    Hear What LandTrust Hunters in Montana Have To Say

    The Sheehy Ranch is absolutely beautiful. The scenery exceeded my expectations, and the ranch is full of game. I was able to harvest my largest Mule Deer to date, and my dad was able to harvest a nice whitetail buck as well! Jon went above and beyond to accommodate us, and make us feel at home!

    From the first gobble we heard on the first morning to golden hour on the last evening overlooking the Gallatin Valley, we were wowed by the property. I could not have asked for a better spot to learn the ropes! I'd highly recommend the property to anyone looking to shed hunt or hike! Wildlife is abundant on the property.

    Our recent trip to the ranch was awesome. Shane was super helpful in showing us around and looking at maps. The cabin was great, and 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.

    GMU 312

    Being a general elk unit located just North of Bozeman makes this unit extremely convenient for folks flying in to Bozeman or even driving along I-90. However with that convenience, comes increased pressure at the limited access points of the Bridger Range. Private land or accessing public land through rivate land can be a big help here. Expect diverse terrain with some steep slopes and timber once you're out of the valley.
