I may have to try this place. Not too far from where I hunt near Childress. Home of Bob Wills, Country Western Swing Singer.
I have a couple of single shot pistols, 376 Steyr & .375JDJ Contender and a new primitive Osage bow with some stone points I need to get some blood on.

Hawkeye,
Not far at all. Chuck used to make and hunt selfbows also. two of the hogs I shot were under 20 yards which is my limit with a longbow. the whole sounder that came in on saturday night was in range with your selfbow.

I might just have to talk with him and make him a Selfbow with some Snake skins and some stone points for a hunt. I make some each year and have traded a few for hunts in Colorado, Oklahoma and South TX around Campwood. I bet that might work.

yep extremely fun! and you can hunt at your own pace, hunt hard or relaxed. He has something for everyone no matter your physical limitations. Got 100 pounds of processed hog put in the freezer today. we lost 5 front shoulders due to bone strikes and bloodshot meat. lots of smoked pork butt and pulled pork in the future!
The 375 Win did not disappoint. I know what to expect in the future for penetration and knock down. keep the shots at reasonable distance and let it fly and it will take anything that i plan on hunting.










Dave,
Unfortunately not everyone is as accomplished in the marksmanship department as you and the family, me included! I was EXTREMELY impressed with the 200gr bullet out of the 375 Winny. It worked as well as anything I've ever witnessed including some very large rifles with extreme velocities....

Great write up. Thanks for posting. I have talking to a couple of my hunting buddies about doing a hog hunt. One has never seen a live coyote in the wild. When he comes to deer hunt with me, I seem to always shoot one and he is jealous as all get out.

I had a great group of guys come in right after Dave and his family left. Two of them were hunting buddies from Washington and Idaho and the other was a brother from Dallas. They killed 6 pigs in 2 days but had some misses as well. I'm thinking I may throttle the hog hunts back to one a month just to assure everyone has plenty of opportunities. I couldn't in good conscience take someone's money and not truly believe everyone will shoot some pigs. Dave and his family are assured a spot for as long as they care to hunt with me. As I was telling Dave, I'd really like to have the same people come and hunt every year so relationships can be established and trust built both ways. I think about may or June, we will transition to night hunting over cow peas, millet, and hay grazer fields. I have a rifle set up for this that hunters can use or, I also have a predator light that could be used with a scoped handgun. I really prefer and enjoy the handgun and bow hunters. They seem to care much more about the hunt and not just the kill.
