Located in the north central mountains of New Mexico, near the historic towns of Elizabethtown, Red River, Eagle Nest and Taos.  The ranch borders the Bobcat Ranch on the north, the Philmont Scout Ranch on the other side of the ridge to the east and has NM Highway 38 frontage along the west boundary.  The property is located approximately 4 miles north of the resort town of Eagle Nest and just across the highway from the “Old West” mining community of Elizabethtown.

The East Robert Mutz Ranch has considerable timber resources.  The second-growth stand is approximately 10” diameter at breast height with more than adequate regeneration in the understory. Forest products would include vigas and latias for decorative home construction, commercial harvesting of firewood, and the sale of Christmas trees.

The best and current use of the property is the promotion and enhancement of wildlife habitat for elk and deer to provide the opportunity for trophy big game hunting. Other wildlife seen on the ranch include black bear, mountain lion, bobcat, coyote, grouse and turkey.

Allocating by acreage, it is estimated the East Robert Mutz Ranch accrues 79 landowner elk permits; 25 either sex, 46 antlerless and 8 either sex bow.

The East Robert Mutz Ranch is also a working ranch and has excellent pastures for summer livestock grazing.

This property has tremendous potential for a variety of recreational uses and/or commercial ventures. Commercial hunting, snowmobiling and ATV tours, campfire “cookouts”, hiking, cross country skiing, horseback riding and pack trips on the ranch or into nearby wilderness to enjoy the scenic beauty and wildlife are some of the attractions that draw visitors to the area.
