Screen dig, surface hunt, hand dig February 25, 2017 3 miles north of Freer, Texas.
The host is Glen Smith (Smitty) Texas Brush Country Outfitters.
Only 10 spots are available and I am sure 4 have gone already.
I am not a professional digger, neither is Smitty. I can say I know what I am doing looking for heads and Smitty is better than I. Judging all of his collections, from this place, he knows a lot better than he lets on. Smitty is a rough and tough rancher gray haired 65 years of Texas. He is a wonderful host and gentleman. I have no doubts all who go on this dig, will leave considering him a friend. I have hunted this ranch I reckon now the second decade. Smitty has grown close to my family.
With that being said; The dig is machine dig, surface hunt, hand dig whatever you want. We arrive noon on Friday and unload our gear at the lodge. We can make arrangements for supper. Maybe a pot of beans and cornbread ect. The beans can cook while we go hunting. There is a big BBQ pit, we can throw on a pork butt or two. There is nothing like BBQ, a few adult beverages on the porch overlooking Smitty’s 2700 acres, in the evening, freer, Texas. There is something about that wild place that gets me.
The cost is $200 per person per day. So it is $400 total for Friday noon until Sunday noon. We are not doing one day hunts as that is a logistical nightmare. The lodge is included in this price. Ladies are absolutely welcome, encouraged even, but READ THIS, the lodge has a large open bunkroom. You will be sleeping looking at what could be a stranger in the next bed. There are two very large bathrooms in the bunkhouse. We usually designate one as the ladies and the other the men’s.
My wife and I have surface hunted the place. She found her first point there. This is how we negotiated the price. Most digs are $200 per day because they are proven time and again. They do not include lodging. So at $100 a day for a machine dig and $100 for your lodge, that’s what we came up with. I can’t say this place is screen dig proven. I can say I have seen his collectionS and I know this place is lousy with points. We have foundpoint, brokes, hammer stones, flakes out the babinga and tools. I normally wouldn’t make this big of a write up but I don’t have time to explain the whole thing 50 times. You should have a fairly good idea of what you’re purchasing by this write up.
The cost is low enough to justify this as a test expedition. If we hammer the points great, his price will go up on the next dig. If we bust, then we had a nice stay in south Texas.
