Some buddies and I are giving serious thought to starting a hunting operation. We've been doing it for just ourselves and some farmers for the past few years and thought maybe it was time to start it as a way to make a bit of money and be able to kick some back to the farmers for the damage done to their crops. Do you want the choice of camping and saving a few bucks, or would you want the hunt cost to include food and lodging? Would you want to hunt behind dogs the whole time? Or would spot and stalk on water holes be something interesting to try, or various other methods over bait? The dog hunts would mean you had to walk and dispatch the hog with a knife after the bulldogs have caught it and one of us has legged it for you. Most guys who run dogs do a set fee of $200 per day and a kill fee of $1/lb(you will see the scale and watch the hog be weighed, none of this, "He looks like 500lbs to me" crap.) Or would you rather have a daily guide fee and a set price on the per hog side of the ledger? How much are most of you willing to spend? I know I spend alot of time surfing hunting pages and such and often what they are selling would not appeal to me for one reason or another. So I want your opinion on what your perfect hunting trip would be with Hogs as your main focus? Now when you go on something like this is that all you want to do is hunt hogs? Or would a chance to spend an afternoon fishing be inviting? Help me brainstorm here, give me an idea of what you'd like to do. What you'd be willing to spend. If you'd rather do your own accomadations or have a choice. Right now we have a motel nearby with reasonable rates and a restraunt attached to it. An all inclusive package is going to include accomadations there and breakfast and supper there. So let me know what you think and help me generate some ideas.
