The property is loaded with wildlife, with big game record setters, prairie birds, and all the fishing you can handle. Monster Rocky Mountain elk have been harvested in the native country, and the ranch has put five trophies in the Pope and Young record books over the last twelve years. Approximately 1500 acres of the ranch is under an 8' high game fence and holds a private elk herd of about 150 head. These elk act as live decoys to attract and hold wild elk at the ranch.
Strong numbers of deer will be found here as well, with a mix of roughly 65% mule deer and 35% whitetail. Pronghorn antelope roam the plains too. The diverse bird hunting provides additional sport, with turkey, some wild Hungarian partridges, pheasant, and Canadian geese. The ranch's different terrains, such as open grass prairies, brushy bottoms, and wooded pine forests, coupled with the abundant natural water, creates excellent habitats for a variety of species of wildlife.
On a bluff overlooking the river sits three double-story homes, which work as ranch cabins for yourself and guests. One of the owners currently lives in one of the houses right now, and they are all well-maintained. A couple of barns and a garage/shop are located at the headquarters too.
There is a long flat location on the ranch, where a 3250' runaway could potentially be built. The ranch is full of scenery and elevation change, allowing for multiple sites to build a lodge, if desired.
The property is very hilly, with flat valleys and some bluffs along the river. Elevation changes vary between 2800' and 3400'. In the distance, beautiful snowcapped peaks emerge above the horizon from the following ranges: Bear Paw, Judith, Snowy, Little Belt, Highwood, and Moccasin Mountains.
Approximately 25% of the ranch is heavily wooded, with fir and pine. The balance of the ranch has good grasses and scattered brush and trees. The ranch is rated (with the state and BLM leases) to run approximately 300 cow/calf pairs.
The owner owns both mineral and water rights. There is not any production on the ranch, but some in the nearby vicinity. All water rights owned will be conveyed at closing; minerals are negotiable with price.
