God, how did I miss this one?

Sometimes I think the scariest thing about the Montana Forum is that there's somebody, somewhere out there, taking this stuff seriously.

Default Well I knew it was bound to happen...........

Well I knew it was bound to happen.............the unimproved 13 acres on my east side was bought by, guess who ,...a "trust-fairian" from the land of "fruits and nuts"!!
I have had my privacy and not be able to see another house since I bought my 14 acres back in the spring of 1976.......
First thing this guy did last winter, was hire a local small general contractor and paid him $1200/per day to: cut down about 50 trees (aspen, pondarosa, lodgepole and hemlock), that were under 8 inches in dia; 2nd thing was to clear out ALL THE UNDER-GROWTH ( various specie of bushes, vines, wild rose bushes, alder etc), and then burn the slash piles for about 6 weeks during this last spring............(Now he is wondering why he has no wildlife on his place)...In reality all this clearing (8 days worth) did was increase the numbers and species of wildlife on my uncleared 14 acres by about 50%.
The one positive aspect of having this particular family is: they have two adult daughters that live on the west coast and one 16 yr old daughter who is.... dating a local family's son who is a very nice, quite boy who is in 4 H and a straight A student.........so no trail bikes, atvs etc.
I already told them that I am a handloader and periodically will be using my 100yd shooting range and 25 yd pistol set up as well as shooting clay birds on occasion.........welcome to the boonies in Montana

Well maybe he was worried about wildfire, which is a legitimate concern.

I think you'll be considerably happier with a trustfunder neighbor than a completely broke one. At least he'll have money for his half of fence upkeep. So if you have to have a neighbor, you can have a good fence.

Montana is open range law, what you don't want in your place, you fence out. IF it's an agreed upon fence then yeah, he should pay half, but if you're trying to keep the peace and fence him out, it's all on you.


Griz, sorry to hear that. It's always sad when that happens, but you can't stop it.


At least he'll get a good neighbor out of the deal.

I think a fair amount of people take this seriously.

I need some help from a kind hearted person from Montana. I'm almost 21 years old and my husband is almost 22, though please don't stereotype us. We do have an 11 month old son, and I am about 4 weeks pregnant. The worst part is that I have Chronic Lyme Disease and a very bad back from multiple things including a car accident. I'm neurologically and physically disabled. We're barely getting by here financially with the help of welfare.
We decided to move out of state when we found out I was pregnant. We hate California. We hate the gun laws. We dislike the people very much. Our family is here, but we would be a million times happier in a secluded, completely different environment. Where people have manners and morals. Where people learn to get through the struggles of, for example with montana, weather and job hunting and driving to another town for an errand, to be able to enjoy all the benefits that the state brings. We've never fit in here. We keep to ourselves for that very reason. Because we have morals and respect, and no one else does. It's too busy here as well.
We aren't experienced in the typical Montana activities, but we respect them and would hope that we would be welcomed despite that. We would fight for the life that Montana has to offer. My husband and I have been through hell and back with life constantly, and we're prepared to learn to do anything to be happy and raise our family the way it properly should be. Not in California where the kids have no manners or respect. We've searched the state's and we know the downfalls montana has to offer, but we're so miserable in this state of California, the struggles would be worth it.
Would anyone reach out from Montana to tell me what they know, what I should know?
