Historically, the Ranch has been used as a summer grazing unit (approximately 3 months) for 125 cow/calf pair with the remaining grass left for the wildlife.


The improvements on the Ranch are well maintained with a neat appearance.  This signifies the stewardship with which this Ranch has been managed.  A cozy cabin built from logs cut on the property, an outhouse, outdoor shower, and a hunting blind are fitting for the setting and provide the perfect mix of rustic, yet cozy, mountain living.


The cabin, built in 1997, consists of 864± square feet, with 2 bedrooms, and a cozy living room open to the kitchen and dining room.  One bedroom fits a queen-size bed while the second bedroom serves as a bunk room with multiple beds providing ample room for family and friends.  The covered front porch is a common place to sit and enjoy watching the wildlife feeding near the cabin.

Hunting Blind

A hunting blind positioned on the edge of “Kidney Park” provides the perfect vantage point to wait for elk to feed out into the meadow. This blind is perfect for hunters that have difficulty hiking as it is an easy walk to and from the cabin.

The Seller will convey with the Ranch 50% of whatever mineral, oil, gas, geo-thermal, hydro-carbon, and gravel rights they actually own, subject to reservations by previous owners. The Seller makes no representation as to the quantity or quality of any mineral or other sub-surface rights appurtenant to the Ranch.

The Seller hereby makes known that there may be variations between the property boundary lines and the location of the existing boundary fences on the Bighorn Mountain Bull Camp.  The Seller makes no warranties regarding the location of the fence lines in relationship to the property boundary lines, nor does the Seller make any warranties or representations regarding the specific acreage within the fenced property lines.

The area economy is driven by agriculture, tourism, and energy development.  However, through the boom and bust of energy development, agriculture has remained the backbone of the local economy.  Tourism remains a viable economic factor as Buffalo is located at the intersection of Interstate 90 and Interstate 25 and is a logical stopping point for visitors heading to Yellowstone National Park.  As a result, Buffalo has excellent hotel amenities and restaurants.
The nearby Bighorn National Forest and Cloud Peak Wilderness provide endless sightseeing, hiking, camping, horseback riding, hunting, and fishing opportunities.  Wildflowers, rushing creeks, beautiful, rugged terrain, and good wildlife populations make the Buffalo area a prime destination to view the wonders of nature.
The Ranch is home to an abundance of wildlife including trophy elk, whitetail deer, mule deer, antelope, moose, bear, mountain lion, coyote, and bobcat.  One of the unique characteristics of the Ranch is its location amongst larger ranches, which makes it extremely private and quiet, and enjoys a large buffer from the public and its pressures.
Aside from the hunting and wildlife viewing opportunities, the Ranch provides the perfect terrain for ATV, hiking, and quiet mountain living.
