Central Montana provides fantastic bird hunting opportunities. Mountain grouse, sage grouse, sharp-tailed grouse, Hungarian partridge, and pheasants are found in abundance. Pheasants Forever has listed Lewistown as one of the top pheasant hunting towns in America.
Central Montana is located between the Lewis and Clark National Forest (which includes the Judith Mountains, Big Snowy Mountains, Little Snowy Mountains, Little Belt Mountains, and Highwood Mountains), the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument, and the Charles M. Russell (CMR) National Wildlife Refuge. In addition to public land, the Block Management program managed through Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks offers access to private land from 1,230 landowners and covers 7.4 million acres of land.
