The Stray Bullet


Welcome to The Stray Bullet in Ovando, Montana. I am proud to be a 5th generation family from the Blackfoot Valley. This valley is a remarkable example of landowners, neighbors and sportsmen working together to show our pride and respect for this landscape. We make every effort to use local products and businesses to help sustain our community by providing quality service and a taste of the west.

To the locals, I thank you for your support, and to those of you passing through, we hope you enjoy your stay and spend some time exploring this one of a kind community.

Where the name The Stray Bullet comes from:

In the late 1800’s once stood a saloon providing drinks to the cowboys who ranched the land of the Blackfoot Valley. Usually on Friday or Saturday night, things would get out of hand. Bar room brawls erupted, pistols were drawn and fired. Sometimes the unlikely cowboy may take a graze in the shoulder or if he were really lucky the shooter would miss his target completely and have a “stray bullet”. One of those stray bullets remains immortalized in the cafe's wall.

What The Stray Bullet provides:

Open in the summer daily from 7 am - 3 pm. Seasonal hours may vary. Breakfast and lunch. Dinners by reservation. Beer and Wine available.
