    Has anyone hunted with Pope Brothers Guide Service out of Utopia Texas? I am considering a Bobcat and predator hunt with them next winter. Any info would be appreciated.

    thanks

    Never hunted with them myself but I have heard good things about them. You might try this question on the Texas Hunting Forum and get a better response.

    Hunted with them several years ago and had a decent enough time. Trip was not the most successful for me, and the weather was tough for calling so only a few of us were successful. Getting trophies back was tough. Make sure you alot enough time to get your hides stamped so you can take them with you. Or book with an outfitter who is registered to stamp hides.

    The above post makes more sense when attached to the appropriate comment. LOL

    Thanks for the posts guys. After considerable research I have booked for next Feb. The Called cougar intrigued me as well but this time we will be after Bobcat and Gray Fox (the species we do not have here at home). As stated you cant fight the weather and that was the one rider that Clay plainly stated as the biggest factor in calling, especially for Bobcat, so we will keep our fingers crossed. We are booked on the dark moon so the #2 factor is under control at least. I will also be after something that has interested me for a long time, Javelina. Im sure we will have a great time and Christine is really looking forward to it.
