WILDLIFE:  Prairie County is in the sagebrush-grassland prairie of the Yellowstone Valley, once considered the greatest hunting area in the west.  The wildlife resources in Prairie County are a major attraction for hunting, fishing and recreation enthusiasts.  Nearly all the lands in the area are considered habitat for wildlife.
