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. 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 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 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 ( BY THIS I MEAN PRIMITIVE - IF YOU PLAN TO USE A TENT, REMEMBER THIS IS RUFF COUNTRY AND A AIR MATTRESS OR COT WILL BE NEEDED ) or trailer camping ( electric hookup ) fire's are premitted in fire pit area's only. Hunters are permitted to bring 4 wheelers ( state laws prohibit use in creeks and streams ) with them for thier hunt. We ask you treat property as if it were your own. Pick up and take all trash with you, keep all gates on property closed at all times.
WE ASK YOU TO RESPECT ALL STATE \ LOCAL LAWS - All permits ( excecpt for hogs - they may be taken in any number , under any method - day or night ) are the responsibility of the hunter. during your hunt coyote's may be taken ( when in season and with valid hunting permit). Although we do our best to make your hunt successful, we do not guarantee a harvest of any kind. We do offer a 50% discount to any 60 hour midweek or weekend " ( paid ) hunter that doesn't harvest a feral hog towards his \ her next hunt. Your half off 50 % hunt must be used on a weekday hunt ( no half off hunts offered on weekends as of Jan 2013 - if you have hunted prior to Jan 2013 and have a half price return hunt coming, it will be still be avail to you weekend or weekday ) This offer is not valid for 36 hour hunts unless your party had booked its original prior to 1-1-13 - Hunters bringing a child as part of our take a child hunting program that choose to let the child harvast a feral hog over themself willl not be allowed a 50 % ( half off ) return hunt - although we started this program to get children into hunting and allow family members to enjoy time out doors with kids without paying extra, we have had way to many hunts that " only the free children " harvasted a feral hog and the paid adults said they did not and would like a return hunt for half price. We do have camera's on property and this was rarely the case, so as of 2013 we do still offer the take a child hunting free program, however the childs harvast is considered to be the persons who brought them. ( there is still no limit and anyone in the hunting party can havarest as many feral hogs as poss, but the childs harvast counts as yours )
With a variety of hunts to choose from, we're sure that your hunting party will have a great time with us. Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us at 314-640-1857 - 636-282-2805 - WWW.DAKELHOGHUNTS.NET

REMEMBER FERAL HOGS ARE MOSTLY A NOCTURNAL ANIMAL - THIS MEANS YOU MUST BE READY TO SIT OUT AT NIGHT FOR YOUR BEST CHANCE TO HARVAST A HOG
