The Hi-Line Sportsmen are dedicated to “keeping conservation local,” working with agencies, landowners, and fellow sportsmen to improve wildlife habitat for a wide range of species, facilitate sportsmen access across Valley County and Northeastern Montana, and promote outdoor recreation opportunities year-round.
