I've done a little searching for answers to these questions, but everything comes back with filming locations. I'm not curious about filming locations but where the show is actually supposed to occur. I believe the ranch is supposed to existing north of the national park. They show many city scenes and the implication is that they just popped into town. Helena and Missoula are actually a pretty good distance away. Bozeman wouldn't be that far from the the fixational location of the ranch. Anyone else wondered about this sort of thing?
