ClarkRange still in operation?Contributors to this thread:
Hey all, I was just wondering if anyone knows if Ken Moody is still doing hog hunts at Clark Range? I am looking for a place to take my girlfriend for her first hunt and when I went to hunt there for the MHH XI and MHH XIII, I had a great time, and it was like a real hunt. It wasn't like a place where they just pulled a hog out of a pen and pushed it through the fence and tell you to shoot it. There was a lot of walking and then when it came down to shooting, it was pretty fast paced and exciting... So does anyone know if that is still in operation, and if not, does anyone have any idea where a good place would be to take my girlfriend for a first hunt, where she WILL get something and have fun doing it? I live in WAY upstate NY and will want to bring the meat back here and not just got to a place, shoot and leave. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, Jay
Pretty sure he sold it.
Ken sold the operation, the new owner has retained Johnny Thompson as chief guide and operator, and they are running hunts at a comparable price.
I've been told that the facilities have been remodeled and "spruced up"
Also in that area I Caryonah Lodge. Been there twice with excellent results . Same type of deal.
Jay, I am going to a place near me on Jan 6th, if y'all can make that, I will put you up and you can go with. PM me if interested.
I just spoke to Johnny the other night after hearing it was sold. He says things are really looking up at Clarkrange. Completely updated lodges and LOTS of animals. He got me excited about going back. His number is on the website, and he does the booking now. He said the new owners are greenhorns at owning a hunting operation, but they are treating him GREAT and learning.
Ad that is in the April/May 2017 issue of BOWHUNTER Magazine.
Glad to hear that Johnny is still working at Clarkrange, he's a good dude! Also, glad to hear that they are spucing the place up. I still recommend it to anyone inquiring about a hog hunt
