Sweetgrass upland hunting
A World-class Western experience and national park-like scenery with three distinct hunting areas: Duck Creek Breaks, Mae Mae Grassland, and the Forest Hunt. Each day offers varied terrain and a one-of-a-kind wing shooting experience unlike any other.
Duck Creek Breaks
Located in the "Home Pasture" of Sweetgrass, this walk-up hunt offers tall grass and cottonwood trees for pheasant hide-outs all along Duck Creek. A common phrase on this hunt is "let the dogs do the work."
Mae Mae Grassland
The Mae Mae Pasture comprises of 300 acres surrounded by Thunderbasin National Grassland. Its unique topography is perfect for chukars. It's not uncommon to spot Sharp-tail grouse hiding among the sage brush, and they are huntable in season.
A one-of-a-kind experience hunting in the tree-lined black hills. It can challenge even the most experienced upland hunters with quick narrow shots. Covering two different pastures at the ranch, the terrain is as breathtaking as the views.
