Situated in the “Golden Triangle” area of north central Montana approximately 45 minutes north of Great Falls, the Teton River Ranch offers outstanding hunting opportunities in one of the most renowned upland bird and big game hunting areas of the state. Owning both sides of the Teton River for approximately 9± miles, the 2,597± acre Teton River Ranch in Choteau County, Montana, is a fabulous sporting property. Over two decades of management to optimize game numbers and hunting opportunities has resulted in trophy class whitetail and mule deer on the property, and truly phenomenal upland bird hunting for pheasant, sharptail grouse and hungarian partridge. Virtually all of the ranch consists of prime hunting habitat - brushy river bottom/riparian habitat, hillside benches, draws and coulees - and the tremendous water resource on the ranch serves as a magnet for wildlife, drawing game from miles around. The compliment of improvements on the ranch, including a 2,052 square foot main residence, a four-plex guesthouse for family and friends, an original ranch house, miscellaneous outbuildings and grain bins, are sufficient to house several hunters, and the ranch is being offered turn-key with furnishings, irrigation, and farming equipment. The ranch also controls an additional 1,440 acres of lease ground for another couple of miles of river and additional hunting opportunities. The Teton River Ranch is one of the finest sporting ranches in Montana and represents a prime purchase opportunity for the avid outdoor enthusiast.

“I began working with Hunter as I contacted him regarding a nice gentlemen’s farm that he was the listing agent on in North Florida. Although after visiting the property it wasn’t a fit for me, I had such a good experience with Hunter I decided to utilize him to list my smaller tract of property in North FL, that I wished to sell, as well as have him assist me in finding my future property. In 6 short months he sold my property for 94% of the asking price. One month later he assisted me in closing on a new tract in Southern GA. I had been looking on and off for over a year for the perfect next tract, but it was through his help that I found it…”
“When it came time to sell our 1,500-acre Montana fishing ranch we knew we would have to find a broker who understood the beauty and uniqueness of this special place. We found that in Jeff Shouse, of Live Water, and his 35 years of market knowledge. Jeff’s expertise in how to position this property and his understanding of who the buyer would be, led to an efficient process and excellent final sales price. Jeff’s friendly, pleasant and easygoing manner made for a wonderful experience!”
“A family client asked me to interview and hire a ranch broker to sell a very unique recreational ranch property. After numerous interviews with all the known brokerages and being in the ranch brokerage business myself in Texas, the choice became a no-brainer after meeting Brian Hartley. Brian understands the product as well as anyone I’ve met with. He also understands how important these rare assets are to the families that own them. I look forward to many more successful sales with Brian and give him my highest recommendation!”
“Thank you to Hunter Brant, who recently listed and sold our 600-acre property in Baker County, Florida, which contained a large custom-built home on the St. Mary’s River. Hunter handled every aspect of the sale of our property with professionalism. He personally oversaw every detail for the Seller and the Buyer that at times was complicated. We look forward to doing business with Hunter again. He has also become a trusted friend.”
Now that we are fully moved and settling in, Carolyn and I wanted to thank Matt and Live Water Properties for the diligence, patience and expertise. Moving 1,800 miles while vetting easements, multiple water rights, land trusts and public land access (on top of the usual issues with any real estate purchase) could have been overwhelming. By making this process efficient and bringing clarity, Matt was key to us realizing a dream. We could not be happier with our purchase!
When listing Huckleberry, I asked only two things of Hunter… I wanted him to communicate with me regularly and work hard. Being in the Real Estate industry for many years, I understand buyers can’t be fabricated, and he would have an arduous task ahead. His marketing, including the use of drone photography and social media, have paid off for our listing. Hunter is very knowledgeable and up to date on the opportunities that exist in the timber and hunting land market, and he is willing to spend time with seller and buyers to make the sale successful for each party. I highly recommend Hunter Brant, would use him again, and feel as though I have made a lifelong friend.
