Definitely in Travis county. I've seen tracks on the river bank of the Colorado while kayaking just east of 183.

I hunt on the north side of lake Travis, far northwest corner, and just here in the last two years we’ve finally had pigs start showing up on our game cameras. I kinda expected we’d kill our first one out there last year, but it didn’t happen. This year I’ve got a hog light set on the feeder that gets the most action, and I’ve done ten sits now without a glimpse of pork. They’re there, just not thick yet.

I hunted the north shore off Singleton Bend Road +/- 12 years ago for a few years. Hogs only come through once or twice per year. Landowner said that's how it's always been.

But don't worry if TBH is correct you will be covered up with pigs, they will destroy your property, and you'll never get rid of them any day now.

I've got friend that works in that area as a biologist. He recommended to some of the HOA's that didn't allow hunting on small tracts should allow residents to hunt their back yards out of their kiddos play sets.

I’ve seen them all over Travis county west of Mopac. We’ve also got them up here in Cedar Park; plenty of residents in our neighborhood don’t understand why a few of us are concerned.
