Located in the Weiser Cove area approximately 12 miles east of Weiser, this 3960 + acre deeded ranch property is a separate, autonomous portion of the Skow Family’s Cove Creek Ranch, now in the 4th generation of family stewardship.  Contiguous with and offered in conjunction with the deeded lands is the private 3940 + acre Holland Gulch BLM Allotment eligible for 549 AUMs.  The deeded acreage consists of two main north/south parcels of 960 + and

3,000 + acres, respectively, separated by approximately 1&1/2 miles of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and private holdings.  The two parcels are linked by a long since abandoned county road adopted and maintained by the owners as a connecting farm road.   

Known as the “Sander’s Place, the picturesque, broken terrain north parcel has year round county road access, a mile and a quarter of Cove Creek running through, a geothermal site and stock water ponds fed by springs and early season run-off.  A set of corrals and livestock working facilities have been established on the Sanders Place. 

Referred to as the “Over the Hill Place”,  the big expanse south parcel encompasses slopes and hillsides of native pasture, gently rolling, sloping improved pasture and approximately 525 acres tillable dry-land farm ground in broad, meandering draws and upper plateaus.  Two developed solar powered stock wells are complemented by spring fed and seasonal run-off stock ponds on both the deeded and BLM lands.  Both the deeded and BLM are perimeter fenced.  Two stray 40 acre deeded parcels are outside the main north/south tracts and surrounded by the Holland Gulch BLM Grazing Allotment.   

The Skow ranch property is located in one of Idaho’s premiere upland game bird habitat areas offering excellent populations of upland game including pheasants, valley quail, Hungarian partridge and chukar partridge.  Cove Creek along with stock water ponds across the nearly 8,000 acres of deeded land and BLM allotment attract a variety of waterfowl throughout the year. The ranch lands are also home to a strong population of mule deer and the elk that move through during the season.  Because the property consists of a least 640 acres, the owner is eligible for a landowner appreciation permit for controlled big game hunts within Hunt Unit 32.

AREA OVERVIEW            

Weiser, the Washington County Seat, is the closest town to the property and accessible by county maintained paved and gravel roads.  Optimally situated at the confluence the Weiser and Snake Rivers, Weiser is a strong agricultural community complemented by a well-established and substantial business district.   With a population of approximately five thousand, Weiser’s small town atmosphere makes it a great place to live while also providing most necessary services and shopping.  Weiser Memorial Hospital, an affiliate of the St. Luke’s Health System, offers a full spectrum of healthcare services. Civic pride and community spirit are evident; this is a town that is involved and takes pride and active interest in the schools, parks and recreation programs, churches, senior center community events, institutions and programs.   Famous for the National Old Time Fiddle Festival held each year in June, Weiser is a “hallmark” town with beautiful tree lined streets and a plethora of history rich architecture.

Weiser offers a general aviation airport with a 4,000 foot runway.  Boise, Idaho’s capitol city is approximately 70 minutes east of the property via State Highway 95 and Interstate 84 and home to the state’s largest airport, which offers a full range of commercial air services.
