For the better part of 4 years now, Montana has been experiencing a migration of people to the state. Simply bring up the topic of "California," "Out-of-Staters" or "Transplants" in a local bar, and you will get locals fired up. People always say that the "new" residents of Montana don't understand what REAL Montana is like. The "new" residents think that Montana is just like what they see on the show "Yellowstone." And there seems to be a sense of justice for the locals when a giant snowstorm or extreme temperatures give the "new" residents a taste of what REAL Montana is like.


Harrison Ford was a guest on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in February of 2023. As we already know, Harrison Ford is one of the main characters in the "Yellowstone" spin-off "1923." During his interview, Ford was asked what winter is like in Montana. His reply was about as honest as any "new" resident and even most locals could describe a Montana winter. Summed up in the following clip with simple profanity.

Well it sounds like the cold temperatures have turned Harrison Ford, Helen Mirin, and Show creator Taylor Sheridan into what we Montanans call "Snow Birds."

A recent report from the Austin Business Journal tells that the award-winning show is packing up in Montana and moving to the ATX Film Studios in Austin, Texas.

No word on whether all of the production will be moving to the Lone Star State, or if some will still film in Butte.
