Default Clifton TX Hunting?

Anybody on the good ol Green Screen live out that way or hunt out there? I'm gonna be headin out there in a week or two to visit some of my girlfriends family land. Im told they have feeders but no cameras. Not expecting too much but figured I'd check and see if anybody had any luck out there. Deer would be nice but a piggy would do just fine. Thanks guys.

I saw some hogs feeding on the side of Highway 22 just south of Highway 56. There are around, but not sure where exactly you will be hunting at. You have a fairly good chance of seeing some.

Friend of mine who lives there got a 140" buck last week. Seems to be some pretty good deer in that area.

I remember a TTHA article from years back that identified the 12 or so big buck counties in the state of Texas. You had South Texas and the Panhandle represented and in the middle of the state Bosque County was colored in as well. There are some great deer killed in Bosque County each year. The main problem is there are not a lot of big ranches and bucks are not allowed to mature. You should see good numbers with potential for big deer depending on your neighbors.

Hey Alan,

I hunt off of hwy 22 just NW of Cranfils Gap. Where I am its kinda spotty with big bucks and hogs, but just up the road 2 miles they have plenty of hogs.
This year has been good since we ran off the four wheeler fools that were on the lease
the last few years. I have seen a few 120 to 140's in the area. There are several high fence places around. So you might get a chance at a stray exotic that gets loose after all of the rain this weekend. Give me a holler if i can answer any questions. Let me know if there is any good eatin places in Clifton, im getting sick of the Horney Toad in the Gap and Meridian only has a mexican and chineese food after 7.
Good luck Brother

I used to hunt double creek farms out that way. Used to work for em to. Lots of deer out there. And my buddy shot around a 155 out in the area last year. Not exactly what it scored but close.

I love me some Hory Toad! There is a new place called Tuggles in Meridian. Pretty decent food.

Hopefully DR D will chime in since he lives in Clifton, but I really like Bosque county for both deer and hogs.

Im hunting through Byron Carlson, I'm not quite sure whether they own it or just run the place but its the Dahl House (Not sure on the spelling). He was talking about the work they have been doing on the land and I offered to come out and help. He called my girlfriend later that day and told us to bring the toys because we might as well hunt while were out there.

I looked up the Dahl House on google and it shows an address for a place smack dab in the middle of town so I dont know if thats wrong or if they own some more land in the area. He's told me about clearing cedar and huge burns in the past and also added that they have feeders set up and running, So it doesnt sound like something that would be right in the middle of town.

I'm hoping to get out there as soon as we have a decent weather weekend. My girlfriend has never been hunting or really had much interest in it so I think this might be a good way to sneak it in and try to spark some interest.

I know exactly where that's at. You should be good on deer and hogs both. A lot of our hogs are nocturnal but they can be had. That place is on the way out to my house from town.

I just got back from Bosque County and stopped through Clifton on the way home for a bite to eat. Y'all need to stop at 'Johnny's Place' for some lunch. Some darn good eats right there now.

Yes sir! Ribs, fried catfish, chicken fried steak and the fixins. We all topped our meal off with some peach cobbler and vanilla ice cream. Now it's back to eating protein shakes and grilled chicken for awhile.

I hunt about 20 min. East of Cliffton.
I have hogs a plenty!!!! and haven't seen to many deer this year, probably because of the pigs...
I know the hunting gets better and better the further West you head out of Hwy 6. i.e. Cliffton and Meridian so you should get a chance at something
