This doesn't make sense. I'm from Texas and I hog hunt with my dogs when I can and know the feral hogs have babies at 6 mos and every 6 months thereafter so this seems to be a ban on hog hunting unless you're the landowner and you have to get a hunting permit? Doesn't make sense to me bec those feral hogs are outbreeding every wild animal out there.

The damage is unbelievable. I live in Austin and its been raining quite a bit but I'm from East Texas where there's a lot more water and hogs, lol. I'm seriously considering a move to Wichita where my girlfriend lives so any job leads would be most appreicated. Thanks.
