Re: Hogs Take over Texas

I live South of Houston and am getting preped for 1 Sept. hunting season with my 300 WM. Still working up my round and may have found a lease within 2 hours of Houston. I am going to the Barns tipped TSX 180 grain for hunting and would appreciate and advice in getting ready for the season.

    Not much preparation required. Get a weapon you are familar with and variable scope that goes down to around 3 to 6 power for the early and late, low light, situations. The 300 WSM will do its part easily. If you want the meat, shoot the ones between 80 and 150 pounds in the lungs (shoulder) so they will bleed out. If you are not meat hunting, just shoot them in the head. They are pretty much creatures of habit and are good to follow patterns. Once you figure that out, just ambush them! A couple us went last week and got 6 over 2 days. All with 22-250 and 55 gr bullets. Good luck!!

    That will work. I have a Zeis Conquest 2.5-14 44mm, not the best in low light but it will work. Yes I am a meat hunter and love sausage!

    Leaving 7/29/09 to go to our S. Texas lease to kill a few hogs. We see them on our game cameras 2AM in the morning. They get smart pretty fast and get nocturnal.

    I would like to find someone over there in S. Texas that would let my son and I come thin some out for them. I mix them 1/2 and 1/2 with domestic pig and it makes pretty good sausage .

    Hogs problems close to Dallas,tx? Just asking cause I know some folks an hour from Dallas.

    And about CA? Supposively the 9th most powerful country in the world if it was a country instead of a state...they are also crushed with hogs. Landowners complain, we hunters come up offering a solution. Some landowner say sure, you can have as many hogs as you want for $500 ea... this is funny at first but....

    Man, I need to read the Bible to clear my senses up.

    We have some on our new lease by Victoria, but I have not seen them in person yet.

    Funny looking devils, must be razor backs....
