Hogs and good friends at Spike Box Ranch

Postby Dirtybird » Sun Feb 09, 2014 6:16 pm

It was tough hunting all week with the crazy weather but I had a blast. It was a small group this year that consisted if Mike, Pat, Bryan, Scottie and myself. We all were into hogs everyday. Bryan should step in here with details to the hunt as well. More to come later, I have to hang with my two boys.

The ranch is in northwest Texas. The hunt was very exciting but being able to share camp with my brother and dear friends means even more to me. This hunt was one of the best hog hunts I have ever been on.

Congratulations brother! Looks like the Bolding camp will be eating good this year. An elk and a hog with your longbow? Great job!

How would you rate the ranch you hunted? I've thought about putting together a hunt like this for Josh, Matt and I. How far from OKC is the ranch?

The ranch is big, 118,000 acres with 18,000 planted in winter wheat. The facility is top notch. The drive to the ranch, under normal driving conditions, is about three and a half hours.

That looked like a grand hunt from the pics and stories Pat told me. I was stuck on my honeymoon...

To hear about a javelin a being killed really surprised me. I didn't know javies ranged that far north. Is that a common occurrence?

Cam, this was my first year to see them...4 of them together. Dirtybird and others had seen some in the past. Apparently they are spotted in the same general area above a canyon where the is an abundance of prickly pears. He is a pic of our buddies harvest. I tried to pull the sneak on them, as I was with him, after his shot but could never circle downwind fast enough. Look at the teeth on this Javelina...she popped her jaws SO loud..it was quite the experience.

Back when Curtis Keller guided hunts down by Odessa, me and some fellas from around tulsa went down and hunted hogs and javies. Had one jump the string on me and took an Ace thru the guts. Agitated the heck out of the whole party. I tried to call them back in by using lipsqueaks. They all came back and faced me down, popping jaws, bristled up, and mock charging. All I could think of while looking at those teeth was how I was gonna make it back to the truck with my crotch torn to shreds!

How are you going to do with those hogs that have been hunt ? Are you going to cook the meat of those hogs? As I have heard roasted hog is very delicious, how true is it?
