I was hoping one of you long timers would do this but I guess I'll get the ball rolling.

How are sheds coming along and anyone seen hogs during the day?

Haven't found any sheds yet and the hogs have disappeared from my stand. Guess with all the feeders going off they don't have usual rounds. But I did come across this fishing off the Nolan lake dam.

Normally he would have gotten some rock rain, but the kids were with me and I didn't want them freaking out or trying to come see it. I simply took a pic and got out of his area.

Went by my feeder today and the spinner plate was stuck... maybe thats why the hogs havent been around?!!!!

Under the new policy Yes. Commercial stands are OK. You need to have it properly tagged and Grid coordinates turned in. The new policy of no stands in trees in the unguided areas is to keep people from getting in those old tree stands and falling and breaking their neck. We convinced the BG that when we use commercial ladder and climbers that one it takes 2-3 people to put them up safely and two commercial stands come with safety harnesses and we use them.
I hope this helps.
When you buy your License make sure you read the FT Hood reg they change every year and there will be a lot of changes this year.

When you qualify with you bow, can you use the practice BH's or do you have to use the ones you hunt with?

HD use to be Broad head but I think that is one of the things that is changing this year. also if you qualified last year you do not need to qualify this year.
But I will say it again when the new book comes out please read it. There are things in there we dont know until we see it in black and white.

Kevin I still have all of those coolers for you, I will work with Tim to come up with your styro-foam cut-outs.

Well i guess lubing the spinner plate on the feeder and a little bit of Pig Out brought them back in and on camera. The only bad thing is they are at 3:30am. Had a couple hornless bucks too but after another hour of walking, still no sheds. May have to try another section to find me some.

I was just looking at the area access open/closed list and at the area hunt map. Not all the areas are listed on the open/closed list. Like 105 for example. Does that mean it is always open?

HD I have attached the 2010-2011 guide but that will change here in a few months when we get the 2011-2012 guide. Bottom line the web site is ran by a fellow hunter and guide he is not affiliated with the sportsman center or range control. As it states in the guide it is the hunterís responsibility to check in and out the access roster is a half arse way of planning IMO. The best way call teletrac and if it is down call the sportsman center area access 287-5847. This # will get you the guys in the back not the girls up front. If you call 532-4552 who knows who will answer the phone.
I hope this helps

The new guide usually comes out when they start to sell the new lic on the 15 Aug of each year.

It doesn't mean anything. The only thing that means anything is Teletrac the day you call. And no, 105 is not always open. Most days it is, but I've caught it closed a couple times. Why? I have no idea. It's best not to ask. When you start asking questions, strange and undesireable things sometimes happen.

went out last night and was able to get two pigs one was about 80lbs and the other was around 30. I wanted to use my bow or TC but the 30-06 won the bet (Im almost out of pork) oh well fresh pork is better than none. Im going to try to make some Canadain Bacon out of the straps the 30lb pig im going to BBQ it whole.I hope it all turns out ok.

Not that I am partial or anything, but go see Aaron in Lampasas. Nocked & Loaded, there on 2nd Street.

I hear Eagle Eye Ellis is pretty good at twisting strings and such as well, but that is just what I heard.

Depending on you bow, the DL might involve getting a new cam/module.
