In Big Sky Country the Prairie of the Great West meets the Sky. The phenomenal habitat creates spectacular unmatched upland bird hunting. Wild birds in truly wild country. Native sharp-tailed grouse inhabiting the country side are plentiful. Hungarian partridge and ring-necked pheasants also thrive in this extraordinary system. The land we explore is associated with one of the largest wild prairie ecosystem in existence today. The landscape provides staples such as snow berries, buffalo berries, and assorted terrestrials that produce a perfect habitat.
