In the late 1860s, Burk made his first cattle drive to Kansas. The following year he trailed his own herd up the Chisholm Trail. He was the Founder of the Four Sixes Ranch, hob-nobbed with Chief Quannah Parker of the Comanches (part of the reason he was successful in his ranching) and with President Theodore Roosevelt who he invited to a wolf hunt in 1906.
