I responded to this ad on craigslist about Hog hunting at a guy's place out by Waller, Texas...

Price was not bad at 150 a person plus a 60.00 feed charge per group (Unlimited hogs and no kill fees)

He does not have a big place but, he does have a great set up. He has a feeder on one side of the property (no LED lights here) and he has hand thrown feed on the other side by the ponds. (he comes out every morning and evening to throw out feed throughout the field, and not just in one spot)

A week before my hunt I asked if I could come out and take a look around, and he said no problem. When I got there he drove me all around and showed me every inch of his set up and was a wealth of knowledge. He showed be where the hogs come in and out of his property (several locations), and where they go to the water.

He has a nice 2 man high stand on a small field where he hand throws feed, and on top of the stand he has 2 NICE infrared LED lights that light up the entire field at night. (Picture below)

I had an injury and had to cancel on him, but he had no issues letting me reschedule. Once I finally got there he drove us out, and even set up a portable ground blind for us because the forecast called for scattered showers. This way if it started raining we could move from the high stand into the covered blind.

GREAT SERVICE!

Right when we were setting up 3 deer came into the field saw us and ran away. About an hour after we settled more deer came into the field. Over all we counted 35 deer and 10 of them 6 point bucks or better! Too bad you can't hunt deer at night :-(

Anyway, unfortunately the hogs did not come (the wind picked up and it started to rain, at this time 3 deer bedded down right in front of us in the tall grass. So I only assume the hogs did the same somewhere else).

One of the best things about this hunt, besides all the deer, is the guarantee.. If you do not kill a hog then you get to come back until you do kill one. I will be rescheduling my next hunt for just after Christmas.

Great service and even without a shoot, was a great time.. Also I forgot to mention I took one of my work clients and he loved it!

Call Robert Burns 281 725 1011 if you are looking for a hog hunt in the Houston area.

You can't argue with the terms and service.

For deer hunts he said 150 gets you in then 100 a point for trophy deer. On meat theer he can work a deal.
