The kiddos having fun is what it's all about. Granddaddy has fun when the kiddos do too.

Wish my SNL would let me take the grandboys squirrel hunt-n. He downplays hunting every time. Their mother will lettem go. She is all for them get-n out and doing stuff like hunting. But I don't want to cause a ruckus.

Had some questions.

On the first page the remote light was mentioned,anyone have any specific ones that work well? Also is the permit still free to hunt there? Interested in going and taking a look at the area, it's not to far of a drive for me.

I haven't made it out in a while, but last time I came in from a different direction. Even though I was only about 350 yards (maybe a little more) it was completely different. There was a heck of a lot of sign, just nothing moving.

This whole area was rooted up, probably 30 feet long, by 10-12 feet wide.

If ya take a look at the bottom left of that pic, you can see a deep waller, you just can't make out how wide, but here is a pic, where I laid my bow INSIDE the hole and it was easily 10" deep:

It has been hard to put the fishing pole down my brother! I want to get back out before the heat of summer sets in. Does anyone know when the new mastery plan will be passed?

The very far south end of Zone 2 holds the highest concentration of hogs. Go to the creek and cross (yes you have to get wet, it won't kill you) and then head south east for a long ways and you will find the pigs.

I emailed the lake office awhile ago to obtain some information to hunt around Lavon Lake but no answer so far. I'll have to find some time to visit due to work schedule. Would love to be able to just hunt right after work for some hogs

once you get your initial permit and parking tag you can renew it online every year and just print it up.

Yeah, the problem is my work schedule. It'll take me approximately 40 minutes to get there WITHOUT traffic and by the time I get there, the place would be closed. To my understanding, you can no register online.

I just moved to the DFW area from California not too long ago so I've not been there before. I may just have to do that one of these days. Need to find a new hunting partner too since my brothers are not wanting to get into archery and the wife has a cow when I go solo hunting

I'll probably go sometime in June since I will have a day off for my birthday from work. That should work
