Whitetail:

With 15 years’ experience, we work with some of the best breeders and ranches in Texas to provide you with the best whitetail stock available.
If you are new to the Whitetail industry, we recommend contacting Texas Parks and Wildlife to obtain as much information about what you will need to add or move whitetail to your pastures. Whitetail deer are regulated by Texas Parks and Wildlife and they will be your best source in making sure all steps are done correctly. Contact 512-389-4585 for more information.
No. The Texas Whitetail population is only allowed to be moved within Texas borders as long as all steps have been taken with Texas Parks and Wildlife.
We highly recommend pre-ordering bred doe in November through January. Bred doe are in high demand and we offer packages early to be delivered at the beginning of the following year.
September and October are the best time to add Open Whitetail doe to your pastures.
Most deer and exotic species are ready to breed between 1.5 to 2 years old.
Just like whitetail, the most common ratio needed to start a deer herd and not overwhelm the buck is 1 buck for every 4 does.
Whitetail bucks typically lose their antlers in the early spring and fully grow back before rutting season in the fall. Texas Parks and Wildlife require antlers to be sawed by September each year. This date is subject to change on a yearly basis.
Deer species are grazing animals and need access to brush and small trees. In colder weather they may need hay and good grain in order to meet their nutritional needs. There are many options for deer feeds at your local stores. Introducing higher protein feeds will increase their development.

Exotics:

Whitetail deer are the most commonly kept in breeding pens and closed herd facilities. Growing in rapid popularity is also Fallow deer. Most other exotic deer do not come from closed herds with monitored breeding.
Many of our exotics come from the Central Hill Country of Texas but we work with ranches all over the country to provide the best stock for your ranch.
Texas Parks and Wildlife do not have any regulations at this time to move exotic animals within or outside of the state.
Exotics are available year-round.
Exotics like Scimitar Oryx, Gemsbok Oryx, Watusi, Blackbuck and sheep species are ideal additions to a low fence ranch. However, there is not guarantee that they will not seek greener grass and can easily get through a barbed wire fence.
Axis shed and grow antlers on their own time. Hard-antlered, velvet, or shed bucks can be found year-round.
Scimitar Oryx have gained popularity in Texas due to there easy ability to adjust to the climate. Both males and females have slender pointed horns that are hollow and are more susceptible to breaking during harsh winters or summers. Broken or deformed horns are rarely due to genetics.
