Sublette Ranch Conserved

November 30, 2012 State of Wyoming, Sublette County No Comments
Ranch Home Place

One of Sublette County’s oldest working ranches will now be conserved for future generations due to a conservation easement sold to the Wyoming Land Trust.  Last week, the Miller family entered the Circle Ranch Home Place parcel into a conservation easement with the Land Trust. The easement is on 1,963 acres of working ranchland which is prime elk, moose, mule deer, pronghorn and sage grouse habitat. The ranch is located just outside of Big Piney, Wyoming.  The family had previously donated a 387-acre easement near ‘The Rim’ in Sublette County in 2007. They say they plan to take proceeds from the Circle Ranch Home Place easement to purchase additional property on the 3 Bar Ranch along the New Fork and Green River, with the hopes of completing a third conservation easement on the land there in the near future.

But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
