The gate kinda looks familiar.

I hunted Sam Houston for several years.

You are required to have an annual hunting permit in addition to the regular Texas hunting license and there was (is?) a season for hunting hogs in the Sam Houston National Forest. It basically ran from the beginning of bow season until March 15th.

I only mention this becauses I would hate to see someone get a ticket or whatever for hunting out of season on federal land.

I have ran into the game warden quite often when hunting there also.

We are now on a lease about 30 to 40 minutes east of there ...

dwm can you point me in the direction of these regs? I looked extensively and what I found basically stated that once you purchased the APH permit you could hunt anything in season per state regs and seeing as TX has no season on hogs that leaves it open year round.

Did you get the book that came with the APH?

Normally the restrictions are printed on each map, so look up Sam Houston National Forest in the book and see what it says.

Here is an Acrobat file showing Sam Houston National Forest and the regulations:

http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/publicat..._0112a_905.pdf

Page 2 of the .pdf file shows:

Feral Hog: (no bag limit). General Season: Sept. 29-Jan. 6, Jan. 12-20, and Feb. 1-Mar. 30. All legal means allowed. Dogs may be used to hunt feral hogs during the Feb. 1-Mar. 30 period.

Re: Hogs Take over Texas

I hope they can find a way to cut back on the number of hogs. On our lease in Brady, TX ,13 seasons ago we saw 2 hogs and thought it would be great to have their presance on the lease. The next year we saw 200, and the following year I killed close to 100, deer season alone.

They are terrible, they run off the deer, break down the fences, eat any thing you leave out.

Can not say enough bad about them.

I do not think that can slow them down, even if they kill or trap a few thousand, they will bounce right back.
