If you don’t like golf courses andski resorts stay away from the Bozeman area, great fly fishing but a lot of money and tourists. My dad and brother live there but don’t like it. The western part of the state is very nice, I’m partial to the Bigfork and Whitefish/Kilspell area. Lots of great deer elk and bear hunting and fishing. Beautiful area and the locals are great. There is some trendy stuff up there especially around Flathead lake. Its not bad and the area is gorgeous with lots of room so you can rome without worrying about the two legged critters.
