Established in 2005, Cold Creek Ranch originated to create whitetail deer stockers, breeders, and exotic animals with superior genetics that are the best in Texas. Bruce Smith founded the ranch with a goal of creating a ranching institution that is abundant with superior animals and wildlife in an arena that truly is an outdoor escape with plentiful harvests and picturesque wildlife and nature.

This whitetail deer ranch convenient to Houston consists of a team of professionals that are fully trained in every aspect concerning the animals; staff is trained in veterinary work and performs vaccinations, chemical immobilizations, and darting. Every task related to taking care of the whitetail deer and exotic animals is performed at the ranch.

Cold Creek Ranch adheres to quality ranch management in association with State Biologists and ranch guidelines. Each member of the Cold Creek Ranch team has an extensive background in ranching and animals. The staff cares for each animal as if they were the only animal on the ranch; around-the-clock care is given to the animals and the 400+ acre property.

At Cold Creek Ranch, we pride ourselves on the breeding process of our whitetail deer and exotic animals and ensure the highest quality animals are bred and cared for at the ranch.
