You have a google image of this place? I'd like to see how many acres it is.

I hope the poster above you wasn't the guy who passed on my place for this "free" hunt. I told the guy on the phone to beware.

OH MY.....

I just stumbled on their Ministry page.

Quote:
God can use anyone who is willing to do his work, and this became our realization when we asked Him, “but what can we do Father? We are in the Texas Hog Hunting business, and how could you use us?” This plan of action and website was His answer.
He has directed our family to take our business and be about His business of winning the lost for Him. He has given us this plan. As of this writing, we are also making our Hog Hunting Ranch available to the Men’s Church Groups of the Christian Faith, and doing so at a deeply discounted rate. This is not about denomination, but about Christ and helping you to be “living proof of a loving God to a watching world.”
Quote:
Do you have a brother, father, son, friend, or neighbor that you have invited to go to church, but they have continually refused? Have you tried to witness to your lost friends or family to no avail? Have they refused to hear about Christ through the traditional means? This is where the Lord has led us to help fill the gap.
They may have continually refused to go to church with you, but would they like to go on a hog hunt with you, and do so at a really good price? This will give you an opportunity to spend several days of travel and hunt with them, and let them see Christ through you. The goal being, to win your lost friend to Christ.

I bet it’s the same place. It wouldn’t surprise me if they’re buying them and then turning them loose in the the high fence.

His rear may be getting some miles in prison before long. He has way over stretched the legalities for a while now. Jacking with tax-free status will get one in trouble fast.

Yep this is it. He’s been doing it way too long

I agree. How he’s still in business is huge mystery but when you lie about everything, then I guess you keep going until you get caught. AGAIN

That’s exactly what he does. He’ll tell the seller he’s putting them in pens but they are turned loose immediately. Wild, tame, show and whatever kind of pig is on that place

Haha. He’s been busted once before but is right back to his old ways. I’m sure tpwd will come down on him again.

I’ve hunted there, food was good and plenty of pigs- counted over 100 one night while in the stand. Your mileage may very, but I had no complaints.

What I saw out there is a variety of both feral and domestic pigs, the few I got were feral but the 400+ pound ones I saw looked domesticated.

FINALLY!!! I just got my email and I won a free hunt!! Who is coming with me? All you have to do is pay $299 and I have to pay $199 and we'll have to pay for $50/hog for skinning $1/lb over 50lbs, plus $50 minimum "tip" for the guides, but other than that it's free. I'm booked for July 32nd.

From court paperwork I wanna hunt BLACK PANTHER OMG LOL

advertise on eBay, and other internet sites, for hunts for exotic animals such as wild
blackbuck antelope, legendary Muy Grande whitetail buck, legendary “Flying Devil
Rams,” scimitar-horned antelope, bison buffalo, fallow buck, axis buck, sika buck,
red stag, rams, elk, ibex, javelina, water buffalo, Rio Grande turkey, mountain lion,
State v. Candelaria, et al
Plaintiff’s Original Petition Page 5 of 16
black panther, and/or zebra on Defendants’ ranch in Gonzales, Texas, when not all
of such animals are on the ranch, when the size, weight, and amount or concentration
of the actual animals encountered is misrepresented, and when many animals are not
wild but almost tame. See State’s Exhibit 1 (Affidavit of Gerard Galvan);
