Durfee Hills

Durfee Hills

The Durfee Hills is an area in the Little Snowies southeast of Lewistown that is home to one of the largest elk herds in the state. There are close to 5,000 acres of BLM & state lands in the Durfees that are land-locked inside the N-Bar Ranch, owned by the Wilks Brothers, oil tycoons from Texas.

Consequently, the prime elk habitat in the Durfees is only accessible by plane and helicopter. Despite the obstacles, the public sections hosts about 200 elk hunter days per year.
