If you want to come down to Texas and hunt hogs first off you will need a hunting license. Second look at some of the big ranches down here some will charge from 250 a person to 1000, just do some research so you don't get screwed. Like no kill no pay. Good luck in your search .

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!
What other brands or models of NV have you used or recommend. I live in open country and shoot a lot coyotes and would like to see and shoot at 500 yds. What would you buy if funds weren't the option ?

All of the NV stuff that I've looked thru would work out to around 300 yards max.
I'm sure some of the really expensive stuff $10K and up would probably be able to be used at longer ranges,but I don't know if you could see yotes or hogs well enough to shoot them at that range.

Why would you shoot any animal under low light conditions at 300-500 yards. How can you focus and control a shot with in a 12" area in the dark at 500 yards? An animal taking a slow death "Gut" shot in the dark at 500 yards will die slowly in the Sage brush. Why?

Nite is right.

I never hated any animal. The critter is just making a living the best way he can. I did kill a sidewinder with a lot of anger. The damn thing bit my Gordon Setter for no reason.
I have always harvested animals for meat and hides. That said I believe in respect for the animal that is killed. That most likely reflects my young years hunting with people of the First Nations.

"Take Only What you need"
With game animals this is true...

Feral Hogs are not game animals. They are an invasive destructive species that also happen to taste pretty good.

I'm looking forward to my future hog hunt and hoping to do it "cowboy style" with a lever action rifle and an S/A Army... To keep it sporting and all.

Hogs are like Green Eggs and Ham... I'd kill em in the day, I'd kill em in the hay, I'd kell em in the dark, I'd kill em for a lark!

Tack

I thought you only have to have a hunting license to hunt feral hogs on public land?
My understanding is you can hunt them on private property with no need of a license, as long as you are a guest of the land owner? Unless being an out of state hunter requires a license?

Any animal that requires a hunting licenses is a game animal. Great herds of Elk 1,000s at a time do incredible damage to ranch and public range.
In Texas Hogs are a very Big cash crop for land owners. They charge very high fees to kill these problem hogs. I fish near Sea Drift, Txs and there are many hogs. That said, you will pay big bucks for every hog you shoot.

No Texas game law require you to have a hunting license, all game animals. Even though they are nuisance animal and cause a lot of damage.
