These are the guys out of Pearsall I think. A friend of mine is trying to book a hunt for a group of us in the future. I'm not sure how many are going to commit. These guys don't allow mech. heads. They do have nice prices though.

I have been there before. The place is at up with hogs!! I don't think i would go back to the place. It is 200 acres, and the ground is bare, I mean there is nothing at all for the animals to eat. There are no feeders there. Gerald runs a feed rout past your stand and then you just pick out what you want to shoot. The animals actually come running to the corn.

I went when it first opened and will never go back. The place is small with not a lot of brush as inside the high fence is a lot of open field. Gerald and my group did not hit it off as he needs to work on his people skills. Now keep in mind this has been several years ago.

I don't know, 1st impresions mean alot. Like I said, I haven't been but there is a chance I may. I have been burned on a few day hunts. I know this, I have sure learned what not to do for my place.

There is a place in sabinal called the true love ranch. I went one time and it was great but I had heard later the prices were going up. When I went it was $85.00/day with unlimitted hogs.

There is a guy that lives in Sabinal who lets you hunt on his land really cheap. I think it might be $25 a day but only afternoons. He has a few feeders that you can set up by. I didn't get his name but his tel.# is 830-591-3281. He also has a post on the bulletin board at the big sportsman's shop in Sabinal in the Archery dept.

I haven't had any problems with Gerald other than his has a hard time hearing you. I have been to both his old place and his new one. His new one is nothing like the old place, But iI do believe it is better. The last time we went I killed an Aoudad and a hog my first evening. I still recommend the place.

I just talked with gerald and it seems his story is a little different. Here is what he told me

"Do me a favor since you are signed up to talk on there , tell him that I wanted to know why he forgot to tell everyone what a bad shot he is and that he wounded a fallow. It`s not that they didn`t have chances at game. Just because they didn`t kill everything they wanted doesn`t mean they didn`t see animals. Bill and his buddies have hunted with me for about 5 years. They did a Fri. afternoon through Sun. morning deal, I guess because he hunted on 3 different days, he called it a 3 day hunt. He forgot to tell everybody about his poor shooting skills and that he wounded a fallow doe and killed a small pig, another guy killed a fallow doe and a couple of good eating size hogs were killed "

Always two sides to each story!

I Personally Have Not Had Any Trouble With Gerald, I Have Been To Both Places And Have Taken Two Spotted Fallow And Three Pigs.
The Accomadations At His New Place Are Not As Nice As The First, But They Work Just Fine. I Would Go Back.

Maybe I should not have said I don't care much for him, that was a wrong statement. Every one is different and handles them selves and the way they do things different than others. I was having some personal difficulties when i posted that I did not care for him, and that was not correct, so I am sorry if I offeneded Gerald or any one else in any way.

He does have lots of mid size hogs , but there is also some huge hogs there if your willing to let the young ones walk by.
This was shot Dec 21st 2006 .
