About AMB West Hunting Program

To better reflect the growth of the hunting program to now include all four AMB West ranches, the Paradise Valley Ranch Hunting Program is now the AMB West Hunting Program.

As Montana ranch owners for two decades, AMB West is dedicated to conserving our lands for future generations while also serving our community by being good neighbors. To help our conservation efforts, we’re pleased to offer this unique hunting opportunity across all four properties during the 2023 elk season. The ranches are located south of Livingston, MT in the Paradise Valley. All of these limited elk hunts are completely free of charge and led by our skilled staff.

AMB West is comprised of four properties.  Mountain Sky Guest Ranch, Paradise Valley Ranch and West Creek Ranch are all located in HD 314, north of Rock Creek. The Ranch at Dome Mountain is located in HD 313.

COW ELK HUNTS – APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED. All Montana residents are eligible to apply for a cow elk hunt.  Over 100 hunters will be drawn for the 2023 general rifle season.  EARLY and LATE SHOULDER SEASON opportunities are available, too.

  • EARLY SHOULDER SEASON COW HUNTS (Aug 15 – Sept 1) – a 314 B-TAG is required to harvest a cow during the early shoulder season.  Due to weather conditions, these opportunities are limited to early morning hunts.
  • GENERAL RIFLE SEASON COW HUNTS (Oct 21 – Nov 26) – Cow elk may be harvested with a general elk tag or a 314 B-TAG.  Youth hunters with a 313 B-TAG may harvest a cow at The Ranch at Dome Mountain.
  • LATE SHOULDER SEASON COW HUNTS (Nov 27 – Feb 15) – Hunters will need a 314 B-TAG or an unused general elk tag to harvest a cow elk.  These late shoulder season opportunities are limited based on herd sizes and snow/feed conditions.

BULL ELK HUNTSAPPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED.  Only Park County residents are eligible to apply for a bull elk hunt.  Four hunters will be drawn for the general rifle season.  These bull elk hunts occur at PVR only.
