The Padlock Ranch was established by Homer and Mildred Scott in 1943 with 3000 acres and 300 cows. Today, headquartered out of Dayton, Wyoming (just north of Sheridan), we raise over 11,000 calves a year on nearly 500,000 acres across Wyoming and Montana. To us the Padlock Ranch is a small piece of Paradise we wish to share with those who want to experience our working ranch vacations. 

Padlock Ranch is located in the ecotone between the Big Horn Mountains and the mixed prairies of eastern Montana and Wyoming. This location provides a mixture of habitat types supporting a great diversity of plant and animal species.


The Padlock Ranch is a place where guests come to live the legacy! This legacy is founded on sound and enduring principles, such as land stewardship, quality stockmanship, honesty and hard work. It is here that guests experience these principles first hand, while spending a week on an authentic Wyoming working cattle ranch.
 
As ranch hands, guests will be riding the ranch’s finest ranch horses to assist with routine cattle drives, gathering and sorting, as well as checking for health issues and doctoring as needed. Guests also enjoy a relaxing atmosphere full of good times, good food, good friends, and the scenic outdoors. Away from all the intrusions of today’s hurried lifestyles, it is here that guests appreciate a unique sense of accomplishment, camaraderie, and self fulfillment. It is truly the ultimate working ranch vacation!
 
Our guests are those who foremost enjoy and have an appreciation for the western cowboy way of life. They are outgoing, adventurous, and seek opportunities to rise and meet most challenges presented to them. Padlock Ranch guests are not afraid of long, rigorous hours in the saddle, working cattle and participating in other ranch activities. At the same time they take pleasure in times of rest and relaxation, whether this is found around an evening campfire, on a leisurely trail ride, a hike, a sight seeing trip, or in the comfort of their dwelling. They are excited to learn how we are winning the west on this authentic Wyoming cattle ranch!
 
 
For guests seeking to challenge themselves to reach greater heights, we offer a Cowboy School. Cowboy School is an opportunity for us to work with guests on an individual basis to hone in on the skills they would most like to improve.

WINGSHOOTING OPPORTUNITIES
  
 Padlock Ranch offers 3 upland bird hunting experiences:
 
 Wild bird hunting
 
 Wild bird hunting on the Padlock is exciting and productive. Uplands and creek bottoms provide sharptails (chuckle chickens), pheasants and Hungarian partridge. Coulees full of choke cherries, wild plums, buffalo berries and rose hips provide the fall feed these birds need and the colors that make our hunts memorable.
 
 Preserve hunts
 
 Padlock Ranch has four shooting preserves, 2 in Montana, and 2 in Wyoming where we supplement native populations to insure that you will have an exciting and productive wingshooting experience.
  
 Sage Grouse hunts
 
 Sage grouse hunts take place on our 130,000 acre Forks Ranch property. Sometimes the hens are in areas shared by sharp-tail grouse and the occasional pheasant rise makes for an exciting hunt. While hunting sage grouse you will probably see trophy elk and mule deer as well as pronghorn antelope, eagles, burrowing owls and other wildlife species. Ruff grouse have been reported in the high woody rims.
 
 TUITION
 Our 3 day hunting package includes 4 nights at the lodge, 3 days of hunting, guides and dogs, meals, 5-stand and libations for $3,575 inclusive. You need to bring your gun and a desire to have a good time. It will be a long time before the smile goes away.
 
 TRANSPORTATION
 Airports are located in Billings, Montana (BIL) and Sheridan, Wyoming (SHR). We will meet you there. For those driving a detailed map will be provided.
  
 LODGING
 Our Wolf Mountain Lodge is located north of Sheridan, Wyoming on the border with Montana. The lodge is situated on a hillside overlooking Ash Creek, a perennial stream running from the Wolf Mountains to the Tongue River, ten miles away. The valley is home to mountain lion, bear, bobcat, mule deer, turkey and many species of neo-tropical birds.
 The lodge provides an elegant expression of our western lifestyle that we offer to you as a comfortable base from which to explore and hunt our species rich environment. Commons rooms provide for dining and camaraderie while the eight en-suite guest rooms offer quiet and calm after a busy day.
 A five-stand course is available to help sharpen your shooting skills or we can pull a trap and work on the right hand crossing shot that has been bothering you for so long.
 The kitchen staff knows how to make your culinary experience memorable.
 Non-shooting associates will find hiking and other activities to fill their day.
