Fay Ranches proudly presents the Little Belt Elk Ranch, where recreation becomes a lifestyle. Bordering national forest service land, it provides a sense of seclusion that is difficult to find and coveted by many. The ranch headquarters consists of a rustic, two-bedroom, two-bath log home with an incredible view of Eagle Creek, grassy meadows, and timbered ridges. This historic and stunning ranch is situated in the Little Belt Mountain Range and offers a nearly incomparable spectrum of wildlife habitats to attract game. The combination of grassy meadows, large basins, spring seeps, aspen groves, and mature timber provides shelter, food, and sanctuary for a plethora of species. Eagle and Sheep Creeks flow through portions of the property, which provide endless fishing adventures for the avid angler. When you drive across this massive landscape, you see pronghorn antelope, numerous elk, and healthy mule and whitetail deer populations. When autumn turns the aspen groves into colorful splashes of color against the emerald green of grasslands and forests, the views are unequaled. This property offers approximately 6,210± deeded acres with an additional 7,540± acres of leased ground. Comprised of green basins, creeks, timbered ridges, meadows, and endless vistas, it is extremely rare for a ranch of this size with this combination of topography to come on the market. This land can sustain three to four hundred cow-calf pairs and boasts approximately 300± acres of hay ground. In addition, it has 910± acres of senior water rights and substantial stock water rights.
For those interested in operating a working cattle ranch, the property is set up to accommodate a large-scale enterprise. It is fenced and cross-fenced for an intensive grazing program. There are 11,000 feet of underground pipe that gravity feeds multiple watering troughs. The forest service allotments are adjacent and contiguous to the ranch. For those uninterested in working the land, the new owner has the option to lease out the agricultural or hunting rights while enjoying all manner of outdoor activities, such as horseback riding, fishing, hiking, wildlife watching, and hunting.
