  • Hog Ram Combo Hunts in Texas – Dave and Friends find Success

    Hog Ram Combo hunts in Texas –

    Dave and a couple of his friends from Colorado recently were in camp to take on a hog ram combo hunt. On the first afternoon we spent the evening stalking rams and everyone was successful on their ram quest taking 3 nice rams. The paint was herded up with some goats and Dave showed great patience as it took over an hour to stalk and get a clear shot on this nice paint ram. The Texas dall was in a big heard of rams  and Aileen made a great shot on the move at 125 yards and put her ram down in his tracks. The Black ram was another long stalk and we got him to finally stop and give Darren a shot and he fell in his tracks as well. After the rams were skinned we headed over to a ranch we have been seeing some pigs. We hunted mostly safari style at night with a spotlight and we managed to take 5 pigs the first night and 3 the second night. They also enjoyed cruising looking at all the other animals on the ranch including many African species and all of the common exotics. Thanks Dave for putting this hog ram hunt together and we look forward to having you guys back in October.

  • Hog Ram Combo Hunts in Texas – Bart Takes Care of Business

    Hog Ram Combo Hunts in Texas

    Bart the young man with the Texas Dall pictured above was recently given our Hog Ram Combo Hunts in Texas  as a Christmas gift. We started out hunting his ram and we found a dall that was good for his hunt as we drove through the pasture. We made a plan to stalk in and try to get a shot on the ram. As we made the stalk I lost sight of the ram and could not tell if he spooked or just moved out of sight. I told him lets go ahead and stalk on around to the road and as we did we looked up a lane in the brush and he was there. We still needed to get to a better lane to get a shot. As Bart worked around to the opening the ram was getting ready to run but before he could Bart made an excellent shot and dropped him. After the Ram was done and skinned Bart spent the rest of his  Hog Ram Combo Hunts in Texas chasing pork and found success. Congrats Bart on a good hunt we look forward to hunting with you in the future.

  • Hog Hunts in Texas – Andrew Pulls the Blade

    On a recent hog hunts in Texas we were hosting a group of guys from out west. We had been hunting by normal methods out of blinds and using the night vision gear over baited areas. The guys had asked before they came about hunting with dogs and we had planned to spend one of the nights of their Hog hunts in Texas running dogs for hogs. After a slow start with the dogs we moved to an area we knew pigs were coming off the river bottom and hoped we would get on a pig. As soon as we hit the area we could tell the dogs were excited over something. We quickly got out and listened and right away we had a good sound coming from the dogs so we released the catch dogs. As they ran to the fight we had no idea what was about to go down! We ran blindly through the thickest brush on the ranch and finally caught up to the fight where the catch dogs were doing there job. After grabbing the hog we directed Andrew to hit him low in the heart after some surgical like stabbing from Andrew the hog expired. Now we were a couple hundred yards into this thick brush and it just got worse from there. We had caught a dog owners worse nightmare as far as pigs go. 150 pounds of solid muscle with 3-4 inch cutters. As we headed out with the big boar in tow we found one of the dogs badly cut laying in the trail. We quickly scooped him up and headed for the truck. Caine one of our guides had leashed the 2 catch dogs and was in the lead and another guide was carrying the badly wounded dog and the 3 hunters and myself were carrying the boar out. We finally got to the truck and it didn’t look good for one of the best dogs in the pack. We quickly stapled his wounds and got him some water and hoped for the best. We still had 2 dogs in the woods and began to track them using their GPS collars. From the hand held device we knew we were standing right on top of one dog but he wasnt moving and we feared the worst. We finally caught movement and found one of the dogs and he was gut badly in the throat. luckily his collar had been in the way or he might have been much worse. After a quick patch job on him he was fine and seemed to be out of the woods. The last dog was still out there and We feared the worse on him since it appeared he was close to where we had originally killed the pig. As we went in and found him we knew right away the hog had gotten the best of him and there was nothing we could do to help him except go ahead and put him out of his misery. The hog had broken his neck and cut him badly opening up his stomach from behind the shoulder about 1/2 way back his abdomen. Man what a race of emotions we had on this night. From the highest adrenaline rush getting to the hog to being down in the dumps over the dogs getting the short end of the stick on the deal. We decided to call it a night after that and the next morning we woke to good news both dogs who survived the fight where up and happy to eat their breakfast!. Congrats Andrew on a great boar!! Hunting with dogs is an awesome experience but it is not for the weak of heart.

  • Night Vision Hog hunts in Texas – The Colorado Group Scores Big

    Night Vision Hog hunts in Texas –

    We had a group in from Colorado this past weekend for some Night Vision Hog Hunts in Texas and for some regular Hog hunts in Texas. We started the weekend off with some steaks on the grill in sloppy weather and wind. The first night we saw a couple of hogs but couldn’t get any shots on them. I knew with a break in the weather in store for day 2 our fortune would change. We made our way back to the ranch we were hunting as we took the guys to the blinds we spotted multiple hogs and were able to get a couple killed. The hunters sat in blinds for a couple of hours and managed to kill some hogs. At dark we ran to town and ate dinner. When we got back we split off and put 2 hunters in blinds and 2 of the hunters we took and walked through areas we had fed looking for hogs with the night vision. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts we decided to put the hunters in the blinds with night vision. I guess there were to many exotics on the roads eating our corn and we would push them and scare the hogs off. So after a long night we did manage to get 5 hogs down. The next afternoon the guys wanted to try to get some Axis Does and so we ran down to one of our ranches and they sat in the blinds. At dark we drove a little and managed to get 3 Axis doe down. We then decided to go back up to the ranch and hunt night vision for pigs. Again we sat two hunters in the blinds and took two guys to stalk with the night vision and Thermal equipment. We walked through the first area and came down to the end of the road and there was a giant boar in the road. The guys got on him and shot… Well one shot. The other gun we forgot to take the filter off and the hunter couldn’t see anything. So we ended up wounding the big boar and couldn’t find him. We started back down to go to another area. After a long walk we were back at the house. About that time we noticed a large group of hogs at the water trough and the guys got set up. Bryan let loose with the AR and emptied the clip on them. 1 hog lay dead next to the water. So one wounded and one dead the guys were worn out and ready for some sleep. We were down to the last night and we had 6 pigs and 3 axis doe down. We went back to the ranch we had hunted the first night and managed to get a couple of hogs down during daylight and then got one in the blinds. It was round 4 of night vision and we needed to have a good night at it. Well We made it down to an area and saw 2 pigs in the road. The 2 hunters got ready and we counted them down and boom 2 dead hogs… or so we thought. When we got down to them one had gotten up and ran off. So it was off to the next spot. As we approached we could see hogs in the road when I put the thermal on them I could tell there were a bunch of hogs in the road. The hunters readied again and unloaded on them. This time there were no pigs down. We went on and were not able to get on any more hogs. So we went back to get the guys out of the blinds and Bryan had taken a nice Axis Doe. So after a couple days the guys had taken 9 hogs and 4 Axis Doe. Not a bad couple days of hunting.
