Activities & Amenities
Here is a chance to own one of the best recreational properties in Montana. Wild Mountain Ranch consists of 746 deeded acres and has more water features than most ranches in the area.
Springs flow freely from more than two drainages, feeding off of the Yellowstone Valley and creating good water and rich habitat throughout the ranch. These springs flow down the hillside and converge to fill a one-acre pond. The overflow runs down a couple hundred yards and fills another pond by the camping site, from there, it continues down to the barns and pools up again at the caretaker's house.
The irrigation rights date back to 1899 and allow you to flood irrigate nearly 43 acres. The fields could be turned over and put into grain or alfalfa for excellent game habitat.
In the earlier days, the ranch was a shooting preserve and evidence of that still remains. The natural habitat allows for phenomenal bird hunting, excellent deer hunting, and with the right management practices, will draw more of the area's resident elk herd in. The elk already use the upper pond during the summer to keep cool and find the ranch as a safe haven during the hunting season. Billman creek offers excellent native cutthroat and brook trout fishing. There are several ponds on the ranch that will provide hours of recreation and fishing. The current owners are in the process of permitting the ponds for native trout. When completed the Wild Mountain Ranch will be a sportsman paradise.
Wild Mountain Ranch is located just 7 miles west of Livingston off of Interstate 90 and only 20 miles from Bozeman, Montana. Livingston is a growing, vibrant town with many new shops and restaurants. Livingston is the gateway to Paradise Valley which leads to Yellowstone National Park.
The ranch offers so many locations to build your home, lodge, or guest cabins, the possibilities are too many to count. Incredible weather, scenic views, untouched valleys, and hilltops teaming with wildlife; what more could you ask for.
