New to this site, just wanted to post some pics of the hogs we have been seeing out here in east tx. the pic doesn't do it justice, was a real monster. Will post more later. Tell me what yall think...Matt
YA THEY ARE REALLY GETTING OUT OF CONTROL. EVERY PASTURE IS ROOTED UP. I DONT EVEN KNOW HOW MANY WE HAVE TAKEN THIS YEAR. I AM RUNNING 3 TRAPS ON 200 ACRES, BUT THEY HAVE GOTTEN TO SMART FOR THAT. I GET SOME IN THE TRAPS ONLY EVERY COUPLE WEEKS. -- YA THAT IS A SPARK PLUG SOCKET IN HIS MOUTH, IT WAS IN THE BED OF THE TRUCK. HA, WELL GOOD HUNTIN
Ya i have tried locking the doors up, but i havent really noticed a diffrence. I think they are just getting used to seeing them and know to stay away. Ya i used a rifle, we were spot lighting and he ran down into a creek bottom. We couldnt find him then noticed him haulin towards a fence line with some thick woods behind him. He got right up to the fence and stopped. Was using a 7mm dropped him in one shot, then finished it with a head shot when we got close and saw what we were dealing with. ha it was hell getting him in the bed of the truck.
Moose calling can get confusing to some, but cow calling is your main tool when moose hunting. If you go out and buy moose calls I would say you're wasting your money unless it is the birch bark cone. I find most store bought moose calls sounding worse than puffing a grunt your hands to make the call. You can roll up a piece of birch bark in a cone shape to use as a call and spend your money on a video that teaches you the basics of a cow call. A milk jug or a coffee can with a hole and a rope...
