Default Would you take a free hunt at King Ranch?

I was just interested because my little bro claims he wouldn't go there if he could for free, I myself would love to, thought it might be interesting to see what others think.

I may not be too keen on hunting the hot, brushy country in Texas for whitetails, but I am not stupid!

I READ IN NORTH AMERICA WHITETAIL THAT THE COST OF HUNTING KINGS RANCH IS $2500 FOR 3 DAYS .... THEN ANYTHING UP TO A 150 CLASS BUCK IS $33.50 PER INCH ..... 151 TO 175 IS $43.50 PER IN ..176 TO 199 IS $55.00 PER IN AND ANYTHING OVER 200 IS 20K .. SOOOOOO YEP I WOULD TAKE A FREE HUNT THERE BUT THATS ABOUT AS LIKELY TO HAPPEN AS JACKIE BUSHMAN INVITING ME TO HUNT CANADA WITH HIM .... AND YES I WOULD DO THAT TO FOR FREE LOL

ROLL TIDE

Anyone who wants to go "hunt" at a place with fences and feeders, isn't a real bowhunter to me. Shame on you.

It's a free hunt, sure I would go. It's not "real" hunting in my book, but it'd still be fun. I just wouldn't have the same satisfaction. But that's okay, as long as I realize that, and don't have the attitude that I'm the best hunter ever because I killed a 190 class whitetail at Kings Ranch. I think most of you hunters know what I mean.
