Re: Hogs Take over Texas

I was really bummed this past deer season. The bow hunters stuck a lot of hogs on our lease during bow season and they went nocturnal before rifle season opened. Didn't see one during hunting hours the entire deer season, Nov through Jan 5. They only came out at night and hid in the deep woods during the day.

Re: Hogs Take over Texas

Man, if I lived down there and had places to shoot them I'd be out as much as I could. I would do the same as some of the deer up here, either find a family that could use the meat, or see if there was any organization that would take the carcass (Hunters Feeding the Hungry, etc.)

When I lived in Southern Ca. and came back from some of the long range fishing trips on the ocean the Mormon Church would take any excess fish (in the round) and give you a reciept that equalled the market price of the fish. They would process them for the needy. Both parties were a winner. Tax write-off and food for someone that needs it to boot.

We try to do the same thing here in Texas but like everything else that the politicians and
tree huggers get involved in they screwed the Feed the poor program up because "Wild animals"
are not safe to eat .

So we just kill what we want to eat and leave the rest for the scavengers.

We normaly kill 8 to 10 per hunter during dear season and about the same the rest of the year
and they just keep multiplying.

A lot of people think that if they shoot a hog that it will ruin there dear hunt, Just the opposite,
because as long as the hogs are arround dear will not come to your hunting area.

I have killed hogs and not moved from my stand/hide and in a few minutes dear would appear
and actualy go up to the dead pig and look at him and walk off unafraid.

So we kill everyone we see.

They are fun to shoot and a timed feeder works the best because when they hear it go off they
can't wait ( That why they are called hogs ).

Don't hold you breath, Kingrabbit.

One thing ya gotta know, for all their talk about the hog plague, Texans don't cotton to outsiders (or even neighbors) coming on their property to shoot hogs.

...and that's the plain truth.

Since they make some (or a lot) of their money for the year through hunting leases and day hunts, that's understandable...
