About Montana

Montana

imgFrom antelope-speckled, short grass prairies in the east to snow-capped mountain ranges and free-flowing rivers in the west, it’s no wonder Montana has been dubbed “the last best place.” Inspiring landscapes and easy-going, friendly towns combine to form Montana’s six distinct regions. 

In fact Montana has several nicknames, none official, including: "The Treasure State" and "Big Sky Country", and slogans that include "Land of the Shining Mountains" and more recently, "The Last Best Place". 

The state ranks fourth in area, but 44th in population, and accordingly has the third-lowest population density in the United States. 

Montana is well known for its mountainous western region, most of which is part of the Northern Rocky Mountains. About 60% of the state is prairie, part of the northern Great Plains.

The economy is primarily based on services, with ranching, wheat farming, oil and coal mining in the east, and lumber, tourism, and hard rock mining in the west.  Millions of tourists annually visit Glacier National Park, the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, and three of the five entrances to Yellowstone National Park. The Bureau of Economic Analysis estimates that Montana's total state product in 2003 was $26 billion. 

Montana is a relative hub of beer microbrewing, ranking third in the nation in number of craft breweries per capita. 

Montana's personal income tax contains 7 brackets, with rates ranging from 1% to 6.9%. Montana has no sales tax. 

In presidential elections, Montana was long classified as a swing state, though in recent years, Montana has been classified as a Republican-leaning state, as the state supported Republican presidential candidates in every election from 1996 to the present.

The Montana State University Department of Animal and Range Sciences estimates that in the State of Montana are between 150,000 and 180,000 horses.

Montana is home to one herd of wild horses which is located in the Pryor Mountains south of Billings along the Montana-Wyoming border. For more than a century, the Pryor Mountains have been home to free-roaming bands of wild horses. In 1968 Montana set aside 31,000 acres in the Pryor Mountains as a public range for the wild horses living there.  The Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range is unique in both its setting and for the wild horses that inhabit it. Many of the horses have primitive striping on their backs, withers, and legs and are reputed to be descendents of "colonial" Spanish horses.

Homestead on Jerked Priarie

Wise River, Beaverhead County, Montana


Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest is the largest national forest in Montana, covering 3.35 million acres in the southwestern part of the state. It is famous for its big game animals, so if hunting, fishing, hiking, snowmobiling or skiing are among your pursuits, this is the place to be. Jerked Prairie is a rare inholding situated in the heart of the Pioneer Mountains with full automobile access in the summer and over the snow vehicle access in winter. Words simply will not do this special place justice. The hand-built custom log home and the guest cabins are works of art, but for details, let’s start outdoors with the vast acreage and all of its splendor: Lambrecht Creek — loaded with westslope cutthroat trout — runs the length of the property. Elk, moose, deer, bear, wolves and other wildlife will traverse your property every day, viewable from the deck of the log home. Mountain meadows, timber and creek bottoms combine to make this the most beautiful property on the market today. Access to hundreds of thousands of acres of forest lands is part of the joy of ownership. A meticulously handcrafted 3600sf log home is the main residence, with all the conveniences of modern homes, yet completely off grid. A stunning new guest cabin and two refurbished cabins from 1901 are on the property to accommodate guests. The main log home features a beautiful wooden interior, an open floor plan with big windows and lots of natural light, a spacious kitchen with an island, a gorgeous stone fireplace and many other amenities. One must visit this rare inholding in person to understand the sheer overwhelming beauty and how much privacy the forest location provides.
