Texas ShootOut 2017 Recap & 2018 News
The 2018 Texas Shoot-Out, it is scheduled for February 14 – 18, 2018. Hunters will be allowed on the Ranch the morning of the 14th to set up camp and begin hunting. WoW! That extra day really worked Great with the Storm hitting late on Sunday. We will again be hunting on the historic Chaparrosa Ranch just outside La Pryor, TX.
John and I were checking the feeder pens as the Ranch requires us to do, and we drove up on a very angry hunter who took our picture. He was upset that some others had driven through his corn and spooked his javalin before he got a shot. He was so upset he told us he would not be returning in 2018. I asked his buddy how his hunt was going, and his reply was “It going Great, I’ve already got one and missed another”. While I was explaining that the Ranch wants us the ride around and make sure hunters are not too close to the feed pens and water troughs, nine Javelinas came out on their corn and the hunters were off on a stalk.
I am sure there are many stories that deserve to be told. If you would like to share a story about yourself and more than likely about your hunting buddy please send your e-mail to (email@example.com)
If you have ideas on how we can make the Shoot-Out even better please let us know by e-mailing your ideas. Cannot say we will implement them, but we would like to hear your ideas.
When arriving at the entry gate located on Hwy. 57, stay all the way over on the right shoulder until it is clear to enter the ranch. I want to give a BIG AT-A-BOY to all of you for helping us to assist you crossing the Hwy.
