Retreat Location
Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Ranch (owned by the Boone & Crockett Club) is a 6,500-acre property that lies in the foothills of the east slope of the Rocky Mountains near Dupuyer, Montana.

The property abuts thousands of acres of national forest and wilderness areas and contains critical winter habitat for elk and mule deer. Additionally, whitetail deer, cougar, grizzly and black bears regularly use this property, and bighorn sheep and mountain goats occur in adjacent national forest lands. This unique environment offers the perfect laboratory to study the coexistence of agricultural land uses and wildlife for research purposes.

The ranch has a large dining room and lounge space facing the gorgeous Rocky Mountain Front, an outdoor deck, property to explore, archery and target range, a kitchen fully equipped with cooking implements, and an incredible learning lab with specimens.

Communal rooms are shared accommodation in spacious, bright, clean dorm rooms. Up to three people per room. There are two shared bathrooms with showers.
