Hunting & Fishing

Hunting & Fishing

It’s not just sport, it’s a way of life rooted in tradition. From blue-ribbon trout streams to trophy mule deer bucks, Southeast Montana is a sportsman's paradise, especially if you have the right guide. We joke about keeping our favorite hunting spots and fishing holes to ourselves, but the truth is, we love sharing our abundant resources with visitors. Here you’ll find tens of thousands of acres of wide-open public lands and waters so full of trout you’ll be more concerned with the daily catch limit than what kind of fly you’re tying on.

Note: As of July 1, 2023, a conservation license is required for everyone age 12 and older to access most state lands, including wildlife management areas, fishing access sites and wildlife habitat protection areas, and all types of recreation—launching watercraft, hiking, biking, wildlife viewing, etc. State parks are excluded from this requirement.
