Lazy XY Ranch

$6,500,000 Decker, MT 906± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

The Lazy XY Ranch consists of 906± deeded acres and just under 2.5 miles of a tailwater trout fishery. In addition to controlling both sides of the Tongue River, there is a productive agricultural operation providing rich irrigated fields that draw in trophy quality deer and some of Montana’s best waterfowl hunting. The wild upland game bird populations are very stable and strong. This combines nicely with a bird release license the property maintains that allows for an extended upland hunting season. The 162± acres of sprinkler irrigated fields draw their water through pumps from the river. There is the option of pumping from seven Coal-Bed Methane (CBM) wells converted for water application and agricultural use. The water from these CBM wells is potable and is a significant asset to the ranch and can be converted for other uses. The property’s major improvements include one four-bay shop built in the early 2000s and two Macken bridges capable of handling vehicle weights as large as a semi and pup trailers. There are multiple homesites throughout the Lazy XY that offer amazing views. From the bluffs, for example, one overlooks the Tongue River Reservoir. It is possible to walk directly down to the reservoir and, during boating season, have a temporary dock for boating uses. The main draw to this property is the rare market offering of so many recreational opportunities packed into just 906± acres.
