So I won a 3 day hog hunt in Texas. All paid for except hog gutting and cleaning. They wont let you do it your self. They charge $1 per pound. Has anyone hog hunted in Texas and is it worth going? Its at the Independence Ranch.

$1 per pound seems steep, does that include taking the hair off? Just curious as I have never hog hunted.

That is a good question. I know when i lived in southern GA hogs could easily 350lbs plus

This came up in the 24Hour thread above and has been brought up on here too so I would say they are legit if you want a hog hunt.

$50 to process any pig  up to  50 lbs   then $1  lb  after   that

 

so if most  texas  hunts  are   350- 400  dollars  for  2  hogs  - 50 lbers    add 100   so the hunt  will cost  - approx.  500 -  do you have  to tip  butcherer

 

so if you feel the free meals and lodging  makes  up  for  that  part of the 3 day package-  hope  you eat a good 3 meals  a day-  do you tip the cook ?

 

so if its  a free   $ 799  dollar  package

 

i'd be shooting  2 -5   -50lbders  and call it  good-   does that make the trip worth  while?

 

 

1,000 miles each  way ===  30 hrs of driving

 

 

have fun---I'd  pass      look for a east  new mexico hunt



Proper meat care equals the tastiest table fare!

Sounds like a scam. I would never agree to a program like that.
