Big Game Hunting
The Hughes’ private property encompasses acreage in the Little Belt Mountains providing the solitude sportsmen desire.

For nature enthusiasts, we can provide recommendations for fishing holes, areas for bird and wildlife watching, and small game hunting.
Our creeks and ponds offer enjoyment to the fisherman, whether expert or novice. Catch brook trout from your hook and lure on Sage Creek and Running Wolf Creek and cutthroat trout from your fly on our stocked ponds.
The Little Belt Mountains are a popular destination for bird lovers. There are nearly 150 bluebird boxes and 142 bird species within the intermediate area. Activity of the bluebirds is monitored in the spring (laying of eggs, hatching, fledging) and this information is reported to the Mountain Bluebird Trails, Inc.
There is abundant opportunity for varmint hunting including ground squirrel and woodchuck hunts. Bird hunting abounds in central Montana with several species of fowl including Hungarian partridge, grouse, and pheasant.
