Two Worlds Come Together to Better The Whitetail and Exotic Breeding Industry

Lodge Creek Whitetails, Cypress Ridge Whitetails and Cypress Creek Ranch Merge

Three ranches have merged to create a one-stop location for customers looking for Whitetail Deer, Exotics, and African animals.

Cypress Creek Ranch and Cypress Ridge Whitetails, based in Leakey, TX are combining operations with Lodge Creek Whitetails in Jacksboro, TX.

“Lodge Creek Whitetails has an impeccable reputation in the Whitetail Deer industry,” said Pete Moore of Cypress Creek Ranch. “It’s a great way to bring a combined 50-plus years of experience in both the Whitetail and Exotic worlds to create a full-service business for our customers.”

From Bongo to Zebra, many have wondered what animals are behind the gates at Cypress Creek Ranch.

“We have a love for the animals, especially the endangered species, and have a passion for preserving the species,” Moore said. “It makes sense to come out of the shadows on the Exotic side.”

Lodge Creek Whitetails is home to some of the biggest and best-known genetics in the Whitetail Deer industry, with the top bloodlines and recognizable Breeder Bucks such as Commotion, Phenom and Gladius. The operation, owned by the Mitchell family in Fort Worth, along with Madison Michener has the reputation and the expertise in breeding and raising superior Whitetail Deer .

Moore and Mitchell, both in the real estate business, have worked together previously on business deals and along with Michener discussed the idea and agreed to the sale and merging of the Lodge Creek herd into the family of Cypress Creek Ranch and Cypress Ridge Whitetails.

Michener of Lodge Creek said there is a growing trend of people adding exotics to their ranches.

“Together, we can service the customers better,” he said. “Both facilities have an impeccable reputation regarding the quality of their animals and for customer service before and after the sale.”

Combined the new operation has a herd of over 200 Super Exotics and 1100 Whitetail Deer.

Moore and Michener are excited that two different herds, both at the top of their game, are now one.
