Located 15 minutes west of Fossil, Oregon, The Parker encompasses 3,300 acres of creeks, springs, draws, basalt cliffs and juniper on the flanks of the John Day River. The Parker is a portion of the vast, famed Stanley Ranch, known for its large 350”+ class bulls and heavy-horned mule deer bucks that migrate along the ranch and adjacent private lands. With a resident area herd estimated at 600 elk, The Parker is situated in the middle of these private ranches and considered a hunter’s haven. The ranch enjoys all of the components needed to sustain and hold big game. In addition to the deer and elk, The Parker is home to chukar, grey partridge and California quail, as well as the occasional pheasant. Other big game animals that can be seen occasionally on the ranch include pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, bison and barbary sheep.
