Nestled at the base of the beautiful South Moccasin Mountains, Big Spring Sporting Ranch is a very scenic world-class recreational ranch. The land along Big Spring Creek is closely held and cherished to the extent that it is rarely offered on the market. Not only does the property boast both sides of Big Spring Creek for .6± miles there is an additional .2± miles of one side for a total of .8± miles, Cottonwood Creek flows from the southern to the northern boundary for approximately .75 miles providing two fisheries within the 475± acres of the ranch. Big Spring Creek is one of the best blue-ribbon trout fishing streams in Montana and supports one of the most prolific populations of wild rainbow and brown trout in the state.

Central Montana is known for its upland bird hunting and the current owners of this property have made great efforts to create and enhance wildlife habitat that supports not only a strong population of pheasants, sharptail and Hungarian partridge, but also outstanding deer hunting opportunities on their lush hay bottoms. Coyote Creek also fingers off of Cottonwood Creek on the southern side of the property and, although it is not a fishery, it does run cold clear spring water all year around benefiting both the wildlife and trout of the ranch. The Big and Little Snowy Mountains are to the south and hold some of the most beautiful scenery in all of Montana with the Judith Basin spreading out to the north, west and east like a huge landscape mural, this area has so much to offer and Big Spring Sporting Ranch is right in the heart of it all.
