Even seasoned hunters will be impressed with the Montana ranches combination of trophy elk (many 350″+) mule deer, whitetail deer, grouse, turkey, and pheasants, all of which thrive here year-round. Add in over five miles of fishery potential on Elk Creek, and this property qualifies as a Montana recreational ranch of exceptional quality.
Operated for generations as a Montana cattle ranch, Elk Creek Ranch is well-equipped on the business end as well, including a large shop/barn, fencing, corrals, and alfalfa fields along Elk Creek, all of which can support several hundred pair of cattle. A large home serves as the ranch headquarters, but many sites would be suitable for constructing a classic mountain lodge here.
