Non-Deeded Leased Land

Included is a State lease, described as Zulla Island and that part of Willa Island lying east of Zulla Island. The 141.43 acres lease is in Section 36. Used by the Ranch as livestock pasture. It should be noted that some of the island ground historically grazed by the Ranch (up to another 92 acres) is unleased American Indian land.

The State Lease offers about 3/4 mile of main-channel Bighorn River frontage plus well over a mile of side-channel frontage (much of which also borders the deeded land). Some of the water rights can be utilized for irrigated pasture on the State Lease. The balance of the island acreage is premier wildlife habitat with it's cottonwoods, wetlands and heavy brush cover. Notice that all State Lease transfers are subject to approval by the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC).
