Comprised of 7,690± deeded acres, F Double D Ranch is located just outside Manhattan, Montana, and a short 20± minute drive from the vibrant university town of Bozeman, Montana. Bozeman’s commercial airport is a convenient 10± minutes from the ranch. This is one of the most scenic and prolific sporting ranches in the Northern Rockies. For anglers, the Gallatin River is a quality fishery with a good population of wild trout, providing a peaceful experience with few boaters on this stretch of water. The ranch also has three spring creeks that are waiting for the new owner to enhance so they can realize their full value as productive, private spring creek fisheries. There are also two beautiful spring-fed trout ponds with huge rainbow trout ready to challenge kids of all ages. For hunters, the ranch provides a tremendous opportunity to pursue the bull elk of your dreams as well as antelope, whitetail, and mule deer. The waterfowl hunting is incredible. With a massive wetland complex and spring water throughout, the ranch provides open water for ducks and geese in even the coldest months. On many days in the fall and winter, there are thousands of ducks utilizing the ranch. For the upland bird enthusiast, there are several coveys of Hungarian Partridge and a good population of pheasants on the ranch. For those who enjoy a morning ride astride their favorite horse, a mountain bike ride, or a fun hike with friends and family, there are several wonderful trails that will take you throughout the ranch.
An evening on the F Double D Ranch is like no other. It’s a time and place where, if you tread lightly, you can watch hundreds of elk descend from the horseshoe hills and cross the Gallatin River to feed. Or see whitetail deer grazing on the hayfields and expansive grasslands, or the sun’s last rays dance on the river as it glides beneath the shadows of the towering cottonwoods. It’s a place where you can watch a brown trout lazily rise to sip a mayfly from the surface of one of the three private spring creeks. This ranch is special, a peaceful refuge for fish and wildlife, and a place where families gather to make memories.
