Well we went out for our hogs and rams last Saturday I took my step brother this time. Was his first time hunting. He's wanted to start hunting for a couple years not but his dad wouldn't let him. So i convinced him this would be a good way to see if he could actually kill before I get him too involved. Also took my father in-law who hasn't been hunting in over 40 years. Went with some friends too. Had a good time.

I love hog hunting!
I own a small ranch in Tx, a d we have a real problem with hogs. They destroy everything they touch, fences, pens, livestock feeders, ect. We go out a couple of times a year and hunt them. In Texas, it is legal to hunt hogs (considered varmints) at night, and one of my friends is trying to talk me into NVG's for night ops.

Many people hunt them with dogs and pistols. Personally, I set up a blind and hunt with AR-15's.
The smaller hogs, under 100 lbs or so, make great eating. They are good to roast whole or butcher into your favorite pork cuts.
Larger hogs we make into sausage.

Looks like y'all had a good time out there!

Cheers!

Just fine. We don't take any shots over 100 yards and we only do head shots. They drop like a stone.

I use Federal 69gr Match usually but have dropped a few with M193.

Nice...this would be an awesome experience.

Btw, did you eat the ram meat? And does that have a goat taste to it? I like goat meat.

It's a good time. For the price, these guys do it right. I was undecided about going for almost 2 years now, after talking with MosinRob about it, and his experiences there, I booked. Nothing like taking a 300lb pig with a bow ($350). They take you over to the Island in the am, the hunt takes place on the island (150 acres). Your not walking up to the pigs in a pen and shooting them, they are out on the island, roaming around.. They bring the pigs over the night before, or that morning because they will swim back to the mainland eventually, and it's a far swim. They have local butchers in the area that will come and take the hog/ram and butcher to your liking. Butcher services were reasonable, I am paying $150.00 for;

Bacon
Sausage
Hams
Ribs
Pork Chops

all cryovac'd in 1-2lb packages.

Someones gonna kill the pig and butcher it, add all kinds of chemicals and sell it to you in store. OR, you can do it yourself, load up your freezer AND be a part of the process..

bacon....

I don't know what kind of hogs these were, but feral hogs (all over the southern half of the country, and getting closer), are mean dangerous animals and relatively hard to hunt!

Hey Rob! I'm wondering about doing this soon, and using my Colt Walker. Did you stay overnight prior to the hunt, or just drive real early to get there?

Hey Rosey, you could definitely use the walker. I was planning on using a muzzleloader but it was raining so I switched. We usually drive out in the morning. Next year we may stay over.
