Sprawling in size and bordering thousands of acres of Forest Service lands, three creeks, a small river and a pond set the spectacular scene for this ranch located between Missoula and Helena near the small town of Elliston. Easy access, the location could not be better. Fly into Missoula or Helena for a short drive to your hunting paradise. The ranch operates on a total of 7,175.524 +/- acres and has historically been part of a large ranching operation with irrigated hay meadows and seasonal grazing. This large scale Montana ranch has been thoughtfully put into a conservation easement that preserves the sprawling vastness under the Big Sky with very few restrictions. There are several building sites allowing you to taking advantage of the show stopping views in all directions of mountains, meadows, creeks and wildlife. The dramatic and varied topography and small stream riparian corridors are a haven for wildlife and is suitable for livestock. With one developed spring, Mike Renig Creek, MacDonald Creek, Telegraph Creek and Little Black Foot River there are numerous water rights and uses prolific for both wildlife and livestock. There is one pump and approximately 40 sections of wheel line irrigation. There is also opportunity for flood irrigation. Both a small stream fisherman and hunters dream, there is a variety of wildlife teeming with activity year round. The ranch has carefully managed the seasonal grazing, timber and hunting for decades and has had limited recreational use for many years.
