The following are several links to other sites of interest, either related to this site

Jay Novacek's Upper 84 Former Dallas Cowboy Jay Novacek, invites you to be a guest on his 3500

hunting for one or more of 20 different native and exotic big game species. They also feature upland game bird hunting and can get you in touch with some
great duck and goose hunting.
Nakuru Our main connection with exotic livestock farms and ranches in Mexico. Nakuru is an excellent operation with international connections. We do quite a lot of business with them. This site's in Spanish, but AltaVista.com offers a nifty translator service which does a serviceable job. Hopefully we'll get an English-language mirror site up before too long.
Heart-Bar Deer Farm Another operation we work closely with, Heart-Bar has one of the largest Fallow herds in the state. They've selectively bred their animals for two different strains-- high-quality venison stock, and trophy antler development. If you're looking for Fallow, you need look no further.
Texas Parks and Wildlife
Department This is a very thorough site put together by the Texas Parks and
Wildlife Department, which has a tremendous amount of information not only on the wildlife
that abounds in Texas, but also on hunting, fishing and recreation in general.
Exotic Wildlife Association "Practicing Conservation Through
Commerce Since 1967" The EWA is North America's oldest and most successful
organization of non-native wildlife breeders and managers. Founded in Texas in 1967, the EWA
is now recognized as the leading advocate and defender of animal-owner rights and for-profit
species conservation. Today's EWA represents Members throughout the U.S. and in several
foreign countries. EWA Members have propagated and protected some of the largest populations
of privately owned wild ungulates in the world. In fact several species, such as the barasingha (a
deer native to India) and the scimitar-horned oryx (an antelope native to north Africa), are now
more numerous on EWA Member-ranches than they are in their entire countries of

World Wildlife Fund Known worldwide by its panda
logo, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is dedicated to protecting the world's wildlife and wildlands.
The largest privately supported international conservation organization in the world, WWF has
sponsored more than 2,000 projects in 116 countries and has more than 1 million members in the
U.S. alone. WWF directs its conservation efforts toward three global goals: protecting
endangered spaces, saving endangered species, and addressing global threats. From working to
save the giant panda, tiger, and rhino to helping establish and manage parks and reserves
worldwide, WWF has been a conservation leader for more than 36 years. Blaschke
Exotics supports their noble preservation and conservation efforts, and encourages everyone
to do likewise.
The Ultimate Ungulate PageThis page is, to put it bluntly,
simply amazing. Brent Huffman has spent untold hours putting together the most authoritive site
on hoofed mammals on the web. While the endeavor is far from complete, there's an astounding
amount of information here, and a plethora of species that are mind-bogglingly obscure, to say
