The Sheehy Ranch is pleased to offer DIY turkey, deer, and elk hunts. Our ranch is host to a ton of Mule Deer and a small population of Whitetail that like to hang around the Big Sandy Creek drainage.
The mule deer population is high. There are hundreds of deer on the ranch with lots of hills, coulees, small streams and brush to hunt. Most people who come out shoot a 4x4 mule deer with some getting bigger and some smaller, but very few people leave without a deer if they are here more than a day or two.
Typically our elk herd moves in during the late summer/early fall and grazes on the hay fields until the end of October.
At this time, both rifle and archery are permitted for deer; however, we will be offering archery only for our elk population.
Our ranch is located in hunting district 690 which requires you to draw a tag for that district. 690 is open for general deer hunting.
Opening week is currently blocked out, but the rest of the 2022 season is still open!
We also have a huge amount of Merriam's Turkeys on the property, which is perfect for hunters seeking an awesome spring hunt!

For residents, a general (statewide) deer tag is valid for both archery and rifle season in 690, but you have to draw a special archery tag for elk in district 690, and it is very competitive.
Montana is a draw state for out of state hunters. For deer the odds of drawing have historically been pretty high.
The application deadline for deer and elk tags is April 1st.
For Mule Deer and Whitetail, Non-Residents with two preference points have a 100% chance of drawing, and a 54% chance with no preference points. With a big-game combo, Non-Residents with two preference points have just over a 99% chance of drawing, and a 71% chance with no preference points.
- Elk - $260.00

Jon was great to work with. Very accommodating. He has a beautiful ranch and had turkeys on his ranch. Jon and his father were very pleasant and helpful.

Of all of the places in Montana that I’ve hunted the Sheehy ranch tops them all. Jon was amazing and the property was not only gorgeous but was full of game. The property was easily accessible and very hunter friendly. I went for my spring turkey hunt and was graced with a mature gobbler coming in moments after shooting light with plenty more gobbling up and down the draw. Jon was quick to respond to messages and questions about the property. If your looking for a truly one of a kind hunting experience I’d highly suggest the Sheehy ranch over anyplace else.
The Sheehy ranch is second to none! If you’re looking for an unforgettable experience on private land, book this place. Jon responds to messages quickly and efficiently and is always there if you need. The ranch is very easy to maneuver and the game is plentiful. Unmatched experience and ranch.
