    Traveling to Texas, looking for suggestions on places to hunt Hogs

    Good Morning, I am going to be flying to Lubbock, TX at the end of the month for meeting and tour of some dairy farms, and am looking to extend my stay by an extra two days to try my hand at hog hunting. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for low to moderately priced outfitters somewhere within a 5-6 hour drive of Lubbock, ideally in the direction of a major airport. Not looking for a trophy hunt, just a reasonable chance of getting something in two days of hunting.

    Call the chamber of commerce at Canadian, you should check Abilene as well, either one will likely put you on to a few names.

    I didn't know that there was anything within a 5-6 hour drive of Lubbock.
    Nothing but miles and miles of nothing but miles and miles.

    Try Independence Ranch 832-419-6151 one day and three day hunts. Gonzales. Texas. Just East of San Antonio. I loved Texas. Loved the blue bells. Rest areas were a combo of rest area slash storm shelter....,now that is just plain smart.

    There are hogs around Lubbock and Abilene, the trick is finding an outfit to get you on them. They are pretty much nocturnal now so NV works best. Hard to do on a 2 day hunt. Actually your dairy farm people might put you on to an outfitter.
    Whatever!

    Just curious, which direction. My place in New Mexico is just 160 miles out of Lubbock, but I have not been there in several years. We were just starting to get hogs there when I moved up here.

    At an invitation from good friend Harter66 I hunted at the independance ranch outside of Gonzales TX spring before last. Good prices, decent food, bunkhouse accomodations and a real good time. 500 acres of fenced hunting mostly from stands with a midday of walk and stalk that I really enjoyed. No shortage of pigs and lots of exotics to observe, and shoot if you have deep pockets. Blackbuck, scimitar horned oryx, rocky mt elk, I even saw a couple of watusi cattle. Worth a look.

    Heading to Texas for some wild hog hunting? You're in for an adventure )! Consider checking out places like the Hill Country, where hogs are plentiful and hunting opportunities abound. You might also explore guided hunts on private ranches near San Antonio or around the Edwards Plateau region. But pls make sure to check local regulations and book with reputable outfitters for a safe and memorable hunt.

    Where I live only farmers have them, they don't appreciate people shooting them.
    Somehow, they manage to keep their hogs penned up.
    They never figured out how to do that in the south, I guess.
    I wish they would forget how around here.

    I had heard not too long ago, wild hogs are coming down from Canada.
    And they are the really big ones too, and have a really bad attitude.
    Around here, one much over a hundred pounds is huge.
    The ones coming down from the North might eat ours.

    I can tell you from experience. Any fence that will hold water, will keep a hog in!
