I recommend this outfitter

Let me start b saying I am a newbie. My first hunt. I went to Brushy Hill Ranch expecting to shoot lots of hogs. My 30 year old son, who has bow hunted a little, tried to lower my expectations down to accepting if we were to get nothing in our four day hunt. What I learned in the first three days is how very hard it is to hunt with a bow. But by day four, and after lots of scouting and spotting and stalking, that it is possible. My son shot a good sized boar the second day, tracked the blood trail for two days and came up empty handed. On the third day I was able to kill a sow, which I wanted for the meat as I hear it is much more tender.

The trip was one of the best my son and I have been on. The owners, Pete and Ava, exemplify old-time Texas Hospitality. They are genuine, generous, and gracious.

The only time I have seen more animals on one property in my life is at the zoo. Keep in mind, this is after the heavy rains of June 2015 where everything is green and lush. And there is a huge variety in landscape: from thick mesquite and brush to more open grass and dirt with small trees for good cover and stalking. We covered most of the 1,800 acre section of the ranch we were on and had it all to ourselves.

If you are looking for 400 count cotton sheets on your bed, go somewhere else, but if you want a rustic, no frills hunting cabin with cold ac, a fridge, hot showers, and the most reasonable rates around, this is the place. Brushy Hill was better than we imagined and we highly recommend it. We are going to make it a yearly trip.
