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 Project Graduation. Thanks again to the Jennings family for making that happen.
The 2017 Boars of Texas Hog Hunting Competition concluded February 5, 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 Bo-N-Da-254 (Richard Elfrez, Rex Bumpus, Clint Hegefeld, Jeff Hughes) from the Riesel area, who won first place in the competition with a 1284 pound total for their top five heaviest hogs. They left with $5,000 in prize money, a full set of Wild Boar USA cut gear, and some brand new 2017 Boars of Texas Hog Hunt buckles. Second place went to Can’t Get Right (Brandon Leftwich, Jeff Baranowski, Dustin Morrow, Dylan Morrow) from the Yoakum area, whose top five hogs totaled 1231 pounds earning them $4,000. Third place went to Goldsmith Ranch (Chase Goldsmith, Scott Mackey, Eric Patterson, Greg Gunta) from the Baird area, whose top five hogs totaled 1217 pounds. They also took the 'Longest Stringer' with 41 head of qualifying hogs weighed in, and left with a total of $5,500. J&K (Kody Gerke, Kurt Kelso, Dusty Koesche, Mathew Macha) from the Wharton area won $2500 with the ‘Largest Boar’, weighing in at an impressive 274 pounds. Double HH Hog Dogs (Matt Hall, Branson Ponder, Stephen Tolar, River Hall) from the Merkle area won the ‘Largest Sow’ category with a monstrous 310 pound hog. They also won the Wild Card Drawing, bringing their team winnings to a total of $3000. 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; Double U Hunting Supply of Yacolt, WA; Gun Dog Supply of Starkville, MS; and Will Smith Freeze Branding of Quitman, TX. 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 turned out to be a great hunt, and I appreciate everyone who helps support this tournament each and every year. Thanks to all of the volunteers who come out and help at the weigh-in. 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.
