ATTENTION ARCHERY HUNTERS:The opportunity to purchase 320 acres in what has been considered the best elk hunting in Montana just came available. The property borders over 35,000 acres of BLM on two sides which allows the new owner many possibilities of finding a monster Bull. It is not uncommon to see bull's in the 350-400" range. The property has many good building sites for a cabin or hunting lodge. The Breaks are known as one of the premier elk habitats in Montana and the western U.S. Drawing a rifle permit is difficult but if successful, you may have the hunt of a lifetime!Close by is the (CMR) Charles M Russell National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge encompasses over 1.2 million acres and 1500 miles of shoreline. The "Breaks" have been known as one of the best mule deer hunting areas in the U.S. for years. Mule deer are widely distributed throughout the region but most heavily concentrated in the Missouri Breaks and adjacent prairie habitat. The deep, contorted coulees of the breaks provide superb cover, allowing some bucks to achieve trophy status. Montana, like most other western states, elk hunting has become increasingly challenging because it has 35 million acres of public land plus an additional 8 million acres of private land made available through the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (WFWP) Block Management Program. This property is enrolled in the Block Management program until the end of 2021. Owning your own recreational land has become a worth while investment, and property like this, does not come available very often. The rugged "breaks" along the Missouri contain dense stands of ponderosa pines and junipers. Elk thrive amidst this cover. The plants and soils of the region offer excellent nutrition, allowing mature bulls to grow exceptionally large antlers. Hunting these trophy bulls with a rifle requires a long-odds lottery permit, but those who do draw have the chance to take amazing animals. Archery hunting is also conducted on a "draw-only" basis, but the odds are much better. The estimated elk numbers according to Montana Fish and Game for the 410 district are around 4,400 animals. Antelope hunting on the open plains in this region is also a draw. Antelpoe average 13-15" which is common in the "breaks".Along with exceptional big-game hunting the Montana's Missouri River Country boasts robust populations of sharp-tailed and sage grouse, and gray (Hungarian) partridges. Solitude, exceptional scenery and superb quality of game make Montana's Missouri River Country a true hidden gem.
