About this property

Book a nightly stay during the non-hunting season, or book a week-long hunt during hunting season.

Elk Creek runs right through the middle of this 3,000-acre property, located in central Montana. The Creek attracts all species, but is particularly enticing for elk during and after breeding season. Both north and south ridges feature gently rolling hills and are timbered with ponderosa pine. The property is in close proximity of sizeable state and federal land holdings, which promotes a diverse population of wildlife including whitetail, mule deer, antelope, and turkey. The property also has a couple of resident turkey flocks, a few pheasants, and some sharptail grouse. The cabin used by guests is on the site of the original 1880's homestead and earliest inhabitants of Elk Creek.

The property is a rustic, remote, working cattle ranch. The cattle will occupy the ranch from June to November. The family that grazes their cattle frequent the ranch to check on cattle and perform routine cattle care activities.

Hunting:

Our 2022 pricing is a package deal for $3,000 per week archery and rifle hunting seasons for up to 4 sportsmen. We offer $175 nightly stays during the Antlerless Elk Extended Season and $175 nightly for Elk & Deer Antler Hunting. An alternative option is $125 per night during the non-hunting season for alternative recreation activities. Check out our package offerings, if you want something different contact us.

Both the hunting season package deal and the non-hunting season nightly rate allow our guests to access the entire deeded and connected state and federal land for your preferred recreational activity. 

We encourage non-hunting season guests to take advantage of wonderful hiking opportunities, mountain biking, wildlife viewing, and photography. We encourage our hunting season guests to hunt for the game of their choice that presents itself on the ranch.

We look forward to hosting you!

Cabin Description
The cabin is well insulated, so it hold both cold and heat well. All beds have new mattresses with a protector and comforter. The loft has two single beds and one queen bed...pillows are available for use, but bring your own if you have a favorite one. The main floor has a living room, dining area, kitchen, and a bedroom with a queen bed. The electric stove top and microwave, along with an outdoor gas fired bbq will fulfill all your cooking needs...no oven. You will not have the luxury of running water, so plan to bring your own drinking water. We do have a water container with about three gallons of water for washing hands and dishes, so bringing bulk water would be greatly beneficial to bring.

    Shane was a great guy and an awesome host. He was very helpful pointing us in the right direction and giving recommendations for our Turkey hunt. We saw tons of wildlife on the property!

    Taylor and his hunting buddy are certainly welcome to come back to Elk Creek Adventures. They came in prior to a day long drizzle that made the main access road and the more remote 2-track roads very muddy and slick. They refrained from driving on the roads, thus helping Elk Creek Adventures preserve the quality of the roads — much appreciated. They walked everywhere! We like conscientious guests …these two young men are welcome back anytime.

    Shane’s property at the edge of the Snowys is an incredible piece of land. We spent a day shed hunting and found several sheds. Shane was great to work with. Although we didn’t stay the night, the lodges looked comfy and warm. Check this place out!

    Our recent trip to the ranch was awesome. Shane was super helpful showing us around and looking at maps. The cabin was great, my daughter and I had a lot of fun. I would recommend this place to anyone. Top notch. Saw a bunch of antelope. Thanks again for a great trip. Hope to do it again sometime. Matt&Jena

    Matthew and his daughter, Jenna, we’re both a delight to meet. They were very respectful of my request to drive only on 2-track roads. They also did some hiking, despite the bitter cold. They can come back anytime we have availability!

    Melissa and her hunting party are amazing! She is an excellent communicator. The other two members of her party are just as amazing as herself. I will add that LandTrust’s “Landowner Success Manager” was a member of her party, which attests to the quality of people she brings to our property.

    This place is beautiful in the winter, with the snow on the ground. The cabin is nicely tucked in the valley off the road. Saw lots of elk. The cabin easily sleeps 6 and is rustic and quaint. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a hot meal. I would recommend this place for hunting or just enjoying the outdoors. Can’t wait to go back. Paul

    This was a very enjoyable hunt. Shane (the landowner) spent several hours on our arrival day driving us around to show the property boundaries, drivable roads, recommended hunting spots, etc. This was unexpected and very useful. Elk appeared to be scarce during our hunt. We found lots of old sign but little fresh sign. One of the two hunters jumped a single elk in thick cover, and the second hunter heard a group of cows talking but did not catch up with them. We saw a nice flock of turkeys and several whitetail and mule deer. We plan to hunt here again.

I really like bow hunting for elk on the Lazy K R Bar Ranch, which is why Elk Creek Adventures exists. I grew up on the ranch and I now take care of the property for my Dad. This is a working cattle ranch in the summer for grazing a little over 200 head of cattle. The elk mating season draws a lot of bull elk during bow season. Just seeing the elk and hearing the bulls talk to each other and to hear the bulls fighting is exciting enough in itself. We have adjoining access to state and federal land that lend themselves to good big game hunting also. I have three younger sisters and all four of us are involved in Elk Creek Adventures. The cabin that my Dad built on the old homestead site is magnificent. The cabin does not have running water, yet...
