Texas Hog Hunting
With a true dedication to the removal of wild hogs, Prone Outfitters represents the best of Texas hog hunting: No limits, no hidden fees, and 100% free-range hunts. After years of experience and thousands of harvests, Prone’s clients have likely killed more FREE-RANGE wild hogs from the ground than any outfit in existence.
No Trophy Fees
Spot and Stalk
Thermal Hog Hunting
Prone Outfitters Thermal Hog Hunts combine a target-rich environment with a hunting style that has proven to be 100% effective throughout thousands of trials.
Spotting (Read More...)
Used as a monocular, Prone’s thermal image scopes allow up to 1,400 yards of heat detection in complete darkness. Because wild hogs feel comfortable during the night, our large wheat fields turn their primary feeding grounds into a wide-open death trap.
After spotting a group (sounder), we make our move in a single-file line to limit our troop’s silhouette against the night sky. With the wind in our favor we creep through the open fields and compose the remainder of our game plan on the fly. Reaching a distance that borders hand-to-hand combat is an art-form, and we paint with blood!
We’ve made it to 30 yards and everyone’s nerves are through the roof. Your guide QUIETLY arranges your group in a formation dependent upon where and how many wild hogs are in range.
As your guide moves behind the group to give any last-second instructions, you steady your aim and the safeties come off. You wait for your guide to call the shot and then 3... 2... 1... SMASH!
After your shot at glory we’ll either be jumping for joy because you crushed an entire family of wild pigs! Or we’ll be crushed because we just spent an hour stalking a group of pigs for unsuccessful target practice. None-the-less, more wheat fields are only minutes away!
Along with unlimited predators and small varmints, this Texas hog hunt is unlike any fully-guided experience available.
What to Bring
Texas Hog Hunting
Aside from wind direction, quiet clothing is the single MOST IMPORTANT factor when within 100 yards. If you want to be successful from close quarters, which is the entire idea of this style of hog hunting, DO NOT bring clothing that makes noise. Summer time will be 75+ degrees at night. Throughout all other seasons, you should be prepared for warm and cold weather. Camouflage is welcome but not necessary.
***Double-up on hoodies and long underwear before you bring a loud jacket or pants!!!***
With minimal amounts of wind, and/or taking out large boars, rifles have proven to be an extremely effective weapon. Semi-Autos are welcome, but controlled shooting will be enforced!!!
- 30 Caliber or Larger
With wind of 10+ mph, shotguns can do some major damage as well. If we can get two or three hunters within 30 yards of a group of 20 pigs, something is going to die, and typically it won’t just be one. **Not recommended on Stand/Feeder Hog Hunt**
- 00 Buckshot
- Hybrid Buckshot/Slugs
- Low Power or Open Sights
- Extension Tubes are Neat
Pistol and Bow
If you want to try your hand at extremely close quarters and uncomfortable situations, we can do this style of hunt with pistol and bow!
*Shin-guards and helmet not supplied*
**Scroll Up for ‘Accessories’**
We need you as quiet as possible in the field. While these items can all be beneficial, if you do not know how to use them properly they become more of a nuisance than helpful.
- Gun Light Attachment (White, Red, or Green)
- Shooting Stick
- Small Backpack (If we end up on an hour-long stalk you might want water, more bullets, or your stress ball.)
- Your own night vision or thermal scopes.

Hog Hunting in Texas?

Our best hog property is a working cattle ranch that covers over 2,800 acres in Central Texas. Large wheat and soybean fields, massive amounts of water, tons of cover, and a hefty supply of cattle feed put this hog ground in the top 1% in the country.
Prone Outfitters sets no limit on how many pigs you can kill. It’s real hog hunting, not a PETA convention!
Prone hunts 100% free-range wild hogs! Fenced in pig hunts do nothing to actually help solve the wild hog problem.
Wild hogs shouldn’t have an extra price tag just because of their size. With Prone, you are purchasing a service, not a limited number of trapped pigs under 50 lbs.
Part-time guides and outfitting services fill the Texas hog hunting market. Prone’s team loves what they do, and because hunting is our full-time job, we spend countless hours in the field preparing for your arrival.
Wild Hog Problem
Though some claim to be the “Best Hog Hunting Outfitters in Texas”, read more below as we unravel the misinformation that has flooded the Texas hog hunting market.
Wild Hog Population (Click Me!)
With an estimated population of over 4 million, wild hogs have likely traveled every ranch in Texas. However, that does not mean those properties are fit to sustain a consistent wild hog population. Consequently, this is the main reason most Texas outfits have moved to fenced in operations.
Through our own research, we've found that over 85% of Texas hog hunting outfitters hunt inside of cages or "hog-proof" areas. These pigs are trapped, released from a trailer, then sold to you in a WILD hog hunting package. In other words, you could hunt pinned hogs in your home state for a similar price and experience.
Harvest limits and trophy fees consume this industry. However, Texas hog hunting should be focused on solving the problem rather than employing methods discouraging maximum removal.
Small properties lead to inconsistent success rates and short hunt times. If property size isn't displayed, assume high-fence or minimal property. Just how many guided hog hunts can one run on a 600 acre property?
Stand/Feeder Hog Hunts
While Stand and Feeder hog hunts are cheap, they are about the most useless method of hog hunting possible. Such is the reason most guide services move to the fenced-in properties to begin with. Even on some of the best hog ground in the country, shooting one pig per day on a stand and feeder hog hunt would be above average.
Along with the QDMA, Prone feels the transportation and release of live feral hogs should be banned, and ask that you do not contribute to the madness!
If you want real hog hunting in Texas, book your hunt with an industry leader trusted by thousands of hunters across the country. Texas hog hunting isn’t our hobby; it’s how we make our living. It’s after dinner and before we put on our blood-stained jammies.
"There guys are great to hunt with, plenty of places to hunt and no shortage of hogs! Definitely a good time!"
"Matt took us out the other night and put us on a monster of a pig. I would highly recommend the guys over at Prone to anyone looking to book a pig hunt."
"My son and I had a great hog hunt with Nate in Stamford. He got us on a bunch of hogs. Stalking with the thermal sight was awesome. Got within 15 yards of a bunch of them. Saw tons of deer, turkey, hundreds of rabbits and heard lots of coyotes also. We will be back again for sure."
