Re: Hogs Take over Texas

I wish I could have some of those hogs in Ecuador to shoot at.
That would be awesome

    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.
    On this one I have to respond !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    First of all Texans are some of the most frendly people in the world !!!!

    When driving down the road and you meet another car/truck comming your
    way 90% of the time they will wave even though they dont know you.

    In california ( The land of fruits and nuts ) don't even think about waveing
    at anyone or you will ether be mugged,cursed,or sexually assalted.

    If your car breaks down in texas someone will stop and help you .

    In california if you break down call the police fast and hope they find you because
    NO One will ever stop unless it's to do the aforementioned things to you.

    As far as the land owners go it is commond courtesy to ask for permision to
    go on anyones land no matter what state your in. most of Texas land is leased
    by hunters for year round hunting and the land owners cannot allow anyone
    on his land unless he has the approvel of the lease holders.

    Land owners have to protect them selves from law suits so most hunters sign a
    hold harmless contract.

    I have worked in California many years and I met some realy nice people but the
    percentage is very small compaired to Texas and most other states.

    I don't believe in dishing other states but I do resent others talking about Texas when
    they don't have a clue about it.

    And by the way I have invited many hunters on my lease but I don't think you have
    to worry about a " Free " hunt any time soon, But there are high fenced hunts for
    your type if you have money and no frends.

    We also take young under privileged hunters on special youth hunts each year and
    these land owners support us .

    Well I have said enough but as the signs says "DON"T MESS WITH TEXAS"

    I agree I have run into nothing but kind folks since moving to Texas. I really love this state.

    Now how does one go about getting a lease? Any place in particular I need to look?

    Had a great weekend.. Went out with Long450, not only was I happy just to be invited along ,but they also put me on the blind with the most hog evidence. Food and drink was all supplied. I have to admit I was very taken back by all this kindness. Even though I didn't get any shots off, hogs were moving around in the late night, I still had a great time. I thank him kindly for taking me along.

    Also Long450 i am picking up a night vision scope this week to handle those late night mover if you are interested. Next project to get will be a can for my .223...

    J E, I have ties to Texas, so "I do have a clue!"

    I'm not dissing Texas, I'm just pointing out that despite all the hoo-rah about the destructive hog overpopulation, Texans are not eager to have people hunting hogs on their land.

    You're right, California sucks...except you can play golf in January.

    BTW, the Navy sent me here.

    Kingrabbit, glad you came along and had a good time. I would have lost a good sum of money, if I had bet, because I was certain you would get and oppurtunity in stand # 3 to tag a pig or two. I see your note about the night vision and that might do the trick. Send me and email and tell again when you leave. We may can go back out and give it another shot. Its a full moon this week and the land owner would like some of those pigs gone.

    Oh, BTW next time you get to cook the steaks! Ken
