Mountain Men: Ultimate Marksman Filming Locations
‘Mountain Men: Ultimate Marksman’ is filmed in Montana, the fourth-largest state by area and the third-least densely populated state in the United States. The principal photography for the inaugural iteration of the spin-off series seemingly took place in August 2022. Without much ado, let’s look at all the specific sites where the marksmen and markswomen compete in different challenges!
All the pivotal sequences for ‘Mountain Men: Ultimate Marksman’ are lensed in one of the ranches in Montana, which is situated in the Mountain West division of the Western United States. While the state’s western half has many mountain ranges, the eastern half is known for the west prairie terrain and badlands. Montana’s economy is based on several sectors, such as healthcare, service, and government, but mainly agriculture, including ranching and cereal grain farming.
Since ranching is one of the primary sources of Montana’s economy, it only makes sense that there are plenty of ranches throughout the state. One of them serves as the production location for the competition series. Besides, the state consists of many rivers and creeks, which provide water resources for different purposes, including hydropower, recreation, mining, irrigation, and drinking. Over the years, the Big Sky Country has hosted the production of numerous movies and TV shows. Some notable ones are ‘Father Stu,’ ‘What Separates Us,’ ‘Almost Heroes,’ and ‘Yellowstone.’
