Activities & Amenities
With the backdrop of the spectacular Mission Mountains you will experience some of the best bird hunting Montana has to offer. This piece of property is truly a sportsman’s paradise and you can make this 450 acre property your own private Montana hunting retreat. 380 acres have been set aside in Conservation Easement of Wetland Reserve and almost 70 acres of the property have been deeded to allow building on it. Because this property sits below a waterfowl migration route, this is a bird hunter’s dream come true. Artesian year-round springs and creeks result in the appearance of turkeys, Sandhill Cranes, Trumpeter Swans, and literally thousands of Mallard Ducks and geese that flock to the open waters. This preserve also allows for possible food plots and alfalfa and barley have been grown here in the recent past. This makes this area perfect for fantastic wildlife viewing as well as panoramic views of scenery highlighted by the majestic Mission Mountains. This special place in The Big Sky is a place to enjoy and cherish for generations.
Recreational opportunities abound for excellent trout fishing, kayaking, and rafting as well as other year round activities on the nearby Clark Fork, Flathead, and Jocko Rivers.
