Resident and Non-resident hunters will need only a general deer license for deer hunting on the ranch.  Non-residents will need to apply for the general draw.  If hunters want to apply for a special elk permit for this area they will first need a general elk license.  Non- residents will need to apply for a general elk license through the draw.  If you draw a general elk license then you can apply for the special permit. You might want to apply for the combo elk/deer license to cover you either way.  Below are the special permit areas you will need to put in for in order to hunt on this Ranch.

Special Permit Areas
Elk Archery:  580-15         
Elk Rifle:  580-22             
Elk Cow:  580-80   

Another unique opportunity for hunting on a Big Timber ranch sits just 5 minutes away and offers 5 miles of Yellowstone river frontage.  Brush and cottonwood trees and lots of water and channels make for great water fowl and turkey hunting.  The ranch has a healthy deer population as well.  The fishing is phenomenal so bring your fly-rod!  Archery and rifle hunting is available for deer and turkey.  These combo hunts are based on the season and what licenses you hold.
