SANTA FE -- Only one person submitted a bid for 7,206 acres of state trust land in the White’s Peak area north of Ocaté by Tuesday’s deadline.
Rancher David Stanley, one of four private landowners involved in a negotiating a complicated land swap, was the lone bidder.
The swap is aimed at reducing conflict between the public — mostly hunters and outdoor enthusiasts — and landowners in the area, which has become a checkerboard of public and private holdings.
