, and readily available tags. Unlike almost any other hunting/cattle ranch, Government Springs has year-round, paved road access, borders a Greg Norman Golf Corse, has full buried utilities, and is within minutes of a regional airport. Fly into Montrose, have dinner at Elk Mountain Resort (the neighbor to the north), hunt elk in the morning, and maintain a 3-o'clock tee time.
