I doubt if you will find a position like that here before living in Montana for a long long time and getting to know how farm or ranch life works in Montana. There are a lot of locals with ranch experience who are waiting for a position like that and the locals will always be chosen before a newcomer from out of state.

We needed a life change when we lived in San Diego so we loaded up our two rigs and moved to Kalispell. We had no savings account, no credit cards, no place lined up to move into and no jobs lined up to earn money ! We moved up here with $2000. cash that we had saved up. It was freaking scary to say the least. I worked "temp" jobs and my wife started doing handcrafting. With a little help from neighbors and the food bank we finally crossed the Rubicon and got some income happening just as we ran out of the money we brought with us. Now we are pretty much retired and have two income producing properties after 12 years here. Don't give up, if a couple of broken down old dumclucks like us can do it so can you. The ranch hand thing may happen but you will pay some dues living here working like slaves at first. The best thing to do is have an "I can do anything if I want to if I work hard enough" attitude. Just be forewarned that the cost of living is high here and the wages are low low low ! I always tell folks who want to move here is that Montana is a B.Y.O.J. state ! If you are rich, no problem but if you are poor you'll need a lot of luck. Say hi to the great state of Tennessee for me, and to the guy who tried to mug me near the Knoxville bus station a few years ago, tell that guy I hope he recovered from his wounds !!!

LOL U know sometime we look at life as if its job that we have to get up everyday and go to. Will I'm sick of looking at it this way. Life is one time it's one shot no due overs. So a little hard work never killed anyone but a unhappy life style can kill a life. Change is good it makes us better people in many ways, but change is the one thing we all fight our hole life. I'm just ready to stop fighting life and start liveing my life. Thanks for the Info And I'll see what I can do with Mr Konxville HA HA

You might possibly be able to find a Montana ranch job even if they are very desired by locals....my mom, a local, says, "anyone living in Montana is not exactly a go-getter" and several employers in Kalispell I have heard complain across the board they just cannot find good help. The younger men are lazy, don't want to do the work. Many of the ranchers in Wyoming and Nebraska are having to put up with drunks for ranch hands. Maybe Montana, then, too. Why not put out an ad for yourself as NON-DRINKING, VERY ENERGETIC ranch hand available?

Roberta makes sense.
If you sell yourself correctly someone might be interested. You never know what an employer's experience is with local help. Why do you think illegals get so many jobs in some areas? It's not just that they work cheap.
