The property is situated along the headwaters of Rock Creek and at the base of the Anaconda Pintler Wilderness and the Pintler Scenic Route. The ranch has 10,000 acres bordered by US Forest Service land on 3 sides. The land consumes three valleys each with a tributary of Rock Creek meandering through it's bottom. The mountain ridges between these valleys are home to hundreds of elk, as well as moose, bear, deer, wolves, mountain lions, eagles and much more. Due to large family ranches and a small rural population, this area has been virtually undiscovered by hunters and recreationalists.
This is a Montana family owned and operated ranch. It has been in the Bauer family for over 45 years and runs grass cattle year around, but as with most ranchers these days, we are looking for alternative sources of income. In doing so, we hope to share this incredible destination with you and to ensure you have a wonderful and memorable stay in the beautiful, wild, outreaches of Western Montana.
