Bucky has extensive experience both representing mineral owners and working with oil and gas companies to lease, manage, acquire, liquidate and appraise mineral rights throughout the United States. Bucky has been appraising minerals for more than 30 years and has prepared hundreds of mineral appraisals for purchase, date of death and gifting purposes. As a mineral manager for several different mineral owners, family-owned mineral companies and charitable institutions, he works to get the best possible terms for his clients. Bucky grew up in Montana and bought his first oil and gas lease in 1974, partnering with his father, Chuck Heringer—a mineral buyer who moved to Montana from Midland, Texas in 1952. Chuck and Bucky, endeavoring to offer competent and honest services to mineral owners and oil and gas companies, stared Heringer Energy Resources Company (Herco) in 1980. Bucky and his wife, Geri, have four grown children (two of which work at Herco) and one grandson. Bucky and his family enjoy any outdoor activity and any opportunity to be with their grandson.
