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. They eat quail eggs and fawns here if they can't get away fast enough....is hog dog hunting allowed with dogs?
Hey Ted , Welcome to BGH I find a lot of our regs. don't make a whole lot of sense. It sounds like their main reason for banning it was to keep people from releasing domesticated hogs in the wild for hunting later on.
You been getting any rain down there?
I'm laughing at the ban..hogs will be there sooner or later and the farmers will be screaming for hunters because here in TX one hog contimiates 4 acres and they tend to run in groups called sounders. 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.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
