The Y.O. Ranch is 40,000 acres of rugged Texas hill country. Situated west of San Antonio off IH 10. The Y.O. offers a unique backdrop for many different locations. Established in 1880 by Texas Ranger Captain Charles Schreiner, the Y.O. Ranch is one of the oldest family owned working ranches in Texas and is home to the largest and most beautiful heard of registered Texas Longhorns in this state. Over 60 species of exotic wildlife, like giraffe, wildebeests, buffalo, kudu, scimitar-horned oryx, axis deer, fallow deer and ostrich roamed this vast land and our guests are given an opportunity on our wildlife tours to get up close to these animals and photograph them in their natural habitat. Or they can enjoy the beauty of the ranch on horseback. The ranch also offers hunting year round. Our guest cabins, many of which are refurbished and authentic log cabins are over 100 years old, will take you back to a time when life was much simpler. The Y.O. Ranch has been the site of numerous ads, TV shows and motion pictures. Come visit the Y.O. Ranch, it is like “Africa in Texas!”
