FYI...see a lot of questions on hog hunting Texas....I just had this ranch recommended to me. Thought I'd pass it on as I don't need to pay for hogs. It does sound like fun, though. I kinda like their take on .223, will stir up some consternation I reckon. :uhoh: They probably wouldn't mind H&H Hunter's .470 Nitro double rifle, I'm thinkin'. ;)

Their house their rules I guess. I have personally never paid a dime to hunt hogs as most people around here want them gone.

I went on a pig hunt for fun, shot 3 in a day. It was fun. I have plenty on my own place, but I might do it for the fun. However, lots of folks from out of state have asked about hog hunts in Texas. Just figured I'd throw this one out as a choice since another Texas motorcycle rider seemed to think the place was great and liked the owners. Never been there myself, so if you go and you don't like it, well, it was just a suggestion based on another's report. :D

Seems like a rip off to me, but what do I know?

I didn't have a problem taking down hogs with 5.56. I guess my hogs weren't as big and mean as theirs. My hogs were about 60 miles south from theirs so perhaps they were not as tough as the ones up north.

I suppose if you're from somewhere else you might consider this a vacation and the price would not be too bad.

Having seen some of the people who show up at these kind of places I can understand why they have low recovery rate on hogs shot with 223. A lot of non hunters who come out to just kill something with their $3,000 AR carbines that they shoot once a year at 25 yard indoor range. Damn couch ninjas who can't shoot strait and just blasting away with 30 round mags don't get too many hogs in the field.

125 seemed kinda cheap to me. That's total cost until, not if, you kill something. Only thing that adds up is the room and board. If you have land with hogs like I do, great. But, if not, in Texas it's pay to play. Hog hunting is cheap. You should check out some deer leasing sometime. :rolleyes: Pay by the point/inch. A decent buck can set you back 5 or 6 grand or more. Anyone can bag a trophy buck in this state if he has enough money. I've killed a couple of doe on "cheap" day leases, that's about it.

And, BTW, have you checked out land prices lately? They're going stratospheric in some areas. Not real sure many folks will be able to buy land in the future if it keeps up. Leasing will be the only way. You won't get ME on public land after anything, but small game and waterfowl, personally.

If you're going to hunt in Texas, avoid Allen Morehouse and Heart of Texas Guided Hunts. These unprofessinal clowns will ruin your trip.
