Yes sir... I called it early. Nice to talk with ya over at Louie Mueller's place. That was some good eatin. I am not sure if that pit fire caused the long wait or not, but its always worth it.

So you can see why we get irritated when public "hunters" show up out there, leave their trash, wound animals, and ruin our hunting and then tell us they're doing us a favor. Don't get me wrong there are some GREAT guys out there and those are the ones we don't notice. They slip in, slip out, and take their trash home. But as anyone knows it only takes a few bad apples to give a bad reputation to a whole group. This goes both ways and I realize that.
To sum all of this up I'll say one last time. How do you think the people around here will react when we see poachers out there, and we see deer carcasses with their heads cut off, and we see people with rifles, and we see the trash on the land that our families once owned and then we're told the public "hunters" are doing us a favor?
I also grew up in the area. I went on a cub scout arrowhead hunting trip to Gr. lake before it had filled up for the first time. My high school was 15 minutes away, and we use to skip school just to go out to the beach and swim to the stump. I played football and graduated from High School with the legendary, bank fisherman Edward Murray. I have been fishing, camping, water skiing, hunting and hanging out at that lake, off and on, my whole life. I started bowhunting out there after I moved back to the area 7 yrs ago, so I wasn’t around for the hay-day. I can only imagine how much better the place was with less pressure.

So, not only do I see where you are coming from, but I can also sympathize with you. But none of us have anything to do with the fact that Williamson County is, and has been for a while, the fastest growing County in the State. And some of you, may or may not know, that hunting(especially bowhunting) after many, many years on the decline is now rising in popularity. It’s a growing sport. Therefore, statistically speaking, not only have a huge amount of people moved within an hour drive of Gr. Lake, but a large amount of bowhunters as well. I know you understand this, and you don’t have to like it. But, almost everybody has a similar story. Back in the 90’s the city of Austin told everyone to get out and vote to give them the power to make Forest Creek a permanent recreational area for mtn. biking and hiking. At the time, mtn. biking was a new sport and there were not many places to ride. After everybody got out and voted to give them this power, they decided to turn it into a bird sanctuary and kicked out the mtn. bikers/hikers forever. As if the golden cheeked warbler didn’t have enough cedar tree’s already. At the time it really stunk, but the sport kept on growing and today there are more places to ride then you have time to ride them. I don’t know the same will happen to bowhunting, I realize the dynamics are different, but I do believe in the strength of numbers. I think in the long run, bowhunters will benefit from more popularity of their sport.

So many people come on this forum to rant about non-hunting issues, so I don’t mind someone coming on here to vent their frustrations on a direct hunting topic. But I do think your preaching to the quire a little bit. Not every person walking around out there is on the green screen. And You, Me, Bo, Koonce, etc. all know that the poaching and trash issues are not all the out of towners. I think this is what you were referring to when you stated is goes both ways. This has been public land for like 4+ decades now. Personally, I don’t think it matters if you live in Hare, Taylor, Round Rock or Houston, we are all public land users. Therefore we are in it together. We can either play nice, or not.

There is one thing that remains constant in this society we live in and that is change.

I can be out at anytime. Texasbowhunter and I was think sometime between 10 and noon. But I can go out earlier and then meet up with him. I'd like to spent the day out there and just check my normal spots to see the damage and gauge whether its worth goin out anymore. I've been reading the earlier pages of this thread and over the years several hogs have been seen and killed after the helo hunt it just gets a little tougher I'm on page 35 of reading lol. Lots of good old information from years past

Thanks buddy. Boston butts here too. We thought we had enough casing. We bagged up the last of it in 1lb tubes. Just a meat and high temp cheese mix.

Wow, glad I was wearing rubber knee high boots as I read through most of that.

At least the Granger Rangers are famous for something.

Did we get a confirmed number of corpses? Should make hunting the thick stuff fun for awhile. Statistics indicate you have to kill 70% of the population to keep the herd in check. That is 70% each and every year. Tactical nukes anyone.

Chris; I'll drop you a PM if I can break away to get up there, I'd like to hunt with you.

Well just got in from a long day of figuring out how bad the damage is....went to the spot early this morning and saw more than what I wanted as far as dead hogs. It's to bad. The heli knew where to hit them. I think they read this thread. I went behind the PC and towards the cemetery next. Samething. discouraged I went below the dam. Saw some fresh tracks but as I got back to my area I found more dead flesh

Joey, how is the ankle doing?

Birddog66, I agree that was very well put.

I would have never thought they could have shot them in the spot. From the videos on youtube it looks like any wooded areas are hard to shoot hogs out of. Were they all killed up against the new fence?

We killed 5 a couple of nights ago on a field bordering the WMA. The pigs may be spread out but there are still some out there. Those pigs had been coming out for a while and it looks like the chopper didn't even spook them.

I'm sure their are isolated pockets of pigs pushed to private land that will eventually move back onto the WMA
