Hughes Mountain Ranch

Whether you're searching for adventure or simply need a little peace and quiet, the Hughes Mountain Ranch is a perfect fit. The Little Belt Mountains of Judith Basin County bear witness to over 100 years of ranching by the Hughes family, and we strive to preserve the flavor, landscapes, and lore of the West while sharing it through environmentally conscious vacations.

Set Your Sights on a Memorable Bow or Rifle Hunting Excursion:

The Hughes' private property encompasses 11,000+ acres in the Little Belt Mountains providing the solitude most sportsmen desire. Whether you want the week to yourself or wish to bring five companions, the ranch will be entirely yours for six days. The Hughes property is located in hunting districts 448 and 420 and borders 3.5 miles of the Judith River Wildlife Management Area and 4.5 miles of the Lewis and Clark National Forest. Hughes Mountain Ranch is home to a Rocky Mountain Elk, Mule Deer, Whitetail Deer, Antelope, & several species of game birds. An elk count conducted in 2006 by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks reported a total of 1200 head in these two districts.

From Nature Trails to History Tales:

We will supply the wide open spaces - you will need to bring your spirit of adventure! The Hughes Mountain Ranch offers a range of opportunities for its guests to enjoy the outdoors including varmint hunting, hiking, biking, fishing, elk horn hunting and bird and wildlife watching. And to learn about some history of Russell Country, The CM Russell Auto Tour will guide you through the landscape that inspired Russell's paintings, including areas located on Hughes property.
