I was invited to hunt in South Texas.  We went to 74 ranch resort.  What an incredible place.  The ranch takes up 3 counties and it is 42 sqaure miles large!!!  6 square miles of river bottom (not HF)  and 36 sq miles (HF).  The Lodge, accomodations and service was 5 star to say the least.  In 4 sittings, I saw over 100 deer, 150 turkeys, a dozen javalina, hogs, coyotes.....I dont think that 5 minutes passed before animals showed up at every sitting.  I managed a river bottom 9 point ( 178 lbs), 2 javalinas and a doe, my buddy killed a bruiser 13 point, 2 javalinas and 2 does.  HF or no HF...the hunt was incredible....

were you really "invited" or did you pay?  and what was or would be the price difference between your buck and your friends?  just curious, i have looked into these "opportunities" before and decided they weren't for me.  most of the outfitters charge for the size of the deer taken, which i don't agree with.  i'm not even gonna get on the HF issue.

I was invited...Company trip so to speak!!!  My hunt was $3500 and the trophy is $6500...no hidden fees.  is it managed and HF, yes, but no where close to pen hunting.  There are over 22,000 acres in the HF area....i enjoyed it and will go back in a heartbeat

as long as you like doing that kind of hunting and it is legal, there is no shame.  it's just not for me.  i would love to shoot a once in a lifetime big buck but i refuse to pay that kind of money to do it.
