About Us

I am James Andrew Whittenburg V (JAW V).

I am the Owner/Manager of Las Catarinas LLC.  Las Catarinas Ranch (Exotic Hunting Ranch) was established in 2002 by my me and late father.  Las Catarinas Ranch is about 1000 acres with just the perimeter high fence.  I’m a worldwide avid hunter and conservationist that has inner-twined my 5th generation Texas family ranching history skills with raising (high quality & high-end genetics) exotic wildlife to breed, raise, and to hunt.

We have many exotics on our land including Pere David Stag, Red Deer, Elk, Fallow, Sika, Axis, Blackbuck, Whitetail, Rhea, Mouflon Rams, Nilgai, Aoudad and many more.  To make your hunt more enjoyable, we allow FREE UNLIMITED VARMINT HUNTING till time allows, with any Exotic hunt purchase.   Most of our business is from repeat customers and word of mouth.  We don’t invest much in marketing costs so we can pass the savings to you on the hunt.  I, personally, make sure that every hunter and guest that comes here leaves with 100% satisfaction.  I do not accept 99.99% satisfaction and will make sure you have a memorable trip and you are a good reference.

I can cater the hunt to your specific need.   We do safari style hunts, blind hunts, stalk and shoot.   I use the help of my guides:   Big Angel and Little Angel and of course my blood sniffing dog “Emma”.   We provide proper guidance so you harvest the right animal and if injured, you have many resources to help locate your animal.    We have had almost 100% success rate.   We are high fenced.  Which means you have the opportunity for seeing the animals and possibly a good clean shot opportunity as well.  We don’t force shoot and kill.  We encourage you to only shoot when you are ready and have a clear shot.

Texas has the most private hunting lands in the US.   So, you have many options to hunt.  What separates my hunt from other hunts is the pricing, customer service and success rate.   I am not an outfitter but ranch owner.  I am not commission based.   To me, hunting should be fun, memorable and affordable.  It should not be killing only.   That is why I raise my animals and I would love for them to be harvested in the most ethical manner.  Everyone on my ranch is welcome regardless of Gender, Age, Ethnicity and Hunting Skills.  We have had many 1st time hunters made here on our land.
