Did you see anyone hunting GRXH hunting with out their orange on?

Waterfalls and jumping in the river sounds like my kinda party.

Ha, good idea. Or you could put them on trash duty for the campsite and surrounding area. Most on the GRXH follow the rules and are respectful of the land and river, but every group has a few who think differently. Besides the blaze orange point, I'll throw out another friendly reminder to be respectful of others on the river during GRXH. I know a few kayakers / canoers who made formal complaints after almost getting hit by a member on this board. From what i remember, that member was drinking while operating his boat.

Dang Dano !!!! Guess I should get my hunting license, APH pemit, hunter safety card, note from the teacher, dispensation from the Pope, etc... for the next GRXH. Orange vest, orange hat, change of undies. Probably should have me PFD and water safety card for my canoe, as well. Alot to remember for next year.

I really thought hard austin30 maybe LOE. He's seems really professional and well spoken. I'm not surprised if he was a former Seal who left cause it wasn't exciting enough for him and decided to work in the CIA before getting hired by the TPWD to investigate and handle Infractions at granger. Great to have someone like him looking out for us

Yep!

the only way to hunt Granger in the hot months, is to bait and wait near a place where they are going to wallow.

Will consider that, have the permethin, did not plan on doing too much walking anyway. Will probably have another longbow that should be here this week, or so. MOAB will get a rest. Killing all thos pigs at GRXH got her tired. New bow is a Big River 21st Century clone that pulls @3# more (63# was a bit light) and will be pushing the new Grizzly Instinct heads. They got through 1/2" plywood like a 12 gauge slug.

I'm thinking about bringing some stinky corn and some fresh to set up a good site and maybe bring a short ladder to cut my scent signature. I'll PM you both if and when Iget to go. First look is the Wednesday thru Friday before the next holiday. Then head home saturday evening. Hopefully with a cooler full of pork.

It's finally here after 2 months and 12 days. I'm in love with the look other than the cams, which will be going back to be coated to match the bow. Now for some accessory shopping.

Real classy. I'm glad this group is so sensitive to those who had lost friends and love ones to DUI / BUI accidents.

Please re-think drinking next time you take control of a boat. If you don't care about your own safety, please consider the others you share the lake with.

Should get good reception even at Granger, Hee-hee. Wood bows don't have any static. Looking to have a very pretty Big River Longbow in a few days.

Dirtymike - that is a sweet paintjob on that bow. Is that how it comes from the factory or did you have it done custom?

I've been reading the boards for a couple of weeks, may as well introduce myself. I've just taken up archery/bowhunting. Never hunted hogs, as a kid we'd drive around in my granddad's pickup and shoot deer on our ranch. That was over 25 years ago, so Im pretty much starting from scratch.

You may start seeing a blue dodge ram at some of the sites, that'll be me. Hope to meet ya'll in person.

The bow is an Obsession Evolution, and they come in lots of cool paint jobs.

Hey Guy, I'm new to the site. I just moved back to the Hutto area from Cali. I am from here but I spent the last eight years stationed out there in the Navy. I just got into bow hunting last year out in cali and did a little turkey hunting. I have hunted deer and coyotes when I was growing up on my grandparents land, just rifle though. I'm looking to learn more about Granger lake and would like to get out there soon, once I pick up my public land hunting permit. Already got my hunting and fishing combo. Would anybody be interested in showing me the ropes out there at Granger and hunting hogs?
Thanks Guys.

As stated by others, welcome and there are many fellas here that hunt Granger regularly. The true Baptism is the GRXH, end of Feb annually.

Just show up and hunt. Nothing like boots on the ground to get your heart going and the pigs flying. The true baptism is GRXH.

Thanks Sneaky. I'll save a back strap for you. The Bird's Eye maple laminations don't really pop out but they are sweet looking. The Zircote riser with the red strip is sharp. Have to find out what wood that is. Elk horn tips and skinny fast flight string. Hope to take it to Camp Bullis Sunday for hogs/ exotics.

GRXH, where can I find info on this? Is it a TBH event or something the county,txpw or some other organization puts on? I am really new to all of this in case you cant tell.

I just bought some snake boots today and picked up some broad heads, hoping to start hunting some hogs at Granger soon enough.

Welcome! Don't forget your public land permit and hunter orange. Btw the Granger Ranger Extreme hunt is a TBH thing started here many years ago. I have had the pleasure of attending 4 outta the last 5! Its a heck of a time! Its every year in February. Follow this thread and look for the GRXH thread in January.
