Default Blue Collar Bowhunting

Went on a 2 day bow hunt over Memorial Day weekend at Blue Collar Bowhunting near Floresville, and for $200 per day, this place is awesome. For that price, you get 2 hogs and one axis, blackbuck or sika doe, or a ram in place of the doe, and he has plenty. The young man who has the place is Ace, and he could not be more accommodating, from taking you to and from the stand and taking care of the animals you shoot, to having the bbq pit fired up for you before getting back to camp. He was truly a great host. Me and a buddy both ended up with hogs, saw some good axis and blackbuck, and the rams, but did not get the right shot. With it being as green as it was, animals were still coming to the corn and we had a great time. I will definitely be back and highly recommend this place for a good hog/meat hunt.

This is the original KJO, right? Run by Ace and Keith's son Wade. I plan to make a run back down from NC in late winter, if finances will permit. The most fun I ever had in one week was on a 4 day hunt there 3 years ago when it was still the KJO.

Saw plenty of blackbucks running around. It is only doe, Rams and hogs. It is definitely worth the trip. Ace is a real good guy.

Were blinds and feeders already established or do you go set up your own blind?

Blinds and feeders are already set up and I believe the place is a little over four hundred acres.

Some appeared to have nice curls on them. I only saw them from a distance.

I probably hunted there a dozen times when Keith owned it . the trick to that place unless they changed it is to hunt drive through holes in the fences and near water . Id go back in a minute if they had exotic bucks but cant see the trip from Virginia for does and rams .

I would imagine its a 2 day minimum, which would make the $400 make sense... $200 per day

Yeah, I re-read the OP's post, I missed it $200/day. Yep, sorry.

Ace is no longer there, not even sure they are still open. Ace's dad is a close friend of mine. He told me yesterday that Ace is no longer there.
