The grazing ground has been left untouched by domestic livestock for years, leaving the pasture and timbered lands abundant with wildlife.

Fishery ResourcesThe Yellowstone River proves excellent fishing opportunities. Glendive is world renown for its paddle fishing, where each spring anglers travel from far and wide to try their luck at snagging a Paddlefish. This pre-historic fish can exceed 100 lbs. Other fish that are sought after in the river here are walleye, sauger, channel catfish, and northern pike to name a few.
Recreational ConsiderationsEastern Montana is home to a large population of white tail deer, and this property has a large resident herd that is getting stronger every year. You can hunt them in the fall and pick their sheds in the spring. The farm is capable of harboring bucks up to and beyond 170”, with 140”-150” bucks seen annually. The region has also produced some 190” white tail in years past. Each spring and fall you can also pursue the staggering population of turkeys that call this place home. When the Cottonwood and Ash trees begin to show the years end, and turn their deep reds and yellows, it’s time to get out the dogs and unveil the un-believable pheasant hunting on the property.
