These Montana properties are two of the West’s most iconic ranches and known for their ranching heritage.
With the Fall colors in full awakening and the crisp air giving notice to the rising winter season, we set out on horseback to follow our brace of pointing dogs with huns and sharptails our main focus and the opportunity for pheasant a distinct possibility.
Along with exemplary cattle operations these Montana ranches offer magnificent vistas and remarkable wildlife diversity.
The IX boasts populations of elk, mule deer, whitetail deer, antelope, mountain lion and five species of upland birds.
It is experiences such as these that embodies our desire to live in the West.
