No. It's illegal. Even if it's just a little "dog food"

My place backs up to unit 3, as of Friday we've got a poacher jumping the fence and throwing corn on our property. If anybody sees anything fishy please let Leroy know, he came out and spent over an hour with me looking around last week. Pretty sure the guy was out there Friday afternoon while I found the corn, didn't find where he was sitting until Saturday.

I don't think he will be back as we painted posts this weekend and posted signs where he was coming through. But, if he does I've got cameras on cameras on cameras back there to find him.

I was up off 2756 about two weeks ago and found a few spots of "dropped" corn right at the entrance by the bridge and later stopped by a game warden. He didn't pay much attention to the dropped corn as there is not physical feeder.

Here is what I learned. Bow light is permitted, there is no curfew, They will tell you where they seen the pigs and as long as you are legal you are good to go. I called that same game warden out on another section (which he suggested) to pull me out as my pig of a 4x4 was stuck to the axles.

If anyone is interested in a hike through some thick brush, spot and stalk or even post up in a pop up blind. Let me know. I plan on spending some time out there this weekend past dark.

i was thinking about going out there sunday morning. I looked at Zone 5 a few weeks ago right off of 451, and there were quite a few pigs there just as i pulled up. This was around noon too.

I have wanted to check out lavon myself. I hope the whitetail population grows enough to allow hunting in the future! Until then it would be nice to get out and stick a few pigs.

Yeah, that would be nice if we could hunt white tail out there. I went up to Cooper WMA this season, saw quite a few deer up there.

I'm looking into Lavon as well. Squirrels (in season) and hogs too. Just talked with the office. Seems a pretty simple process, except that I've got a 4 door sedan. I'll bring the fat tire bike and a lone wolf.

No closed season for squirrels in Collin County and no limit.

Ended up having an intense hunt. Had two good size hogs come in behind the Cedar I was in. I tried to turn to pull back and they spooked. Then it was on, I put a stock on em and they led me to a waller which I sat at until dark. I could hear em walking around me but would not step out. Tomorrow I will go back to the waller and see what steps out.

Scouted small pieces in 2 different units. Saw plenty of fresh hog and deer tracks and one of the biggest rubs I've ever seen. Too bad there is no deer hunting! Plenty of potential for my boy and me. I will get permit signed and all official this week. It just felt good to be in the woods today.

I tried to walk out and spooked 9 or so and some where darn good size. Attempted to put a stalk on em and failed. Bumping them twice has me thinking I should back out and wait tell next weekend. I'm going to hold up in a clearing for a little bit longer then head out.

Glad you said something. I just read the regulations again. I know you can hand toss and use mineral blocks at Whitney. Should have paid more attention. Thanks.

It was a slow day for us yesterday as well. Buddy of mine seen a giant run across the clearing he was in but never gave him a shot opportunity. Maybe next weekend will bring a little luck.

I might try to head out one evening this week. I need to check out some other areas. I've been hunting zones 1 and 2 mostly over the last several months. Might head north to 9 one of those up there.
