Cool Hunting in Glasgow,MT


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I'm thinking of buying some property in the Glasgow, MT area and plan to in the near future. Is the hunting good there ? I know the hunting is good in Montana practically everywhere, and I hear the Milk River region is great !!! Any thoughts ? Thanks.

I grew up hunting along the Missouri in Fort Peck. Hunting is good along the Missouri and Milk River's. In the summer, mosquito population densities along the Milk are some of the highest in the world. Pheasants can be hit or miss. The whitetails are the same variety found in North Dakota. They can reach good size but rarely certainly not Saskatchewan record book type deer. If I were looking to buy a property just for trophy deer, I'd look elsewhere. If you just want a place to hunt or are buying for another purpose as well, it might be worth it. If you want isolation, it is good. If you want scenery, it is not.

Thanks for the info myt-bird ! I'm not looking for trophy deer, just several different types of game to hunt. I'm a single dad and am looing for a nice little town in a nice community. I like the idea of Fort Peck Lake nearby. I want to hunt mulies and pronghorn as well as whitetails and I love to fish for walleyes and smallmouth bass. I'm going to take a road trip there in summer and check it out.

Then you won't find a nicer place to live. Fort Peck is in a league of its own as far as small towns go. That is because it used to be a gov't. town. All the streets are paved with curbs and sidewalks too. Only problem is the elementary school closed down years ago so the kids have to be bused to Glasgow (20miles) or Nashua (9 miles). There's a cute little old hotel there and a theatre with live plays in the summer. A nice little church too. But theres no grocery store (Glasgow again). There are a couple little places just out of town for gas and convenience items but they cater primarily to hunters and fisherman so aren't always open year round. Of course, there are plenty of bars. But a nice, safe place to raise a family. My dad just moved away a couple years ago but I still try to make it back for hunting on occasion. There's plenty of public land around too so you don't even need to buy property for hunting.

Sounds like my kind of place Myt-bird !!! Thanks for the info !!! I think there's an old saying about finding one's own slice of heaven. Maybe that will be mine.

Since you like to hunt and fish, you'll have no problems finding friends there. You might, however, want to bring your own woman! Good luck!

Myt-bird I was afraid of just such a thing. I 'll probably just drive to Missoula and select a philly from that herd (college town). Ha Ha
