As a child, there’s a strong chance you pretended, at least once, that you were a cowboy (or cowgirl). You imagined wide open spaces, riding horses, roping cattle, meals cooked over a campfire, endless adventure and sleeping under the stars. Now that you’re an adult…you still day dream about the exact same things (at least I still do). Well, maybe now that you’re an adult you think about a few more creature comforts when plotting how to turn your wild west fantasy into a wild west reality. For that, there’s The Resort at Paws Up.
I just returned from a long weekend in Montana spent at The Resort at Paws Up, a luxury 37,000 acre working cattle ranch in the southwestern corner of the state. Known for their luxury camping tents (think: full bathrooms, heating, comfortable beds), Paws Up is the American version of a luxury African safari. You’ll spend your days out exploring the property, whether on foot, horse, ATV or raft and return to gourmet meals and amazing accommodations. I visited to attend Montana Master Chefs, a weekend long culinary event (you can learn all about it in this TMT article), as well as to cram in as much adventure possible into this 3 day trip.
Below is a vlog I put together on the experience. Below that are just a few photos taken along the way. Enjoy.

Making may way through The Resort at Paws Up’s multi-station shooting range. I hit two clays with one bullet…three times in a row (brushes shoulders off).
And one more of that incredible picnic table.
