Before being converted to a hunting preserve, Montana Wild was a cattle ranch. Cows and horses roamed the ranch for years. The main ranch house was built in the early 1920’s and was originally the Haymon schoolhouse. This property has been passed down int the Burke family for years. All buildings have been restored into charming, historic buildings that each serve a specific purpose. Like the butcher shack designated for cleaning your birds, which is climate controlled. We are keeping the old ranch style look, but adding modern twists.
Located just 16 miles from Bozeman, we offer a variety of terrain to hunt on, fit to your personal requests. We have been open for 3 years as a shooting preserve. During the summer is the best time for clay target shooting on our newly built cedar deck. With stunning views, shooting off the deck over a pond serves a non-forgettable experience. Target shooting is open year-round, along with shooting lessons. Of course, when hunting season arrives, pheasants are flying like changing colors. During the course of winter, typically the location doesn’t get much snow. When it does snow, the roads are always plowed. Always come with layers as the weather can change in an instant (but typically it doesn’t). Our employees are always trying to suite your wishes, and make your experience personable. Our goals are to always make your experience enjoyable, thrilling and worthwhile.
What the biggest concern with new members, is the wind. Our location is set in between the hills where wind barely blows here. And during the summer, you’ll be thankful for the breeze. During the wet seasons, there are field checks daily, so members know the conditions of the ranch before coming out. Soon, webcams will be built for people to see for themselves the conditions.
