Heguy Ranch – North East Nevada

$1,675,000 SOLD

Heguy Ranch location is in one of the major deer hunting areas of Nevada with deer residing in not only the high mountain areas, but also in the lower elevations. Antelope are present throughout the area and some 20 miles north is an area, which has been acquired by the Elk Foundation and has a growing population of elk. The ranch is in the area of one of the highest sage hen populations in the state of Nevada. There are a number of fishable streams within 20 miles of the property and Wildhorse Reservoir, one of the notable fisheries of the State, is an easy one-hour drive away. One little known feature of the ranch is a storage reservoir located on the private land, which the Nevada Division of Wildlife has investigated as a possible location for planting red band trout, a species native to the Bruneau River system and limited in number. The Division of Wildlife would plant the reservoir and with a license, private fishing could be continued with the request that fish capable of spawning would remain in the reservoir to later be milked for their eggs and placed in a hatchery. Therefore, this area has available almost all game common to Northern Nevada.

The elevation of the headquarters of this ranch, 6,360 feet, provides relatively cool days during the summers, with the nights usually requiring a jacket. The ranch includes Mason Mountain, with an elevation of 7,473 feet, which provides vistas unparalleled in the Great Basin Region. The ranch is accessed by 56 miles of highway from Elko and approximately 16 miles of county maintained gravel roads, a trip of approximately one and a half hours during the late Spring, Summer and early Fall. Spring and fall storms may make the last 16 miles impassible for a short period. In the winter, the gravel road is not maintained and access to the property is by snowmobile. As snowmobiling in this area has become a popular winter sport, the area now provides year-round recreation.

Within an easy driving distance there is Jarbidge, a historic mining town, Copper Mountain at an elevation of 9,800 feet, the Jarbidge Wilderness area, the headwaters of Marys River, Wildhorse Reservoir, Mountain City and the town of Tuscarora in the Independence Valley. In addition, the area has mile upon mile of 4×4 roads, with every mile showing something of interest. Northeastern Nevada has been interesting to such notables as Bing Crosby, who owned the PX Ranch, approximately 40 miles away, and James Stewart.

This is true cowboy country. Several large ranches are in the area and the smaller ranches retain the flavor of a range cattle operation with long cattle drives. The Prunty Ranch, which is about 10 miles distant, still has a large horse gather from the Diamond A Desert each Spring.

The property will support a substantial number of cattle during the grazing season of May to November. This will provide income for the property and a possible means of providing visitors with a Western Experience by helping on the cattle operation. A recent controlled bum of heavy brush on portions of the land has shown that brush eradication will increase the production of grass and other vegetation and greatly enhance the wildlife and big game carrying capacity of the area.

The relative seclusion of the area and the location of the farmstead provide a minimum of intrusion by the public and a peaceful atmosphere. The present buildings are conventional ranch buildings, all of which are functional. Areas for the construction of new lodge type residences are present with views of the meadow and stream.
