The Meandering Flows River Ranch, bisected by the famed North Fork of the Musselshell River, is an exceptionally rare offering encompassing all that one is looking for in a recreational/working ranch. Straddling the ranch for a little less than 2± miles, the North Fork of the Musselshell River provides an extremely private fishing experience on a very private stretch, as well as excellent water rights to run an extremely efficient cow/calf and hay operation. Located approximately 5 miles west of Martinsdale, Montana, nestled between the Crazies, Castles and Little Belt Mountains and with nearby National Forest access for some of the best elk hunting and recreational land in the state, this ranch has it all. The ranch not only offers an excellent private fishery, but also exceptional upland bird, waterfowl and deer hunting. The diverse 608± acre property is also contiguous with two state land sections, and currently runs 110 cow/calf pairs year round. The acreage consists of many willows and cottonwood trees lining the banks of the North Fork of the Musselshell River, providing for excellent trout habitat. The ranch also boasts 200± irrigated acres, producing 3± tons of hay per acre along with excellent dry land farming on the surrounding hillsides. The improvements include a beautiful remodeled 3 bedroom, 3 bath ranch house, a upscale, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom guest cabin, a handcrafted log horse barn, multiple sheds for storage, an old homestead structure, and an impressive 15,000± SF clear span barn. Additional fishing, hunting and snowmobiling opportunities are within minutes from the property in the National Forest. Located .5± hours from a private airport and 2± hours from four commercial airports, this is an excellent property for a recreational minded buyer who enjoys the solace of private fishing complimented with very productive ground.
