Elk Ridge Ranch is an extremely private mountain ranch with exceptional wildlife resources, incredible panoramic views, excellent summer grazing and close proximity to all of the amenities in Bozeman, Livingston and Yellowstone National Park. There are three resident herds of elk that utilize the Ranch, providing unparalleled elk hunting for big bulls during both archery and rifle seasons.  The Ranch encompasses 13,414± deeded acres that are a mix of native pasture, riparian bottoms and timbered slopes.  The Ranch includes 1,600 State of Montana acres and 320± acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for 1,920 leased acres making a 15,334± total acre Ranch. 
 
Under steady and very capable ownership for the last 50 years, this is the first time this ground has been on the market since the early 1970s.  As a testament to the extraordinary elk hunting, the same local outfitter has leased the Ranch continuously for the last several decades.  With the exception of the fencing, stock water network and a cow camp, Elk Ridge Ranch is unimproved and offers an exceptional blank canvas for the next fortunate owner.  There are several premier building locations that offer unparalleled privacy and panoramic views of the Crazy, Bridger and Absaroka Beartooth mountain ranges.  
 
The Ranch has historically been utilized as a summer grazing unit. The pastures on this low-overhead ranch operation have all been professionally managed, and the grass is in exceptional condition and ready for livestock.  The Sellers would be interested in leasing back the pasture should the new Buyer be interested in generating some annual income.  There is also potential for a conservation easement on the Ranch should the next owner be interested.
