About our Ranch
Selman Ranch was established by J.O. and Lena Ernest Selman. J.O. and
Lena both came to Northwest Oklahoma in the late 1800's. Lena's family
came from Missouri in a covered wagon settling near freedom. J.O. came
from a somewhat famous family in Texas. His Uncle John Selman killed the
famous gunfighter John Wesley Hardin. J.O. ran away from home at the age
of fourteen, joining a cattle drive that brought him to Oklahoma. He was
known as "Jimmy Few Clothes", because all he had were the clothes
on his back. J.O. proceeded to build a small ranching empire of over 65,000
J.O. and Lena's son, along with his wife Wilma, established the ranch
here on buffalo creek and the West side of the infamous Cimmaron River.
Near the Cimmaron is the old Ghost Town of Salt Springs where local legend
has it that the last Bank Robbery on Horseback occurred.
Due to the
size of the ranch and the rugged terrain along the Cimmaron River and
Buffalo Creek, we have a variety of hunting available.
converted the Bunkhouse's into comfortable lodging for our guests. We
