Hey Guys, This is my first post. I joined to hopefully learn more about Texas hunting, exotics and feral animals in particular. I'm a meat hunter, not just the normal if its brown its down kind of meat hunter though. I'm very into cooking wild game and doing it in a ways that are out of the box for the normal hunting crowd. I like to take things that normally are looked down on or ignored in the hunting world and really elevate them. You can look at my Instagram account if you want to see what kind of stuff I do. I'm @maneatswild. I've been hunting and fishing all my life and have passed it on to my kids at very early ages. Anyway I've decided to start expanding my hunting horizons and doing some hunting and fishing trips out of the normal Midwest stuff I've done forever. I'm looking for different things to inspire some new cooking. I have fished a lot in Florida and Hawaii, but that was mostly pre-kids!!! So Ive booked on hog hunt in Oklahoma coming up in May. That got me thinking about what would be next. I'm on shoestring budget with kids and my wife is a full time student right now. So here's my question:
I've done alot of looking into exotics hunts in Texas and it seems most are really pricey and you stay in big lodge with full accomodations or you hunt in a small pen of 80acres. What I really would like to find is some place where we could go camp out or stay in basic bunkhouse type amenities and hunt some feral sheep, or goats, or something else we don't have up here in Missouri. Does any such place exist? If not what would be the cheapest type hunt to get started? I don't really want high fence and I don't care about trophies really, although a set of horns or antlers to remember the trip by are cool.
