The grazing permit is run in common and fenced together with the deed land. The property has historically been leased for summer grazing.

Terrain:  The diversity of the landscape includes a scenic mixture of rugged canyonlands, high mesas with amazing views and wooded hills with ponderosa pine and cedar. The high table lands have open grassland meadows edged with trees. Colorful rock outcroppings line the hills and small rimrocks extend into the canyon areas. The elevation is in the range of 4,400 feet in the south side of the ranch to 4,900 feet in the elevated plateaus on the northern portion. ATV trails run throughout the property providing access from the lower elevations to the upper table lands.

Cell Tower Lease: There is a cellphone tower lease on the ranch, which provides a monthly income. A copy of the lease will be made available to buyer's during their due diligence period.

Wildlife & Recreation: The ranch joins public lands at several locations including both State Land and BLM. Wild Turkey, and Mule Deer are frequently seen on the ranch and adjacent public lands. Other area wildlife include mountain lion, bobcat, coyote, red fox, hawks and eagles. Elk and Whitetail deer typically prefer areas to the north that are a little more remote. Recreational opportunities abound in northeastern Wyoming and the Black Hills region. Most of the major attractions in the Black Hills are within a two-hour drive of the property.
