Taking in the upper reaches of the drainage, Dry Gulch Basin is one of Stimson's last remaining large tracts. Derived from the original Cramer Creek property which once totaled nearly 4,800 acres, Dry Gulch Basin was created with the hunter in mind. A significant amount of the property has controlled, gated access creating privacy and seclusion which the local elk and mule deer herds enjoy throughout much of the year. 3 miles of property border adjoins State land. Adjoining private ownerships to the south and east do not provide public access, even during hunting season. Expansive vistas from numerous points across the property offer great vantage points for spot-and-stock style hunting. There are numerous small streams and springs across the ownership. With plenty of cover and forage, this property is sure to attract and retain game animals with thoughtful management practices.
