Otter Creek Ranch

Powder River County, Montana

The Otter Creek ranch consists of 4,658+- deeded, 1,880+- BLM, and 1,380+- State acres in Powder River County, Montana.  An additional 4,961+/- deeded and 4,796+/- BLM acres are available in a long term private lease and are contiguous.  All together that assembles over 17,500 acres of grass and timber.  The Ranch has an ideal location, the old Hope homestead, for constructing a new set of headquarters where there is electricity, well waters, and a driveway to county road access.

The well managed block of prime livestock grazing has extensive stock water pipeline serving multiple stocktanks and holds numerous stock water reservoirs.  The escarpment of the Powder River Breaks provides ideal habitat for elk, mule deer, and pronghorn. Positioned on the divide ( 3,800 to 4,200 feet)  between the Tongue and Powder Rivers, the area is known to average 14-18 inches of precipitation per year which produces strong sod and excellent forage.  Solid grass management has resulted in feed that can only be seen to believe, schedule a showing by visting powerslandbrokerage.com today.

There are two BLM grazing allotments.  The Hope Allotment that runs with the Otter Creek Ranch and the Fence Creek Allotment that runs with the private lease ground which in total are 1,030 AUM's.  Both BLM allotments allow grazing throughout the year. There are two Montana State grazing leases that run with the Otter Creek Ranch that are rated for 281 AUM's. Otter Creek holds what has historically been dryland hay meadows and the terraine provides good cover for wintering livestock.   

Located in Powder River County, Montana along the Wyoming state line, it is halfway between Broadus, Montana and Sheridan, Wyoming.   The diverse topography and remote nature of the Otter Creek makes it ideal habitat for a diverse population of wildlife. Thick pockets of Ponderosa Pine along the ridges and sage covered hills provide excellent cover. Gentle valleys and deep canyons also provide protection and iconic hunting terrain.  The rolling grass meadows provides excellent food plots. Large elk in the 375” and 384” class were taken by bow and rifle in 2017 and another 385 inch bull was taken in 2018.  Mule deer in excess of 180”, pronghorn, turkey, and black bear add to the incredible value of the property.
