Flat Willow Creek runs year-round and meanders throughout the ranch for about 2.5 miles. We see a lot of wildlife flock to this creek bottom, especially the whitetail. Up above, we have roughly 1,000 acres of scattered bull pine timber that provides great coverage. The rest is rolling grasslands with a bit of sagebrush. A lot of the grazing land is native grass, however we have introduced some western wheatgrass.
Our land is loaded with pheasant and antelope. Everywhere you look, you’ll see pheasant. Likewise, previous hunters have been extremely successful with antelope on the land, they are pretty hard to miss! We see plenty of whitetail, mule deer and the occasional elk as well. Other birds include upland, grouse, Hungarian Partridge, Sage Hens and Eagles. We see a lot of birds out here!
The land is easily accessible with good roads going across the private land to get to the BLM land. Otherwise, you’re welcome to walk anywhere on the property. There are quite a few fences and gates, although they are very easy to open. We have tree stands and blinds up for deer and elk and we can easily help retrieve harvest if hunters wish for assistance.
We have plenty of space to park a camper/RV or pitch a tent. There is electricity at the house and we are happy to accommodate to make sure your experience is as enjoyable as possible. The nearest town of Roundup, MT is just 25 miles to the south with plenty of lodging and other amenities. There is no minimum or maximum number of days when booking, however we would like to cap hunters to groups of 3-4 for safety reasons.
We are happy to open access to our property for recreation and trust that visitors will be respectful of the land and leave it as they found it.
Looking forward to hosting you out at Kimmel Ranch!
