Sabinal, Texas, the Gateway to the Texas Hill Country
This small Texas town is located 13 miles west of the Co-op.
One of the major attractions is the annual Wild Hog Festival
held in late March. Wild hogs of all sizes are trapped on local
ranches. Two contestants are placed in a circular arena and a hog
is released for them to catch, place in a large bag and then drag
across a line. The fastest time in each age group wins. Age
groups range from 3-5 year olds catching baby hogs to adults
catching BIG hogs. Lots of excitement! Here are some short
