1 more down out of San Gabriel. Popped him at about 25-30 yards out. Ran about 50 yards spraying blood and that was that.

Hardly. Heard a total of 14 shots from Friday until now. Didn't see much in the sky so I'm thinking dudes were shooting to make it seem like there was action.

Deer hunting plans got scuppered yesterday, so I went to Granger for the first time. I walked maybe 2-3 miles total, and saw 3 pigs.

The first two were unaware, and I had good wind, but I stalked too slowly. They were gone by the time I got into range. Lesson learned, move quick and keep them in sight...

The last one ran into a briar filled thicket and wouldn't come out, and there was no way in after him. Had to be home by noon, so I milled around a little while then left.

How many shots did you take? I don't duck hunt, and as many people I saw it there I didn't hear many shots. Was that just me?

New to hunting Granger for hogs, have hunted quite a bit for dove out there. After harvesting can we gut and skin/quarter them out there or do we need to bring them home for that?

Thanks

My understanding of the rules is “out of the public’s eye”, if that’s not true than I might be in Troy me for fitting mine out in the field Saturday night......

If you live close enough field dress and take the intact carcass with you. If you're camping on site I read they don't want you butchering animals in public view. So quarter and put in game bags to the cooler.

Travis we did right. Fed the other wildlife

There are ducks, but not a lot. More and more cormorants each year, but they are not a game bird, and well nigh inedible anyway.

Hey all, new member. First time caller, long time listener...whatever. I've been hunting ducks on Granger for several years. Last year, at the close of duck season, I got interested in hog hunting there. Been out a couple of times but no luck (it was really half hearted attempt anyhow). I was wondering if anyone on here would be interested in taking a newbie under their wing and show me the ropes of Granger Hogs for a hunt or two. I'm not looking for anyone's secret spot, nor am I looking to bring out a ton of buddies. I just want to learn the common strategies "unwritten" rules of hunting out there. planning to give it a quick try this Friday afternoon. Anyone willing to join me?

well, I've been interested in that. Heard about it a few years back while fishing and camping at the primitive. I may very well give it a whirl this year.

in the meantime. If I go out there this Friday, should I just scout and stalk or set up a blind/stand and a feeder/bait pile. I am concerned about the later with deer season going on.

Feed is fine but it’s not very helpful until the pigs know that spot as a place they can find food, need to be pretty regular with where you are spreading it so they get used to that area having food.

Went out this morning for awhile, saw 3 hogs but they were in a hurry to get somewhere. Saw a plethora of deer, some nice bucks too, they appear to be rutting.
