Welcome to Deep Creek Wildlife Sanctuary, boasting over three miles of Deep Creek teeming with trout, 968± deeded acres, and contiguous public land. The Missouri River, one of the many world-famous trout streams in southwest Montana, is right down the road, as well as Canyon Ferry Reservoir. The property is unique because several acreage types can be found within its boundaries. The most significant portion of the ranch comprises irrigated hay meadows with a sizeable riparian area and a mature Cottonwood forest along Deep Creek. The property includes five pivots and native pastures and is contiguous to 472± acres of State land to the west. The ranch is a solid agricultural operation with excellent facilities, ample cover, and a hay base. Five pivots provide irrigation to 400± acres. Another 24± acres of hay ground under wheel lines round out the sprinkler irrigated property. Crops grown on the ranch include barley, oats, timothy hay, and grass alfalfa hay, all producing high yields annually. The remainder of the ranch is not harvested to allow plenty of feed for wildlife and cattle in the winter. The property is protected by an existing conservation easement with Montana Land Reliance. A mix of forested canyons, rolling hills of native grass, and riparian creek bottom provide a mix of terrain and vegetation suitable for a remarkable variety of wildlife, including moose, elk, mule deer and white-tailed deer, antelope, upland game birds, and waterfowl. This property features a historic home built in 1900. The 2,016± square foot home has three bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. Outbuildings include a barn, grain bins, a shed, corrals, and a granary. About an hour from Bozeman and just a few minutes from Townsend, land this size rarely comes to market. With some of the country’s most breathtaking scenery, this property enjoys views of the Big Belt Mountains in an unspoiled area that has remained unchanged for generations.
