not eating it is no reason to avoid hog hunting. The entire population needs to be eradicated, regardless of whether the meat is used or not.

Iíve always been keen on eating my catch... but if anyone with land who needs them gone I definitely donít mind killing them. Used to hunt on about 2,000 acres up until last year from owner having legal problems, hogs were definitely ruining the ground.

Flounderrr , my farm is in Union Grove on the way to Guntersville Alabama. Farmer that is leasing the acreage planted corn this year so I'm sure they will show up as I've seen them on the acreage each fall. Got a nice 5 point shed this spring. Trail cam will tell when I get there this September.

Nice! They have some good deer out that way, and that corn sure will bring them out!
I had a good spot on some nearby public land a couple years ago that was adjacent to a corn field. I could always count on seeing some does and even got a shot at a nice 10pt. The next year they planted cotton and it was a ghost town.

I was firmly against it but i went with a friend a few years back since the land was just down the road and i was suprised on how many deer i saw. It had nicer bucks on the public land than the dang hunt club i was driving 2 hours away to hunt.

Im not as mad at em as use to be but yeah, already sprayed and Fixin to start hogging trails, plots and disking. We plant around first of October and look foreword to it every year. Starting to hog tomorrow.

Us older folks now a days with help of the young ones have work days and go about 3 weekends trimming, hogging, planting and getting things ready and let them younguns hunt and we watch a couple TVs watching football at the camp under the big lean to.

My favorite time time of year is coming. Fall weather, kids shooting deer and football.

.


I grew up in SE VA, so all the deer i see out here look like monsters compared to the ones i saw growing up.

we had a work day at the hunt club saturday and i showed them the bucks i got on camera. Their only response was "...why the hell are you in the club all the way out here if you got bucks like that running around in your back yard...". It was pretty funny.

I convinced the wife to let me section off an acre from the horses and plant some white clover. If i can get those bucks to hang around before rifle opens, i may have a chance.

Yes, Iím looking forward to the start of deer season
I have started practicing shooting the guns I have chosen for this year. Ruger 7mm Remington magnum, AR-15 in 300 blackout, for hogs AR-15 in 5.56 with night scope for hogs.
I also bow hunt shooting a wicked ridge crossbow- I got it out checked the string and cables, made sure it was spot on out to 30 yards.

Not in Texas! ~98% of the state is private land. The Parks and Wildlife department has been developing a lottery system to allow the public to hunt in state and federal parks and on private land. Its a great system with a HUGE variety of species to hunt. Me and a group of friends have been putting in for pretty much everything for a few years and finally got drawn to hunt the Guadalupe River State Park last year. The hunts are mid-week and they close down the entire park to the general public. It was awesome, 1200 acres and 11 hunters for 3 1/2 days. Its a population control hunt and they want you to shoot as many exotics as possible with the exception of axis bucks. They save those for kid hunts which I thought was pretty cool. White-tail anterless and spikes only. I got one axis doe and two white tails. The hunt was early last november and I'm still eating those animals!

Some parts of Bama, like MS has some dam good deerraz. But not for most part. A lotta of sandy soil. Which donít grow good groceries no matter what ya plant. Have to supplement protein and carbs.

Gettin closer.
