Beautiful Home Overlooking Bigfork River With Many Options


Here’s a beautiful property lying on the banks of the Bigfork River. The property has a history of being a cattle farm. The property has excellent potential for someone to keep running it as a cattle farm or turning it into a premier hunting property or both. The timbered areas are also great for future income from logging as well. The mix of timbered areas and pasture areas are excellent habitat for deer, bear, grouse. The timbered areas aren’t thin due to heavy grazing they are comparable and typical to other properties in the area.  Also the river, dug cattle ponds, pasture areas are great for ducks and geese. If someone was to turn it into a hunting property it could be unbelievable!!! This property is one that could be what I call “hunting smart” due to the amount of access options to get in and out of various areas without blowing all the deer off of the property. The pastured field areas would be excellent to put destination food plots and smaller food plots in several different locations tucking these food plots in along the timber edges a person could put box stands between the roads and the timber. This would allow nearly all of the timber to be a sanctuary for deer to stay in then come out of to the feed fields helping a property hold and grow deer. This could be done on the east and west sides of the main chunk of timber through the center of the property. If a person decided to get hunters into the timber there are a few ways to get them into there while still “hunting smart” and still leaving areas as sanctuary if desired. The Bigfork River is also known to have good fishing for Walleye, Muskie, Northern Pike and Smallmouth Bass. The river would also be great to run with canoes, kayaks and small boats. There are tons of great lakes in the area for fishing and boating as well.  In addition to the river there is public lands pinched in between the river and this property as well as across the river. You could boat across the river to access literally thousands of acres of public lands. The land would also be great for trapping. The home has a very spacious and usable layout. The three bedrooms are upstairs with kitchen, living, dining room on the second floor.  On the main entry floor is a large area that could be used as a rec room or man cave!! Or a great space to operate a home business out of.  The views of the river from the home and deck are stunning due to the open space grazed ground behind the home and leading down to the river. The property is also being offered as a few different options of either home and acreage or raw vacant lands. Truly a must-see call for your private showing today!!
