The Flying Shit House Ranch is a fourth-generation cattle ranch on the Rocky Mountain front, in Augusta, Montana. Mark’s grandfather purchased the first ranch in the depression years. We still use the original brand called the Flying Shit House to hot brand our cattle for identification.
Back in the day, this was mule deer country until about the 1970s. We noticed the whitetail deer moving in around then, and now we have a large whitetail population.
We run Angus cattle on a cow/calf operation and grow barley and alfalfa. During the fall hunting season, the guests get to witness the “daily happenings” on the ranch. Fall time work on the ranch includes working and shipping calves and harvesting grain.
Augusta is a very unique, small western cattle town with a population of 300 people. Along a two-block main- street at the foot of the Rocky Mountain Front sits 4 bars, 3 stores, 3 churches, 1 hotel, 1 motel, and a post office.
The Flying Shit House Ranch headquarters and Lodge is one-mile from main street, but yet in the country! We are all thankful God put us in this beautiful setting and hope you will come visit us!
