It is one of the least populated counties in Oregon. Yet now Wheeler County is home to one of the most impressive transactions of 2014: the $26.5M sale of Six Shooter Ranch.
At 36,000+ deeded acres, Six Shooter’s terrain varies widely from deep river canyons edged in rimrock to high slopes covered in pine and fir.
“This property offers that rare mix of material timber/agriculture resources coupled with extraordinary recreation value,” says Broker Jeff Hubbard of Mirr Ranch Group, which had the listing. “This sale underscores how Central and Eastern Oregon remain a relatively yet-to-be-discovered ranch market with tremendous long-term upside potential.”
Hubbard and co-broker Pat Lancaster describe the buyer as “a seasoned bow hunter with very specific needs.” After touring several other ranches in New Mexico and Colorado, the buyer fell for Six Shooter’s charms, which include trophy elk hunting and fishing on any one of 60-plus lakes and streams.
