Lucas Ranch , Ringling
The Lucas Ranch,
Owned by the same ranching family for four generations, the uniquely productive Lucas Ranch consists of 8,135 contiguous and private acres within the foothills of the Crazy Mountains.The contiguous nature of the ranch and nearly 10 miles of expansive pasture combined with extensive water resources and hay production, supports a 500 pair cow-calf operation without the need for offsite grazing leases. Cattle remain inside ranch boundaries year-round rotating through the topography of the ranch's highlands before returning home to the valley floor for calving in the winter months.In addition to an impressive cattle operation, the ranch supports extensive wildlife and provides world class elk hunting. The current outfitter's 100% rate of client return is a testament to the resource and the quality of hunting on the ranch. Elk herds number in the hundreds most of the year.
A location within 60 miles of both Livingston and Bozeman provides a balance of convenient access with solitude. Basic amenities and a few welcoming local watering holes are located only a short 20 minutes away, in the charming town of White Sulphur Springs.
The Lucas Ranch's expansive acreage and production capability, combined with its notable recreation opportunities, form a blend that is rare if not singular in Montana's current ranch market.
