“Big Bucks in Exotic Game”

Posted on by

I can honestly say that I’ve never been more proud or humbled by the comments we’ve heard over the last month from visitors, investors and colleagues but today something was released that I will simply say “Thank you God may I have another.”

Over the last 30 days, we’ve had visitors to the ranch from Illinois, Indiana, California, Wyoming, New York and many areas of Texas. These include current investors, prospective investors and organizations such as the San Antonio Zoo, the Houston Safari Club and The San Antonio Business Journal. Each visit is unique yet they all leave with a similar statement….”This is awesome!”

The San Antonio Business Journal obviously must have had some of the same thoughts because after their initial visit to our Mountain Home Breeding facility 2 months ago, they embarked on a multi-piece article about the exotic WildLife industry in Texas and decided that WildLife Partners would be the cover story for their print issue that was released today. You will see the cover in the beginning then the article starts on Page 15. The file is a little large so it may take a few moments to load on your device then you can scroll through the pages.

A tour of the new WildLife Partners Breeding Facility

Posted on by

Roger Festor and Chris Gilroy did an aerial tour of the newest WildLife Partner’s ranch near Pettus, TX this week. During this flyover we were also performing a count of the animals on the ranch today. As you can see from the videos below, it’s one incredible place. We anticipate our 2nd partnership being active on this ranch inside the next 30-45 days. I can’t tell you how excited we are to be a part of this effort to profit from the conservation of the amazing animals.

Another record breaking sale in Africa!

Posted on by

Just over a week ago another massive amount was paid for a Cape Buffalo in South Africa. Inala was purchased at auction by a group of three investors, one of which being Norman Adami. The group paid R168,000,000 or nearly a whopping $12,500,000 at today’s exchange rates. A beautiful animal and a very exciting auction to watch. Click in the picture of Inala below to read the article about the sale.

WildLife Partners is leading the exotic wildlife industry in Texas down a similar path to the one started in Africa in 1991 after the Game Theft Act was passed. One of our long term goals is to establish an industry structure that would help facilitate auctions like those run in South Africa today.

WildLife Partners Get its First Cover Story!!

Posted on by

Since we started on this magical venture, I’ve always had this feeling that one day we were going to end up in the news. In fact, I know I’ve made that exact statement to several of our partners, but I honestly never thought it would be this soon. A few weeks ago we were visited by a reporter from the San Antonio Business Journal. With camera man in tote, they spent several hours with Brian, Roger and I touring the ranch at our Mountain Home breeding facility. During the tour, there were numerous pictures taken and questions asked about just how this all got started and where we thought it was going. We were both humbled and honored when we received a call last week informing us we would be their cover story for the October print issue of the magazine. Below is a link to the web version of the article which was released September 12th.

There’s a slideshow of some of the pictures they took during their visit as well as a short video interview with Brian.

The Babies Just Keep Coming

Posted on by

It’s hard to drive around the ranch and not see babies everywhere.  Regardless of the pasture or the species you are around, there seems to be a mom with a baby. Over the last few weeks, we have welcomed babies across numerous species including: Kudu, Nyala, Transcaspian Urial, Black Wildebeest, Impala, Red Lechwe, Addax and Scimitar Horned Oryx.

This is what WildLife Partners is all about!!  If it wasn’t for ranches like ours, many of these species would not exist today.

Preservation…………Protection……..Profits!

Kotsi!!

Posted on by

Kotsi is the South African word for Danger and nothing says that more than the majestic Cape Buffalo.  WildLife Partners is proud to announce the arrival of our Cape Buffalo.  Last week, our initial stock were put in their new home on the WildLife Partners ranch in Mountain Home.  These Cape Buffalo are part of our 1st Partnership and we couldn’t be more excited.  We are one of only three ranches in Texas that have these incredible animals. Their size and demeanor just scream Kotsi!  Pictured below is one of our mature cows who should be calving some time soon.

Update from Brian Gilroy – Director of WildLife Partners Ranch Operations

Posted on by

My name is Brian Gilroy and I am the Director of Ranch Operations at WildLife Partners.  I still can’t believe that we are getting to do this!!!! Every day that I wake up and walk outside to build this partnership, I am reminded of just how fortunate I am. If you have not been here to visit the ranch I highly encourage you to do so. What we are building is nothing short of remarkable and I fully expect that we will achieve the goals that we have set out to accomplish.

Since April 8th, when we made our first acquisition of 50 Scimitar Horned Oryx, we have taken this industry by storm. Our name has been the talk of the Exotic Wildlife business throughout the state. We have developed outstanding relationships with ranchers and have caused virtually all of our competition to feel a serious strain on the methods they have used for so long. WildLife Partners is spearheading some very serious and monumental changes within this sector and we will continue to do so as the result of your support.

Over the last three months we have purchased 32 different species including Cape Buffalo, Giraffe, Warthogs, Red River Hogs, Markhor, Addax, Kudu, Sambar, Sable Antelope, Black Wildebeest and many many more. Currently we have 419 animals that we own as part of our initial stock. We have had approximately 30 babies and will have many more in the very near future. We are roughly 90% of the way to having all of the stock purchased for the 1st partnership. I expect the balance to be in place within 30 days.

To put this in perspective, in the last 90 days here are a few things that we have accomplished. We have hired a staff of 18 people at the ranch. They have manually cleared 270 acres of all dead cedar, moved and crushed mountains of rock and have constructed roads throughout the property. We have erected roughly 4 miles of fence (two more to go), constructed a 10,000 square foot barn and installed two miles of pipe for water troughs. The electricity to the barn should be on within a couple weeks and our online camera system will be activated at that time. Our 4 salesman have driven a combined 75,000 miles building relationships with ranchers. They have captured almost 600 head of game and logged over 100 hours of helicopter time. We are putting in 60-70 hour weeks to build this partnership and achieve what we set out to build. I can honestly say that nothing I have accomplished throughout my career has been more rewarding that what we are doing with this business.

Once again, if you have not been here to visit, please take the time to come. You will walk away with a sense of pride and excitement that you are part of an incredible conservation effort that is driven by our ability to profit while doing so.

In closing, last week we submitted an offer for an additional 1750 acres to house our next three partnerships. Our business is rapidly growing.  If you or a friend or family member is interested in joining us as a partner, don’t hesitate to let us know. We will gladly make an in person visit to you or schedule a trip for them to come here to see the ranch.

Thanks again for being a part of what we feel is an amazing adventure and I look forward to giving you more updates in the near future.

Exciting times at the WildLife Partners Ranch!

Posted on by

The last few weeks have been incredible.  Not only have we picked up a tremendous inventory of animals but we’ve had babies being born all over the ranch.  In the last 3 weeks, we’ve welcomed at least 30 newborn members into the WildLife Partners family including baby Blesbok, Black Wildebeest, Impala, Pere David, Red Lechwe, Addax and numerous Axis deer.  Over the next month, Brian Gilroy – WildLife Partners Director of Ranch Operations, expect those numbers to go up significantly.  Having all of these offspring so early into our 1st partnership’s breeding agreement gives us the potential for cash distributions much earlier than originally forecast.

In addition to the activities with the animals, we’ve had numerous visitors to the ranch recently.  Just last week, we had visitors from Pennsylvania, New York, Washington and Missouri.  Not only did they all get an extensive tour of the ranch, its facilities and livestock with Brian Gilroy and Chris Gilroy but they also each got to feed Susie our resident female giraffe.  Susie tends to pose for some great pictures!  We’re hopeful we will have our first giraffe baby in October or November.

If you would like some more information on how you can be a part of everything WildLife Partners is doing, go to our Investment page and download our literature.  It will show you how we are providing investors a great alternative to traditional investments like stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, etc.
