I had the pleasure of helping my 62-year-old father kill his first duck this morning. It was a great experience for both of us.

That's a good pic, my dad got his first duck w me christmas morning. He nailed a sky high gadwall and it fell like a rock 200 yrds away. I told him don't shoot em so high. He says why, we came to hunt, I can hit em. To this day my dad's still the best shot I've ever seen or hunted with. Not making up for sky blasting but he doesn't miss. It's crazy and he's 65. Love my dad.

That is awesome and almost the exact same scenario of dad's first duck.

A small group made their first pass up very high. Dad shot. As I was saying "let them get closer", the Gaddy came falling down.

Where is a good spot to go in? I've hesitated with the water still being up.

Went this am it was the slowest it's been all season. Luckily I had a really good spot, it's been a long season for me. Glad ducks are over. I did manage to find the pig super highway finally, now to be on pig patrol and pick one off.

Hey Pervis -

I went out earlier this week and found what you had previously found: deer tracks but no pigs (in a place where there used to be TONS).

Glad your subsequent trip led to the "superhighway". Water lever is still really high. I am going to try to north of where I usually go and see what I can find.

Yeah they've totally gotten moved by the high water. Like u said areas where there used to be tons are now only tracked by deer. The game has changed w the flooding. IL be out today later trying myself again.

Well I found em. Yet to lay eyes on em in this particular spot, I did get em on cam at 840pm. W the cloud cover moving in today I'm on my way now to see if they're out during the day.

Please report ladder stands, feeders and other illegal stuff to a game warden. Take a GPS reading to send them and they normally will collect the stuff. People that don't care about the rules for hunting hogs are likely poaching deer too. I hunt alone a lot and I feel better hunting around honest people than crooks so let's do our best to discourage those folks from hunting the little public land we have.

I've been looking at coming out to Lewisville to see about getting a hog. I feel like I have the only 105 acres of land in East Texas that doesn't have hogs on it. Plus, my desire to drive two hrs is nil... This post has been really helpful. At least I know they are out there and someone has ACTUALLY laid eyes on them. Now to pay my dues and put in the work to find the "Super Highway" - that's funny.

pervis - I may hit you up. I'm in Coppell and get off work at 3pm, so running up to Lewisville or Grapevine is NO problem.

Well, it never suprises me...went out today, just to ride around no bow no shotgun, just me and the kids. Went to check to see if the water levels had come down. And today I got to see an animal I've never seen on public before. TuRKEYS. Like I said never suprises me, no gun no bow and it's turkey season and sob I had two walk out in front of me.

Honestly, Ive tried to hunt spring turkey many yrs ago. That was the only time. I'd have to Google the dates. Those were the only 2 thunder chickens I've ever seen out there.

I live close to lake lew and have seen Turkey walking through the neighborhood on occasion. Just kinda seems like you have to be in the right place right time, I do not think the population is huge. I think there are a lot more closer to Ray Roberts. Good luck to y'all.

A few years ago, TPWD do stocked six sets of Rios on the south side of Lake Lewisville at the LISDOLA. They could have migrated to the north side maybe. And I know I saw a turkey one day in a field off 428 before the greenbelt. That is just a small bit away from where you are.

It would be totally awesome to see a somewhat huntable population of them here in Denton county, because I can remember when there were no deer around these parts.

Well...I suck. Saw a hog snuck up on him. He was about 40 yards out he turned and busted me. I took the shot and missed. Then right at dark had a pack of 30 come out my buddy flanked em, and they came right to me. Down on 1 knee I tried to shoot the lead hog and missed again. They all broke I had a piglet I could of kicked w my foot. We ll it was a good hunt. Promised my buddy hogs took my son who is not even quiet, and yes we both got shots off, but no kills.

Anybody know where to launch a boat on Lake Lewisville during duck season? From what I see online, all of the boat ramps close overnight and open no earlier than 7am.

There are some ramps available 24/7. They either have automated kiosks or don't require fees.

Thanks. I will call around once there are more ramps open to ask. I think there are only 2 or 3 ramps open on the lake right now.

I use Ye ole Butcher in Plano

There is also a place on 380 called the Outpost in between Denton and McKinney
A member here just took it over. Might be worth a shot, before he took it over I wasn't thrilled with the processing from them. Tried it twice.
Nothing bad just like Ye Ole Butchers sausage much better

Man, stumbling on this thread makes me even more bummed about being out of state for work when permits were released. I sure could use a close huntin' spot to scratch the itch. Don't get to go all that often when my other spots are 2 hours away. How are the pigs this year?
