Near San Antonio, and just a short drive from Austin or Houston, you’ll find Rancho Madroño, an exotic hunting ranch offering Texas Exotic Hunts for Scimitar Horned Oryx, Blackbuck Antelopes, Axis Deer , and Mouflon Rams on our sprawling ranch. At Rancho Madroño, exotic hunting is our passion. We manage the land to produce healthy, top-sized animals suitable for trophy mounts. The ranch features creek bottoms, wooded hills, live oaks, and grass meadows for grazing.
All hunting packages are designed as fair chase exotic hunts in the Texas Hill Country. The terrain is hilly and wooded with many areas to exotic hunt in blinds or on foot, providing a challenge to hunters to hone their hunting skills with the beautiful surroundings of a very private ranch with live water creeks, bluffs, plateaus, hills, and a hidden secluded creek valley. Near San Antonio, our ranch lies at the gateway to South Texas.
FOOD AND LODGING – Texas Hunting Lodges
Your Texas Trophy Exotic Hunt starts out in one of our high-end hunting lodges at Rancho Madroño. Your lodging and meals are an all-inclusive part of your Trophy Exotic Hunting Experience. We go all out for your comfort and have three separate hunting lodges to accommodate you with private, family friendly, group, or corporate hunting lodge options. Enjoy your stay from a quaint creek side lodge to our Main Hunting Lodge equipped with a pavilion, built in custom grills and smoker, and a private swimming pool. Minimum occupancy is required for the Main Hunting Lodge.
A big part of the exotic hunting experience is being able to have a great meal under the Texas Hill Country stars in such a unique and tranquil setting that is Rancho Madroño. After an enjoyable day of hunting, relax and exchange stories fireside of the day’s hunt and other tales, “Tall Texan or otherwise,” with your hunting companions. We provide our hunting guests with a private cook serving mouthwatering steaks and wild game dishes along with traditional southern hill country fare. During your exotic reservation process, please let us know whether you have any dietary needs or special requests so we can adjust our menu.

Rancho Madrono prides us on the success rates of our guided trophy exotic hunts here at our Texas ranch. In the event a hunter wounds an animal, which means a hunter draws hair or blood, and we are unable to recover the animal, we must consider the animal to either to be expired or will expire. We must consider this to be a harvested animal and you will be responsible for full payment of the animal in question. Our hunting guides will do their best to recover your downed exotic or other game animal, but it is up to the guide to decide when to call the search off and deem it a loss. If we call in tracking dogs to aid in the recovery or any additional resources, the hunter would be responsible to cover any extra charges whether successful or not. If you shoot and we do not find hair or blood, then the shot will be determined to be a miss by the guide, and you can continue to pursue your trophy exotic or additional game animal.
A 50% nonrefundable deposit is required to secure all hunt dates. Once an invoice is submitted the minimum 50% deposit must be received in order to hold the requested hunt dates. If for any reason you cannot make your hunt date and Rancho Madroño is notified in writing within 30 days of the scheduled hunt date, you can reschedule up to one year from your previous scheduled dates.
