Steve and I have been tossing this idea around a little bit, and even those it is hotter than hell at the moment, we're starting to get more rain and more cloudy days and all the weather that makes pigs move :@) Hunts have been slow recently, but they'll pick up before we know it, which means its time to plan a fall hunt! I'd love for some of us to get together before deer season starts.

So this biggest concerns are, obviously, place and dates. I'd be up for something outside of our backyard so people like Patrick, the Connallys and the Colliers can make it. I'd love to get Rod and Courtney in on it too. Really anyone that is interested, let's make it happen!

As far as dates, I'm in California August 13-16, plus it won't be very cool by then, and Labor Day can be tricky, but I think my September is wide open. Archery season opens Oct. 3 but I'm not sure about general season.

Who's interested?

Depending on the date, we'd sure try to make it.

Depending on date, location, and moneys at the time...I'd be more than interested!

If Chris and the Middletons are interested, is there a good place in East Texas to do this? I figure if we have a couple people interested in making the trip, we'd need a hotel near by. Or maybe someone has access to a deer camp/ranch house setup. The other option might be something towards Patrick and Rachel's neck of the woods if there is a good location. But Steve might have some more ideas. I don't think this needs to be anything big and elaborate, but I know we've tossed the idea around, and it's always fun watching other Lacys hunt.

My meandering thoughts have been considering options since a recent conversation with Patrick and went into overdrive since you posted this.

I think that there are several issues plaguing a group hunt, local being the most taxing consideration, amenities being the second.

The location issue comes to bare because we are stretched across the state and the amenities issue places a huge burden on finding a large enough property.

What if we had several (say 4) sanctioned group hunts per year, each in a different area of the state and each organized by an individual member? We already have the Annual Meeting hunt (granted that it is limited to the officers and BOD). I could get a hill country hunt together, maybe the Middleton family can host an East TX hunt and Myself, Patrick, Andy or Jerry could do a South TX hunt.

We wouldn't all be able to attend each hunt which would make logistics a whole lot easier and throughout the year, we should each have the opportunity to hunt at least once with each of the other members.

If we wanted to do just ONE big hunt per year, open to all members, the only property I can think of which would accommodate us all is the 30day national forest season which I believe runs the 15 of March through the 15th of April..... I just cant think of another place that's big enough to handle it.

I just had another thought..... I'm going to see what would be required to get a large group on one of the TX prison farms. Many prison units in the state have farms in the 10 to 30 thousand acre range. None of us are felons, are we? :)

Me and my dad would be like to join. :) My school starts August 23rd, so we won't be able to make a hunt in the middle of the week. Driving distance probably won't be a problem for us. As long as the drive is less than four hours, we're good.

Who needs a hotel when you can just grab a sleeping bag and nap by the fire? :))

We could turn this into a little competition down the road if there is enough interest..Hill Country vs East Tx ect... ;) :))

Sorry I sorta fell out of the loop on this... Whatever you guys decide, I am really interested in doing it. I think that over time it would be great to expand this to three or four hunts a year or maybe a Central vs. East vs. South challenge. But let's make sure we start it no matter what! And I think that making a point to bring at least one person who is new to the sport but is clearly interested would be wonderful. We probably only have room for one person (or couple or parent-child) like that per hunt, but I think it's very important to make that commitment to our members and the future of hog dogs.

Patrick, let me know what you hear, and I'll get the boys thinking about it some more as well.

And I already have some ideas for a t-shirt :p

If anyone is interested, I'm all for it. Maybe we could even do something in East Texas with the Middletons, that would definitely be closer for you Chris. Of course deer season makes things a little more complicated, a lot of us have limited access to properties once the hunters are out in force, but I'm still up for a weekend if we have the land for it.

I say we at least start planning. Any ideas y'all?

I'm not sure if DJ has seen this thread, but I'll see what his thoughts are tonight. I imagine his concern would be finding a suitable place to hunt. All of the places he hunts belong to other people, and most of them are picky about who is on their land. Deer season also complicates things; you'd probably only be able to hunt at night, and the locations would be even more limited.

Yeah, when I first had this idea, I was thinking September. Right now would be the perfect time to do something since it's cooling off and the hunters aren't in the woods yet. But Steve and I did the Babes vs. Barrs last weekend, I'm speaking at the NEDA conference this weekend, then we have the Bremond Bay on Sept. 19. I suppose we could try for the weekend after that, Sept. 26-27, but it is cutting it real close for a lot of deer leases, plus that might not be enough time to plan. Of course if anyone is up for it, I'm game, especially if we do it on one of Mike or Steve's properties ;)

Or we can start planning a big awesome trip for the spring. Things usually start loosening up in February. And we will be doing the Hunt for the Hungry again this year, which is the first weekend in March. If we have enough people and properties, we could always organize more than one team.
