Lets simplify this. Essentially, hogs DO NOT have to be tagged when shot and there is NO bag limit.

However, Texas still requires you to have an active hunting license to hunt these animals. The reason is simple, they want the money you pay for a license.

As far as people CHARGING money for others to shoot their hogs.... never heard of such a thing. Could be that in my part there is so many of them they dont grow very big and therefore not worth much. I have even heard of people paying "professional" trappers to come out and take care of there problem. I guess it just pays to have a friend with some land and a hog problem and who is always willing to let you come out and have some fun

That was my question ??? In the day light I can take the shot out to 500 yds with confidence but I have never used any NV optics so I wanted to know how far this stuff works.

The only NV Optics I trained with was the old AN PVS 4 Starlight Scope and I'm pretty sure they were Nam Era issue. Ft. Benning had em mounted on M16A1's w/bi-pods and we shot a moving target course that may have been 300 Meters but I'm really not sure... Could have only been 200.

That was a wierd scope with the reticle offset in one of the quadrants but once we had the hang of it, it was actually quite easy to hit with.

I'm sure the newer Gen's are better but I'd be concerned with how well you can identify "what's beyond" a target with these in a hunting situation...

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?
The only way in Texas that you don't need a hunting license is if you are the land owner,and you reside on that property.
Other than that,everyone that hunts has to have a hunting license. Whether it's a game animal/exotic/varmint/or nuisance animal.

It did not take long for Texas landowners to try to profit from the hog hunts. Not so long ago they would pay a bounty for hogs killed on their property. Now they want you to pay for the privelege.

It is almost impossible to hunt in Texas w/o paying.

Hell, if someone found it fun to shoot grasshoppers with a BB-gun, there would be land owners that would try to profit from it.

If I'm going to have to pay, I'll skip the hogs and go for deer.

That's why I have a year round lease,I can hunt hogs all year long for the price of a deer hunting lease.
