Yep Neb, I'm still alive. It has been quite awhile. Just don't hunt much or post much anymore. If you catch a hog in front of the feeder or to the side, about 15 yards. Mine was a bit farther. Three deer kept milling around in front of me, then the hog I wanted stayed behind the feeder. Every time I got the shot I wanted, they would start fussing and move. I finally got a quartering away shot at 30 yards. The hog ran about a 100 yards and fell off into that creek. I slipped up to the edge, and spotted it standing below me with the arrow still in it. I got another into it between the shoulder blades. It ran about 50 yards and fell over. Long drag out.

Bowhunt247, Shiloh is NOT a high fence operation.

07-Jan-16
Mike, did shiloh take down the fence and become a free range area? I Missed that? Matt said they were cracking down on fenced operations and all but shutting them down.. That's too bad.. I don't understand how they don't understand that places like Shiloh have killed more hogs and brought in a lot of money to Oklahoma tourist area. Places that used to buy trapped hogs to be put in these ranches to be hunted by people from out of state was a win win for everyone..especially the area farmers!!

Well Matt, you are getting a lot of daytime activity at those feeders being free range. That's AWESOME!!

Keep the pictures coming!! Getting my pig fix...only 21 days till my trip to Texas!!!

It has fence... just not high...

07-Jan-16
No, Jeff...the man ask if we are high fence. A high fence is typically 8' to 10' high. Mike simply answered that we do not have a high fence based on most definitions of what a high fence is. We have a perimeter fence of 4 miles around our place. It is a low fence (5') that is Hog proof. Hope this helps.

Matt and Cheryl, What do you attribute all of the morning activity to? We have killed a few hogs in the morning, but typically evening sits are always much more productive. We too are counting the days until late February and hoping the outstanding hog activity keeps up.

07-Jan-16

Tradman & Huntress's embedded Photo
Tradman & Huntress's embedded Photo
Normally, mornings are not as productive. I attribute that to the fact hogs are more of an evening/nighttime animal. Secondly, hunters spook the hogs on the way to stands. Think about it, walking out early afternoon to stands, the hogs are bedding and hunters visually can see with the aid of artificial light...thus low impact. Mornings, hunters are walking to stands right in the middle of active Hog movement. Plus, lights and wandering around trying to locate stands and other items. The proof is in the pudding. If someone is in a stand in the morning I get few pics. If no one is in the stand, Pigs are likely to come in. Yes, we had hunters that left yesterday. More hunters starting their hunt tomorrow. Pics from this evening.

Makes sense on the morning sits. I'm sure the hogs get bumped trying to get to the stands.

08-Jan-16
Matt, how long do the hogs normally stay and feed if undisturbed? Do they normally stay until all the corn is gone? Or do they dine and dash and then come back and eat more?

Thanks

At the risk of counting my chickens a little early here, I'd like to know from other hunters on how the new processor H&L is doing. Has anybody had their sausage etc. recently? What is their pricing now for an average hog? We are heading to Shiloh toward the end of February and like everyone else, cannot wait to get there.

From: bad karma
13-Jan-16
$60 for a regular hog, up to $100 for one of the monsters. Sausages are good, and consistent. He does a breakfast sausage as well as the Italian. Gary's a nice fellow, too.

From: BowhuntKS
13-Jan-16
OK good deal, we've had Gary do some hogs in the past, but it has been a couple years. Hope he gets the chance to charge me $100.

From: Family Man
13-Jan-16
We had Gary process 4 BIG hogs for us between Christmas and New Years. His setup is awesome- especially when you are able to just drive up and winch a 400#+ hog right out of the bed of your truck! When you think of how nicely-packed and vacuum-sealed the meat is (and the giant chore / mess that's taken off of your hands), it sure makes for a more enjoyable trip! It's a blessing to have such a place within such a short drive of Shiloh! He charged us $130 for our largest, which yielded over 130 pounds of boneless meat (mostly sausage). He was almost nervous to ask for the extra, but explained that it was the second-largest he remembered processing & it took adding something like 64 ounces of sausage seasoning. I tipped him an extra $20 and felt it was well-deserved!

From: John Ryan
13-Jan-16
Gary has done hogs for me. He's a super guy and worries about good customer service. He shouldn't as he is top notch. I highly recommend him.

14-Jan-16
Did P&P close? Sure do miss Alvin and Dan. They made some of the best breakfast sausage!!

From: BowhuntKS

Yes P&P closed and their operation was purchased by Gary and a buddy who I'm not sure is still involved with business. The business also relocated to a new location which is actually just a little closer to Shiloh.
