Default TBH Trad Hog Hunt 2017

Easter in 2017 will be April 16. Looks like the best dates for our hunt will be Friday March 31 thru Sunday April 1.

Texas S has proven to be a successful venue and I propose that we return there for 2017. I haven't found any other location that offers a better set-up for our needs, but if anyone knows of any, let me know and we can consider it.

12 hunters worked out well as a group size for this year, so I propose to limit the size to 12 for 2017. I would like to give first preference to this years group and if any of them can't make it, open it up to prior year participants.

This is a list of the 2016 participants.

1. Phillip Fields
2. EnW
3. Featherflinger
4. Chackworth
5. Hunter Todd
6. TxMark
7. Chunky
8. Little John
9. Jake the snake
10. Hunter
11. Bisch
12. Bowhuntvideo

This is very much a group effort so if anyone has any recommendations as to how to make it better, please let me know, either on this thread or by PM, and we can discuss it with the group. When I set up the first trip in 2014, I was hoping that it would catch on and we could continue it as a tradition. I am honored to have shared a campfire with you guys over the past 3 hunts and hope to continue it for many years. (in spite of the 20 hour drive.)

I just got an email back from Dale at Texas S. He is out of town and will check his books when he gets back in town on Sunday, but he thinks Mar 31- Apr 2 is already booked. The next weekend Apr 7 - 9 when the Hill Country Shootout is normally held, and the next weekend Apr 14 - 16 is Easter weekend. What weekend do you all prefer if Mar 31 - Apr 2 is, in fact, already booked? I'm thinking either Mar 24 - 26, or Apr 21-23.

The March 31-Apr 2 weekend would be ideal for me. And my 2nd choice weekend would be Apr 28-30. Those weekends would keep me from having to find coverage for work.

Looks like Dale has already booked a party for Mar 31 - Apr 2. I'm leaning toward Apr 21-23.

Hi friends. Just updating everyone I broke my ankle 4th of July weekend,and now I have to get my ankle fused sometime in Nov or dec . It is still a long way out but the recovery is 3 to 6 months if all goes well I'll still be able to make this hunt. I never really put my business on the internet but but I consider most of the people on this thread close friends so please pray for a speedy recovery
