Owner Kit Detering took the California concept of a country spa/resort, and gave it a Texas twist: Strip away the froufrou frills and replace them with the down-home friendliness and simple flair that is Texas. The result: a delightful retreat where you can enjoy healthful food, exercise, and solitude in a laid-back, unpretentious ranch setting. Brilliant! Detering chose the name “Hart & Hind” from the Old English names for buck and doe. The name is perfect, for this is a place equally comfortable for men and women. Furthermore, it is populated with native wildlife that includes white-tailed deer. And finally, the name suggests the dedication to the rejuvenation of body and soul that is the essence of a vacation here Inside this chapter you'll find detailed information on accommodations, meals, activities, amenities, nearby attractions, directions, and contact information for the ranch....

Trophy white-tailed deer genetics (both does and bucks) were introduced to the ranch and the native white-tailed deer eliminated, thus insuring tremendous antler potential. Our breeder bucks came from sires scoring 170 to 210 B&C and the does are from big south Texas game ranches.
