O'DONNELL MOUNTAIN MEADOWS - NEW LISTING
Deer Lodge, Montana
- 5,870± Deeded Acres
- Outstanding Summer Grazing & Fall Hunting
Held in the Vanisko Family since the 1960s, the 5,870± deeded acres of O’Donnell Mountain Meadows offers productive alpine pastures and expansive views of the Flint Creek Mountain Range. Conveniently located nine miles southeast of Deer Lodge, the property boundaries stretch from the foothills of the eastern Deer Lodge Valley to the mountains on the western edge of the Continental Divide. Surrounded on three sides by the Deer Lodge National Forest, this natural preserve consists of open native grasslands, timberland, rock outcroppings and multiple lush riparian threads. The higher elevations including O’Donnell Mountain which rises to 6,845 feet above sea level and an unnamed peak on the east side rising to over 7,400 feet add to the diversity of the landscape. Plentiful sources of surface water in four creeks as well as numerous springs provide consistent water sources for wildlife and livestock. Used as a calving ground for elk in the spring, the wildlife viewing and hunting opportunities are endless.
Historically utilized as a summer grazing unit for approximately 400 cow-calf pairs from mid-June through early October, O’Donnell Mountain Meadows provides outstanding summer pasture in the productive “hard grass” foothills of the Boulder Mountains. Perimeter and interior cross fencing also enhance the agricultural benefits of the Property allowing for moving cattle throughout the summer to fresh pastures. This may be one of the best summer grazing units available in the Deer Lodge Valley.
O’Donnell Mountain Meadows is being offered for sale for the first time in fifty years and is available for under $820 per deeded acre.
