4PMuzzys are you hunting feral hogs or javalinas? Tons of javalina hogs down there. I quail hunted a ranch down there a couple of years ago just west of Carrizo Springs. Close to where your going. It was the La Bandera Ranch, 10,000 acres for white tail, turkey, ducks, quail and javalina. Most of the ranches in that area of Tx. are hugh ranches that are set up more for corporate type hunts. I was amazed at the amount of hunting that goes on down there. That part of the world exist just for hunting. For those that haven't seen the country side it is as thick with brush as hair on a dogs back. If it doesn't have stickers on it it has thorns. Plenty of rattle bugs down there as well. Be aware even in February they could out sunning themselves. Good luck and bring some pictures back to show us.
In Alberta we are going to use Alberta Bear Busters guide service (plug) just west of High Level. I've never been before and am going with a guy that's been twice to this place. Listening to his stories and reading all of ya'lls accounts I think that I'm already hooked on bear hunting. My wife and family think that I'm nuts. I'm sooo stoked and ready for this I can't stand it.
YorkArcher, I feel your pain on the kids eating and growing up. I'm struggling now with paying for college.....
