Private Locations Where You Can Pay to Hunt in Montana
Technology has good sides and bad sides but when it connects people looking for a place to have some outdoor activities with people who'd like to make their land available in exchange for a fee, that seems like a total win to me. If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, check out the website for LandTrust, which describes itself as "the recreation access network." They're headquartered in Montana, but they also have locations in Kansas and Nebraska.
Though properties listed on LandTrust are available for activities like bird watching, fishing and ranch tours, the focus of this article is on where you can hunt in Montana. Here are some places that are popular according to LandTrust:
Old McIntire Farms East - Three Forks
According to their page, the farm is located 49 miles outside Helena and 40 miles outside of Bozeman, with amenities in town as well. As to why this might be the location for you, "this is a great option for hunters in Unit 390 with the extreme pressure on public lands. As snow moves in and the animals come down to the valleys large game is prevalent." Packages available allow you to hunt with firearms or with archery equipment, there's even a package that lets you hunt coyotes or other predators for a price starting at just $50.
Farver Farms Expeditions - Scobey
Located way up in northeast Montana, their page doesn't shy away from the fact that the land is in a remote location, in fact that can be part of the appeal. Hunting packages for deer, waterfowl, birds and varmints.
