The Winecup-Gamble Ranchis located in Northeastern Nevada near the Utah border, approximately 70 miles northeast of the City of Elko, Nevada. The Ranch is comprised of approximately 250,000 acres of deeded land which is owned by Walker-Winecup Gamble, Inc. and approximately 750,000 acres owned mostly by the US Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) and some of which is privately owned. The grazing boundary encompasses an area more than four times the size of the City of Phoenix—over 1,000,000 acres.
The Property has been operated as a cattle and sheep ranch since the late 1800s. Central Pacific Railroad laid the tracks for the Transcontinental Railroad in 1869 and at one time the Property was operated by John Sparks who later became Governor of Nevada. The late actor Jimmy Stewart was also a previous owner of the Ranch.
The Nevada Department of Wildlife calculates that a herd of approximately 1,080 elk migrate through and graze upon the Property. The Ranch is also home to antelope, mule deer and upland game. The Crittenden Reservoir, located on the Ranch, is highly rated as a fishing hole for trophy-size cutthroat trout and small-mouth bass. There are over 1,000 springs and wells on the Ranch. Approximately 300 of the natural springs are geothermal “hot springs.”

Five Mountain West states are at the top of the growth rate list. Nevada has grown at more than twice the rate of number three. 21 years in a row pretty much answers the question on whether or not the growth will continue!
Elko County,with a population of more than 46,000, is located in the northeastern corner of Nevada, this is a growing area with a high quality of life. It contains the cities of Carlin, Elko, Wells, and West Wendover as well as the unincorporated towns of Jackpot, Montello, and Mountain City. The area has a very strong sense of community and the citizens enjoy a satisfying four season climate, moderate cost of living, 120 acres of public parks, quality education and health care, and strong economic growth. The City of Elko Elko is located on the Humboldt River in the west central part of Elko County. Elko is the largest urban area and center of commerce and government in northeastern and north central Nevada. In the 2005 Elko was listed in the 100 Best Small Towns in America. Elko is approximately halfway between Reno/Sparks (295 miles to the west) and Salt Lake City (237 miles eastward).Boise, Idaho is 246 miles north on State Route 223. The city encompasses a 10.6-square-mile area. Its location off I-80 makes it a natural stopping point for motorists. Few places are as rich in the past and present of the great west as Elko!
Half a dozen large mining operations produce millions of ounces of gold a year in the region, their impact has transformed the old cow town into a prosperous young city.
In the decade from 1980, when population stood at about 10,000 people to 1990, the population had almost doubled. In one hectic 12-month period beginning in July, 1986, Elko's population increased by 21 percent and in 2005 it increased by 18%!!!!! These numbers are huge and paint a crystal clear picture of what a great investment land in this area has become. This growth is spread across the city, and across many square miles of countryside to the south where Spring Creek was developed in the 1970's, but it is most evident on Elko's north end these past 5 years.
