We are Greg and Shannon Roy, longtime lovers of the Powderhorn Valley and more recently, residents! Our story is an ordinary story turned extraordinary by the blessing of being neighbors with John and Bobbie Martin, the couple who began Mineral Mountain Outfitters way back in the mid '60's. Their story is an amazing lifelong venture of building a business on a dry-land, high-desert acreage, doing something Mr John loved; horses and Cattle.
Over the last 50+ years, they've made friends coast to coast, hosting trailrides, hunters and just those of us who love the Mountains. Now in 2019, they are handing over their beloved livelihood to us.
It is with much excitement and humbleness that we are transitioning into this role of owner of Mineral Mountain Outfitters. One thing that we heard over and over this last summer and fall, was appreciation for John and Bobbie's hospitality, their integrity and honesty. It's a tough act to follow, but we are ready to carry the torch high.
Hunting has been an integral part of our family for generations, Greg's grandfather first traveled to the Powderhorn from Luther, OK with other Okies, to hunt the mule deer and elk with over the counter tags. Greg grew up hearing these stories and when we were newly married we traveled to Powderhorn to see what it was all about. By the time our third child arrived, we were making regular camping trips to the Valley to spend a couple weeks during the heat of Oklahoma summers. All of our children have good memories of these times. Even now, our three grandchildren have begun making their own memories.
In 2018, Greg and I both filled our rifle tags for elk, he with a bull and myself, a cow. We have always been DIY hunters on public lands; processing our own meat and enjoy supporting others doing the same.
Check back weekly to keep up with some of the changes happening on the Powderhorn, while we endeavor to grow the reputation for hospitality and hunting.
