Hog hunting/Texas
« on: March 08, 2010, 08:50:30 pm »
How does hog hunting in Texas work?  I heard there are too many in that state.  Can you just shoot them or do you need to get tags?  And how much do the tags cost?
CaliforniaThere are many like it, but this one is mine.

    No tags needed.  They're a nuisance and most farmers/ranchers will let you on their property to do away with them for free.

    Oh!  I'm down for that!  Can one bag as much as they'd like?

    As many as you'd like. :)

    Personally I want to take my .357 down on a night ride at my local bike trails and catch a few of them wallowing near the side of the trail.

    Cal Poly said I couldn't have none (got a letter today).  Still waiting on A&M.  And if not, I'll just do CC and work out a transfer in two years time.  Besides, I think I need some more time to prepare myself for higher math.

    Regardless, I want to return to Texas someday.  I want me some pig with a 91/30 + bayonet.

    Be careful trying to bayonet them, you really don't want one of these to bite you:

    I'll get it in the eye. I mean the Mosin bayo is the size of a small child and the rifle is already the length of an oar.  And I'll use the buddy system.  :devillol

    FMJ, I'm pretty sure you would need this:

    "Non-resident 5-Day Special Hunting (Type 157): $48
    Legal for any period of 5 consecutive days (valid hunting dates will be printed on the license when issued). Valid to hunt: Exotic animals, all legal game birds (except turkeys), all nongame animals, squirrel, javelina and alligator (not valid for other game animals, NOT VALID FOR DEER). Stamp endorsement requirements apply."

    Texas land owners can kill feral hogs (and coyotes) that are destroying their property without a hunting license but if I understand the law correctly everybody else needs a hunting license.

    All the land owners I know charge a fee to hunt hogs on their land. Hog hunting up here in North Central Texas runs around $100.00 a night but usually if you don't kill a hog they will let you come back and hunt again for free. There is no season or bag limit on hogs. Normally we hunt hogs from a stand overlooking a feeder.

    Wow, I never knew you actually needed a license for that....

    And in East Texas people will let you hunt them for free. Most of the guys around that are run them with dogs and kill them with knives.

    Are you talking about the Dogo Argentino breed?  I saw a 5 min video on nat & Geo about that.
