Little Missouri National Grassland in southwestern North Dakota is the largest and most diverse of the 19 grasslands found in the western United States. This 140-mile stretch of rolling prairie, badlands terrain, woody draws and high buttes includes more than 1,000,000 acres.
In the north half, bighorn sheep can be seen in Hank's Gully, Cottonwood Creek and Lone Butte. You'll see elk, antelope, white-tailed and mule deer. Watch for sharp-tailed grouse dancing areas, prairie dog towns and more than a hundred eagle and falcon nests.
