About Our Hosts

The Faber family has been hosting guests at their 4th generation ranch for over 30 years. In the beginning, it was about sharing their beautiful ranch with friends and a few hunters. Over the years, the business expanded and grew. Additional recreational lands were leased, and guest accommodations were built. Montana Outfitting Company is operated by Chris Faber and now boasts over 300,000 private acres of diverse ranchlands as well as access points to over 400,000 acres of hard-to-get-to public lands of the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument. Montana Outfitting Company offers their guests amazing opportunities for outdoor experiences.

Chris graduated with a degree in Business Management from MSU Northern, then fulfilled a master’s degree. Chris spent most of his life on the wrestling mat where he became a 3 Time All-American Wrestler in college. He later was inducted into the collegiate Athletic Hall of Fame.
