Dove Ranch |
Located within a comfortable distance of the largest city in Montana, the Dove Ranch is a combination of rough, breath-taking breaks with pine covered sandstone juts to rolling lush pastures and a gentle meandering creek. Antelope, deer and upland birds are often spotted throughout the ranch offering excellent viewing, hunting and photography. Historically used as a year ’round cattle operation, the owner sold off his herd and has occasionally leased out the grass to a neighbor thus continuing to properly manage the land for future grazing. A claim to fame for this ranch is the filming of the epic movie of Lonesome Dove. Film crews and the cast of actors spent a month on this location producing the highly acclaimed western production featuring Robert Duvall, Tommy Lee Jones and other well known actors. This ranch nicely joins up to the King Ranch forming a contiguous block of all deeded land with exceptional outbuildings and facilities to run a desireable operation within minutes of Billings and Laurel, Montana.
