Branif Scott and Greg Fay spent some time up on Dome Mountain Ranch in Montana today, spotting elk and catching big brown trout. It was a warm October day with beautiful aspen leaves and a fresh layer of snow on the peaks. This is a wonderful time to be in Montana.

Wow! Here we are, mid-October already, and that means elk are bugling. The weather is changing, we are getting rain, and there’s frost in the mornings. Everyone’s running around gathering their fire wood, filling their freezers with wild game before winter sets in and singing jingle bells! Here on Eastern Oregon hunting properties, folks are really enjoying the great outdoors and hunting opportunities that are readily available. Deer season just ended and looks successful, with quite a few locals getting some nice bucks. Elk season promises the chance to bag some really big elk this year.
Greg Fay and Branif Scott of Fay Ranches, along with a couple friends and their sons, had a wonderful father/son opening day duck hunt last weekend up on Greg’s ranch on the Ruby. There were plenty of ducks and father/son bonding to be had by all. In between flights the kids shot the decoys with their bb guns for some quality downtime entertainment. It was a classic Montana setting with beautiful scenery, good friends, family and of course, plenty of ducks.

As a Ranch Sales Associate at Fay Ranches, I had the great opportunity to represent the buyer of Quaid’s Paradise Valley Ranch (also referred to as “Camp Warren Oates”). The ranch is a 418± acre recreational ranch with a luxury home and multiple cabins surrounded by live water and stunning mountain views. Located near the north entrance to Yellowstone National Park in the Paradise Valley, this Montana ranch is a historic property.

Well, the days are getting shorter and temps are beginning to drop here in Eastern Oregon. We are entering Fall, and this means the start of hunting season in the mountain country of eastern Oregon. Archers start this weekend and have high expectations. With hundreds of thousands of acres of public land, the promise of trophy elk and deer is certain. One of our greatest features in the high desert and mountainous terrain of Eastern Oregon is the opportunity for big game hunting.
