Circle H Ranch Texas
Testimonial : C.R., Odessa, TX , April, 2017
"The truest form of a getaway! 5 STARS! If you want to get out of Texas without leaving Texas, this place is the perfect spot. Circle H Lodge is in a very secluded area that makes you feel like you're on your very own island. The homeowners are the sweetest, so that's a big plus too."

Circle H Ranch & Lodge is one of the most unique places in the Texas Hill Country. If you are looking to have an unforgettable vacation in the Frio Canyon, or wanting to purchase exotic Deer, Antelope, or Sheep for your ranch, Circle H is the right place for you. Started as a Harwood family getaway, Circle H Ranch has turned into one of the most respected exotic hoofstock breeding operations in the State of Texas.

CIRCLE H RANCH has long been known for its active involvement in politics as it pertains to protecting private property rights while also protecting animals from useless and harmful legislation. We are and have been involved with efforts to reintroduce animals back to their native homelands. Breeding a large variety of both super exotic and common exotic hoofstock, while dealing with surplus animals from across the country, we here at the Circle H Ranch can help anyone find almost any species. Red Deer, Blackbuck, Axis, Fallow, Mouflon as well as Kudu, Zebras, Scimitar, Bongos, Addax, Ibex, Markhor, Red Sheep, Transcaspian Urials and so many more are available. We have very strict guidelines for our breeding operation and require nothing but the best from our brokers when dealing with extra surplus from other facilities around the country. If you have an idea about what you are interested in, or don’t have any idea about what would work best for your particular location, we can help you. No order is too small or too large. We do have a surplus list from our holding facilities that we send out to a few select customers and ranches. If you would like to be added to the list we would love to have you. Please e-mail us and tell us to add your e-mail to our surplus animal inventory list. Look through the website and see if there is anything we can help you with. Don’t hesitate to call or e-mail us about any questions you might have because we would like to help.

You can also register direct for the Surplus List. Click here to begin the registration.
