Hunting & Packages

Sherwood Montana Outfitting in Columbus, Montana offers one day hunting and fishing charters as, combination Mule Deer hunts, as well as three-day sportsman package hunts with any of the following. For over thirty years, Sherwood Montana Outfitters have offered some of the best hunting, fishing, and lodging in southern Montana.



We have several locations available for Mule Deer as well as Whitetail. Our hunting strategy differs for each client depending on ability. Hiking into land inaccessible by vehicles to spot and stalk your trophy is one option. The other option we offer is to hunt from a four-wheel-drive vehicle on our private ranch roads to spot your trophy and plan accordingly. Average shots are between one hundred and four hundred yards. We only hunt our ranches lightly, so you can expect to see several deer each day.

Pheasant & Chukar

We have a one mile long private island on the iconic Yellowstone River. It is one of the only privately-owned islands in the area. This island is stocked with Pheasants and Chukar Partridge. We have several excellent hunting dogs for guided hunts. Bringing your own dogs is also an option. Each hunt is private. That means that your group will be the only group on the island for the entire time of your hunt. Our birds are very healthy, and hard flying.

Merriam Turkey

Our private ranches are full of wild turkeys. Spring and fall turkey hunts are available. Our guides are very experienced at calling as well as spotting and stalking.


Yellowstone River Trout

The Yellowstone River is world famous for its breath taking beauty as well as its fishing. We offer charters from the early spring to the late fall. Fishing this large river from a jet boat allows us to move up and down the current with ease! Raft trips are also available upon request.

Beartooth Mountain Trout

Finding trout in high mountain streams is possible and fun all year around. We have several spots in our own Custer National Forest to target Brown, Cutthroat, and Eastern Brook Trout. While summertime fishing is generally the most popular, we have several spots that are the best in the fall due to fish schooling in large numbers.

Yellowstone River Catfish

Just East of our home location, Catfish can be caught. Fishing for them is done via jet boat. Fish sizes generally range from five to fifteen pounds, but giants are always lurking in the deep waters! 

Yellowstone River Small Mouth Bass

In the fall of the year, Small Mouth Bass can be targeted and caught in the Yellowstone River. Fish can be found in large schools, but only in certain spots on the river. We access these fishing holes on our eighteen-foot Crestliner jetboat. It is not at all uncommon to catch upwards of seventy fish in a day!
