Musselshell River

Location

This camp is located in the central part of the state near the small town of Martinsdale, MT and is nestled between the Little Belt, Castle, and Crazy mountain ranges. By highway, we are about 120 miles northwest of Billings, MT. Here we lease the hunting rights on private and state lands consisting of approximately 20,000 acres.

Hunting and Terrain

Hunting here is for whitetail, mule deer, antelope and elk along with waterfowl and upland birds. This is a "general license" area for elk and deer and is one of the easiest areas in the state to draw an antelope tag which makes it a great place to plan a combination hunt for those who would like the opportunity to harvest multiple species on the same hunting trip. The habitat in this part of the state consists of foothill benches, prairie grasslands, grainfields, hayfields, along with creek bottoms and river bottoms. The elevation will vary between 5000' and 6000'. 

Lodging and Meals

At this camp, guests will stay in our rustic hunting lodge, a large refurbished building that was once used by the local Hutterite Colony as a dining hall. The lodge offers our guests a spectacular view of the Little Belt and Castle Mountains. The building is solid, well insulated, and spacious. Heat is provided by propane and wood. A 12 volt system powers water pumps and lights. Because of the camp location beneath a hill, cell phone service is not available; however, excellent service is available on most of the ranch. Current sleeping quarters are bunkhouse style, with cots and foam pads provided. Hunters must bring their own sleeping bags, towels, and personal toiletries. Bring an extra pad and pillow if you wish. (We are in the planning stage of remodeling the lodge to add another bathroom and create separate bedrooms that will sleep two hunters per room.) Hearty, healthy breakfasts and suppers are served family style each day in the dining room with lunches eaten in the field if unable to return to the lodge. 

Staffing and Capacity

This camp will typically operate with 1-3 guides plus a cook and accommodate up to 6 hunters per week.
