This year we will be hunting from September 1, 2017 until we run out of birds; but no later than March 31, 2018. We allow you to hunt either a half day or entire day. We find that most hunters can only walk about 4 hours, which constitutes a half day of hunting. We are constantly releasing birds so expect to see more birds than what we release for you during your experience at Sanborn’s Fish Kreek Ranch Preserve.
At the end of the hunt we check to see if the birds that you have taken are wild or released, and we put authorized Montana, Fish, Wildlife and Parks, tags on one leg of each bird so that you can legally transport your birds.
Montana Residents: You are required to possess a valid current Montana Conservation License, which must include a Bird Endorsement to be able to hunt on a preserve.
Non-Montana Residents: Out of state individuals can obtain a 3 Day Preserve License for $20 at any participating FWP outlets, however you will need a Conservation License and pay a State Lands Usage of $20 for a fee totaling $40. FWP outlets currently in Whitehall are Ace Hardware and the Corner Store.
