The Canyon Ranch at Pryor Gap is a rare property tucked in at the base of the remote and sacred Pryor Mountains in Big Horn County, Montana. The Canyon Ranch at Pryor Gap offers a turnkey opportunity for a working cattle ranch which has historically run up to 700 pair. Mountain foothill pastures and open fields make up this pristine cowboy’s dream setting. Improvements include a well-functioning high volume capable four rail guardrail with metal post corrals and sorting pens, a large calving barn, shop, and many silos for grain storage. One main house and a bunkhouse make up the living areas on the ranch. The Canyon Ranch at Pryor Gap sits on the mountain portion of the Crow Reservation, with the headwaters of Pryor Creek running through the property seasonally. The mountain portion of the ranch consists of limestone cliffs and evergreen forests which consist of Ponderosa pine, Mountain Mahogany, Limber pine, Juniper (up to 500 years old), and Riparian Cottonwood, among many more. Lower grassland and farming portions of the ranch have year-round water running via Lost Creek drainage, an important source of water for cattle and other wildlife that frequent the area. Stock tanks, which are fed off wells from the mountain section of the property, are strategically placed for thirsty cattle without worrying about unnecessary weight loss from the animals.

Wheatfields are abundant within the ranch leases and make up a wonderful second income for the would-be buyer. This beautiful setting screams the “Old West” and checks all the boxes for a startup ranch.
