I desperately want to move to montana from michigan and the sooner the better. im 37 years old and single and have worked construction for the last 15 years. im worried about finding a place to rent as i have 2 german shorthaired pointers. also i have no drivers liscence so will need public transportation or carpool. I dont care what line of work i get into i just want to get a job fast. any suggestions on which part to look into? i would like a very small town or country type place with low rent if possible. any suggestions?

Being in Montana without a good running car or truck will be hell. Good luck, you're going to need it !

Sounds lioke you need a larger city like Billings if yoiu need public transportation. Rent shouldnt be that bad. Yuor used to winters so thats a piece of cake. Smaller towns are nice but not usually public transpoetation, My so has lived here in Buffalo Wy for 15 years and walks every where. Good luck!!

What's "public transportation"? Is that being picked up hitch hiking? Seriously, there is a severe lack of public transport here so if that's what you really need then you might want to think twice.

thank you all for the info, and yes i know it sucks anywhere without adequate transportation but i always find a way. actually a friend of mine is likely to follow me out and share a place to live and she would be my transportation, my bigger concern is a place to rent with dogs. they are indoor/outdoor dogs who are in when im home and out when im gone. they are very well behaved but it seems as if people look at dog owners like lepers. I have done nothing but hang drywall and vinly siding for 15 years but am willing to take on any work. I just want out of this economically deprived cesspool that michigan is becoming.

Pretty much anywhere in the flathead would work for you. There's construction jobs, jobs on the mountain at the ski resort and Plum Creek Lumber is crying for people.
