If you take BB hunting hogs he's liable to take a shot at a coyote and laugh so hard he can't shoot for an hour!!

Re: Hogs Take over Texas

I guess this post is FYI because its not going to help anyone very much but as J E Custom said finding a place more friendly than Texas will be a hard chore. In my community if your dog is in the road and someone runs over it they will find out who owns it and tell you about it then offer to replace it with what ever you want.

I have lived in Motley Co for 60 years and have hunted for 53 of those years mostly around my home as it has pretty well furnished everything I ever wanted to hunt. I have a good friend that was raised at Crowell Tx and he always talked about how bad the hogs were there and told stories of how much damage they did. At the time I thought to myself how I wish that I had some on my place to hunt and there's no way they could be as destructive as he said. WRONG!!! What they won't tear up they poop on. Our state game biologist said that to maintain an even population we have to kill 80% of the population each year and that ain't gonna happen. The state brings in a helicopter several times during the winter to kill off what they can and have killed over 600 a day several times in my area. A couple of months back they came and shot 42 behind my house and several days later came back and shot some more and that night my neighbor and myself drove around his field and seen 30 more and this was a mile from my house. We've been pretty open minded who we let hunt and this summer we let some people hunt and one of them was from Wisconson. As a joke I told them what I wanted for my calves and cows if they should shoot one and guess what, yep they shot a calf but they owned up to it. I would have never known what happened to it if they had not been honest. I could have lost $800 dollars just as easy as them paying for it. I got lucky, they were good people! These kind of experiences leave you with mixed emotions about letting people hunt. Also these incidents educate the whole community on guest hunters and sometimes the education is not a positive thing. This relates to what LewisH posted.

Here the hogs seem to "hole up" during the summer months when everything greens up and they seem to roam around during the winter months. Feeders work great but if you shoot them at the feeder they change their feeding habits or move to another area. Shooting them in a field doesn't seem to affect their schedule as much for some reason. I think this is why some days you see a hundred and for a week or more you might not see a single one.

The only thing that comes to mind that they seen to help with is snakes. We just don't have many snakes anymore but that can also be said about Turkeys and Quail. They will eat ANYTHING dead or alive.

Sorry about the drivel, guess I just had to say something.

Re: Hogs Take over Texas

How hard or expensive is it to hog hunt in Texas if your out of state?
What is the best time of year?
And were would be a good area to hunt? I have a friend That lives in San Antonio, anything in that area?

I know its a lot of questions, but it sounds like it could be easy, conveniant, and beneficial to the state. Any resources would also be appreciated.

Thanks,

Ryan

Re: Hogs Take over Texas

You can find places for free, but about $200 to $300 per weekend with a place to stay is the going rate. Within 75 miles of San Antonio should be several places. The spring or early fall is a good time to hunt. Summer is OK, but hot!!! Hogs move more at night in the summer. Also summer provides more snakes that can be a problem. Winter is fine to hunt, but deer hunting takes precedence and most landowners do not allow hog hunters that might upset the deer hunters. In Texas you can hunt at night with a light, but hogs become light shy pretty quick. Your freind should be able to find a place for you to go. If they can't find a place PM me and I will give you a name. Good luck!!
