people hunt them all over the state. the biggest thing is they breed and multiply very quickly. they can survive on many things other animals can't and they are very disease tolerant. the smaller ones are very good eating as well when cooked properly. there is no limit or hunting season as they are considered nuisance animals, not game animals.

I would like to plan a spring hunt, find some ranches who have some problems with the pigs. It would be fun to help some ranchers who don't have the time but need some help.

Axxe...

I've been gunning for a Construction project in Texas for awhile now just so I can go kill some hogs on the companies dime...have not popped one yet, but I will.

What are the best towns/areas for this?

lots of people post on Craigslist either looking for people to get rid of their feral hogs or people looking to hunt them.

About 5 years ago my buddy called me up because he had a massive hog problem on his land outside Normangee. I went up there to take care of it and there was so many that I ended up killing 5 pigs with only 2 bullets from a .308

I was up there this past December and although there was plenty of hog signs, we didn't see even one.

There are feral hogs almost anywhere in the state of Texas.
The problem is almost all land owners are greedy,and want you to pay them for removing their problem.
I refuse to pay someone to help them get rid of the feral hogs,they can just keep them,and let them destroy their property.

Hogs are very smart,and they stay on the move. I hunt them all the time on my friends ranch on the Red River.One week there will be several herds running around,and the next week,you can't find a single hog.
They are almost always nocturnal after they have been hunted in an area,and sometimes they will come to feeders and traps,other times they just tear up acre's of farmland in the open. You just never know where or when they will show up on his property,and he has several thousand acres.
We drive to one part that shows fresh sign of them,and when we drive somewhere else,they have just dug up about 5 acres of a hay field,and are no where to be found. It gets to be very frustrating at times trying to figure out where they are.

That's in the plans. I'm going to put a Pulsar N550 digital nightvision scope on my LR-260 AR-10 as soon as I can afford it.

Right now we are using a couple Laser Genetics ND-3 lasers on our rifles,and also the bigger handheld ND-5,along with a remote controlled GO Light on the roof of my truck and also handheld spotlights.
If they are within 300 yards of us at night,they die!
