Invitation to all for summer crossbow hunt

Post by XB I GO » Tue Feb 27, 2018 10:17 am

I'm home from school because I have a fever but this has given me time to work on this idea.

My brother and I are going to host a crossbow hunt at our ranch in Texas. It's not actually our ranch anymore, my Dad was a partner but since he retired we don't own it but are best friends with the family that does.

We are proposing the second weekend in August this year. Fri-Sun or Sat-Mon based on people's interest.

There are 77 species available at different times on the ranch! We think we should stick to the one's that breed naturally there:

Aoudad, Blackbuck, Axis, Fallow, Hogs. There's also a lot of rams and different kind of goats. The hunt would include airport pick-up at San Antonio, 2 days lodging, guided hunt and one of the animals mentioned. We would use ground blinds and spot and stalk and I might be your guide or someone else. Depending on the species you are interested in you might not need a guide and can sit in a blind alone or with a friend. Everything will be set up for crossbow hunting ranges. We don't use feeders so even blinds will be on trails and you never know what you will see.

There are two private bedrooms (king bed) and three multi-person bedrooms (4 twins or similar). 2 full bathrooms, bar, living room, den and outdoor covered picnic area.

We can do this for $750. Non-Hunters for $200. (That's around half price). Free fishing in the lake with catch and release trophy bass. A non-resident license is $48.

If anyone wants a different species we can figure out the best price. Right now there are Oryx, Bison, Water Buffalo, Zebra, Red Deer and Nigai that I saw.

We also have crossbow targets at 20, 40 and 60 yards and can set up more.

If anyone has interest let me know and I will work this out with my Dad to make it happen.

That is a very cool offer to our forum members, Thank-you kindly. That date conflicts with my Ontario Bear hunt, so, I'm out.

I might add that every hunt that I have been on with other forum members has etched a wonderful memory in my mind and I fully expect your hunt offer will do the same to those able to attend.

Get well soon!

Real nice offer. If it was in October I might be in!! :)
A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of harvest is at hand.

Hey this is a wonderful offer you are making sounds like a great weekend and opportunity, Being from Michigan I think I would have to drive to get my harvest home , Can we butcher on sight ? I would think August is blazing hot and butchering would have to be done same day or next for sure.
