"Last February, two companions and I hunted javelina in Texas using simple, wood longbows and, for two of us, wood arrows fletched with natural turkey feathers. The three of us bagged four javelina in 2½-days. We hunted with Wayne Wiemers and found him to be easygoing, down-to-earth and ready to go the extra mile.
Wiemers offers no-drawing hunts for free-range desert mule deer, pronghorn antelope, aoudad, javelina, feral hogs and blue quail on 14 private ranches totaling approximately 275,000 acres, much of it with exclusive access.
During our stay, I had the opportunity to talk with Wiemers about his various hunting programs:
For desert mule deer, a four-day/four-night hunt for two or more hunters costs $3,950 per hunter. This includes vehicle, guide and lodging, but no meals. During our javelina hunt, our group saw numerous mule deer, but nothing I would describe as outstanding. We came away with the impression that the desert mule deer in this locale do not compare with those in Sonora, Mexico, but then neither do the prices. We still saw some very nice bucks that would satisfy anyone but a hard-core trophy hunter. Wiemers claims a 93 percent success rate on deer.
I was quite surprised to see reasonable numbers of pronghorns on our hunt, and they did not appear to be anywhere near as "spooky"........(continued)
