If you are looking for a great hunting recreational property in Western New Mexico, look no further than Pie Town Ponderosa Outfitters Ranch. The Pie Town Ponderosa Outfitters Ranch (640 deed acres) is in New Mexico Trophy area Unit 15 and is situated at the base of the Little Aleges Mountain. Year round access is great off the local county road. The ranch has 2 buildings for lodging, the main home, 3 bedrooms-2 full baths and is approx 1450 sq ft. The Bunk House 960 sq ft is divided into 2 sides (snores and non snores) and each side has a common shower and wood stove. The bunk house can sleep upwards of 10 individuals.
As for hunting, the Pie Town Ponderosa Outfitters Ranch now has 2 elk tags-one bull and one either sex tag. The Ranch also offers excellent Mule Deer hunting as well. Turkey, Javelina, Black Bear, Coyotes and Bobcats are known to roam thru the property.
A short hike from the Main lodge, one will enter a large grassy meadow surrounded by Ponderosa and Pinion pines. I counted over 15 different elk rubs from last rut season alone. If some water could be pumped up to the meadow from the main lodge and create a few wallows or even a small pond, this property would be Elk and Deer heaven.
Over the years I kept hearing stories of big Bull elk would reside up on the Big and the Little Alegres Mountain which is partly on the ranch. Last summer I headed up the mountain for 2 reasons, I wanted to find the property markers and I wanted to see if the rumors of the huge elk were true. I got up about a third way up the hill and I was finding elk droppings everywhere. Small Ponderosa Pines were knocked down for elk rubs. Then I saw some movement, 5 large bull elk bolt down the ridge in front of me. I never did find the property marker on the Little Alegres Mountain that day, but I sure validated the truth of big elk on the Little Alegras.
The PieTown Ponderosa Outfitters Ranch was once a outfitters ranch, where hunters would stay and head out into the woods to hunt unit 15. The current owner has retired. This property would make a great family getaway, a hunting lodge or a corporate retreat.
