That is how I understand it. Have to wait until deer season is over. I had a landowner meet me at my truck the other day. He wasn't happy. They banned hog hunting, but not squirrel hunting.

He tried to tell me that ALL hunting was not allowed during deer season. I pulled out a copy of the rules and showed it to him in black and white. I actually thought it was kind of funny.

The problem isnít just a few shots. Itís these weekend warriors firing off several hundred rounds with their AR. Or maybe they donít know itís not legal to target practice on Corp land. Eye roll.

I was the only one in this unit that I know of. 5 shots 5 squirrels. I was not blasting away. The guy wanted to call the GW before I showed him the COE print out.

Bushwacker- He said he was squirrel hunting and the LO met him at his truck. Youíd have to assume that a sane man wouldnít be squirrel hunting near a bunch of yahoos firing off ARís. The LO specifically pointed out ďno huntingĒ not ďno target practiceĒ or ďno re-enactments of Black hawk downĒ.

So, OP I assume you are sane, hope Iím right.

While I donít disagree that firing off ARís happens and is a problem- itís a separate issue from this, clearly.

No longer eye rolling just speaking plainly. Happy New Year.

I grew up and started on squirrels. I would love to get the ol .410 out for some one day. I heard gunshots all night till 130 am when I was bowhunting Saturday nigh. Shotguns sounded like. Can you shoot shotguns at night on core?

Sorry to hear this. I've been going out there since back in the 70's and never heard anyone having a problem. Hope they get the punks.

Crackheads are everywhere. That sucks but good to know. Between what hours did this occur? I've been leaving my truck between 5am-9:30/10 around Lavon with no issues

I've hunted ducks ouy there in the winter for the last couple of years, but haven't gone after hogs yet. Do you guys sit in stands over night or still hunt at twilight?

My soap box

Maybe hunters should place a hidden camera in there vehicle or some where near by in the event of a break in of any vehicle or poaching or illegal dumping or junkies or any other crime. That might help put criminals were they belong:behind bars or under P.O. supervision. There by making it a little safer for hunters and all others that enjoy the great outdoors.
IMHOP : Ill gotten goods is theft and should be addressed.
Rules, regulations and laws are there to protect.
It ****** me off when the hog hunting rules changed because of thieving poachers. So now people have to wait just to hunt an invasive species because of a few selfish people.
Now we have to watch out for thieves and vandals. If I see that happening I"ll snitch and worry about the stitches later. This is not Oak Cliff or Pleasant Grove. Stand up , speak up ,report or just be present and looking.

There's a pretty good chance the ones being "selfish" are surrounding land owners.

I was out there a few weeks ago. It was very overgrown. Not much point out there now unless you're chasing squirrels. As hog hunting is banned until deer season is over.

The permit if free at the lake office.

How can we go about getting this ban reversed?

I believe the local Backcountry Hunters and Anglers group has been trying to work with the Corps to get a number of things improved for hunters but Iím not sure of their progress. Look them up.

Feral hog hunting will not be allowed in all areas during archery and general deer season dates as noted for Collin County
Either the private landowners around there have the corp in their back pocket or the hunting program there is run by a bunch of anti's.
