Vida, Montana makes its home in Eastern Montana on Highway 13, 30 miles north of Circle. The present-day location of Vida began as the Presserville community, and around 1951, Ed Schillinger moved his store and the Vida Post Office to the present-day location on Highway 13. The community finally agreed to change the town name to coincide with the name registered under the Post Office. The “new” Vida was completed with the move of the last public building, the Baptist Church. Vida had the second radio station in the state! Its call letters were KGCX and was later moved to Wolf Point and then to Sidney. It is also home to Montana sportscaster Rocky Erickson.
Prime Hunting and Fishing
The property is located in McCone County just miles from the mighty Missouri River. The distinct features of this region provide deer and upland birds a sanctuary. The brush filled draws conceal big game with ravines for deer and plenty of open space for antelope to roam. Ideal habitats that provide bedding and nesting areas for pheasant, sharp-tailed grouse and Hungarian partridge draw in bird hunters. The property also lies near BLM land for even more adventuring, sight-seeing, or hunting.
The fishing is second to none. This portion of the Missouri River holds a diverse assemblage of native and non-native fish species. Anglers interested in native species can expect to catch Sauger, Channel Catfish, Shovelnose Sturgeon, Burbot, and Paddlefish. Anglers interested in nonnative species can expect to find Walleye, Northern Pike, and Rainbow Trout. This stretch of river is home to over 50 species of fish. Angling is year- round. The mighty water way carves out canyons and river breaks creating formations that are breathtaking and make fishing a pleasurable experience for all.
