The Smith Ranch has been in the family since 1939 when the family first settled on the property in Centerville, Texas. There have been 4 generations now living on the ranch. The ranch is a working cattle ranch and hay farm. Danny and Jean Smith built their home back in 1973 and started allowing family & friends the ability to hog hunt on the 1700 acres. Danny developed an initial 50 acre hunting area in 1987 that was exclusive for the hog hunts. In the early 1990’s, he started commercially hunting the property and now has 425 exclusive hog hunting acres. This ranch quickly grew to become one of the most popular places in Texas and the U.S to hunt the wild hog! Today the property has had hunters and guests from all 50 U.S. states; including Alaska and Hawaii along with folks from other countries like China. The Smith Ranch has also been featured in many outdoor hunting shows such as “A-Way Outdoors” with Greg Abbott, “Closing the Distance”, “The Deer Hunter”, “Backwoods Experience”, and many more.
Each pound over 100 pounds result in an additional $1.50 per pound.

All wounds are considered kills-fees apply. No half day hunts.
Most rifles are acceptable to hunt with. Remember you only need to take down the hog. You do not need to destroy the whole animal. Calibers that are too large may not be allowed. If you have a question, please call us and we will let you know.
