Thanks for visiting!
We hope you can find everything you need. DAKEL HOG HUNTS is focused on providing high-quality service and customer satisfaction - we will do everything we can to meet your expectations. Please take the time to look over the website, as most questions are answered within. Owners Dave and Kelly Sommerhauser will work with your hunting party to assure you of the best time during your hunt. We offer a on your own style type ( FAIR CHASE ) hog hunt, we never double book parties ( when hunting at Dakel Hog Ranch, only your hunting party will be on property ) to assure your group the best chance at a hog harvest. We continue to bait feeders ( corn mix ) on a twice weekly basis and we provide hunters with safe box blind stands to hunt from. All stands are safe ( wood style ) with a range from 20 yards to field and power line shots of over 300 yards. There are several stands near field and power line cut area this is set up for wind direction change as well as bow and rifle shots - this does not mean everyone in a hunting party has to hunt together or is limited to this area only - we have stands located all over the 200 acre property and SUGGEST HUNTERS SPREAD OUT AND COVER AS MUCH AREA AS POSSIBLE during the day I suggest woods or game trail hunting and field or powerline ( feeder hunting ) at night ( you will hear this alot on this website, but I can not stress night hunting enough - hogs are most active at night which means hunters should HUNT night hours from 10:00pm to light ) - TRUST ME WHEN I SAY ALTHOUGH FIELD AND POWER LINE CUT STANDS ARE EASY ACCESS AND ARE LOCATED NEAR FEEDERS DOES NOT MEAN YOU WILL SHOOT A HOG WITHIN MINUTES OF SITTING THERE. IT DOES TAKE SOME WORK AND I MYSELF FAVOR GAME TRAILS LEADING TO FEEDERS -Dakel Hog Ranch works close with the Conservation office and with the NCRS office to maintain a property area that feral hogs remain on and stay within the area. We work very hard to decrease the state of Missouri's Feral Hog population by means of hunting, trapping and gathering information on hogs habits to further our resources for Feral Hogs population eradication . We use a corn mix bait ( 800 ) POUNDS WEEKLY, plus small food plots to maintain a year long food source.
We DO NOT release hogs to hunt and the hogs on property are wild " feral hogs " they are not fenced in or farm raised -
THIS IS A 100 % FAIR CHASE HUNT. Dakel Hog Hunts is a friendly family run company that keeps prices lower than any other hog hunt ranch in any state. We believe that if we do our best to make your hunt as successfull as it can be , by keeping prices within reach of most average hunters along with offering a take a child hunting program ( as always Dakel Hog Hunts will never charge you to bring a child hunting - one free child 16 and younger for every paying hunter ) everyone wins and we will build a yearly return customer for life. We offer primitive camping - tent or trailer or cabin rental, We do not charge for trailer or tent camping and we do include electric hook up for campers. ( BY THIS I MEAN PRIMITIVE - THERE ARE NO REST ROOMS OR SHOWER HOUSES - WE DO HAVE A WELL ON PROPERTY FOR WATER - IF YOU PLAN TO USE A TENT, REMEMBER THIS IS RUFF COUNTRY AND A AIR MATTRESS OR COT WILL BE NEEDED )
REMEMBER FERAL HOGS ARE MOSTLY A NOCTURNAL ANIMAL - THIS MEANS YOU MUST BE READY TO SIT OUT AT NIGHT FOR YOUR BEST CHANCE TO HARVEST A HOG
We hope to see you again! Check back later for new updates to our website. There's much more to come!
