Hog hunting in TX, LA, MS, AL & GA used to be about people wanting hogs off their land. Just like farmers used to want the deer off their land in IA, KS, IL & KY. then someone offered to pay and the rest is history. Next to impossible to find free hog hunts now...
If you can't be hunting....  Be here...  --9-8-7

Is this the free hunt place? I remember being picked to win a hog hunt in Texas, not sure if this was the place. I passed on it, too busy with other stuff going on in my life now so I opted not to take the “free” hunt

Sounds like you had a good time...I've shot numerous hog here in Georgia. The heavy rain messed you up. I can see where that would be a two day drive from your neck of the woods.

Nice! Except for the cost to fly there, rent a car, hotel room, hunting  license , meals did you have any other costs i.e. tip, hog processing, etc?

Did you bring your own rifle or did they have one you could use?

I am just nervous about trusting an airline with my rifle.

I have Remington 700SS 30.06 W/Leupold 3x9x50mm scope;  .270 custom built iron sights, and a cheapo Hi-Point 9mm with a Vortex Red Dot scope.

What would you recommend out of these for hogs?

Never hunted hogs but someday........

Well to start with Flint  , there is a $100 guide fee when you get there , they have a bunkhouse to stay in included or you can rent a 2man room extra , the meal are included in you hunt , most of your hunting is from blinds morning and night , then during the day you can sit in a blind or walk and hunt and stalk  . the 270 would be best because most of your shots will be under 30 yards . There is a $50 fee to process any hog under 50# and then $1 a pound for those over 50# . They also will debone the meat for $35 . All drinks are included and there is ice there for you use . If your flying Austin is your best bet , it's a 70 minute drive from the airport . your 9mm would be a good backup . They also have airline freezer boxes if your bringing back meat .
 As far as rifles that they have there , they have shotguns and some rifles there for $35 and they have a sight-in range  there also ammo . The license is a 5 day non resident which you can get on the Texas DNR site or any Walmart in Texas .
 Then at the end of the hunt there is a tip for the whole staff ( about 20 people ) . Your car you can use to get to and from your blinds and the longest walk from your car to blind is under 100 yards . If you have any more questions fire , I will be going back there next April .  ##$%#1118

Thanks.Too much on my plate with selling the house, knee recovery etc. I am on the fence about hunting hogs. Never tried. Die hard Turkey and deer hunter. Maybe someday I will try that place.
No issues with the airline taking the bacon home?

No problem except the cost , they buy air shipping boxes that are used to ship fish south from Alaska to Portland  OR , that they well load with 50# to save money , Flint there is no bacon on a wild hog , it's all lean meat . Have pictures that show that but they are a little to graphic .
