The Three Rivers Rod & Gun Club River parcel is located in Three Forks, Montana and lies along the west bank of the Madison River in the lower Madison Valley, which is the least developed river valley within 30± miles of Bozeman. The ranch varies from thick cottonwood galleries along the river corridor to sub-irrigated meadows with meandering creeks. The river braids offer abundant wetland habitat which attracts a wealth of waterfowl and other wildlife. The views are equally diverse and dramatic with the Bridgers to the east and the Spanish Peaks and the Tobacco Root Mountains to the south and southwest.

Because of all the fabulous water amenities and lack of development, wildlife thrives in the lower Madison Valley. For the waterfowl hunter, there is an abundance of opportunity. The Madison River and all its side channels support local varieties of nesting waterfowl. As northern migratory birds arrive and the Madison River freezes in late fall, ducks and geese search for open water which concentrates their numbers on the slough located on the ranch along with other bits of open spring water in the valley. Whitetail deer tend to congregate along the cottonwood lined river bottoms during the day and head into the valley in the afternoons to feed on the irrigated fields and native grasses.

Upland bird populations are strong on the ranch due to the agricultural operations in the area and the efforts the current owners are putting into the food plots. The current owners also hold a pheasant preserve license located on the ranch. From big game to waterfowl to upland birds and near year-round fishing, the ranch is a true sportsman’s paradise.
