Southwestern Montana is known for its beauty and rugged terrain, challenging skiing and world class fishing. Wild flowers cover the landscape from April to August. The stunning Madison Range and Madison River Valley is home to the richest and most diverse wildlife population in the lower 48 states. Wildlife can be seen throughout the area year around. Once winter arrives, wintering herds of elk, sometimes numbering in the thousands, are common along the alluvial plains, south of Ennis. Frequently seen are moose, bighorn sheep, deer, coyotes and antelope. Less commonly observed, unless you’re willing to get off the beaten track, are black bear, grizzly bear, wolves, bobcats, mountain lions andmountain goats. Seldom does a person visit without planning how they can return again someday soon. Madison Management offers a variety of vacation rentals near Ennis, Montana.
