Welcome to the Boars of Texas website, your one-stop swap shop for your hog hunting needs. Regardless of what state you call home, take advantage of our free classified section for buying or selling your hog dogs and hog hunting supplies, check out our competition page for upcoming hunting competitions taking place in your area, and make sure to plan on attending one of our next hog hunting competitions while you're at it. The Boars of Texas Hog Hunting Competition is a "live catch" style hunt using dogs only, and we work with charities every year in order to help support a number of worthy causes. This year the concession proceeds will go to benefit a Caldwell area resident in need of a heart transplant. Thanks again to the Jennings family for making that happen.
The 2016 Boars of Texas Hog Hunting Competition concluded February 7, and the team standings have been posted. All of the weights recorded were based on the live weight of the animal. Stringer weight for the main competition contained up to the five heaviest hogs. The minimum weight of each feral hog weighed had to reach 100 pounds to count for any portion of this year's contest.
Congratulations to LB Cattle (Allen Sullivan, Cole McVeay, Austin Rayborn, Justin Jones) from the Buffalo area, who won first place in the competition with a 1278 pound total for their top five heaviest hogs, also taking the 'Largest Boar' side pot with an impressive 270 pound hog. They left with $7,500 in prize money, a full set of Wild Boar USA cut gear, and some brand new 2016 Boars of Texas Hog Hunt buckles. Those can be seen on the Boars of Texas Facebook Page. Second place went to Goldsmith Ranch (Chase Goldsmith, Scott Mackey, Chandler Albergucci, Wyatt Walton) from the Baird area, who's top five hogs totaled 1271 pounds. They also took the 'Largest Sow' category with a monstrous 303 pound hog, taking home a total of $6,500 for their team. Third place went to Monte Marranos (Clayton Brown, Ashley Campbell, Cale Applegate, Jeremy Katlecek) from the Lexington area, bringing in a 1258 pound top-five stringer and taking home $3000 in prize money. Team Barr Makers (Nick Daniels, Casey DeJohn, Tony Shelly, Marshall Mims) from the Montgomery area, took 'Longest Stringer' with a total of 23 qualifying hogs, and left with $2,500 in winnings. Plantation Posse (Tim Jennings, Josh Stitt, Tanner Toddy, Jared Freiley) won our first Boars of Texas Wild Card Drawing for $500. There were a number of other great prizes awarded to the contestants through our Free Hunter Raffle too. We had additional items donated through Citizens State Bank of Somerville, TX and Double U Hunting Supply of Yacolt, WA. On top of that, all contestants who checked in at the hunt also received a complimentary Boars of Texas Hog Hunt cap, or one of our brand new t-shirts of their choosing. This was a great hunt, and I have all sorts of people to thank, but the ones who often get overlooked are all of the volunteers who come out and help at the weigh-in each year. You folks are invaluable to the hunt, and I really appreciate all of the hard work. Thanks to all of the prize donors, sponsors, hunters, and recipient organizations for making this year another success. Sponsors & Donors include: Burleson County Chamber of Commerce, Burleson County Fair Association, Wild Boar USA, WW Paul Scales, Double U Hunting Supply, Citizens State Bank of Somerville, InkDots of Houston, Burleson County Detail, and Homeyer Feed & Supply).
