Do know about that. Found a lighter on that replaced the matches I left t the house, one solo weekend last year. Made my day/evening/night. Have left a few things though.

No doubt!! I wanted to have a cool story about how I was able to use it on a hunt... But I think the way it turned out is an even better story and the knife can stay safe at home from now on!

Hey, the upside is that the beast is like a big stinky pinata, filled with broadheads for the lucky hunter that eventually fishes them out!

Went out today in this perfect hog hunting weather with my buddy, and hit some of the sweet spots. We got on a nice group of hogs, but I was focused on trying to get my buddy a shot so he could get his first kill. No hogs taken today, but it's always good to get right up on 'em!

So we walked high staying on the road and walked about a mile until we got to the tank that is almost dry now. And walked across the dam hoping to see something black in the blood weeds. But only saw about 30 deer. We made a loop around the primative camp and did not see hogs until I came up with an idea that there may be hogs bedded in that thick nasty couple acre briar patch right next to the road and I was correct. Had 2 giants bust out of there after I sent my unarmed unbowed friend around the edge of that briar patch and I ran around to the other side when my buddy started swearing and saying hogs big hogs coming my way. What a rush. I couldn't get to them in time for a shot and instead of them running away from my friend and his downwind scent they ran. Trotted five yards past him onto the posted no hunting mesquite property. They were over 200 pounds each and one black and one blond. No shot but also there tearing that road up. Hog sign everywhere. I am going to bike back in there from now on my 41 year old knees were hurting after that three mile hike. Lol.

Joey: look at the corps map at:

You can bowhunt in any of the yellow areas. You can't hunt in the green areas.

It should be good hunting Saturday morning after the rain. What areas are you guy going to be at. I'll be there "somewhere" before sunrise.

I'm new to the forum but not to Granger. I hunted jack rabbits there in the cotton fields before there was a lake.

Maybe I'll catch up with some of you guys down the road.

izzy: Not sure what you mean by 'hunting camp'. You can camp (tent or RV) at one of four developed camping areas around the lake: Friendship Park, Willis Creek Park, Fox Park, or Taylor Park. Each of these offers a picnic shelters, water, fire pits, and restrooms. There is a primitive camping area across the river from gate 7 and the small boat launch ramp that offers: privacy. The primitive camping area is accessed either by small boat or by a noticeable hike in either from gate 9 (where SH 95 crosses the San Gabriel, or by hiking west from the parking area at the end of CR 496 (also called water plant road)

Joey I am somewhat new to the hog hunting however one successful way of hunting basic 101 wind in ya face and walk slowly and pay attention as ya approach a thicket or a dead blow. As for where the hogs are at everywhere it is just a matter of being in the right place at the right time.

I'll be there this afternoon until dark and early in the morning. Luckily we got a little more rain. I was out yesterday putting out some corn and the leaves had started to dry out a bit. It has been like walking on potato chips lately.

I have been to 7 and 6 about 5 times in the last week. Lots of sigh and I bumped a 200 lb. + pig out of the thick, just south of 6's upper parking area. Maybe 75 yards. Lesson learned, you don't have to be "deep" in the woods to score.

Good luck!

When I was loading to head home a few weeks ago at 7, I had a group of ~20 and a group of ~12 run RIGHT ACROSS THE ROAD, about 100yards from the parking area. It was both, ironic, hilarious, and sad, LOL.
