The Crenwelge Ranch offers whitetail trophy hunts as well as management, cull, doe, and turkey hunts. The 648-acre ranch is located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country approximately 22 miles northwest of Fredericksburg, TX ? near Doss, TX. Only an hour and a half from San Antonio or Austin, the ranch is centrally located in the scenic Central Texas area. The ranch was purchased by Sidney Crenwelge in 1982 and continues to be primarily in a natural state with native grasses, numerous live oaks, and gently rolling hills providing an ideal environment for whitetail production. Originally purchased to raise livestock (cattle, sheep, and goats), the Hill Country ranch was high fenced in 2002 and the focus of the operation was shifted to raising trophy whitetail bucks. The Crenwelge family implemented a feeding program including feeding protein and corn year round. Their efforts have resulted in an abundance of trophy whitetail bucks!! Protein and/or corn feeders are located throughout the ranch and 11 blinds are available for your hunting enjoyment.
Whitetail hunts are available in a variety of packages including weekend and day hunts. Lodging is available in fully furnished cabins that comfortably sleep 4 adults. Each cabin has complimentary coffee, microwave, small refrigerator, heat/ac unit, VCR and satellite television. Cabins are supplied with linens, towels, soap, etc. and have private bath/showers. Meals are not included in any of the hunting packages. Outdoor BBQ grills are also available. Wood is available but no charcoal is supplied. Cold storage is available on site with a covered area for cleaning and skinning of deer.

Welcome to Crenwelge Ranch:
Our ranch has been owned and operated by the Crenwelge Family for over 30 years. Located in the heart of the wild and scenic Texas Hill Country our 648-acre ranch is approximately 22 miles out of Fredericksburg. The ranch is largely in a natural state; with native grasses, rolling hills, and live oak that provide excellent cover for whitetail deer and turkeys.
After high-fencing the ranch, we implemented a feeding program, culling less desirable genetics, thus promoting the growth of healthy trophy deer, and wild turkey.
We invite you to enjoy your stay. Grill a steak on the BBQ pit, or watch wildlife on top of the hill from the hunting blind! (Wildlife watch only available in offseason) We ask you to respect the ranch and leave with what you brought. If you have an emergency, I can usually be reached at 830-997-4057 and, if no answer, please leave a message. Additionally, you may try my cell phone 830-889-3506.
