They're there. It's growing back very thick where the flooding had killed the vegatation off. Got a teal and a dove today. IL be out again in the am after teal.

Saw a ton of pigs along the greenbelt last year while paddling. If anyone has a canoe, it's an easy way to put some pork in the freezer.
That sounds fun. You shoot them from the boat?

I don't think it is legal in Texas to fire a weapon from a boat. I know it is definitely illegal for game species, but not completely positive for non game.

Anybody been out after pigs lately? I went out to the COD land on the north side back in October and it was so thick you could see more than a few feet. Thinking about heading out there this weekend and hoping some of the vegetation has died off.

I had two walk up next to my duck hunting boat last weekend, within 10 yards. Now I may start packing the bow on duck hunts!

Default Lake Lewisville

Did a few hours out there today.

The wind was out of the south, so I decided to hit the peninsula south of 380. Saw two hunters on their way out while I was on my way in.

I did jump a small fork horn buck and could have taken a coyote. I wasnít quite sure if rules and regs allowed me to take the yote, so I let it walk. A few fresh deer scat piles, a few old pig rutting locations, but very little fresh pig sign.

With the lake down, you may try north of 380 or over off 2181/ old Alton

I suggest trying the east side of the lake, south of 380. I know for a fact there is a decent sized sounder in that area. I saw two today just after 1pm within eye shot of Jacobs liquor store.

So in summation, directly south of rock hill road is the place to be.

Okay I have a question(s). In order to get a permit for this place, do you have to be there in person or can you buy one through the mail? Does the permit only allow for specific dates or it is valid for entire season?

I looked it up hunting for Lake Lewis. It looks like deer are not allowed to be hunted there. Only hogs and turkey. Everything else is small game or waterfowl.

Yes no deer, the permits are long gone too for this yr. To obtain one you have to do it in person.
