About this Ranch
Ancient Monarch Ranch is composed of 320± acres situated between Dolores and Dove Creek, Colorado, which has some of the best habitat and hunting that money can buy. With splendid mountain views in all four compass directions, this sleepy town derives its name from the wild doves inhabiting local waterways.
