LOCATION: This unique property is located eight and a half (8 1/2) miles northwest of Dupuyer, Montana and approximately thirty 30 miles northwest of Choteau, Montana. Great Falls is eighty-five (85) miles to the southeast of the property and home to an International Airport.
Situated on the majestic Rocky Mountain Front where Montana's simply refer to this part of the state as "The Front." The northern boundary of the Eastern Front begins at the south end of Glacier Park and stretches south for 110 miles to the Dearborn River. The Front is a grand sweep of jagged limestone peaks, walls, reefs and deeply cut canyons.
The front itself is a diverse wilderness range with an intrinsic value of unequaled wildness, but much of its mystique comes from what lies on either side. The western horizon is filled by the 2.5 million acres of the Bob Marshall and Great Bear Wilderness, of which The Front is an integral part. Immediately east of the Front stretches a virtually undeveloped expanse of foothills and prairie in private, State and Bureau of Land Management ownership. This makes Montana's share of the Rocky Mountain Front the last, largest unspoiled meeting of mountains and plains between Canada and Mexico.
The Bob Marshall Wilderness is considered the nation's premier wilderness area. Designated the nation's first wilderness area, it contains 1 million acres. Later, Congress added the Scapegoat and Great Bear Wilderness area, totaling 1.5 million-acre complex. Big in size, grandeur and legend, "The Bob" is home to almost every big-game species in North America. Go to www.savethefront.org/index.php for more information on the "The Bob."
The Lewis and Clark National Forest Service Boundary is 10 air miles to the west. For more information on the Lewis and Clark National Forest Service go to their web site at www.fs.usda.gov/lcnf/
CONSERVATION: Situated along the east slope of the Rocky Mountain Front and outside of the National Forest Service boundary are several different conservation organizations that have acquired large blocks of land to preserve the land, culture, wildlife and rare plants. West of Choteau is the Nature Conservancy's 18,000 acre Pine Butte Swamp Preserve.
The State of Montana has three large blocks of state land along "The Front" used for Wildlife Management Areas to provide refuges for thousands of elk and deer to winter on and for public use and recreation. They are as follows:
Sun River Game Range 20,000 acres
Blackleaf Wildlife Management Area 10,000 acres
Ear Mountain Wildlife Management Area 3,000 acres
The State of Montana's, Blackleaf Wildlife Management Area is the closest and lies 14 miles south of the subject property.
The Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Ranch founded by the Boone and Crockett Club owns a 6000 acre ranch that is 7 miles south of the subject property that blocks up with the Lewis and Clark National Forest Service boundary. The mission of the ranch is research, teaching, and demonstration of integrated livestock/wildlife conservation that is integral to the economic viability of private and adjacent public lands. The ranch is enrolled in Montana's Block Management Program to offer public hunting opportunities.
