Property and Current Operation:
The ranch consists of 1,439± total acres, which includes 629± deeded acres, 640± acres of State Lease and a 170± acre BLM Grazing Permit. The leases and deeded land are adjacent to each other and are fenced in together. There are approximately 175 acres of tillable land, which is currently in alfalfa-grass hay. The ranch has historically been utilized for summer grazing and haying.
On a high ridge on the western portion of the ranch there is a cow camp with a water well, electricity, mobile home hookup, and a 42’ x 70’ pole building that is used for a shop and equipment storage for haying equipment. A set of working corrals with loading chute and trailer alley is also located at the cow camp. There are a variety of cabin sites available through the ranch with southern exposure and sweeping views of the surrounding countryside.
An electric well is located at the corrals and also provides water for the mobile home hookup. There are five reservoirs dispersed through the deeded land. An intermittent creek runs through Wallace Draw on the west side of the ranch. Elkhorn Creek runs through the State Lease land and there is also a reservoir.
The property has a rugged and picturesque landscape offering awesome views and privacy. A high plateau runs from the middle of the ranch to the northeast side. From the plateau there are panoramic views of the Black Hills and across the hay meadows enough space is available for a grass landing strip. The high meadows lead to secluded draws and timbered hills with pine, cedar and bur oak trees. Several draws run in varying directions across the property including Wallace Draw on the western side of the property.
Wildlife & Recreation:
With the combination of the hay fields, ample browse, good cover and live water, the ranch has excellent wildlife habitat. Both Mule Deer and Whitetail Deer, along with Merriam Turkey frequent the property. In recent years the owners have limited the hunting on the ranch. The ranch is a 30-minute drive from Black Hills National Forest lands in the Bear Lodge Mountains. Other nearby recreational destinations include the Devils Tower Golf Club at Hulett, Devils Tower National Monument, and Keyhole State Park.
Access & Location:
The property is accessed via a private road, with the south side being about three miles from New Haven Road, which is a county maintained gravel road. It’s approximately 19 miles northwest of Hulett and 29 miles from Devils Tower.
The seclusion combined with incredible scenery, far-reaching views, productive fields and great wildlife habitat make this an outstanding Black Hills ranch offering. Wallace Draw presents all of the characteristics necessary for a prime recreational holding, hunting camp or private retreat.
