so by the name I take it you hunt... I have not hunted since I was little, I would like to get my son out a few times... I read something about the hunting has gone down as in the animals have been sick and not as many plus you guys are having over crowding of hunters and not from local but out of state people... is that true? if the animals have been sick whats wrong with them or does anyone know? That is sad, I know a lot of people here that hunt and hunting places are getting over crowded and they are having trouble tagging anything

Talking looking for small town in montana

I do not want a city i want something under 10,000 people but more then 1,000 and hope that there is good medical team there or within 20 minutes from the town.. something with a friendly feel even for outsiders.. something were i can live not live paycheck to paycheck but not a fancy thing either. I want to raise my son the good ol fashion way and dont think i have so far.. i want him to make quality friends not quantity. i want out of this fast pace and to slow down and learn to enjoy life again... Prefer the east side of the state. Any suggestions..

You are like so many people, looking too broad for some place to solve your problems.

Before anyone can help you, you need to give enough information to be able to give you advice.

You don't want to live hand to mouth you say, so apparently you are going to want to be employed. What type of work are you going to be looking for. It may not be available in the particular town you would like to choose to live in. Example, there are a lot more higher paid jobs in the Eastern Half of the state, than on the Western Half. Unemployment rate and wages, can be drastically different between different sections of Montana.

How far are you willing to drive to work, if that type of work is not available in your chosen town.

When you say you want a good medical team, do you mean a family practice office, or more sophisticated and specialized medical care. This can make a lot of difference, when choosing a new place to live in more rural states like Montana.

[Mod cut]As to Oldtrader, I am not looking for my field it has gone down hill in all states I am not being picky in regards to work as long as I can put a roof over my child's head, clothes on his back and food in his belly (no particular order). I have done a lot of my research around the medical portion since that is a concern for me. The only special type thing I would be needing is cardiologist but I have found that if you have a good Dr you don't need the specialist all that much and the travel to the specialist will determine on how good the Dr is in that particular area. This is not something I have taken lightly or just woke up one morning deciding this is what I want to do for today lets have fun with it, I have looked at four other states but so far Montana has topped the others except that the people I have came across it is a 50/50 toss up on whether they will be the type of quality people I want in our life so we may now look elsewhere... I have not had any good feed back on any of the places I have selected and the ones that where advised to me have been also shot down from other who think it is not a wise move. I post in general to see who will post what and just get the feel for things. your questions are the ones I have already asked myself why doing my research on all the places. Hence to why I am looking to be on the east side and not the west. And for other reason that I have found in my research. City data is not my only refrence in my search I have been to well over 65 different cites and forums to gather my information.

I have to agree with some of the posters here. I knew I wanted to move west, uproot my family and head out- primarily to be closer to family but also for the outdoor recreation opportunities.

When opportunities came up- I moved on them. Had two offers at the same time to transfer, Denver or Helena. I don't recall ever asking anyone on the boards a ton of 'where should I's or is it right for me?' I chose and asked 'anyone know of good rentals in Helena? I'm moving in a few weeks!

Maybe just me, but if u want to move...move!

Oh and I didn't give one rats a*s how we would be received either. Maybe the hillbilly in me says "if'n u don't like me, okay- don't care".

I wanted to move, I made the opportunities, I pulled the trigger. Was it perfect? Almost, but I made mistakes, I could have done things better....

Like the phrase in the good the bad and the ugly- "If you're gonna shoot, shoot...don't talk!"

If you have need for a good cardiologist you should consider Billings, which is the Medical go to place for 4 states and southern Canada. They have very good medical facilities there. The smaller towns don't have the cardiologists that Billings have, as you only get that type of service in bigger facilities, not in small towns. I know, as I live 50 miles from Billings, and I have to go to Billings to see a Cardiologist. I have been with 3 different ones in the last 2 months, finding my problem including the heart failure department till they found it was a medication problems. I am very glad they have the facilities for heart problems they do have.

Michrdias, have you found the City-data pages for Forsyth & Miles City, since those were your first interests? Down on the page after the stats are a bunch of forum posts discussing those towns. Hope those may help.

I used to haul rail roaders in and out of Forsythe and there just isn't much town there. I can't imagine anybody advertising if a house was available for rent, it would probably be more word of mouth then anything. Not sure if there is a local paper to Forsythe or not.
