CENTRAL MONTANA AREA: Lewistown is in the Center of Montana surrounded by these five area mountain ranges Snowy, Judith, Moccasin, Belt, and Highwood. Cattle ranching, wheat farming and hay production still provide the primary economic base. Winnett and Petroleum County is included and surrounded by the Missouri River / Ft. Peck recreation area noted for all types of hunting and fishing recreation. Encompassing about 1,100,000 acres, the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) provides a unique opportunity to experience wild land and wildlife in a natural setting. Visitors to the NWR can experience wildlife and scenic grandeur in nearly the same surroundings as encountered by the Lewis and Clark expedition 200 years ago. Extending approximately 125 miles east/west and including the 245,000 acre Fort Peck Reservoir, the Refuge includes native prairies, forested coulees, river bottoms and badlands so often portrayed in the paintings of Charlie Russell, the colorful western artist whom the Refuge is named.

COMMENTS: This ranch is both a highly sought after recreational package and a productive agricultural component. The ranch is almost all deeded, is very private, and has tremendous water resources. There is a balanced mix of native range, miles of bottom lands with live water, and productive croplands. Management has been enhanced with the use of a professional agronomist for all phases for maximum crop production. Also, the property has a successful guiding program in place with a few select hunting clients. They are served with excellent accommodations and meals with access to over 30 square miles of privacy. In particular the wild pheasant hunting is trophy like. It is not uncommon to see hundreds of wild pheasants a day. In short the ranch is "Cream of the Crop", an unsurpassed combination of agriculture and recreation.
