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.
Let me start off by saying I am not a farmer.
I am a deer hunter and I do own a tractor and have all of the equipment - but that does not make you a farmer any more than standing in the garage makes you a car - well, you get the picture!
Having said that - and with most of my ineptitude fairly well hidden - I do think that buckwheat is one of the most under rated cover crops out there.
I say cover crop because I see mixed results as it relates to the deer eating the plants.
