It stands to reason that a region as wild as Genuine Montana would have great hunting and those sportsmen lucky enough to visit Central Montana will not soon forget it. The plains stretching east and north of Great Falls offer some of the finest antelope, deer, and upland bird hunting in the west. Elk, bighorn sheep, bear and mountain lion are all plentiful in the Rocky Mountain Front, to the west, or in the Little Belt and Big Belt ranges, to the east. The variation in local terrain makes Central Montana popular with all types of sportsmen and during portions of the season it’s possible to combine big game and upland bird into one trip.
Unlike other western hunting destinations, Central Montana’s low population density and plentitude of remote areas create the perfect environment for an epic hunt, unlike any other destination in the lower 48 states. Because of the expansiveness of the wilderness areas, guided hunts are the best way to ensure success. Local accommodations range from luxurious guest ranch cabins to base camping from a mule train. Pack the camera, the only thing more impressive than the game is the scenery.
