    Description

    Vast, fertile grass covers the open prairie sprawling limitless and then converging with the towering Rocky Mountain Front. Like a scene in one of Charlie Russell's paintings, the hardy grazing ground provides a robust platform for an impressive western cattle operation and a fantasy land of brilliant wildflowers, placid reservoirs, alpine creeks, rolling prairie and unique mountain formations. The sun peers up over the horizon from the east and to the west are noted limestone landforms including the Sawtooth Mountain and the Sun River Canyon. The Pishkun Ranch consists of 7,699 boundless acres with some in CRP to serve up additional income. To further enhance grazing rotations, 867.33 acres are state leased, and 273 acres are BLM leased.The property borders several sections of state, BLM, and BOR land that allows for additional acreage for adventuring and recreating on. The Pishkun Ranch is located southwest of Choteau and approximately 17 miles northwest of Augusta. A well-maintained public airstrip is situated on the northeast side of Choteau. Communication for this facility is available through Salt Lake City. Furthermore, the property is just over an hour from the nearest international airport in Great Falls, MT that offers direct flights all over the US. Access to this area is unrestricted and convenient from potentially anywhere! On the northern portion of parcel 3, Quigley Spring, according to legend, flows at an astounding 500 gallons per minute and can be utilized for flood irrigation on the meadows for hay. Natural springs flow throughout the property, and there is piping to some water tanks and wells making the cattle's task of finding water easy and stress-free. The property has the basic infrastructure for a fully functional and successful ranch operation including perimeter fencing and cross-fencing, gates, cattle guards, corrals, chutes and more. The facilities are in good working condition. The area can sustain or summer graze upwards of 500+ cow/calf pairs. Watch the calves gain weight daily as they are enriched with the incomparable nutrient-dense native grasses that flourish along the lush riparian zones. The acreage is a mixture of benches and slopes all with sweeping views of the Rocky Mountain Front looming in the distance with its breathtaking formations and diverse ecosystems. Hunting and fishing in the area are a few added benefits as a result of the ideal habitats. The tradition of ranching runs thick in Montana. With some of the most stunning scenic displays in the northwest, wouldn't you like to navigate this land of sovereignty, roam free and join the ranks of the resilient rancher that has contributed to the agricultural industry of mighty Montana? This featured ranch continues to illustrate a remarkable state of open range as a result of the current owner's outstanding stewardship of the Montana prairie. Cattle Montana's economy is bolstered by agriculture. Annually, agriculture contributes more than 2.4 billion dollars to the state. Of that colossal number, livestock contributes almost half. The wide-open plains and grazing land of Montana supports 2.6 million beef cattle and 18,000 dairy cows. To put that into perspective, that is ultimately 3 head of cattle for each human in the state! It's no wonder that Montana is ranked 6th for the total number of beef cattle and is considered the world's hub for seedstock, registered cattle used for breeding. In addition to beef and milk, cattle also provide important by-products such as leather, soap, cosmetics, and buttons. The cow-calf operation is popular among ranchers where a herd of cattle is kept for breeding and producing calves. Because of a cow's digestive system encompassing four stomachs, they can digest plant material and thus thrive on grasses and other vegetation. Pishkun Reservoir Consisting of 1,550 surface area, this off stream storage reservoir was formed by eight earth fill dikes ranging in heights from 12 to 50 feet and spanning a length of 9,050 feet. Take advantage of the 13 miles of shoreline to engage in superb game fishing for Kokanee Salmon, Northern Pike, Yellow Perch and Rainbow Trout. The reservoir is located in a scenic area that is easily accessed with camping and a picnic shelter. The Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks stock the reservoir annually with trout. Clemons Coulee and Sun River On the southern portion of Parcel 1, Clemons Coulee can be found. The coulee collects surface water and lies near the Sun River. The Sun River is one of Montana's most scenic rivers. The river begins in the mountains at the confluence of the North and South fork of the Sun River on the eastern edge of the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex. The river winds through Sun River Canyon and passes through two dams, Gibson Dam and the Sun River Dam. This isolated and wild river provides pleasant fishing away from other heavily fished rivers in the state. It provides great trout fishing and Mountain Whitefish. This property allows access for several private fishing escapes! Sun River Canyon The Sun River Canyon is a recreational canyon full of rugged natural beauty. The same giant slabs of shifting and faulting rock created the canyon. Two dams, Gibson and Sun River, lie within miles of each other and create impressive white waters between them. The refreshing spray from the glacial waters mist the songbirds and the cottonwoods. The resounding sound of crashing horns of bighorn sheep colliding designate this area where each November sheep rams from one of the largest herds in the country gather to demonstrate their prowess and power. This area also offers hiking, camping, picnicking and wildlife viewing. Pull outs serve as an opportunity to scan the meadows and hillsides for herds of elk and deer in the winter. As the heart of the chinook belt, the meadows here display some of the earliest wildflower blooms east of the Rockies. Complimented by radiant flowers of yellows, fuchsias, and violets, the Sun River Can
