I headed down to the Double Drake Ranch on the Ruby River this past weekend with good friends Chip Roehrig and Doug Child to do some fishing. The weather was perfect and the fish cooperative. We had a great time on one of the prettiest stretches of trout water in Montana.

Last Wednesday, Cody Bill Boyce, the oldest child and only daughter of Bill & Kim Boyce, won a blue ribbon at the Central Montana Fair for her market pig, Yoda, who weighs in at an impressive 258 lbs. Not bad for a pig. For market evaluation the pig is evaluated on Leanness, Growth, Volume & Structural Soundness. As a Freshman in the prestigious Fergus FFA youth program, Cody purchases, prepares, and sells her pig as part of her SAE project which will continue throughout her high school years requiring her to keep a budget and a running account of her project.
Autumn’s arrival brings the elk bugling and Fall colors to the Chimney Rock Ranch for sale in Montana. It is a great time to visit a ranch of this caliber, with huge views and beautiful scenery. Wildlife is abundant on the Chimney Rock Ranch, and the cooler weather should get them moving and easier to spot. This is a high-end ranch that offers days of equestrian trail exploration, high mountain views and privacy in one encompassing estate.
Lee Kinsey, Owner and Outfitter of Secluded Water, championed the ranch, saying, “This fishery remains one of my very favorites to wet a line in. The setting is secluded and gorgeous.”

The Pro Bull Riding (PBR) tour made its annual stop last week in Big Sky, Montana and Fay Ranches was one of the primary sponsors. Proceeds from the event support programs and activities of the Yellowstone Club Community Foundation and the Big Sky Community Corporation.
The afternoon started with a Fay Ranches cocktail party at the Summit Hotel where we reunited with friends and clients, some whom we hadn’t seen in a couple years. It was great to see everyone and visit a bit before the PBR event began. Then we headed down the hill to the Big Sky Town Center where a temporary venue had been built for the occasion. It was like seeing the Rolling Stones in a small bar—these are the same cowboys that ride in Madison Square Garden and Las Vegas.
The first two quarters of 2012 have been the strongest in the history of Fay Ranches, Inc. We surpassed $100m gross sales from 25 transactions on July 12th, the earliest we’ve ever passed this milestone.
What does this mean? We’re not entirely sure, but I am going to attempt to answer that question.
The past four years have been tough, but things seem to be improving. We’ve been hesitant to speak openly about how well we are doing because of how fragile the domestic and international landscape is. We’re having a hard time trusting what appears to be the beginning of a recovery. But the signs are there. Barring any cataclysmic events, such as the European Union imploding , we believe we’re in the initial stage of a recovery in the ranch real estate market. The highest quality ranches, priced competitively, are selling. We have also seen a few multiple offer situations for the first time in years.
