MY Ranch Hunting Preserve
Reviewed September 25, 2012

I gave a $700 deposit a march 16-18 2012 hunt and had a death in the family and could not make hunt nor reschedule. I told Walter of this a month in advance and he said there would be no problem getting someone to fill my slot and would refund my money. Haven't seen a penny. Hope it is worth it Walter and hope you burn in hell. I had no Idea there where so many angry people until I found this site to write a review about you. Hope you don't get any more suckers at your place. What a waste of human debris you are.

Walter,
I just needed to write and express my disbelief that you advertize a "quality hog hunt", that is essentially absent any real hog population. Your ranch is lovely and the set up ideal. That all said, I have hunted feral hogs for 30 years in Texas and never observed so little hog sign and with 9 guns hitting the feeders until 9:30 at night 3 days, and hardly a sighting of hogs. I personally never saw even a track in the wet ground. I did observe the rooting below #2 and #7 other wise your fields were pristine and undisturbed by traditional Texas hog populations. The daffodils were up and blooming. My experience with foraging feral hogs, the perennial bulbs would not have a chance to bloom before they were rooted and eaten. Either you have over hunted them or a alien space craft has beamed them all up to the mother ship. I rode the Razr over all your ranch before coming to these conclusions.

Our group would have been an annual reservation for you had we not all come home with empty coolers. A nice mobile home and hot water at the end of the day for serious pig hunters is not enough. You might consider suspending hunts until your population rebounds.

This was my 1st hunt in 30yrs I did not see a pig on a ranch advertizing feral hog hunts.

I had a great time exploring the ranch and saw plenty of deer but only saw one batch of hogs on the smaller size.

We went in there the last days of February with high hopes only to realize that the place has been over hunted.
Walter the owner,was okay, a week or two before we arrived (group of 7) he kept asking if we were still coming. Odd thing was, he gets his jeans dry cleaned, as in, "not hurting for funds"! We did get a dissertation on investing from Walter but still no hogs.
Accommodations were good, but the hunting day or night was poor.
I had night vision and a laser designator to work with but if there's no hogs that equipment is useless.
This isn't sour grapes, just a warning to anyone considering hunting hogs there.

8 of us hunted half a day on 3-1-2011 and were steaming mad after scouring the 1300 acres and seeing few signs of any hog existence. If anything, there is an over abundance of deer. Approx. 13 feeders and stands are placed throughout the property. The corn below the feeders appeared to be accumulating and untouched, leading us to believe this guy activates his feeders prior to the arrival of the booked reservations. Obviously to save his supply of corn, which ultimately does not attract the desired game. I do believe there are hogs in the area from what little signs we saw, but they are few and far between. Locals in the area, from Dallas to Crocket, say that there are not that many hogs around Crockett and east Texas. They also are amazed this guy is making money on something that is rarely seen. We ended up leaving mid-day on day 1, skipping day 2, and found a place north of Dallas that had more hogs than this guy at M.Y. Ranch. If there is anything positive to say about this place it would be that the property is very attractive and the lodging was very adequate for 8 people. The lodge is a mobile home and what you would expect for a hunting lodge. It's obviously not the Ritz-Carlton. Even though the property and lodging are a positive, don't let this be a deciding factor to visit this poor exuse of a hog hunting ground.
