Food and lodging - All hunts will include food and lodging. Arrival will be between noon and 3pm on the first day of the hunt. The ranch is behind locked gates so hunters will be required to call a phone number to be welcomed through the entry gate. After a welcoming introduction and safety meeting, the hunters can shoot their bows at the 3-D range or just relax and get their gear organized.
Hunters will be provided a daily brunch served at 11 am and a dinner that will be served just after dark. Extra snacks, morning oat meal, cereal, lunch meats, soft drinks, and bread will also be provided ad lib. Food and drinks will be provided, but bring your own alcoholic beverages. Spouses are welcome. Non-hunting guests will be charged an additional $50 per day if the same private bedroom is shared.
Your guide will drop you off and pick you up at your hunt location twice daily. The semi-guided hunt will begin at 3 to 4 PM after their arrival when hunters are transported out to their blinds or tree stands. Pick-up for the evening hunts will be after dark. If you hit a hog and need assistance in a retrieval, you can contact your guide via cell phone for an earlier pick-up. The following morning, hunters will be taken out to their blinds or tree stands just prior to sunrise. You are required to stay in your blind or tree stand until at least 8 AM. After 8 AM, if you would like to spot and stalk, you are welcome to give it a try. Remember to keep the wind in your face! Wild hogs have an excellent sense of smell. Their eyesight is only good if you are caught moving. A bowhunter can get within 20-30 yards almost every time if the stalk is done well.
Pick-up will be between 10 AM and 11 AM at a predetermined time and place. Brunch will be around 11 AM. Hunters are free to do what they would like through the mid-day. You are also always welcome to-take off on foot to chase the pigs after the morning hunt. Your guide will take you out to the blind or tree stand again between 3 and 5 PM for the evening hunt. Hunting on the ranch will end at the 11 AM brunch on the last day of your hunt. The hunting party will leave the ranch (hopefully with coolers full) to head home between noon and 3 PM on the last day. Night hunts can be made by special arrangements with your guide and will incur an additional fee. Stalking up on a group of wild hogs at night can be extremely exciting and potentially dangerous, but your guide will provide the firepower if necessary.
DEPENDS ON THE NUMBER OF ARROWS AND BROADHEADS THAT YOU BRING!
As many as 3 hogs have been harvested by an individual bowhunter in one evening hunt. There have been archers that have harvested over ten wild hogs in a five-day hunt. There is NO TROPHY FEE! The hunt package will include meat processing of two wild hogs. Your first two hogs will be processed at no charge. Additional hogs will be processed for a fee of $40 per hog.
Harvested wild hogs will be taken back to a professional skinning and processing room. The ranch staff will clean and process all hogs harvested by our hunters. Hunters will get backstraps, shoulders, hams, and tenderloins. Alternatively, the hogs can also be quartered for the cooler. The package includes the meat processing of the first two hogs harvested by each hunter. After the first two hogs, the hunter will be charged an additional $40 per shot hog for cleaning/processing. You can donate the meat but are still responsible for the cleaning/processing fees after your second hog.
Our processing service includes retrieval from the field, chilling your meat in a large walk-in cooler, or freezing your meat prior to departure. For the return trip home, we recommend that you bring one or two coolers for your meat.
In an archery-only hog hunt, if you are using a pin site, it is best to have a sight light. Also, high powered, green or red lens flashlights can be used on picatinny stabilizers for low light conditions (Pigs will often time come in to your stand or blind right at dusk). If you plan on hunting anything other than feral swine (coyotes, bobcats, axis deer, whitetail deer, elk, or buffalo), or if you are doing your hog hunt during the state scheduled deer season, you will need to purchase a 5-day out-of-state Oklahoma hunting license for a nominal fee. This can be done on-line at www.wildlifedepartment.com/licensing.
We encourage predator hunting at any time during your hunt. Bring all your necessary hunting equipment and don’t forget to have extra arrows and broadheads. We have a few tree stand safety vests, but it is best to bring your own. All tree stands will have safety ropes to clip yourself onto prior to climbing. If you don’t like tree stands, you can hunt from one of the many stationary ground blinds. You are also welcome to bring your own pop-up blind for added mobility. If you are going to spot and stalk, we highly recommend snake boots or leggings, along with tick/insect repellent for your body and clothes.
Transportation to or from the ranch:
The ranch is located just southeast of Stilwell, Oklahoma. If you need to get picked up at a local commercial airport (Fayetteville, AR -1.5hrs; Fort Smith, AR - 1hr; or Tulsa, OK - 2hrs), there will be an additional charge of $100 for each trip (maximum of 4 passengers).
There are several local taxidermists that can do good wild boar mounts, or you can bring your trophy home to your own taxidermist.
If you are going to go off into the woods, it is a good idea to go on-line to OnX Maps. You can download Oklahoma or the ranch area to save for offline mapping. Your GPS on any smartphone will work offline with an OnX map. Cell reception is best with Verizon.
Your guides, lodge chief and cleaner, and game processors will work hard for you. If you feel they have done a good job, please tip them individually. The total gratuity is typically between 10% to 20%.
Additional meat processing:
Processing of your first two hogs are included in your package. The additional processing fee of $40 will be applied to each additional (over 2) hog harvested. There is an additional fee of $1.50 per pound for processing your meat into sausage.
*A $250 deposit is require to preserve a date.
**A 50% deposit is required one month prior to scheduled hunt date with the remainder in cash or cashier’s check upon arrival.
Hunt fees are in the Packages section of the website
