McKamey West Ranch is a family-operated ranch located in the heart of Montana. What started as the Colby Sheep company in the late 1800s has since been passed down to generations of McKameys. You will witness the pride in land stewardship from generation to generation as you walk the abundant grasslands or fish the native stream. Wildlife abounds as great care has been taken to keep the habitat healthy and thriving.

New to McKamey West is "From Our Pasture to Your Plate". We now offer all-natural, grass-fed beef and lamb to our customers, family, and friends. There is no shortage of meat and our animals are raised on good feed and prepared for our customers' satisfaction. You can buy them by the whole, half, or quarter.

If you're looking to stay on the ranch during your visit, please take a peek at our Sheep Herder’s Camp Wagon with access to fishing in the reservoir or our Airbnb: Little House in the Big Country

Property Visited

This property would be excellent for both big game and upland bird hunters. I heard stories of successful hunts throughout the year, plus also saw several groups of antelope and deer, while we toured the property. The grasslands are well known for their populations of sharpies and huns. Per my conversations with Merrill, it sounds like the pheasant population isn't as strong as its been in years past.

    From start to finish this hunt was made extremely effortless thanks to Merrill and his wife. The section of ranch I hunted was everything I hoped it would be and then some. Healthy abundance of wildlife, eagles, deer, turkeys, antelope. I saw it all. I was fortunate enough to harvest a beautiful mature Tom within a few hours of arriving. I’ll definitely be back.

    Though the creek was running high and off color due to a recent rain storm, I was able to land some nice browns on a streamer. I look forward to getting back once the water flows settle down. Having this wonderful resource near my cabin is awesome!!

    I had great day on Merrill's ranch. Peggy, my GSP, found 7 coveys of birds and several singles. The scenery is worth the admission! Merrill was a great host and it is obvious they work very hard to maintain the beauty of their ranch.

    This is a fifth generation cattle and sheep operation managed with care for the land and wildlife. Jeanne and Merrill took time out of ranch work to show us the best places on this large ranch to find Huns and Sharptail. We saw no pheasants or prairie chickens but had no expectations of their presence. As always with Huns and Sharptail there is plenty of walking and a big running pointing dog that will hold a covey hundred yards out is a big advantage. The grass is high and dense this year and the sharptail were holding tight. We had some really good hunts. Tried to think of a down side or suggestion for the owners but could not come up with even one! We will be back!
