I remember reading about tradgangers going on these big group hunts down in Texas when I first joined. At the time I lived in Montana and figured I'd never have a chance to hunt with y'all. But now I'm living in Texas and wondering if these hunts are still a thing? Is it all sold out/booked up/with a long waiting list? Not happening any more? I'd dearly love a chance to hunt with Terry, Mr. Lamb, and Co. some day.

I hunted with several tradgang guys when Curtis was operating 7th Age Bowhunting.

A group of us went to the Tejon Ranch in California about 2010

Unfortunately there are none that I know of at this time. I attended two of the Solana Ranch hunts and enjoyed meeting and sharing the hunting experience with other TradGang members. Would not hesitate to do it again. [campfire]

Trump, perhaps it's time to organize something? I too joined when they had the sweat, Solana and pig gigs but wasn't in a position to go. I would love to hunt there one day.

Hmm... I have no idea where to start in setting something up. I'd be open to ideas though!

I was on the Solana hunt with BDann! Thatís where I met him and another tradganger that I have become great friends with. We have shared several other adventures since then together.


Get something started Malachi!!!!!

This is the exact reason I started the Boeuf Hog Hunt 3 years ago. There weren't many option for hunts that I could manage. Easiest way was to host one myself.

"If you build it, they will come"

That's basically what happened here. The first year of the hog hunt I had well over 30 people interested. But, due to the location, I only had 12ish people there. Last year we had 10 and we have loved it so much pretty much all 10 of the same guys are coming back, with a few extras of course.

It's gotten to the point to where we have so many people we don't even mention it to anyone other than sharing the thread.

I know Crittergetter has a hog hunt that he usually does in Tx that usually happens in a couple months.

I would be interested, but doubt i'd be able.

Malachi....are you talking about the Solana deer/hog hunts or are you talking about the Hog Hunts in TX that were refereed to as TX Sweats?

We have been a tradgang sponsor since 2010. We host several tradgang members on hog and javelina hunts here every year. We have donated a hunt to the St Jude's auction every year since we started. With some notice and preparation we would be able to host a group hunt again.

I was able to attend three of those west Texas hunts. I enjoyed those get togethers, killed some hogs and met some fine friends in the process. The lease on the ranch where these hog and javy hunts were held became available to us and we hold hog and Javy hunts on them every year.

There are +/- 126 sections on the University Ranch and the Looney Ranch combined, in one contiguous block. We maintain baited blinds on around 45 waterholes and hold hunts in January, February and sometimes in March. Archery only hunts, shots are set up for traditional archers. Around half of our hunters shoot traditional gear. We have two bunkhouses equipped with heat, kitchens, hot showers, bunks with a mattresses, skinning facilities, freezer space etc. so you won't have to rough it in a cold tent like we used to do on the Texas Sweat hunts. We have tracking dogs on hand to retrieve your wounded game. All at a reasonable price that has not changed since we began.

We enjoy a high number of repeat clients with around 80% of hunters rebooking every year. We have a large group taking up one bunkhouse every week for January and February this year and have smaller groups in the other bunkhouse. We could take a few individuals or groups of 2-3 some weeks but are otherwise nearly full for January and February. We have space for hunters in March but there is one caveat you should be aware of and that is the Javelina season closes at the end of February in counties north of the Pecos river. We hunt right down to the Pecos, so no open Javelina season in March on our ranches.

We just started running one of the small square banner ads on the pow-wow page. Click on the banner and you will be directed to our website home page. We have a page devoted to our Texas hunts accessed by clicking on the left side button. If there is any interest in putting together a group hunt we may be able to help.

Hey Terry! I was really talking about either/or. Just was wondering if something was still ongoing. I never knew the specifics of the hunts when they were taking place, just that it looked like buckets of fun.
