Hunting And Fishing Rates
The first question people ask is, "What are your hunting and fishing rates?"
Hunting RatesOur rates for one person hunting is $800 per day. For 2 people to a maximum of 4 people, our rate is $500 per person per day.
We do allow pighunting with dogs, but please note that if you are bringing dogs, a deposit of $500 is required for your dogs. The deposit will be refunded to you when all dogs leave the property.
Some of our hunters like to hunt for bulls as well as pigs. If you are interested in hunting a trophy bull, the cost is $400-$500 depending on the size of the bull you get.
Fishing RatesIf fishing is your preference instead of hunting, we've got great fishing around here. The fishing rates are $300 per day per person with all meals, accommodation, and guide provided. You will need to bring your own fishing gear with you.
Camping PackageFor those who simply want to camp and fish on their own without a guide, we charge $100 per day per adult and only $25 per day per child (with no pig hunting included).
You will need to provide your own meals and supplies. A boat and outboard motor (with fuel) can be hired for $100 per day (limited number of boats available).
Travel ArrangementsHow you arrive at Southwell Station is up to you. You are welcome to drive all the way, but here are some additional options available that are not included in our hunting and fishing rates.
