I'm looking for some free hogs. Just enough to complete my broadhead testing. Someplace on the way would be nice.

Took a 200#+ sow on a friends lease off 3009 on Saturday. I weight @240# and I could not drag her. 10 yard shot with a 2117 and Snuffer, she went 40-50 yards. Stevie Wonder could have followed the trail with his eyes closed. Continual drip and splatter the whole way to the pig. Taken four pigs on five trips. Not bad odds.

I am helping on a ranch that offers hog bowhunts for $75.00 a day. Ranch is 1 hour SE of San Antonio. The ranch is booking now for VERY affordable turkey bowhunts starting next month. Call me on my cell at (830) 391-0964 for all the details.

It was great. Three of us did the $75.00 night hunt and all three of us shot a pig. I could have shot several and was only on stand about 2 hours. I saw 4 different groups pigs. I will be going back later this spring with a couple of friends from out of state.

Daughtrey WMA at Choke Canyon, hour and a half SW. TPWD draw hunt so not exactly free or commonly available.

http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/huntwild...tivity=hunting

See also other draw hunts run by the Guadelupe Blanco River Authority, also not exactly free but close by. http://www.gbra.info/News/2008081201.aspx

Camp Bullis is also available, contrary to popular thought, it is not just for military.

Familiar with Camp Bullis, I'm and archery area manager for them. Hog hunting is very restrictive there no wandering to find pigs. If there was I'd be on it.
