Hog Hunting Rotation (Self-guided)

By

The following is a rotation list for self-guided hog hunts.

Costs:

  • Shared lodging (not applicable if we’re camping or if the ranch is close to where we live).
  • For out-of-area hunts, we’ll carpool and split the vehicle gas (the amount depends on the distance traveled and the number of people sharing the gas).  If we take a toll road we’ll split that fee.
  • We’ll stop for drive-through food on the way to the hunt and will stop for drive-through food on the way home.  We’ll share food costs for camp (if applicable) or we’ll eat out if we’re staying at a motel.
  • Hunters will be expected to bring their own corn and/or hog bait or contribute money to help fill the feeders (if applicable) and fill the game cameras with batteries (if applicable).

What to Bring:

  • Hunting license.
  • Weapon of choice and ammo (note that some ranches limit what weapon and/or ammo you can use and how many shells you can have in your gun; for example, some ranches do not allow buckshot, calibers smaller than .243, or more than three shells in your gun.  The ranchette near Austin is limited to crossbows and .22’s.  For recommendations on guns and ammo see Hog Hunting Basics.
  • Headlamp or cap light.
  • Spotlight for night hunting (optional, as there is a light under the feeder; see Hog Hunting Basics for recommendations).
  • Camo outer hunting clothes (including a face mask or face paint – absolutely essential, unless you’re hunting from an elevated stand).  If rain is predicted bring rain gear.
  • A Thermacell is highly recommended to repel bugs.  Bug sprays are not recommended (hogs will smell it and won’t come anywhere near you).
  • Drinks and snacks (optional; drinks are highly recommended).
  • Camping gear (if we’re camping).
  • Game cleaning tools (knives, sharpeners, saw, loppers, gambrel, and rope) if the ranch doesn’t have them and if it allows hogs to be cleaned on the ranch.
  • A large ice chest to take your hog(s) home in (if you get any) and if the ranch allows hogs to be cleaned on the ranch.
  • Corn and hog bait.  If not bringing corn, contribute money to help fill the feeders (if applicable)
  • 12 volt, 6 volt, or AA batteries or contribute money to fill the feeders and game cameras with batteries (if applicable).

Being on this rotation is a privilege and is not a FCS membership benefit.  This rotation is a service to FCS members and guests, but I will not tolerate the below actions.  I can and will remove a person from the rotation for any of the following reasons (this list is not all-inclusive):

  • Not hunting in a safe manner, including deliberately not following my or the guides/outfitters instructions or rules and the FCS Shooting and Hunting Rules.
  • Not paying your fair share of gas and/or food.
  • Not paying for items (that are not yours) that you broke or lost.
  • Not helping.
  • Indicating that he or she will attend a trip and then not showing up.
  • A pattern of being more than a few minutes late.
  • A pattern of canceling at the last minute.
  • Not returning the organizer’s phone calls and/or emails.
