Description

The Bighorn River Farm is located 12 miles south of Hardin, Montana, and is within an easy one-hour drive from Billings, Montanas largest city. Consisting of 172 acres, including 82 acres of irrigable farm ground, the property offers excellent sporting amenities in an end-of-the-road setting. Utilized by the current owners as private hunting/fishing retreat, the property features approximately one-half mile of frontage on the Bighorn River - arguably one of the finest tailwater trout fisheries in the world. Additionally, the property contains a large waterfowl pond, as well as a century-old remodeled farm house that serves as the perfect base of operations for a hunting camp. A private boat ramp adds to the convenience of using jet boats to navigate up and down the river. The river riparian area transitions into a wetlands complex around the pond, providing good cover habitat for both pheasants and Sharptail grouse, which are prevalent on the acreage. Due to the tailwater nature of the river, the Bighorn remains essentially ice-free in winter. This feature combined with the fact that the surrounding country consists of scattered farms growing small grains, sugar beets and corn, creates a major draw for waterfowl. The duck and goose hunting on the Bighorn is some of the finest that can be found anywhere. The opportunity to acquire deeded acreage is this locale is extremely rare, as the majority of land in this area is tribal-owned. For the avid upland wingshooter, waterfowler and fly fisherman looking for a smaller, low-maintentance property that offers diverse and high-caliber sporting attributes, the Bighorn River Farm merits serious consideration.
