About 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 2024-2025 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.
