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 our concession proceeds will go to Relay For Life. Thanks to the Jennings family for making that happen.
The 2015 Boars of Texas Hog Hunting Competition concluded February 1, 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 50 pounds to count for any portion of the contest. Additional hogs could be weighed in for the 'Largest Stringer' side pot.
Congratulations to Duck Creek (Marc McKelvey, JD Gooch, Wynne Breeden JR, Austin Piske) from the Kosse area, who won first place in the competition with a 1326 pound total for their top five heaviest hogs, and also took the 'Largest Sow' side pot with an impressive 324 pound hog. They left with $5000 in prize money and some brand new 2015 Boars of Texas Hog Hunt buckles. Those can be seen on the Boars of Texas Facebook Page. Second place went to J.J.C.H. Hog Dogs (Jeremy Kadleck, Josh Baros, Cale Applegate, Henry Heller) from the Smithville area, who's top five hogs totaled 1155 pounds. They went home with a total of $3000. Third place went to team Stanky Boyz (Kendall Clayton, Jordan Melton, Jay Grayson, Joe Carter) from the Milano area. They just narrowly missed second place with their heaviest five hogs weighing in at 1150 pounds. $2000 was awarded to them for their third place win. Straight Up Hog Hunting (Doug Bass, Heath Wiktorik, Ronnie Kamper, Dalton Kamper), from the Brenham area, took 'Largest Boar' with a weight of 303 pounds as well as the 'Longest Stringer' side pot with 25 qualifying hogs weighed in. Side pots paid $1000 each, so Straight Up Hog Dogs left with $2000 as well. There were a number of other great prizes awarded to the contestants through our Free Hunter Raffle too. We had items donated through Wild Boar USA, River Bottom Trackers, Double U Hunting Supply, and Citizens State Bank. On top of that, all contestants who checked in at the hunt also received complimentary Boars of Texas Hog Hunt caps. Thanks to all of the prize donors, sponsors, hunters, volunteers, and recipient organizations for making this year another success. We look forward to another great hunt in 2016.
