Several of the family members guide on the ranch for tule elk, pigs, buffalo, exotics, and upland birds. Last year we went with Nolan Twisselman of "Twisselman's Outfitters". We had a great time and went 3 for 3
(write up of last years hunt: http://www.theoutdoo...showtopic=4817)
We tried to book with Nolan again, but he was already booked up for this weekend So we went with his brother Andrew, who runs "Carrissa Plains Exotics".
Got there early enough to head out friday evening. After checking out some barley fields we waited until just before dark when the pigs started to come out of the juniper canyons. Friday night Steve S. scored on the largest boar of the weekend with 2 1/2" choppers. Evan III also scored friday night on a good meat pig.
Saturday morning Steve and Evan got to sleep in while Yotegetter, CsBishop, and myself went out. Right off the bat we got into 3 pigs in the first barley field we hit. Score 1 each for me and CsBishop. At about 10am we headed back to the bunkhouse to get some ground squirrel shooting in before the evening hunt.
After some squirrel shooting, lunch, and a nap, the guide came back to take Evan and Yotegetter out to fill his tag. Yotegetter ended the evening with 2 hogs. We'll let him tell that story.
I highly recommend both Nolan and Andrew's guide service. Great guys, hardworking, and a good deal. $475 (Nolan) $500 (Andrew), includes a two day fully guided hunt and transportation, field dressing your game, a bunkhouse with full kitchen, comfortable beds and bathroom and shower. And if you get your pig early, your welcome to shoot on their range, or get in some varmint hunting.
Here's a few pictures, more to come.
