Sheep Creek Ranch is a newly aquired property that borders the Cascade Ranch. This will be the primary place we take our rifle elk hunters. It is a rugged portion of the Big Belt Mountians that is a big bull hideout after the September rut. We primarily access the interior of this ranch by hiking and riding horses. This ranch is best suited for those in good physical condition. The property is large. It consists of deep canyons with heavily timbered ridges and open grassy hillsides. Classic elk habitat. In addition to the elk hunting we do there, we also pursue bear and mountain lion.
The Cascade Ranch is located at the northern most portion of the Big Belt Mountains near the town of Cascade, Montana. I have managed the hunting on this ranch for 14 years. It is an absolute wildlife mecca. We hunt elk, mule deer, whitetail, antelope, black bear and Mountain Lion on this property. We have taken our largest bull elk on this place. It also produces some very good bucks for us each year. I take a limited amount of hunters here, just one group at a time, up to four people. The hunters are always amazed at the quality and diversity of the game.
Brian Stephens of Decatur Texas killed this big Cascade Ranch bull in 2009. It scored 370 P&Y.
