I have shot many an arrow into logs at Granger thinking they were pigs; sometimes they are. I just chalk it up the cost of hunting pigs at Granger.

I swear there was a log on Sunday that had ears and a snout! Started stalking it but after looking at it through the binos for a while I figured out it wasn't a pig.

Back to the discussion about broadheads, do most people use fixed blades? Also do you all use compounds or crossbows? I usually use a compound for deer but feel like my odds would be better with a crossbow. Really want to get my first pig out of the way.
Last question (for now), when you spook pigs up is it worth it to try to follow them or do they blow out of the area completely?

Actually, most people use mechanicals, most people I see hunting anyway. Broadheads are a very personal thing; I only use fixed blade. There are pros and cons to each type and you must weigh those and make up your own mind.

I only use a "vertical" bow, no crossbows for me. But several hunters at Granger use crossbows and have great success; nothing wrong with either one as long as it is legal, safe and you are proficient with it.

Following pigs depends on the pigs. When I blow pigs I will wait and see if they stop a short distance away; sometimes they will stop within range if you haven't blown them out too hard. I will follow if they aren't running for the hills; if they are, I go find another sounder to hunt up.

I got 6-7 rabbits at Sore Finger in the last 3 months but they have been getting harder to find.

I don't want to take anyone's prized spots but, maybe someone has noticed rabbits on their way to hogs?

Is your pig pipe kind of long chained to a tree painted camo?

Yup I had it chained somewhat to a small tree and a few weeks ago I just left it unchained to allow them to push it around more. I know it's got to be empty

I can honestly say Iíve gotten most my rabbits within 3-4 feet from me and they stay frozen still because they think you canít see them is just having a good eye in my opinion because they could be standing right next to you and you never know it lol

I went out to gate 8 (Pecan Grove) on Friday (it was fairly foggy) and walked around for a couple hours, couldn't find any rabbits (saw a lot of hogs at one point though). How can you tell when to slow down and try to actually find rabbits? Also have you noticed if they are near the water/creeks or more dry land? Out in the open or under trees? Since I am using a bow it's a lot easier shot if they aren't running first.

I also saw a ton of spent shells as I walked so I might not have gotten far enough back, maybe just a mile from the parking spot.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Iíve had the most luck bbetween gates six and seven in the Briarpatch is in those areas thereís Briarpatch is everywhere kind of with the reddish leaves and with rabbits I tend to find a more on dryland then near the creeks and as well when I see rabbits they run but I donít move I freeze theyíll quickly stop thinking itís still safe when Iíll take a shot right through the bushes and get them

Itís all about stealth got to catch them when theyíre laying down Iíve always taking shots at them while theyíre sleeping sometimes Iíve been fooled they do look like a log from a distance but sometimes youíll keep on walking and youíll pass them. average distance sometimes 15-20 yard shot or less.

The blood tracking looks like it would be a challenge should I shot a fixed broadhead Iv got a few DRTís and magnus stingers or should I shoot a mechanical Iv got 2 blade NAP bloodrunners or rages And Iím shooting 70lbs at 30 inch draw right around 280 FPS, 485 grain arrow (thatís includeing a 100 grain broadhead)

The blood tracking on these hogs (as I have learned) is a complete sonofabitch. Out of the 8 hogs I have shot I have only found 3. When you gut them, compare the heart/lung/liver volume to the gut volume. It's insane, there is probably 5-8x gut as their is real vitals. I am learning the hard way not to take "hopeful" shots because they barely bleed, so you really need them to just die right there. I had one which the arrow hit the shoulder stop about 500 yards from the shot, roll around in the dirt until the arrow snapped, and then disappear with the broadhead.

You can sneak up a lot closer than you would think when they are feeding or rooting around. I have gotten busted between 20-30yds a couple times but if the wind is good you can sometimes just sneak right up to them once they start feeding. If you hear them grunting or squealing it is the best because they are more focused and making their own noise at that point. Also smell will give you away more than sight (I had a hog at 25 yards see me, grunt at me, then go back to eating) so when I started I used a little smoke-puffer to check the wind direction.
