Welcome to Montana Trails Trophy Outfitters


With over 25 years of experience outfitting and guiding clients, I can provide you the opportunity for a trip of a lifetime.  My lodge is located about 25 miles north of Livingston, Montana, 3 miles off highway 89 between the towns of Clyde Park and Wilsall.  This is a beautiful part of south central Montana in the Shields River Valley, nestled between the Bridger Mountains to the west and the Crazy Mountains to the east. 

You will have a comfortable stay in my fully renovated lodge.  I offer free Wi-Fi and phone, queen and full beds, no sleeping bags required.  Your morning will start with a continental breakfast before the early hunt followed by a full breakfast to order or lunch.  After the evening hunt, I will supply snacks, drinks, and a sit down family style dinner.  For our guest flying in and wanting to pack lighter, I will provide laundry service.  

I hunt three private ranches from this location totaling 8,900 acres of prime hunting habitat. The terrain consists of farmland, sagebrush, and treed hills and draws. The elevations range from 4,000 to 6,000 feet.  You will hunt from 4x4 pickups, on foot, and from strategically located fixed and portable hunting blinds.  These ranches offer some of the best early season archery hunting in the Shields River Valley.  I offer antelope hunting at the ranches however the chances of a non-resident being drawn for a tag are very limited without purchasing bonus points.   Predator hunts for coyotes and gophers are available on request.  With the variety of hunting styles I offer, I can usually tailor a hunt to fit just about any hunter’s needs!

I have a fourth private ranch located in eastern Montana near the town of Forsyth.  This ranch has excellent habitat for mule deer and antelope.  This ranch consists of 2400 acres, offering a variety of terrain consisting of farmland, pastures, treed forest, and coulees.  Clients hunting the Forsyth Ranch will stay in a cabin on the property and evening meals will be furnished at local restaurants in the Forsyth area.  If you are interested in hunting the Forsyth Ranch contact me at (406) 686-4761.

I am currently booking for the 2019 season. Please review the hunt schedules and pricing and give me a call to book your hunt of a life time!
