Hog Hunting Adventure With the Honda Pioneer 1000-5 LE
We do battle with feral hogs in southwest Texas
After about a decade in the ATV media business, it can start to feel like youíve done just about everything there is to do with an ATV or UTV. Thatís certainly not a complaint, as Iíve got a memory bank full of awesome adventures Iíll remember for the rest of my life. But every once in a while you get a reminder that there are things you didnít even know were possible. I had one such experience recently when Honda invited me to southwest Texas to ride the Pioneer 1000-5 LE.
The trip brought me to the impressive Ox Ranch, which consists of 18,000 acres of rugged and scenic Texas hill country landscape loaded with both exotic and domestic game animals. The gathered media, however, werenít going to be hunting exotic species Ė we were going after the plague of Texas farmers and ranchersÖferal hogs.
As an avid archer, I was hoping to take down a hog with my new Prime Centergy Hybrid hunting bow. Ox Ranch had a turkey target on hand that I could practice on, but with all the activity on the ranch, the hogs were in hiding during the day and I got shut out. Fortunately, Honda offered up a unique opportunity to bag a Texas hog.
