Native Texans

For humans to be a Native Texan they need to be born in the state, but wildlife have to be designated as such by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

TTexas offers many exciting and plentiful native animals. By far, the Texas Whitetail is one of the most iconic animals in North America. The ranch is home to a whitetail deer breeding farm, and sells whitetail to other farms throughout Texas.

Valkyrie Ranch is also a refuge and conservatory for several functionally extinct and endangered animals. The ranch affords the opportunity to see animals in the wild that can only be found in pens in zoos.

The ranch offers free range whitetail outside and within our high fenced property that has been developed using our TC1 rated breeding facility.
