Established 1950
The oldest live whitetail exhibit in North America


Welcome to the Deer Ranch in St. Ignace, Michigan, known as the oldest live whitetail exhibit in North America. We feature dozens of native Michigan Whitetail Deer and fawns including white deer all in a natural setting which you can photograph and feed while walking along a nature trail.

Our unique Gift Shop features many deer skin products, including one of the largest Minnetonka moccasin inventories in the north!  

The Deer Ranch in St. Ignace first opened in 1950. Since then, the Deer Ranch has grown to include: whitetails, white whitetails and albino deer. You can feed, pet and photograph our deer.  We bottle feed a few fawns each year, call ahead and find out when we are feeding fawns and you might be able to help!

The Cullip Family welcomes you and your family on your next visit to the Deer Ranch.
