Landowners: The Robert Gill Family

The Jackson Hole Hereford Ranch (JHHR) was created in the late 1920s by Robert Bruce Porter and remains a family operation to this day. The family takes great pride in being stewards of the land throughout five generations. Robert Gill currently continues the family tradition of running a cow/calf operation with the assistance of his family and a pair of great ranch hands, Steve Hardeman and Alex Renova.

The Gill family and employees of the JHHR clearly demonstrate an understanding of wildlife and their habitat needs. The ranch has allowed the Department to operate an elk feedground on their property through the winter months for the last half century. In recent years, approximately 800 elk utilize the Dog Creek Ranch property owned by the JHHR during the winter feeding season.

The ranch has also been instrumental in assisting the Department’s management of the ever growing private land elk herds in the Snake River Bottom in and around the South Park area.

The JHHR has been more than generous by hosting a Wounded Warriors hunt in recent years. This program gives a veteran injured in service an all expenses paid elk hunt on the ranch. Past recipients of this program have been taken aback by the kindness and generosity  the Gill family and employees of the ranch have shown them.
