In 1880, Captain Charles A. Schreiner, merchant, banker, philanthropist, pioneer rancher, and Texas Ranger, purchased the Y.O. Ranch Headquarters, brand and cattle from Taylor & Clemens with the profits from driving 300,000 longhorns from Texas to Dodge City.

Throughout six generations, the ranch is notable for many historical firsts, including leasing land for hunting to diversify ranching income, founding the Texas Longhorn Breeders’ Association, and establishing a registry for Texas Longhorns that brought the legendary breed back from the brink of extinction, and introducing exotic hoof stock that earned the ranch a reputation world-wide as “America’s Original Game Ranch”.

The Community


The lodge

The Lodge is a true showplace with a 40-foot ceiling and thick walls of native cut stone with faded red planking from a Hill Country barn. Features include a massive stone fireplace, a turn-of-the-century wood bar, and chandeliers crafted from wagon wheels.

The Chuckwagon

The heart of the ranch, the Chuckwagon, is comprised of the restaurant, banquet room, offices, three half baths and a commercial kitchen.


Available lodging for guests includes four old log and frame cabins with historical intricacies such as Kerr County’s first schoolhouse, an 1850’s stagecoach stop and the first post office from Boerne, along with separate rooms and  suites throughout the headquarters.

The Amphitheater

The Amphitheater is one of the newer additions to the ranch’s list of available entertaining venues. Able to accommodate many guests, the Amphitheater is the perfect location for concerts, conventions, and outdoor gatherings.

Land tracts, varying from 100 to 178 acres, are a perfect, manageable size, yet large enough for recreation and hunting. The gently rolling terrain is usable and studded with countless live oaks and ample cover for wildlife. Many of the tracts offer incredible, unobstructed, long-distance views with multiple build-site options. Electricity and paved road access will be available to each tract. Water well logs in the immediate area suggest that the water table is around 400-450 feet deep.


With an established infrastructure, the Y.O. Ranch Headquarters is a notable distinction for native and exotic hunting. The ranch features both quality and numbers of both native wildlife and exotic wildlife. An innovative animal conservation program has assured strength of these herds and made the legendary Y.O. Ranch Headquarters a world leader in exotic game preservation.
