CLIMBING ARROW RANCH
#MT814073
Gallatin, Montana
79,582.00 acres
LEGENDARY FISHING, HUNTING and LARGE-SCALE AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION
One of the most historically-significant land and cattle empires in the Rocky Mountain West, Climbing Arrow Ranch consists of approximately 79,582 acres, of which about 73,180 are deeded. CA Ranch has a long, storied history of agricultural production, with a cow herd of nearly 2,000 commercial Black Angus cattle and productive irrigated hay meadows along the famed Madison River.

Teeming with German browns, cutthroat and rainbow trout, fly fishing on the CA is legendary. The pristine trout waters of the North Fork, Middle Fork and the main channel of Sixteenmile Creek serpentine through the Francis Unit for over 17 miles, and nearly 3.5 miles of the acclaimed Madison River form the western edge of the Valley Unit, creating a private fishing experience like no other in Montana.

World-renowned elk hunting exists on the Francis Unit which is home to an elk herd of 900 to 1,500, and attracts dozens of magnum bulls scoring in the 350 to 370 class with larger bulls harvested in the 390 range.

Held in the same family for the past 62 years, ranches of this scope--with large-scale agricultural production, unrivaled big-game hunting and private fishing waters, in one of the most desirable locales in Rocky Mountains--are peerless in todays western land market.

Dome Mountain Ranch is most famous for the prolific wildlife that roams its timbered draws and open parks and the amazing trout fishery flowing past in the waters of the Yellowstone River and the private lakes within the ranch. At times, the elk herd seems everywhere as trophy bulls, calves, and cows appear from every aspen grove as the late afternoon sun creates long shadows. The trout fishing can be as good as it gets with big rainbow, brown, and cutthroat trout ready to inhale your dry fly.

The new owner may choose to discontinue the commercial aspect of the ranch and enjoy the privacy the ranch provides or continue the lodge and guest ranch endeavors. It is entirely up to the new owner and their goals and desires for the ranch.
