Our Ranch Animals

Our Ranch is home to several exotic animals including Deer, Rams, Elk, Boars, Water Buffalo, and Watusi.

 

Feral Hogs

Texas has more wild hogs than any other state, and the wild hog population in Texas exceeds the total wild hog population of all other states combined!  Our hogs range in type from wild to feral to domestic, with over 90% having Russian boar influence.  The vast majority of hunters take hogs, but as it is with the nature of hunting, not all hunters see or take their bag limits.

 

Elk

Native American Elk were introduced to Texas Ranches over 100 years ago, and now live and survive successfully all over the state.  We have bred and maintained a herd of  Rocky Mountain Elk on our ranch for over a decade.  Each year, we offer a few select mature, trophy bull elk for harvest.  Check with the ranch for availability for this season or next.  Your early deposit will guarantee your trophy bull elk.  Prices range from $3500+ for bulls and $1500 for cows.

Axis Deer

Axis deer are native to India and a few surrounding countries, and was first introduced to Texas in 1932.  Today this beautiful species can be found on many Texas ranches, and is considered by many to be the most beautiful of the deer family.  The meat is also considered by many to be the most tender and flavorful venison.  We offer both buck and doe hunts most of the year.  The hides are also considered a trophy from either sex.  The cost of a doe is $850, and the bucks are $2950 up
