I've been to Chopper's 3 times. Here's the scoop: 2 pigs either sex, 4000 acres, a great cabin (bigger & better than you can imagine), plenty of critters, & a knowledgable host. I hit 3 pigs on my first two visits w/ many other blown stalks & chances.
It's by no means an easy hunt, but if you listen to chopper & work for it, the pigs are there......there's been a few thread's here 'bout his place w/ nothing but good comments.
I'd go back!
I was there for both hunts. I was able to connect on a good size boar. Slinger summed it up well. You need at least three though. This is an unguided hunt, but Chopper will direct to the right place. The rest is up to you. He has a skinning shed where you can clean up your hog and a cooler to hang it for the weekend. Some great views from the Cabin.
There was eight of us last time and the ranch was plenty big for all of us. I beleive all eight of us seen and/or had chances at pigs.
Not much left to say that the other guys didn't say.
I spent two days there on the first hunt with the JHO guys, and saw hogs every time I went out. If I shot a wheel bow instead of this recurve, I probably could've taken a poke at one nice boar. He was too far for trad gear, though. The other blown opportunities were my own fault.
There's some talk of another JHO group gathering in the late fall. Keep your eyes open.
I'm not a bow hunter, but I hunted Chopper's before it became archery only. All of us always got hogs, although some missed a few! I still cannot get over the view from the "cabin," and I love the place. Chopper is a great guy, too! Keep your eyes open, and you will see deer, turkeys, quail, bobcat, coyotes, etc.
And yes, you can shoot sows. Naturally, you wouldn't (shouldn't?) shoot a sow that is still nursing or one that has little piglets with it, but I shot a nice 170 pound dry sow that was some of the best pork I've ever had!
