The Jack Ranch in Parkfield (http://www.jackranchwildpighunts.com/) has had a good operation for years. They changed head guides and subsequently some tactics, such as glassing from a distance to find desired sized pigs, and hiking to the hogs instead of running the trucks up to them at 50 MPH jumping out and shooting them on the run. As such they now often slowly drive by groups of smaller pigs without spooking the hell out of them any longer; with the pigs often times staying pretty much were they were. Now, yes I'm talking about their rifle hunts, but the change in tactics make a huge difference for archery hunters, and now you'd actually have a good chance at taking a quality hog.

A few friends of mine just got back from a hunt there and each had opportunities at hogs as close as 30 feet, each harvested a pig, and they saw lots of pigs, along with some of the nicer bucks that come out during the rut (their deer hunting has been reserved to only the ranch hands for years now, with no intention on opening it up to paying clientele. I sure others will chime in on other quality places.

Best of luck!

Hey RenoDave,

I'm in Sparks. I would take a hard look at Bill Burrows Ranch in Red Bluff (About 3 1/2 hours from Reno). If you have 3 hunters, it's well worth it. Hunt, Meals and Lodging around $650 pp for a 3 day weekend. His place backs up to a place I hunt and he has some quailty hogs on his 5000 acres.

Burrows Ranch,
12250 Colyear Springs Road, Red Bluff, CA 96080.
Contact: Bill Burrows.
Telephone: 530-529-1535
