Nice little video about Roy Hindes I ran across in Texas Monthly... got me to wondering how many have used him and his dogs. Or, even met the man for that matter. The dude is a legend for sure

We've used him several times. One of the most humble people you will ever meet.


Very nice, quiet, soft spoken. He is 100% like the person you see in the film. They don't make them like that anymore, that's for sure

Agreed....was hoping it was much longer. It was good while it lasted. The "Porsche Cayenne" on the way to South Texas pimping was a little much but I enjoyed the rest for sure.

We have used him 3 different times. I could not have said it any better myself.

Roy has a protege by the name of Kevin Dubose. Both great men with great character. If a person can’t reach Roy to find a deer, Kevin is a dang good second choice(although I’d personally call Kevin first cus he’s a friend )

I first met Little Roy when I was in high school and have known Pam even longer. I met Big Roy back in the 80's when we were trying to find a wounded buck on the Baylor Ranch. Roy and Pam are great Christian folks and both know more about wildlife, livestock, dogs and South Texas as both were raised on ranches in the area. Robbie Hurt is Pam's brother and may be the best houndsman that I know. He is also known to have found a crippled deer or two.
The world needs more Little Roy Hindes.
Adios,
Gary

My Grandfather was friends with his dad, and we had a pasture leased on the Hindes from 1963 -1991. They were way ahead of the times in managing for big deer. Loved that place! Fell in love with those dogs back then, and glad to have some of my own now! He is a Texas Icon.

Used him and his son Quatro one year. Very friendly and one of the most humble guys I've ever met. Our wives were so impressed with their gentlemanly character. My wife still asks about the guy in the black cowboy hat. They found the deer also !!

Iconic.

And a super nice guy to boot.

It’s been a real honor to take a few tracking referrals from him over the years.

I don’t want any more dogs, but I’d buy one from him in a heartbeat....

I had the pleasure of sitting in a pick up with his Dad and pick his brain for about an hour back in the early 90's.
He was buddies with my grandfather (who died before I was born). It was a special time for me. He was sick with cancer at the time, but he never let on.

Great family.

it was $400 if he didn't find it and $600 if he did find it.


which considering the distance he had to cover sometimes to get to a place it is a bargain.

That’s not bad, I really expected it to be more considering his name.

We needed a dog last year and it was right during the S. Tx rut and on a Saturday evening-BUSY. I called him and he had just walked into his house after running his dogs for a LOOONG time and was coming down sick. I felt bad but he would NOT let me off the phone without promising to find me someone to look for the deer. He called me several times over the next several hours until he found someone who could come to the ranch. It was phenomenal the effort he (and others already mentioned on this thread) went to, to get me someone to track the deer-successfully I might add. That whole fraternity, led by Roy, is something else.

Great to hear and I suspect that to be typical of what would occur.

Roy plays a good fiddle as well. One of the nicest people you will ever meet. He did tell me once that he was a lurker on this forum.

I’ve met him a few times when we called him to run some deer for lease hunters on my fiancé’s ranch. After watching his dogs work I knew I wanted to get into deer dogs.

Used to hunt off Hwy 97 and drove by his ranch to/from the lease. I saw some humongous bucks behind that high fence that folks told me was his ranch.
