The escarpment of the Powder River Breaks provides ideal habitat for elk, mule deer, and pronghorn. Positioned on the divide ( 3,800 to 4,200 feet) between Tongue River and Powder River the area is known to average 14-18 inches of precipitation per year which produces strong sod and excellent forage. Solid grass management has resulted in feed that can only be seen to believe.
There are two BLM grazing allotments. The Hope Allotment that runs with the Upper Otter Creek Ranch is rated at 528 AUM's. The Fence Creek Allotment that runs with the private lease ground is rated at 503 AUM's. Both BLM allotments allow grazing throughout the year.

Thick pockets of Ponderosa Pine along the ridges and sage covered hills provide excellent cover. Gentle valleys and deep canyons also provide protection and iconic hunting terrain. The rolling grass meadows provides excellent food plots. Large elk in the 375 and 384 class were taken by bow and rifle in 2017.
