Double JR Ranch

2021 Landowner of the Year - Sheridan Region
Get Involved / Landowner of the Year / Double JR Ranch

Landowners: John and Judy Rueb

The Double JR Ranch consists of parcels along the banks of Prairie Dog Creek east of Sheridan and near the head of the Middle Fork of Crazy Woman Creek in Johnson County.

Wildlife and habitat are flourishing under the Ruebs stewardship. They operate a conservative grazing system for livestock, and the ranch has numerous sloped wetland which are becoming harder to find in the Bighorn Mountains due to grazing pressure. The family has worked with Game and Fish to improve riparian habitat on their stretch of the Middle Fork of Crazy Woman Creek, and also to improve aspen stands on the property by removing encroaching conifers.

The Ruebs also have made contributions to furthering education of natural resource management to others in the area.
