Hog Hunt Rotation (Semi-guided)

By

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

Here are a few pictures from our most successful hunts:

Costs:

  • Hunt fee.
  • Hog cleaning fees (if applicable).
  • 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.  For recommendations on guns and ammo see Hog Hunting Basics.
  • Headlamp or cap light.
  • Spotlight for night hunting (see Hog Hunting Basics).
  • Camo outer hunting clothes (including a face mask or face paint – absolutely essential).  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, etc.).
  • A large ice chest to take your hog(s) home in (if you get any).
  • Corn, if the ranch requires it.  Hog bait is also recommended.

Randy Rowley has extras of many of the items that are listed above and will happily loan things if you let him know that you would like to borrow something before you leave.  Of course, if you borrow something and break or lose it he will expect reimbursement.

Here is our Hog Hunting Checklist.

Being on this rotation is a privilege and is not an 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.
