    This is one of my favorite properties. It's just such a special piece of ground straddling the Gallatin river, with all sorts of wildlife. Seeing it with snow on a chilly fall morning watching ducks, geese, eagles, and deer go about their business is fun - and it's so close to town it's hard not to spend all my time out there.

    We had a great hunt at the Axtell Ranch. It was the last week of the season and we were able to take a nice two-year-old muley buck. We saw some other bucks as well but weren't able to make moves on them before they crossed over onto adjacent properties. Joe & Barb were great hosts!

    Joe & Barb are great landowners to work with. The property is beautiful and we did see some ducks and got a couple. It was a very warm opening day and this property will only get better for waterfowl as the temperatures drop down. We'll be back!

    Joe and Barb’s land is truly a piece of Gallatin Valley history. The amount of wildlife and scenic views are nothing short of amazing. Pair that with both of them being wonderful hosts makes for a fantastic day. I would happily go back any day!

    Another awesome day on the river! Caught my biggest fish ever on the Gallatin, a nice 22" brown. Can't wait to hunt out here this season, deer tracks everywhere!

    This piece of property is beautiful and has a great variety of natural habitat suitable for various species. We saw bear tracks within the first 5 minutes of being on the property and lots of more sign to follow. Off to the right of the road is a stretch of private river fishing while to the left offers more open fields for game to roam. We saw two bucks on our way out and look forward to watching them grow throughout the season via game cams.

    This is a wonderful property. So close to Bozeman yet a world away. Great stretches of water, caught 15+ nice sized fish in 4 hours (wish I could've stayed longer). Joe and Barb are super helpful and friendly.

    Beautiful property with a great stretch of river. It is uncommon to have the river to yourselves and enjoy the day. Caught fish early, enjoyed a lunch out in the open and had a friendly visit with the owner. Thanks to the homeowners for deciding to share this gem, so close to town...but so far away.

    Had an amazing day of fishing on the Axtell property! A ~15 fish day with a couple 16"+ browns and a handful of good rainbows. Having a day like that with no one else on the Gallatin, 5 minutes outside of Four Corners is a pretty special experience. This will be one of my new local spots!

    This property never disappoints. Gorgeous day, minutes outside of town, and not another soul to see all day. Absolutely love visiting this ranch.

    Joe & Barbara's place is really special. Over 1mi of private river access on the Gallatin just 5mins from Four Corners provides an impossibly crowd-less experience right in town. Barbara is also a great host who's responsive and helpful. I'm looking forward to many more bookings for fishing, hunting & foraging on The Axtell's property!

    This is one of the most incredibly scenic and special properties I have ever been to, and I've been to quite a few. I booked fishing access and was floored by the view of the mountains and the river before I even wet a line. Throughout the day we saw ducks, geese, an eagle's nest, and a pair of sand hill cranes. This will be a very special property to hunt as well I think. Joe and Barbara are great hosts and while I was there was already planning to rebook during hopper season to go back and fish this summer.
