South Texas Deer & Exotics Hunts

Santa Margarita Ranch offers fully-guided hunts for Whitetail Deer in the heart of South Texas' famous Golden Triangle.  "Of the 254 Texas counties, 71 percent of all Boone & Crockett Typical whitetail entries and 45 percent of all Non-Typical entries have come from a 13 county area known as the 'Golden Triangle' of South Texas" (Boone and Crockett Record of North American Whitetail Deer, 4th Edition, 2003). Within this 13 county area, LaSalle County that is home to Santa Margarita has gained a reputation as a proven hotspot for producing giant trophy whitetails. For good reason, hunters from literally around the world flood the area every year to maximize their chances of taking the trophy of a lifetime.   Experience the Classic Whitetail Deer Experience at Santa Margarita!

Breeding Program

Santa Margarita Ranch's breeding program is dedicated to producing the largest typical framed deer nature will allow in a healthy deer. We have focused on three primary blood lines that are legendary in Texas for consistently producing the kind of deer that people want to see in their breeding pens and their pastures.
