Paul was born and raised in the Sheridan area on his family Ranch. After earning a B.S. in Microbiology at the University of Wyoming, Paul returned to the family Ranch to continue the efforts of the three previous generations. At the time of his return, the operational focus of Canyon Ranch was in need of a review because the economics in the 1980’s had made the cattle business very difficult. The history of the family’s management of the property contains significant changes in operations based on economics of the times. OH Wallop started in the horse industry, raising and selling horses for the military remount programs throughout the world. As the military focus changed from Calvary to mechanized forces, Paul’s Grandfather shifted into the cattle industry. The question became where to turn when the cattle market went in to a down turn.
Paul helped to develop a year-round hunting and fishing operation at the family Ranch. During the fall and winter seasons he created a world-class hunt club focused on driven pheasant shoots in the European tradition with a Wyoming style. He used the traditional agricultural practices to enhance the wildlife habitat on the property. In the summer months Paul developed guided fly-fishing adventures based at the ranch, which became an Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Lodge.
Paul’s 25 years of experience in the combined ranching and outfitting businesses makes him uniquely qualified to help sellers evaluate the full potential of ranch properties and to help buyers find the properties that best fits their interests.
