In 1918 Earl Q. Gray of Ardmore, Oklahoma established the Gray Ranch Company/Pennington Creek Oklahoma Hunting Ranch in Mill Creek, Oklahoma. Gray recognized the grazing potential of this limestone area of Johnston County which was further enhanced by its proximity to the headwaters of the spring-fed stream, Pennington Creek, that runs for several miles through our 9,400-acre property. Its ownership gave him what he regarded as the best all-year-around grazing Hunting Ranch in the state of Oklahoma. Under the Walking G and Q bar brands, Earl Gray also ran cattle here until his death in 1979.
Located on the ranch is a clean, comfortable, easily-accessed, but secluded Oklahoma Hunting Lodge. The Hunting Lodge is capable of sleeping six and has all the amenities of a person’s home. The Hunting Lodge includes a fully furnished bedroom, living room, full bath, and full kitchen, as well as a fully enclosable (depending on the weather) outdoor pavilion that has gas and charcoal grills, as well as a place to sit out around the fire.
The Hunting Ranch in Oklahoma continued to operate as a family enterprise until 1993, then the Hunting Ranch was passed into the hands of Keith R. Gray the grandson. Like his father and grandfather, the third generation owner came to the Gray Ranch with a background, knowledge, and experience in the cattle industry. Since that time the Gray Ranch Company has expanded into the Murray and Carter counties and the operation has been devoted to yearlings on grass combined with a herd of Black and Black Baldy cows. The Hunting Ranch office is maintained in Ardmore, Oklahoma, while the original site near Mill Creek continues as Gray Ranch Headquarters.
Our newly built, top of the line Shooting Range is within walking distance of the Hunting Lodge and we encourage our guests to use it so that you don’t miss your harvest of a lifetime when you are in the field. We encourage you to take a break from the action, sit back and target practice with your hand guns and rifles.
Guests of PCHC will have access to a covered Game Processing Area and walk-in cooler conveniently located adjacent to the Hunting Lodge. We will hang your harvest in the walk-in cooler until your departure. Occasionally, you’ll find that this is the spot that’s gathered around after the hunts have concluded to compare your kills, and tell stories about your day’s hunt on our Ranch.
