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 went to Relay For Life. Thanks to the Jennings family for making that a success.
Attention Hunters, we're already getting interest in the 2015 hunt and the details aren't even published yet. Start thinking about your teams now. I know it seems like a long time until the weigh-in on February 1st, but it'll be here before you know it, and we'll be paying out even more money this year in addition to those great buckles. If anyone is looking to host an out-of-state or in-state hunter and have room on your team, or just some great places to hunt and no dogs, remember to check out our "Looking for a Team" section. There is already a fellow houndsman looking for a team to join for the 2015 hunt. Send me an email if you want to be added to my contact list for notification once the rules have been posted, and you will receive the rules, entry form, event map, and flyer as soon as they are finalized this Fall.
The 2014 hunt concluded this past February 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 animals. The minimum weight of any feral hog weighed had to reach 100 pounds to count for any portion of the contest. Additional hogs could be weighed in for the 'Largest Stringer' side pot.
Congratulations to Baros Kennels from Victoria, TX for their 1st place win, enjoy those new buckles and don’t spend all of that money in one place. Can't Get Right from Yoakum, TX placed 2nd. Hildebrant Meat Processing from Plantersville, TX placed 3rd along with taking the ‘Largest Boar’ side pot with a weight of 272 pounds. RSSO of Calvert, TX won the ‘Largest Sow’ category with a weight of 277 pounds, and Bar G Ranch of Bryan, TX took ‘Largest Stringer’ with thirteen qualifying pigs weighed in. Congratulations to all of the winners of the hunter raffle also. I know you'll enjoy all of those items donated by Wild Boar USA and Citizens State Bank. 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 2015.
